Guest Designer MCS Feb LE Kit

Mixed Media Layout"Exhale Doubt"

Hi Friends..

So I am continuing to create for My Creative Scrapbook Feb LE kit, featuring products from Prima Marketing "Poetic Rose" Collection, Creative Embellishments and more.

I created a Mixed Media Layout using this gorgeous kit and other supplies.
The papers in this collection are just so beautiful with mesmerising floral and scripted designs.
It was difficult to choose one for my LO.

Here I created lots of layers, keeping all those pretty flowers as the main embellishing elements. I also used some die cut leaves that I have coloured with Finnabair's Acrylic paint in "Plum Preserve".

For the background, I played with Lindy's Moonshadow mist in "Moonlight Mulberry".. loved the shade totally. Over the spray splatters, I created some texture with stencil and "plum preserve", followed by stamping with one of aall & create stamp set #10.

I love the moulds by Redesign with Prima, and now keeping a few shapes handy to be used in any project. Here I used "Holly Brook" design, and added a touch of Finnabair's wax in "old silver".
I added some wooden bits with the cluster, for some natural feel. 
More closer pics.

Hope you enjoyed the post and got inspired!!

February Inspiration "Follow your Heart" for 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Canvas

"Follow Your Heart"

Hello my Friends..

Back with my February inspiration on 2Crafty blog, I have created a Mixed Media Rusty Canvas and used some fabulous steampunk chippies from 2Crafty.

As I love creating mixed media backgrounds, here too I did a lot of work to get the
 textures out, using different mediums which you can see in the step by step tutorial video below.

I have worked on my chippies with Finnabair's Rust Pastes in Camouflage to compliment
 the rusty background. Also, I added highlights with the wax in rich copper, which
 gave a quick contrast to the pieces.

Check the close ups.. grab a cuppa and enjoy the process video :)

Guest Designer MCS February LE kit

Mixed Media Canvas
"i love us" 

Hello my dears..

Today I am glad to share my project as Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook Feb LE kit. The kits by MCS, I must say, are gorgeous and full of exciting stuff.
The February LE kit primarily consists of the beautiful "Poetic Rose" collection by Prima Marketing and more stuff from Heidi swap and creative embellishments.
It is all just so gorgeous!!

My first project using this kit is a canvas, where I have used loads of floral ephemera, papers and flowers from Poetic rose. 

The colors in this collection are so soft and delicate. It actually makes you feel poetic when you look at those lovely papers. 
Everything is pretty and very feminine, so I decided to feature a picture of me and my daughter with this design. It was so awesome to create layers with those floral ephemera, including a collection of beautiful transparent ones too. And what to say about Prima flowers.. they are always so elegant.
Some close ups..

Hope you got inspired!!

February Inspiration for MTW Challenge

Mixed Media Layout
"Let it snow"

Hello my dear friends..
It's time for February Challenge over at More Than Words and here I am with my inspiration project. This month's word inspiration is "Always" and creative challenge is your favorite quote.

The word ALWAYS inspired me to create a winter layout. Like the seasons ALWAYS change, take a lesson from them and be ready for the changes in life and challenges thereon.. like the quote on my page says, “be open to whatever comes next.. let it snow”

For this layout I chose to be monochromatic for the first time and quite happy with the results.
I started off with a layer of heavy white gesso over the working area in the middle. Then I mixed texture powder with Fabrika decoru magic paint in "black", for the stencil pattern.

Then I added color with distress spray stain in "Hickory smoke" and let it spread with water.
Once the background is done and dry, I added some embossed stamping (product list at the end of the post). I also added some more random stamping with black archival ink. I love using background stamps in most of my projects. Finally added some color splatters.

Next I started with the collage. I used 2Crafty chippie pannel covered with white gesso, as the first thing to be put, followed by other paper and flower elements around the photo. 
I embossed my die cut leaves with Lindy's EP in "Midnight Bronze" (same used for background).
I sprayed my flowers with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in "Abominable snowman", which has a beautiful shine.

Once happy with the arrangement of all the elements and embellishments, I added loads of art stone and distress glitter in "pumice stone". I also added some white nuvo drops here and there.
Finally finished off with more splatters and stamping.
