Anthology Beyond the Page Kavitha Wooden Flourishes

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

Beyond the Page Card Making Layouts Misty Mountains

Pantone Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet Projects

March 14, 2018

If your favourite colour is a shade of purple, than this is your year according to the Pantone Colour of the Year!  So what is this Pantone Colour of the Year all about?  If you pop on over to Pantone’s Website you will read all about the reasons behind why they have a Colour of the Year.

Pantone Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet

“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”

The Design Team were asked to create a project inspired by the Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet.  The Team used the new Misty Mountains Collection because it has so many lovely shades of purple running through the designs in this collection.

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.

Letters To Santa Mabel Sim NEW Product Tutorials

Santa Claus Says Merry Christmas! by Mabel Sim

September 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a tutorial with the new Letters to Santa Collection to create a simple Christmas themed frame that is so apt for your Christmas display.

I first start with a 8×8 inches shadow box which I prepped it with an even coat of white gesso. You can also use any white acrylic paint/white opaque paint to replace gesso if you do not own one.

In the meantime, while waiting for the gesso to dry, cut down P2388 Christmas Poinsettia as a base.

I had also fussy cut out my centrepiece for today with P2395 Be Merry. I trimmed out the circle sentiment and mount it on foam tapes to give it some dimension.

Layering is always the key to make your project looks sophisticated. It is actually a very simple technique of arranging your pieces together on different heights. For this time round, I am making use of the rim of the shadowbox to show different layers. I had fussy cut out Mr. Santa from P2389 Dear Santa and stuck it to the bottom corner of my frame.

To balance out the opposite end, I am also adhering pieces from the CT890 Collectables as well as from P2393 Holly & Berries, followed by Christmas streamers from SS347 Sticker Sheet.

Adding pulled cheese cloth will also add some additional interest to the project.

Simply cut down the cheese cloth to tiny bits and tug it gently for the strings to break apart from its usual placement, adhere them to the bottom of your flowers.

Here’s the final look and some close up pictures. :)

Others: Shadow Box, White Gesso, Cheese Cloth

 

That’s all for my tutorial. Simple ain’t it?
