Diwali Lamp for Rainbow Craftykari Blog

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I'm at Rainbow Craftykari Blog with my DT inspiration post. This month we are celebrating the festival of lights in this part of the world. We decorate our homes with lights and eat and share sweets and gifts with neighbours, friends and relatives. 
I made a Diwali Lamp this time, which will be the centerpiece for my Diwali Party. 

The materials I used for making this...
I have listed down the products at the end of the post.

For this, I upcycled an empty silver foil tube, some thermocol sheets that came with packaging. First I drew the outline of the lamp on a piece of paper and traced the same on the patterned paper. Then I cut out the unnecessary parts and attached vellum on the window panels. Then I assembled the lamp. 

After the upper part is done, I used a thermocol sheet to make the base of the lamp, so that it can stand properly. I cut it in hexagon shape and attached cardstock on both sides to give it more strength. Then I attached the empty aluminium foil roll into it and covered the whole part with patterned paper. Then for attaching the lamp also I cut a small thermocol sheet and covered it with patterned paper and attached it to the tissue roll. Once the base is dried completely and looked firm, I attached the lamp on it.

Here, You can keep it unattached and adhere a tea light on it also. I'm planning to do that in future.

Then I attached  laces on the borders to make it look more attractive, also attached some flowers which are from the store. Some leaf die cuts here and there and my lamp is ready.

Some more images 

Materials Used:

White Cardstock
Enogreeting Paper Pack
Papericious Lace
Thermocol Sheet
Empty Foil roll
Die cut Leaves
Tacky Glue
Paper Cutter

Happiness- Card for Scrapping4Fun Challenge Blog

Hello Friends,

Today I'm sharing my DT project for Challenge #101 at Scrapping4fun challenges . 

This month the theme is Autumn and I love autumn, it's colors and the beautiful leaves. I'm sure a lot of you must love this season too. I made a card using this beautiful Digi Image from  Cute As A BUtton Stamps And Designs who is also the sponsor for this challenge.

Here's my card. I used autumn colored pattern papers to make some layers under the image. Colored the image with my faber castle color pencils and I loved it. Hope you like it too. I know I'm not good at card making, but it is something I really want to learn and do better. I hand cut some leaves from the same image, colored them and used out side the image. To give them a bit height I used double sided foam tape under the image as well as the leaves.

I used a twine and some pearl stickers and a small tag which I really love.

Hope you like my card. Do participate in the challenge for more fun.

Supplies Used:
White Cardstock
Pattern Paper from Enogreetings
Digistamp From Cute As a Button Stamps
Faber Castle Color Pencils

Celebration/Festival -DT Post for IQCG

Hello Quillers,

A very good morning...
Today I'm sharing my DT project for Indian Quilling Challenge Blog for the month of October. The theme this month is Celebration/Festival. We are celebrating Diwali-The festival of Lights this month in India. So I have created a Quilling God Ganesha whom we worship and a Tea light holder.

I have been dreaming of making a Quilled Ganesha since long and I'm happy that finally I could do this. This is my first try in making the Elephant God and I know there are a lot of mistakes but I really love the outcome. I used 5 mm strips for making the God and 3 mm strips for the tea-light holder.

Take a look...

Hope You like my work. Do play the challenge here

Mixed media Altered Box for Scrappin 4 fun

Hello Friends,

Hope you are doing fine. We were experiencing flood like situation here in Mumbai with heavy rainfall and crazy wind. But people have learnt from the past and didn't take the risk of going out in water which is the best part. The school holidays extended that means no time for crafting and just playing whole day with my kiddo...

Amidst all this I take out time late at night to play with my scraps and today I am here with one of my already favorite altered art for Scrapping4funchallenges Blog. IThis is my first DT post for the challenge blog and I'm very excited to join the talented team.The theme this month is "Different Techniques" so I chose a Cell Phone box to alter and I used Stenciling, layering, Inking, dry brushing in the project.

For my box, I gave a coat of gesso then a scripture stencil. I used corrugated sheet, jute cord, art stones, net and chippies to create texture. 
I altered this box.

For coloring I used spray inks and chalk paint. I did dry brushing with gesso once I was satisfied with the coloring part.I used sea shells, Flowers, a metal clock, few pearls and beads here and there for embellishment. I did the same for the sides of the box as well some stenciling and paints.
for the bottom part, I only colored that after giving a coat of gesso. Some more pics ...
