Shabby Chic Door Hanger

Hello Peeps, 
Happy New year , Hope you all are having a great start... I'm all excited to share a lovely creation I ended up making for this years first post of mine at Mudra Blog!

This is a beautiful shabby chic door hanger that is absolutely every girls Dream ! 

I have used a leftover chipboard piece from my stash and put it to great use here.The base of the creation is created using scraps of pattern papers that I have accumulated and especially choose all shades of pink I had. They are pieces in different sizes and shapes but lovely to create an awesome background like this. Doesn't this  sound awesome and great reuse of the paper scraps you tend to save for better use.

I have used soft gel to stick and put together this whole background with the pattern paper scraps and then layered it with clear gesso priming it for the acrylics I planned to go over it with.I have stenciled the background with Asian Tile Pattern Stencil and texture paste. I just love the out come as I have gone randomly over the creation.Wildfloral Scroll Chipzeb looked perfect to start with in the center along with the Steampunk Heart Chipzeb. Further I decided to add the flowers and the succulents to complete the creation.The printed sentiment goes perfectly on the Shabby chic door hanger I created with Mudra Chipzebs and stencil.

You can see more closer looks and product details on the Mudra blog

Retirement Album scrapbook

Hello friends , 
I got a chance to create an retirement album on commission basis and this is how it all came together.
This is my first time making an Retirement album , though I have made Retirement cards and when it comes to albums I have made albums for Milestone birthdays and send off's for office colleagues nothing in particular to as named as retirement album hence I got excited to make this album.

This is a 8x8" ring bound album with 8 decorated sheets and each holding special events of the person this album was made for.

Sharing the outer page cover here in the close up. I have decorated the front cover page keeping in mind whom it is been gifted to hence used rustic colours and chipboard embellishments to go with the sentiment and the blue flowers.

The album was a request from a daughter for her Dad's 60th Birthday as well as Retirement, so the concept was well chosen and planned well in advance and executed with attention to all details. The stamped images are usually blue or brown in colours and I have used blue as the base cardstock for the whole album.

 The pages inside are decorated with old memories and new , as well filled with loving letters and messages from the near and dear ones ! There are flip flaps and inserts in many of the pages to accommodate the required pictures.

I have used the waterfall technique to put in all photos in sequence. You see all the close ups here.

All the pockets hold letters and love from all the friends and family who have been featured in the album. The letters were printed and put in lovely decorated envelopes and named accordingly, Totally a family treasure album I must say !

I was totally pleased to know that the receiver liked my creation and gave me an awesome feedback! What is more important for an artist than the happiness of seeing such positive feedback isn't it !!

Something Old- I have used Fiskars - Clear Acrylic Stamps - 8 x 8 - Good Times Quotes , one of my first stamp set purchased when I started crafting 7 plus years ago. This is a retirement album holding all Old memories as the receiver turns 60!

Something New- I have used Bob and Betty Optima paper pack that I have used for the very first time. The chipboard embellishments are from Mudra's latest release also. 

Something Borrowed/Gifted- The flower embellishments are Gifted by my crafter friends.

Something Blue-Bob and Betty Optima paper pack is filled with Blues and I have added flowers that are in blue and go along with the theme and papers.

That is all for today :) 
Happy Crafting!

Blessed - New year Mixed media creation

Hello friends ,
Im at Mudra's Blog with few more creations and inspirations towards the end of the year. 

 I have a Star Canvas for you , something I made during Christmas as a part of my Christmas Decor Ornament. I have used Snowflakes Stencils and decorated the stencil and then coloured it with blue and glitters. Further I have layered it with Snowflakes Chipzeb and Snowflakes Frame Chipzeb . Here you can see how I have gone about decorating the star and close ups.

I totally love how much we can do with  these chipzeb shapes....

Coming to my next project , This is a 8x8 canvas creation. I have created the base with all my scrap pattern paper pieces and decorated the way along. 

I have used Christmas Poinsettia Stamp to build the background and coloured the area excluding the stamped flowers.

I have used Handdrawn Mandala Chipzeb as the center of the creation and decorated along with flowers .

finally I have used Words#3 Chipzeb to complete the creation .

This creation is something dear to me as we come to an end of another year of creating , learning and inspiring ! Hoping to see you all next year...Happy New year to you all!
That is all for today. See you soon.

Christmas Decor Ornaments with Mudra picture frame Chipzebs

Hello Friends ,

Im over Mudra blog with inspirations for their current challenge - Seasonal card/projects.

Its time of the year when we all gear up to decorate the Christmas tree and its all about the holiday season.Since we do not put up a tree at home, my son volunteers at school to get the tree decorations and I gear up to make something exciting.

This year I decided to make our very own  Christmas Decor Ornaments with Mudra  Picture frame chipzeb collection. Here are the 3 different frames used to make these Christmas Decor Ornaments which can be personalised with family pictures, isn't it amazing?

1. Picture Frame – Rectangle Chipzeb Chistmas Decor Ornament.

I have used Christmas Chipzeb to create this beautiful scene on the picture frame. I have been waiting to create this scene since I got my hands on these chipzebs. 

How I have gone about it -
  • I have coloured the chipzeb with water colours first and then added the snow details with embossing texture paste. 
  • The look isn't complete without glitter, so I have used sparkle whipped cream over the roof and detailing on the snow and the tree to create this magic.

Here's the close up on how well it turned out on the frame -

  • For the frame I have dry brushed the frame with green chalk paint giving it a rustic look , I tried this technique for the first time but I totally loved the outcome ! 
  • I have added Christmas theme pattern paper in the background of the frame . 
  • I have added the snow flake chipzeb with glitters giving it the snow wonderland look.

2. Picture Frame-Scalloped Heart Chipzeb Christmas Decor Ornaments

3. Picture Frame Circle Chipzeb

These 2 projects are made simple and easy , I have used pattern papers and paints on the frame and covered it with glitters to complete the look I have added the red roses !
