Mixed Media Bottle #2

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today I'm sharing a mixed media project. I wanted to make something with underwater theme and mixed media, so thought of experimenting on a glass bottle. 
I am still learning mixed media but I love using all scraps and make something new. Here I coated the bottle with heavy white gesso. Then used a stencil to make some texture on it. Crackle paste is something I really love to use on my projects, here also u can see the effect.I wanted to make something other than just a showpiece or a vase... so attached a small photo frame to it. I thought the frame will look a bit small so glued a tag behind it. The tag is also a scrap. It's a price tag which got a coat of heavy gesso on both sides then crackle paste and then the colors made it look really good. I love the entire tag and frame area on the bottle. I used charms, small flowers, gauge cloth and most importantly sea shells to give a sea feeling to my project.

Added few beads to give it some more textured and sparkling look. 

So, Let's take a look...

I hope you like the project.

Hot Air Balloon with Explosion Box

Hi Friends,

I’m very happy to share my project today, which is a Hot air balloon with an explosion box.
Days are getting hotter and we are escaping to the mountains for some time. Before we leave, I wanted to participate in few challenges and complete my craft projects.
For this one, I made my own template (A bit of experiment here; first I made a small one to check if all measurements are fine and it is actually looking like what I want , Then made this).  Wanted to make it in a lighter shade and then I found this paper pack completely matching my thoughts. A lot of fussy cutting and laces, ribbons and pearls to give a shabby chic yet neat look to it. On the top I attached a lace that I stitched in a circular shape and on top of that a flower that goes with the theme. The balloon can be hanged if it is empty.

For the box, I made a circular box inside the exploding box to keep chocolates r small gift, as the theme here is Birthday and tagged it as “A birthday to remember”. All the sides of the box are decorated with hand cut designs out of the paper from same paper pack. I have kept 4 tags to write r to paste pictures (2two under the circular box and two on a side panel).
Here’s the photos…

Hope You liked my project.
Supplies used:
Papericious It’s a Boy Paperpack,
Papericious laces ( On the top, in front and inside the box)
Papericious  Jute cord
Martha Stewart Score Board
Ranger Heat Tool
Glue gun
Precision scissor
Paper cutter
Blue Ribbon
Foam Tape

Altered Project : Shadow Box

Hello Friends,

Today I'm sharing an altered Cardboard Biscuit box into a Shadow box which I made for few challenges. I thought of making a fairy with jungle theme. So I cut out a square from the front of the box and covered it with tissue and some texture paste and gel medium to create some effect on the front. Then added some patterned paper for the background, added some texture paste with stencil on all sides of the box for a brick effect. Added twigs, 3d stickers and a handmade clay fairy sitting on a stone. Colored to give a jungle look.

Here is the box 

And I altered it into a shadow box as below...

Supplies Used:

Pattern Papers from Enogreetings
Chipboards from Papericious
Tim Holtz Brick Stencil
Rangers Gesso
Rangers Texture Paste
Rangers Heat Tool
Dry Twigs
3D stickers
Tissue Paper
Acrylic Colors
Quilling Strips
Glue Gun

Hello Everyone...
I have stacked a lot of stash to alter. I love seeing the things getting glamorous makeovers.
This time I took out a bottle and tried to alter it. 
I am very new to mixed media and this is my very first altered bottle.
So, this is how it looks...

First I gave a coat of gesso on the bottle, then layers of texture paste and crackle paint. Once dried completely I colored the bottle with Pink acrylic color and dry brushed metallic black acrylic paint. Added die cut and metal charm a cycle after coloring them. Added the flowers n leaves and also colored them.
