March Inspirations By Jaya Rahuvanshi

Hello Everyone!
This is Jaya here with you all.
Today I have a few projects to share with you.
 A mixed media canvas and a layout.

I had been wanting to make a mixed media canvas something like this for so long. 
When I got these chippies in my DT pack, I knew I could go ahead.

These dream catcher chippies are so gorgeous and intricate. It was fun to create 
this canvas with them.

Some close-ups-

Look at that intricate pattern! Isn't it gorgeous? 

I applied some white acrylic paint to my chipboard pieces and once it was dry I mixed 
some glitter with soft matt gel and randomly applied it to the chipboards. Next was
 adding some DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Gold and champagne ice. They look 
absolutely amazing after this treatment! 

On this particular piece I added some embossing enamel and
micro-beads for added texture.

Love that 'Dream loopy font' chippie. I have loads of navy blue glitter on it 
coupled with highlighting with DecoArt champagne ice metallic lustre paint.

The moon like chipboard that you see here is actually a left over from 
Circular leafy frame chipboard. I love how beautifully it mimics moon. I
 painted it with Gold DecoArt metallic lustre paint.

"Amaze Yourself"
For my next project I wanted to make something depicting nature in the raw form. 
So I decided to create something that was  highly textured using just  the shades 
of greens and greys.

 The wonderful chippies from 2Crafty made this possible. I just love those gorgeous 
Anchors and Shrub chippies. Aren't they the most gorgeous and intricate pieces 
to add to your beach/sea theme pages? 
 Have a look at the page-

Some close-ups-

I wanted to keep raw look of the chippies but at the same time add some colour and shine. 
So I coloured my chipboard pieces with some brown watercolour pastels and once it was 
dry I added some liquid gold sparkle sparingly to them. Have a look.

I also did some doodling on my anchor chippie to make the lines stand out after
 colouring. The shrubs and leaves were first embossed with dark green and teal embossing
 powders and later I added a hint of yellow at places. It gave them the perfect natural
 look I was aiming for. 

2Crafty Chipboards used-

Lavendar shrubs
Thistle shrubs
Bubble clumps
Amaze yourself

  That is all from me today. I hope you were inspired with these projects.
See you again soon!
