Explosion box - Mintay Papers and Dress My Craft Sequins

Hi Creative Peeps !

I have always loved making explosion boxes , coming up with new 3D center pieces is one of my favorite hobby :P . Starting from a couple, bouquet, hot air balloon, 3D hearts, cupcake, engagement ring box, baby shoes, baby cot and what not, I have tried them all !

My new acquisition and newly found love-  Mintay Papers have woven magic into this explosion box and I have used it extensively with Dress My Craft sequins and mini pearls with a mixed media look. The box is a customized order that I made as a birthday gift for a teacher, so you can spot some beautiful birthday embellishments going with pink-mint theme.

Feast your eyes on these beautiful pictures that still have not done justice to how charming the creation was in real !

                                       Sequins and micro pearls from DressMyCraft.

Hope you like it !Show me some love in the comments section !

Mystic House

Hi Craft Peeps !

I am so excited to be writing this post for one of my favorite and such an inspiring "Mixed Media & Art" blog . They have a beautiful and mysterious theme for the month of March. Below is their inspiration picture

All the elements are so intriguing and made me jump to create something spectacular. I was taken away with the green , the charms and wooden textures. Based on this, I created a mystic house.

I started with wooden crates, topped them on one another and then added the wooden house. All the wooden pieces were then given a generous coating of Finnabair Rust and Patina pastes. The texture on the roof of the house was created with cork sheet and rust pastes.

 I also added some textures on the side with Finnabair's sand paste. The embellishments were made with prima mould and clay, painted with gesso, patina paste and bronze acrylic paint.

I wanted to use some charms taking inspiration from the photo by Mixed media & Art blog , so  added this bulb and filled it with sequins from Dress My Craft.

A vintage clock was also my idea of using charms in the project. Lots of moss and moss powder for the green effect ! Finnabair's art stones and micro pearls from Dress My Craft added lot of texture and depth to my creation.

I have used wooden discs of various sizes at the bottom crate and covered them randomly with moss powder. The falling stones effect was achieved with natural cocoons from Dress My Craft and Finnabair's waxes.

And here is the complete look of my project. I liked how it turned out  !

I am entering this to Mixed Media And Art March challenge.
