Without further ado..

Here is the tutorial..( Picture heavy post ;))
step1

2.jpg

 

I took 8 by 8 inches framed canvas, Mod podge , kitchen towel (coz I like its dotted pattern ) and a paint brush. I tore the tissue paper and glued it over the canvas as shown with the help of Mod podge and let it air dry.

step2

3.jpg
Once the canvas was dried,
I applied a layer of Gesso over it to prepare the base for coloring.
step3
4.jpg

After that I stenciled the canvas with texture paste using Craftyscrappers  Rose Bunch Stencil and  let it air dry. You can use your heat tool to fasten the process.
step4
5.jpg
Now I sprayed  Craftscrappers “Grape Juice ” shimmer spray  along with water spray over the canvas till I was satisfied. 
step5
6.jpg

Then, I applied Gold Acrylic paint  to add some interest .
step6
7.jpg
 Once satisfied with my coloring, I arranged all my embellishment roughly on the canvas as shown. I have used some chipboards (colored these with gold acrylic color) , flowers, Butterfly die cut outs ( which I heat embossed with white embossing powder), metal charm, glitter balls etc to decorate it. I glued all my embellishment over the canvas with glue gun. 
step7
1.jpg
Then I  added the stamped sentiment… and if you are wondering what is this “Diddle” then let me tell you its my friend’s sister nick name for whom he asked me to make this canvas.
step8
Lastly, I covered the whole canvas with mod podge and let it dry overnight.

Possible image 1

 

So today I m here to share with you all,
my first tutorial post where
I”ll teach u a pregnancy album,
from start to finish!!

Possible image 1

 

 

Here’s a quick look  at the completed album.


1

 

 

So lets begin!
***(PICTURE HEAVY POST)

 


step1

I have Started with the mdf pregnancy album first which I bought from rakhi Mittal
and applied acrylic paint on the lady and  the corners too.

 


(This is how it will look…)

 

2

 

step2

 

Then, after the paint dried, I have cut the pattern papers according to the  measurements of the mdf album pages.
Then 
I covered the whole album and its pages with the  pattern papers.

 


(This is how they look…)

step3

 

After I finished covering the pages with the pattern papers, I took some  baby mdf embellishments  and applied a thick layer of gesso on all mdf cutouts.

 


(This is how they look…)

 

 

4a4b

 

step4

 

After I finished with the gesso,
I took a white card stock and the beautiful pregnancy themed stamp,
“GREAT ADVENTURE”  from Craftyscrappers and stamped the image,
colored and fussy cut them.

 


(this is how it looks…)

 

 

 

 

step5

After I fussy cut the image , i then  applied a layer of  glossy accent on to it, to add dimension and shine to the image and left it to dry.


(this is how it looks…)

 

5b


step6

 


After i finished with the stamped image, I started decorating the front cover of the album.
I took the mdf sentiment “so many happy memories” and coated it with gesso.
I  used the distress inks, spun sugar to add the color to the sentiment and  applied a thin coat of the shimmer paste,
“TICKLED” by craftyscrappers on to it. 
The shimmer paste r superb as it gives really nice dimensional effects!


(this is how they looks…)

step7

 


I then attached the “pregnant lady” that i previously stamped,colored and fussy cut, using some double sided foam tape,next to the mdf sentiment.
And positioned it to the left side of the album.
I then,took an oval shaped frame and decorated it with Craftyscrappers Mix mulberry flowers pack that i received in my DT KIT and stuck it on  the side of the corner, creating a beautiful bunch of flowers.
I also attached a butterfly on it, after applying a coat of  distress ink and ranger stickles to make it a bit shinny and also adhered a small piece of net under the flowers.
I also added  some mix embellishments (blings and pearls) and finished the page.

 


(this is how they look…)

step8
Next, I decorate whole Album in a similar manner as i did before, i decorated all the pages with the pattern papers and embellishments.
In few pages i have also used another lovely stamp sets from craftyscrappers,
“SWEET BABY” and “LITTLE ONE” that has some really cool sentiments that is very useful when creating pregnancy or baby related albums.

 


(this is how they look…)

After finishing the whole album I finally put some rings and decorated the albums  with ribbons and charms.

Here are some close ups:

Mom-to-be: A quick Journal!

Hello All Crafty Friends……….!!
 
This is Apurva here today over the blog,
with My First DT post For CraftyScrappers and I am super excited
to be a part of this amazing team which consist of super talented crafters.
Possible image 1
 
So let’s begin,
Pregnancy is a most memorable Journey in Life of A Mommy.
She goes through a lot of body changes, mood swings,
cravings and lot more things during this 9 month period.
When a baby arrives it is a wonderful moment to the parents as well as the family.
 
So I’m here today to showcase a Pregnancy Journal I have created for the “mom – to – be”.
using Craftyscrappers clear stamp, “GREAT ADVENTURE”.

Here’s a quick look  at the completed album.
1
I have used the  GREAT ADVENTURE stamp set from Crafty Scrappers to decorate the cover.

ST-BY-17[great adventure]_768x768
GREAT ADVENTURE

Look at this stamp set…
This stamp set is available in three different sizes so that we
can pick the size according to our crafting needs.
This super gorgeous stamp set,have some really nice sentiments (not to mention the beautiful calligraphy) that are perfect not just for making scrapbooks but  also for using them on cards.
You can create Baby shower, mom-to-be, new arrival or pregnancy and
baby related cards using them.
It has this beautiful pregnant lady in the stamp set, which is big enough to cover the front of a journal page.
You can also create the polka-dot pattern (included in the stamp set) to create different variations for the dress and the shoe.
And this beautiful stamp set was just so  perfect to match my journal and make it complete.

Let me give you brief about the journal album…

4

This is a 4×6 Journal and it doesn’t have much embellishment in it,
so that it is easier and handy to carry it in a bag and  a lot more easier to Journal.

I have designed this journal in such a way that the mom can write a lot of things in the journal as well as design it according to her choice.

Possible image 1
The journal has 3 signature Pages- 1st Trimester, 2nd Trimester 
and 3rd Trimester respectively.
Each Signature  page, includes 8 pages (16 sides) so there is a lot of space for journaling.
Here’s how they look….


I have also created pockets on the insides of front and back cover so additional things can be stored as and when required!
5

These are the weekly tags with numbers and sentiments on them.
These weekly tags are given to make the journal more interesting.
These can be inserted into the Signature  pages, that includes 8 pages and a total of 16 sides, to record the special events.
Sharing some of the Close-ups :

This quick and simple MOM-TO-BE journal was very fun to make, especially with the stamp set that covered everything from sentiments to the focus-image for the cover.
