I am so in love with the products, the Stamps are one of a kind,with beautiful designs and are of high quality, They have come up with lots of mixed media stamps, which i totally love! then there are the shimmer sprays  which are a must have, such vibrant colors they are available in, with the touch of shimmer ,jazzes up makes each and every project, The good thing about these vibrant sprays are that they can be used in multiple surfaces.(Trust me, i have tried them on different surfaces, paper,wood,mdf,chipboard-and they work like a charm)
The stencils on the other hand are super quality with amazing designs, a crafter has the option to select the sizes, whether small or big and they have lots of mixed media stencils too, not to mention the layered stencils-ohh i love them!
And then there are these awesome chalk paints that are also my favorite, you can use them for backgrounds or even use them with stencils to add dimensional touch to  your projects, isn’t that amazing!!

Okay so moving on to my tutorial now…

MARCH BLOG FEATURED.jpg

So for my tutorial today, i have come up with an idea of colorful and vibrant project,
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.

step13.jpg

A close up pic:

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • To create my background, I have used the mini Hearts stencil and I applied texture paste and gave it a touch of  Baby blush pearl shimmer paint mixing with slight water randomly and at the edges too.
  • Both of the robots and a cute tiny love bulb are stamped in Jet Black archival ink.
  • For coloring I used (pearl-finish)Shimmer Paints: Creamy Cantaloupe and Baby’s blush and mixed it with my Zig markers color brushes and fussy cut them.
  • I added a love bottle fully loaded with different glitters, sequins and hearts and tied it with a love bulb image.
  • Added some Liquid glossy accents to the love perimeter, eyes and heart to finish the front of the images.
  • Placed a tulle net in pink at the bottom of the card panel and adhered it with my mulberry flowers and pollen flowers.
  • I slightly applied the  Shimmer Paint:  baby blush at the edges of rose flower petals too. 
  • I added the sentiment on a black strips and heat embossed them in opaque bright white embossing powder and highlighted the word Glow with Magenta twinkle glitter embossing.
  • To create more interest added some die cut gears in different shapes and colors and bling the centers too.

Card# 2

Can I just say I love this set!!!!
The images are so cute for words if you ask me!!! 

3.jpg


A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • I used another robotic images from the same Beep-beep stamp set and water colored with my Steadtler pencils, fussy cut them. I do think the image and sentiment say it all so it ended up being a clean and simple shaker card. 
  • I added a thin strip of the mini stencil: Rays, which is stenciled in different dye colors.
  •  I die cut the the inverted scallop rectangles out of white foam sheet 3 times to move my shaker elements properly!
  •  The sentiment is heat embossed in a blue strip. Added a few googly eyes, some clear tiny rhinestones, hearts, ringlets and there you have it!
