Bird Family Layout in Mixed Media style

Hello to all!
Happy Sunday!

Important: Yayyyy! So happy that this project is chosen as a winner here:
Winner's Badge
Today, I am showcasing a layout of a Happy Bird family with a cute scene! In this creation, I used Ripping and tearing technique!

I started with a layout. I covered my cardboard with shiny blue handmade paper and added one more layer to my base in the lime green floral handmade paper.

The wooden black background which is peeking from a ripped circle is dry embossed and I applied different acrylic colors and Inka gold to bring out the wooden texture. The top layer is the centre cut and ripped open to reveal on this second layer beneath.

The top layer is a corrugated sheet and gave a coat of black chalk paint and then I applied brown embossing paste through a stencil. Highlighted with different acrylic paints, Inka old gold and silver color. I added some stamping leaves too but not able to picturise them clearly.

Straws, some birds are fixed to the LO. And I added a multilayer of more inked corrugated borders at the bottom. Added some die cut borders in white and embellished it with some natural paper brown color flowers, pollens, mulberry flowers in shades of blue and some stockings wired net leaves.

On a silver metal sheet, I dry embossed it using a stencil and die cut some more hearts and added them too. The big heart is heat embossed 8 to 9 times using platinum silver embossing powder, looking so graceful! In the end, added some splatters in white using gesso. I finished it off with an  MDF sentiment-  "I am so ready for our future together!"
