DT post for itsy bitsy

Hello everyone Pooja here,

I am back again with  another DT  creation of mine for itsy bitsy made with Mixed Media paste and Little Birdie's one step Crackle Medium.  This is totally an experiment for me where I worked with both products to create my background. This is also my first experience with Little Birdie's Crackle Medium, but I am totally happy with the outcome.
Have a look at what I created ....

To begin, I applied Mixed Media paste on a hard board. Before application, I diluted this paste with little bit of water.

2. Then, I used a stencil to form a pattern with the mixed media paste and you can  see how perfectly it worked. Thereafter I  painted the blank spaces, (mostly where I did not do stenciling) with Moda- burgundy paint.

3. I desperately wanted to try out the Crackle Medium, so I decided to use this first only on the part that I had painted. I applied Crackle Medium on that part  after it was a little dry. On top of it, I applied white acrylic paint and soon after,  cracks started to appear.  I was so thrilled with the results that I decided to  create the entire background with it.
For the remaining background I used Slate Mixed media paste and Chalk Paint.

4. Applied Crackle Medium after it was dry and topped it with white acrylic paint.

It looked like this after I was done with these steps....

I used different shades of spray paints (red, blue, brown,black) to coordinate with the colors of  the image at the center.
Next, I just added flowers and embellishments around my focal image and wrapped a twine as you can see in the final image. Also used Mixed Media paste on the edges and on top to create a snowy look!
Have a look

Hope you liked my creation.
Feels nice to hear from all of you, so drop me a line about how you liked it.

Hello everyone
 Today I am here to share my guest designing work  for A vintage journey blog,thank you vintage journey team for giving this honored
I have altered a bottle according to their this month theme "winter wonderland"
Have a look

1.I used a old bottle after cleaning it, I've done some stencil work in front part n for side I have applied modelling paste n started tapping with finger to give some texture,u can see in pic for the same
2.i have used a piece of corrugated sheet to make roof,cut 3/4",13.5" long strip n roll it to make pillars and pasted a piece of 4/4" card board to increase the width towards the lower end,as u can see in pic it's time to color it,I have used brown,white, yellow n a bit of green for base colors,  I used sponge for coloring

4.used black, dark brown n green acrylic paints again, but this time I have diluted them with water n used them with brush 

After dried I distress it with white gesso n a bit of orange colour
5.i used some small pieces of thin fabric(like cheese cloth) n dipped them in geeso n pasted them on the top of the roof,n some pieces I have hanged like nature snow(shown in pic) I've also sprinkle some sliver guiltier fine dust n,sugar dust to give it snow look,for soft snow look I have used light modelling paste in some areas

6.I added some natural tree wood at the bottom n also created show effect  on them with the same method I mentioned above

Now it was looking like this I added a frame with a vintage pic n paint it with brown after that added modelling paste in some areas

Altered art African style stand

Hello everyone its Pooja,
Once again I'm back with a mixed media altert project with the newly launched tinted metallic paints for itsy bitsy blog, I always try to make something new with less supplies, so this time I made an African themed pen stand.
Have a look here...


  1. I have used an old broken sculpture (this was also made by me years back ). I pasted it on a bottle to give it the right height
  2.  I have taken a piece of a fabric and dipped it in white gesso. You can use black gesso directly and start draping it on the bottle. This way I made her dress and her headgear.

3. Now I have given  three coats of different layers; first applied  black gesso, after it dried, I applied white gesso randomly on the whole piece and after that I used brown acrylic paint as a base colour on the whole piece.

4. Then I used a thin fabric ( you can use anything like a cheese  or gauze) and colored it with Colors Splash spray (I have listed the shades below with direct link), and applied  two shades of metallic paints...Tawny glint n Golden glaze.

After I built up layers of metallic paints, my African lady was looking like this

6. Now it's time to make the pen stand. I have used corrugated sheet to make the roll and the other shapes and arranged them on a piece of MDF.
7. Pasted some embellishments like flowers, chipboards, sea shells and applied black gesso all over them.

8. I have used the same metallic paint which I have used for the lady.

9. Finally added my African lady on the stand base.
10.applied prima wax for more highlight


Hope you like my work.  Love to see all the beautiful things that you make, these are just little inspirations to give you new ideas.
