Redesign Nameplate


Hello guys
Today I have a nameplate to share with you all. I made this for my sister's new house and we has VastuPooja yest. I made it to match the decor in her house and I am glad she liked it.
I made this from scratch and the base is a combination of chipboard and sunboard. To add a little texture, stencils and clay pieces were used. I gave it a more stone carved look by using black and white gesso, Impasto paints and gold acrylic paint. To give it a little depth, I have also used the Vintage Gold wax in a few places. The products used are from Finnabair and ItsyBitsy.


I am putting this up at the following blog challenges:
  1. More mixed Media Challenge - Anything Goes Black
  2. Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #55 - Anything Goes

How to make Handmade Christmas Cards - Tutorial | DIY

Hey guys
Today I have a tutorial to make Christmas cards.....which are in non traditional colors. I wanted to give this feel of snow and so I have used really pastel shades of Blue, lilac and grey but I gave into the feel of Christmas and used Gold, green and little silver sparke on my snowflake.
 These are standard A7 cards and I have used stamps from Mudra craft for this project. I started with watercolor panels and clear heat embossed snowflakes in 3 sizes. Then, I ink blended using Distress inks to get this soft snow look...I didnt want to use traditional Christmas colors but yet I used green for the last card.
 Once I was happy with my panels, I assembeled it on my card base along with some gold glitter paper to give it a touch of whimsy. The sentiment used is also from Mudra craft which I gold heat embossed on vellum.....this allows me to see the background through it ....those snowflakes look so fun through he vellum. I also added a white wax cord in the front with a small bow to add a little extra to the front.
 Once, my card front was ready, I dressed the inside as well with a similar panel design and stamped the back of the card with a sentiment that says "Handmade just for you"....
 I made my own grey envelops and dressed them up as well using the scrap strips and white heat embossing snowflakes....make it look so special. I never forget to dress my envelopes up whenever I make cards. I finished it all with some silver sequins in the center of snowflakes.
I have a full tutorial and I encourage you to watch this if you want to know how I made these cards.

Choose To Shine - Round Mixed Media Canvas

Hello everyone
I am here to share my new mixed media canvas with you all. I made this canvas taking inspiration from the September Art Recipe Moodboard on the Finnabair blog. I was really excited to work with the given moodboard and make something on a round canvas. So here is what I made....

So, the challenge consists of colour palette and products and I had to use any 2 of the products from the list they gave....so here are the options for colors and products

Colours of September Art Recipe:
carmine red, brown, golden

Products:
Art Alchemy: Liquid Acrylics
Art Extravagance: Fantasy Texture Paste
Art Ingredients: Glass Glitter
Finnabair Stencils

I decided to use the new Finnabair stencil, Vintage Gold Icing Paste and Sterling Glass Glitter. I have still not able to get Liquid Acrylics here so I decided to use New Lindy's Squirts to add color to my canvas. I used Hockey Puck Black, Maple Syrup Bronze, Beaver Tail Brown, Oh Canada Crimson and Canadian Bacon Blush.

I used an old clock as the base for my project.....added gesso, texture paste and some art stones to build my background. Once everything was dry, I added colors to it...so it was easy to build over it. Then, I came back with clay pieces, metal embellishments and  chipboard embellishments to add layers and dimensions to my canvas. Before adhering it all, I stencilled my icing paste in some random areas......its was important to do it now as later I wouldnt be able to do it comfortably. here is a closeup of the focal image.

I then colored all the embellishments on the canvas and added the focal picture. To add highlights, IO have used 3 art alchemy waxes - Vintage Gold, Whilte Gold and Fire Ruby. These waxes give such an amazing finish to my canvas....it all came together after this. To add more interest I added dyed cheesecloth in few places to give a feel of veil. To finish it all, I added glass glitter and some fine glitter. Here are some more closeups





I hope you all liked my project. I am linking it to the following blog challenges:

  1. Finnabair Art Recipe - September 2019 Moodboard
  2. More Than Words - October Moodboard Challenge - Costume and Black Background - I have added a small mask to the image giving it a feel of costume. I was going for the look of a seer without giving it an entire costume.
  3. More Mixed Media Challenge - Anything Goes optional orange

I have used House of Roses extra paper collection from Lemoncraft. The butterflies and all the floral elements as well as other paper layers and embellishments are from the collection. To add more interest, I have used clay pieces which is made using the IOD mould Keyholes.

A lot of texture is added using stencil and modelling paste, crackle paste ad mini art stones....all of which are from Finnabair. I used mulberry flowers and handmade flowers to dress my canvas...the big pink one is made by me....so pretty right!

I have also used frames and sentiment from Dusty Attic. I also randomly stamped in a few places and added some platters. The finishing touches came from art stones, rainbow glitter, and blings in a few places .I hope you all like this canvas.Thank you so much for stopping by.
