Pink inspirations

Hi everyone
Priya Satish this side with my new projects for Craftreat.

Project 1: T-Shirt Mandala

As the picture suggests, the mandala was done using Fevicryl Blue 3D outliner. 

Project 2: Round Tag

I have a stepwise tutorial for this
Took the Craftreat Euphoria Paper and cut to a Rond shape. Applied modelling paste through Craftreat Stencil

When the paste is wet, sprinkled glitters all over. 

Added stamps with Watering Can Archival ink. 

Took some Craftreat chiplets.

Took some die cut elements from my stash and applied Art alchemy wax Royal Robes, Lucky Emerald and Mystic Turquoise. 

Layered all the elements

Finally added the quote.

Mixed Media Canvas with Stencils and Chiplets

Hello Friends,

Piyanki here today with a project featuring ways to use your border stencils and create a background and also adding chiplets to your canvas. I have a pictorial view to understand the process better.

I will also add all the products that I used at the end of the blog.

Step 1. I selected these products to use in my project for today. If you notice some of the chiplets may not be see at the end project, I usually keep all elements available so that I can pick and choose what goes best when assembling the layout.

Step 2. Using a texture paste I created my background using a border stencil. I lay the stencil horizontal on the canvas and continued the pattern through out. This way it created a background.

Step 3. Once the texture is dried I started putting rest of the elements. In this step you have to keep trying and placing and see which one looks the best. For me I first choose a theme ( Here it was Time and how our life is attached to time which gives me the sentiment : LIVE ). Then I choose the position which could be center, left, right or from top. Once thats decided I choose the focal element and amplify it.( Here the focal element is the clock as it goes with the theme).

P.S I have used some Prima moulds also here but its completely up to you to choose the elements.

Step 4. I used Soft Gel Medium and Tacky Glue  to adhere all the elements and then gesso it with black gesso . When we are using soft gel we have to give a little more time to dry. 

Step 5. I prefer two coats of black gesso to go to all the nooks and corner

Step 6. Once all dried I dry brushed the entire canvas with metallic paints ( There is no fast rule here that we have to use some specific but any metallic paints should do the wonder. ). At the end of all I prefer to use some Prima wax as it adds some depth to the project.

Step 7: The rule of painting/coloring I choose is ark to light. I try to highlight my focal element with 
some brighter tone and along with the sentiments.

Envelopes using stencils and Chiplets

Hello Everyone , Today I am sharing with you the envelopes I made using the latest released Stencils and super amazing Chiplets by craftreat.
I created three  envelopes using one  Craftreat stencil - Flower Fusion Anemone .

In the first envelope I created  the background using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks with  the stencil. I embellished the envelope with hand made flowers.

In the second envelope I created the background using Texture Paste, with the stencil.

In the  third envelope I created the background using Seedless Preserve Distress Oxide ink, with the stencil.

 Further I created the flowers for embellishing the envelopes withe same stencil with distress oxide inks and on top of it I  applied a layer of Glossy Accent on the  flowers .
Here is the complete look of the envelopes.

I also created a tag using beautiful  Craftreat Layred Stencil - Flower Fusion Sunflower . I kept this tag simple and created the background using distress inks.

In the last I created this envelope and simply pasted beautiful Craftreat Chiplets - modern frames . I heat embossed the frame with Gold Embossing Powder and added the sentiment .

 Please leave a comment and let me know how you liked my creations.
