Keep Faith

Hello Everyone 

Here its the end of Autumn season and start of spring from where i am posting .With the end of autumn , starts spring where new leaves and flowers blossom , same is with life also ,with the end of one thing there is always a beginning of another one so one should always  keep faith.

It's an fairy garden explosion box which measures 6 by 6. For giving it the look of a garden i used various dies from Susan's Garden collection.
Did you noticed the tiny hearts here , isn't gorgeous for getting this effect i first emboss the Soft Finish Cardstock with Heart Strings Embossing Folder and than ink with various distress inks.
For the inside of the box ,i ink the Soft Finish Cardstock with  various distress inks using stage it stencil - Paisley
For making the door here i used the center part of Garden Notes -Carolina Window & Shutters. For the windows trim the same die cut.

Altered Frame -tutorial

Hello my dear friends

Today i have a quick  post to share with you guys. Its an altered photo frame.
You can find out the instructions and supply lists below.

I started by placing the embellishments with heavy body gel. I used a mix of metal , resin and mulberry flowers here. The frame in the center is made with silicon mold and clay. The side embellishment is made using prima mold and air dry clay.
Next i layered lace and gauge here and there. Once everything is dried properly applied a layer of white gesso. Later applied white crackle paste randomly. 

 Once the  cracks appeared sprayed with distress spray , anti linen, vintage photo , peeled paint and walnut stain . For adding more depth applied a coat of art anthropology dimensional paint in shade of green and brown. 

On the flowers i used art alchemy paint  pink blush and metallic fresh orange.
Once everything is dried properly dry brushed white gesso for highlighting the textures.
Finished off by applying art stones and glitter with 3 D gel.





Thank you for stopping bye.
Hope you have fun going through the instructions , see you till next blog.

XOXO
