Altered Shoe Box



Hi Friends, hope you all are doing well. 
This time I have altered a shoe box and used burlap sheets instead of pattern paper to cover it. 
These gorgeous burlap sheets are from Itsy Bitsy Shabby Chic Burlap Stack. 






   
This is the side view...Just used these metal charms and rhinestones.



Top view of the box with some embellishments...die cuts, chipboards, tags, butterflies and bakers twine. All these craft goodies are also from Itsy Bitsy store and are gifts from my brother. It feels so good when we crafters receive gifts also in form of craft stuff!



Close view of my handmade hibiscus flower, made from Heart felt creations Tropical hibiscus set. Added some shimmer dust and micro beads to it.

Hope you all liked it! Do share!

Thanks for visiting!
Have a Great day!

Sea themed Photo frame

Hello Friends,

I am back with my another project which is a photo frame made on sea theme...







I started with a MDF photoframe, bought from a local craft store. Applied strokes of gesso everywhere on it to add some texture and then painted it in different shades of acrylic paints, ultra mine blue, prussian blue, pearl green. Next using circle stencils and white gel pen added some bubbles to my sea...


Ship, light house, floating bottle, dolphin are 3D stickers bought from local craft store. I loved them so much that I brought home 3 sets to use on my future projects. Then added few more elements like sea shells, stones, chipboard coloured in green and white net.
  

On the upper part I just wrapped some bakers twine after colouring it too in shades of brown and black using distress inks. Loved the different look achieved with twine. Some stamping in black archival ink and I was done..

Hope you all liked my photo frame :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Great day!

Bottle Garden


Hello Friends, Today I have a colorful project to share giving a fresh nature feeling! 
It's a bottle box in garden theme made with an empty water bottle. These plastic bottles are lying at everybody's house and I just thought of using it in some way. Had no idea what I'll do on this but then start working with chalk acrylic paints. This is my first time I am using chalk paints and I was excited to use them on a plastic bottle! 



Here I have used matt chalk paint "sailing sky" shade from Itsy Bitsy store. Firstly I prepared the bottle with a coat of gesso then gave it a coat of chalk paint followed by some strokes of black acrylic paint. Then added some script design using stencil and texture paste. 






Next step was to embellish it with all flora & fauna.....I used heat embossed chipboards, flowers, leaves, pollen, beads, metal dragon fly. For the lid I thought of using natural twine and I think it really matched well with other embellishments. And did you noticed my tiny rabbit (chipboard) sitting near the bushes and enjoying greenery! I have used color splash in lime green shade to add that green touch. Some more color splash on my flowers...

Birdie chipboard was perfect on the top! 



Back side of my bottle....



So here is my bottle with what I started...I have separated the upper portion and my lid is made of chipboard and twine.





I hope you all liked my bottle garden. Do share with me, I love to read what you say :)
Thank you so much for visiting!
Have a great day!

"Singing B'Day rhymes" - Birthday Card with Dies and Punches


Birthday Card with Dies and Punches
Hi Friends, I am sharing a Birthday Card today and this is my first creation with stamps and dies from Heartfelt creations...I was so excited to use them! Apart from this I have used another die from Marianne designs and my craft punch to create the border.
I just love the outcome using all these together in my one card


My handmade flowers made with Sunrise lily set...



I used my color pencils to add colors to this beautiful stamped scene. Stamp set is from Heartfelt creations "Fiddle Frog".
Happy Birthday die cut is from X Cut by Do crafts.

I have also added some shimmer dust to my flowers..


Here I have used a piece of vellum with gold designs on it, it was taken from a wedding invite. 
Then created the border using my craft punch and added it to the bottom of my card. I was happy because this vellum was thick enough to hold my card!


I hope you like my card! Do share with me :)
Thanks for visiting and Have a Great Day!!

Photo Frame - Masculine Theme

Hello Friends!

I am back with my second project on Masculine theme, it's a photo frame created for the ICR Challenge

Masculine Theme Photo Frame


It's a MDF base, I have covered it with pattern paper from Papericious "The Vintage Attire" collection. Then inked few areas in orange and brown shades and added some stamping. 


Added some texture paste in white. Tiny heart and the design in black on the top are rub on stickers from Itsy Bitsy. Finally used my Happy Birthday chipboard here, which was lying in my stash since a long time, after inking it in shades of brown & black applied glossy accents to add some glossy dimension to it.


This watch chipboard and sparkle dots are also from Itsy Bitsy. I added some gesso to the chipboard and then painted it with acrylics. Adhered some vegetable netting at the back to add some more texture. Tiny book and sea shell are dimensional stickers.



I hope you like my vintagy project :) Let me know what you think..
