Spring is here.......

Hi Friends

I have created an art journal page in my Debris journal 

started with two coats of Gesso, adhered tissue to create texture on the background......... Fevicryl acrylic colors , texturing and stamping with acrylics....... all the flowers are hand made ........lots of random stamping using texture stamps and archival ink .

embroidered ribbons, washi and some blingy ribbon in shiny lime green for layering........

flowers made using a joycraft die and some punch-outs from foam.......

this die-cut has a lot of layers of home made Grunge paste, acrylic colors and lastly glass colors to give a glaze like shine and effect............

I really love the texture and shine here, another closer look............

my blingy ribbon looks so nice substrate is the debris journal made out of a sturdy cardboard box. you can see the Debris Journal  here. Hope you all like my maiden effort in my Art journal journey :)

Mixed Media Burlap Card

Hi Friends.........a mixed media burlap card with lots of handmade embellishments

........with a mixed media envelope too........
 ............Here is the set together..............

I got the pack of burlap cards with the envelopes by DCWV as part of a blog hop prize and really wanted to make a card for a special blogger friend who designs unique cards.

Here is a closer look, sequin waste stencil and homemade texture paste on the background, the sprocket die-cut is painted with a homemade glaze using acrylic paint and gel medium, the brown and silver foil is a chocolate wrapper and the flower is a handmade one with air dry cold porcelain and painted with acrylics, sentiment is computer generated, the twine is the Rs 15/- ball from the hardware store, a wooden button and little piece of cardboard complete this..

The envelope is stencilled using orange, gold and silver acrylic colors mixed with gel medium and sequin waste stencils.....

I do hope that 'someone' likes it as much as I have enjoyed making this :)
