NATURE: PRIKA

Hello Friends!!!
I'am so excited to share my new mixed media wall art piece "NATURE", designed for PRIKA - All About Crafts Blog. This creation is so close to my heart, as it brings lots of positive vibes, Don't you think ? 


I am a nature lover and admiring nature around you will ignite your inner self-generating a positive attitude in your nature. For me, a simple way to attract good energy is to be in nature. Filling my home with these type creations with positive energy really help me to raise my vibrations and help me along my path of purpose. I love to make many DIY projects to keep in my house which inspires nature. The beauty of flowers, color of the nature and touch of the breeze is what makes me stay happy and feel also others happy too.


I have created this mixed media decor piece with lots of pistachio shells, I loved the effects so much. I used some supplies from Prima marketing- Finnabair like Rust effect paste set, Metallique Green Olive acrylic paint, 3D gloss gel and Lindy's sprays, magical shakers, as they are so perfect if you want to add colors of your choice. 
Kindly go through images, description below and enjoy the making of this mixed media decor piece.


Step by step tutorial for making Mixed Media art piece "NATURE".

Step.1: I applied Prima Marketing Haevy Gesso-White to cover the whole MDF piece, dried it properly. Then, added some natural twigs, pistachio shells and natural brown hemp twine to create background with lots of nature inspired elements like branch of tree with a nest, flowers, leaves, weeds beside the lake. 

Step.2: Then, I used different stencils with Prima Marketing-Modeling Paste- Opaque Matte to create some extra textures here and there. After drying, further added many colors using Lindy's starburst sprays (Drop Dead Gorgeous Green and Sea Grass Green), also added other shades using Bratwurst Brown magical shakers.

Step.3: I used many die cuts leaves (colored with Mont Marte acrylic paints Lemon Yellow and Sap Green), woolen thread, paper clay embellishments,metal charms and miniature eggs to give it a beautiful scenic textures and effects. I used Prima 3D Gloss Gel to adhere all the embellishments. Then, dried it completely and added Finnabair Art Alchemy- Metallique Green Olive acrylic paint along with some Lindy's sprays ( (Drop Dead Gorgeous Green and Sea Grass Green). Dried completely using heat gun.

Step.4: I selected some Little Birdie 3D alpha stickers from Itsy Bitsy to write "NATURE" sentiment and colored them with Lindy's magical shakers (Bratwurst Brown and Lederhosen Laurel) by sprinkling some magical powder on the letters.

Wonderful Life: Crafty Cardmakers

Hello Friends!!
Today, I am going to share a mixed media canvas, this time for the monthly challenge over at Crafty CardmakersAs the theme for current challenge #209 is Water, so I decided to alter an old mdf piece by using some easily available waste material, to go with the theme and made this mixed media mini canvas.

This month challenge is hosting by our so talented team mate  Josephine
You can enter anything is fine, a card, scrapbook layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Water theme.
Hope you will join us at our amazing challenge.
Click here, to join us our challenge with Water theme at Crafty Cardmakers.
Here is my project: 


Friends, here, I am sharing an easy and quick step by step tutorial for making this Mixed Media Canvas "Wonderful Life":

Step 1: Select a canvas or mdf place mate of your choice, cover it with a cotton fabric and create some textures by shrinking fabric in the lower part of the canvas. Now add some easily available waste items like Pistachio shells to create more dramatic background. These pistachio shells will give the perfect look of stones on canvas. Let it dry and then cover it with white gesso or home made texture paste and let it dry.
Step 2: Now spray Lindy's Starburst spray- Sassy Sapphire over half of the canvas and add some Mont Marte white acrylic paints to create some sea theme background.
 Step 3: Now spray some Lindy's Starburst spray- Drop Dead Gorgeous Green on the part which consists pistachio shells and give some algal look to the background by adding some more green and brown shades of  Mont Marte acrylic paints. Let it dry completely by using heat gun.
Step 4: Add some textures to the canvas through a stencil and dry it completely.
Step 5: Then use some embellishments like foliage, leaf die cuts, some colored cheese cloth pieces, some dried natural elements and more.
Step 6: Make this canvas more realistic using some sea shell embellishments. Remember to use some more strong glue to stick these embellishments like Prima's Heavy Body Gel/ Gloss gel or any other easily available and affordable strong adhesive. 
Step 7: For final finish add a sentiment using Tim Holtz idea-Ology - Metallic Stickers.

Diary of Events

Hello Friends!!

Here, I am sharing my another project as an entry for March challenge at PRIKA All About Crafts- Blog, and "Old Turned New" inspired with the theme.

This art page made using Lindy's Magical Shaker set and Prima-Finnabair Rust Effect Paste.
This is my first attempt for making an art journal page. I used an old altered cute note book which I gifted to my caring and handsome brother on his birthday. I made this art page inside this altered note book, when my brother came to me on his vacations.



He just love the splash of colors and rustic look of it, so now he is also a big fan of Lindy's
I had a lot of fun creating the background!
Done some textures by using handmade texture paste and created a mix of loads of Lindy's Magical Shakers. At the end done some stenciling and added some sentiments by using Tim Holtz idea-Ology Clipping stickers. The Rust Effect Paste are from Prima, 
Just love the the end results. I am mad about these Lindy's Range.

Few quick steps of making this art page:

I clicked a few pics of the process and I would like to share them with you all, along with the process to get there! Here are more pictures of this page at the end.
I started with a Papericious-Sigma card stock (Ivory) and cropped it same size to stick inside the note book. First I used Prima Clear Gesso for preparing its base.
To add more dimension, I added textures on left page by using homemade texture paste and stencil from my stash. I dried it thoroughly. Then sprayed water with spray bottle and started adding loads of Lindy's magical to make a color splash. 
Same process followed on the right page too, but without adding any texture to it. Again dried it thoroughly, in this step I left it for over night and in the morning, all colors mixed up so well. Have a look.
Then I used Rust effect paste, I have added rust effect pastes on all the edges using my index finger to give it some more interest. 
 Then I added texture to right page by using Brown rust effect paste and created some tree shapes with the help of stencil. I dried it thoroughly and then added some Lindy's magical with the help of fine tip brush to bring out some textures, dimensions, and a scenic effects as I imagined.
Once, I was happy with my art page, I added sentiments by using some clipping stickers from Tim Holtz Idea-ology to give it a finish look.
