Golden Dreams -- A shadow box + a mini album

Namaste Friends!!

This is Kriti, I am back again with two projects using the newly launched Papericious Shadow boxes and Papericious Gilded Onyx paper pack. 

So, here is the first project...




I have altered the 8" x 10" Papericious Shadow Box using Papericious Fairyland Paper Pack. Firstly I had covered the whole shadow box with Papericious White Gesso. After that given texture with some mdf bricks and some art stones(To stick them I have used Papericious Soft Gloss Gel) and again covered the entire base with white gesso.

After that applied Papericious White Crackle Paste over the bricks. Next, sprayed Papericious Sprintz Martian Green and let it dry.

After that covered the base with the pattern paper and embellished it with some flowers and die-cuts.
Sentiment that I have used here is from the same paper pack and I have used the newly launched Papericious Shaker Beads Pink at few places.

Few close-ups...







Now,moving on to my second project.... it's a mini album of size 4.5 " x 6.5" that I have created using Papericious Gilded Onyx Paper Pack. 

Have a look....




Firstly, I want to add that this is the most gorgeous and elegant paper I have ever seen and it has gold foil too. Coming to my album, it has 5 pocket pages, every page has flaps and few has belly bands to store lots of pics.

I have kept it simple as papers are beautiful enough but if you want you can embellish the pages.

I hope you liked both of my projects...do give it a try.

HUGS!!

Everything beautiful -- Decoupage Canvas (Pictorial)

Namaste Friends!!

Kriti this side...wishing you a very Happy New Year. This is my first post of 2018.

Today's project will feature the recently launched Decoupage Papers by Papericious and chalk paints. I made a decoupaged canvas using Decoupage papers, Chalk paints and Decoupage glue.



For this I took a 10" X 8" canvas and covered the entire canvas with white heavy gesso. And then cut the desired design from the decoupage paper.



Next I covered the entire canvas with Papericious Country Grey Chalk paint. And then with the help of spatula applied magenta colour acrylic paint at few places.



After that stamped it with script background stamp to make the background more interesting.



Then I have used Papericious Decoupage glue to adhere the design which I had cut it earlier.



Here are some final pictures...







I hope you liked it..

Decoupaged Glass Bottle

Namaste Everyone!!

This is Kriti today with an inspiration post...
The perfect way to use up your empty bottles is to alter them. Today's post is based on decoupage, which is a simple and effective way to recycle glass bottles and jars and create beautiful, unique decorations for your home and office.

Recently Papericious has launched some new decoupage papers and they can be used to create different gorgeous projects.

This is the project..



I started with a plain glass bottle that had been cleaned inside and out by soaking it in hot water( labels were removed) and then left it to dry. Then I have coated the bottle with two coats of white gesso.

After that I have applied Soft Rock Chalk paint by Papericious with the help of sponge.

Next, selected a beautiful decoupage paper from Whimsical Pack. I had cut some floral motifs. The quality of this paper is awesome, however, I felt it might be a little too firm to mould to the circular shape of my bottle. So, to save myself, I have moisten the backside of the paper with water, let it set a moment and then applied the Papericious Decoupage glue. Then positioned both the motifs and applied decoupage glue with a flat brush.

After that sponged the bottle with Dried Lavender Chalk Paint and embellished it.

Winter themed Gatefold Accordian Mini Album -- Step By Step Tutorial

Namaste Friends!!

This is Kriti and today I am here with a tutorial post. The winter has officially come, so I hope it will give you all an inspiration for your winter projects. And today I have got a mini album tutorial
using Papericious new release paper pack Winter Rimes. It mainly has two winter colours blue and beige, a perfect match for winters, comes in size of 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 inch.

Have a look...



I have made a Gatefold Accordion mini album and I enjoyed creating it because these papers have all the elements of winter that any one can think....

So, let's see how I have created this...

Firstly I have taken a chipboard piece and cut it into 5 pieces 12 x 16 cm, 8.5 x 16 cm, 5 x 16 cm and two pieces of 2 x 16 cm.



Adhere them on a cardstock, keeping a gap of 0.5 cm(so that it can bend easily) in each piece as shown in the picture below



Now score the edges, cut the corners and cover it.




Cover the inside of the album with the pattern papers


Now, cut a piece of cardstock into four pieces 23 x 15 cm. Score at 11 cm and 22 cm on the long side.


Join them together to make accordion, mat them and finally paste them inside the album. And voila! album is ready.

Some more pics..






It opens up like this...
