  •  I took empty deodorant bottle, glued bottle cap so that it won’t get opened and applied “Greasy Charcoal” chalk paint using palette knife.
    (Using palette knife to apply paint is one of my favorite way to create texture).
  • I wrapped stencil called “Geometrical patterns” around the bottle and secure the stencil edges using masking tape.
  • I used Craftyscrappers shimmer paste “Jet” to create texture through stencil and also applied this paste on empty spaces of bottle just to put everything together.
  • Glued down metal leaves and wrapped thread around the bottle cap & also added metal handle.
  • Covered these added embellishment using “Greasy charcoal” chalk paint and added Jet shimmer paste.
  • After it dries I highlighted this bottle using Gesso,
    (Best way to pop out the elements which  added in project).
  • Finally seal this bottle using Fixative spray.

 

 

And Taaaa-Daaaaaaa!!! There you go, we finished this beautiful piece… Give it a try, and if tried don’t forget to tag us in your projects using #Inspired By Craftyscrappers.

MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD & TAG
By DT Member

blog ender.png

 Today I have a MIXED MEDIA page art journal spread and a tag to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

 

(MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD)

ed1.jpg

ed2.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(
MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD)

 

  • I took 4 card-stock from Craftyscrappers and tear it from middle just to make hole of different sizes, as you can see in image.
  • I started coloring from bottom page using Craftyscrappers shimmer sprays, for 1st layer I used “Rusty Denim” , For 2nd layer used “Sweet Sunshine”, for 3rd layer I used “Dancing Peacock
  • and for 4th layer I used texture paste and created texture using stencil called “Geometrical patterns” and after it dries completely I colored the page using “Juicy Watermelon“, “Sweet Sunshine”, and “Rusty Denim” from darker shade to lighter shade.
  • In this step I distressed the torn parts using “Greasy Charcoal” chalk paint, this way pages will have depth and I also stamped dotted pattern stamp around the torn area, for this I used “INSPIRE” stamp set, I follow this stamping process for all the 4 pages. (for reference have a look on final page)
  • Distress all the 4 pages using black ink and glue them together but instead of using foam tape, I used chipboard so that it will have dimensional look.
  • I stamped girl image from “Happy HOLI” Stamp set, Colored it using watercolor and fussy cut the image & place it on the page as if that girl is coming from colored layers (That’s what my concept was) To lift up the girl image I used 2 to 3 layers of chipboard behind it.
  • I also spread silver glitter behind the girl image and to the front page I spread just a little amount of “Tinted Gold” shimmer paste using palette knife to add shine and sparkly look,
  • After this I stamped the quote (saying) stamp image from “HOLI” Stamp set, Fussy cut that image and adhere on the page using double sided foam tape.
  • Later on this page added flat back gems randomly to have a elegant look, And Voila!!! our multi-page Art journal spread is complete.

 

 

(MIXED MEDIA TAG)

ed3.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(MIXED MEDIA TAG)

  • I took Packaging cardboard and made cut-out of tag of 5 inches by 3 inches and glue down broken brush head on it.
  • Then I paste metal butterfly just to hide broken part of brush and also added sea-shells, art stones and micro beads. (Seed beads, micro beads, art stone works as a filler and also
  • In this step I covered entire tag with gesso and after gesso dries completely.
  • I colored the tag using “Tasty Tortilla” and “Muddy Pool” shimmer sprays.
  • I used gesso again just to add highlight little bit, in this step I took very little amount of gesso on dry brush and apply so that dimensional elements get highlighted.
  • Distress the edges and then added Shimmer paste using pallet knife.
  • Stamped sayings from “INSPIRE” stamp set and finished this tag.

  • Colored these images using different Shimmer Sprays Sour eggplant, Ocean waves, Bitter lemon, Sweet pumpkin and one DI- candied apple and one Memento dye ink- Dandelion using water. Fussy cut them.
  • On a stitched textured white CS, at the top I carefully stamped the Splash image three times overlapping them from the Celebration Holi stamp set using Different DI and slightly spritzed it with water bottle. Love the faded dripping colorful result. Then once again I stamped those splashes using same DI for the good impact result.
  • Die cut a scalloped circle out of black CS and black foam sheet. 
  • In the center I created my own sentiment using same stamp set again, this stamp set included so many cute text sentiments!

By DT Member
blog ender.png

 

 Today I have a fun and colorful project to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

I have tried stretching my stamps in a very extraordinary way.The stamp set was designed for Holi festival but now as the festival is over I was confused how to make something out of it and that’s where this technique of stretching the stamps clicked to me.

 

STRETCHING THE STAMPS IN A CREATIVE WAY : A CARD

ed1.jpg

ed2.jpg

ed3.jpg

 

 

A Brief tutorial

 

  • I have used the triangle geometric shape in the stamp set,”Celebrate Holi”  which was actually representing gulal(Holi Powdered color) on the stamp set to create my background first with Distress oxide inks in various colors.
  • After that I have used You die and made a diecut on the finished background.
  • Took that diecut out and replaced it with same white cardstock diecuts thrice,
  • lastly topped the original distress oxide inked  diecut.
  • The sentiment is from same stamp set, “Celebrate Holi“.
  • stamped with Black Archival ink.
  • Lastly attached Cup sequins to adorn the card.

Okay so moving on to my tutorial now…

MARCH BLOG FEATURED.jpg

as accordance with the festival of colors-Holi.
And i will be demonstrating you, how i have created this vibrant looking altered mixed media shadow box, from start to finish.

 

Possible image 1

 

Here is the final shot of the project which we are going to create today:

2.jpg

 

Untitled-1.png

 

step1.png

First i took chocolate box dividers and glued it on thick cardboard and also glue down at cross junction in between to have more strength, as you can see here in picture below, (Here you can create this type of layout using thick cardboard as well)

 

 

step2.png

Next I took 8 bottle caps and place them into the slots and fixed with the help of glue gun as shown in picture, but here its all up to you to select the slots as needed and also add few more caps if you want.

step2.jpg

 

 

step3.png

I added melted glue in manner as if its flowing out or dripping out from caps, that’s what my whole concept was, i use hot glue gun to get that effect here, all you have to do is just tilt the project and start adding glue and it will flow down easily….

step3.jpg

 

 

step4.png

If you are new to mixed media then gesso is first thing you should have in your supplies list because its a primer, and in mixed media when we add different elements we need to prime those for the next step that is coloring so that those elements won’t absorbs colors, okay so moving ahead, after glue dries completely, I cover entire project using gesso and also added art stones..

step4.jpg

 

step5

I colored entire project using different shades of newly launched Shimmer sprays from Craftyscrappers, I used “Grape Juice“, “Rusty Denim“, “Sweet Sunshine“, “Dancing Peacock“, “Juicy Watermelon“, “Tasty Tortilla“, “Muddy Pool
(Color order is from Left to right), you can do coloring as you like at different slots with wide range of shimmer sprays available in Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays list of items.

step5.jpg

 

 

step6

I used gesso again just to add highlight little bit, in this step I took very little amount of gesso on dry brush and apply here and there as you can see in below snapshot…

step7.jpg

 

 

step7

Added black color shading around the dimensional color flow & also to the outside of art stones, and then added Shimmer paste using pallet knife just to add more shine, sparkle to the project, this step will bind the project together.

step9.jpg

 

 

step8

I took heart shape and spread Craftyscappers shimmer paste “Tinted Gold” all over it, Hold for a moment and just look at this beautiful shine and sparkle, Shimmer paste is must have product if you are glitter and sparkle freak like me 😉

step11.jpg

 

 

step9

In this step I distress the edges of heart shaped and wrapped white thread around it randomly & finish this project by adding sentiment from Craftyscrappers stamp set “Holi Sentiments” and also coated corners of bottle caps with black shade just to add extra depth for dripping color shades…. and boom!! your project is ready.
