A mixed media wall art by DT Kriti Mishra

Namaste everyone!!

I am Kriti Mishra and I am very excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari design team, and this is my first post. Heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and entire Rainbow Crafykari team for this opportunity. Today, I have come up with a tutorial post.
I have made a mixed media wall art. A sneak peak

Tutorial for this

1. Firstly take a watercolour paper, cover it with clear gesso and dry it with the heat gun.

2. After that take a regular tissue paper, crush it between your hands and tear it in small pieces. Now paste these small pieces over the paper (in random manner) to make the first layer of texture, and prime it with white heavy gesso(apply gesso with spatula to make more interesting extra texture). Now randomly add some thread to add more texture and cover it with  gesso, after that dry it with heat gun.

3. Spray some water on the surface and spray the colours. Movement will happen and stop spraying when you get the desired shade.

4. After that use any background stamp( I have used bubble stamp) to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open spaces.

5. Now embellish it in any way you like ( I embellish it with some burlap string, flowers, glass beads and with some sequins). Add lastly adorn it with a beautiful quote or a sentiment(I distressed the edges with distress ink). And its all done.

 A sneak peak...

So, for this firstly I have taken an embroidery hoop....and sponged it with white gesso by papericious. Next added some colour splash of green colour with modelling paste( Both from Itst Bitsy) and used Rose stencil (By Craftyscrappers) to make some texture on the pattern paper (Naturals by Papericious) and adhered the paper on the hoop.

Then collected some die cuts two doilies(itsy bitsy),  few flowers (Perfect Affair by Papericious), few more embellishments (itsy bitsy) and sequins(Papericious).

Shabby chic card with handmade flowers

Namaste Everyone!!

It's Kriti here sharing a mixed Media card with some handmade flowers. This is an inspiration post for our ongoing challenge Blooms Magic at Rainbow Craftykari blog. I made this card after getting inspiration from a quote "  Life holds special magic for those who dare to dream". A Sneak peak

I have used Fairyland collection from Papericious. These papers are gorgeous with lots of flowers, fairies, butterflies and few sheets of die- cuts and sentiments.

I took an ivory cardstock of size 6" x 4.5 ". Then took two beautiful contrast papers from the pack, distressed the edges and layered onto the cardstock. After that fussy cut some butterflies, leaves, flower and a fairy. Also put a sentiment from the sheet matching the theme of the card.

 Now the best part, I made some handmade flowers also to embellish the card. Have a look...

I have a tutorial for you all for these simple yet elegant flowers.

Tutorial for Flower

1.Cut a circle from a paper. starting at the outside edge, cut a spiral towards the centre. Slightly zig- zag the edges will create a more natural looking flower.

2. Beginning from the outside, tightly wrap the paper, rolling towards the centre.

3. Next release the coil so that it will grow.

4. When you get to the end, you will have a little round part.Put a little glue on it and press to adhere the coiled paper. Aren't these paper roses are cute.

 I made these to embellish my card but they can be used for so many things! Also cut two leaves with Prima dies to make these flowers a complete look.

Here is the final card

Some close-ups

 I hope you like my card...will meet you all soon with a new project

DIY Gift Envelopes by Kriti Mishra

Namaste Friends!!

Today I am here with a DIY project with a tutorial.

So, what do you do with all your scraps of patterned papers? I always try and utilize them for something good, useful and pretty.

This time I have used Splashing Colours by Nakshathra designz.


1. Cut a few 4” circles from the patterned papers. You will need four circles per envelope. I have used circle die to cut the circles.

 2. Fold the circles in half using your bone folder.

3. Adhere the circles together. Position the first circle with the straight edge on the left. Place another circle at the top and make sure the edges are straight, then adhere then together on the inside. Repeat with all four circles.

4. Make sure that you only apply adhesive to the area that will not be visible. Once adhered together your envelope will look something like this.

5. Wrap a piece of pattern paper around the envelope. Adhere it with glue to hold it in place.
Voila its ready!! Have a final look.

They are so quick and easy to make and can be used as small envelopes, thank you cards, birthday invitations and more.

I hope you like this project.

Mixed media tag

Namaste Friends!!
Today I am sharing a mixed media tag using paper from Vintage Melange from my DT kit.
Mixed media is all about fun techniques, but also using different textures and materials. I had combined many different mediums including, stamps, texture paste, laces, flower etc. This project can be used to create a fabulous accent to any gift!
Have a look,

Some close-ups of the depth and texture of the tag. Notice the nice contrasting colours and texture that add interest.

Now tag is ready to use as gift tag, decorative tag, or other item.  Mixed Media Art Tags are a great way to use your scraps and experiment with colour schemes.

Happy crafting

A memory Book

Namaste Friends!!

A Memory Book, a perfect way to cherish the memories. Today I have a designed a memory book, a gift from a daughter to her parents.

She doesn’t need a special day to say "Thank You" to her mom and dad. So, she just said "Mom and dad, I grew up cocooned in your love, comforted by your hugs and motivated by your lives… and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for everything."

I have used Vintage Melange  paper pack from my DT kit , papers are really gorgeous.

So, here is the album
 Some close pics..

It opens up like this...

I hope you like this project.
