dare to fly

We all have wings, it’s just that we need to dare to fly. In life, it’s always easy to succumb to excuses and pass on the blame, because anything and everything takes courage and belief. The belief in your own self and self-love comes first on this journey.

Here’s a mixed media canvas using Fantasy Dies- 642, 553,627 and 705; and Stamperia Mediums, Mould, Ceramic Powder.

The good news is we are teaching this. Yes if you are interested in learning this mixed media canvas and attending our workshop, e-mail us or message us on Instagram @addi.mahajan.


We’re adding this to

Fantasy Call

It’s always good to take up new challenges and join new teams. It’s a way of not only showcasing your skills but also learning and growing. It’s an exchange of skills, talents, ideas and much more and that adds value to lives.


Fantasy Dies is having a DT Call. They are recruiting people for two teams- one for the dies (knives) and another for the chipboards.

We are Sunila & Aditi (mother & daughter, aka Dots to Lines) and we live in Bangalore, India. We have been mixed media artists and scrapbookers professionally for about 4 years. We are into paper-crafting, Mixed Media Layouts, Art Journaling, Albums making, Altered Art and Scrapbooking. Our style of art and craft is a fusion of techniques and use of vibrant colours. We aim to spread joy. Every creation of ours, speaks a story and we enjoy sharing this with people. We keep learning and try to incorporate variety in our creations.  We keep ourselves updated and upgrade our skills timely.

We would like to apply for the Dies (Knives team), as much as we love chipboards. We are huge fans of Fantasy Dies. To work with either would be a bonus, so we are open to the latter too. We would love to be a part of the Team, to showcase creative ways of using Fantasy Dies/Chipboards. We have a great standing and viewership as artists/crafters in the Indian Market, and we would be able to contribute to the growth of the brand, reaching a newer market like India. We have many interested crafters/artists who love using dies and chipboards in their creations, and with us showcasing the product, it would sure help the brand enter this vast art world in India. With our versatility, we’d love to showcase them across projects- journals, cards, layouts, altered projects, etc. Also, it would be a great opportunity for us to work with a team of mixed artists, share, and learn together. We’re punctual and hence timely project submission is a plus! We are into blogging and have experience being Design Team Members. We are active on social media platforms. We regularly also participate in various blog challenges. Documenting memories, especially through mixed media art and scrapbooking makes us happy.

Along with an International Artist Nuneka, Aditi has an Instagram Challenge for 2019 by the name of Nomadic Soul Diaries.  Through this, we aim to encourage people to express their creativity. We have 50 international designers and various brands associated with us for this. And the response so far has been magnificent. 
We have also been a part of various Blog Hops and YouTube Hops with International Artists. We have a few upcoming events as well. We enjoy video tutorials and have an active YouTube channel.
We are also teaching at Art Walk Alchemy, a class each, this year. Here’s a link- https://www.mysticspringstudios.com/art-walk-alchemy/.  Apart from this, we do take workshops, and this year we are starting project-based workshops.

Apart from the canvas showcased above, here are some of our latest works. We have chosen different ones, to showcase our versatility (Tags, Layouts, ATCs, Journal Page, Canvas, Home Decor).

The Positive Vibes Hop-Beautiful Moments- Dots To Lines

Hop banner rect

Hello! We are Sunila & Aditi (Dots to Lines). Welcome to The Positive Vibes Hop. The purpose of our blog hop is to start the new year on a colourful & creative note, spread positivity & good vibes. We hope you’ll enjoy the mixed media projects & pictorials we have for you.

Altered Plate- Beautiful Moments

Our Project is an Altered Glass Plate in a mixed media style. The theme is positivity and we were inspired to put together things and create a vibrant decorative piece that spreads positive and our message is to collect beautiful moments. Here’s a look at it:




Start with a Glass Plate


Add White Crackle Paste through a Stencil for texture


That’s a look at the texture


Add colour using Alcohol Sprays and Blend then with the Blending Solution. Here the colour palette is blue, green and yellow


Here’s how it looks so far


Invert the plate. Stencil on the black using White Acrylic Paint.


Go over the white acrylic stencilling with black acrylic paint. This darkens the print.


This is what it looks like!


Invert it again, and that’s the print we have on our background


Pick flowers, pollens and other elements for layering!


Net or cheesecloth is a great first layer to build the focal!



Create a nice cluster


Add the fillers and pollens


Glue the cluster and add leaves! Here you can add chipboard, die cut, ephemera elements.


Rub some waxes, to highlight the stencil textures as well as the rim of the flowers.



Use White & Black Acrylic Ink and add splatter with a paintbrush.
