Let’s Get Started.....
To begin with you will need a 5" x 5" piece of corrugated cardboard. Remove the top layer of paper to reveal the corrugated texture of the cardboard leaving some pieces in place. Ink the entire surface.
Cut the burlap to fit 3/4 of the cardboard surface. Adhere.
Pull a few of the burlap pieces out of each side as shown below to give it a frayed edge look.
Add the Ice Resin covered vintage paper. Prepare it the night before by placing a one gallon zip lock bag down on a hard surface, place the vintage paper down and cover with Ice Resin. Let set for at least 24 hours. For this project I just randomly tore the paper.
Using the Spellbinders Bird One Blank, you will place a few drops of red alcohol ink and pat it with a paper towel.
Die cut the Ice Resin covered vintage paper with Spellbinders Birds One Die, then cover with the same alcohol ink on the back side and pat with a paper towel.
Adhere the wing portion directly to the bird blank with Fabri Tac.
Add two 3D foam squares to the bird body, cut the square in half to make it as small as you can. Place on top of the blank lined up with the adhered wing.
Add the bezel with the die cut corrugated cardboard to fit inside and adhered down, string the burlap twine and use Fabri-Tac on the back side of the bezel to keep it sturdy. Wrap the twine around the back and tie.
The possibilities are
endless....you can create a multitude of projects from cards and layouts to
mixed media wall decor and so much more with just a few simple products!
I could not resist making another project with the same products to show
you another very quick way to use them in home decor to make a bird seed
In this project, instead of using alcohol ink on the back side of the bird, I used paint. On the metal bezel itself I used the red alcohol ink and added some green. This looks beautiful on my mantel.
