Name Boards I created recently for our new Home!!!

Today, Am sharing two Quilled name boards that I created for our new Home. This is my first attempt at Quilling typography.

The first one, I wanted to keep it simple bcoz it is to be kept out on the door. I wanted to make it look masculine but yet wanted to keep it Bright. While chatting with my Blogger friend Manu, she gave me a suggestion to use Red and Yellow. It turned out pretty good. No flowers, No Glitters....

My Lil one saw that and she asked me whats written in that(She is 2 n a half n she identifies very few alphabets). As I told her, its her dad's name, She immediately asked me Where is the one with my name. So I had to create one to hang on her Room door.  After I quilled her name, I placed a lil girl sticker. Then she demanded me to add everything she likes like Butterfly, Angry birds, Kitty, Car, Train,Winnie the Pooh, Teddy bear, Stars, Heart.... And it went so on and I stopped the list when there was no more space left in the Board.

Entering this into the following challenges:
1. Itsy Bitsy challenge - For the Kids
2. Crafters corner - Anything goes

 Hope you all like it.

A simple Layout - Mixed Media!!!

I created this Layout with Mixed Media technique.... Recently, Had been reading so much about this through Crafters corner Blog and Color conception challenges, I just wanted to try one. I didnt follow a specific tutorial from them. But I had used techniques from everyone whichever I could imply on mine.

Here is the Layout

I gave it textures with Pattern papers, Sakura's modelling paste, Sakura's Gesso, Laces. Colored them with Imagination crafts Inkadink Spray Inks and Mansi's Mistries(Have only 2 colors of them).

A Simple Mixed media Tag !!

I sometimes spend my time in the craft room just doing random things like distressing a piece of paper, coloring some digitally printed image, try stamping with my unused stamps.... Two days back,I wanted to try using the new Sakura Gesso and Modelling paste I recently bought.

I tried inking, applying gesso and then used the modelling paste to create a texture. When I looked at that finally, It looked like a tag. So, Embellished the piece, added a sentiment and converted it into a Tag. 

This is the final result:

Entering this tag into the following challenges:
