Feel the nature

Hi there friends,
It's Pooja here once again! Welcome to you all at my blog. I am here today with my new mixed media project which I have made for itsy bitsy as my DT project. I love to draw inspiration for my craft projects from nature and I really enjoy doing it a lot...so this time, I thought I would bring you a mixed media on those lines. I hope you find it interesting and inspirational and get motivated to do something of your own.
Here is a picture of my completed project



This is how I did it.

  1. I have used a canvas as a base and  I have pasted a piece of cardboard to increase the width towards the lower end so that it gets a broader base to stand. After that I pasted some rags (any waste fabric pieces) on the canvas base as shown in picture

2. I have used white ceramic puffy paint for creating the lines over these fabric stripes.
3. When it was completely dry, I sprayed the base with difference shades of Color Splash. The shades I used were Lime, Ocean Mist, Mocha and  Charcoal. Direct link of these colours  are given below so that you can check them out. I love these colours because they are so vibrant and beautiful!!


4. I built up the colours again  and  again until I was satisfied with the results.
5. To make  the cave, I used a mini canvas as base. I cut a piece of paper to make the depth of the cave and used some papers to make rocks.  I simply rolled the paper to give it the shape of rocks.


6. I painted the cave with Mocha, Charcoal and Llime Colour Splash.
7. Now it's time for assembling all things and get it into shape... I have used some stones  and sand to give my project a natural look.
8. I pasted a pieces of fabric to make a natural looking river. For that I pasted a piece of hard paper underneath the fabric to make it stiff and puffed....all that adds to the dimension/ 3D look and help you get more realistic effects!


9. I used Lime color splash to color some cheese cloth because I wanted to use them as grass and moss. Added some flowers, chipboard shapes and animal cutouts here and there as a final touch.
So here are some more close up pictures..........
















I hope to have inspired you and will be very happy if you try out something like this. Keep watching this space because its a great way to learn and enjoy crafting!!
Thank you so much... don't forget to come back for my next post

Every one can try mix media

Hello everyone Pooja here,
I am back again with a mixed media project which is for my DT project for itsy bitsy. Many people ask me what are the basic products necessary for mixed media and what they should buy to make mixed media projects.  I would like to mention that there are no specific products required for mixed media but I have decided to make a mixed media piece that requires very less products and mediums. You can take a look and get inspired to try out one on these lines....

Now lets have a look how I made mine.
1. First of all you will require pieces of MDF or card stock and tags or some sort of paper that's hard.

2. Paste them as you wish on the card stock. You can see in the picture below how I have pasted them. After that, I applied Mont Marte gesso over them.

3. Now it's time to add some texture to the project.  I took some Mont Marte modelling paste on my spatula and started tapping it on some areas as you can see. Its an extremely easy way to get some beautiful textures.

4. Thereafter, I used a leaf stencil from the store to add some more interest to the project with Mont Marte modelling paste.
 
5. It looked like this after above steps were done.

6. I then used some more tags to create layers on top.  I pasted them as I liked on the base.

7. I mixed some small stones and sand with Mont Marte gel medium and applied this mixture wherever I liked.

8. I created one more board with burlap sheet and card stock pieces and wrapped around some thread and lace. I wanted to paste this at the back of my main project to give it more layer.

9. I used some old things which I had like an old candle stand, a round piece of thick material, an old brush, some beads and an old rakhi. I arranged them on the tags to give some extra texture and for adding some extra beauty. I did some cone work on the round piece with ceramic puffy paint. These cones from the store are perfect for creating different textures. You can use them in many ways to create beautiful designs.  After that I used black gesso over it and did some more stencil work using the script stencil.

Now it looked like this

10. It was now time for adding some colors. I used Gold Alcohol Splash- Midnight Blue for the base. I like these colors because of their glossy finish and great coverage!

After it was dry I did some dry brush shading with different metallic paints like Prussian blue, Teal blast, Mint and Brick Red.  You can see direct links of the colors I have used in the list of supplies used.
you can see how the layering of different colors  pop up the things and the background in step by step pics

Rustic vantage look layout

Hello friends Pooja here at Itsy Bitsy's blog to share some crafty time with you. I usually  like to make mixed media projects and this time I tried my hands  on  a layout. I will show you how easily you can create a rustic look. This especially works out well for those who are not too confident about their colouring. The trick is, you just need to give a distressed appeal to your background using your inks.

Have a look


To make this, I have chosen a blue paper from Little Birdie's Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack.

Applied  Mont Marte gel medium gloss to make the paper a little flexible

Next, I tore the paper at places as shown in above picture.
Left 1/2" from all the sides and using a cutter made slits. Then, applied some gel medium or water and used a cutter to distress the slits. You can see what it looked like in the above pic.
I
Now comes the interesting part where I have used a score board to draw some lines randomly as shown in above picture.

After that, I have applied pigment ink from Itsy Bitsy with a light hand on the embossed links and added more colours - Burgundy Versa craft ink and Encore metallic copper. I kept building up the background with colours again and again until I got the desired look. Patience is the key while you build up the background with layers of colors!

I have mixed modelling paste with Sailing Sky Chalk Paint and then used a stencil to make a pattern.

Now that the  base colours and the stencil work was done, I pasted a dark brown card stock at the back. Take a closer look and you will be able to see it in the above picture.
Now it was time to arrange all the embellishments. I have used 3D chipboard frame, arrow chipboard, flowers, Fairy Dust and some beads for decoration.

I have coloured the chipboard with chalk paint and then given a dry brush touch up with  brown acrylic. Next I applied gesso randomly. I coloured all the chipboard shapes using the same technique.
I have chosen rustic zinnias form the wide range of handmade flowers available in the store. Finally, I arranged  all my embellishments and glued them where I wanted them to be and did some highlighting.

For highlighting I have used Fairy Dust Copper and Hearty Melange Golden. I  mixed them with gel medium created some lines with copper Fairy dust. After that I have used both the shiny products for highlighting the embellishments all over. At the end I spread gesso all over and also used some green metallic colours for a little touch-up on the chipboard shapes and flowers.

Finally did some stamping with Little Birdie stamps.






Hope you liked my project. See you soon!! Till then craft more and enjoy more....
