My Snow - Mixed Media



Hi Dearies


Today I'm sharing this new project which has few cool techniques and I truly loved working on this and the outcome was indeed lovely to see...

I used glue gun technique on top of the canvas with some glitter adhered with 3D gel and loved the sparkle and icicle effect.  Then stuck few tissue paper crushed and dry set it and coated with heavy white gesso for a rough texture. Chose my centre pic, adhered it with DCWV Arctic paper stack stripes, distressed the edges with my Ranger Distresser and stuck it with foam for dimension.  I used ColourArte Twinkling H2O's  (Blue) and roughly coloured the outline from the centre pic for the blue shades....by then the tissue paper was totally dry. Now I used my Archival Coffee bean and Orange inks and distressed the right corner of my canvas for a shady effect which could coordinate with my centre pic. Now gave a dry coat of white gesso for a texture and lightened the whole canvas. Stuck handmade flowers, Spanish dry moss, wooden chippies, beads, pine cones, glitter snowflake cut into pieces and adhered it across the centre pic, Styrofoam balls in different sizes - adhered all these with 3D gel.  Hand wrote the tittle with my new calligraphy pen and distressed the edges, fussy cut few butterflies coordinating the whole layout and.....thaadaaaa......it was looking lovely indeed.

Mixed Media - Tag1



Hi Everyone....

Today I share a  mixed media Tag with you all.

I adhered watercolour paper on to the tag, and sprayed mists on to the watercolour paper and removed the excess and allowed to set. Then I applied distress inks on to the stencil and created a back ground for the tag and used a small mandala motif stamp and randomly stamped on the tag.  Now I used DustyAttic Stencil - Distressed Grid  and applied Prima Heavy white jesso.. and heat set it.  Now adhered few flowers, leaves and twine on to the tag.  Lightly applied soft gel and sprinkled little blue/green/ golden glitter randomly on to the tag. Took a white gel pen and outlined the tag completely for an uplift and wrote a sentiment with my new calligraphy pen ....which I'm quite experimenting now for all my projects.  

And finally loved the way the Tag came up.

I'm enclosing this little art to the following:

For U - Venetian Card


Hi All.....

Today I'm here to share with you a 6.5 X 6.5" card with a matching Card box which I did for one of my buddy. I used white Neena Card stock as base and layered it with pink and white card stock on top of each other. I used  Dove Craft- Floral Muse Designer paper and distressed the edges with Ranger Distress tool.  Now I die cut the doily from Spell Binder doily die and a mask from Spellbinders Venetian Collection. I adhered  lace at two corners of the distressed edges..Now glued all the roses and embellies on to my card. Lastly, I used zig marker pen and outlined the card for a stitch effect..

I matched it with a card box  and adhered a label from Spellbinder label die and taaaddaa...my card was ready to be gifted.

Few close up shots :




I am enclosing this card for the following :

Mixed Media - Passion !



Hi All......

Good Morning.....and I'm back with yet another canvas ....totally adored the way this piece turned up.

I have used these products in the above project:

Prima White gesso, Prima 3d Heavy Gel, Wendy Vecchi's crackled Texture paste, Crafters Workshop Stencil - Rock TCW573S, Finnabiar Artstones, Dusty Attic Heart Attack Border, ColourArte - Silk Glaze acrylics - Turquoise/Blue, Handmade Foam Flowers, Resin frame, Mulberry flowers/leaves, DCWV Paper strip, Glitter Balls/Prills, Pearls, Border Chips, Metal embellishments, Fussy cut Butterflies.

I coated Prima White gesso  first and dry set the canvas, then used Crafters Workshop stencil and applied the Crackled Texture paste and allowed to dry. Later gave a nice wash of ColourArte Silk Glaze acrylics and started arranging my centre pic adhered it to a strip of  DCWV card stock and played around arranging my layout with handmade foam flowers, metal embellis, prills, chippies.  I used Dusty Attic heart attack border strip, I cut the hearts individually and heat embossed it with Zing Silver embossing powder and randomly adhered it on to the layout.  I also used pearls to enhance it a bit more and used  gel white pen for highlights around the pearl. Lastly stuck micro glitter prills with 3D heavy gel and randomly placed the fussy cut butterflies around the layout......

I'm quite happy....that I have been experimenting a lot off late....being a beginner and without a tutor just by following few really cool and nice artists around the globe.

I'm enclosing few close up's here....

Mixed Media - Celebrate



Hi Friends!!


Today I'm here to share a beautiful canvas.  I enjoyed working on this project. I have used Papericious Wedding collection paper pack for the scrap layout. The paper was very much coordinating with the theme challenge of this month ...hence I choose it.

I used Prima white heavy gesso along with Diecuts and more Raindrop Stencil. I used ColourArte Twinkling H2O's Yellow Rose and gave a neat coat for shimmery yellow randomly around the layout. Then stacked my centre pic with doily cut in half and adhered it... next used coordinating DCWV strips of cardstok and tag behind the centre pic.  Later used splashes of black heavy gesso,Lindy's starburst Red Rudolph's Nose Red and Poker orange and Brown splashes. Later embellished with Tiara along with pollens and small gardenia flowers.  Then used Cherry Lynn's Gardenia flower strip and made roses and highlighted with Diamond Dust for sparkle and also used Spellbinders Dies for Small Daisies in grey and white and used glitter micro beads,fussy cut coordinating butterflies and adhered them along the layout and applied InkaGold  randomly on the edges of the layout for a shimmery effect.

The word Celebrate itself fascinated me to create this little piece ....and I loved the way the whole layout turned up.

Hope you all enjoyed what  I shared here.  More close up pics ....

Mixed Media - LAVENDER LOVE




Hi All...........

I'm here to share a new mixed media canvas.  I fell in love with the picture I choose for this particular layout.  It was quite romantic about the scenery. I went wild and vibrant with the textures, colours and experimented with the whole project.

I used cheese cloth,tissue paper, Prima texture paste, Prima white heavy gesso, Finnabir art stones, Artanthology stone texture paste, micro beads, rhinestones, handmade flowers, spellbinders die cuts, Dustyattic jewel chippies (The original jewel chippies were used for a different project) and the negatives, which I felt were quite useful here, I had these chippies used with some embossing powders and stuck it along with the flowers and added micro glitter here and there. The main picture I stuck it in three layers to give a 3D look which has the river flowing, so that it looks as the stream is flowing down towards and stuck coordinating dragonflies and butterflies flying along with the whole layout.  This gave me an imaginary presence on the whole. It was quite romantic. Romance is not all about a male nd female holding each other.....but I felt this was quite a lovely scenetic appeal for LOVE/ROMANCE ...... its all about celebrating a feeling. What say? (LOL)!

I spread the whole layout in a manner that it looks quite natural with the centre picture coordinating with all the elements used in the project.

Enclosing more closeup shots.....





I used the cheesecloth, tissue paper, art stones, stone texture paste and colourarte's twinkling H2o's  on the canvas.











Now after I gave a neat wash of colours and started sticking my centre picture with all the required embellies.






This is Dustyattic chippy.....I used the jewel part chippy to another project and use the corner negatives here .....the S shaped curvy  joint....which I placed in the centre was cut and embossed with lavender embossing powder and stuck along with other embellishment.
                               

Below are some closeup shots....for you all to see the textures....


                   








Hope you all enjoyed this as much as I loved working on it.
