Spring Swap, Hop and Giveaway- Sunila & Asia

Sunila here, sharing my creation for the Spring Swap. Dear friend, Nuneka asked me if I would love to be a part of sharing some Crafty love for fellow crafters. This sounded fun and I was excited! Scroll down to the end of the post for the hop and giveaway details.

The partner assigned to me is Asia and I made something special for her. She is such a brilliant Mixed Media Artist and I wanted to create something different. I decided to create a Tag Album and added some mixed media elements to it. I also made a card to go along with it.

Here is a look at the card:)! I have used Lindy’s Magical Shakers for the background- Yodeling Yellow, Cuckoo Clock Cardinal, Oktoberfest Orange, misted them with water. Added texture with embossing paste through a stencil, and added random stamping. I have completed it with die-cut elements.

Spring Swap, Hop +Giveaway Aditi & Preety

Spring is here and boy we love it! Sometime back, a crafty friend Nuneka, asked us if we would be interested in being a part of a crafty swap, and we said yes! Scroll down to the end of the post for the hop details and a giveaway!

Today is the day when we finally reveal our creations. A little about the swap- we formed a small crafty group and we were each assigned a partner. We had to create something for our partner and keep it a secret. Our projects travelled across the globe and we spread some crafty love.

In this post, I, Aditi, will reveal the project that I created for my partner Preeti Dutta. I wanted to create something that she not only treasures but also can use. Hence I made her a journal. I bought a blank sketchbook and designed the covers using mixed media. Preeti told me she loves Blues and Greens and that was perfect as those were spring colours. The phrases that I used on the cover are not just motivational but also go with the spring blossom. Check the video link below for more.
