#Birds - DT layout for Alexandra Renke

Hello there crafty friends,

I'm back today with a new layout for the Alexandra Renke Design Team!

Have you guys seen the brand new Bird papers in the AR shop?! Oh my goodness!!! They are all so beautiful and special! I can't wait to see what everyone makes with them!

For today's layout I chose one of my favorite papers from this collection, Designpapier Paradies große pinkige Spatzen, because well...colors! Am I right?! Such vibrant and happy colors, just like I like it!

So to start with, I fussy cut lots of birds (for future projects too) while I was watching some of my favorite series. Usually I do this when I'm not in a crafty mood! I just can't watch TV without doing something else though, so combining the two works great for me.

I then selected a bunch of papers that I thought matched the colors of the birds well:

Using the 3D feathers die (3D Federn), I die cut a bunch of feathers from the above papers.

For my background I chose the following paper:
Eventually I ended up cutting it up and combining it with white card stock to create my background. The white card stock I always use is this one:
I adhered the two pieces of papers to the background, then lined up all the feathers in an arch kind of shape. I glued them down in the middle, so that I could still bend up the edges.

I layered some tissue paper behind my photo and glued it all down on the left side of my paper.  I added my title, journaling, date.

Now the birds were ready to embellish my page! I used 3d foam adhesive to glue them down. Last but not least, I went through my enamel dots and pulled out some colors that went with my color scheme.

That's it! Easy peasy! What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

See you soon!
