Ganesha Diwali Home Decor Piece Tutorial by GDT Vinita Jain

Hello Everyone!

Happy October!

This is a month of the festive season and Diwali is my most favorite festival, so there is no question about what I love to create with the Mixed Media projects!

You can surprise your guests and visitor this Diwali with your own handmade creation, no need to buy from the market now!

Today I want to show you my new MM project on coming festive occasion
And to inspire for this month challenge "Lights & Celebrations".



And here it goes.............!!!!!!

I converted a piece of plywood into a magical wall decor art. I coated it with Plaster of Paris with the textured look.




Give a new life to Lord Ganesha by using any kind of pearl colors.





Happy with the results using Fevicryl Pearl colors, Terracotta and Old gold Inka Gold!




Now time to create a background scene for Lord Ganesha.


Using air dry clay and a mould I made some embellishments to decorate and let it dry them for a full day.





Now given a coat of gesso to all of them. Don't worry about some cracks because they are very delicate, it will hide with some embellishments:) Fixed metal holders to hang the decor piece.



Applied fevicol and sealant to paste them all.




Die cut lots of different flowers and leaves out of Iris paper, perfect for flower making using Iris sheet.



Soak the flowers and leaves in the water bowl for a minute and inked them using distress inks.



Shaped them using golf groove tool and embossing pad as shown in the pic, perfect for textures and details.






Now time to create the background. Misted the piece with different color splashes. Firstly I started with turquoise color mist bottle at all 4 corners with the height of 4 or 4.5" gap. Then misted with midnight blue, not on the middle part because I wanted the Ganesha to highlighted in sunbursts color effect! Then misted with dirty pink near the pillars. After that misted with chalk ultramarine and golden canary. You will easily achieve the same results as shown in the pic.


Now rubbed all the white part using old gold and turquoise Inka gold to highlight the detailing work as shown in the pic. And applied a little bit at the surface and chippies too!


Here are some close-ups for the detailing work:



Rub some Inka gold on the metal charm OM word. Paste it on the tea holder and embellished it with some gemstones.



Now embellished the whole piece with my own handmade flowers and few rhinestones, gems. See the details in close-ups clearly!





And covered the backside with the corrugated sheet attached a heart-shaped border at the bottom.

Here is the finished project and ready to hang on the wall. I am really happy that this time I will decorate my Pooja place with my own wall decor piece!!! 😊





Isn't it gorgeous at all!!!

Blossom Mixed Media Tag by DT Kriti Mishra

Namaste Friends!!

I am Kriti...back again with an inspiration post for the current challenge
Here is the moodboard of the challenge ( Use minimum of any 3 elements from the board)



Here's what I made




I have selected three colours from the mood board....Yellow, green and brown.
Yellow colour signifies joy, happiness, intellect and energy.
Green colour signifies growth, harmony, freshness and fertility.
Brown colour signifies stability, structure and support.
So, that's why I have selected these colours from the vibrant mood board.

For this tag I have cut three tags from the cardstock.
Yellow- 3.75" x 6.25"
Brown- 3.50" x 6"
Green- 3.25" x 5.75"

Adhered them together one onto the other, after that I mixed the yellow acrylic paint with the texture paste and tapped with the palette knife after that I mixed green acrylic paint with the texture paste and again tapped with the palette knife to give some interesting textures to the surface.
 Put some embellishments like brick chipboard( coloured with brown acrylic paint), gauge, flowers and buds.


Now to add more interest to this, I have added few art stones mixed with gel medium, after drying applied some gesso and then coloured it with brown colour.

In the last I had splattered all the three colours with the help of brush and stamped the sentiment.

Here are few close- ups of the tag
