Are you ready to dive back into card making, Mixed media or any other creation? I know I am!
         So........I was just in the mood for a Mixed Media project and what would be better to start featuring with some Inspirational Quotations for the whole year to decorate your room! I was Guest Designing for https://rainbowcraftykari.blogspot.in/


 How to do:
Here are all 3 panels shown with details!
Firstly. I created my cardboard panel for each quote. One is for the base and one is in window form. I wanted it as a pocket letter style, as you can interchange the quotes or you can add your personal photographs in it easily!


I adhered all the window panels on the base using fevicol. Leave the centre top and inside edges of the window panel unpasted to put the quote panel inside.
Applied Dylusion Paint at the edges with my finger to the window panel and mixed it with white acrylic paint.


Now peel off the upper layer of Decoupage napkin and adhered it on the paper. Be careful while applying decoupage glue to appear any bubbles at the surface. I have applied the different decoupage napkins on all 3 panels.




 Using some stencils and embossing paste I created the BG on all 3 panels, distressed the edges using vintage photo ink to create more depth. Then I applied some Distress crackle clear paint with a brush and let it be dry naturally.


Look at the shine and crackle effects in some close-up pics:







Then I took a natural twig and added a thick wire and wrapped it with double coloured yarn like we did for knitting!


 Take two equal sizes long strip of cardboard. Wrap the brown coloured yarn on equal distance and make a punched hole at the top of the strip and tighten the wire along the hole and twig! Now die cut some flowers and leaf flourishes out of felt.


Die cut a sparrow out of blue coloured felt and stitched it, decorate it with diamond gems and attach the floral wire to create the legs. Adhered the die cut foam nest and the sparrow on the twig.


Adhered all the flowers, handmade flowers and leaf flourishes on the twig. Decorate it with some buttons and attach a tiny bow.


Then I applied Inka gold in different colours on a MDF cut out and decorated the panel with different flowers,  metal floral charm and applied some Inka gold colours on it too! 


On the 2nd panel too, I did some stamping, textures and added a MDF brick cut-outs to create the BG and decorated with some handmade flowers, fillers!


And the last panel is highlighted with loads of textural elements. I added a MDF flourish and embossed it with silver glitter. Attached a resin piece filled with some micro beads and embellished it with flowers, cabochons and some fillers!



Added some beads and pearls at the end! Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!

Winter Wonderland Wreath

Hello to all crafty peeps!

Merry Christmas friends! May your hearts and homes be filled with love, happiness and creativity!!!

                            I am super excited to share my new Winter Wonderland Wreath with you today which I created the first time!
          Some of us have really great intentions to make handcrafted decor to adorn our home. So, to help you out, I'm sharing a wreath idea now! Super easy!


                   I love the blue and silver touch to signify the winter colours.

I can't stop looking at the bottle brush trees which is handmade!
I really love how these foam flowers and garden green leaves complimenting each other.

How I did......

Firstly, I started with a heavy cardboard and cut a big circle and cut it from the centre using my craft knife according to the size of the plastic plate.

Then I wrapped the circle with my yarn which is little shiny and soft.
Continued wrapping the wreath covered with yarn, glued the ends on the back side. At the top too, I covered it with yarn and before covering it I created holes at the top to tie my stone string in between!


I began with my glittered foam flowers. Die cut some snowflakes out of blue glittered foam sheets and embossed it from the plain side using embossing tool.
There is a surprise element.......I die cut a set of 6 petals to create one white foam flower from the part of  Reindeer die.
Then I distressed the edges using distress ink. And I embossed my petals and glued them on a hand cut circle to create the flower, shown in the pic. I made six sets of these flowers.


Isn't it amazing how creatively we can use these little dies !!!!
                                            Let's get started with the plastic plate.
I coloured it with my metallic pearl colours and added different blue glitter dust to create the snow background shown in the pic. Now wrapped the edges with a white yarn and glued it on my circle centre.


Now the fun part begins! Off to create the winter wonderland scene!
I trimmed some shiny white yarn in very small pieces and adhered them at the bottom of the plate using fevicol.  I die cut a cute deer out of polka dotted glitter foam sheet.

This is very easy to create bottle brush trees. Just follow these steps:


a) Start by wrapping yarn around your fingers in different sizes and tie the end. Gently slide the yarn from your fingers and spread out.
b) Cut a piece of wire or you can use toothpick too, according to their heights. And insert in the middle of each yarn pieces.
c) Use your scissors to thread through the loops on each side of the yarn wrap. Cut the loops so that the yarn is fringed on the ends.


d) Trim the yarn in a tree shape. Cut off any excess of wire at the bottom of the tree and placed a stone at the top using glue.
e) Now placed my bottle brush tree on my plate using craft glue. You can create a huge crafty forest display with this easy technique!!!



Now die cut some leaves out of silver coloured glitter foam sheet and glued all the leaves and flowers to create the wreath using my hot glue gun.


In these close-up pics, you can see the diamond glitter dust to create the snow texture on the bottle brush trees.  Die cut a snowman from a white foam sheet and created a designer hat and muffler out of striped glittered foam sheet and adhered it on the snowman. How cute he is looking!!!


Then I added jingle bells string in a silver thread.

I covered the top using yarn and tied a net fabric bow and adhered a jewelled stone in the centre.

At the bottom also I added a string decorated with blings and stone embellishments.


I covered the back too with a paper doily!



Hope you all enjoyed this beautiful wreath!

Here are the supplies I used:

- I used the semi-circle scalloped die for making my foam flowers!

- used cute deer.





Other Supplies used:
Cardboard-400 gsm;  Silver, blue and designer glitter sheets; white foam sheet
Embossing pad and embossing tool
Transparent plastic plate
Fevicryl Pearl metallic colours
Fabrica white colour 3D cone liner
Hot glue gun
Blue, white and mixed colourful blue yarn, fevicol, craft glue, fabric glue; glitters, diamond dust; tooth pick; wire; two-tone coloured string; blings; jewelled stones, net fabric
