A little about me :- 

I have done Masters in Clinical Psychology and work as a Psychologist and Talent Acquisition Specialist. I am passionate about crafting and have an eclectic crafting style. I have been crafting for over 10 years mainly doing children's craft projects but got seriously into it in December, 2016. I started my blog at the end of 2016. I like to do watercoloring. Working with colors & art mediums is very exciting for me. I mostly make Clean & Simple and Mixed Media Projects. I enjoy making cards, scrapbook layouts, tags, canvases and I also love doing art journalling. Cardmaking is my biggest addiction. I love trying out new designs & compositions. I am a diligent and hard working person who is very active on social media especially facebook, instagram & my blog.

Post 398: Fun with Tags & Cards (DT post for Mudra Craft Stamps)

Hi friends!!

I have a new blog post on the Mudra Craft Stamps Blog today. I tried making flowers for the first time, foam ones at that :) it was so much fun! To visit the blog post, please click HERE.

As you know, Mudra introduced an awesome new product during their January Release- 10 gorgeous new "Chipzeb" Designer Chipboards. These beautiful white chipboards are intricately designed and economical. Would highly recommend you to check them out and try them. 

For today's post, I have shared 2 Mixed Media Tags and 4 cards using lots of gorgeous supplies by Mudra Craft Stamps. 

For the Mixed Media Tags, I have used Mudra's Chipzeb "Simply Tags" Designer Chipboards

Here is some useful information about these tags:

The packet contains 6 chipboard tags of various sizes.
These are about 1.2 mm in thickness & made of sturdy creme color high quality board
They take mediums, colors etc very well. With or without primer i.e. Gesso.
For today's Mixed Media Tags, I applied a thick layer of white Gesso, added texture with Modelling paste and used sprays to add color to 2 of these tags. They took all these mediums well.

Here are the approximate sizes of the tags (in centimeters):

- 16.5 by 8.9
- 13.4 by 6.8
- 9.5 by 4.8
- 6.7 by 2.7
- 5 by 3
- 5 by 2

One idea to use the smaller sized tags is to add them as cute embellishments or for stamping/writing messages whilst the larger sizes can be used for making gift tags.

Here is a little peek at some of the projects:

Thanks a lot for your time :)
Stay Blessed!

Post 395: Inspiration for Craft Stamper Magazine's Take it Make it Challenge-February

Hi friends !!

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Card I made as inspiration for Craft Stamper Magazine's Take it Make it Challenge for February. This time, the beautiful prizes are sponsored by Darkroom Door. Please do participate in the challenge for a chance at prizes, a Guest Design Spot and an opportunity to be published in the magazine!! All the rules are mentioned on the blog and we can't wait to see your wonderful creations :) 

Here are a few photos of the card:


First, I stamped the coffee image onto the watercolor paper panel and then did watercoloring with  zig clean color real brush markers, inktense pencils and a waterbrush. Then added a few highlights and shading with prisma color pencils. To add more interest & texture to the background, I added white gesso through a stencil in a few different areas.  Then stamped on a border and darkened the edges of the panel with black soot distress ink. Added the sentiment which is a die cut. (It was layered white on black and adhered slightly off-set to get a shadowed look). Finally matted the panel with black cardstock and foam mounted it on a white cardbase, 5 by 7 inches in size.
