Rainbow Mixed Media Canvas by DT Shylaashree

Hello Friends,

I am Shylaa Shree here today to share my first post on my DT assignment with Rainbow Craftykari team.  Here is my inspiration for our current challenge theme "Rainbow Friendship"

I have a made a special artwork on a canvas for my son who celebrates his birthday this month. My daughter insisted me to make something for him.

I started with an A4 size canvas and applied a coat of white gesso to prime it. I then created a background using stencils and modelling paste. I then used my homemade colour sprays to add colour. I randomly spritzed them and moved them around. I then picked my photo, matted it and adhered it to the canvas with foam tape. I chose butterflies to embellish the canvas as my kids love them. I then randomly added 3D Stickles and sequins. I then printed out a saying (you could even use a phrase sticker or a stamp) and added it to the canvas with foam tape. I then used paper varnish to give a final protective coat.

Materials used:

  • Canvas
  • Sakura Modelling Paste 
  • Acrylic Paints 
  • 3d Stickles 
  • Sequins 
  • Tim Holtz stencils. 

Hope you are inspired! I can't wait to see your creative work for our current challenge theme. Link your projects here.

Shabby Chic Card with Handmade Flowers By GDT Kriti

Namaste Everyone!!

It's Kriti here sharing a Mixed Media card with some handmade flowers. This is an inspiration for our ongoing challenge Blooms Magic. 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
