Altered Box -Decoupage with new chalk paints

Hello everyone!
Happy Thursday!

I am back with a beautiful altered gift box.
The current ongoing challenge is using New Chalk Paints and I enjoyed using them!

I have a very beautiful dry fruit box in my stash for a long time. I wanted to perfect use of it and the moments I saw the newly launched chalk paints with decoupage papers, metal charms........... I know what to do and here it is!

First I primed the box as it is already covered with a designer paper, so I applied a layer of a diluted gesso.

Then applied new chalk paint Sangria which is so rich in color and can create a rusty look or shabby as well as vintage effect as per your desire.

I wanted a mix of both shabby and vintage look, so I chose a beautiful decoupage paper fairy blossom pack. To toned down the chalk paint colour effect I applied a coat of snow chalk paint over it. It dries so fast and quick! Then I applied a coat of Crackle medium with Basecoat and after drying I added Topcoat on it. Love the crackling effect on it.  Then I burnished glimmer moss metallic wax with a paper napkin and rubbed the extra carefully.

A close-up pic of crackling effect:

Have you go through the little Birdie metal charm accessories, beyond beautiful. For this, I choose a mask for my project along with some primed chippies.
I also added a thermocol half heart shape too. Now given a coat of Sangria chalk paints to all with Lime mint and snow chalk paint effect.

Created a border around my pic using a stencil with a grainy texture paste with a hint of some text using script stencil. Now playing with some Gold alcohol splash.

A rough pic how my mind come up to decorate and embellish now!

Enhanced the beauty of this projects using Handmade flowers!

On these,
 I applied Tinted metallic paint.

Finally adhered all the pieces along with handmade flowers, some chippies with Live your dreams
sentiment, mini pellets and some silicone moulds designer pieces too.
Highlighted the raised areas of my embellishments using Tinted Metallic paints.

Here is the opening of the box. It has a magnet inside and I added a cute handle to it using soft gel medium, a strong glue for all type of materials.

Some close-ups of the project:

Here is the inside while opening the box. 



I totally enjoyed the new chalk paints and cute metal charms. And try to bright colors in a balanced way to add cheer and warmth to your projects!

Happy crafting!
Love and Hugs!

White on white with a pop of color!

Hello friends!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year 2020!!!

This is my first card of the season with a theme -white on white card with a pop of colour red! How exciting!!!!
My DT post for Cut It Up Challenges inspiration!
I love the look of topper intricate design with hanging lamps that is my inspiration to make this beautiful card.

I started with stamping the sweet image of a skating bunny and coloured it with my ZIG watercolour brush. Fussy cut the image.

Now die cut a topper die from a white CS. for my top panel  I die cut a stitched circle window to create a scene. Now cut some of the pieces from my topper decorative die and adhered under the window circle. Added some red colour to reflect the light from the hanging lamps.

Now adhered this panel to my card base. Die-cut a double stitched circle and before adhering it onto my panel I added the remaining part of that decorative topper die with dimension. 
Added some glossy accents for more texture and interest to the hanging lamps.
Now stamped the sentiment with a dotted heart.

Here is the inside view of this card wishing Happy New Year!

I am happy with this how it turned out!

Snow fun Layout!

Happy Monday!

Winter season needs fun and frosting.
Snow fun LO for all to adore. The fluffy white snow brings a chill to the air, winter activities, snowflakes, hot cocoa, the birds reminding me of the bliss of happiness.

Nothing says fun like a ton of snow and skiing in the snow. This was my sister's first-time trip in the snow. And her fur coat reminds me of a snowman. I wanted to make this keepsake for her to rejoice her memories, the short trip to Manali in India. A place where people come to relax, have fun in the snow, enjoy some quiet time and make some lasting memories.

The Papericious Winter Rhimes PP is so beautiful and perfect for this LO that I am stuck in winter creation with snow fun:) using a lot of fussy cuttings, winter vibes, sparkling to show you all today.
The background is made on cardboard with Winter Rhimes papers. A coat of clear gesso before adding all the elements. Created textures using teal blue spray.

I added a torn paper layers behind the pic which reminded me of snow.

The berry foliage is sprayed with teal blue then heat embossed with nice ice blue.

The swirly chippie is representing a big snowflake which is heat embossed with sparkling snow.

The Christmas trees with a deer is a die-cut which is also heat embossed and then I sprayed the bamboo color on deer with some textures on it. A sentiment with snow textures.

All the fussy cut elements.

Can u see the snow texture on this beautiful lantern, it looks like real snow!

There are some pine boughs, lots of hologram silver glitter looks like falling snow. The other decoration is a lot of felt flowers with glittery handmade flowers added more interest using snow paste.
Once I liked how everything was positioned, I adhered my title words SNOW FUN using white foam.
Focus on the details: 

I hope you enjoyed my reveal today!
