Bee Shabby


I was quite excited when I heard this lovely call for BeeShabby...though the terms are tough I have been admiring the posts on social media and have been following here.  I have very less take on shabby chich as I have limited access for stuff......hence I rarely have done more projects on shabby chich......else I would have created more work too.  I love your papers very much and have truly been waiting for a chance. 

I sincerely believe that where you have will there is a way and I'm passionate about whatI create and do. I have been scrapbooking since 2yrs and have constantly been engaged in creativity and mixed media has been my interest. I have been creating altered art, scrapbook layout.....mixed media projects and have fairly had rewards for my works.

Memories in a Frame!!

Hello Ladies.......

I'm back with our new month's challenge for Words & Paintery blog and we have a lovely color palatte to play along this month and do hop on the blog post for some lovely inspiration by our talented bunch of DT Gals. 

I have used a normal frame which I was hording for quite sometime now and these lovely colors made me work on the frame which was a real treat couldnt miss this.... lovely hues of grey nd blue with a white!! 

Well.......I have gessoed the frame and added all the needed embelishments like a negative chippie was adhered, resin flowers, resin corners, artstones, Timholtz distress clear crackle,rose pollens, fussy cut flowers n butterflies were adhered, a big feather chippie from ItsyBitsy - Little birdie was also gessoed and adhered,  CCB (Corps Canvas Board) glimmer mist sprays- Vintage blue Terra cotta were used here, oval metal charm frame and tiny hearts were adhered with heavy matt gel, Dusty Attic Memories - Ticket was heat set with Lindys - Clearly clear EP, Tilt a wheel teal EP, Black forest Black were heat set and dont forget to miss out the marble effect on the ticket. (Im in love with this new technique)!! Finally everything was dry brushed with white gesso. Loved the crackle effect on the frame too!!!

Smiling Buddha!!

Hello Ladies.......

I'm back with another work with a peaceful smiling Buddha. I hope you all like this.......worked on this project to highlight more textures....colorplay....3-dimensional effect.....and also avery bright project to share with you all. This is a fully loaded pic page ......with lots of details for you guys. 

I have worked on a MDF window frame from TECS for this project. Lovely stuff from this store for your projects. I have used many Little Birdie products from ItsyBitsy store...with their newly launched texture pastes-Grainy Paste was given for the base work, later added more mixed media stones with some acrylic gel and have adhered it across the frame. Stuck some brick chipboard cutouts for wall effect, added moss, few ivy flourish chippies were heat embossed with Lindys EP - Drop Dead gorgeous green, Fiddle head fern green,Clearly clear EP, Lindy's sprays - Tibetan Poppy Teal, Bachelor Button Blue, added fairies from Creative embelishments which were also heat set with Lindys EP - Midnight Sapphire. I have added Little birdie - Embossing paste- avacado smoothie and have heat set it for more texture and to give a flowery effect on the grass, added flowers, leaves, fussy cut butterflies, melange from Little Birdie again, Prima Unicorn Spark for dry brushing, Prima Metallic Wax for the focal image which highlighted the face of Buddha, added Finnabair - rust effect paste - Red for rusty effects on metal holders and for final touches dry brushed with white gesso.

Sharing with 

I was drawn by the moodboard with rusty effects, the face figurines, bottles....and I have incorporated all the elements in the moodboard and have created this piece.

I loved the textures in the moodboard the sky, the flowers, the relaxation feel in the moodboard and Buddha is one such image which gives us all the inner peace at one glace of his smiling face and hence I created this piece with all the details in it

I have used the wooden window frame and highlighted Buddha as focal image of memory and the peace he brings in to each individual. So thought to capture this memorable face into one frame and shared this with this month's challenge.

Hope you guys like this little share of mine and do leave some love!!




Vintage - Lady in Mirror

Hello Ladies.....

We have entered into another month and to begin with I wanted to share my work for Rhedd's Creative Spirit  Blog.

I have used an old cracked wooden plank which I did a photo transfer technique - I used Itsy Bitsy - Little Birdie PhotoTransfer liquid and used it on the focal image which I printed, also covered the focal image with modpodge once the image was transfered so that I could  work on colors. Later covered the wooden plank entirely with crackle paste and sprayed with Lindy's Magical Shakers - Gunten Tag and Time Travel Teal, Cathedral Pines - Green, Grab a guy gold. I added Prima moulds and art stones which were in my stash and dry brushed with white gesso and gave the entire plank a vintage feel. Few close up shots

Hope you guys join us with your creations for the month. Yes we accept work which is altered and given a new life. So join for the month and share some art along...........waiting for you guys.
