Altered Wall Art Tutorial By DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,

Priya here today with a detailed pictorial tutorial for a Mixed media Wall art. Mixed media is always fun and I enjoy a lot creating different textures and I'm showing how to get different textures on your project here today with simple little things from your stash.

Take a look at the final outcome:



Let's start the tutorial:

Step:1 I altered a square shaped MDF board, which actually was a cake base. You can take any size of a board. Here's the base:


Step 2: I gave a thick coat of white heavy gesso on the base. Once it was dry I gave another coat.



Step 3: Next, I created some texture.Here you can see, on the lower part of the board, I glued some crumpled tissue paper and also attached lace.



Step 4: At this point, I created some texture with the help of a stencil on the left side. As you can see my son also helped me in this.



For quick drying, I used the heat tool.



Step 5: Then, on the right side of the lace on upper part, I applied some texture paste and tried some random texture using my quilling comb.



A dotted tool for some more texture here and there.



Step 6: After drying, I started adding embellishments randomly. I added flowers, chipboards, resin and metal embellishments and glued them all with a glue gun.





Step 7: Then I added a few Big and small pearls, Art stones and sprinkled seed beads.


Step 8: Then I started adding colours. Here I used acrylic colours. I mixed Pink and yellow colours to get this colour and at the lower side I added black pearl acrylic colour.



This is how it looked when finished. This photo was taken at night after I finished, so the picture isn't very clear.


Here are a few close ups of the project.

  • MDF Board/ Chipboard

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:

Mixed Media Wall Art Tutorial by DT Kriti Mishra


Namaste everyone!!


I am Kriti Mishra and I am very excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari design team, and this is my first post. Heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and entire Rainbow Crafykari team for this opportunity. 

Today, I am here with a tutorial post. I have made a mixed media wall art and here's a sneak peak





Let's begin


1. Firstly take a watercolor paper, cover it with clear gesso and dry it with the heat gun.




2. After that take a regular tissue paper, crush it between your hands and tear it in small pieces. Now paste these small pieces over the paper (in a random manner) to make the first layer of texture, and prime it with white heavy gesso (apply gesso with a spatula to create an interesting texture). Now randomly add some thread to further create texture and cover it with gesso. Completely dry it with a heat gun.




3. Spray some water on the surface and spray the colours. Let them move around and blend. Stop when you get the desired shade.



4. After that use any background stamp ( I have used bubble stamp) to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open spaces.



5. Now embellish it in any way you like ( I embellished it with some burlap string, flowers, glass beads and sequins). Lastly, adorn it with a beautiful quote or a sentiment (I distressed the edges with distress ink). And its all done.
