Mixed media layout- inspiration.

Hello everyone
I am back with a new project today and it is a mixed media layout....this one is made to celebrate friendship and I really hope it reflects that...... I have a lot of pictures taken and I hope you guys enjoy it. I am also writing down the procedure and supplies used to make this project. I am entering this project at monthly challenge at Papericious blog- Make it 3D, Itsybitsy challenge, Scrapping4fun challenge #83 and Addicted to stamps.
I started with pattern paper from Papericious Wedding paper pack. I distressed it on the edges using a Tim Holtz distressing tool. Brushed the paper with a coat of white gesso. Allowed it to dry completely and then I did some stenciling on the paper using a feather stencil and a script stencil both from Itsybitsy and some texture paste (Home made by me).
Further to add texture I did some heat embossing using Prima Marketting stamps and Gold Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger. I also stamped at a few places with scallop circle stamp using Black archival ink. Used a little micro beads to add some water dripping effects and a little sand grains like texture at a few places.
Once everything was thoroughly dried, I added Color Splash colors from Itsybitsy....I just used Tangerine and Ocean Mist.

I made my own pattern papers for matting the photo....I have used distress inks and few different stamps to make my own papers. I have distressed the edges of all the pieces to give them more dimension.
The bottom most paper is made by stamping script stamp from Prima Marketing on white Iris cardstock using Rich Cocoa Momento dye ink.
The rainbow effect is obtained by ink blending Squeezed lemonade, mermaid lagoon and Spun sugar on white Iris cardstock. I then heat embossing Kaisercraft stamp Botanical using white embossing power from Ranger.
The butterfly stamp from Kaisercraft is stamped on white iris cardstock using Pink Gumball dye ink from Ranger to get the pink butterfly paper.
The uppermost piece of paper is made by stenciling versamark on white iris cardstock and heat embossing with clear embossing powder from Wow. I then ink blended Mermaid lagoon distress ink on the paper.
I arranged all the pieces of paper on top of each other. I added chipboard pieces in between layers to add dimension.
Then comes the fun part.....embellishments and flowers... i have used doilies, mulberry flowers, Mft flourish diecuts, resin frames and flowers, pearls, mdf butterfly diecut, butterflies and much more.....loved this bit and I throughly enjoyed myself.

Happy button is from Papericious, the little metal embellishment is from Eno greetings, laces and trims are from Itsybitsy and so are many little embellishments used.
The four words are hand written on white iris paper and then distressed on the edges with antique linen distress ink. The words are written with waterproof permanent black pen and then given a edge with gold pen. The words are matted on black chipboard pieces and then coated with glossy accents.
To add the final touches, I have used clear Wink of Stella at a few places as well as some some Twinklets Diamond dust
I am adding a little video of the project where you will be able to see it a littermore closely. However due to bad cold and cough, I do not have an audio walkthrough....I hope you all like this and thank you for visiting me. Have a good week ahead....

Baby Girl Mini Album and Tag Box.

Hello everyone.
Firstly I would want to wish all of you a very happy new year and I hope you guys find love happiness and peace this year. It has been a while for me since I have done a blog post as there was a lot happening on my personal front. I had been doing projects...just didn't find time to write a post and share them with you all.

So lets begin the new year with a beautiful  project for a heaven sent bundle of joy....I have made a mini album for a baby girl....its my first and I am really excited to share with you. Now this one is a big album with 8" by 8" as covers and the spine is 4 3/4" its a big one for sure.
This album has a fair few tags and lots of journalling spots and can hold over 100 pictures on the mats and you can still tuck a few more in the nooks and crannies of this album. This album is divided into 12 sections and I have made specific monthly tags to fit those 12 special months of a baby's first year. You can also use these tags as baby onesie tags as once done you can continue to treat them as regular jounalling tags. I have added a little space on the back of these tags to write about baby;'s monthly routines.
I have used suppies from Itsybitsy, Papericious, Kaisercraft and the mdf diecuts are from Jasmine Siddhiqui from Kraftily konnect. The collection of ribbons and embellishments at Itsybitsy is just outstanding and I really like working with them. The paper pack used is called Its a Girl which is from Papericious and I must say that the collection is really perfect for making such albums.
All in all...I have loads of pictures I want to share with you sit back and enjoy this interactive mini album.
I am putting this album up at Papericious monthly challenge for December.
This moodboard really inspired me to make a Baby Girl album with loads os shades of pinks and purples with hints of greys and white. I have incorporated roses as well as sequins in my project.

For a more detailed walk through of this album, you can visit my youtube channel to see the video. I am putting the link for the same below.

I hope you liked my project and if you do...please leave me some love. Thank you guys and have a nice day.
