Ganesha Diwali Home Decor Piece Tutorial by GDT Vinita Jain

Hello Everyone!

Happy October!

This is a month of the festive season and Diwali is my most favorite festival, so there is no question about what I love to create with the Mixed Media projects!

You can surprise your guests and visitor this Diwali with your own handmade creation, no need to buy from the market now!

Today I want to show you my new MM project on coming festive occasion
And to inspire for this month challenge "Lights & Celebrations".



And here it goes.............!!!!!!

I converted a piece of plywood into a magical wall decor art. I coated it with Plaster of Paris with the textured look.




Give a new life to Lord Ganesha by using any kind of pearl colors.





Happy with the results using Fevicryl Pearl colors, Terracotta and Old gold Inka Gold!




Now time to create a background scene for Lord Ganesha.


Using air dry clay and a mould I made some embellishments to decorate and let it dry them for a full day.





Now given a coat of gesso to all of them. Don't worry about some cracks because they are very delicate, it will hide with some embellishments:) Fixed metal holders to hang the decor piece.



Applied fevicol and sealant to paste them all.




Die cut lots of different flowers and leaves out of Iris paper, perfect for flower making using Iris sheet.



Soak the flowers and leaves in the water bowl for a minute and inked them using distress inks.



Shaped them using golf groove tool and embossing pad as shown in the pic, perfect for textures and details.






Now time to create the background. Misted the piece with different color splashes. Firstly I started with turquoise color mist bottle at all 4 corners with the height of 4 or 4.5" gap. Then misted with midnight blue, not on the middle part because I wanted the Ganesha to highlighted in sunbursts color effect! Then misted with dirty pink near the pillars. After that misted with chalk ultramarine and golden canary. You will easily achieve the same results as shown in the pic.


Now rubbed all the white part using old gold and turquoise Inka gold to highlight the detailing work as shown in the pic. And applied a little bit at the surface and chippies too!


Here are some close-ups for the detailing work:



Rub some Inka gold on the metal charm OM word. Paste it on the tea holder and embellished it with some gemstones.



Now embellished the whole piece with my own handmade flowers and few rhinestones, gems. See the details in close-ups clearly!





And covered the backside with the corrugated sheet attached a heart-shaped border at the bottom.

Here is the finished project and ready to hang on the wall. I am really happy that this time I will decorate my Pooja place with my own wall decor piece!!! 😊





Isn't it gorgeous at all!!!

Love- Photo Frame by DT Mounika

Hello everyone,

I am Mounika and I am so happy to be on Rainbow Craftykari Blog with my Inspiration Post.


Everyone loves to treasure memories in a special way, and if those memories are with our kids they are all the more special! To treasure such special memories with my son who will turn 3 this August, I  made this frame.



To begin with, using Papericious black gesso I primed the frame. I then traced down the shape of the frame on a piece of pattern papers and cut it. I have used the Aazealian paper stack from Papericious's latest collection. I then stuck down the pattern paper and cut down the extras. To add some texture I used a bubble stencil with texture paste. Once it was dry I took small pattern papers and roughly arranged them. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I glued everything down. For the embellishments, I used a chipboard heart coloured using blue and yellow chalk paint. On the yellow hearts, I added glitter.



The main focal flower was made using Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and then shaped, the "love" sentiment embellishment was coloured using Prima Art Alchemy waxes. I used the same on the frame as well to highlight the texture at places. 


Here are some close ups:

Namaste Friends!!

I am Kriti and I am back with a new project and this is an inspiration post. A layout with some bright colours titled "This is my dream". A dream leads to hope, this is a dream of a wish to come true and all we have is hope.

Here's a brief about this project:

To start with, I have taken a wooden plank (Size is 10" x 8") and affixed a few chipboard rectangular pieces on the right-hand side to make a wall and gauge on the left-hand side. Then covered the entire surface with gesso.

Next, I have used a bubble stencil to make the background more interesting using modelling paste and covered the entire surface with gesso again. Next, I have added this beautiful Dreamcatcher chipboard and few beads and again covered the surface with gesso.

After that, I used spray colours i.e., yellow, orange and red(Spray some water too to let them run). I then used gold, copper and black colour to highlight the textures. I then used few stamps, text, brick and music notations to make it more interesting.

Lastly, I embellished it with some coloured gauge, flowers, and a beautiful song lyrics.

Altered Wall Art Tutorial By DT Priya Mishra

Hello Crafty Friends,

Priya here today with a detailed pictorial tutorial for a Mixed media Wall art. Mixed media is always fun and I enjoy a lot creating different textures and I'm showing how to get different textures on your project here today with simple little things from your stash.

Take a look at the final outcome:



Let's start the tutorial:

Step:1 I altered a square shaped MDF board, which actually was a cake base. You can take any size of a board. Here's the base:


Step 2: I gave a thick coat of white heavy gesso on the base. Once it was dry I gave another coat.



Step 3: Next, I created some texture.Here you can see, on the lower part of the board, I glued some crumpled tissue paper and also attached lace.



Step 4: At this point, I created some texture with the help of a stencil on the left side. As you can see my son also helped me in this.



For quick drying, I used the heat tool.



Step 5: Then, on the right side of the lace on upper part, I applied some texture paste and tried some random texture using my quilling comb.



A dotted tool for some more texture here and there.



Step 6: After drying, I started adding embellishments randomly. I added flowers, chipboards, resin and metal embellishments and glued them all with a glue gun.





Step 7: Then I added a few Big and small pearls, Art stones and sprinkled seed beads.


Step 8: Then I started adding colours. Here I used acrylic colours. I mixed Pink and yellow colours to get this colour and at the lower side I added black pearl acrylic colour.



This is how it looked when finished. This photo was taken at night after I finished, so the picture isn't very clear.


Here are a few close ups of the project.


















Supplies Used:

  • MDF Board/ Chipboard
  • Art Basic Heavy gesso
  • Rangers Texture Paste
  • Tim Holtz Stencil
  • Rangers Heat Tool
  • Hot Glue gun
  • White glue
  • Tissue Paper
  • Lace
  • Papericious Chipboard
  • Chipboards
  • Resin frame
  • Metal Charm
  • Flowers
  • Pearls
  • Seed Beads
  • Acrylic Paints
