Fabric and more fabric

Today we have a fun tutorial for you’ll. When we read Papericious’s Challenge for October- add some fabric, we were excited. We just bought the latest collection of laces and jute cords and now we had a reason to use them :)! We also were happy with “Paint the sky make it your” challenge for October at Mixed media Place and with the techniques used in this project, we surely have broken a few of our limitations.

We’ve altered a tray into a wall art piece.

Products used- Papericious paper from Infinity collection; laces- flowers, square, leaves;jute cord wine red; self adhesive buttons, micro beads and pearls.

Step 1- We cut the paper according to the interior of the tray , however we kept the length 12″. We then scored it at 1″ and fan folded it (alternating up and down). We then spread it out and adhered to our tray with tacky glue.

Step2- We covered the sides and rim with crackle texture white using a palette knife.

Step3- We wanted to make flowers  with the laces. We cut the square lace horizontally creating three rows and each having seven squares. We cut out circles on an ivory sheet to assemble our flowers. With each strip of lace, we used the same fan folding technique (alternating up and down), and stuck it onto our circle at one point in the centre leaving the rest to spread out like a fane. We stuck three such next to each other creating a flower. We made two such flowers.

We also cut the leaves lace to get 6 individual leaves. We then laid out three onto our circle and added three more on top in the gaps. This is what we achieved.

Step4- We used the remaining paper and die cut a few flourishes. We then added splashes of pink and gold to all our elements including the flowers lace and the crackle sides and rim of the tray. We completed our fabric flowers with pearls in the centre.

Step5-We now assembled and stuck all our elements on the tray using glue gun. We added the self adhesive buttons, jute cord and micro beads at this stage. We stamped the word cherish onto left over pieces and added it in to give some meaning to this piece.

And voila! This surely turned out fabulous and we were amazed at our own creation. Hope you guys enjoy this tutorial, and get to making one yourself!

Memories

Memories.. its a huge pool. And how do we preserve them? For artists scrapbooks are the thing. Today we’ve created a layout for the DCWV Stack-a-holic October challenge and we’ve preserved our Singapore Trip memories. We’d got a mini puzzle and after making it we decided to use it here :)!

We’ve used The Solstice and Hello Darlin Paper collection. We also used some epoxy and 3D stickers.

Spooky Halloween

We are so excited with halloween project of ours. This is our work as a guest designer for Mixed Media Mojo October, 2016 The theme is Spookiness and the twist Bats.

So we created a mixed media canvas.

We prepped our canvas with white gesso and stuck die cuts of bats, some wooden pieces, hay, coconut shavings and a few dusty attic chipboards. We then covered all our elements on the canvas with heavy white gesso. Once dry we did the same with black gesso. We added crackle texture paste to the sides and in between our chipboard elements.

Next we started adding in colour with  ColourArte pigments-green and gold. We added our highlight colours with Lindy’s Stamp gang Rizzos Rowdy Red and Tears on my Pillow Tangerine. We built our canvas further using silks in red, orange and green. We also sprayed Lindy’s Blazing Black to further our spookiness!

Once we were happy with our colours we painted a chipboard gate with the same colours and arranged our die cut elements. We coloured our elements with the same Blazing black spray and metallic acrylics.and adhered them onto our board.

Ombre and change

Today we’ve attempted the More Than Words October Challenge- Ombre and Change.

We’ve used the transitions from blue to green on this journal spread. When we thought of change we thought of butterflies. So we’ve incorporated elements from nature- butterflies, leaves and flowers to show change.

This spread is very pleasing to our eyes and has a calming effect! Hope you feel it too :)!

Our love for mixed media

So when we read about Jo’s Scrap Shack DT Call we thought we should give this a shot. We read about creating a project exclusively for the call showcasing our style and personality. We knew it right away that mixed media it is!

So we created this tissue box (home decor product) using vibrant colours and mixed media. It truly reflects our personality and style. We have always been proud about our colour usage and Dots to Lines has been about spreading joy and smiles in homes.

Here is our box! We hope that we’ve managed to bring a smile on your face today with this creation:)!

Toran with a twist

With Diwali nearing and cleaning at home on, how can we not change our torans?! This time we decided to make one ourselves!

We combined the Papericious September challenge Festivities and Celebrations and Peek-a-boo-designs’ Art recipe Challenge 11. We also catered to Lulupu The Craft Lounge’s October Challenge- Bling a Ding With a Stamping Twist. We used Papericious Papers and from Peek-a-boo designs’ art recipe we used the main ingredients- 1/4 cup red, 1/4 cup gold and number 1; for our garnish we used the stamp to create our background and a dash of glitter.

For our toran we used the Red Damask Paper Collection from Papericious and the back of some paper pieces from left over . We coloured the plain ones gold, and stamped and heat embossed using the Swirly Time stamp set and gold powder. Our focal elements have been stamped from the Indian Motif Stamp Set. Using paisleys we created diyas and the number 1 became our wick!  We die cut the paper using the Fishtail Banner Dies.

We alternated our red and gold and used some gold tissue and red ribbons to hold our toran together.
