Mixed Media Tags

Hello Peeps,

Super excited to be sharing my trials on Mixed Media. I have always been fascinated by the amazing end products of  mixing and layering various art mediums and ingredients. Finally gave a try and just loved the process of doing it..

The backgrounds are made using Kaisercraft Mists and texture stamps. Did a bit of embossing using texture pastes and added my favorite embellishments - flowers and butterfly and some Prima leaves.. Splattered some white paint and added titles to finish off.

Some more close ups :

I hope you liked these. Do let me know your thoughts.
Thank you for stopping by.

Fun With Inks - Creating Backgrounds


Blogging after quite a long time to share these cards.

I have created three backgrounds using three different techniques. The cards are versatile and can be used for any occasion.

I have used the Ink smooching technique to add distress ink to my background.  I used 6 shades of distress inks - Wilted Violet, Broken China, Peeled Paint,Wild Honey, Barn Door and Pickled Rasberry.

To heat emboss the flowers and leaves, I ave used the Beautiful Day stamp from Altenew.  This is one of my favorite set from Altenew.

To do the sentiment, I used the HELLO chipboard, and added UTEE Black. Aside from word dies, I have stamped the sentiment from the same set and foam mounted the longer strip and adhered the shorter one directly onto the background.

Added a few sequins to complete the card.

To create this card, I used the Floral Flourishes stamp from Justrite. Firstly, I have stamped using versamark and embossed using White embossing powder. I have then inked using using various shades of Green - Shabby Shutters, Peeled Painted, Crushed Olive. 

To do the sentiment , I have Die cut the Thanks in black and silver glitter and adhered the silver glitter offsetting the black. Finally, added blings to finish the card.

I used to think that ink blended galaxy backgrounds are so hard to make but I'm glad I gave it a try  - and I'm loving the result and the process. 

I have distressed using Broken china, Shabby Shutters, Wild honey, Wilted Violet, Pickled Rasberry , Brushed Coudroy and Black soot until I got the effect I was looking for, Then, splatter water and dab it off with a paper towel . Also splatter white acrylic finish off.

Hope you liked the cards.
Thank you for stopping by!

Stacked Book of Drawers

Hello Peeps,

Today, I am sharing yet another version of the stacked book of drawers. This one is more detailed and lot more sturdier .. Just loved putting together this project and hope you will like it too            :)

Here we go with the pics :

The drawers are constructed from scratch using chipboard/boxboard. For this one, I have used the Kaisercraft - Always & Forever Paper collection .The collection is so versatile and can be used in any theme.

The embellishing is my most favorite part and love playing with the flowers and its arrangements. The flowers are from Wild orchid crafts. I have also added a few charms for additional interest.

These can be used tiny lil memoirs or any of your crafty treasures.

Thank you for stopping by.
