About Myself:

I'm a Human Resource professional and have been working all through and been crafting as well.  Its been an year and a half that I took a break and have dedicated my time to my passion for creating.  I'm married and have a teenage son...its  a small family.  I have been into fine arts and painting having learnt Indian traditional art like Tanjore and Mysore paintings which is totally on gold foil and usually we depict Gods in these kind of paintings.  I have done my finearts certified course and have been making paper crafts like cards/albums/gift boxes/ scrapbook layouts/ mixed media/altered art/journals/ decoupage......and so on. So art is something which has been in me from the beginning and also a great stress buster in my life. I love to make more mixed media projects as it gives freedom to use everything in your stash and nothing goes waste...which I do include in my work. I'm a self learnt mixed media artist. I love to play with colors and paper.....create something which gives happiness.  Apart from crafting Music is something I love, Travel too.

Its a great learning to be among such beautiful souls who bring joy to our lives by their work.  I have learnt the same way too.  Hope my work brings an opportunity to learn and create more with you all.  Enclosing my few links which I have recently worked ...more on my blog....

















I'm comfortable in all mediums.......water colors/acrylics....any. I would love to experiment on new techniques and I always try to bring it in all my works and each work I ensure I bring some variation and each is different from the other and there' s no repetition of the same work. I'm comfortable in mixed media, scrap booking, cards, altered...etc.Currently I'm DT for

An Angel of Hope


Hello Ladies....

Im here to share a new work with you all for few challenges for the month. I wanted to create an anceint statue for a change and this is what I could create with. I was inspired by few sculptures of ancient Greece and took an inspiration to create this project. Greek sculptors were particularly concered with propotion, poise and the idealised perfection of the human body and their figures in stone and bronze which have become some of the most recognisable pieces of art ever produced by any civilization.

The sculpture of ancient Greece from 800 to 300 BCE took early inspiration. Greek artists would reach a peak of excelence which captured the human form in a way never seen before and was copied. Greek sculptors were particularly concerned with propotion, poise and idealised perfection of the human body and their figures in stone and bronze ...which have become recognisable pieces of art every products in any civilization.

I have tried to imagine my way of the same and created this little piece of art with some lovely textural background and effects.

I have used a broken manequin, drapped fabric with fabric stiffner (Powertex), fiber paste from Itsybitsy, rust paste, Deco Art crackle medium, wood chippies from ItsyBitsy, laces, embossing texture paste from Itsy Bitsy and Lindys Magicals (Guten Tag Teal, Time Travel Teal, Bavarian blue, Yodelling Yellow,Cowbunga Copper), added few natural twigs for this composition.


Few close ups

 






Would love to share with

Got inspired with the yellow twirls...colors....white textures....feathers and this is was my insirational piece of art..


Will share a few more before the month ends.

Happy Crafting 
Cheers!!!

Snowy Day!!



Hello Ladies.......

Welcome to Off the Rails Blog and this is my latest work for this months challenge and also I share a tuto with you all.  Hope this inspires you guys to create and share with us for this month. We have a lovely wintery snowy mood board. Come along and play with us.



Firstly I choose a pattern paper which suits to my LO. Later added Prima Heavy gesso run through Visible Images Stencil and smudged few places randomly.


Next added few dry moss behind my focal image.


For background color ..I added LSG- Magical Blachelor Button blue and 13arts spray spreading it with my misty.


Once heat set ....now I added Wendy Vicchi's Embossing paste with spatula for snowy finish on the dry grass and heat set it.


Now layered all the flowers and embelishments and stuck them around the LO. I heat set few leaves chippies with LSG embossing powder and added little more embossing paste on to the flowers and  leaves and heat set them for a snowy finish. And the final finish is here. Some close up shots....






Hope you guys enjoyed this creation of LO. Cant wait to see what you guys come up with.

Happy Crafting
