Botanical theme altered boxes by Kavitha

June 18, 2018

 

Hello everyone,

Kavitha here today to share my new project using “Anthology ” collection

 

This collection gives such a warm feel with natural color tones and elements that inspired me to make a botanical/nature themed

altered boxes.

 

I mainly used fussy cut elements from the “Ephemera” and “Entomology” papers to create the elements for my boxes.

I have also used some miniature garden theme accessories like bird house,watering can etc.

Few pieces from collectables and Flourishes added the perfect finishing touch to my boxes.

I tried to give a ornate/vintage feel to the boxes using few clay embellishments

I love making miniatures projects,adding tiny details is so much fun (and painful too ;)).Hope

you enjoyed my project,do let me know your views :)

Thank you for stopping by.

Fairy Garden Kavitha Scrapbooking layout Specialty Papers

We make our own fairytale – Layout by Kavitha

March 22, 2018

Hello everyone!! Kavitha with you here today with a new inspiration using beautiful “Fairy garden” collection.This collection is definitely one of my most favorite ever,fairies and gardens are always my favorite subject plus the pastel shades and gorgeous florals makes it even more beautiful.

I decided to make a layout using the gorgeous die cut specialty paper,now it makes everything even more magical,doesn’t it?

I fussy cut lots of flowers,birds and other images  from the paper collection.I wanted them to be in varied dimension,so i cut few papers from the collection into 3 by 4 and 4 by 5 inches size,glue them together with chipboard in between each layers.While i stick them,i just put the glue in the center so that i can easily tuck in the flowers and other embellishments between the layers.

 

I have also used foam dots to the top layer of  flowers,fairies and butterflies for more dimension

The fairies and butterflies are cut from 12*12 specialty paper with glitters,isn’t it so gorgeous?

Beach Shack Kavitha Tuesday Tutorials

Sea side treasures – Tutorial tuesday post by Kavitha

February 13, 2018

Hello everyone!!

Welcome to “Tutorial tuesday” post.Today i made a altered hoop using the “Beach shack” collection.This collection has some

real life beachy images and textures.

First step is to coat the hoop with two layers of heavy white gesso.Once it dried i colored the hoop

with pigment ink pads in shades of green,teal,brown and black.

I just dabbed the colors directly from the ink padNext  apply crackle paste randomly on some areas with palette knife and allow it

to dry completely.Next i cut out a circle using chipboard and adhered the pattern paper to it.Since i am going to use lots

of mediums it will give some strength. To tone down the background pattern i applied a coat of watered down white gesso.

Next i added two more paper layers,just stick the lower half of the paper,tear the upper half in wavy form

and curl it a bit to resemble waves.I coated the whole thing with a layer of clear gesso.Next i applied modelling paste through ripple stencils and colored it using sprays in shades of blue,green

and brown.Now stick the base to the hoop.So here is my finished project,i went a bit on grungy side to resemble the deep sea treasures.

To create texture on the background i used gauze cloth and some teared down laces.All the chipboard designs

are also colored in the same way as the hoop

I added some shells,art stones in different sizes and sequins to add more texture and shine.
