I wanted the cards to be simple & cute. I painted the chipboard piece using White gesso paint with Prima pigment powder ( Teal) and Lindy's embossing powder for extra shine. I finished my design by adding glitter pearl gums. 
I used blue fern studio paper for this card, On this card, I used water coloring (using Camlin brush pen) on this images... Lovely Birds, beautiful flowers and cute little girl...... It is so much fun to me...

Wishing you lots of inspiration!

Water coloring card

Hi everyone… 
Today I tried watercolor background technique…  I created this card for the Lindys Stamp gang color challenge.
The card base is natural color Card stock, coloring start with white water-coloring paper, then I took some Lindy's sprays, watered it down a touch, then tapped my paintbrush over some watercolour card to give a sprinkled effect…and dry it with heat gun 
I used Bobunny stamp too.... for background design
Here are some detailed pictures

For my background I chose 3 x colours
Happy Watercolouring everyone! 
thanks for popping round


Altered embroidery hoop as a card

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I just thought I'd share my latest 3D decor art 
One more altered embroidery hoop.....:-) 

I made using the Blue fern studio Frolic collection!. and I always love to use the pretty wood embellishments, I immediately thought of the clock frame to embellish this inside hoop with net cloth, then I added some blossoms on the transparent clock design that goes on top of the front piece. Here is a photo of the first two pieces... 

I took this pic of me and my hubby when we were up at my brother's engagement, just before we went out to hall   

You can find step by step photos 

Here i make it as a card style or open and shut .....something like, so i added one metal embellishment "door butt hings" into the hoop.

5 inch diameter clock

Used 1mm chipboard piece for outer ring(2nd page) of hoop

Here is the design

I also used Crafters workshop stencils to add some texture and design to the corner of my background paper.  

I loved the soft pink with the touches of gold 

some more close ups

I had so much fun...you guys know how much I love Embroidery hoop! I know I still need more
Keep up with all the crafty goodness by following me ;-)

Altered box as frame stand

Hi there everyone! It's Suzna here.
Today i proudly announce my Guest DT appearance at Lulupu-The craft laounge for their February challenge. I created this project for "heart and arrow February challenge".
I thought it might be fun to decorate something that could be recycled. We all search at craft stores and shopping mall for things to alter and decorate, but why not decorate something laying around the house? Here's an old small Tommy's box for a wallet. This would be a perfect photo frame stand.
Sometimes Mixed Media can be a little intimidating, If your new it might be overwhelming and you may have questions like: Where to begin, what comes first, painting stamping or texture paste? Of course there are no rules, but in this quick tutorial, I'll show you my process for beginning and how to layer elements like a pro!

  • First of all you will need a metal box, it is my hubby’s wallet box, lengthy screw and 2 pringle chips base part 

  •  Add 4 chipboard round piece for strength. 

  • Make a hole for a stand.

  • This is what am planning for

  • I added a floral wire to get thickness
  • After applying Black Gesso

  • Separately decorate, base part and frame part


  • Then again, Prime the surface with a coat of black gesso. Allow to dry, after that apply a coat of prima clear crackle. Once it completely dry (keep it for 4 hour) apply Prima white sand texture paste randomly.  
  • Add your embellishments with a strong adhesive... here I used Tracky Glue and glue gun. Allow to dry completely. Now we need to a coat everything with black gesso, and white gesso with dry brush. Gesso is to be able to spray them with mists.

  • Apply white sand paste on top portion, it will show nice texture on frame

  • Start spraying on box with Golden doubloons colors of Lindys Stamp Gang spray randomly over the tin.  
  • After adding photo I added flowers, golden heat embossed heart die-cut and painted gate die-cut chippies 

  • Apply Inka Gold to finish and highlight everything, it make everything pop. I use my finger for better control. 
  • Ranger’s Glossy Accent product gives 3-dimensional effect, it can be used to create wonderful effects on craft projects. This medium dries to a hard, clear, shiny, and resistant finish.

  • For the finishing touch used prima glass glitter with mode podge.

These are the things I used: Gesso, paints, clear crackle, white sand, inka gold, tracky glue and all kind of treasures to add. I got my hands dirty and I loved every minute of it.

Look at all of the Gold Glass Glitter & and golden embossing on love frame. I really love all of the textures on this box. It really looks like the butterfly is bursting with gold sparkles. The photo doesn't do it justice.
Here are some close ups

I am sharing my another altered art project by using tuna tin, bottle caps and beads click here Mixed-media-on-tuna-tin.

I hope you enjoyed the step by step photo and are inspired to
 create your own Mixed Media frame art from recycled packaging!
