I love your smile!

Hi to the blogland :)

It's been loooong that I have made a post....It'sa festive month going on and especially this year August is full of festivities for us!! I will try to be lil regular with my posts as I miss those interactions with wonderful set of creative people which I really got to know on blogland...

So here's a quick post... I wanted to create a tag keeping in mind few challenges.... I have created two tags....These are  basically a brand tag which is usually attached with the garment....

I did a layering with gesso at certain points and flower is made out of scrap using a balloon punch... in a pic you can see my elder one with her beautiful smile :)
 Sentiment is a sticker....and few more layering done with tissue paper and gesso.

Now the second tag...Please have a look..... Hearts are handcut from washi tapes....again BG created with gesso, tissue papers, acrylics and a bit of misting.... you can find a small bow also at the bottom made out of sequence lace. Sentiment is a stick on.

Hope you will like it :)

Happy crafting !

Bright sunshine for my lil corner :)

Happpiiieee Monday!!

Hey freinds...today I played with some trash and with few of my washis :) I always loved to treasure nice perfume/ deo bottles...I don't consider them as trash....so I have one of these vacant bottle of David off cool water deo.... ( ignore this as this is a full one :)
Now I thought of creating some sense out of the vacant bottle and wanted to work with washis....so I tried creating some artifical flowers from washi....this is something very easy and interesting to make :)
Take washi tapes, floral wire and flower stamens.

To make flowers...
take one 6 inches floral wire... I just wanted to add all the flowers in a single wire otherwise you can take one length per flower petal.
Now to create petal loops...wrap the center of each wire around a pen/ pencil or any other round object but keep in mind it should be less than the diameter of the width of washi tape to create petal loops.

create your own desired petal shape. Now put it on a washi tape half the length and fold the remaining tape over. press it so that it can be glued together and then trim with craft scissor to create your own desired petal shapes. Sorry for the bad quality of pics :(

Now you will have your flower petals ....
For the leaves make the wire straight and cover it with washi at diffrent lengths. Lateron, trim it with a scissor to get the desired shape. Place flower stamens between 5 flower petals. Wrap it with tape several times even after adding leaves to it. Wrap the floral wire till the end and then give  those flower petals a desired shape by pressing a bit.

 These are so beautiful and bright....
Now here comes my bottle.....
 I wrapped around my scrap glitter paper cutting...and few roles of my washi tape....topped it with some bling...at the bottom you can find shimmer with some sea embellishments...they were actually going along well with this sea blue bottle I guess... few months back we camped at deodhar forest from where I have collected these wooden flowers to use in my projects or pot potpourri...so here's my first attempt to show case it as a embellishment....i painted with silver pearl glitter acrylic paint.

Now here's the complete look....

Hope you will like it :)

Happy Crafting!!

Oh sooo Washi!!

Happy Sunday!!

Today I will make a quick post, a project which I have made keeping in mind few challenges :) Again, It's an upcycled project... have a first look from where I have started... It's an old box which came with some electronic devices from Bosch... I kept it as i never throw my boxes :)

 Now I thought of making something useful out of this....as all my ribbons are not placed properly and they always ready to mingle with anything ;) So I covered the box with my collection of washi tapes but I was not satisfied with the plain top...so again I experimented and tried to gave it a different look...here it is... the top should not be hollow from inside so I filled it with bubble wrap.
Some more close ups...
Above is the front...
 the side walls....
 back and inside look...I'm happy that all my ribbons are at one place and settled now :) that's how I created my trash into keepin my treasure ;)
Hope you will like it!
Happy Crafting :)

Stuck On U!

Happy Saturday to the blogland :)

I'm still stuck on my bed and somehow it gave an instant kick to my creative side...well don't know is it positive or negative but I'm through with another tag for the day:) That too in stitching which I have tried for the first time...well It's so because I'm lil scared with needles :( though it hurt me quite some times while creating this tag but I never wanted to opt for faux stitching and that's something which I have created for the one I love :)

So this was the tag available with me...

and it turned outlike this after applying few coats of gesso and acrylics...and a bit of spray

sentiment- handwritten... "Stuck On You!"

I know it can be better...hope you will like this attempt.

Have a craftylicious weekend :)

Glitter glitter all the way :)

Happieee Thursday to all my blogging friends :)

Today I am posting a project on which I was working on quite some time...but first coz of busy schedule n then coz of health issues unable to finish it. Even today also I'm down with high fever but just got it completed last night and never wanted to waste a moment while publishing :) Kindly ignore the bad quality of pics as I am actually not in a state to do some wonders there...for me the actual thing in my hand is the most beautiful then anything else ;)

Here's a first look -

I have ordered few stuff online and whenever I get cardboard boxes i never ever threw them... So juz a first look that from where I have started :)
Now I will show you how to make this house-
find a template you would like to work upon. Cut it out and trace it onto cardboard.
For small houses, cardboard from cereal boxes and gift boxes work's graet. For larger houses, I like to use a thicker cardboard like from a paper ream box.

Before cutting the shape out , score any fold lines. Now you can glue together the house itself. Just fold along your scored lines, and glue the same. It should look like this.

For the walls and base I have used a thick cardboard but for chimney, doors,roof i have used slightly thin cardboard so that it can easily be glued. On the base make a ridge like the way shown above....it's not necessary but it can reallly add years to your project life.

Now comes the layering part which actually changes the final finish of the project. Lot of layering done on this project. At first, there's a complete coat of pearl silver acrylic hobby idea paint on the entire project...but it was actually giving a dull look :( 
Then comes coat2 of my wonder product- Gesso...it actually gave a very fine finish to it after that I again colored it with pink for walls and yellow for roof/ door and once it got finished and all dried up I sprinkled magical...whimsical...mesmerizing glitters from itsy bitsy on it :) 
These kind of Houses one can easily see in (Interlarken and Luzern) Switzerland...and the best part no matter how beautiful that house is you will always find a broom standing out that house! I always wanted to own something like this...happy that finally m able to create one for myself :)
Now the backyard-

My broom stick made from twine :)

Chimney and pls find the layering effect at the joints...it came out well :)

If theirs any gaps while pasting then fill it with glue lateron glitter will fill it up. Use one color of glitter at a time to avoid any mess up...it takes a very lil time to dry.
 Base is made out of thermocol cut out and a thick cardboard...covered with washi tape. I hope you will like this project :)

A quick little edition of an upcycled mixed media tag here...
a layer of gesso...

Again a layer of distress inks then added Fenugreek seeds and brown mustard seeds but not so happy with the outcome...will be adding more layers to it... 

Now applied acrylic colors and gesso to get the desired result. A small window is a hand cut filled with matching flowers. Somehow I really like the efect of things which are easily available at home...so easy and soo much fun to work with....

and the sentiment...

The final look of the project...

Happy Crafting!
