Steampunk Storage Jar of Treasures by Reniferove


Good Evening 

This is a great idea to keep all your small embellishments stored in and its really cool to having sitting on your desk filled with all your little AD treasures. 

All the products used are linked at the bottom of the blog. 




Welcome ! Today I would like to show you that small can also be beautiful. 

I decided to decorate a small jar for small metals, you know how it happened that someone has a birthday and you have to send some metal decorations.

 My jar was painted with black gesso and purple wax from Finnabair. 

The next step is to glue all elements. The surface of the jar is small, but I used a lot of different elements. 

MDF elements were the first layer, then different metals and a little sisal. Penny Farthing and lettering at the top. Everything gently rubbed with golden wax.

Floral Tag by Teresa Morgan



Hello crafter's 

Feeling tender tonight, had a filling at the dentist, thought they were supposed to take you out of pain lol.... but looking at this very pretty design fro Teresa has cheered me up, love the way the resin pieces have been coloured, it just says woodland, fab.


As always the products used and listed at the end of the blog. 

Teresa has also used a gold sand, which at the moment is only available as a set of 4 from Hochanda 




Apply modelling paste through the stencil and around the edge of the tag with a palette knife. Sprinkle some decorative sand into the paste around the edge of the tag while it is still wet.







Once dry, apply washes of acrylic paint to the tag.






Apply a coat of gesso to the resin shapes and allow to dry before adding colour with acrylic paints.








Gather a selection of flowers and moss to embellish your tag.









Make antennae for the butterfly from craft wire.





    


Arrange your embellishments and glue in place with gel medium.

Romantic Shadow Box by Priya Mishra



Hello crafty people 

Tonight Priya has been playing with some of the elements I brought to the Hochanda show. Mixing the hard wire with such a feminine feel is genius. it blends together remarkably well, proving that you don't need to do dark projects to use something which is more industrial in this way. 




Hello Friends,
Today I have a soft romantic shadow box to share with you all I have used all ArtfulDays products here.

I started with a white sweet box which has this beautiful shadow box inside it and I decided to make something interesting out of it.

First I gave a coat of Heavy white gesso all over and created some beautiful patterns using AD stencils and texture paste.
Once it was dry I coloured it with Lindy's magical shaker and started adding my elements.

I adhered AD Treasure Trove wire metal for the background and also used below my picture.
I used Lemoncraft paper here for all elements and the picture is also from the paper pack. I fussy cut the flowers to use here.

Also I used Scrapiniec chipboards from the store to decorate my project. The frame and all the other chipboard elements are from the store.

Hope you like my project.

 

 

  
 

Thanks Priya

Vintage Tag by Reniferove


Hello crafter's If you follow me on Facebook, you will already have seen that I am going to Hochanda on Monday for my very own show. WOOHOO I am really excited to show you the products, demos and samples my 2 lovely helpers have made.  Would love if you could tune in, you can watch via their website and on TV at these channels below 



  •                   SKY 673 (24/7)
  • FREEVIEW 85 (6AM-7PM)FREESAT 817 (24/7)                         


    Reniferove is back with another stunning project tonight, all the products used are linked at the bottom of the blog.



    Welcome! Today I have prepared a tag for you on a wooden base.

    Of course, I started the work by applying a layer of white gesso from Finnabair. 

    Then the background was stamped and I started composing my composition.

     I used Bingo cards and pieces of paper that were on my desk.

     Between layers I put gears with MDF and metal elements. 

    The last addition was a small MDF clock and a cabochon with a clock. The colour was given by the new Lindys Squirts and olive-coloured alcohol ink.

    Smile video by Priya Mishra


    Hello fellow crafter's 

    Priya has been filming this awesome canvas, the drama with the black and then the orange tone flowers is so exciting. And another peak at the flowers coming very soon........


    Hello Crafty Friends,

    Today I have a video tutorial for a mixed media canvas. 

    Sometimes life brings lots of surprises and dull moments and you don't know how to react.

    So, my motto is never forget to smile . My canvas is dark and mysterious with the pop of colour from the flowers.


    All the products used are listed at the end of the blog. 


    Here's the link to the tutorial
