3-D Model of India Gate with Flag hosting!

Hello Friends!
Jai Hind!

Today I am on blog with my DT post! As you all know we all celebrate Republic day on 26th January in India.

Republic Day:
Republic Day, which marks the anniversary of the adoption of India's Constitution ( January 26, 1950) is an important national occasion. In the state capitals, colourful pageants and parades are held. The most spectacular celebrations are held in New Delhi, where a magnificent parade of the Armed Forces and civilians is accompanied by an impressive cultural pageant. This is followed by a colourful folk dance festival by troupes from different parts of India. The full ceremony is centred around India gate at Rajpath, New Delhi!

So keeping this theme in my mind I am representing a 3D model of India Gate with Flag Hosting in easy steps!

I really enjoyed with these floral arrangements and look together with my grassland. I liked how these tiny pebbles from my stash complementing the theme of this beautiful project! So please with the final arrangements!

Hope you really enjoyed this beautiful 3D India Gate model.

Are you ready to dive back into card making, Mixed media or any other creation? I know I am!
         So........I was just in the mood for a Mixed Media project and what would be better to start featuring with some Inspirational Quotations for the whole year to decorate your room! I was Guest Designing for

 How to do:
Here are all 3 panels shown with details!
Firstly. I created my cardboard panel for each quote. One is for the base and one is in window form. I wanted it as a pocket letter style, as you can interchange the quotes or you can add your personal photographs in it easily!

I adhered all the window panels on the base using fevicol. Leave the centre top and inside edges of the window panel unpasted to put the quote panel inside.
Applied Dylusion Paint at the edges with my finger to the window panel and mixed it with white acrylic paint.

Now peel off the upper layer of Decoupage napkin and adhered it on the paper. Be careful while applying decoupage glue to appear any bubbles at the surface. I have applied the different decoupage napkins on all 3 panels.

 Using some stencils and embossing paste I created the BG on all 3 panels, distressed the edges using vintage photo ink to create more depth. Then I applied some Distress crackle clear paint with a brush and let it be dry naturally.

Look at the shine and crackle effects in some close-up pics:

Then I took a natural twig and added a thick wire and wrapped it with double coloured yarn like we did for knitting!

 Take two equal sizes long strip of cardboard. Wrap the brown coloured yarn on equal distance and make a punched hole at the top of the strip and tighten the wire along the hole and twig! Now die cut some flowers and leaf flourishes out of felt.

Die cut a sparrow out of blue coloured felt and stitched it, decorate it with diamond gems and attach the floral wire to create the legs. Adhered the die cut foam nest and the sparrow on the twig.

Adhered all the flowers, handmade flowers and leaf flourishes on the twig. Decorate it with some buttons and attach a tiny bow.

Then I applied Inka gold in different colours on a MDF cut out and decorated the panel with different flowers,  metal floral charm and applied some Inka gold colours on it too! 

On the 2nd panel too, I did some stamping, textures and added a MDF brick cut-outs to create the BG and decorated with some handmade flowers, fillers!

And the last panel is highlighted with loads of textural elements. I added a MDF flourish and embossed it with silver glitter. Attached a resin piece filled with some micro beads and embellished it with flowers, cabochons and some fillers!

Added some beads and pearls at the end! Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
