Blossom Mixed Media Tag by DT Kriti Mishra

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

Friendship Layout by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,


I'm Priya Mishra and am very excited to share my first DT inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog. I have created a project as an inspiration for our Rainbow Friendship Challenge.

Here's what I made...

The theme is absolutely wonderful and I wanted to make something CAS this time. This has been my weakness and I struggle to leave white space with pastel shades. So this was a challenge I took up!

The base is a 12"*12" white cardstock. As the theme is Friendship, I took the photo and the sentiment from google and printed them. For my layout, I began by brushing multi medium onto the whole paper. This creates a very good base. Then, I created texture using a stencil (Bubbles all over) and texture paste. Next, I began adding colour. I used Distress Inks and a brush to spread the colours. I have incorporated all the colours of Rainbow. The chippies are from Papericious and are brushed with a thick coat of white gesso. After arranging the photo and sentiment on the base I added some butterflies, flowers and a few sequins. I layered a doily under the photo mat. I finished it by sprinkling a few drops of colours with a brush.Here are a few close ups of the layout

Supplies Used:

  • 12"*12" White Cardstock 200gsm
  • Rangers Multi Medium Matte
  • Stamploration "Bubbles All over" Stencil
  • Papericious Chipboard Heart Mesh
  • Papericious Sequins Mixed Bag 
  • Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Pink Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather, Mowed lawn, Mustard seed, Cracked Pistachio)
  • Doily
  • 3D Butterfly Stickers
  • Flowers
  • Photo and sentiment from Google Images

Almost all the above-mentioned products are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store or you can pre-order by sending email at

Guest DT Pavitra: Magnetic Mixed Media Note Pad

Hello Crafty Friends,

A very Good Morning to you all.

Again we are back with our guest DT in our Teaching Learning Program  and today its Pavitra with her stunning Mixed Media note pad. Everyone think that Mixed Media is hard but Pavitra showed in this  step by step detailed tutorial that how to compose it and get the desired results in Mixed Media.

Over to you Pavitra,

Hello Everyone!

I am Pavitra here, and what a feeling to be on this platform and sharing my work with you guys, thanks you so much Rainbow Craftykari Team for this opportunity .

Today! I am gonna share a mixed media project with you guys.
So let’s get started …..

I had a magnetic sheet which I got with one of the die and was lying as scrap, so I thought of converting the little one into something interesting.

Firstly I sized a canvas sheet to the size of my magnetic sheet and pasted it on top of it with the help of heavy body gel.

Once dried properly I applied a goat of white heavy gesso and again left it to dry, you guys can off course use your heat gun to speed up the process.

After that I stamped the canvas sheet with various stamps using black archival ink, here in you can use any permanent ink and can also experiment with colors to add more interested.

After stamping it’s time to add some texture and for that I used modeling paste with a stencil.  

For coloring my background I used distress sprays, working with them is super easy, quick and fun. I simply sprayed the distress sprays  directly on the surface and then sprayed water with a mister to let the color blend.
I left it to dry naturally and start working on my embellishments.

I used die cuts, stamped images and handmade blooms as an embellishment that off course shows how versatile dies and stamps can be, and how we can multi function with them. I die cut cardstock twice and stick the two pieces with clear glue to give it more strength and colored the edges with archival ink and later applied a coat of clear crackle paste.

Once dried properly I sponged walnut stain on the entire piece for the cracks to become visible, here in I would like to give a advance always leave your crackle paste or paint to dry naturally, never heat set them with your heating tool as you will not get the desired results.

For coloring my blooms I used archival ink red carnation and shaped them with my embossing tools as shown in the picture.

The yellow blooms are colored with archival ink saffron and also embossed the similar way, once I m done with all the blooms the dust them with diamond dust and clear glitter. I also used various leaf cutouts to compliment my blooms.

Finally I arranged my blooms on the magnetic sheet and also tied a twine to add more interest.

ow it’s time for finally assembly, I stamped a cage image and a sentiment with black archival ink and dust them with clear glitter for a shuttle shine.

And here is the finished project ready to be adorned in my room, since its magnetic it can be placed on any metal surface. I thought of writing some positive quotes on the pad and off course blooms are going to add on that only.
Some more close-ups 

Hope you enjoy it!!!
