challenge21 festival of colors.jpg
A LITTLE  ABOUT ME
“I am Shikha Agrawal and I am a Passionate crafter and i reside in dhule, with my mom-dad and sisters and own an art gallery S2 Art Connection.
ideally completed fashion designing and 
i love crafting and arts since my childhood.
I am into this venture from last 5 years professionally. Initially I started making explosion boxes, pop-up card, bouquets, scrapbooks etc.. as i started exploring the huge world of crafting my passion tends me to do/learn many more new things. Basically my mom is also an artist but she could get any platform.. i therefore, represent myself as her skills that are passed on to me.”
MY CRAFTING STYLE:
Particularly i dont tend to have any crafting style.. but yes i love much more many innovative cards and especially scrap booking..but these days i have been fan of stamping as well as heartfelt creations. i love working on my craft projects with low music and lots of stuff scattered all around me.. It refreshes after crafting especially when i am upset or low.
MY INSPIRATION:
Firstly as i said earlier its definitely my mom..
i love when people around me, who appreciate my work and it boost me to do more beautiful projects..
as i started exploring crafters my inspirations are:
vinita jain
anita kejriwal
darshana savla
rajni chawla.
MY VIEWS ABOUT craftyscrappers
I came to know about craftyscrappers through social media which was facebook.
i then started exploring their store, and the most amazing things i found there are cute,beautiful and versatile range of stamp collections that they have, ranging from a wide array of themes and especially Indian festivals and stencils ofcourse.
the stamp sets are really very unique plus they are affordable to everyone and the best thing is they are “MADE IN INDIA”.
They have a huge collection of art and craft supplies which are also pocket friendly and versatile in nature.
The shimmer pastes that they have are one of a kind and they are the first ones to ever launch such amazing products in india,
the pastes are too awesome and yummy i would say… 🙂
Their effects are just out of the world!
frankly i just love craftyscrappers!
for their entire collection of stamps and other wonderful products which are also made in india.

I have a huge lot of their products, especially stamps in my stash and i love them!!!

I had few of the coloured images remaining, so I thought of making a bonus card!
I made a card using a ready-to-use shaker card pack.

 

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:
 
  • I lightly traced the placement of the shaker windows on the card base and distressed that portion using distress inks.
  • I adhered two bees and two flowers on the distressed parts using liquid adhesive. Mounted the foam layer over this, followed by the acetate and the top layer.
  • Before adhering the top layer, I stamped the sentiment and other details using Versafine ink and Stampoholic.
  • After adhering this top layer, I added the bee using foam adhesive. LAslty, cover the bee with glossy accents to complete my card.

(SPRITZING and MASKING TECHNIQUE)

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • I took a 4×6 top folding card base.
  • Using some scrap papers I masked off the top and the bottom portion leaving the middle part open for distressing.
  • Using Peacock feathers and Cracked Pistachio distress oxides, I created the ocean effect on the card.
  • I took the “Clouds-n-waves stencil” , spritzed it with water and placed it on the distressed part.
  • Dabbed the excess water using a paper towel.
  • Gently, peel off the stencil.
  • The part of the stencil with water lightens the distressed color leaving behind wave effect.
  • Let it dry.
  • Stamped the cute images, the mermaid and the mystical whale from the stamp set, “You are so rare” and colored them with zig markers and fussy cut them all.
  • I trimmed 2 pieces of white card stock of the same size as the white parts on the card.
  • Foam mounted the white pieces on the card, after adhering the Whale image on the card and stamping the fishes using distress oxide.
  • Adhered the Mermaid image on top of the layers with foam adhesive supporting it from below.
  • Lastly, stamped the sentiment,from the same stamp set to complete the card.

  • For this card, I placed the stencil on the distressed part and using a baby wipe, lifted the color through the waves stencil.
  • Next, stamped the fishes in Archival ink.
  • Stamped the images, colored with zig markers and fussy cut them.
  • I trimmed the white pieces, but this time before mounting it with foam adhesive, I adhered a piece of acetate on them to create a see-through.
  • Adhered the whale image on the card and stamped other details.
  • Later, mounted the two white pieces, stamped the sentiment and adhered the Mermaid image on the card.

Okay so Here are the projects which we are going to create Today:

 

feb.jpg

 

PROJECT#1: Mixed Media altered MDF board

 

ins.jpg

Untitled-1.png

step1.png

I took 10 inch circle shaped MDF board, and prime it using gesso, but instead of using brush, i used palate knife to apply gesso, this way i have texture on the surface, it is the best way to create texture on any surface easily, this is how it looks :

1.jpg

step2.png

I used MDF photo frame with word LOVE and steampunk gears of different shapes & sizes, which are easily available online or any local craft store, and then glue them to form a random composition.

2.jpg

step3.png

After everything dries completely, i added resin Victorian frame and cute little angel cupid, i also added paper flowers, (don’t worry about the embellishment colors), at the end we are going to cover everything with gesso.. and as i always says use whatever you have in your stash, okay so moving on to rest tutorial.. 🙂

3.jpg

step4.png

Added micro beads, this is one of my favorite thing to add to any mixed media project, and later cover entire project with gesso.

4.jpg

This seems all confusing and hard but trust me guys once you start building layers and embellishment you will find it easier than ever.

step5

I started coloring using Craftyscrappers “Shimmer sprays” named Juicy watermelon and Sweet sunshine, after you finish the spraying before it gets dried just tilt the project little bit so this way both the color will flow & blend together..
these sprays are so amazing that it goes on any surface as you can see here,
Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays are available in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from.

5.jpg
after it dried completely i used “fixative spray” to seal that shine n color,
as these shimmer sprays are water based.

step6

Next I used gesso to highlight the texture and elements using dry brush technique,
here the base coat colors does not scattered because i have sealed the colors using fixative, as you can see here, how beautiful finish i got in this project…

7.jpg

step7

I painted the letter LOVE and cupid using Craftyscrappers (pearl finish) SHIMMER PAINTSDreamy Daffodils and (gold touch)SHIMMER PAINTS- Tasty Cranberries  and used black paint to give depth to the project.

6.jpg

HERE’S A CLOSER LOOK AT THE SHIMMER PAINTS AND THEIR EFFECT:

8.jpg

step8

Added pearls and painted them using Craftyscrappers (gold touch) shimmer paint-
Tasty cranberries” , also splattered this color a bit, and voila!!
this is final & glorious look of the finished Project.

PROJECT#2: Mixed Media TAGS

 

p1.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL

  • I took two white cardstock tags 6 inches x 3 inches and using Craftyscrappers Damask stencil & texture paste created texture on both the tags..
    This way i made background on both the tags.
  • Colored 1st tag using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays- juicy watermelon and lushy orchid and 2nd tag using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays- sweet sunshine and lushy orchid, while color is wet tilt both the tag little bit to run the color from texture I created earlier.

 

TAG#1

t1.jpg

  • Moving to 1st tag, i Stamped the image and sentiments from Craftyscrappers Everything magical stamp set and colored them
  • I took 2 smaller tags around 2.5 inches x 1 inch and place them randomly.
  • I also took corrugated cardboard to adhere behind stamped image,
    (you can clearly see this step in the finished tag.)
  • After fuzzy cutting the image I adhere image on corrugated cardboard using double sided foam tape, and place different size n color paper flowers.
  • Once everything dries completely, used black watercolor to gave depth & after placing the sentiment I added maroon micro beads around the flower and distress the edges of tag using black ink pad… here we finished our first tag.

 

TAG#2

t2.jpg

 

  • For 2nd tag I used image from the Everything magical and sentiment from Adventure Awaits stamp set.
  • Took gears and colored them using turquoise blue acrylic paint and after it dries highlight them using craftyscrappers chalk paint “Zesty lilac”.
  • Placed them randomly to form a composition leaving one side of tag empty for corrugated cardboard.
  • I colored the stamped image and distress the edges of corrugated cardboard.
  • Place stamped image on corrugated cardboard using double side foam tape.
  • Added sentiment and silver micro beads in empty spaces.
  • I also distress the edges of tag little bit using black watercolor and this is how I finish 2nd tag as well.
