Altered MDF Box by DT Priyanka Thukral

Hello Everyone, :)


I am at Rainbow Craftykari Blog today to share my very first inspiration post as the DT member for Rainbow Craftykari. I am Elated..!! and I hope to stand up to the expectations laid down on me.


Today I have an Altered MDF wooden box to share as a part of my inspiration project.
Altered MDF projects have been my favorites since forever & no wonder I begin my term with one of these.

 

Here is the complete picture of my project



For this project, I picked up a hexagonal MDF box (another current favourite of mine.. :P ) I began with painting the base with gesso which works as a primer (tip: Gesso creates a coat on the base of the wooden material that holds the paint otherwise the wood absorbs the colour).


Next, I painted the box with blue acrylic colour. I chose coordinating patterned papers from Eno Greetings paper pack, cut them to the desired size & distressed them on the edges. For the cover, I cut the paper from one end to the centre point & rolled the two sides on the opposite sides.

On the exposed part of the base, I added glitter using stickles in the coordinating colour & a word tile over it. On the other part, I added a resin oval frame & sequins in the middle of it & adorned it with the resin flowers & bows.
On the sides, I again used stickles in the same colour to give an embossed look (I love how they look like tiny droplets resting on the edge) & added rhinestones to lift up the whole look.

and tada..!! the box is done... :)

The box is perfect to gift a watch to someone or keep it on your dresser as a jewellery box, can be used in multipurpose ways.

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.

DIY Gifts for a friend by DT Ishani

Hello Everyone,

Today I am here on the blog with my first post in this new term. My post is an inspiration for our August challenge, which you can find here.

August is the month for celebrating friendship and so I planned to put some love and make something for my best friend.

To tell her how I cherish our sweet friendship, I decided to make a card for her and a pair of quilled earrings.



I chose to do some hand lettering for the quote on friendship, as the sentiment for the card. For the design, I chose to build a wreath, around the quote. A wreath is circular and symbolic of eternity and I wish our friendship also lasts forever." The quilling done here is not very traditional, I thought of experimenting with different coils and was happy with the texture it gave to the flowers. After arranging my quilled elements for the wreath, it was stuck on a black card base.







I made a pair of quilled quirky earrings for her. The shape here is also a circle, symbolising our everlasting friendship. I chose the violet, indigo, blue and minty green 3mm strips to make this pair.






Hope you were inspired and would join us in our ongoing challenge.

Supplies used:

(a) For the quilled card:-

  • Neenah Classic Crest White cardstock
  • Black cardstock
  • Pentel brush pen (black)
  • 3mm Quilling strips (assorted colours)

(b) For the earrings:-

  • 3mm Quilling strips (assorted colours)
  • Ear hook findings
  • Mod podge matte (as sealant)

Friendship Layout by DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,

 

I'm Priya Mishra and am very excited to share my first DT inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog. I have created a project as an inspiration for our Rainbow Friendship Challenge.
 

Here's what I made...





The theme is absolutely wonderful and I wanted to make something CAS this time. This has been my weakness and I struggle to leave white space with pastel shades. So this was a challenge I took up!

The base is a 12"*12" white cardstock. As the theme is Friendship, I took the photo and the sentiment from google and printed them. For my layout, I began by brushing multi medium onto the whole paper. This creates a very good base. Then, I created texture using a stencil (Bubbles all over) and texture paste. Next, I began adding colour. I used Distress Inks and a brush to spread the colours. I have incorporated all the colours of Rainbow. The chippies are from Papericious and are brushed with a thick coat of white gesso. After arranging the photo and sentiment on the base I added some butterflies, flowers and a few sequins. I layered a doily under the photo mat. I finished it by sprinkling a few drops of colours with a brush.Here are a few close ups of the layout
















Supplies Used:

  • 12"*12" White Cardstock 200gsm
  • Rangers Multi Medium Matte
  • Stamploration "Bubbles All over" Stencil
  • Papericious Chipboard Heart Mesh
  • Papericious Sequins Mixed Bag 
  • Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Pink Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feather, Mowed lawn, Mustard seed, Cracked Pistachio)
  • Doily
  • 3D Butterfly Stickers
  • Flowers
  • Photo and sentiment from Google Images


Almost all the above-mentioned products are available at Rainbow Craftykari Store or you can pre-order by sending email at rainbowcraftykari@gmail.com
Hope my project inspires you. Do participate in the challenge and have fun.Hugs,

Friendship ATC's by Blog Co-ordinator Aditi Mahajan

Hello Everyone,

Aditi here, Hope you're all having a good day! Today we've started our new term and with that our Rainbow Friendship challenge


I'm here with some inspiration for the challenge- Friendship and Rainbow Colours. I have made a set of three ATC Cards. ATC Cards are usually sized 3" x 4" (like a visiting card) and are swapped among the artist/crafting community. At times there are themes decided, based on which the cards are created. 

Here's a look at the cards:



For these cards, I first created a background using distress oxides on textured cardstock. I then used a bubbles stamp with black archival ink. Next, I stamped the girls and coloured with pencils. I then stamped the quotes, cut them out and distressed the edges. I then dug out elements from my stash- hand made flowers die cut flourish, doily, vellum butterfly and some gauge. I arranged them on each of the cards and stuck them down. I then randomly added some black sequins. I completed them by distressing the edges and mounting them on black cardstock. 
 

Here's a look at them closely:

Summer Breeze 3D Pop-up Box Album by DT Aditi Mahajan

Hello Crafters

Aditi here, Today we're at the Rainbow Craftykari Blog with some inspiration for the ongoing challenge.

If you haven't yet checked the challenge, hop on for more info- Blooms Magic

Inspired by the DCWV May Mood board, we've created a 3D Pop-up Box Album on the theme of Summer. Relax and rejuvenate in the gardens and enjoy your vacation.








The flowers have been created using a die and pattern paper. You could also use a flower punch if you have one. Using the pattern paper is simple, as you then don't have to color them and can directly shape them. The centers were filled with some liquid glitter to complete the flowers.







The box which is the album opens up to a flat single sheet and can be used both sides. I've added pockets and tags to the inside of the box.









The other elements on the top, have been stamped, die cut and colored using zig markers. I used the back of the same patterned paper for these elements.

Hope you're inspired!

Materials List

DCWV- Recollections Les Belles Fleur Stack and DIY Mini Album Project Stack (Vellum for the umbrella and pockets)
Heartfelt creations- Tree from Sugar Hollow Hangout; Flowering Dogwood Collection; Fleur Borders and Pockets Die

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.
