gift bag

It was so funny today.  I was cleaning my craft room, and it came to pretty respectable condition when I saw these spring collection papers. and in no time my desk was a mess again.
anyways the result is very soothing and pleasant, so I dont mind the mess.

I used the handmade flowers, ( my mom made the crochet one).

Frosted design recycle challenge

 Hello crafters,
I am here with a simple recycled project that I made for my daughter to keep her cotton balls.

I  recycled a Tosoitos jar . then added a burlap layer to cover it. On it goes a kind of mesh that came with flowers on Valentines day. then added some bells ( from lots junk jewelry). Flower is handmade using old cloth strip . Little butterfly , heart and small beads are all collected over the years from my  girls broken bracelets.
I colored the lid and and secured the beads on the lid by making a hole in the lid, and fastening the nail and hot gluing it.

gift bag - quick photo tutorial

I am so excited to post my first photo tutorial.  I upcycled this solid blue gift bag.

 First I painted the bag with foam , dabbing to get some texture. Then added the chord to make twines.


then using a hard tooth brush, added some paint splatters in black , white and pink to give some more  dimensions.  Further added some more pink swirls using my pastels.    
                                                   Then added flowers, butterflies and leaves , punched lace , a thank you tag to finish the bag.

Challenge --

I have used die cut flowers .

Hope you like my first attempt to photo tutorial.Thanks for taking your time out.

Love -- canvas art

hello All,
I struggled with this canvas  a lot. I started with blue and yellow but somehow finally got very green jungle effect. Then toned down the colors with gesso , did some doodling here and there, and some red splatter . I think finally it looked fine. Please give your honest opinions.

Here are few closeups--
