BGC#66 Mixed Media with Shubhra

                                                         Hey Friends!

This month's challenge is on Mixed media. It's a topic that you can go on and on about, something which actually has no limits , whatever you own in your craft supplies can be used in one way or the other to create mixed media art. De-stash your trims, bits of papers, paints, shimmer, mdf, unsued flowers, homemade modelling paste and yeah create something !

I am sharing a mixed media layout and tag that I did for my husband , I wanted to gift him a few things and decided to make a tag for each to add a personal touch.

This was tagged to a shirt so I used Mellisa Frances hanger to add a small 6x6 inch mixed media layout, I have used Lindy's and gesso on this one.

And that's my wrapped up shirt, with some dry flowers form my favorite L'Occataine !

The other one is a jumbo tag wrapped pretty on two magnets that I did for him.

                          This one has stenciling with modelling paste, Lindy's mist and gesso.

I hope these inspire you to come up with something to participate in our challenge, until 31st Mar. Please read the rules and link your creations here.

BGC# 65 - Mood board + stamping with Shubhra

                                                                    Hey Peeps

I am so excited to be sharing the first ever post for Beyond Grey Challenges. I was so glad when I was asked to join this team of wonderfully talented ladies and instantly grabbed the opportunity to share some of my projects with you all, try to inspire and mostly get a lot more inspiration while creating with some wonderful crafters out there. 

With that, let me continue with the current challenge and remind you once again to hop over and share your creations going with the current mood board+ stamping challenge, if you haven't already done so. You have until 28th of Feb to startle us with some awesome creations.

I have a file folder to share for the current challenge. I have drawn inspiration from the colors of the cake, the overall whimsical feel and flowers from the dress !  

                              The tag is stamped 'hello'. I have a very cute princess shoe at the top too !

                                      The lady cameo is surrounded by a rhinestone jacket .

                                                              Here is a full view

The file folder goes on to a girl turning 16, I am so happy with it that I am planning to make a lot more of these for all lil girls in the family. They are fun and I can't stop thinking how chic they would look for someone carrying them to their school ! 

Hope this leaves you with some inspiration to try something new and come up with lovely creations that you can link here

BGC# 65 - Mood board + stamping once more with Aneta

Dear followers!

My inspiration is the last one while the challenge for this month. I've seen a lot amazing projects on your blogs already and I'm looking forward to see more!
You have still time to join us! And remember about our mood board and rules:

  • Make a paper crafted project taking inspiration from the above mood board . 
  • Your post must mention how or what elements inspired you for your project. 
  • Your project must have some sort of stamping done on it. Make sure its visible in your pictures .
  • Your project must be new and must have been made after our challenge announcement 
  • Deadline to enter -  28th Feb 2015 until 11:55 PM IST .

As my friends and family members have their birthday now,  I'm creating cards for them. This is one of these cards. I was inspired by delicate yellow and green colours from our mood board this time.  I used one stamp to make a sentiment and the second to stamp... the flower. 

Sometimes I make my own flowers, sometimes I just buy them.  If it's the last option, I choose white flowers, because it gives me possibility to change their colours by misting, inking or stamping. This way I have perfect flowers for my projects.  

If you decide to join us, enter your project HERE.
Have a nice day!
