DIY Tea light holder

DIY Tea light holder 

Hi Friends

I made some Tea light holders with DecoArt Americana Neon Lights paints in Peach Punch,  Radiant Yellow and Pink Explosion 
DIY Tea light holder 

and copper and silver leaf,leafing size and soft flat brushes to apply leaf from Itsy Bitsy .........

I made this topper flower using layers of book papers, doilies and punched circles , the layers were colored using diluted neon colors , scrunched up and fixed with a brad and then a decorative shiny piece of bling , finally brushed a thin layer of leafing size on the edges and added Mont Marte copper leaf .....



I assembled and glued the MDF Tea light holder and added a thin layer of Gesso first and then brushed all the three shades of Neon paints randomly. let dry and brush a very thin layer of Leafing size ( which is a very thin and very tacky glue for adding Metallic leaf to different surfaces) . leave for at least 20-30 minutes and then randomly apply copper and silver leaf  an all sides .........I used the leaf only in certain places and kept a distressed look ........



Isn't it amazing ........






A very Happy Diwali dear friends !!!

Some Positive Affirmations

Hi Friends 
I created some cards for a friend who was in need of  a bit of support and positive affirmations ......


I have made this card with the Copper Luxury stack. It has beautiful double-sided paper in water color patterns and mint and copper foiled designs. I have cut and torn the pattern papers in layers on the card, added some enamel dots to finish .......shape: Rectangle and the sentiment is also from the same stack. 


I have made this 
card  with the Blue China stack from DCWV. It has beautiful double-sided paper and 12x12 die-cut sheets in wonderful designs.

I layered pattern paper and die cut sheets , cut the sentiment from the same stack with an oval die and created an oval frame from gold metallic sheet, added some pearl stickers and flowers to the frame. linking this card to DCWV and  Unstampabelleschallenges-Tic-tac-toeusing flowers , die-cuts , stickers

I am linking these cards to October  DCWV Stack-o-holic Challenge  using the sketch below

Happy Diwali


Add caption
Dear friends
sharing some Diwali cards using stencils and glitter......


I have used DecoArt Clear Modeling paste through the Kaisercraft stencil and then added dry glitter in Pink, teal and blue and then removed the stencil............added a rhinestone in centre. the sentiment is a gold sticker mounted on black card stock, love the dimension of the textured glitter.......



I made another one using the Americana Doily stencil and DecoArt Clear Modeling Paste






  Linking to PaperArtsy  Topic 14: Glitter I was inspired by this post  on the PaperArtsy blog by Raquel Burillo and the faboulous image of glittered lips on the challenge introduction post . 

I am not a great fan of glitter but I enjoyed making these cards and I love how these shades of glitter mixed and make the peacock feather colors, the shine is amazing and the clear modeling paste by DecoArt worked beautifully to create texture and to hold the glitter in place :)

Altered Glass Jar

Altered Glass Jar

Dear friends
sharing an altered jar with you made for the PaperArtsy  Topic 14: Glitter , I used a tissue paper and handmade air dry clay to create texture , then used black gesso and metallic paints , last to be added is dry glitter mixed with satin varnish especially around the textured areas........

I think it would be better to add a gif file so that you can see all around the jar  :) I was inspired by this post  on the PaperArtsy blog by Raquel Burillo and the faboulous image of glittered lips on the challenge introduction post .

I love how the Jar looks like it is made of hammered metal and the glitter settles in all that texture to add shine and colour. hope you all like this :)

Textures and Metallics

Textures and Metallics

Hi Friends 
I painted an old blank canvas pouch today made for PaperArtsy  2017 Topic 13: Metallics and  A Vintage Journey-altered-art. I was inspired by the foiling technique shown on this post on the PaperArtsy blog by Wanda Hentges. Although I didn't have foil but I wanted to replicate that effect so used stencils and modeling paste and die-cuts........

Textures and Metallics
The other side.............. 

Textures and Metallics

I have used decoupage tissue in the background, stenciling and sprays and then added some die-cuts.....

Textures and Metallics

The Goddess Mixed media painting on Paper, 6.5"x9"

Hello Friends

Today on the day of Durga Ashtami, I am sharing a painting in my Art Journal. Durga, the goddess is the woman power present in each one of us and no better day than today to celebrate her.......

The Goddess Mixed media painting on Paper, 6.5"x9"

I have mainly used DecoArt colors and mediums and paint pens here. I primed the page using DecoArt MediaMatte Medium  which along with its many uses works like clear Gesso too !!

Stenciling with White Modeling paste from DecoArt  I created the heart shape with air dry clay, colored and added some glitter, then I added DecoArt Media Liquid Glass

I think this is the first time I have drawn and attempted to paint a face on my own, earlier I tried stencils and image transfers to add beautiful faces on my canvases and other creations. Good or bad I am sharing my journey with all of you, do give me your critical feedback........I do know that Ineed a lot of practice :)
