Your Wings Already Exists......- Mixed Media Layout Tutorial | DT Post for ItsyBitsy

Hello guys
I am here to share with you all a mixed media layout. This year I have been doing a lot of positive affirmations.....on my journal spreads, canvas and layouts. I feel we can achieve anything if we just stay focused and be aware of our abilities. Here is a layout which is so full of motivation and positivity and it says "Your Wings Already Exists...All You Have to Do is Fly. This is my DT inspiration for ITSYBITSY and to read a full tutorial please click HERE.

I have challenged myself this time to limit the no of colors used on this layout and rather decided to use tones of the same color.....I have grey and blue as primary colors and everything around is in tones on blues and grey with neutral shades like white, black and kraft. I wanted to add this softness to my layout and so have incorporated cheesecloth and cotton threads in few places....for me it represents cloud and mist.

I love playing with flowers and glitter and I had such a fun time playing with it....sparkly and shiny but yet muted....Happy with the way it turned out this time..I hope you all like it too. Here are a few more closeups....

I am putting this up at the following challenges:-

  1. Love to Create Mixed Media challenge #2 - Anything Goes
  2. Creative Artiste mixed Media Challenge #46 - Anything Goes
  3. Rhedd's Creative Spirit feb Challenge - anything Goes
  4. Nomadicsouldiaries on Instagram.

" 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

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.
