Miniature series -1

I stumbled upon Kris’ awesome blog recently and if I say I was amazed, it will be an under statement of the year. Not that I had never made miniatures earlier but they were not this small and definitely not this detailed.

I wanted to try something new and I had all the time in the weekend (Cub and hubby being on their respective tours!! ;) ).

See what I came up with;

This being my first try I could not take many pictures in the making…

This is how it looked once I assembled the parts... have a lot of work still to do

This is how it looked all painted and with the seat cusion

You can see I have painted the back too :D

It was definitely fun to make this and was a little tough to maneuver with such a small scale but fun nonetheless. The size of this stool chair is 8 cm in height and 3 cm in diameter.

Once I was done with it my itch to make another miniature was stronger. So then I took up a little bigger miniature with more work to do. I completely forgot to take pictures in the working stage but see what I came up with…

Backless sofa/couch with two plush cushions… completely handmade :D

Miniature Backless Couch... It took some 8 hours from start to finish :)

I am happy with the results… do leave some comments on how to do better.

I am sure to come up with more miniatures in the future. It is really fun :) Thank you Kris for opening this new world to me. :)

P.S. I am entering my backless sofa/couch for Colour Conceptions “Anything but cards” challenge. Wish me luck guys :)

Some Cards with photo inks

It was the time when my mojo was at its lowest. I HAD to jazz myself up. My eyes fell on photo inks I was hoarding for a few months now. Without thinking too much I gathered my inks and spritz bottles and decided to just go for some fun.

Here are a few shots of my experiments.

Photo inks made into spray inks

Loved the water colour effect…

White card stock turned to colourful palatte

And the cards…

Scrapbook Album for a Baby Boy

Had to make a scrapbook album for a baby boy and I did not want to used the traditional flowery stuff. It had to be bold colours and almost no use of flowers (the one I generally use).

Also, for the first time I have used “Hidden Hinge Binding” and I absolutely love it. The finishing that I got with this binding is unmatachable. It looks unlikely now that I would go back to “ring binding” again.

Please note that this is a picture heavy post. Now, let me take you through the pages!! :D

The Cover Page

The Cover Page

I used some crayons to give the background to “Cherish”… and “Cherish” is a chip board die cut coloured with spray colouring with Photoinks.

In between you see that my watermark disappears from the pictures. Well, that’s because I accidentally deleted my watermark picture :roll: :roll: Now, I will have to make another one but till then I just wanted to share this creation of mine. :D :D

With the Photomat Tags -  that goes as page inserts

My first video tutorial :D

Hi guys,

Finally I managed to shoot a video tutorial on how to make¬†larger bags with “We R Memory Keepers” gift bag punch board. A lot of craft friends wanted to know how to go about it. I thought a tutorial would help a lot of other crafters too. So here I am…

Since this is my first attempt at making a tutorial on a video, please excuse me for all the out of focus captures :)

Enjoy crafting, be safe and stay happy :)

Birthday card for a 7 year old football fan :-)

I had to make a birthday card for a 7 year old football fan :-) And he is a quilling fan too…

So here is what I came up with…

image

And instead of putting it in an envelop, I used the card itself to decorate his gift :-)

So his favourite two things are in the card… football and quilled Sun. Hope he likes the card :-)

Ciao,
