Mixed Media Tag

Namaste Friends!!

I am Kriti...back again with an inspiration post for the current challenge...
Here is the moodboard of the challenge ( Use minimum of any 3 elements from the board)

Here's what I made

I have selected three colours from the mood board....Yellow, green and brown.
Yellow colour signifies joy, happiness, intellect and energy.
Green colour signifies growth, harmony, freshness and fertility.
Brown colour signifies stability, structure and support.
So, that's why I have selected these colours from the vibrant mood board.

For this tag I have cut three tags from the cardstock.
Yellow- 3.75" x 6.25"
Brown- 3.50" x 6"
Green- 3.25" x 5.75"

Adhered them together one onto the other, after that I mixed the yellow acrylic paint with the texture paste and tapped with the palette knife after that I mixed green acrylic paint with the texture paste and again tapped with the palette knife to give some interesting textures to the surface.
 Put some embellishments like brick chipboard( coloured with brown acrylic paint), gauge, flowers and buds.
Now to add more interest to this, I have added few art stones mixed with gel medium, after drying applied some gesso and then coloured it with brown colour.

In the last I had splattered all the three colours with the help of brush and stamped the sentiment.

Here are few close- ups of the tag

"This is my Dream" Layout -- DT Project for Rainbow Craftykari

Namaste Friends!!

 I am Kriti from India...I am back with a new project and this is an inspiration post...A layout with some bright colours..."This is my dream"....A dream can cause hope...This is a dream of a wish to come true...only hope we have.
The lines which I have used is from a song....these lines focus on the motivation and hope we get while dreaming.

And here's the project
 Some close-ups

A Brief for the layout

 1 To start with, I have taken a wooden plank (Size is 10" x 8"), and affix few chipboard rectangular pieces on the right hand side to make a wall and gauge on the left hand side. Then covered the entire surface with gesso.

2. Next I have used a bubble stencil to make background more interesting using modelling paste, and covered the entire surface with gesso again.

3. Next I have added this beautiful Dreamcatcher chipboard, and few beads and again covered the surface with gesso.
4. After that used spray colours i.e., yellow, orange and red(Spray some water too to let them run).
5. Used gold, copper and black colour to highlight the textures.
6. Used few stamps, text, brick and music notations to make it more interesting.
7. Lastly embellished it with some coloured gauge, flowers, and a beautiful song lyrics.

Linking this project to August 2017 Main Challenge HARMONY & SONG LYRICS
Incorporated the word HARMONY in my project and used the song "THIS IS MY DREAM".

A mixed media wall art by DT Kriti Mishra

Namaste everyone!!

I am Kriti Mishra and I am very excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari design team, and this is my first post. Heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and entire Rainbow Crafykari team for this opportunity. Today, I have come up with a tutorial post.
I have made a mixed media wall art. A sneak peak

Tutorial for this

1. Firstly take a watercolour paper, cover it with clear gesso and dry it with the heat gun.

2. After that take a regular tissue paper, crush it between your hands and tear it in small pieces. Now paste these small pieces over the paper (in random manner) to make the first layer of texture, and prime it with white heavy gesso(apply gesso with spatula to make more interesting extra texture). Now randomly add some thread to add more texture and cover it with  gesso, after that dry it with heat gun.

3. Spray some water on the surface and spray the colours. Movement will happen and stop spraying when you get the desired shade.

4. After that use any background stamp( I have used bubble stamp) to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open spaces.

5. Now embellish it in any way you like ( I embellish it with some burlap string, flowers, glass beads and with some sequins). Add lastly adorn it with a beautiful quote or a sentiment(I distressed the edges with distress ink). And its all done.

Shabby chic card with handmade flowers

Namaste Everyone!!

It's Kriti here sharing a mixed Media card with some handmade flowers. This is an inspiration post for our ongoing challenge Blooms Magic at Rainbow Craftykari blog. I made this card after getting inspiration from a quote "  Life holds special magic for those who dare to dream". A Sneak peak

I have used Fairyland collection from Papericious. These papers are gorgeous with lots of flowers, fairies, butterflies and few sheets of die- cuts and sentiments.

I took an ivory cardstock of size 6" x 4.5 ". Then took two beautiful contrast papers from the pack, distressed the edges and layered onto the cardstock. After that fussy cut some butterflies, leaves, flower and a fairy. Also put a sentiment from the sheet matching the theme of the card.

 Now the best part, I made some handmade flowers also to embellish the card. Have a look...

I have a tutorial for you all for these simple yet elegant flowers.

Tutorial for Flower

1.Cut a circle from a paper. starting at the outside edge, cut a spiral towards the centre. Slightly zig- zag the edges will create a more natural looking flower.

2. Beginning from the outside, tightly wrap the paper, rolling towards the centre.

3. Next release the coil so that it will grow.

4. When you get to the end, you will have a little round part.Put a little glue on it and press to adhere the coiled paper. Aren't these paper roses are cute.

 I made these to embellish my card but they can be used for so many things! Also cut two leaves with Prima dies to make these flowers a complete look.

Here is the final card

Some close-ups

 I hope you like my card...will meet you all soon with a new project
