A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  • I took 2 blank tags and colored them using Craftyscrappers “Grape juice” and “dancing peacock” shimmer sprays and lift excess color using tissue ( here I just dabbed tissue paper on tags at random places)
  • Created texture on the first tag using Stencil “Geometrical patterns” and Craftyscrappers “Sprout” and “Stem” Shimmer paste , Just lay down the stencil on tag and spread generous amount of paste using palette knife ( I must tell you this pastes colors are so gorgeous and beautiful that makes you to fall in love with your project again and again) #MustHaveSupplies
  • For second tag I used another shades of Shimmer paste and those are “Cupcake” and “Blush” using same technique (To see these amazing shimmer paste result, don’t forget to watch the video, It’s already up on our channel)
  • Then I took 2 raw Sea Horse chipboard cut-outs and also covered entire cut-outs using Shimmer paste called “Butter” & Tinted gold” and for another cut-out I used “Jet” Shade.
  • To give the base for these Chipboard cut-outs, I used normal white sewing thread and pasted it on tag, after that I glue down the sea-horse cutout on tag, I follow the same process for both the tags.
  • Finished these tags by distressing the edges of tag using Black ink pad and adding some inspirational sayings…

Mixed Media Scrapbook layout

 

IMG_20180415_214142_981.jpg

 

To create my mixed media scrapbook layout i have used Craftyscrappers,

 

HELLO STAMP SET

ST-FLW-16[hello].jpg

 

And  SIMPLE ALPHABETS stamp set

ST-ALP-01[SIMPLEALPHABETS].jpg

 

Along with “ INSPIRE” stamp set

 

st-mix-16.jpg

 

 

A Brief tutorial:

 

  •  I took 320 GSM watercolor paper and sprayed using Craftyscrappers “Rusty Denim” and “Sweet Sunshine” shimmer sprays randomly, not covering whole page as you can see in final image.
  • Then I took multiple stamps from stamp set called “Hello” and stamped the images using black ink pad.
  • I stamped those swirly images first so that little amount of those stamped images will stay behind the layers which I am going to add further
  • .Next I took round doily and also took 4 circle cutouts of paper, I colored those circles with Craftyscrappers “Rusty denim” and placed behind the actual images forming a composition.
  • After placing I used black color here and there to give little depth.
  • I took white paper and tore down the edges and distress them using black ink pad and brown ink pad, and placed beneath the photo & added sky blue resin frame to give finished look.
  • To put everything together I stamped dotted pattern stamp around the composition, for this I used “INSPIRE” stamp set.Voila!!!
  • Our mixed media scrapbook layout is complete.

  •  I took empty deodorant bottle, glued bottle cap so that it won’t get opened and applied “Greasy Charcoal” chalk paint using palette knife.
    (Using palette knife to apply paint is one of my favorite way to create texture).
  • I wrapped stencil called “Geometrical patterns” around the bottle and secure the stencil edges using masking tape.
  • I used Craftyscrappers shimmer paste “Jet” to create texture through stencil and also applied this paste on empty spaces of bottle just to put everything together.
  • Glued down metal leaves and wrapped thread around the bottle cap & also added metal handle.
  • Covered these added embellishment using “Greasy charcoal” chalk paint and added Jet shimmer paste.
  • After it dries I highlighted this bottle using Gesso,
    (Best way to pop out the elements which  added in project).
  • Finally seal this bottle using Fixative spray.

 

 

And Taaaa-Daaaaaaa!!! There you go, we finished this beautiful piece… Give it a try, and if tried don’t forget to tag us in your projects using #Inspired By Craftyscrappers.

In my March DT kit, I received some really awesome and one of a kind stencils,
To name a few, there was, Abstract patterns stencil, then Splash stencil,fading pattern mini stencil and Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil.

Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil

cs-stnl-18[CREATEAFLOWER-ROSES].jpg

I was eager to try them out the Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil as the layered roses impact is very trendy and popular nowadays. It is a bit tricky and requires a lot of practice. But After some successful attempts I managed to get some pretty roses.
I decided to fussy cut and use the good ones to make a card.

Okay so moving on to my tutorials now…

 

 

Card#1- Pretty Roses-Watercolor effect!

cs card1.jpg

Below is my take and trial methods I did.
I took  some clicks step wise to make it clear how to use them.
This is the direct impact of Create-A-Flower(Roses) stencil to make you the concept clear.
Untitled-1.png
step1.png
 To begin with,I used heavy whisper white CS and the  Altenew inks in the tones of purple and green to achieve a good result. You can use any dye inks but it should be various shades of same color family. I started with light to darker shades.
You can use pigment inks too but I refer for the best result to use dye inks only.
cs step1.jpg
step2.png
Place the stencil step wise as shown in the pics.
 
cs step2.jpg
step3.png

There are 3 rose elements too for masking.
I placed one of them according to the given size and added those leaves.

cs step2.jpg

 

Here’s how the final cut pieces looks:

 

cs step4.jpg

 In all I love this stencil set!
With little practice, roses were easy to align and love the final result after fussy cutting, so beautiful!
step4.png
Then i Die cut a scalloped circle frame 2 times out of white CS and a white foam sheet, made a stack. Now using my die,
I placed Abstract Pattern stencil on my white card base and applied dye ink.
cs-stnl-22[ABSTRACTPATTERNS].jpg
Now placed the stack of die cut scalloped circle
and added some splatters using Midnight magic shimmer spray for more interest and fun.
CS-SSP-06MIDNIGHTMAGIC.jpg
cs step5.jpg
The sentiment Hugs is a Pre die-cut from
Craftyscrapper Die cut set- “SMILE TOGETHER” in black
CS-DCS-07_585x768-800x800.jpg
and finished it with some enamel dots!
Here’s how the final card looks:

The inside view:
Happy Birthday sentiment is from Doodly Blooms stamp set.

Card#2: Time 2 Explore-MIXED MEDIA TECHNIQUE

cs card2.jpg

 

This is a popular panel theme card in mixed media style. I never plan out for my cards. I just started with 3 panels out of a textured white CS. 

Untitled-1.png

Using CS clock and numbers stencil I applied 3 different Memento dye inks to create my wall clocks.

 

cs-stnlm-13.jpg

 Then added another layer of CS Damask stencil in soft green!

I die cut some flowers and on a craft mat, sprayed those flowers with CS Shimmer Sprays Ocean waves and Sour eggplant, love the shimmery result.

 The MDF fairy is gesso first and then highlighted with
 CS Shimmer paint Royal Baby.

 Die cut some more different elements. The sentiment explore and number 2 die cut 3 times to make a good stack and on a top layer applied glossy accent for dimension. Now added all them to create the whole scene on a textured white card base. In the end added some shimmery splatters and applied gesso and shimmery paint to highlighted the flowers with more dimension.
