Happy B'day Maa- MIxed Media layout!!!

Heya folks,

Hope everyone is having a crafty week.

Today I am sharing a project that was completed in 3 hours to meet a deadline to surprise a important person in everyone's life. Yup!!! MOMMY

Mother's love is unlimited and never fades.
This order came in when a colleague of mine wanted to surprise her mum for her B'day. She asked me if could make something and I obviously couldn't say no to an opportunity to bring smile on her mum's face. So I was given a rough sketch as to what she was looking for. But yes one constraint was the time, I had to deliver this in 2 days time.
I worked on this project for maybe 3 hrs from scratch spread across 2 days and I am so happy with the outcome.
So a small walk-through of the project:
I started out with a 12X12 inch cardstock and primed it with gesso. I started next with adding in texture using modelling paste and stencils, also used various lindy's stamp gang sprays to color in the background. Printed and stacked the sentiment on carboard and used double sided tape to give it dimension. Space for a 6x4 inch photo was provided by a black photo mat measuring 6.25x4.25 inches which was again popped up with double sided tape for added dimension. Typographical quilling was done with gold edge quilling strips from Itsy Bitsy.Also added in a lot of Little Birdie Crafts flowers from Itsy bitsy to finish up the project.

Ganesha Nameplque!!!

Heya folks,

Here's my signature style nameplaque yet again, but yeah time improves a lot of things and more I work on crafty projects the more I improve.


Story behind this project:This nameplaque was made for a lovely couple who were moving into their new house and wanted something unique to display their identity. They wanted it to be colorful (Pinks and blues), wanted Ganesha to be done with some elements of shimmer and shine and also wanted it to be glass framed so used a chipboard base as left a 1 inch rim around to accommodate the box frame. 


So I first made the base for the Ganesha using Shimmer Vellum sheet and paper cutting with shading using distress inks. Quilling techniques were used to finish the Ganesha. To add in the shimmer and shine components used self adhesive pearl chains, fake diamond stones, Viva decor Inka gold pastes and metal embellishments.This assembly was later added onto the left corner of the chipboard.


Next I moved onto the chipboard space where the names were to be written. The base was prepared with Gesso and mixed media techniques were used to complete the final background of the same. The names were then outlined and filled in with quilling techniques. Various paper,flowers from Itsy bitsy, 
metal, resin embellishments were added in to bring the project together. Accents of Viva decor INka gold pastes was also added to elements. The whole project was then given coats of diluted decoupage gloss glue.
