A Letter Holder

Sharing my inspiration post for Bob N Betty blog.
Have you seen the new range of decoupage papers? Morning Glory & Knighthood? There are colors & designs for almost all moods…….be it vintage or shabby, browns or blues, brights or pastels!
I particularly loved this set from the Morning Glory collection, bright & yet pleasant soothing colors & the water color like texture lends it such a rich artistic look!

Wedding Invite using Rine Foiled Paper

Hello & Welcome back!

Rinea foil has paper-like properties & can be used with standard dies with ease. For my project today I used a very intricate Spellbinders die (Tranquil Moments) for a wedding invite. Without much effort except running the sandwich several times through the cutting plates, I got fantastic die cuts. Here is the card -


 Isn't it gorgeous????


The intricate die & the star struck foil in fuchsia  were just perfect! So much depth & dimension!


 I have another version of this card too............Indian version as I call it! The paisley embellishment is perfect, do you agree!!!

DIY Mason Jar Tissue Holder


Hello, I am at the Rinea Blog today with a gorgeous makeover of the good old mason jar. I have upcycled it for use as a tissue holder.


The foil cuts like butter with all dies!
For this project I have used blush gold foil from the jewel variety pack,  I can't get my eyes off this adorable combination of black & blush gold foil!

Table Placemats

Hello & welcome back!

A while ago Sunanda, owner of Ullas Herbals aapproached to salvage these table placemats 😊



I was excited to revive these & give them a new life with DECOUPAGE.  Little did I know the back breaking task ahead! Hours of sanding to smoothen the surface & the corkboard base!
To refurbish them Sunanda sent me some serene pictures captured by her. 

Here is the outcome, so totally worth every minute I spent making these NEW placemats. 


Since she planned to use these daily we decided to coat the surface with resin & protect the table mats from day to day wear & tear. Absolutely loved the outcome - a faux glass look.

Texture Triangles

Hello Friends!
This is Tanvi with another brilliant product from Itsy Bitsy - the TEXTURE TRIANGLES

Texture triangle is an awesome tool to use for adding various texture effects to your mixed media projects. Creating horizontal, vertical, chequered, zigzag fan criss cross or other patterns of your choice is so easy with these texture triangles.

This is a three-sided tool & available in two variants. 
One triangle helps create fine lines & the other is useful for stripes & bands, each side of the triangle has different sized teeth, allowing you more variations when combing. Must have tool for mixed media artists. 



The possibilities of creating patterns with these is endless. For my experiments I mixed acrylic paint with impasto & played around with these triangles. Look at the array of pattern I created - 










I love textures & patterns and these tools are perfect for adding quick dimensions & interest to projects. I am no mixed media expert but after playing around with these tools I wanted to give it a try, sharing my attempt at this - 

This is a 4x4 Mont Marte canvas panel. Using the texture triangle over modelling paste I created the desired base for the mixed media. I used an old brush as a flower vase, chipboard shapes, some flowers & twine to make a layout. After which the entire layout was gessoed. For the bright colors I chose gold alcohol splash -  wild rose, hot pink & marigold


To highlight the textures I lightly brushed gold at places & that popped the layout


Just look at the awesome canvas loaded with textures!

MDF Decoupage Panel

Hello!
Decoupage is such a versatile art & if you have been following my work you know how passionate I am about this art form. Over the years I have tried a number of techniques & am always looking out for papers & patterns. Today's post is another such experiment, more about it in a bit, first let me share the wall decor panel first - 


This watercolor design I have used today is the print of an actual painting done by a talented friend Charu! She is an amazing artist, hop over to her page here! When Charu asked me whether I would like to use her painting for decoupage I was so excited! Thank you dear & hope I have done justice to your work.

Some more close ups of the panel - 


Blending the colors  to match the water color background was difficult, but I loved the result.

Along the sides & bottom are tiny cracks.

The quote is stencilled by mixing black acrylic paint & impasto.

DIY T-light holder

Hello & welcome here again!
This is Tanvi, sharing my inspiration for Rinea with Floracraft foam square, a quick & easy DIY  LED T-light holder.


Using a craft knife carefully sculpt a round on one side of the cube, the size of the LED T light. It is easy peasy to do this.


Next cut 5 pieces of 3x3" from the glossy gold foil from the metallics variety pack. I used mod podge to glue these onto the cube. Leave it for a few hours to cure.

I used a very intricate rose die & die cut four pieces from  Glossy Copper/Copper. Use these to decorate the prepared cube & the holder is ready! I used liquid enamel accents along the edges.

Here is the completed project -
