Decoupaged Storage Boxes

Hello Friends 
Decoupaging is catching up an I see most of the crafters try their hand on it ,  I resisted and finally gave up to the urge to make some !

These are pencil box boxes that I have painted with acrylic colours and decoupaged with pattern papers !

Embellished them with die cuts !!
Love the way they turned out .......Hoping to make many more interesting stuffs.

Hello CAS card

Hello Friends, I have tried out the split and splatter technique here to make this card !

Just used the paint brush and glittered water colours and created this splash of colours by just tapping the brush inwards ! Tried it with different colours and let the colours bleed for this effect
added the border and a hello sticker to complete the card ! I am happy with this sweet and CAS card

Decoupaged Chocolate Box

Hello Friends, Recycling is part and parcel of my crafting and today it feels awesome to share a creation which is totally made to be a new product all in all!

Today I am back with an Makeover - yes an empty Ferraro Roche box gets an Makeover! 

I have covered the box with DCWV pattern papers inside out !

I have altered the Chocolate box so that it can become a cover box to hold on to Family Memory Album I made earlier Here.

I have distressed the edges of the box with tattered rose distress ink and added an memories stamp to match with the album.

 Added on an Handmade Scallop Circle Flower and MS punch butterflies.

Recycled - Shabby Chic Alarm Clock

Hello Friends,
I have an interesting makeover today at my Blog , I have tried to use all the stuffs I hoard to recycle reuse or re-purpose! This is finally done after keeping it for years throwing out some and finally making one !

 I am talking about the empty brown tape rings , which i have used as the base ! 
Supplies used - Brown tape ring Sizzix Tim holtz alterations tick-tock die (BIGZ DIE-TICK TOCK)
 to cut Cardbaord and Dcwv  Pattern papers Old wedding Invitation card is cut in circle shape  Gift wrapping papers used for Flowers with Timholtz alterations tattered flowers die 
(BIGZ DIE TATTERED FLORALS)Brads a message bottle  ribbon lace 

I have painted the Brown tape ring in and out  blue with acrylic colours , for the inside backdrop  added the circle cut invitation card as the base to make it like a spool ! 

Both the ends I have stuck the Tick tock die cut which is sturdy because of the cardbaord to make it stand like a clock!

Covered the middle part with the ribbon lace from the tailors…

Crazy Birds Mixed Media Canvas wall art

Hello Friends , I have always loved working with different mediums on Canvas, till lately I dint realise that it was what Mixed media was ! 
Today I have created an Crazy Birds Mixed Media Canvas wall art for my Sons room using Tim holtz crazy bird stamp set! 

A work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage could properly be called a "mixed media" work, When creating a painted or photographed work using mixed media it is important to choose the layers carefully and allow enough drying time between the layers to ensure the final work will have structural integrity. If many different media are used it is equally important to choose a sturdy foundation upon which the different layers are imposed.

These stamped images of crazy birds were a sweet swap from a crafter friend Tanvi , I am not  such a big fan of these birds but when I  received it from her my son was all excited and wanted to make it his own ! 
Step by step tutorial

Must say they are a great ones for the mixed media…

DIY Tabletop Photo Album that Grandparents will love! Supplies needed to make your own Table Top Family Flip Album.
