Mixed Media Wooden Piece by DT Priya

Hello Crafty Folks,

A very good morning to all of you.I'm back with a Picture Tutorial for a Mixed media Wooden Piece. Here I have explained how I have made this piece totally out of scrap. Except for colouring and glueing you don't need any supplies to make this kind of a project.
Here is what I made....


So let's Start...

Step 1:
I had this wooden plank which is about 2.5 feet in length. You can take any base be it wooden or canvas, Procedure will be the same. I used some masking tape on corners and sides to fill the uneven parts. Also attached a hook at the back so that I can hang it on my wall.

Step 2:

I gave it a coat of white gesso.


Here you can see the things I have used on the base to create textures. Some negative of chippies, Gauze cloth, Twine, some nails, buttons, tissue paper, pista shells, broken pencils, tags, broken toys etc.


I cut and glued the negative chippies on the base as shown in the picture below and also tied some twine on desired spaces.

Step 4: 

Then I arranged some gauze around the chippies and adhered some corrugated sheet here and there and also attached lace at few places.

Step 5:

Then I arranged tissue rolls, some chipboards, metal charms, tags, broken pencils and other embellishments using 3d matte gel.

Here are some close-ups of the arrangements in case you are interested.

Step 6: 

Then I gave a coat of white gesso on it after all things dried up. Also used a light coat of Decoart crackle texture paste here and there.

As you can see I arranged some broken jewellery pieces on it to add more textures and finally added a butterfly chipboard to give some height.

Step 7:

Then I started colouring this after it is fully dried. Firstly I gave a coat of Chalk paint Sailing sky and Mint green Patina Paste. Then I started dry brushing with Rust and Brass Patina paste mixed together. Also rubbed blue patina paste here and there for the effect.

Supplies Used:

Wooden PlankPapericious White gessoFinnabair Patina Effect Paste ( Mint Green, Blue, Rust, Brass)
Deco Art Crackle Paste

Rangers 3D Matte Gel

Acrylic paint Rust

Papericious ChipBoards

Corrugated sheets

Onsie Album Tutorial by DT Priyanka

Hola People!

Hope you are doing good! Today I am over at the RCS blog with another Tutorial. This time I am going to share with you a step by step instruction for making a "ONESIE ALBUM". This album is cuteness overloaded in every way & you can never get enough of looking at it..

Here is the glimpse of this adorable album..

Step-by-step on making a Onesie Album:

1. Preparing the Base: You can print out a Onesie shape on a printer sheet & cut it out to make the stencil or if you own a silhouette cameo you can also use that to cut out the base. My dimensions are 6.5"x4.5"
(Note: if you wish you can also choose to draw freehand)

(onesie shape stencil I cut out using my silhouette and cut out the rest using this) 

(traced the stencil on the rest of the sheets)

(cut out the traced onesies)


2. Choosing the right Patterned Paper: You can choose to pick any neutral colour or go with the traditional Pinks or blues for the onesie album. Here I have taken a neutral colour pp.Trace the design with a slightly smaller dimension from the base size as this will be adhered onto the base sheet to create an edge. For these I have taken the size 6.3"*4.3" (this varies a little as when we are making a software file of this sometimes it doesn't compress to the exact size on the curves and edges)
I forgot to take the picture of the traced & cut patterned papers)

(patterned papers)


3. Adhere the patterned papers onto the base (front & back) and punch on the top to put the binding rings/ribbon

(patterned papers adhered front and back on the base)

4.The base is now absolutely ready...!!

5.Embellish it!- This is the most fun part, you can add about almost anything to make these cuties look more beautiful.. resins, charms, sentiments, flowers, ribbons, notes, pictures and what not..!!
I have kept my embellishment on a lighter side you can add more if you wish.. :)

Voila!! Its R-E-A-D-Y!
Isn't it looking absolutely adorable...

  • Yellow Cardstock
  • Patterned paper
