Wonderful Life: Crafty Cardmakers

Hello Friends!!
Today, I am going to share a mixed media canvas, this time for the monthly challenge over at Crafty CardmakersAs the theme for current challenge #209 is Water, so I decided to alter an old mdf piece by using some easily available waste material, to go with the theme and made this mixed media mini canvas.

This month challenge is hosting by our so talented team mate  Josephine
You can enter anything is fine, a card, scrapbook layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Water theme.
Hope you will join us at our amazing challenge.
Click here, to join us our challenge with Water theme at Crafty Cardmakers.
Here is my project: 


Friends, here, I am sharing an easy and quick step by step tutorial for making this Mixed Media Canvas "Wonderful Life":

Step 1: Select a canvas or mdf place mate of your choice, cover it with a cotton fabric and create some textures by shrinking fabric in the lower part of the canvas. Now add some easily available waste items like Pistachio shells to create more dramatic background. These pistachio shells will give the perfect look of stones on canvas. Let it dry and then cover it with white gesso or home made texture paste and let it dry.
Step 2: Now spray Lindy's Starburst spray- Sassy Sapphire over half of the canvas and add some Mont Marte white acrylic paints to create some sea theme background.
 Step 3: Now spray some Lindy's Starburst spray- Drop Dead Gorgeous Green on the part which consists pistachio shells and give some algal look to the background by adding some more green and brown shades of  Mont Marte acrylic paints. Let it dry completely by using heat gun.
Step 4: Add some textures to the canvas through a stencil and dry it completely.
Step 5: Then use some embellishments like foliage, leaf die cuts, some colored cheese cloth pieces, some dried natural elements and more.
Step 6: Make this canvas more realistic using some sea shell embellishments. Remember to use some more strong glue to stick these embellishments like Prima's Heavy Body Gel/ Gloss gel or any other easily available and affordable strong adhesive. 
Step 7: For final finish add a sentiment using Tim Holtz idea-Ology - Metallic Stickers.

Diary of Events

Hello Friends!!

Here, I am sharing my another project as an entry for March challenge at PRIKA All About Crafts- Blog, and "Old Turned New" inspired with the theme.

This art page made using Lindy's Magical Shaker set and Prima-Finnabair Rust Effect Paste.
This is my first attempt for making an art journal page. I used an old altered cute note book which I gifted to my caring and handsome brother on his birthday. I made this art page inside this altered note book, when my brother came to me on his vacations.



He just love the splash of colors and rustic look of it, so now he is also a big fan of Lindy's
I had a lot of fun creating the background!
Done some textures by using handmade texture paste and created a mix of loads of Lindy's Magical Shakers. At the end done some stenciling and added some sentiments by using Tim Holtz idea-Ology Clipping stickers. The Rust Effect Paste are from Prima, 
Just love the the end results. I am mad about these Lindy's Range.

Few quick steps of making this art page:

I clicked a few pics of the process and I would like to share them with you all, along with the process to get there! Here are more pictures of this page at the end.
I started with a Papericious-Sigma card stock (Ivory) and cropped it same size to stick inside the note book. First I used Prima Clear Gesso for preparing its base.
To add more dimension, I added textures on left page by using homemade texture paste and stencil from my stash. I dried it thoroughly. Then sprayed water with spray bottle and started adding loads of Lindy's magical to make a color splash. 
Same process followed on the right page too, but without adding any texture to it. Again dried it thoroughly, in this step I left it for over night and in the morning, all colors mixed up so well. Have a look.
Then I used Rust effect paste, I have added rust effect pastes on all the edges using my index finger to give it some more interest. 
 Then I added texture to right page by using Brown rust effect paste and created some tree shapes with the help of stencil. I dried it thoroughly and then added some Lindy's magical with the help of fine tip brush to bring out some textures, dimensions, and a scenic effects as I imagined.
Once, I was happy with my art page, I added sentiments by using some clipping stickers from Tim Holtz Idea-ology to give it a finish look.

Spring: A Fresh Beginning


Hello, sweet friends!!

Here I am sharing my project which I made using supplies from Lindy's Gang and Itsy Bitsy store.
I enjoyed a lot making my very first Mixed Media Tags.

This project is my entry for PRIKA All About Crafts- Blog, and as per theme of current challenge,  "Old Turned New". 


I was so much inspired with the mood board of March Challenge at Lindy's Gang blog.  These colors are so springy and eye soothing. So I decided to choose the color scheme as per Lindy's color challenge graphic, because I wanna play with them too. 

Here I am sharing a short and crisp tutorial for these Mixed Media Tags.

Started making these cute tags by using some old cerelac boxes, as these box are so good in density. 


Done some die cutting using metal dies.



Then covered the tags using Mont Marte modelling paste, created some texture (streaks) with the help of brush.



Done some more stenciling to add some phrases to my tags, as I wanted to gift these tags to one of my crafty friend.
Once dry, I used loads of Lindy's sprays and magical shakers to give them colorful background and then after drying properly, outlined the some texture along with phrases using black permanent (OHP) maker. 


Placed some little birdie flowers along with some die cut elements. I used some Lindy's sprays for coloring the die cuts and cheese cloth pieces which added by me decorate these cute tags.

At the end, I used some sentiments from Tim Holtz idea-Ology metallic stickers to finish these cute tags.

And here are some more close ups:
