Decoupage Organiser by Riddhi Jani, featuring Meadows Paper Collection

Hello everyone,

This is Riddhi and I’m here to share my new project made for Bob n Betty. I’m not a decoupage artist but wanted to try my hands on this beautiful art….so I made this MDF Organizer with Bob n Betty’s Meadows paper collection. And I must admit that I’m falling in love with this art form, probably because I’m working with the decoupage papers of finest quality.

Over to the project now…have a look and do share your feedback 🙂

Much Love,
Riddhi

Decoupage Bottle by Tanvi, featuring DecoPatch Papers

Hello crafty souls!

This is Tanvi, back with my love – DECOUPAGE & DECOPATCH PAPERS.

These papers are very thin & blend easily into the background to give a seamless finish. I wanted to use these papers on a curved surface like a bottle. The papers are 50gsm, just perfect for use on such surfaces too. I fussy cut the gorgeous lady (Floral Adornments) & decoupaged her over on the BIRDS & BUTTERFLIES background paper. Do you see how easily she blends over the background!

For some dimension I covered the lady with glossy accents & the glass like look was hard to capture on camera.

Jul18010

I covered the neck of the bottle with crackle paste & once dry rubbed metallique wax paste for a subtle metallic sheen.

Jul18002

Added some dangling resin embellishments too –

Cute Baby Mixed Media Card Designed by Preeti Datta

Hi folks!
Good Morning 🙂
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you doing ?

Today, I’d like to share a Cute Baby Mixed Media Card. This is a big sized card great for gifting. I’ve used the beautiful and totally adorable papers from Bob n Betty’s earlier collections, “Cuddling Cuties” and “Baby Bliss“. All of Bob n Betty’s paper collections have been brilliantly designed, so, it is very easy to mix and match papers from different collections, go back to the earlier releases and mix them with new ones. Sky is the limit with respect to matching elements and coming up with new combos 🙂

Decoupaged Book Box by Jaanhvi Hinduja, featuring DecoPatch Papers

Hello all you fabulous people!
I hope most of you’d be out of the lethargic summer break and looking forward to the rains…I love the return of routine and normal life after the holiday craziness. The idea of a fresh start and setting new goals is so energising for me! This season, I’ve decided to declutter my home and organise the necessities with my DIY projects – follow me for the projects, ideas and tips 🙂
We are living in a world of gadgets and so many remote controls around the living room stresses me out. I don’t find them pleasing to look at and prefer them hid when not in use. So…my first project after the holidays is a large sized book shaped box to stack all of them.
I’ve used the ‘Old World Charm’ paper from the DecoPatch series for this box. Ive made a faux leather effect on the spine of the box to complement the rustic look of the print. Here are the steps if you’d like to make one for yourself:
1. Prime the entire box. Sand and clean nicely.
2. Take pieces of kitchen tissues and crumble them and stick on the spine using watered down modpodge. Allow wrinkles to come.
3. Paint this with light brown acrylic. Add several layers of colours going from lighter to darker and finally blackish using dry brush technique.
4. Paint the insides and back.
5. Created book pages texture on the sides using texture paste and fork. Painted with several shades of brown (watered down) and kept wiping, allowing the paint to seep through the crevices.
5. Decoupage the front lid with the chosen paper. My paper was smaller in length than the box so I tore the bottom edges with hand and stuck. Painted the lid overlapping the paper with a matching shade of acrylic. Stamped vintage script on the painted part and randomly over some other parts, so that the whole thing comes together.
6. Distressed the edges with brown acrylics.
7. Finished with some laser cut embellishment, metal key hole and gold chipboard for the spine. I painted all embellishments with the same brown as I used on the edges and then rubbed some antique gold wax onto them.
I’ll be making one more with the left over paper to organise stacks of bills on my table 🙂
Hope you like the project. I’d love to hear:)
Love,
Jaanhvi

A Decoupaged Box by Ruchika Gupta, featuring DecoPatch Papers

Hi folks,

Today I bring to you all a decoupage project that I hold very close to my heart and hope you all like it.
It is going to be a special gift for my daughter who turns 10 years old in a month’s time.

For the last 2 years I have been promising my little one of making this box for her and finally the minute I saw the designs of the new DecoPatch papers from Bobnbetty, I knew… This was it!!!

The Decopatch papers have the perfect texture for decoupage and are so very easy to use. The thickness of these papers is just right and can be applied on any surface to give a seamless finish to your projects.


All those of you who have seen my earlier piece of work, would know that I am a minimalistic type of person… I like to keep my projects clean and clutter free. I’m not a big fan of fuzzy cuttings, but trust me when I tell you that when you do fuzzy cuttings from any of DecoPatch papers (in this case from the Floral Adornment sheet) and glue them to a different part of the design, they blend into the papers so well that you cannot make out that they were not part of the original design.

For the insides of the box, I have used 2 different papers from the “Cottage Blush” pack. The designs from this pack have the same vintage and shabby chic look and feel and hence go very well together.

To finish the box, I have decorated it with some mulberry flowers and chipboard sentiment. I have also attached a metal butterfly as I think every girl big or small just loves butterflies.

Hope you liked my project and I would love to hear from you. Thanks Deepika for being so patient with me 🙂  and I hope I have done justice with these beautiful papers.

Ruchika 🙂

 

Mixed Media Layout “Memories” Designed by Preeti Datta Featuring Little Wonderland Collection

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Hope you are doing well.

Today, I’d like to share a Mixed Media Layout titled “Memories”.  I was inspired by the cute child’s photo who reminded me of my own niece when she was little. I’ve used papers from the totally adorable “Little Wonderland” Scrapbook Papers Collection. This paper pack is perfect for all children’s themed projects including cards, scrapbooks, canvases, party decorations like banners, gift boxes etc My wonderfully talented team mates and I have shared lots of projects in the past few months using these papers, so I highly recommend you to check those & try out some of the designs & techniques shared 🙂

Process:

  1. One of the papers from the Little Wonderland Collection was taken as the base. It was torn a little from all 4 sides, distressed and darkened with grey ink. Then this was adhered to a 12 by 12 size sheet of heavy white card stock. Stitch stamping was done in the gaps created to give a textured look and add interest to the page.
  2. Clear gesso was applied on the scrapbook paper to prep it for mixed media work. Then light paste was added through a stencil in different areas of the page, to prepare the background and add texture.
  3. To add color to the page, light colors (blue and yellow) of Ink sprays were added, movement was created with drips.
  4. Background stamping was done with grey archival inks.
  5. Photo mats and frames were created with die cuts of papers from the Little Wonderland Collection and white card stock.
  6. Few elements were fussy cut from the Little Wonderland Collection
  7. All the elements for layering were gathered and adhered to the page in a visually pleasing composition. Elements included fussy cut images, sentiments, twines, thread & flowers. To add dimension, some of the elements were adhered with 3d foam tape.
  8. The project was embellished with few buttons & to add additional texture and shine, a mixture of mini & regular art stones, silver sequins & soft matte gel was applied to various places on the page.
  9. In the end, some heavy white gesso was applied to the elements using the dry brushing technique and a few ink splatters were created.

Mixed Media Layout by Niharika Gupta, feat. Decoupage Specialty Papers

Hi dear crafty friends,

I am not a decoupage artist but every time Bob n Betty comes up with a new release in Decoupage specialty papers, my heart skips a beat with the beautiful gorgeous designs. I cannot resist using them in scrapbooks or layouts. And so here I am with a new post, a layout on canvas using a sheet from the new Meadows collection.

I loved the flowers on this paper, and the butterflies are so magical. The moment I saw this design, this photograph was the first thing I thought of. This is one of my favorite pictures from our beach outings and I am so happy with the output.
The decoupage specialty papers are neither too thin, nor too thick and hence they are suitable for all types of projects. I just fussy cut the flowers and butterflies and layered them with minimal embellishments for this layout.
over to the pictures…

I hope you like it and find it inspiring. I am preparing for my summer break now and I hope you all have a crafty summer too.

Love & Hugs, Niharika.

A Baby Pop-Up Album designed by Ashmita Roy, featuring Little Wonderland Paper Collection

Namaste Guys

As you all know I am a Guest Designer for Bob n Betty and they have some yummilicious collection of stuff. I was sent this amazing collection called “Little Wonderland” and the first thing that popped in my head was a ” POP-UP” album!! you have to see the collection to know that it has so much potential, the colour scheme is not only perfect for a Baby Themed Album but the variety of images and die-cuts in the collection made it so so much easier for me to design this album.

The collection is very well thought and its an absolute thrill to work with it. there are a lot of images you can fussy cut and use and there are tags and sentiment tabs as well. All in all its very good quality paper that you enjoy working with.

To be honest it did take me a while to plan, design and then finally put together this album. Whats more since Deepika is such a darling I have had the opportunity to design this as a Video tutorial Class which is available for purchase on my site Art Some Craft.

Since the collection had such fun images I was easily able to create different scenes and pop-up elements. The book looks like a storybook or a baby room come to life although i do say so myself.

The Album has 6 individual pages 12 front and back, each page has a unique pop-up feature with different technique and mechanism. I have had so much creating this book. I have taken away the guess work and the hard work that goes into planning and designing something like this. You will realise that making Pop-ups is not that difficult once you have the instructions and the measurements and  all the hardwork already done for you.

So, without further ado here is the Album….

Here is the flip through of this album

Happy Crafting
