A beautiful Change!

Hello Everyone, today I have a very beautiful project to share with you all! Its quite summery , bright and shiny on my part of the world. This project is inspired by where I live , mood boards and definitely the fun of working with colors and chips.

The moodboard of Dusty Attic inspired me a lot not only with the bright yellow and orange but also with the theme. I am working with lot of chips featuring in my projects and also in my altered Canvas I preferred to pick up a quote as a focal point than an image or a photograph.

So here's some close ups and the project I created.Every element in my project has a story to attach to the layout.


 
Here I am using a Dusty Attic chipboard inspired by the wedding bouquet and the tale center piece. I gessoed it and then painted it green with some splashes of stones.

   
    I love flowers and love to make handmade ones, so the orange and yellow color palate in the moodboard is from where I picked up the colors also flowers form part of the storyboard. The chipboards are colored with golden and silver sparkles depicting the bride shoe in the picture.



    Creation of a butterfly is a new life , a new beginning and so is the wedding . I loved the quote as it adds a lot of depth.

       
    Here's the final canvas which shows the entire layout with all the elements,.


   

I am entering this in the dusty Attic Blog. Below is where you will find all the elements I used from



Hope you liked it and do share your love and comment.

Until then Happy Crafting!

Memories.. are FOREVER!

Hello Friends, its been a while I have blogged my creative journey and new inspiration with you all! However various challenges around the world tickled me to get into my creative juices.

Today I have a mixed media Canvas for you all inspired by 2 mixed media challenges and also introducing the Craftslane newly launched chips. You can see all the beautiful wooden chips here at the link Craftslane.

Now onto the project, I love keeping 2-3 colors on my canvas while leaving a lot of the white space allowing it to draw most of the focus on the element. Also I prefer to use words and phrases instead of photographs.


I chose the Frame and Memory as a inspiration from the More Than words challenge and the color palette from Mixed Media Art Challenge. Create mixed media textured background on which assembled on the various elements , chips , Prima flowers around a decorate Prima Frame.



Choose a Resin Frame around which all  the elements are assembled and also the word Forever. Memories are for forever hence Forever signifies Memory for me.



The color palette , flower and the butterfly resonates in my mixed media canvas.

Smile!

Hello friends, welcome to another post of mine where I am breaking some of my comfort zone , playing with some colors , wooden chips and foam flowers.

I am at Craftslane today with their amazing collection of Wooden bases , chips and some paints which has been newly introduced.

I have taken a wooden round placement mat and covered with white gesso. Later cover the base with some lace , corrugated sheet ,  and also stencil the background. Once all covered apply another quote of white gesso. Once all dried you can choose your paint and then start with the layers. For the flowers I have shaped them using a foam sheet and some stamens. The color palette I tried and kept it to Magenta , ruby and shades of pink. Used the Bird cage as the focal for the layout.After applying a coat of white gesso painted the cage white and also added the small birdie.








Hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!
Until then Happy Crafting!

Lets Celebrate!

Hello Friends, welcome to another project of mine where I have used the newly released peonies in a very different way. Yes its not shaped flowers or glitters but simple coloring. Actually when I received this collection in my hand I was tempted to start coloring seeing the beautiful images of the peonies.



Instructions

The final card measures 5.5” x 4.2” and in created with some water coloring and layering to raise the colored peonies. The card is pretty simple however the coloring of the peonies will take some attention and time as the sketch is very accurate and details. The more the shades the better will be the folds of the flower petals. First stamp the small and large peonies on a white card stock using black archival ink. First apply a very light coat of the Plum archival ink on the edges and the center of the petals. Later using zig brushes and Raspberry pink start shading every petal. This way complete all the flowers and leaves.To create the background stamp some peonies images at random corners using Shadow Grey archival Ink. Cut and score a grey card stock at 4.25”x5.5” to form the card base. The stamped white card stock measure 1/8” less than the card base. Using a foam adhesive adhere the top layer to the card base. Once the card panel is ready layer the colored peonies and then on top attach the sentiment. All the layers are raised using chipboard pieces.

Inspire!

Welcome friends to another beautiful Sunday where I am playing with some spring colors , canvas and brushes. 2018 is a year to experiment, learn new art form and definitely be out of your comform zone. With that thought in mind I created a mixed media canvas inspired by many elements and moodboard.

Primarily the moodboard Mystic at Mixed Media and art inspired me to conceptualize the canvas. Various elements , color and the concept has been incorporated in my canvas.

I picked up the main colors which is shades of green , brown and black.The sketch shape round at one far end inspired me to create the shape of my focal point. For the texture I added moss , leafy woody brances ( These are real ones picked up from the road, washed , dried and then gessoed). The creeper plants in the image also helped me add the branches and leaves.



The word Trilogy inspired me in a fun way I must say. All the trilogy movies have always shown how time has travelled , sitiation has changed and new characters have evolved.I have used a clock stencil to create my background depicting the number III and also a wooden clock chipboard which is added as an element to represent time.



The moodboard has inspired me to collect all my elements , colors that I would use for my project hence the canvas says " Inspire"








I am entering this canvas in the below challenge:
