Mixed Media Gift envelopes

Hello Creative friends! My blog has been quiet for almost entire month! Took a break from crafting but could not stop myself when I received LSG prize package, new Magical Shakers! Had to try them all, created many Mixed media Cash Envelopes.
(The colors look slightly different  as I could not get proper lighting )


All of them are more or less similar (batch processing!).Started by creating plain envelopes from smooth cardstock, a coat of gesso, followed by texture paste and then fun part, magical shakers!  Only after few trails I could guess the quantity of powder needed to get desired shade. That is why some of the backgrounds are very dark and some very light! Sharing the pictures along with products used.

Chicks in school!


 He he... I am not letting the chicks go anywhere so soon! One of them is turning 4 today, good reason to learn the number in Math class! I stamped Mr. Cool, the teacher on water color paper and fussy cut him.Stamped only the outlines of chicks, rest of the scene is hand-drawn. Used leftover paper scraps for black board and trees.


I colored the chicks with pencil colors first, they looked very dull so added some more color using colored pens.
Let us see if the chicks were successful in wishing their friend.


Mission accomplished !! The chicks are from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs and sentiment from the big ,the bold and Happy  (W & W).

Floral Shaker card


Sharing a small(4*4),floral shaker card today.

The flower is from In Bloom-Addie's Garden(W & W).I often tend to put a lot of pigment while coloring and lose the beautiful effect of transparent watercolors! I controlled myself this time:) I did use more color for shadows in the end but avoided using white color pencil for highlights.


I dashed lines on white panel are from Scenery: Stripes . Sentiment from the big, the bold and Happy.

Inspired by Pop Art !


A rock makeover to this cute bird from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs (W&W), stamped them on different paper scraps and paper pieced them.


Had fun mixing & matching them! Arranged them in a grid Pop Art Style! Used Scenery : Stripes (W&W) for the grid.


The sentiment is from Big, the Bold and You.

Left over birds get to stage on bookmarks.
 Can you guess what do they say? (hint : lines)
Reading between the lines !
Next one is based on a fond memory of my friend holding a seat for me in bus everyday.

Holding for ya !
and the last one..
