MARCH DT KIT’2018 that i received:

MARCH DT.jpg

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!!
You can grab all of these at the Sale price over at our store, before the sale ends and the products go out of stock!

MARCH BLOG FEATURED.jpg

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

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
