Bright Floral Backdrop

Hi all. It’s been a long time that I had posted something here. I have an announcement to make – ‘I’m expecting a baby’. Yes !! That kept me tired for the last few months. I was busy planning, preparing check lists and all. So I couldn’t create anything for sometime.However, I got a chance to work on something colourful, creative and challenging for a couple of weeks. We had to plan for a gender neutral baby shower decor and I obviously insisted that the decor be DIY.Ā Today I want to share with you the floral backdrop that I had made for my baby shower.

Below is the whole setting which is about 12 feet wide and 5 feet high.

Challenge

I knew I wanted a floral back drop which is quite bright in color, since there were several restrictions to not tape anything on the walls at the function hall and only hooks which were already present could be used to hang any decor. Also the main wall had 3 large windows over which inevitably should be part of the backdrop.

Reference Binder

Hi. Today I’m sharing with you all, another important tutorial which has made my life much easier – ‘REFERENCE BINDER’. This binder was created to address the following main problems.

  • All the paper printouts, tip sheets, sketches and other reference material, which is often used for crafting but not organized.
  • Keep a track of all the growing stash and maintain a reference of the following
    • Stamps
    • Dies
    • Punches

Easy Colour Swatch Tutorial

Hi all. Colour swatches are a must have for an artist. You do not want to pull out all the stamp pads and keep trying all the shades and tones of a colour, until you find the desired colour for your project. Labels on the stamp pads can be deceiving at times, as the actual ink on paper may actually turn out to be dark or lighter than the label on stamp pad.
One way to get a colour swatch is to download and print those that the manufacturers sell. But again, you do not want to buy all the swatches from all the manufacturers, though you may own only half of all those colours. Also these colour swatches keep getting updated with time.

So I created by own colour swatch to address all the above issues. A simple but very functional cute little swatch.

Spring Home Decor

Hi all. I am so excited to share my latest creation with you guys. I found this white cage wall decor at a store and a spontaneous idea struck my mind. (You could purchase the same here)

I purchased those lovely birds and dragon flies, created a few paper flowers (distress ink was definitely helpful here), and used a few store bought leaf decors and left over floral accents.

I assembled them all for a really long time, hardly using any adhesives. I weaved the leaves and other embellishments through the frame of the cage. Ta-da! This beautiful cage resulted.

How do you like it guys?

Li’ll Birdie On The Wall

I could not leave the push pins area where the keys are hung idle. It looked too boring, which is why I left a bird perched on the craft stick. I tied ribbon to the buttons and on the other end stuck the craft stick.
I made this little birdie with craft paper and used foam board stickers for adding more colour.

My nephew- Abhi

I only have this 2 X 2″ photo of my nephew Abhiram. This little darling was safe in my wallet and that’s how I have it with me here. I couldn’t stop myself from making this little photo holder.

Abhi looks too innocent in this picture though he isn’t really as innocent.
I miss you Abhi.
