Okay so Here are the projects which we are going to create Today:

 

feb.jpg

 

PROJECT#1: Mixed Media altered MDF board

 

ins.jpg

Untitled-1.png

step1.png

I took 10 inch circle shaped MDF board, and prime it using gesso, but instead of using brush, i used palate knife to apply gesso, this way i have texture on the surface, it is the best way to create texture on any surface easily, this is how it looks :

1.jpg

step2.png

I used MDF photo frame with word LOVE and steampunk gears of different shapes & sizes, which are easily available online or any local craft store, and then glue them to form a random composition.

2.jpg

step3.png

After everything dries completely, i added resin Victorian frame and cute little angel cupid, i also added paper flowers, (don’t worry about the embellishment colors), at the end we are going to cover everything with gesso.. and as i always says use whatever you have in your stash, okay so moving on to rest tutorial.. 🙂

3.jpg

step4.png

Added micro beads, this is one of my favorite thing to add to any mixed media project, and later cover entire project with gesso.

4.jpg

This seems all confusing and hard but trust me guys once you start building layers and embellishment you will find it easier than ever.

step5

I started coloring using Craftyscrappers “Shimmer sprays” named Juicy watermelon and Sweet sunshine, after you finish the spraying before it gets dried just tilt the project little bit so this way both the color will flow & blend together..
these sprays are so amazing that it goes on any surface as you can see here,
Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays are available in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from.

5.jpg
after it dried completely i used “fixative spray” to seal that shine n color,
as these shimmer sprays are water based.

step6

Next I used gesso to highlight the texture and elements using dry brush technique,
here the base coat colors does not scattered because i have sealed the colors using fixative, as you can see here, how beautiful finish i got in this project…

7.jpg

step7

I painted the letter LOVE and cupid using Craftyscrappers (pearl finish) SHIMMER PAINTSDreamy Daffodils and (gold touch)SHIMMER PAINTS- Tasty Cranberries  and used black paint to give depth to the project.

6.jpg

HERE’S A CLOSER LOOK AT THE SHIMMER PAINTS AND THEIR EFFECT:

8.jpg

step8

Added pearls and painted them using Craftyscrappers (gold touch) shimmer paint-
Tasty cranberries” , also splattered this color a bit, and voila!!
this is final & glorious look of the finished Project.

PROJECT#2: Mixed Media TAGS

 

p1.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL

  • I took two white cardstock tags 6 inches x 3 inches and using Craftyscrappers Damask stencil & texture paste created texture on both the tags..
    This way i made background on both the tags.
  • Colored 1st tag using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays- juicy watermelon and lushy orchid and 2nd tag using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays- sweet sunshine and lushy orchid, while color is wet tilt both the tag little bit to run the color from texture I created earlier.

 

TAG#1

t1.jpg

  • Moving to 1st tag, i Stamped the image and sentiments from Craftyscrappers Everything magical stamp set and colored them
  • I took 2 smaller tags around 2.5 inches x 1 inch and place them randomly.
  • I also took corrugated cardboard to adhere behind stamped image,
    (you can clearly see this step in the finished tag.)
  • After fuzzy cutting the image I adhere image on corrugated cardboard using double sided foam tape, and place different size n color paper flowers.
  • Once everything dries completely, used black watercolor to gave depth & after placing the sentiment I added maroon micro beads around the flower and distress the edges of tag using black ink pad… here we finished our first tag.

 

TAG#2

t2.jpg

 

  • For 2nd tag I used image from the Everything magical and sentiment from Adventure Awaits stamp set.
  • Took gears and colored them using turquoise blue acrylic paint and after it dries highlight them using craftyscrappers chalk paint “Zesty lilac”.
  • Placed them randomly to form a composition leaving one side of tag empty for corrugated cardboard.
  • I colored the stamped image and distress the edges of corrugated cardboard.
  • Place stamped image on corrugated cardboard using double side foam tape.
  • Added sentiment and silver micro beads in empty spaces.
  • I also distress the edges of tag little bit using black watercolor and this is how I finish 2nd tag as well.

Let me share now the procedure, how to make one easily…
but before that, let me share the products used.

tut2.jpg

 

 

 

Here’s the completed THEMED CANDLES:

 

f1.jpg

f2.jpg

f3.jpg

 

Possible image 1

 

step1

 

f4.jpg

Cut the tissue paper approximately to fit the size of the candle. The tissue should cover the candle only once and should not be overlapped at the ends. 

 

f5.jpg

 

step2

 

 Stamp all the images using the ink and the acrylic blocks randomly so as to cover the entire tissue. Make sure to leave little margins at the ends. This avoids crowing of images when the two end sides meet.  

 

f6.jpg
step3
 

 Cover the tissue completely with the images. Once all the images are stamped, separate the layers of tissue and use only the topmost ply of it. 

 

f7.jpg

 

step4

Next, we have to put the tissue on the candle and heat set it. 

 

f8.jpg

 

step5

 
 Heat the candle so that the tissue sticks to it from one side and then it becomes easier to pull the tissue around.
f9.jpg
 
Slowly and carefully heat set the tissue. You will observe that the candle starts melting and the tissue paper gets absorbed right into the candle, leaving only the design behind. This process requires a lot of care as you may burn yourself while holding the tissue in place. 
(I am so sorry… I could not click these in between pictures as I was completely engrossed in holding the tissue in place) 
Once the entire tissue vanishes set the candle aside for cooling down.
(Scrap out any additional drops of melted wax if any)
Possible image 1
Now you can decorate the candle using materials from your stash such as ribbons, flowers, beads, charms, twigs etc. This is how it looks. I have adhered a lace at the bottom of the candle. I did not decorate it much as then the images won’t be seen.
 
Check the video clip showing the finished candle here:
 
 
 
Possible image 1
 
QUICK GUIDE: How to Gift wrap this candle:
I have taken few things from my stash such as Gelatin paper, satin ribbons, pearl string, flowers, twister strips and some tags.
C1.jpg
 
I wrapped the candle with the Gelatin and tied with the twister. Tied a satin at the neck and decorated with flowers, pearl string. Lastly, added the tag!
C2.jpg
C3.jpg
I made one more tiny candle using the Damask this! stamp set. 
ST-MIN-29_515x768-800x800.jpg
c4.jpg
 
 
Wasn’t that a great way of decorating your candles?
Some important tips:
  1. One can use coloured inks or can colour the images on the tissue before heat setting it.
  2. This technique can also be done using the stencils and distress inks on the tissue paper and heat setting it once dry.
  3. The important thing to remember is that the inks/colors should not be very wet as the tissue may tear.
