All about blooms.!!

Hello everyone.!!
         Riswana here with you today.. This is my last DT post for this term at Mudra and I'm taking a break because of my upcoming exams.!! I would really miss being part of this wonderful team, it was sheer pleasure working with them & I learnt so much along the way.. I would like to thank each and everyone of them & a biiiggg special thanks to Varshitha for believing in me & showering loads of love all the time.
            Most importantly I take this opportunity to thank you all, my wonderful friends, for giving me so much support, love & encouragement. You made the journey more memorable & worthwhile.!!
            So without further ado, let's look at my projects for today, but a warning.!! This post is tooo longgg andddd picture heavyyyy.!! :D

Card 1:
 

       This is a CAS card with the beautiful Zinnia stampset.! I totally adore this flower & I colored it with Zig CCRB pens.. I wanted it to be the focal point, so i kept the rest of the card Super simple..


Stampsets used:

  


Card 2: 


    This card is made using the most popular Botanical blooms stampset from Mudra.! This set is so versatile and the possibilities are endless.!
     I wrote the sentiment with black fine liner pen & drew a circle around it with pencil. Then I stamped the leaves on it with memento inks (new sprout, bamboo leaves) & also stamped some fillers..
     Stamped the blooms on a separate CS with memento inks (Angel pink, Rose bud, Lady bug) fussy cut them & mounted using foam squares...

Stamp set used:


Card 3:


     I stamped the daisy blooms with distress inks & used the layers as guide to do some watercoloring..  Then painted the background with distress inks & added some details with a white gel pen... Finished with few clear sequins..

Card 4:

       Here's a mixed media card.! Am totally in love with the Damask stampset.. I heat embossed with violet pearl EP & the shine is gorgeous in real life.. I've tried to capture a little bit here... Not sure if it is visible :P


Added tumbled glass & peacock feathers distress paints to color.. Also added some DI through a stencil to add more textures..
Distressed the edges of the layers & finally added the butterfly embellishment to finish off the card.!

Journal layout:
      Art journalling has been my favorite part of crafting & it was because of journals that I was introduced to this wonderful world of crafts.. So i wanted to complete my post with a layout and Oh, I also have a pictorial for the same :) (told you the post was pic heavy.!!! ;))
     Journaling is something more personal. There are no rules, no specific style, no restrictions.. It's a way of expressing yourslef freely & i love that freedom it provides.! However, learning a few tips & techniques will help us achieve the results we have visualised to become reality.. And Let's begin.! Here's the layout..


Background:
    It's easy to start with a pattern paper as it gives lot of interest and texture.. I've used this gravel PP from Papericious "Naturals" collection..


Stick the PP on to the base & trim off the excess.


Give a light wash of grey color with Distress ink & water brush.


Use a sponge dauber to apply ink through a wall stencil. (I used both distress ink & archival ink). Add more ink where the wall and pathway meet to make the demarcation better.


Apply texture paste through a stencil using palette knife. After it dries, add a little amount of color to highlight some areas. (The Ranger texture paste is inkable i.e., it absorbs inks)


Focal points:
     After the background is complete, it's time to make the focal points.

Stamp Ria on pattern papers with scripts (for more interest), colour with the medium of choice, paper piece the image & finally fussy cut it. I used Zig pens to color & also added some rhinestones for her necklace..


Draw some rough flower pots on brown PP, color & fussy cut. Stamp the filler flowers from Mudra Botanical blooms stampset on to cardstock. Fussy cut them & stick on the pot in layers.


Fussy cut some chit chat sentiments from PP & also some little banners (which i made into a signboard )
It's always better to arrange all the elements before sticking them & take a snapshot with camera to finalise the layout or make changes if necessary..


Finally stick all the elements in place using tacky glue, trim alomg the edges and you are done.!!!
