Decoupage pendants- Feat BobnBetty pattern papers (A Tutorial)

Heya folks,

When I posted the tutorial for decoupage quilled jhumka, I was surely looking at ways that I can substitute the decoupage napkins usage with some other material which was easily available. Decoupage napkins with a perfect pattern is difficult to come by sometimes. So here's a solution.

You can use pattern paper. Yup, You heard me right!!!
With slight modifications to the previous tutorial. 
Here's a video tutorial featuring bobnbetty pattern papers.

I have already shared the tutorial to make the jhumka so wanted to share the procedure to make the pendants as well!!!

Here's the Final result!!! The tutorial is simple to follow I hope. Do leave me your valuable feedback!!!

Here are some more trials with bobnbetty pattern paper. This particular one uses  Tim holtz distress paints and distress inks!!!

I am sooooper happy with this variant!!!

  Here's the tutorial link!!!!

List of supplies
1) Quilling strips 5mm- Itsy bitsy
2) Pattern paper- BobNbetty
3) Camel Gesso- Itsy Bitsy
4)Decoupage gloss glue by artzone- Itsy bitsy
5) Jewelry findings- Various sources

Hope the tutorial helps

Mixed media monogram: A trial with new colours

Heya folks...

This month over at ICR we have a new coasteride for you. Play with floral elements but this time around ICR says no to CARDS..... Hence stay floral & play anything but CARD.... 
Here's the story board for this coasteride!!!

Here's what I made:
 I have the whole set of Viva decor Inka gold pastes which I use frequently for my projects. But I do have some unused colours and some combinations I havent tried still in my platter...
So here's one creation where I have used the viva decor inka gold pastes and a colour combo that I havent tried before for my mixed media monograms!!!
