Hello My dear crafty friends there!!!
I'm pavitra here and welcome to rainbow craftykari’s blog. Our first challenge“ Revamp your Scrap is up on the blog and details can be find out here.
For today I have a chocolate tray (which I got with a wedding invite) revamped into a home décor piece.
Have a Look
For this altered piece I used prima’s newly launched waxes and patina effect paste and I really enjoyed working with them. They are super easy to work with and instantly glam up any project.
I removed the cloth covering and Cut chip board sheet in the shape of huts and placed them next to each other. For adding more texture, I covered them up with MDF, lace, corrugated sheet and metal embellishment.
For the tree I soaked gauge in Sculpting medium and placed it on right side corner of the tray in the form of tree. Next I Placed mulberry flower and broken clay embellishment on the branches of tree.
Placed metal butterfly next to the tree.
Once the entire placement is done, gave the entire tray few coats of black gesso.
Later I dry brushed art alchemy antique brilliance wax – amethyst randomly on the entire frame. After that I dry brushed blue and green paste from finnabair patina effect paste randomly on the entire frame and finish off with few strokes of brass paste from finnabair patina effect paste.
Die cut word – home and sponged it with art alchemy – antique brilliance red amber and pasted with glue as shown.
Hope you have fun going through the post.

Roshini here from roshinis crafts. A very warm welcome in this cool winter here at Rainbow Craftykari. I am so glad and happy to be in this platform as Guest designer. My heartfelt thanks to Maninder Kaur and the team. I have a mini mixed media canvas to share with you today.
It turned out as I expected and I hope any mixed media lover will adore it.
Here is few simple steps how I made it…
Size of canvas is 6 by 4 inches, I used white sand texture paste from Prima marketing and some cotton thread placed randomly on it. This is how I created my texture background.
Here comes the hero of the project, Guess what?? Used and almost squeezed Colgate tooth paste tube, added some flowers and MDF scrolls at the top right corner.
I used Prima marketing heavy body gel to hold the embellishments, resin frame, wings, etc. Then gave a coat of heavy black gesso from Prima marketing.
Now comes the magic of colouring with my all time favourite Lindy's stamp gang sprays. Here I used Button blue, Rizzo's rowdy red and Sandradee sepia. At last I dry brushed with Inka gold-old gold.
And finally I added the bulb from Prima marketing with the word Inspire on it. (My inspiration post here and no doubt I was inspired by my Colgate tooth paste.)
I hope you liked my mixed media canvas.
