" Believe in Yourself " - Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial | DT Inspiration for ItsyBitsy

Hey guys
Today, on Valentine's Day i am sharing a mixed media canvas with you all which I made to celebrate love. We all wait for the one person who will be there with us forever...someone who will have your back, listen to you and come what may never leave your side have but most of us fail to realize that we have that person within ourselves.
I am basically celebrating Valentine's Day with my very first Valentine...MYSELF. Its sounds silly but I think even when you have no will always have yourself...ALWAYS AND FOREVER so LOVE YOURSELF and BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.......and TRUST YOURSELF.
This is also my DT Inspiration post for ItsyBitsy and you can read a full tutorial to make this project by clicking HERE
I love pinks...its my fav color and I tried a lot to restrain myself from using it...but I finally gave into the temptation. I wanted to give this canvas a very delicate and feminine look and so I have used multiple shades of pinks, peaches, coral and whites along with hints of black, grey and beige. To achieve this look I used lacy background paper and a stencil to mimic the look.
It was really fun to play with flowers and embellishments to bring in a feminine look....and the sentiment was framed and mounted with layers of papers to add more interest to the focal sentiment. The final touches came from a lot of sequins, glitter, mico beads and splatters. Here are some more closeups of my project...I hope you all like it.

I am putting this project up at the following blog challenges :-
  1. More Than Words February Challenge - Always and Quote
  2. Mixed media Warriors #37 - All You Need is Love

Always In My Heart - Explosion Box | Romantic | Garden

Hello everyone
I am sharing a romantic Explosion Box with you all. This one is made for a client who is celebrating her first Valentine's Day with her Husband. I made this box to give an idea of " A Romantic Date in a Garden" and this is also inspired by the garden in my campus.......with green grass, flowers and butterflies...atleast it looks like that in summer.
My box is 6" by 6" by 6" and has 3 layers which in all hold 24 mats. So you can add 24 to 48 pictures.....but I would prefer you to add 24 pics and journal on the back of the mats. Apart from the picture mats, I also have tiny tags included in the box..they are so cute. I have used beautiful papers from Eno Greetings called as Blue Florals..these are really adorable and the quality is also very nice.

I decorated the entire project with handmade mulberry flowers from ItsyBitsy and other local craft stores in India. I also used gold foil cardstock to add soem shine to my project without making it very blingy. I have also added gold foil leaves....these bring so much extra to this project.

 The focal sentiment " Always in My Heart" is also from ItsyBitsy which I have gold heat embossed. Love the way it sits on the entwined wooden hearts.....

The decorative element int he center is my fav.....I adore those cutesy butterflies. They are to die for... The bench I have used is from Mudra Crafts and the lamp post is from ItsyBitsy. I really love the way it all brings the entire garden theme together....
I have tried to create a small garden on every flap of every layer...filled with flowers and grass and art pebbles. I made sure to add browns to complete the look of a true garden.....Here are a few more pics of the flaps.

I hope you all like it as much as I do. Here is a small video of my fun box....I hope you all will watch it.
I am entering this project at the following challenges:
  1. Unstampabelles Challenge #86 - Simply Bright and Cheerful - Twist Arty Creations Appreciated - For me, Nature is the biggest artist because the hues that it has on its brush...I only wish I could have. My project is inspired by my garden and I have built the entire box to mimic it.

The Green Grass - My First Mixed Media Art Journal Page

Hey guys
I am super super excited to show you all my very FIRST ART JOURNAL PAGE. I have never made 1 before and it was in my bucket list and I finally thought its time to give this art form a try. I have to say...its really stress busting....I had such an amazing time playing with my mediums and colors....everyone should make an art journal.

  I am putting this up at the following Challenges -
  1. Lindy's Stamp Gang - January 2019 challenge 
  2. More Than Words - January 2019 Challenge - Goals and Journaling
  3. Art and Soul studios - January 2019 Challenge - I have used products available in your store - Lindys, Little Birdie and Prima Marketing.

So this year, I have decided to make atleast 1 art journal page every month with some positive quote and the GOAL is to have a dozen by the end of the year....fingers crossed. I tend to get busy with my work and forget a lot of things....and so I have a post it on my wall....which I call my Goal List with a few things I have to do this year.
Over a period of time...since I have been crafting....I have gone through lot of emotions...some good and some not so good. There have been times when I have been content with my projects...felt proud and happy....but there have also been times when I have thought to my self If I am noticed by anyone? ...or Am I not deserving enough? ...... or Is someone else better than me?......these feeling are not the best and really bring you down.....So I want to remind myself WHY I STARTED CRAFTING? Its because it was fun and made me happy...relaxed me and helped me forget all the other not so good things happening around....So I have made this journal page to remind me to APPRECIATE MYSELF.... LOVE MYSELF....STOP COMPARING WITH OTHERS & KEEP CRAFTING LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING YOU....

Enough with the heavy...I have a small clip so you can see this page upclose and I hope you all will like it....

    Say Yes to New Adventure - Mixed media Tag

    ello guys
    I am so excited to show off my first mixed media project for 2019. It definitely took me a while to get into the groove after all the parties and vacation.
    I have a mixed media tag to share with you all today which was so fun to make. I have used embellishments from Finnabair ,magical shakers from Lindy's Gang and mixed media mediums from Itsy Bitsy (Little Birdie Crafts).

    All the flowers I have used are handmade by me.....I made a bunch of these a while back and finally used a few today. The pretty feathers tucked in on the left are also handmade by using feather stencil and sparkle paste on clear acetate (ItsyBisty) and fussy cut.

    I am putting my tag up at the following challenges -
    1. More Mixed Media Challenge - January 2019 - Anything Goes optional Blue
    2. Mixed Media & Art - January 2019 Challenge - Coolness

    This year I am trying to improve my product photography skills so that is a little adventure I am taking....finding new software and improving my skill set.
