WALL CLOCK WITH MINIATURES

HELLOOOO!!!1

Welcome to the Dress My Craft blog. It's Anita here with a super awesome wall clock project that can be made so quickly and makes an amazing gift item, all handmade by you.

Dress My craft has some awesome range of miniatures, mulberry flowers and many other products that makes crafting so much fun.
You can visit the store HERE to check the entire collection.

Today , I have a Wall clock made with the Teenie Weenies paper, Stencils and Miniatures.

This is a picture heavy post so do spare some time to go through the pictures.

This is a 10x12 inch wall clock made on a MDF board. The look is that of a shelf with little flower baskets, cake and cake stand , mini bottles filled with pearls etc. All the product details are given below. This project can be framed and used in a living room, kitchen or any other area of the house and looks very pretty indeed.





Step by Step method 


 1. Gather all the supplies from crafters Corner and Dress My Craft Store.
The mdf board measures 10" x 12 "


 2. Cut pattern paper from Teenie Weenie paper pad. Choose two patterns . I have chosen a muted background for the top and a striped pattern for the bottom. The sizes are 9.5 inches x 10 inches for top and 3.5inches by 10 inches for the bottom.


 3. Apply red tacky tape on the surface of the Mdf board.


                                        4. Adhere the paper on the board as above.


                                                           5. Cut strips of corrugated paper about 2 inches broad and 10 inches long . You will require 4 pieces. One piece of chipboard 10" x 1". two triangles cut from 1" square. Colour all these with Folk art brown acrylic colour and black gesso.


 6. Attach all the pieces on the board with Glossy accents.


  7. Add some texture on the top and bottom of the base, using the stencil, modelling paste and spray some colour on top when the texture dries. I have used a combination of brown and deep magenta color. You can used distress spray or any other spray.


8. Cut a circle from the pattern paper and adhere on the top above the shelf with glossy accents. Colour a clock piece with black gesso and adhere as shown.


 9. Start arranging the things on the shelf. The basket has been filled with styrofoam/thermocol pieces . Add some white glue and fill with dry moss powder. Make miniature books with scrap pieces of chip board and pattern paper. Fill bottles with mini micro beads. The pink micro beads have been made by coloring the beads with drops of pink alcohol ink. Fill the pot with mini roses. Add cakes and cake stand. Adhere some scarp lace with glossy accents. Put more miniatures.



                                         The complete look of shelf when arranged.


The  finished  Project.

Dress my craft - CHA projects

Hello friends,

kavitha here today to share  my projects specially made for CHA .I made four projects featuring each paper collection and stencils along with tons of other embellishments .I totally enjoyed working with DMC products,i tell you the paper quality is amazing and perfect for all mixed media projects.

So here is the first one using my favorite and our very first paper pad "Hydrangea lawns" .This paper is so beautiful and soft, purples are one of my favorite.I used a light background,created soft texture with modelling paste and vintage script stencils .Then created my layers using fussy cut elements from the paper pad.




The next layout is using "Teenie weenies" ,i love the warm colors of this paper pad,so i made a Autumn layout. For the background i have used  Fishnet stencils .All the flowers are from crafters corner and i have used sparkling dust on it




Next one i again a soft layout using "Dots n stripes" paper pad.The background is created with beautiful  Alphas stencil.I have used lots of Fashion accessories for embellishing .




And here is the final one,my most favorite from the four.Its not my usual style but love how it turned out(sorry for the poor pic,i took all these in hurry before sending).I totally love the Steampunk stencil and wanted to showcase it in a different way.So i used it as focal point and tried my best to decorate in a way it wont get covered.The canvas is painted with wax and decorated with  DMC fashion accessories and sequins 





Hope you liked the projects.
Happy crafting,
Kavi

Miniature Fairy Garden

Hello creative friends,

how are you all doing?Today i have a miniature project featuring newly launched moss sheet and powder,Miniature dome (soon to be  launched) and new range of glitters.
The new moss sheet is amazing and looks so real.I made a miniature garden scene with Graphic 45 fairies,DMC miniature accessories and glitter powder.  To prepare the base i painted it in brown shades and then glued down the moss sheet.I made some flower baskets using the miniature basket,moss sheet and mulberry flowers. The tree,mushroom house and small mushrooms are made of clay and painted with acrylics.All the fairies are fussy cut and backed with transparent sheet and glued down to the base. I adhered a beautiful 3d fairy flower in the center and kept some ceramic dolls from my collection.
Here is the small dome,aren't they so cute?i glued down moss sheet,arranged my fussy cut elements and its ready.I applied glossy accents with brush randomly and sprinkled generous amount of rainbow glitters and rainbow glitter chunks

I have also sprinkled some green moss powder over the tree and in some random places,it gives a nice soft texture.
The fairy wings are decorated with micro sprakling dust,it adds the perfect  glow to the angels .I just love the variety of glitter DMC offers,each one gives different effect to your projects which you cannot find anywhere else,.





Hope my project inspired you to try the new products,would love to hear your feedback :)

Products used:
