Altered Glass and Altered Photo Frame Tutorial By GD Vinita Jain


Hello Everyone,

This is Vinita here, I am delighted to be guest designing this month with Rainbow Craftykari Store. Today, I'll be teaching two projects Mixed Media Altered Projects.

Let's Begin

In this project, I have added a gift with the Photo Frame, so this is a bonus project for all of you. I altered a glass container which has a lid into this beautiful decor piece!!!


Now let me show the steps how I created this MM altered art!


Step 1.

Take any plastic container, clean it properly from any stains or dust particles and dry it. Now apply spray paint on it. But for precaution keep the container in any box/carton and cover the glass with the spray paint. You can wear gloves too. Now let it dry for half an hour or little more.


Step 2:

I used different types of embellishments in this creation. In a picture frame, silicon mold using clear glue sticks and heat glue gun filled this mold.

Let it dry, hardly took 15 minutes. If you don't have glue gun and sticks you can also use dry clay which can be easily molded into any shape you wanted. Here I used it for a 3D baby mold, cover the space tightly as shown in the picture. Let it dry in the air, took one hour to dry properly.


Step3:

Now take out these embellishments from the mold carefully. Time to color them I used some alcohol inks, Fevicryl Pearl colors, some Inka gold from Viva in different colors.


Step 4.

The Inka Gold colors are so versatile you can apply them on any embellishment, it can even be diluted in water too. Here as shown in the pic, I first applied Gesso on all these embellishments using sponge, then the impact of color will be more bright and if you use black Gesso, it will create different textures. On the metal embellishments, I used a spray, Inka Gold, alcohol inks and burnished them with gold color for detailing work after drying. Even I applied Gesso to my trims to make them little thicker and applied different inks.

I applied Gesso on bamboo sticks and one of the pencil too.


Step 5:

On the glass container to create textures, I give it a coat of gesso and using a comb created a wood panel look. Now burnished the different mediums to highlight the details as shown in the pic.


Step 6:

Now start embellishing it. Using my glue gun I attached all the embellishments easily.


I added lots of different paper flowers, blings, jewel stones, fillers and added a sentiment too which I covered it with Inka Gold mediums. Now using tacky glue gel I spread crystal clear sparkle too.


This is the top, I covered it with a lace, pearl string, a beautiful trim butterfly and other embellishments.


Here is the Final pic!


Here is the Video I have made of MM Altered Art

Next Project is Altered Photo Frame, giving it a uniqueness and make great gifts!

I love Mixed Media art....Throwing on the layers, textures and just having fun! Blue is my favorite color and I added some gold with lots of blue hues! You will see some of the metal embellishments, chippies, handmade flowers, doilies and stencilling peeking through!




The first thing I covered the chipboard frame with a coat of white gesso. After drying, I applied cheese cloth all over using Mod Podge.


Here what it looks like before adding gesso and sprays. I roughly set up all the things on this frame and took a photo. Now added texture paste using some stencils for textures, Arranged all the embellishments, charms, different flowers, MDF flourishes and many more things according to my need and again applied a layer of gesso.


Now applied lots of layer of different inks, spray, Viva gold, glitters etc. At the bottom layer, I pasted a sequins lace too. For more textures and interest, I added microbeads in two varieties randomly, added a cute tiny heart, jewelled stone at the lamp post. Added a string of pearls inside the edges of photo panel.


Some close ups:



I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful photo frame creation!

Altered Tin Can with Thank You Tag by GDT Anila Dikay

Hello Crafters!


Today at the Rainbow Craftykari blog, I am here to inspire you for the new challenge for the month of May. 

The theme for this challenge is "The Blooms Magic". Checkout the details here.


As an inspiration post, I have two projects here today where I have used the flowers made by me. 

(Please do bear with me as this is a very picture heavy post. But as I wanted to cover each and every side/angle of the project I could not skip adding any of these pictures...Not to mention some close-ups of my blooms.... ;-))




Let's begin with the first one!!!


Project 1 - Altered Tin Can


You can make blooms by taking a square paper and fold it into half and again into half. Now in this folded conical portion cut a heart shape. When the paper unfolds a flower is formed. Make three more such flowers with little varying sizes. Now to assemble the flowers together. Pinch and fold each and every petal of all the four flowers into half. This forms creased effect. Don't be very perfect, The imperfections give it a more natural look. After pinching all the flowers arrange them one over the other in descending form. Lastly add pearls / beads in the center to form the core.

 


I covered the can with a corrugated sheet I received as a packing material. Stuck a white laced burlap ribbon at the bottom and a crochet lace at the top of the can. I made 3 bright colored blooms for this project and covered the center of the blooms with tiny white pearls. Arranged and stuck the blooms on the can and added few leaf die-cuts. Lastly tied a twine around the can and attached a ready tag with a wooden clothespin.

Few more pictures






 My second project is a "Thank you Tag"



I began with stenciling the card with texture paste and covered it all with white gesso. Next, I used color splash and heat set it. I made 3 blooms again for this project (same blooms). This time I covered the center of the blooms with black beads. Added leaf die-cuts and a butterfly. Adhered a heat-embossed sentiment with foam adhesive. Tied two ribbons at the top. Lastly, to cover up the empty spaces I doodled the texture with a black gel pen.

 Few more pictures





I had great fun making these blooms. I hope you too enjoyed my post.


Hoping to see you participate in the challenge and also looking forward to what flowers you all make.


Thank you for dropping by. Do leave your valuable comments below.

Love,

Anila

Decoupage on MDF Box with Easel Card Tutorial by DT Nikkita Sethi

Hello Crafters,

Nikkita here again on India's Best Papercrafting Blog that's Rainbow Craftykari Blog. Hope you all are doing great. Often you want to decoupage the MDF Box with pattern papers but many doubts arises, Today in our Teaching and Learning program, I'm going to share step by step tutorial Decoupage on MDF Box using Pattern Papers. Also I'm going to share one more tutorial on how to prepare an Easel card, which is going to be inside in it and it will become an Wonderful gift to present to your loved ones. It's going to be lengthy post, so sit back and grab your favorite summer drink.

Decoupage Box with Pattern Paper:

Step 1
Take MDF box of 6"x6" size. I have bought mine from Rainbow Craftykari Store. It has good finishing and of highest quality. Clean it completely using fine sand paper. Shake off the dust thoroughly.


Step 2
Apply Light Coat of Gesso to all over the box, Coat only once. Let it dry completely or Heat Dry it using heat tool.


I'm using Prima Rossibelle Pattern paper, so i have picked the color from it, then apply DecoArt Reminisce chalkboard paint using sponge or brush, chalkboard paints give a smooth and neat finish and dries quickly.


Step 3
For 6by6 inches box, have cut the pattern papers into 5.75inches leaves a 0.25 inch gap which shows the background color of the box and distressed the pattern papers with Black soot distress ink or any other ink to give a finished look.

I used mod podge to stick the papers it's a fabulous product for decoupage. Apply Mod Podge in Horizontal and Vertical way so that it get apply evenly on on base and it won't form any bubbles.

Tip: When you'll adhere the pattern paper, before give a one good coat of Mod Podge glue which is sufficient. Than take any clean rough cloth, fold into small rectangle shape and by keeping good pressure of your hand move that cloth piece on to the pattern paper, it will set  your pattern paper.
Stenciled using grey chalkboard paint and if you don't have grey use black and white acrylic paint. I have stenciled inside and outside before and after adhering the pattern papers. Heat Dry it.


For Inside have cut the pattern papers approx 7mm from all four sides. Adhere it using same technique. 


Step 4
Coming to decoration, I have colored the Simple Lattice Chippie from Papericious and other chipboard elements with DecoArt Reminisce ChalkBoard Paint using Sponge brush. To give a brushed look i have Distress them using Black Soot Distress ink. I have even use left over chippies from Simple Lattice to give a unique look. Have adhered them inside and top of the box using glossy accents.


On the top of the cover, I've placed chippies, flowers, Metal Embellishments and die-cuts from the Prima Rossibelle Collection to give symmetrical composition. After that i have adhered them with glossy accents and tacky tape.

Tip: You can take photographs of you composition, It'll help you to make the placements of your decorative products to check the correct composition, Once you're satisfy, adhere them.


Our Decoupage Box is Complete, Keep it aside. Let's move to Card now.


Easel Card Tutorial:

Step 1
Take black cardstock of around 250-300 gsm measuring 5*11inches and score on long side at 2.75" and 5.5".
Pre-fold all score lines.


Step 2
Take another piece of cardstock measuring 5x5.5" and adhere to 2.75" x 5.5" section  as shown using tacky tape,
Remove the Tape liner and adhere the 5x5.5" cardstock piece. Now the card base is ready.

Step 3
For embellishing the card I have used scraps from the collection left while making the box and have cut strips of 0.75" x 5.5" and now stick them randomly using tacky tape , now you can add a die cut and embellish it with the tags from the collection. I have added foam tape at the back to give 3D look. Take a strip of 1.75 *5 inches and add to the inside flap to make a stopper for the card to stand.


Step 4
I have added satin handmade flowers and embellished with diecut leaves using glue gun and glossy accents and added a sentiment in the inside flap to complete the card.


And now the easel card matching the mdf box is ready.
