Give Thanks for Unknown Blessings

Hello Friends ,

Today I have a project  to share . I had this very sturdy plain box with me for long. With Xmas coming up, I thought of decorating it .

I have decorated it with loads of PP , beads, ribbons, flowers .

The Theme I had in mind was Thanks Giving - We should always thank God for the Unknown blessings he showers on Us.
The birds view
The flap with the Bling
The Rear view

I cut all the PP according to size , distressed the edges and pasted over the box. Once over the edges were not looking so good . I then took the ribbon from my stash and went around the borders. It looked wow !!

Then I embellished it with Die cuts, the birdie chipboard , flowers and corner ornaments ..
The Birdie - Momma and Kiddie   <3

The Inside was Lined using a lace . To add bling to it I added another layer of Bead hanging lace too. The pic is not so clear though. The base has a cardstock with " Give Thanks for Unknown Blessings " stamped and placed it inside the box base ..

I wanted to place a big button as opener . But as I went through my stash , found this cut little yellow ribbon floral bow kind and was sure I wanted this here :)

Materials used :

1.DCWV PP - Itsy Bitsy

2.Birde chip board  - Itsy Bitsy

3. Rectangle Frame - Joy! Crafts - Cutting & Embossing Die -  (Priya Shivraj)

4.Oval Die - Itsy Bitsy

5.Flowers , Beads and Ribbons from my stash

Happy Creating and Up-cycling !!

Kids project - A Junkar

Hello Friends ,

Have you ever been on a Junkar . My son loves it . Being from Kerala he loves boats  and Junkar as it can carry vehicles too .

I have today a project made by my son , helped by his Mumma :) Designed by Sreenivas. :)
He got this picture from a book and said , he wanted to make this. After racking my brains for one day , with inputs from his grandfather too :), We came up with this idea .. Yippee . He was too excited  about it !!!

First of all we took 2 medicine bottles and covered it with Brown wrapping paper . He chose brown to depict Logs ..

The Side of the logs were given a Red colour . We cut 4 circles from Red chart paper .
Its to be seen in the dark too ..

Then we covered the icecream sticks with the same paper too .  Made a sail with icecream sticks and PP and stuck all together like this below .. Yes Junkar does not have sail, It was his fancy to do so :)

A very simple and fun loving project :)

Yes he has kept few flowers from my stash and his fav car too ! :)

Hope you enjoyed this simple little Junkar by my little son .

Altered Pen stand

Hello friends ,

I have here today an altered pen stand  . This Penstand was my sister's sendoff gift she received when she graduated from Agri University .. It was a simple wooden pen stand .
Now she loves my altered works so  much that I decided to alter it and give it to her . So that she will can always cherish her college days and my work too :)

I first applied scrap papers on to the Wooden Pen stand . Then I gave a coat of Gesso on it .

I stuck all the little things I keep collecting  - Buttons, Screws , Bottle caps , broken peices from toys. You can see flowers too . Those are handmade ..

I gave another coat of gesso all over the things stuck to give all a whitewashed look . Then I added peach acrylic colour all over to give it a lovely peachy look. I love peach colour , so does my Sister .

Here you can see paper clip attached to the pen stand. Now this can be used to keep important visiting card or paper pieces . A Multi utility stand .. Yes !!:)
Hope she loves it ..

Thanks for stopping by  :)

A Journal Cover

Hello Friends ,

I have been wanting to give a new face to my Journalling book.  Its not Art Journal , Its just  a Book where I write down my ideas and the few thoughts of mine ..

I am at awe with the Mixed media . Don't you think its so eye catching with the loads of Layers , Inks , Embellishments and Mists .   So I finally gave it a try .  I know I needs Loads and Loads of practice.

I started by Giving a make over to my Journal .

I covered it first with Tissue paper. Added  layers  with Old Greeting cards . Embellishments used are old Key chains hangings . The Monogram " A" stands for ART .. :)
I have worked on the Alphabet too. Coloured it with Red and added  TH Distress Crackle over it ..
It looked yumm..

You can see the Layers of old cards in this view.

 The Guitar is from a Keychain.  Added alcohol ink over it.  See how they gel into giving a great texture.  The Background is also crackled using the Distress crackle ..

The Final look

The Pen stand is also complimenting it Right ??  . Yes ,  It too is altered .   :)

Hope you liked it :) Thanks for stopping by :)

Tool Cabinet ..

Hi Friends ,

We all have loads of crafting tools .. Some are quite sharp . With Kids around there is always a danger of hurting/ cutting themselves with the sharp tools.

So I usually keep them in a Box ..

I decorated it with my lovely quilled flowers and leaves ..

Hope you liked it .

Thanks for stopping by ,
