First I took primed MDF bookstyle box or you can prime the box using white light gesso. Once gesso is dry using sand paper lightly sand the box and cleaning nicely with dry cloth.


Took stencil secure it on box using tape ,stenciled it using texture paste in side of box. Let it dry completely.


On top of box I applied thick layer of texture paste and stamp randomly using wooden blocks and to create texture randomly dab on using my finger. Left the box overnight to dry completely.



Once texture paste completely dry applied flesh tint acrylic colour allover the box.


Later mixed turquoise blue with Decoart antiquing medium applied all over box and while it is wet use a cloth or wet tissue rub over to remove excess colour.


Repeated above step with burnt sienna and antiquing medium.

Love- Photo Frame by DT Mounika

Hello everyone,

I am Mounika and I am so happy to be on Rainbow Craftykari Blog with my Inspiration Post.


Everyone loves to treasure memories in a special way, and if those memories are with our kids they are all the more special! To treasure such special memories with my son who will turn 3 this August, I  made this frame.



To begin with, using Papericious black gesso I primed the frame. I then traced down the shape of the frame on a piece of pattern papers and cut it. I have used the Aazealian paper stack from Papericious's latest collection. I then stuck down the pattern paper and cut down the extras. To add some texture I used a bubble stencil with texture paste. Once it was dry I took small pattern papers and roughly arranged them. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I glued everything down. For the embellishments, I used a chipboard heart coloured using blue and yellow chalk paint. On the yellow hearts, I added glitter.



The main focal flower was made using Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and then shaped, the "love" sentiment embellishment was coloured using Prima Art Alchemy waxes. I used the same on the frame as well to highlight the texture at places. 


Here are some close ups:

DIY Dreamcatcher by DT Mounika


Hello Everyone, 


I am Mounika and am here today with my very first post as a DT member for Rainbow Craftykari. It is such an honour to be on the blog and I have a tutorial for you all. 

Here is what I made ... A Dreamcatcher, to catch the dreams as they flow by :)


Let's begin making the dream catcher


1. Gather all the materials mentioned in the supply list below. 

                                         
                                 

2. Take a smaller embroidery hoop and stretch a fabric in it, for the base. 


                       

3.Using a brick stencil create a background with texture paste, allow it to dry. 


                         

4. Now take a larger hoop and stretch a lace fabric. We will use this as our main base. I  applied glue on the sides to keep the lace fabric intact and not move.  


                        

5. Now go back to the smaller hoop which would have dried. Using Lindy's Sprays add colour to the brick background and dry it using a heat tool.


                       


                       

6. Next, take a sheet of white card stock and cut out multiple leaves, shape and colour them using different shades of distress inks. Attach a  thick cotton thread at the back of the leaves and add some beads into each leaf thread. 


                       

7. To make hangings for the dreamcatcher, I have cut down 1.5" strips of lace fabric on long side and then tied them to the larger hoop along with the leaves. 




                                    

8.For the sentiment, I have used an MDF embellishment.  To colour it, I first sprayed orange photo colour, once dry I added blue and yellow colours with dry stroke technique.


                                              

                                   

9. Finally, it's time to assemble everything. Using a glue gun, attach the smaller hoop onto the larger one, and then added flowers, some feathers, butterfly and the MDF sentiment and any other embellishments. Tadaaa..your dream catcher is ready!


Here are some detailed shots of my dream catcher:

Goodbyes and Uncovering RCS DT Team Day 1

Hello Everyone,


Our old term has come to an end which means it's the beginning of a new one. Goodbyes are always hard, especially to a talented team of crafters. However, change is the only thing constant in the world.


Thank you to all our Design Team and Guest Design Team Members who created some amazing projects and provided readers with some great tutorials. You will all be missed.


Welcome to our new team!


Today we will reveal four members of our new team and tomorrow we will be back with the rest.

Without further delay let's introduce our DT Members-


First up


Ishani


Hello everyone, I am Ishani! Since childhood, I have loved getting my hands smeared with glue and colours. But, the studies as a student and then establishing myself at work, didn't leave me much time to pursue a hobby. Around two years ago, I learnt Quilling which helped me cope with daily stressors.  Subsequently, I started making cards by incorporating quilled elements and gifting them to friends. With the internet full of ideas and inspiration, I ventured into using stamps and colouring with different supplies to make cards. I love to learn and experiment new techniques, my recent obsession being handlettering. From being just a hobby, card making has become a passion for me. The way I was inspired by other's work, I hope my work inspires a few too.


Here's a link to her blog- https://quillish.blogspot.in/
And below are a few of her works






Next, let's welcome back


Kriti Mishra


I am Kriti Mishra from Hyderabad, India. I have done Masters in Information Technology, and was an Astt. Prof. at a reputed engineering college. I left my job after my daughter, Akshada, was born, she is 4.5 years old and now I am a full-time mother. She allows me to do some creative work and I can see a good artist in her also. Right from my childhood, I am into crafting, and I always loved making handmade cards. I am more into Scrapbooking and making mini albums(but now exploring Mixed - media and Flower making) and love to use different kinds of pattern papers and embellishments to enhance my creativity and to share some knowledge with other people around. Previously, I used to make simple handmade cards, just to gift them to my loved ones and friends, but when I joined social media, there I saw a huge world of crafting.

And here are some of her works





Next, we have,

Shylaa Shree



I am Shylaashree from India, very happy to be on the Rainbow Craftykari Design team. I live with a beautiful family in a small industrial town in Tamilnadu.Crafting has always been part of my life, however, having a busy family it's confined to late at night when I steal a few hours to myself. Quilling is how it all began in the blog land in the name of Adhiraacreations and it was a turning point in my craft life from where I started into cardmaking, scrapbooking, alter items, 3D projects, fashion & paper jewellery & etc., I don't think I have a particular style, as it has evolved with time.Thank you Maninder for the opportunity. Look forward to the wonderful journey with Rainbow Craftykari team.

Hi, I am Mounika from Bangalore, India. I am into handmade things since my childhood. I got into making hand-made gifts for my family and friends. After I got married, I was introduced to paper crafting in Bangalore. I then began my journey in scrapbooks, mixed media, cards and so on.
