Quilled stenciled jhumka variant!!!

Heya folks!!!

I always love to try out new techniques and when the trials give you results that you expected, you are totally floored!!!

So here's unveiling the new variant in quilled jhumkas- The Quilled Stenciled Jhumka variant!!!

So when I was on a long break.. I think those 7 months saw the Indian craft industry bloom with a lot of Indian manufacturers which makes me really proud..


I did buy a lot of craft supplies from various online stores. One of them were Made in India stencils by Indian manufactures CrafTangles... I did buy a lot of their stencils. 

So here's featuring their floral pattern stencil for a new variant in quilled jhumkas- The Quilled Stenciled Jhumkas. This was the first trial. Tried multiple techniques to get the impression on the jhumka and finally nailed it. 

Totally happy with the way these turned out. Happy to share them as well. Do leave me your comments on this one.. will surely try to incorporate more designing in the future ones but this is surely a start from something new.. So here it is 🤓 





Thanks for stopping by :)

Lots of love,

Nameplaque with stenciled background!!!

Heya folks!!!

Hope everyone is doing fine!!!

So here's another name-plaque customized as per customers needs. 
For the background I didn't want to leave it plain white so use Craftreat stencil Fluorish to cover up the whole background. The texture and the interest the added to the background is quite subtle and stands out. 
The quilling part for the letters uses the crushed beehive technique. 
To accentuate the letter used Viva Decor Inka gold- Gold and silver pastes. 
The blue flowers are made using Itsy Bitsy vellum quilling strips. The translucency of the flowers add to the grandeur. The stems are made using the spiralling technique. And the flowers also have a touch of inka gold.








Hope this has inspired you :)

The evolution of heat embossed jhumkas!!!

Heya folks...

I have been on an extended break for preparing for my MDS exams. Its good to be back to crafting.

Ever since I went into making paper jewelry I always wanted to do something different rather follow the herd. I have always been the inquesitive type who loves to venture into areas where others haven't and trust me I just love it when all the trials give you a product that you can be proud of.

One such product that was created is the Heat embossed jhumkas. It has evolved from the simple flower that was embossed on the quilled dome to a complicated pattern to a pattern where one can add in colours to the embossed areas.

This post is dedicated to that very evolution!!!

1) The simple flowers- Used Avery Elle cupcake stampset flowers here!!!


2) The elegant fronds- Just rite stamp used here!!! You can read more about it here!!




3) The multicoloured flowers- Used Mudra stamps- linen bloom stampset for the outline of flowers!!! Read more here!!!





Thankyou for stopping by :)

A quirky pair of shoes feat. Bobnbetty papers!!!

Heya
Pratyusha here with a super quirky project this time, after all its made from the latest minion themed papers released by Bob n Betty 🙂
The moment I layed my eyes on these, I knew I wanted to make a wearable pair of shoes. I wear shoes most of the time to college as well so had an extra pair, which I haven’t used at all. So decided that this time I should make Minion Inspired shoes for myself.
The procedure is as follows:
1) I primed the canvas shoe with a coat of gesso.
2) Gave a base coat of Cadmium Yellow.
3) From the paper pack I cut out minions in different sizes and use decoupage matt glue to glue them to the sides of the canvas shoe.
4) For the tongue of the canvas shoe I cut out the pattern from the paper pack with blue background and yellow polka dots. I didn’t have to do much work here as the papers themselves have a lot of depth. I pasted the pattern again using decoupage matt glue.
5) Once everything was dry used Ochre yellow to put in some highlights.
6) Added black paint to accentuate the design and let everything dry overnight.
7) Gave a coat of water based varnish and let it dry
And tadaa…my own pair of decoupaged Minion shoes is ready to flaunt!!! I already wore it to a small party 🙂
Quite a quirky pair I would say!!!
Love

My first ever Mini album Feat. Bobnbetty papers

Heya Lovelies,
Pratyusha here, with a brand new project with Bob n Betty’s Valentine release “No One But You”. Well, these papers are so apt for scrapbooking that I too finally jumped in that zone. Being a first-timer, I didn’t have to struggle much as the papers do half of your job, they are so complete in themselves that you hardly need to use stamps or stencils to give volume to your layouts.
Now comes the tricky part, the album construction….phew..!
This album measures 4x6inches. As I am entirely new to the album making, I wanted to try out something very basic.
The outer cover is made from red cardstock of 220gsm. I layered elements from the diecut sheet (included in the collection). Used a chipboard frame that was heat embossed to match the red cardstock to add some sparkle!!!
The inner pages are pretty much simple. I made 8 pages in total. Few pages have pockets that could hold tags which were again cut from the die cut sheet in No one but you collection.
I added the papers as desired and chipboard elements to brighten up the scene!!
I am sure to develop more skills in album making in future to bring in more zing to this aspect 🙂
Much Love
Pratyusha

Butterfly earrings with a recycle twist!!!

Heya Friends!!
Well, this time I’ve created a pair of earrings using the Bob N Betty Coral cluster paper pack and Red Bull cans!!!
The earrings are lightweight and look elegant.
A small walk through of the steps.
1) I selected a pattern paper of my choice from the Coral Cluster collection. Using my Martha Stewart punch, I punched out the butterflies multiple times.
2) I used the butterfly punch to punch out butterflies from the red bull can as well.
3) Seal the pattern paper butterflies with varnish and let dry.
4) Sandwich one red bull can butterfly (big) punch out between 2 pattern paper butterflies (big) and punch holes in the opposite side of the wings. Take 1 small pattern paper and 1 small red bull can butterfly and shape them accordingly and glue it to the bigger butterflies in the center!!!

5) Once assembled, put in jump rings to connect the butterflies as shown in the pic and add in the findings.

In the similar manner you can make curtain strings or wind chimes too 🙂
Hope you enjoy the project and try it out.
Much Love
Pratyusha
