good friends don’t let you do stupid things alone!

Today we’re on the ScrapsnPieces Blog with a guest post. We are so thrilled with this opportunity and are excited to show our project!

We’ve created a Round Canvas for the current mood-board challenge.

The colours, of course, intrigued us, and the quote. It took us back to some great memories. We decided to capture it all on a canvas that can adorn a wall in our room.

Here’s a look at our creation:

We were inspired by two challenges for this one:

7 Dots Studio April Challenge– We played with the colour palette and were inspired by the flowers, and walking down a path under the night sky.

Scraps n Pieces April Challenge-  A few of our favourite things- to walk under the enchanting, magical night sky and nature. We also used colours from the palette.

We were inspired by the mood board at 7 Dots Studio February Challenge for this layout. We’ve used the Northern Lights Collection along with stamps and stencils from other 7 Dots Studio Collections.

We were also inspired by the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge- Add a Die-cut-  Our layered elements- leaves, ferns are all die cut.

Scraps n pieces February Challenge– Dare to Blossom- inspired by the colour combination of turquoise with pink and the blooms.

No fuss journaling

Today we’re here to show you our latest journal page. The title says it all, we decide to work with minimal elements and create a page within 5 minutes. Sometimes, art doesn’t have to be complicated, the less the better and trust us it’s effective!

So here’s a look at our page

Feb Scrap n pieces JP 1Feb Scrap n pieces JP 2Feb Scrap n pieces JP 4Feb Scrap n pieces JP 3Feb Scrap n pieces JP 5Feb Scrap n pieces JP 6

We were inspired by the January Moodboard at Scraps n Pieces Blog. The colours, the image of the drink and ‘Baby it’s cold outside’. So we used these and decided to journal. When it’s cold and you just want to relax, you don’t want to work too hard, and our page reflects that mood as well.

Non-Verbal Spells

Today we’ve created a set of two tags. We’ve used an acrylic sheet as our base, with 7 Dots Studio Hazy Days Collection. We’ve used Art Alchemy Paints and waxes, Art Extravagance Glitters and Finnabair Mediums. We’ve used Lindy’s Sprays- Tweedle Dee Denim, Hydrangea Blue, Sidewalk Chalk, Gossamer Gold, Bayou Boogie Gold.

We came across the Magic School Joint Venture and saw the deadline for Stage1 was extended. So we decided to play along and take part. For the transparent material- we’ve used an acrylic sheet, Art Melange pebbles and tiny glass bottles to hold our magic potion.

Here’s a look at our layout before we getting into our inspirations:)!

Words and Paintery October challenge – inspired by the colours and theme of creating without limits.

Favourite Artist

Well, today we’re here with an interesting creation! We were inspired by the Canvas Corp Brands August Challenge- Let’s Visit the Cinema (#ccbchallenge) (our LO revolves around a music composer, playback singer, and actor of the Indian Cinema) and the 7 Dots Studio Challenge Favorite Artist (Our favorite artist from Indian Cinema).

Our creation revolves around Shekhar Ravjiani, the famous music composer from the duo Vishal-Shekhar. He is an amazing singer and has sung songs in several Indian languages, and different genres. He has also acted in the film Neerja! He is an inspiration, and we can listen to his songs on the repeat playlist zillions of times (including his devotional songs).

Recently, he has launched a single ‘Devi’, a tribute to daughters/women. We have immense respect for him and when we saw these two challenges we couldn’t help but create a layout with him!

Now we are such huge fans, that we couldn’t stop at one layout; so we decided to create two :)!

For both are layouts we used the 7 Dots Studio Hazy Days Collection, Art Alchemy Paints, Lindy’s Sprays, Papericious Chippies, Sizzix Die, Art Ingredients glitter. Same materials and two different projects!

Here’s the first one:

The lyrics are from a song Gehra Ishq from Neerja and here’s an English translation-

“in your light breeze,
my existence has begun to fly away.
this fragrant love, that is all fragrance
this submerged-immersed, deep love.”

Shekhar LO 1a

Here are some close ups:

Here’s our second layout:

“The bigger the dream, the stronger your faith needs to be. Believe and you will achieve.”- Shekhar Ravjiani
