Mixed it is

Heya all,

I'm sharing a photoframe a mixed media (well kinda) project today. The photoframe was gifted to me by my sis-in-law and over time its color got worn out so I gessoed it, basically I mixed gesso with a little bit of tsukineko antiquing solution in walnut ink, then painted all over the frame. Put in three pics of me and DH. The paper is from secret crush (again scraps from the 12x12 pack cover). The heart is hand cut and glittered. The XO is chipboard elements from Fancy pants, glittered them myself though. The mini alphabet stickers are from simple stories fabulous line. I pretty much loved the way this frame turned out. 


The second project is an altered photo frame. My sis gifted my hubby this when we got engaged :) It's a hot pink glass frame with the a place to put two pics. My hubby never liked it for the fact that it was hot pink, always said it was too bright and too girlish. So I decided to alter it. I can't really say if its mixed media because all I used gesso, a tissue paper, and antiquing solution. All the flowers are handmade except the tiny roses. I printed the butterflies and inked them gold and vintage photo. Both the die-cuts doily and sentiment were cut from cream card stock and then inked using ranger's walnut stain, vintage photo and barn door distress inks. Here are the pics and a few close up of the flowers. And yes I love that little birdcage charm. Hope you'll like it as well.

recycled.....

Hey all,

Hope your day's going great. I have a recycled project to show today. I had a 12x12 photo frame which broke around last weekend. My DH was about to throw it when I decided to recycle it. So here's what I  came up with: two earring holders and weekly planners. I managed to salvage 10 frames out of 12 :)

Here are the pics:


The wrapped burlap on to the wooden plate of the frame, put in three strings of white twine and assembled it back, and viola my earring holder is ready :)


For the planner I simply put the pattern papers instead of pics. Those weekday tags are simply placed and not glued so the best part is I can change the papers any time and use them too :)


I love both of them. Hope you like it too.

love love love........

Hey Again,

More cards to share :) The first one has handmade burlap flowers and a burlap base. The hero arts stamp background is embossed and inked in three tones. I love this one. 


This card is pretty simple, no inking just heat embossed in gold. The third one's also simple, I just embossed it using itsy bitsy embossing folder and then ran my versamark white cloud chalk inkpad over the embossed design. The heart is hand cut and painted in white again. I hand wrote the sentiment in this one. I hope you'll like them all.



I'm entering these at the following challenges:

Love of paper scraps..... and a good news :)

Heya peeps,

Today I'm gonna share two cards I made with scraps. Well almost scraps! I bet none of us crafters want to throw even the most useless piece of pattern papers and same goes for me. I have pink paislee's secret crush paper pack and I didn't even wanted to throw the cute tiny squares papers that came as the cover. So I used them to make cards and they came out fabulous. Here's what I did: I cut them and then adhered them to cardstock. After that then rounded the corners. 


I had seen a card at Geny Cassady blog. My bad, I don't have the link for exact post! That card is the inspiration for the first card I made. The heart is hand-cut, glittered and sealed with glossy accents. 


After I finished the first card I was still left with the so they were used on the second card. The second card is a 4.5x4.5 inch card.


I have been because I was in the process of applying for my MS in US of A and the good news is I have been admitted to a prestigious school in Bay Area, yaay!!!!! I'll be taking off for MS in Cloud Computing next year. I'm super duper excited for it. More so because US means craft supplies, yippie!!!! Besides this there were a host of other things too and finally I'm free, free to craft, sew do anything..... It's not that I haven't been crafting but now I'll have more time. So expect more of me around now.

Till we meet again, stay happy!!!

My whole heart........

Hello peeps,

I have been busy the last year, as I have wrote in my earlier posts life's keeping me busy. For whatever was keeping me busy is now over. Here's a card that I made a few months back, yes I have a lotsa backlog. I have been creating but not posting so hopefully I'll be posting all the stuff I have been making. Here it is :)


I loved the color which was in the color PDCC #186 splash challenge and so chose to make another one in nectarine. Here's how it looks when open. The right most flap has a mini booklet and I love it totally :)  The next pic is a close up of the mini book.



I hope you'll like it. Thanks for dropping by.

much love,

Heya Peeps,

I've been missing from the blog for a long long time. Obligations, obligations and some new things happening in my life put me away from the blog. Granted I have been missing from blog but not from crafting. I'll be sharing two cards today and another post will follow for scrapbook layouts. I created one of these cards for the Playdate Cafe Challenge# 186. I simply love this week's color at PDCC. So much so that I made two more cards with it :P I will share them soon. Here's the card for PDCC



Its much pretty in hand. I couldn't do justice while taking the pics. Hope you like it :)
cya soon!!
