Decoupaged Clocks by Ashmita Roy, feat. DecoPatch Papers

Namaste guys

This is my first try at decoupage I mean for real. I have done a little bit here and there in my art journal but never a complete project with so many techniques.
I have used the #decopatch papers to create some unique projects. They are very practical and useful and don’t cost a bomb to create a beautiful project.

1. I took some mdf clock bases and used a clean old makeup sponge and painted with white gesso. I have them 3 coats.
2. Then I fussy cut the paper to my liking and requirement and sprayed the pieces with water.
3. I used mod podge to adhere the paper to my bases.
4. I used some stencils and modelling paste to create the desired patterns.


5. After the modelling paste was dry, I sanded it down with some fine grain sand paper.
6. Next using some chalk paint and sponge I coloured over the areas without the paper.
7. Then I used inka gold and rubbed with my finger and buffed using a wet wipe. To get the distressed effect.

Decoupaged Box by Deepal Shah, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hello Crafty peeps,
Deepal here and today I am sharing with you the keepsake box which I made with Roseatte decopatch papers by Bob n Betty. These are totally my favourite papers to work with.
I started tearing with hand, the required design from these Roseatte decopatch papers. Then I decoupaged the torn design on already gessoed MDF box.
Next, I started building up colours on the box. I generally prefer to use the shades of colours from the papers used for the project. So in this project I have used hues of pink, green, cream, white and blended them to give desired effects followed by stencilling.
Once dried, I splattered some darker shades of the same hues of colours used with toothbrush in some areas. Lastly I added few embellishments. Sentiments were taken from Roseatte decoupage double sided scrapbook paper pack.
Totally loved the outcome of this vintage keepsake box and hope you all will like it too. I shall catch up with you all soon with my next creation, till then Happy Crafting…
Best regards,
Deepal Shah

Decoupaged Cultlery Holder by Ruchika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch papers

Hello once again my crafty friends,

This is Ruchika from Caterpillar Designs with a new project that I am happy to showcase today. This time I decided to work on a cutlery stand using fuzzy cut elements from the ROSEATE – DECOPATCH papers by Bob n Betty.

When I started, I did not have a fixed image in my mind as to how the project would turn out. Instead I just let myself experiment with different textures and paints to see how the final outcome would be. And I must say I was quite happy with the end result.

Process:

  1. The first step is to choose the elements you would like to work with.
  2. Sand the cutlery holder well to make it smooth.
  3. The entire holder is then painted dark brown.
  4.  Use 2 step crackle medium on top of the brown. You can use One Step Crackle Medium as well if you like.
  5. Once dried, paint the outside portions of the holder with white, off-white  or beige color chalk paint as per requirement depending upon what type of look you want.
  6. To give it a shabby distressed look, sand the holder lightly until you get the desired look. Dry brush the edges and a give some strokes on the holder with dark brown or black paint so as to give a distressed look.
  7. Paste the fuzzy cut elements on to the holder at the desired areas.
  8. Use modpoge to seal the paper elements.
  9. With the help of paints and a thin paint brush give some shadow effects to the elements and area’s around them so that they blend into the background beautifully.
  10. Once you are happy with the desired result, varnish your product with any water-based varnish.

This holder can be used at the dining table as a cutlery holder or you can use it to store pens and other stationary items. No matter what or where you decide to use it, it will always look amazing and be functional.

I had fun using these fuzzy cut images and creating a unique background with crackle effect and distressed look. Do try them and don’t forget to share your work.

Happy Crafting.

Love
Ruchika

Wall Decor Plates by Jaanhvi Hinduja, feat. Ba-Dastoor DecoPatch Papers

Hello again dear friends!
I am here to share yet another project made with the Ba – Dastoor DecoPatch papers. The designs are ethnic and so colourful that I wish to make most of them this Diwali.
Hanging plates on the walls have become very popular in the last few years. If you do not own an antique to display, there are lot of home decor stores selling them. But, don’t you consider yourself lucky to possess just the apt supplies and the skills to create your own unique piece? I feel rather blessed to be able to create things that I used to buy once upon a time 🙂
I feel plates made of glass, terracotta, ceramic etc. have their own charm…but they come with a drawback of being fragile and difficult to handle. To overcome this, I made plates made out of wood. They look as beautiful and are not even half as fragile as the glass ones.
I’ve used the elephant design and decoupaged three plates of various sizes. Just one sheet made me three plates.
Diwali isn’t complete without a little bit of bling. My current favorite thing is ‘gilding’, to add that flash. To make gilding more interesting I’ve done it through a stencil. Check out how beautiful they look.
I’d love to share process and tutorials in case you guys are interested. Let me know if you would like to learn.
Till then,
Create, love, share!

Decoupaged Magazine Holder by Ruchika Gupta, Feat. Ba-Dastoor DecoPatch Papers

Hello Crafters,

When two of the best Indian brands come together, the results will always be stunning!!! When I heard BobnBetty and Yelling Yellow were joining hands to come out with the new set of papers, I was ecstatic. The colors and designs of the ‘Ba-Dastoor’ decoupage specialty papers and Decopatch papers are amazing and you will love to work with them.

From the time I laid my hands on the papers, all I could think of was how to showcase them on a product that would do justice to the design. With the festive season coming up, what could be better than a magazine/newspaper holder as part of the home décor.

I have used different elements from the entire ‘Ba-Dastoor’ Decopatch papers. The inside of the holder was painted with a distressed look in maroon so as to match that of the paper. On the inside I have used the stamp and flower element on both sides to give it some symmetry. And once again, I have not added any more stamps or embellishments to the product as the paper design doesn’t need any more additions. They are complete in themselves with so much going on in the design itself.

So, go on and try these beautiful papers and don’t forget to share your creations.

Happy crafting

Love
Ruchika

A Decorative Plaque designed by Jaanhvi Hinduja, Feat. Ba-Dastoor DecoPatch Papers

Happy Monday to all of you!
So, are you’ll up for the festive preparations after the lazy weekend? I was all dull and slow till I received the Bob n Betty festive range of papers :). The bright colours and enchanting ethnic elements have got me geared up for some fresh ideas and newer projects.
I am sharing the first project that I’ve made using the DecoPatch range of “Ba – Dastoor” with all of you here. It’s a decorative plaque with the shloka, “Vakratunda Mahakavya.. ” on it. I’m sure most of you would know the relevance of the shloka and it’s importance in most of our homes.
I’ve used the elephant and the flowers motiffs from the DecoPatch sheet. The background has been hand painted. I’ve done some shading and free hand painting of the leaves around the flowers to blend the motiffs with the background. I’ve also done some detailing on the elephant with gold metal leaf. Finally, I’ve laser cut the shloka, painted and stuck on the plaque.
It makes an interesting decor for the entrance or the puja mandir. What do you think? If you like it, and would like to see a video tutorial, leave a comment on the post. I shall make one, if sufficient number of you are interested to learn :).
Till we meet next,
Lots of love
Jaanhvi

Mini Album by Niharika Gupta, featuring the project made during FB live class

Hello Everyone,

Finally bringing the long awaited pictures of the complete album I made during the Facebook Live Class.
I didn’t add many things offline, just a bit here and there, which i will try to explain here and also i will try to mention the product names of a few things which I used and most people wanted to know their proper names.
Firstly, the adhesive that I used is the runner tape from Scrapbook Adhesives. It comes in variety, you can choose the type of adhesive you like (available at Crafters Corner)
The Embossing ball tool i used is from Dress my craft, medium size (available at Crafters Corner)
The Album is Kraft Memory Hardware Gatefold Journal from Prima Marketing, size 6.5″ X 6.25″
The Lock that I have used is Photo Frame Tied metal hook on the left flap (available at Madras Bazaar) with Tim Holtz clasp on right.
The Window is Memory Hardware Wood Shutters from Prima Marketing again.
Chipboard cutouts that I ended up using were from Scrapiniec and Dusty Attic sentiment chipboards.
I hope i have mentioned about the products most people were inquisitive to know. If still you have some doubt, or any question, please feel free to drop in a message in my inbox.
So the first thing i did after the class was to add my closure lock to the album. You can see how I attached the two pieces with a big bronze round brad in the pictures below. I liked the idea of my wooden window peeing from the center, so i didn’t mind the gap there and let the cover fall a little open at the middle. Added a few charms to the lock chain too.
Secondly, I added few more embellishments near the wooden window with a few splatters of white Gesso and gray chalk paint using my brush.
I ended up adding some splatters to the inside pages as well.
On the spine of the album, i added my favorite jute ribbon, it gives a wonderful texture to the spine.
—————–
I hope you enjoyed going through the pictures. Do drop in your comments to tell me what would you like to learn in the next live class with me.
Have an amazing, creative, and colorful week.
Love, Niharika.

MDF Set of Drawers – Decoupaged by Deepal Shah, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hello creative friends,

Deepal Shah here and am really excited to share my debut post as design team member for Bob n Betty. I am really honored and proud to be associated with this brand.

Today I am sharing with you all, the project I made with beautiful Bob n Betty Decoupage specialty paper collection Roseate.

First I sanded the two-drawer box well and applied gesso all over it. On the top base of the box I painted with acrylic colors so as to match with the background of the papers to be used on drawers and sides. Here I have used only one paper from the set.

Then I have pasted the paper cuts on front and sides with decoupage glue, carefully pressing and removing bubbles. Once it was dried I again applied decoupage glue on top of papers and let it dry. Once dried I applied Decoupage Varnish on the whole box.. even on the painted areas.

Lastly I added lace and miniatures on top of the box according to theme. This drawer box is multipurpose, can be used for storing keys, jewelry or precious mementos.

I had fun creating with these papers which already have too many elements added in one single paper making things easier for beginners also. Do try them and share your projects with us.

Happy crafting!!!

Reverse Decoupage on Glass Plate by Ruchika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch papers

Hello my crafty friends,

This is Ruchika from Caterpillar Designs and today I bring you a beautiful project that I am super-duper excited about, made with the latest ROSEATE – DECOPATCH papers by BobnBetty.

I have made a Glass Plate using reverse decoupage technique along with stencils, texture paint and crackle medium. The elements have a very English Victorian look that I love. And what I have done with the stencils is that I have hand painted each brick with paint to give a very realistic feel to the background. The results have come out stunning.

All the elements in the Roseate Decopatch papers are beautiful and can be used on any medium. The best part is that you can fuzzy cut them and arrange them as you wish and then crate a desired background for it.
So, what are you waiting for? Let your creativity flow and don’t forget to share it with us.
