Be Fearless : Mixed Media Wall Art

Hi Friends,

Good day! Back again today with a Mixed media work.

" Be Fearless in the Pursuit of what sets your Soul on Fire. "

Attempted to implement one of my fave quote with my most fave Chipboard, which is actually a negative of a beautiful Heart chipboard.

  • Used 5x5" Kraft board for the base. 
  • Textured base are created by adhering cloth on kraftboard.
  • Used the negative of the Gorgeous Heart chipboard from Dusty attic. 
  • Used various sprays and Prima waxes.
  • Added those golden glitter balls for the minimal accent touches over the beautiful textures on the foldings.
  • Sentiment is from TH tiled alphabets, which were UTEE clear heat embossed and added.
Hope you like this!

Linking this to following challenge

Mixed media place : October challenge (Inspired by the textures and earthy tones)

Mixed media art : October challenge : Fantasy (Very much inspired by the popping orange/yellow tones, dark magical tones and backgrounds)

Snowman & Penguins

Hi Friends!

Today am sharing a new digital image coloring, which is a special edition by Whimsy Stamps. This is my first stamp of this brand in my stash.

Last month joined Kit and Clowder, to nurture my coloring interest. Felt to improvise with a right dose of Amazing guidance.

Alyce Keegan, owner of this Online coloring Classes. Her guidance is such amazing and it made me to shed off my coloring inhibitions. This is my first ever image to color other than Florals.

Have shared WIP shots in my instagram and FB. Sharing there to record in my blog too :)

End of first two hours :)

End of next 2 hours:

Final 3 hours

Yup...that's the pace at which i colored. 5x7" size image...Colored using my new Prisma colored pencils. Total 7 hours, to build color by color, layer by layer and to flatten the final layers. Worth the efforts. I love the way the image pops up here...

Hope to laminate this or to make a winter wishes card!

Just don't doubt your capabilities...Just dive in to find your interest and nurture it rightly. It takes you to the way you need to be :)

Happy to inspire the souls out there...

Happy Coloring :)

Hugs xo

  • Whole canvas is touched with Prima waxes and Lindy's sprays.
  • Butterfly is stamped, colored using Primacolored pencils and heat embossed using clear UTEE.
