Recycled box with twist

Hello everyone,
Its Pooja once again! I am here to spend some enjoyable crafting moments with you all. This time I would like to share a recycled project with you which I have made for itsy bitsy blog
As you all know its the festive season once again and that's a good time to showoff your creations too. My creation today was made with a sweet box and I am sure you will find plenty of them at home at this time of the year :) I decoupaged it and decorated it differently.....just wait to look at the twist I gave to this project!
This is my finished project!!

So let's start making....
  1. I have used an empty sweet box and applied gesso to it as primer.

2. Then I used modeling paste to create texture on the front and sides. The modelling paste was applied with Little Birdie's texture triangle tool.

3.After the layers dried, I sanded it to make the surface smooth.
4. After measuring the surface of the box (only the area I wanted to cover) , I took a fabric and cut it out according to the measurements. Made a smooth paste of ceramic powder and glue ( Itsy Bitsy has huge range of different craft glues and you can try them out for making such off-beat projects!) I dipped the fabric completely in the paste.

5. Then I placed the fabric on top of the box and gave it the shape I wanted.

6. Now my base was ready for decoupaging. I pasted tissue paper with mod podge and after it was dry I applied a coat of mod podge on top the tissue as an over laying coat.
7. I have used chalk paints to colour the background. To cover the other left out places in the decoupaged area, I used  some acrylic colours to match the background.

8. In the remaining area of the fabric and the edge of the box, I used brown acrylic paint.
9. At the end I applied some metallic paint with a light hand. Added some resin embellishments from the store, at the corners of my project .
Here are some more pics of the final project.............

Hope you enjoyed it and found it worth a try!!
Thank you so much...waiting for your comments and to see you all try it out for yourself

Mini Forest canvas

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 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!!

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
