step1
Prepare Surface

I took a empty glass Jar, cleaned it’s surface properly and applied a coat of gesso.
A layer of gesso makes the surface ready for painting. 

 

Empty jar and gesso (before)


 
After one coat of gesso
step2
Paint the background
 
Once dried, I painted its surface with white chalk paint ( you can use acrylics too) using sponge and let it air dry.
 

 
After applying chalk paint
 
step3
Add Texture

Then I added the texture with Crafty Scrappers “Shimmer Paste” ( color – Dreams) using “Rose Bunch” stencil. You have to be very patient while doing this step…
I applied the Shimmer paste one side at a time and before applying it to another side ,
I let it air dry ( You can use heat gun to fasten this process :))

from Crafty Scrappers
to decorate my jar.

Shimmer sprays-The Mixed Media Way!

Hello Friends,

Today I am so excited…..
This is my first post for Craftyscrappers as a design team member.
I have a beautiful inspiration project –
A MIXED MEDIA CANVAS..
for you all where I have used a lot of Craftyscrappers products.

But before I talk more on these awesome products,
let me give you a glimpse of my work.
1
My inspiration behind this project are my two little princesses,
my daughters… Myra and Misha.
Possible image 1
A short HOW-TO,  make this piece:


step1

I used a canvas board as my base.
Then I applied a coat of Gesso all over the board.
On one of the corner,
I used Rose Bunch stencil from Craftyscrappers
cl1

with modelling paste and let it dry.

step2

I had an old crochet piece done by my mom which was little torn on half of one side…

crochet1

i used the other half to create a beautiful semicircle pattern running on side of the board.
I stuck this using multi medium matte glue.
After that I applied one coat of Gesso all over on the crochet piece.
step3
I made these flowers separately and colored them using distress inks.

2

Then they are hand molded to turn into blooms.
Center of flowers is enamel dots.
step4
Once all the Gesso is dried,
i started with my favorite activity with my favorite Craftycrappers release…
The Shimmer sprays
I have used a mix of 3 colors in sprays…

The effect is awesome….
I think my project is already speaking about the goodness of these sprays….
definitely a must try for all crafters and non crafters too.
step5
I have used heat tool to dry the sprays .
Then I used some quotes from “U SPARKLE” stamp set ….
(The stamp set that i used here is 5x5inch size, its the ideal size stamp set that can be used in all kinds of craft projects.)

sten1

 

Stamping with Craftyscrappers stamps is super cool…
as they are good with all surfaces.
I used black archival ink to do stamping.

step6

Lastly I have stuck some embellishments like beads, Inka gold, printed quotes from Prima marketing  , resin frame,mdf ruler embellishment and Stampendous gold luxe mix to enhance the beauty.
