Diwali diyas- 2

Hey everyone
Diyas are getting painted and decorated at a very rapid pace....which is very unusual for me...as I am a very competant person and dunt like anything to be messed up. Everything has to be perfect mostly beacause these diyas are made specially for family and friends to be gifted for Diwali. These are the second set of the diyas and more are yet to come....

 Yet again, I bought these diyas from a local potter and then painted them using pearl acrylic colors and decorated with some rhinestones. Don't they look pretty and cute.....I have made around 100-150 of these and I am putting pictures of them. They are just repeated patterns and so I am putting up one from each type I made.



I hope you all like it. thank you for reading my post and have a great day ahead.

Mister and Missis - Mini album and a Box featuring Papericious Flora season pattern paper.

Hello everyone
It certainly has been a busy month for me with work and festivals.....I try very hard to blog about the products I make but sometimes...few of them get missed. I am particularly very fond of this one and I made sure I write a post about this one....Presenting a new mini album featuring The flora season pattern paper from Papericious....isn't it gorgeous. This album is wedding gift but I didnt want it to be restricted to only wedding photos and so I added the Label Mister and Missis...so its perfect for any photo as a couple.
I do not have much time to write a tutorial for this mini-albums but I will certainly add pictures and list of supplies used. I have followed the page layout by Ginger Ropp from My sister scrappers. I love the way this album turned out and I hope my client is happy with it. This is the second album I have made using The flora season- pattern paper and I just love this paper pack....beautiful pastel shades and very pretty.
This album and the box was a custom designed for a wedding and was a rush order.....but I have tried my best to capture few pics before it left my door.  This album is decorated using resin frames, Mdf embellishments, mulberry flowers, rhinestones, laces, pearls, metal chrarms and other little things which add little details tot his projects. I have used doilies in this project which I think looks perfect as a picture mat and peeks from behind the photos.....super cute.

Peacock diyas

Hey everyone
Its all festivals in India....and i am gearing up for diwali. Diwali or Deepavali is the festival of lights and its not complete without lighting up oil diyas or lamps or panti. Every year I paint and decorate 100 or more for frenz and family as a Diwali favor with sweets and other gifts.
so, painting diyas on my end is going on in full force at my home and I thought to share a few pictures of one particular diya I have painted.
This is a Peacock diya and I have painted it with pearl acrylic colors and added some shimmer for the pretty shine. I added a few rhinestones to them to make them look a little blingy. Took me around 1 hours to paint 2 diyas and decorate them.
I hope you all like it. Thank you for reading my post.

Happy 1st birthday

Hello all
Its been long since i have blogged about something. Though I have been adding pics and products on facebook....I haven't really posted anything here. Its new month and new challenges are announced and it makes me all excited to make something new...its fun to work within the given guidelines...kinda tests my limits and makes me think a little different.
So here is a new card which I have made to participate at the monthly challenge at Peek-a-boo designs. They have completed one year and the challenge is to make a card using red, gold and number 1 with a additional twist using stenciling or 3d Layered projects or dash of glitter or your own stamped background.
My take on this Recepie challenge is the above card. I have incorporated glitter in the form of glitter pens and chunky glittered number, gold sequins and gold microbeads, red stenciling and red cardstock and I have made my own background on the shaker window using hearts from peek-a-boo stamp set.
I am also linking this card to Paruscardmakingchallenges for this month which says a hint of gold, creative with stamps Sentiment challenge for october and A blog named hero october challege - Geometric.

Also, I am putting my card up at Lulupu october challenge - bling a ding with a stamping twist. which says we need to more than a sentiment and since i have stamped some hearts on the card....I thought to put it up for this challenge.

I started with stenciling using Itsybitsy stencil and Memento Lady bug dye ink. Then I made a shaker window using some acetate sheet and a cardstock frame. I made my own background on the frame using heart stamp from Peek a boo Place Photo stamp. I used the little heart from this stamp set as I wanted to add hearts and I thought to use this stamp set and put it to a different use than what we usually use it for.
I scribbled inside these hearts using gold pen and then added Itsybitsy gold sequins and Itsybitsy microbeads inside the shaker window. For the sentiment on the card, I tore some vellum and then stamped the sentiment using Black Archival ink pad. The sentiment set is from JustRite Grand handwritten sentiments, The number one is made using Black chipboard which I cut and added some chunky glitter again from Itsybitsy. I finished the card front using some gold and black sequins
For the inside, I didnt do much except stamp the sentiment on white cardstock using Itsybitsy Black Pigment ink pad.the sentiment is from Peek a boo Happy birthday to you stamp set. It got a bit smudged and I had to go over it with a microtip black pen.
Well that's my card. I hope you all like it. Thank you for reading my post.
