Mixed Media Moon Chime

Today I’ve created a Mixed Media home decor piece inspired by two challenges. I was invited by Mixed Media Academy to guest design for their August Challenge. The challenge is to create something inspired by the colour palette and a Zodiac Sign.

I combined this with the Nomadic Soul Diaries August Challenge.

NSD August

Here’s my project: Inspired by MMA- The colour palette works for me very well because these are my go-to colours. I’ve used a crescent moon idea and created my interpretation of the universe. I believe my purpose is to heal, inspire and spread light. The Virgo Symbol is of a maiden carrying s shaft of wheat. In my interpretation, I’ve used it as a fairy carrying this light to illuminate the world. I’ve also depicted the universe from the Moon’s perspective, which means space seems white and the moon and stars have the colour:)! This to me is a metaphorical representation of how others perspective and point of view is so important for me. The phrases I’ve used are lines from a poem that I’ve written and talked about this idea. 

NSD- I’ve created a home decor hanging, used crystals and as for mosaic I’ve interpreted it as assorted patterns that make a whole and used a stencil and mandala to represent it.

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.

Artful Celebration- StencilGirl®

Hello everyone,

We’re on the StencilGirl® Blog. This month the theme is Artful Celebration. Since it’s December, it’s the season of Christmas and then the coming New Year.
We decided to create a few home decor products that we could use at home during this season. We chose very wintery colours- White, Blues and Purple.
Here’s a look at what we’ve created:

The technique to create these is super fun and easy. Hence, these things make for quick projects. They are also great gifting ideas. Hop on to the blog to see how we made these.

We used stencils from the ATC Mixup- L655 designed by Andrew BorlozL657 designed by Carolyn Dube and L 665 designed by Kristie Taylor.

Here are some more pictures:

Hope you’re inspired!
Hugs Sunila & Aditi
