Baby Zodiac _ Mixed Media Layout


Manasa Priya back at the Expressions Craft studio with a tutorial on how to Acrylicmake your own baby photo layout.

This particular project can be used as your scrapbook page or can be framed as is.  I plan to frame it up my LO's layout ☺

So,  for this project I picked a white Cardstock from Expressions Craft as a base
The newly launched fabric pack was using for layering,  here I used a burlap sheet to keep my composition very earthy.

And I particularly highlighted the birth date in glitter,  used the premium glitter Alaskan Gold for the same.

Stamped with sentiments pertaining to the baby's Zodiac - Cancer
And all the characteristics pertaining to the sign to add interest along with some script to add to the background.
So here is my quick layout using the chalk paint azure and sprinkle mist deep teal.   I used the heavy gel medium to add textures
Used the art medium to stick all the elements in place.

I hope you liked it. Here is the detailed video tutorial for you guys ☺

Also,  listing out all the supplies used in creating this layout

Looking through the Window - Mixed Media Shadow Box Ft. Immix New releases

Hello Crafty People 🙂

Manasa Priya here, back on Expressions Craft blog today with a step by step tutorial on how to quickly make a layout in easy steps.

Follow this post to see how I created this shadow box. The theme of the box is The eternal love birds Radha and Krishna looking through the window onto a beautiful garden.

So I randomly picked up all my Expressions Craft stash to get started.

So,  now I took the Immix texture paste and Expressions Craft Dot and stripes stencil and stenciled randomly to add texture to my shadow box.
Then,  I placed the negative chippies at the base ( mind you, never throw your chipboard backings as they can be used to create beautiful patterns) and checked for the placement before I secured it with the newly launched art medium.  It is light weight and good to stick light embellishments among many other uses.
Now I used Immix Gesso and primed the entire surface. Then I added the newly launched pearl beads in the color solver to add some texture.
It's time to add colors.  Splish splash the sprinkle mists.  I chose the color deep teal blue for the corners and butt orange for the center. Look at the vibrancy and pigmentation! 
I finished by coloring and adding chippies and embellished with some charms and the newly launched cabbage rose buds.
And now comes my favorite part,  adding the beautiful glitters.  Can't tell you how amazing these newly launched premium glitters are.  Alaskan gold is to die for ❤
And here is my finished shadow box.  I hope you enjoyed going through the tutorial.
Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below..
Until next time..  ❤

Be Inspired

February is the month of is amazing how this month highlights our feelings towards the one whom we have come to love and share our life with....This month also saw the launch of Expression Crafts new products and by far my all time favorite has been Sculptex Contour Medium.I love to experiment and come out with something different...It's been a adventure for sure.

So moving on I decided to recycle some of old canvas .They already  had a coat of color so I took Immix white gesso and muted the color to give me an even tone... 

Immix White Gesso
Immix white gesso
The next step was to create a soft stencil effect on the canvas .I took Heavy dimensional gel and added a bit of glitter (Fairy dust)to it to highlight the design of the stencil.

 Immix Sculptor Tex contour medium.This is basically like a fabric hardener and can be used to sculpt fabrics to create interesting textures.This medium has four color tones totally to be used for ones purpose (Black,Brown,Grey,Clear) I chose clear for my project.To use this medium one definitely needs to wear gloves and the prep the table with plastic sheet .

I decided to use this fabric  pack which comes in three varieties (cheese cloth,cotton cloth and Burlap) available in Expression craft .This definitely made my job easy as I could see clearly that the fabrics were easy to use with this medium.I went with cotton cloth.

I started to cut the cloth in small bits and dipped them in the sculptex squeezing the excess and creating an interesting contour and let them sit for few minute till they were semi dry...Now I concentrated the area of interest with crackle based heart.I wanted to create a composition around it so I started layering the semi-dry fabrics around the heart.

Once I arranged it I felt that the fabrics created a heightened texture .This added more depth
 to my area of interest.
I wanted to create more textures and I added the deco stones with texture paste.Then took Immix Metallic new release paints Unicorn pink and Purple Affair.As the color palette had been set for this month I went with these two colors which gave me a shimmer of the Pinks...I kept washing down the color as the entire project rested on watercolor effects.I also embellished the heart with star fish for added effects. 
After playing a while I decided to bring more interest to the sculpted fabric by adding Immix Holiday gold.The gold highlighted the pinks underneath.I wanted to bring in a very simple composition for this very fact that the artist in us should not fear to explore and experiment.Understanding a medium and its effects is a lifelong work but never postpone it because of Fear.Happy crafting and always be inspired to try something new..
