Enchanted Memories

Let’s take you down memory lane, and into a world of fantasy with enchanting memories. Life itself is the most wonderful Fairytale.

Today we’re super excited to share our latest creation. We’ve created a Pop-Up Book and used a lot of mixed media techniques for our front cover, and paper crafting for our pop- up pages.

We were inspired by the #ccbchallenge Canvas Corp Brands October Challenge- “Books Worth Reading”, the Mixed Media and Art Joint Project Stage 3- “The Breath of Nature” and the Mixed Media Place October Mood Board.

From the CCB Challenge- we’re taking you into the world of Enid Blyton books. All of us as children grew up reading these books, and today with our project we’ve re-created this mystical, enchanted world.

From the MMA Stage 3 challenge, we used natural material- twigs and moss on our front cover and the letters were incorporated in the form of phrases on our focal pictures.

From the MMP mood board, we were inspired by the images of the books, as well as the child’s room. We interpreted this by creating our own little book of adventure inspired by the famous children’s author Enid Blyton.

We’re also linking this project to the Stamplorations October Mixed Media Challenge 

Recently, on a trip to Porto, Portugal, a visit to the famous Livrario Lello Bookshop is a major inspiration behind this project. The bookshop is mystical and magical and happens to have inspired J K Rowling for her Harry Potter series. So the main front cover of our book shows how a visit to this bookshop can take you into this mystical world.

Further, we have three pop up pages showcasing different scenes. One in the form of a book page opening to the mystical land.

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.”

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