Elegantly Chic Shadow Box by DT Khushboo

Bonjour Crafters!

This is Khushboo here, back with an Inspiration Post this time. I often do colorful projects and work with color schemes. But for my latest project, I chose a different route. I've created a gorgeous 'Elegantly Chic Shadow Box' in a purely Black-and-Red relationship.


Setting up a shadow box, and further yet, creatively embellishing it is a lot of fun! It brings out the kid in me if nothing else. To arrange every single box/space is very cool! You can spin a different story in every space and yet make it all very cohesive on the whole.


My inspiration for this Shadow Box was Papericious' beautiful paper pack called 'Mi Estilio' - very stylish and extremely elegant. So once I knew what my central theme for the shadow box would be, I started collecting all my related embellishments and creative ideas. The result is as follows:
















A Brief for creating this 'Elegantly Chic Shadow Box':

Shadow boxes come in different shapes and sizes, and with randomly sized inside spaces too. Select the one that appeals to you and get started.Cover the entire shadow box with 2 coats of black gesso (since I'm going with a black-and-red theme). Let it dry thoroughly between and after every coat.

 

Now color the whole box with black acrylic paint and let it dry completely.
Measure the inside box length and width and cut up your pattern paper accordingly.
Ink up the edges of the pattern paper with black and/or red distress inks and start gluing them down however you find them the most complementing.
Don't forget the sides of the shadow box. I've cut strips of pattern paper with random lengths and stuck them. They look dreamy!


Since my theme is 'Elegant and chic', I've embellished my shadow box with all royal-looking stuff like a chair, chandelier, photo frames, etc.
Papericious paper pack also has some beautiful shapes and motifs related to the theme like nail paint bottles, quotes, compact, lipstick, mascara, etc. I've used some of them here - on the front panel.


Finally, I've added glitter stickers like hearts and arrows on the floor of every space so as to not make it gaudy and yet maintain the elan.

  • Shadow Box

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

Mixed Media Wall Art Tutorial by DT Kriti Mishra


Namaste everyone!!


I am Kriti Mishra and I am very excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari design team, and this is my first post. Heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and entire Rainbow Crafykari team for this opportunity. 

Today, I am here with a tutorial post. I have made a mixed media wall art and here's a sneak peak





Let's begin


1. Firstly take a watercolor paper, cover it with clear gesso and dry it with the heat gun.




2. After that take a regular tissue paper, crush it between your hands and tear it in small pieces. Now paste these small pieces over the paper (in a random manner) to make the first layer of texture, and prime it with white heavy gesso (apply gesso with a spatula to create an interesting texture). Now randomly add some thread to further create texture and cover it with gesso. Completely dry it with a heat gun.




3. Spray some water on the surface and spray the colours. Let them move around and blend. Stop when you get the desired shade.



4. After that use any background stamp ( I have used bubble stamp) to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open spaces.



5. Now embellish it in any way you like ( I embellished it with some burlap string, flowers, glass beads and sequins). Lastly, adorn it with a beautiful quote or a sentiment (I distressed the edges with distress ink). And its all done.
