Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are doing good.

This is Nikkita Today. Crafters, what do you do to preserve your memories, like we often click photographs, get them framed or make an album. How about making your on scrapbook album to give a handmade touch to your beautiful memories. Today I'm going to inspire you with a Vintage Mini album, so that all you can try easily and gift to your loved ones or preserve memories of your life.
Here we go


Step 1 - Take 2 pieces of chipboard measuring 6 by 6 inches for the base and for the spine take 2.5 by 6 inches. Cover it like book using cardstock and tacky tape.

Step 2 - For the closure take two ribbons and stick them in the middle and cover the whole chipboard using cardstock.

Step 3 - For the pages I used hidden hinge binding system and I have left a gap of 1/2'' between every hinge.

Made 6 pages total,

Page size measures 5.75 by 5.75''

Made 6 pockets measuring 5.5 by 5.5''.

Step 4 - Cut pattern paper as per your choice and distress it with distress ink vintage photo to give a complete look.

I use tacky tape/tacky glue for sticking my pattern paper.

Step 5 - To Decorate Cover, i simply used a Leather paper which is locally available in my near stationery store, I adhered MDF Cut Out, Die cuts, Mulberry Flowers and Resin Charm to give an Vintage look. 

Step 6: Decorate the inside pages as per your choice.  

Tip: When you'll adhere MDF cutout, let it sit for few time to get it adhere with base strongly. I've used Aleene's Tacky Glue

Mini Mixed Media Canvas By Guest DT Roshini

Hello Everyone,

Roshini here from roshinis crafts. A very warm welcome in this cool winter here at Rainbow Craftykari. I am so glad and happy to be in this platform as Guest designer. My heartfelt thanks to Maninder Kaur and the team. I have a mini mixed media canvas to share with you today.

It turned out as I expected and I hope any mixed media lover will adore it.

Here is few simple steps how I made it… 

Size of canvas is 6 by 4 inches, I used white sand texture paste from Prima marketing and some cotton thread placed randomly on it. This is how I created my texture background.

Here comes the hero of the project, Guess what?? Used and almost squeezed Colgate tooth paste tube, added some flowers and MDF scrolls at the top right corner.

I used Prima marketing heavy body gel to hold the embellishments, resin frame, wings, etc. Then gave a coat of heavy black gesso from Prima marketing.

Now comes the magic of colouring with my all time favourite Lindy's stamp gang sprays. Here I used Button blue, Rizzo's rowdy red and Sandradee sepia. At last I dry brushed with Inka gold-old gold.

And finally I added the bulb from Prima marketing with the word Inspire on it. (My inspiration post here and no doubt I was inspired by my Colgate tooth paste.)

I hope you liked my mixed media canvas.
