Alterd Frame(craftyscrapers)

Hello My Crafty Friends...

It's me Arpita on the blog today,so today im sharing a project which i made using a technique that is new to me,tried this stamping technique for the very first time.Hope you enjoy the project and be inspired to try it too.I have an Alterd frame to share with you ,its always fun to give a new life to an old product.

 So here is what i made.....


Step 1
 have primed the surface with 2 coats of white gesso and have covered the inside with a masking tape so i need not be worried about getting the paint on the photo area.
Have spread white crackle paint randomly using the pallete knife.


Step 2
This is the fun part,i prepared some stamped images to make some elements for my frame.choose this flowery stamp have used a black dye ink to stamp my images.To make the mirror image of this flower I stamped the image on to the mirror stamp set from craftyscrappers and then placed a card stock over the mirror stamp and slowly pressed down and the image was transferred  and i had a mirror image,this was a super fun technique.



Step 3
U see the mirror image is light,i am no expert in stamping..so please excuse me and i wasnt too worried i just used a black marker pen to darken the lines.Then colored these images using some color pencils and fussy cut them.


Step 4
Now it is time to color my frame,i have used Dreamy orangepeel,Sweet-tea rose,creamy banana Chalk paints and Lushy orchid shimmer spray from Craftyscrapper to colour.
I have diluted these chalk paints with little water and kept adding layers of thiese colors,drying them inbetween each layer of paint. till i was happy with the shades.
And finally added a flower , fussy cut elements ,thread.to add some interest have used some pollens and  Briadal dress shaker elements from craftyscrappers and I was done with my frame.

MM Layout Dream ( Craftyscrappers)

Hello My Crafty Friends.....

Its me ,Arpita on the Craftyscrappers blog today. I am sharing with you all a very easy and a beautiful Mixed Media layout.I recieved this gorgeous stamp set from Craftyscrappers and I have used this stamp today to make my focal point.The link to buy this stamp set is mentioned below.

So here is what I made.......



step 1

My first step was to make my focal points. I stamped the image on white cardstock using archival inks and coloured the image using water color pencils and then fussy cut my image and I was done with first face.For the second i decoupaged a newspaper on a white cardstock and then stamped the image using archival ink again and then fussy cut the image and my main element of the project were ready.


I took a few scraps of paper that i thought would go with the color palette i had in mind and distessed the edges with a distressing tool  and composed them around my focal point to give it some depth.


I have raandomly stamped  using black archival ink keeping in mind the way i wanted the composition of this layout.next I diluted some yellow chalk paint and spread it with a brush .Stamped some leaf images and heat embossed it using violet pearl embossing powder.

To add more layers to the project I spread some Tickled shimmer paste from craftscrappers using a palette knife.

I also addded some mega and mini art stones ,mixed it with some 3d gloss gel and a drop of orange spray to give it some color,at this point i felt it needed something more so i used the same yellow chalk paint to do some stenciling around the composition and at the corner.

Finally I added  a chipboard sentiment ,some die cut leaves.a piece of  thread a flower,some splatter with black paint and tada...my project was complete.
