Craft-room Wall Hanging by Zalak A Mandal feat. Dirty Pour Decoupage Paper

Hello Everyone,

Zalak again with you all. Today I am sharing wall hanging project with “Dirty Pour” Decoupage paper. This wall hanging I have made for all the Crafters who has their own craft room and inspired by random search on internet basically known as Optical Illusion Frame.

So, Let’s see

DSC06077

I had a 12″ square MDF board with me and was planning to do acrylic pour art on it but then I received my DT kit and I saw Dirty Pour decoupage paper.

  • So I cut 8″x1″ strips from scrap MDF and placed them on a 12″ MDF board in a form of triangle to create illusion effect. Then I have prime it with primer.
  • Then in my silhouette machine I cut two different stencil saying “Create” and “Inspire”.
  • Then on paper I placed one of a stencil and applied modeling paste. Same way with other paper I applied modeling paste mixed with brown color. Also splatter with gold acrylic color.
  • Once it is dried, I have cut them into 8″x1″ strips.
  • Then with mod-podge I adhered one design (i.e. Create) on a left side of the triangle strips and other design (i.e. Inspire) on a right side of the triangle strips.
  • Then I let the frame dried and after that I have applied red color to the back side of the base.
  • Once everything was dried, I have applied waterproof varnish.

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 🙂

Process:

Took an 8 by 10 Canvas Board & applied a thick layer of heavy white gesso on it. To create texture in the background, created grooves in the wet gesso with the end of a paint brush & added few mini beads. Once, it was dry, sprayed on colors. For the focal image & titles, fussy cut elements from one of the papers in the Classics Collection, created a nest with sisal, dry hay, colored gauze, feathers and then adhered the owl & titles to it. Also, added flowers, die cuts, wood slices & lace around the nest to form a visually pleasing composition. Then did background stamping with black archival ink and for shine, applied Prima’s Metallique waxes to the background. For additional texture & shine, applied Finnabair’s art stones & glass glitter using 3d Matte Gel to some of the areas.  Then, dry brushed some white gesso onto the flowers and created white ink splatter. In the end, distressed the edges of the canvas with black soot distress ink.

Vintage Mixed Media Tags Designed by Preeti Datta using Bob N Betty Decoupage Papers

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you today?

Bob n Betty will soon be celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday on 28th April, yay!! Everyone at the Bob n Betty family is very thankful for all the love & support bestowed on us. To celebrate, there will be lots of fun events & giveaways. One giveaway is already under way, to check out all the details of the giveaway & for your chance to win superb prizes, please visit the Bob n Betty Facebook page.

Today, I’d like to share two Vintage Mixed Media Tags. I created these using Bob N Betty’s gorgeous Decoupage Papers. These papers have classy designs and there are tons of designs to choose from among many collections. Over here, I used two of the older collections, Glam Craft and Vintage Wheels. These decoupage papers can be used to make different paper craft projects including scrapbooks, cards, tags etc It is really worth looking at all the brilliant inspiration the Design Team at Bob n Betty have come up with in the past.

Process:

Started by cutting one of the vintage design decoupage papers from Bob n Betty’s Vintage Wheels Collection & distressing the edges. Since I was making a pair of tags, I worked on both together, using similar supplies on both but changing the composition a little to create variation. Matted the paper with black cardstock. Did background stamping with archival inks. For the layers, used a few, small bits of papers from the Glam Craft Collection, lace, gauze, buttons, chipboards, paper dolls, flowers, dried hay & stalks, thread & wooden alphabets. Embellished with a few Nuvo drops, Liquid pearl drops & sequins. Then created some white splatter with watered down white gesso. Foam mounted the panels onto white cardstock and threaded some natural twine at the top of the tags. In the end, for shine, added Inka Gold & Prima Waxes in some areas with my fingers.

Floral CAS Cards Designed by Preeti Datta Using Multiple Bob n Betty Collections

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you today?
I’d like to share 6 CAS or Clean & Simple Styled Floral Cards with you. I have included a few Mixed Media Elements in some of the designs to create additional interest. These were a lot of fun to make & the idea here was to use the gorgeous floral elements from various Bob n Betty Collections & mix and match them to create cards. Usually, we use floral stamps & then color them to make such elements for cards, here, I wanted to fussy cut & use the beautiful, water-colored, floral images in the Bob n Betty Scrapbook Papers.

All the cards are standard A2 sized (4.25 by 5.5 inches). For the first 4 cards, I created fun backgrounds atop watercolor paper die cut panels. To lend these an organic, artsy look, I did “Ink Smooshing” to add shades of green to the background using distress inks & distress oxides. Then, created some ink splatter & did background stamping using shadow grey archival ink. For all the cards, I created layered floral clusters with fussy cut images, torn pieces of pattern paper & thread. Dimension was achieved by adding foam tape under some of the elements. The sentiments were fussy cut from the You n I paper pack & a few die cut sentiments were also used.  In the end, for embellishing all the cards, I used White & Black Nuvo Drops.

Here is a collage of all the cards:
