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.

There is beauty in simplicity

Hello everyone today I wants to share something new which I have tried I created a layout with chalk paint this  is my first attempt with chalk paint in any kind of paper stuff , previous I have used chalk paints only on glass,MDF,wood etc,but I never made something like this before from these paints ,These decorative paints can be used on innumerable surfaces
Today I have come with something simple, n made with less craft supplies with almost one paint
I hope you will like it
Have a look

1. I have taken a piece of card stock
2. Tore  a piece of corrugated sheet  diagonally and pasted it on the card stock as shown in picture.
3. I have painted all of these with Chocolate Truffle chalk paint.

4. After that, I did some stencil work with modelling paste.

Pasted some laces of different designs and sizes in 3 layers in the center.
5. I have used a chipboard square cut out to make my frame. Then pasted some flowers wherever I liked.
6. Used Wild Wasabi chalk paint in some areas with a light hand using dry brushing technique. Used  gesso on the corrugated sheet.
7. To add some shiny effect to my layout I have used white glitter dust white, and some micro beads and sequins. For some interest, added a chipboard bird.
Here is some more pics of the finished creation.

I hope you like my simple n less supplies layout
Thank you so much for visiting my craft place,I hope see u soon again

Lets get Shiny with metallic

Hello everyone
Its Pooja here ! I am back again with my new mixed media project. Today I  have come with a mini canvas which I have made for creative art mix media joint project stage 4 n also this is my DT work for itsy bitsy with  their Little Birdie's newly launched Tinted Metallic Paints.
I wanted to see their results on a black base so I decided to make a mixed media canvas which has a black backdrop and a multiple number of materials. This will allow me to see the effect of these paints on different surface like metal, chipboard, fabric, plastic, resin embellishments etc.

Have a look....

  1. I have used a piece of wood and pasted a canvas sheet on, after that I pasted different material like decorative lace, burlap lace, chipboard and some leftover die cut negative and chipboard negatives, my old broken jewelry, beads etc.
2. Then I applied black gesso all over them.

3. Added some sand in black gesso and applied this paste where ever I wanted to give a texture.

4. After completing the texture with sand, it looked like this but on the  black base it's difficult to see this texture. However, after the colors are put in place it's gives an awesome look.

5. After it was completely dry, I started applying gesso with  dry brush randomly. Then I used gold splash colors, first to give a light shade to my background and then started blinding color layers with Tinted Metallic Paints.

 I decided to make it colourful and used different shades of tinted metallic paints.

7. I have added resin embellishments, some piece of my old jewelry art stone and for some more shine, I have used Hearty Melange, golden hearts, Fairy Dust- Rich Copper,prima glass beads,micro beads, sequence
8. In the end I distressed the whole piece with Silver Charm  and Silver Oak tinted metallic paints.
8.at the end I have applied finnabair waxes to increase my project beauty
Here is some close up.............

I hope you liked my mixed media work. Thank you so much for visiting and for your love!!
