Follow your dream | Mixed media canvas

Hi Friends
Sharing with you a mixed media canvas. This is inspired from the lovely mixed media of my dear bloggy friend Yvonne. I am marveled by the ease with which she executes such amazing mixed media project..long way to go for me. Happy with the result for now, would love to hear how you liked it.

For this canvas,
First I applied some lovely bits of tissue paper with gesso.

Then I stenciled with modeling paste to create the lovely damask texture on the canvas. It was a single border stencil, which i repeated multiple times to get the texture on entire canvas.
Then I applied some brown acrylic paint on the border, to distress the edges. Embellished with the bicycle, Eiffel tower, and Merilyn Monroe. Used a beautiful frame for her.

Though the  embellishment matched, but I did not feel a cohesive look in the canvas. Did some stamping on the edges to add more depth to the canvas. Created the bunting from vegetable mesh and old magazine paper. Applied pink glitter in the frame and flowers. Did some more stamping and used rub ons.
I thought this is the final one now.

But then an idea stuck ! I colored the frame black with a white board marker and my focal point :)
Applied modge podge. Also used distress glitter and white mica flakes sent to me by Yvonne to complete the finishing :)

Krishna Janmashtmi layout for a friend

Hi Friends,

Sharing with you a layout which me and my friend made, the highlight being her Son dressed as Krishna. In India most infants would be dressed up as little Krishna and Radha during the festival of Janmastmi.

In this layout we tried to capture the essence of Krishna, by depicting his flute, his favourite peacock and the naughty little krishna who enjoyed eating butter from the overhead hanging earthen vessels, which he and his friends would break with a stone and then relish the fresh home made butter!

Sending this to : - Inspired by the colors!

Warli envelops made by dear sister + Tutorial (Ceramic cone work)

Hey, got to share some beautiful hand painted envelops, my dear sister Jyoti made, before her my priced possession ;)

So here comes tutorial, I would like to tell you all how these beautiful envelops are decorated using ceramic(again this is how my sister taught me :))..

Material required:
Ceramic powder
DDL (similar to fevicol)
Plastic bags (the milk bags wud be ideal, you can use some other thick plastic also)
Cello tape/rubber band

I mixed Ceramic powder and DDL (its a form of fevicol) to get a mehendi or hina like consistency(little thcker than hina, coz it might spread). Then made a plastic cone and put it in that. All ready to can make any number of designs with this cone. If you want colors, you can mix fabric or poster colors in the ceramic and DDL mix..
