Creative Blog Hop and a Canvas - First Ever Try :)

Thank You Bhavana for nominating me for this Creative Blog Hop. It helps to know a little more about the artists and their interests.

So...Little about me...

1. What are you working right now ?

Working on a card right now in my craft space and few pending project works going on.

2. How does your work differ from others of your genre?

My card making style much inclined towards pastel shades, shabby chic and vintage kind. I love to make my own handmade florals using various dies and so my cards are florally embellished always :)

3. Why do you create and what you do?

Am an MPhil graduate in Toxicology and have a pulsating desire to do my PhD. Right now, SAHM of a naughty little fella, who keeps me on toes always. Learnt classical dance, veena and carnatic music, but only being in this crafter community, made me to enjoy my life amidst of my regular mundane.

4.How does your creative process work?

To me..inspirations are everywhere and in everything. It depends on the eyes of beholder.
To inspire and to be inspired by.. is my motto always.

Thats all from me!

Love to nominate two other talented crafter pals who excels in their own line. Love to know a bit more about you guys. Hope you love to continue the chain :)

And coming to my First ever Canvas. Done bit of Mixed media kind style. Rest left to you to comment.

Today is my little one's 6th birthday and wanted to add my fave pic which we took on his 10th month at a tour at Macau near Hong Kong at 2010 New year :)

Very Happy Birthday Adithya :)

Its a 5x7 mini canvas and i gessoed down initally. Then took DCWV Luxury stack pp which has a metallic and pearlised sheen on it. Love this stack for its richess and elegance. Took the one with little blue shades and baby pink shades and light brown scrolls.

Then its pasted on the canvas using Modpodge Matt and again gessoed down to tone down the color and to pick up the mists.

Added the handmade blooms which are gessoed down and sprayed with Glimmer mist blue and diamond dust sprinkled on it edges.

The metal embellishments are Prima junkyards and the diecut Bundle of joy is distressed with Tumbled glass DI. My new stash, Tim holtz Elegant florishes are diecut from kraft CS and gessoed down a bit and added near the pic. Few CLD ivy florish leaves are diecut and their edges are distressed with tumbled glass DI . Few ink splatters in black, blue and few blue pearls to finish off.

Hope you like my attempt!
