Altered Embroidery Hoop Tutorial by GDT Rashmi Tater

Hello Dear crafters,

 

This is Rashmi Today. Wishing u a very bright morning!

 

I say so because I got a real a real bright project to share with u guys! THANKS TO THE TEAM RCS and Maninder for the opportunity. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this super hardworking team! Kudos to all of you for your efforts!

 

For long, Altered Embroidery hoop was in my to do list so I combined an old handkerchief and the hoop  into a totally bright thanking goodie (trust me no one will ever find out what it was before!)

 

So let’s begin, grab your supplies and let your imaginations fly!

 


Firstly fit the handkerchief in the hoop and secure with backing ring, trim of the excess from behind. (Please Note: You can take any size of Embroidery hoop)

 


Coat the entire with prima heavy gesso from the Mixmedia essentials kit (front and back) and allow drying. Until then grab your supplies.


 

I used some broken clay embellishments I made using prima mould. (Supplies pic attached)

  

 

 

Then stencil the hoop using Prima modeling paste from the Prima MixMedia essentials kit and cover the heart with gesso and metal beads.

Tip : You can use a mix of talcum powder to your gesso to create a quick texture paste.

 


Now it’s time to make a layout use multi medium gel from cinnabar projects. It perfectly sticks; glue gun can be used for the thermacol heart
Tip: You can use fabric glue for the adherence,if you are running out of Multi Medium Gel.

 

 

I used a thank u tag too (as this is a gift for a dear friend) and I also have added a fussy cut butterfly. (I love it all white too: P)


 

Then spray with the colors of your choice loads of options are available in the store. Remove the excess color by wet wipes. 

 



 

Glorious butterfly. U can highlight with shimmer and glossy accents.

 

 

Finally the Full Reveal.

 


Mix media is all about playing around. Let your heart lead you to creating something new each time. You will start with scrap and end up with beauty in your hand. 

 

Get inspired with things around you and try to make your own version of mixmedia artwork (difficult to get same set of supplies anyways ) but I surely know we crafters are big time hoarders and will definitely have loads of things we are saving for a future project just use a few each time from your treasure be it broken pendants to old keys . Just mix and match, play around and you’ll see just like me you will fall in love with Mix media.

Floral Explosion Box by GDT Karthikha

Hello Crafty Folks,

 

I'm excited as I get you an inspirational project for this month's challenge - Exploding Surprise! Do check out the challenge post for all the rules and guidelines.

 

Direct on to my creation! I wanted to do an explosion box that will suit any occasion, be it birthday, anniversary, love, etc. So the best option was floral! I've used all the colors from the color palette for the challenge. The different shades are seen in the patterned papers and flowers used.

I started by creating the 3 layers with pockets to hold the tags. I have a mix and match of patterned papers from Papericious and other brands to suit the color theme. The middle 3d object is a small box filled with flowers. This can be used to hold tiny gift items too! A surprise inside a surprise J For the inserts, I have die cut scallop stitched circles and rectangles. The big circle tag has a mini flower brad attached along with pink satin ribbon. The middle insert is a rectangle die cut, which has a holder in the form of a flower. For this, I’ve punched out 2 flowers and attached them back to back with the tag sandwiched in between. The small circle tag has a pearl string attached to hold it.

For the lid of the box, I have used a chipboard element colored white with gesso. I kept it white to pop against the pink background. I’ve then added flowers matching the color palette











 

Here is a small video to show you the box in real!
