For .. It's spring time :)

This time around... my craft supplies were literally beckoning me to sit and craft.
To create something .. to make something fresh :)

And trust me,  creating n designing and crafting can be as therapeutic as any spa session for me:).

So, this time I wanted to make something with the fresh and flowery feel of spring ... for finally winters are done with :).

I ended up creating a mixed media clock ..  with flower's and birds.. about as springy as it gets.

and since I clicked a lot of pictures... this is going to be a picture heavy post:)

so .. that is how I started ... I used some modeling paste and a pretty ornate stencil to create the background

Used my favorite Lindy's starburst spray's to get the color ... only thing, instead of misting them all over, I used them with a brush so that I could get the desired effect ..
 then ...

mulberry flowers, some pattern paper... quilled leaves ... fussy cut birds ... And Laser cut mdf embellishments :)

And here we go :)

 The Final piece :)

Do let me know:). what you think of my , super special and very springy:)...  mixed media clock.

Since, I am entering this in the super fun lulupu birthday challenge this month:

Lulupu 2nd birthday special
My project consists of:

L - leaves, laser cut wooden embellishments, Lindy's sprays
P - pattern paper
C - clock, card stock(for base)
T- texture paste

A Lazy Blogger :)

Hey guys :), so when I actually opened my blog .. the realization finally dawned on me that I had not blogged for over 3months .. and we're well into march 2014 .. 

And can you guess .. this year's resolution :D.. 
obviously .. to blog about my creations a lil bit more ... well , so much for resolutions :)

Anyhow, the one post that I really should have put up ... And that too very proudly :).. is that I got the opportunity to be a guest designer for LULUPU - THE CRAFT STORE :)  


The theme was scrap - your-  scraps and here is what I created for it :)

Everything that I have used in this layout has been leftover from previous projects.

This is how I started … I first adhered strips of newspaper to a rescued chipboard and then, arranged my strips of pattern paper on a (previously cut out) heart

I then applied a light coat of Gesso on the newspaper (heat dried it ) and then misted it with Lindy’s starburst sprays.

I used a TCW stencils and modeling paste in the background …  and then again misted it till I achieved the effect that I liked

I then pasted my scrap pp heart ( which I lightly edged with distress ink) and then embellished it with some hearts that were again the negatives from a previously made frame.

: Here's the link to the blog post :)

 It was inspiration for Feb's challenge :)

Lots of love
