Greetings!

hello everyone its Shalini here.
So , For me Summer Fun is little different...For me Summer means lots of summer holidays ..n holidays means visiting to Nani's home , visits of Bhua ,massi n lots of cousins...So for me welcoming them to our home is actually a big fun of  Summers...

I deliberately kept this project very simple to show that Expressions craft products  are not only for  moms. These products are so easy to use that even kids can make lots of projects .So here i used  soft Cotton cloth from fabric pack n fan folded  n Iron it to make layers n then stretched it on embroidery hoop . N rest you can easily understand from the project itself..
Happy Summer Holidays to all






Hello everyone its Roshni here 
and for the summer theme challenge I have altered my old broken sunglasses into this mix media piece.  Summer is the time to put on some cool shades and for this fun summer change I thought why not alter some old shades. I have used a bunch of expressions craft products to alter this piece. 
I also have a video tutorial for the same 










I hope you liked the project and got inspired to join us for the challenge

Cote D'azur

Hi everyone..

This is Isha Pai and today I am sharing the photo tutorial of Cote D'azur (French Riveria) made on canvas board. This can be framed and hanged on the wall of your study or living room. 





Lets begin with the photo tutorial 

Step 1: Firstly to make the canvas board, I took 12" x 12" thick chipboard and pasted left over canvas sheet over it. Then applied thick coat of Immix heavy white gesso covering the whole area and also applied gesso over the grapwine leaf and summer moments chippie. 

Then fussy cutted the prints of light house, grass mountain, seagull birds and boat.


Step 2: After the gesso dried up, I pasted Immix cheese cloth at the botton using Immix Art Medium Matte. and over it randomly poured the mixture of Immix deco stones mixed with art medium and also the mixture of Immix sprinkle glitz mixed with Immix texture paste, to give sandy and grainy effect.


Step 3: After drying everything with heat tool, I started the coloring part. Used Immix Sprinkle Mist Chest nut at the bottom for sand look and Immix Sprinkle Mist deep teal blue and royal blue to give sea and sky effect. And colored the grapwine chippie with Immix Chalk paints sweet pea and aqua marine. 



Step 4: Then started pasting the prints, chippies and left over sea shells randomly covering the design. And then the beautiful and calm sight of Cote D'azur is ready.


I hope you all enjoyed the above photo tutorial..

Love And peace from me to you.. 

Happy Crafting!

Thank you.. :)
