Hello!! My Arty and Crafty Friends,

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…

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.

Cute Distressed card by DT Member

H
DEC.jpg

A brief description

On how to create this fun card
 
  • Took a thick white cardstock and folded it into half in such a manner that front side is smaller than back side
  • Using archival ink “Vibrant fuscia” created the background getting a dense shade at bottom and moving with a lighter shade on top
  • Sprinkled few drops of water and removed the excess droplets with tissue
  • Using this cute stamp set “Wishing you Tons of Fun” by Craftyscrappers, stamped the images then colored and fussy cut them.
  •  Added a piece of acetate to the front side of the card using double sided tape
  • Punched the corners of the card 
  • Using “Brick stencil” from Craftyscrappers added the embossing ink using sponge on the cardstock and acetate
  • Added gold embossing powder and heat embossed it. I repeated the process to get a thicker layer
  • Lastly added the images using foam tape and added few sequins and sentiments.

Then I marked it as shown in pic.

step2
 Cut it and keep aside.
p3.jpg
step3
Then i took some a sheet of handmade paper
and started sticking it around and joining all panels.
p5.jpg
(This is how it will look after joining all three panels.)
step4
Then i cut some more chipboard to stick on inside panel
and make a window to put picture.
p6.jpg

step5
Inside I stuck two of such windows,
one on each side and covered with some handmade paper borders.
p7.jpg
(This is how it looks after finishing making the photo frame.)
p8.jpg
step6
Now is the turn to embellish the frame and make it look beautiful.
I have used Craftyscrappers mdf frame,some beads,some flower cutouts and inka gold.
p9.jpg
This is how my frame looks after arranging all these embellishments.
I have put inka gold on mdf frame to add touch of gold.
