IQCG January 2019 - My Passion, My Love

Hello Crafty Friends,

I really had a looong break from blogging, but back again as a DT member of my favourite challenge yet again.

This month at IQCG we are playing with the theme My Passion, My Love. What a wonderful way to start the crafting year. Although I started my crafting journey with Quilling, I have absolutely fallen in love with art journaling and mixed media over the past few months. So, for this theme I decided to combine the two and create a mini canvas.

Its a beautiful theme to work on and I am sure we are going to see a lot of amazing projects. Click here to link your creations.

Winner will receive this awesome Bubbles Frame Die from Shylaa.

#79 - Altered Box

An old perfume box altered into something interesting. I would probably use this to store my jewellery. 

Started off by applying some clear gesso and then assembling the little embellishments. Then, I covered it all with  black gesso and then finished it all with metallic wax.

Well, keeping in mind the beauty of this season we have come up with the Fall theme and here is my inspiration.

IQCG# 38 - Mixed Media - Textures and Shine

Time for the monthly challenge at the IQCG blog and this time we are looking for something mixed media with lots of textures and shine.

My DT inspiration is here

I altered a perfume bottle and thoroughly enjoyed the process and was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I started of with pasting tissue paper with some gel medium. Once that was dried I glued the chipboard and the glued elements(flowers and leaves). The next step was applying black gesso and once that dried I coloured the flowers and leaves and the chipboard with some metallic acrylic paint.
Sprayed some mica sprays  and spread some gold wax for an added effect. Finished it off with some microbeads.

Materials used :
Gel medium
Tissue paper
Black gesso
Metallique wax
Mica sprays
Micro beads
Acrylic paint
