Today i would like to show you a mixed media canvas i prepared with magical mica and few Papericious chipboard, TCW and Memory box stencils.

I started with a canvas board; i placed the heart stencil and used art basics’ texture paste over it using a palette knife.

Allowed it to dry and then i used distress inks and water brush to spread the happy colours.

Once the colours dried i again placed the stencil over it and daubed versamark watermark ink over the  stencil.

Later i removed the stencil and i used my brush to apply the magical mica powder (crimson red, mystical gold and blue gold).

The best part is that the magical mica powder will stick only to the stencilled area where versamark ink is there. I daubed random areas and you can see the magic how shiny the hearts are. Totally loved the effect.
I left the canvas to dry and i took an embossing folder and applied versamark ink on one side of the folder and placed my black cardstock and passed it through my die cutting machine.
Once embossed i applied mystical gold mica powder over it and the embossed areas were left black and rest were covered with mica powder giving an antique effect.

I rolled the black cardstock to make a tube and also cut a half circle and folded it to form a cone which i layered on top of tube.

I used the left over wires from my mulberry flowers and twisted two wires till i got the desired length and then i covered it with green floral tape to secure it tight. 

I cut a circular black cardstock equivalent to the size of the tube inserted the wire and twisted it from inside to hold it tight and assembled the cone, tube and wired circular cardstock to form a water gun.

I took papericious sigma cardstock and used flower die to get the die cuts to form a flower.
I used zig clear brush colours to form flowers of various shades.

I layered up the layers from big to small and added a contrasting bead in the centre.

I used spellbinder foliage die for the leaves and also spellbinder holiday die for the vines.

I used Twinklets diamond dust and glossy accent to cover the tips of the leaves.

I took papericious chipboard cut it to my requirement, daubed it with versamark and used blue gold and pearl white mica powder for the shinny effect.

Once i was ready with my flowers, water gun chipboards, i started layering them on my canvas.
I started by placing the water gun on one end and placed the flowers in a curve in a way they are coming out from the gun.
I used my silhouette cameo to cut my quote “you colour me happy” and coloured it using zig clear brush colours.

For the quote also i used a script stamp i had and used versamark ink for stamping and used mystical gold to sprinkle over it.

Here is the final canvas i ended up with

Few close ups

I sprinkled papericious sequiens at the end and two butterflies.
Hope you all will like it and friends do experiment with mica powder its wonderful.

This month our sponsor is

 You can visit their shop Here.

For this month i have selected the enchanting pretty pea image.

Here is my take on this month challenge.

I created the journal cover. I stamped the peacock feather stamp from mudra stamp to create background and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I used joy craft feather die for the die cut and spellbinder holiday die for the flower and some punch flowers.

Used a blue lace for the left border.
Before attaching the lace i distressed the background with some bright colours to bring life to the cover.

I coloured the pretty pea image using zig clear brush pens and fussy cut it. Used foam tape to create dimension.

Stamped fly and spread your wings from technique Tuesday stamps.

Hope you all will like it.

Mixed media door hanger

Hello crafty people out there.
Vrajangna here to share with you a mixed mediadoor hanger i made recently.

I have a small tutorial, hope it will be useful.
I got a door hanger shaped mdf cutout from a local vendor.

I painted it in baby pink Asian paint colour.
I left it to dry overnight.
Next day once it was dry i used artbasics modelling paste and memory box stencil to get the texture.

Allowed it to dry.
Coloured the rim in dark metallic pink.
I took papericious sigma cardstock and my recently bought flower die from Nakshathra designs.

I didn't have permanent inks except versamark so i used them to colour the Flowers.

Used tonic studio embossing tools and silicone glue from itsybitsy to make the flowers.

Once my flowers were ready i used glossy accent over the tips of flower petals and sprinkled rock candy clear glitter.

I coloured the primadoll using zigclear brush colour pens, fussy cut it and used two way foam tape to attach to the mdf hanger.
I have used artificial velvet leaves for the flowers.
In the centre of one the flowers i applied silicone glue and sprinkled micro beads.

Tadaa my hanger is ready.

Few close ups

Hope you all liked it and enjoyed it

Card in a box

Hello folks,

Well the day i saw the digi stamp i got from Ericraft stamp as design team member, i had this card in mind.
I created a card in a box by upcycling a brochure.

 I have collected number of brochures as we are in search of new home. I kept them safely as they are really study enough to work on.
Moving ahead with the card
I cut a rectangle measuring 13 inches by 7 inches.

Scored the longer side at 3", 6", 9" and 12".
Now rotate the paper and score at 4" on 7" side.
Now cut on the score lines 3, 6, 9 and 12 inch till u reach 4 inch scoreline.
You will get like this

I used party themed pattern paper and butterfly designed foil paper to cover up the brochure.
I joined the extra 1 inch (12"-13" ) left on one side to stick to the opposite end and create a box. Folded the three flaps on outside n leaving one straight as it is.

I stamped flowers from botonical bloom stamp set from mudra stamps and fussy cut it.
I used jef heart die 2 different sizes and embossed the smaller die cut and used twoway tape to create a depth.
I arranged the flowers to create a garden scene and stuck them using strips of acrylic sheet so they wont be visible and will even move with wind.
I colored the stamp"flowers for you" using zig clear brush markers and arranged it on to of heart.
I die cut the die "you" i bought from DCAM stamped Love and fussy cut it.

For the first time i tried selective embossing.
It was fun and brought life to the project.

Hope you all enjoyed it.
