A Paint Brush Holder !!

Hello Friends ,

Am in the process of arranging my Craft room . Its a clutter :) !! ( Am sure we all have clutter on i our desk )
I never tend to get my things I want in this mess . So I Finally decided I have to give a place for all my Goodies.! First a place for my brushes  ! <3

 I had old Milkmaid tin with me which I had decided to alter it to a holder !!

 I am a Self taught Artist  !! I was at awe with the way wooden articles were transformed using decoupage papers .. Now I didnt have a clue as to how i can go about it :) Ha..Its Youtube to my rescue !!
Watched numerous videos and finally thought would give it a try ..

I had the old Milkmaid tin with me and a colourful tissue paper (I didnt use Decoupage napkin nor did i use modpodge ). I went about applying Fevicol around and pasting Tissue paper.. You would have guessed what happened . Yes !! I got a new texture( The Tissue started to stand out as it started sticking to my fingers, brush .. It was a lovely Mess! )  . Was quite heart broken about it .. Then I realised " There is no right or wrong in ART .. Its how u perceive :) "  Viola !! I again went about giving a coat of Golden Acylic. Once it was dry , I decorated it with a lovely lace around its neck. Tied an Orange ribbon around it .

Am a Passionate Quiller , So the flowers and leaves are quilled. A few beads on the centre of the flowers .
Behold ! A beautiful Paint brush holder is ready !!
Hope u Liked my Cute little Holder ..

Thanks for stopping by !!

Bejeweled - Altered Bottle !!

Hello Friends ,

Bejewelled .
Treasured art for your home, or a unique gift for someone special!

In the new project I have altered a Beer Bottle . I really went over board with the stones and Buttons and Laces to get the Bejewelled look :)

I want to confess that it was an experiment . I wanted to try whether Gesso will adher to bottles .
I watched loads of tutorials and finally gave it a try  .
I got third time lucky . Yippee !!!

Gesso can be adhered to glass bottles  . It needs to be mixed with Glue - Fevicol.

I havnt taken any pics as I wasnt sure whether it will come out the way I wanted it ..

First I started with sponging Gesso onto the bottle . Gave Multiple layers of it  . Sponging , why not Brushing  ?? Sponging gives a unique texture which I liked  :)  Once it was dried up , I gave a coat of acrylic colour ( Potrait Pink ) to it randomly and not evenly coated.

I Just Love Laces . I go crazy with them and have hoarded a few . I took out one of them and stuck it around the bottle. I tied a lacy ribbon over it and made it to a bow . The Base and the neck also has been covered with laces . You can see the Big Red Button adhered on the Lacy Bow. Butterfly has been stuck on a spellbinders dies cut - shapeabilities. Below the Butterfly you can see a Silver sparkling branch kind on which it is sitting, its a Earring of mine which I made it flat :)

Then I started decorating the bottles with handmade flowers . These are punch flowers and not die cuts . I have put lots of butterflies and dragonflies along with it .Next I added strings with stones embedded , to give the Jewel look to the Bottle on the whole .

 You can see a Big Gem like Button sitting on the mouth of the Bottle..!!

The Key is the Focal point .Its also altered by sticking Stone strings around it .. .
I just Loooved the way it has come up ..

Hope you like it too  !!

Decoupage Tissue Box !!

Hello Friends ,

Now Facebook is one place where we see numerous art forms / techniques.
One caught my attention for long . Its a page Yelling Yellow by Divya Thallop
Exquiste, Glam , eye catching boxes which she creates using the technique called Decoupage.

Decoupage (or d├ęcoupage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf and so on .

I kept on looking it for long wishing I could do it. Art is something which can be learnt from tutor or can be learnt from experimenting on your own .
Now I love to experiment. I started looking at the tute on decoupage and facebook page of Divya Thallop who has shown ways of doing it in her pages too .

I saw my friend Nandini come up with lovely trays from the classes she attended .

Finally with her help I Decoupaged a tissue box and loved the way it has come up..

The MDF box  was from a local store near my house .
Patterned Paper is from Itsy Bitsy - Bangalore ( My dear Nandini got it for me  :)   )

Hope you liked it  !!
