Birds Of A Feather

Happy Saturday!! I'm so psyched about the holiday weekend for the fact that I get a few days off from work! Phew, sometimes you just need a break!  Right?  Hopefully a long weekend equates to some much needed scrap time.

Today, I have a couple of projects that I created for Creative Imaginations using Debbie Mumm's gorgeous Song Birds Collection. This is one of those lines that I fall more and more in love with every time I look at it. It's filled with adorable little treasures like the tiny peach flowers in the die cut pack to the clever little phrases that inspired the title for my layout.

I started my layout by layering patterned papers, cardstock, and a border punched strip of wood to create the background. I lightly spritzed the lightest part of the background with Luminarte Butternut Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist.

Since this line has a lot of nature elements, I added flowers, a berry spray, and jute to add to textural interest.  I also layered a couple of birds that I fussy cut from patterned paper on top of a cardboard house from Basically Bare.

I used a paint brush and Luminarte Butternut Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist to paint the chipboard photo corners.

I used the design of the layout and some of the same elelements to create a frame.

Here are some close ups of the details.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!!
