A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • For this canvas, 
    Place the canvas flat on the table. 
  • Spray the shimmer sprays on the canvas and let them spread randomly and cover the entire canvas. Sprays used are Sweet sunshine, Grape juice and Sweet Pumpkin. Let it air-dry.
  • On a scrap green colored paper, put double tape on one side and die-cut leaves from the paper such that the leaf die-cuts have adhesive on the top. 
  • Gently peel the backing paper and place the fun foil (Green colored) on the leaf. Burnish it properly. (You can even run it through the Big shot machine, for smooth spreading.)
  • Peel off to reveal the leaves covered with the foil.
  • Repeat the process to make 3 more leaves.
  • To form a wreath we need 4 leaves (if the leaves are big) 
  • By now the canvas must have dried.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set, “santa’s christmas” in the center of the canvas. Arrange and adhere the leaves around the sentiment.
  • On a scrap paper put double tape, peel the backing paper and put red fun foil.
  • Punch out holes using a hole punch from the red foiled paper using the cherry red fun foils. 
  • On another scrap paper draw a bell and fussy cut it.
  • Cover it with Glitzy gold fun foil in the same process. 
  • Arrange and adhere the tiny red dots as cherries around the leaves on the canvas. Adhere the bells on the top of the canvas using foam adhesive. 
  • There your holiday canvas is ready!

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.

A PREGNANCY ALBUM: Start-to-finish!

Hi everyone this is Vani here on the blog today
and i m so excited with my first DT post for crafty scrappers

I m sure u must have watched the DT KIT REVEAL  video…
showing all the amazing things Konica sent me.
if not! you can check it here.

 

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…)

3

 

 

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…)

 

6a

 


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…)

 

 

IMG_20170905_1832047b7c7a

 

 

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…)

 

 

 

8A

 

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

Here are some close ups:
