Without further ado..

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

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

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

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

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.

Now.. lets talk a little about the supplies that i have used.

This is the first time i have used fun foils
To create both of my projects i have used, the
SIZZLING SILVER fun foil.

 

SIZZLING SILVER
these fun foils are super shiny and are of professional grade .
They work well with any lamination machine available,
if you want to heat transfer using these super shiny foils or
they can also be used with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils… which is great!!! since many of us do not have lamination machines at home, Craftyscrappers also have launched, the fun foil glue, that works perfectly with these fun foils.They come in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from as well.

 

 

Then i also used the amazing and one of a kind shimmer paste, that stand out from the rest of the products in the market.
The shimmer pastes that i used for the projects are

 

 

IMAG2797
SHIMMER PASTE-BUTTER

and

IMAG2783
SHIMMER PASTE-TICKLED. 


These shimmer pastes add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project  and you can use any kind of stencils with these shimmer paste to create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.
The best thing about them is that these can be used on paper, cardboard,chipboard,acetate, wood, glass,mdf,fabric and even on layered stencils.
These shimmer paste r so smooth and so shiny… that i love to work with it and the results are super-duper awesome.


To create my artwork. i have also used the
shimmer sprays.
The shimmer sprays that i have used for my projects are :



GRAPE JUICE(CS-SSP-04)_677x768
SHIMMER SPRAY-GRAPE JUICE

AND

 

SWEET PUMPKIN(CS-SSP-09)_696x768

BEAUTIFUL TAGS: a complete tutorial!

Hello friends,

 This is Anila over the blog today,
and i have some tags tutorial to share with you today,
using different techniques and mediums.

fk

 

 



Who doesn’t love tags… 🙂
Stampers have used tags for years to create mini works of art.
A tag is small that is not too  intimidating very easy and fun to create..
that is .. it’s okay, even if you mess up.
Tags are great for experimenting with new techniques, too.

 

So I created these three easy yet fun tags with stamps, inks,
sprays ,stencils and shimmer pastes…

 Here’s a look at the completed tags:

of any size to create your own custom sized tags.

Took the tag, secured it on the table with washi tape.
Then Secure the stencil over the tag with washi tape.

step3

Take sufficient amount of shimmer paste (Separate stencil and shimmer paste for each tag) and evenly spread it across/through the stencil.
The shimmer paste that i am using here is called,

step4
 
Repeat the same for all the three tags.
After applying a generous layer of the shimmer paste,
I let it air-dry. (You can heat-set it too!) 
(this is how they look…)

step5
 
 
Once dry I sprayed two of the tag with the coordinating shimmer sprays from my DT kit. (Spray each tag separately)
The shimmer pastes and shimmer sprays are extremely versatile and beautiful in itself.
The shimmer sprays that i used here are,
SHIMMER SPRAY-Grape juice and SHIMMER SPRAY-Sweet Pumpkin

(Applying Distress inks on the craft mat and picked up the color with water brush)

Let the tags dry again. 
(this is how they look…)

step8
 
Next, I started layering the tags with pollens and lots of flowers.

I tried to use the matching colored flowers and pollens for each tag.
Like this stem color tag with coordinating flowers…

step10
 
I stamped a seperate sentiment for each tag from Craftyscrappers stamp sets
and mounted them on the tag using foam adhesive.
I tied twines along with coordinating ribbon through the punched hole.
Lastly added matching sequins from craftyscrappers to add some elements.

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.
