Mixed media ATC - Acorn House

Hello everyone.!

       Firstly I would like to apologize for not being so active in blogland and other social media..! I am quite occupied with preparing for my exams and travelling about 4 hrs to work everyday.!! I wanted to make this post long back but found the time right now.! So here's another mixed media ATC..

Am sharing a pictorial of the process here..
I first sketched out the rough version of the hut & traced it out with black fine liner pen..

I mixed mica flakes and gesso to add on the head portion..

Painted the base with brown acrylic paint, applied crackle paint and then added a top coat of orange acrylic paint..

Painted the acorn head with brown and black acrylic paint..

Added all the exposed bricks and stairs with texture paste...

Added some highlights by dry brushing with gesso.. It also brings out the relief areas..

I decided later on to make the door an interactive one.. So here's a little surprise inside :) the door knob is made out of clay & painted gold..

A little photo editing to give a fairy tale feel ;)

Hope you liked it. I hope to be back soon for my craft routine in few weeks and also make visits around blogland.!!
Thanks for your support & love <3
Create. Have fun.

Mixed media ATCs Neon

Hello my dear friends..
       It has been so long since I posted on my blog other than DT commitments.. I really wanted to break the spell :D
       I plan to make a "series" of mixed media ATCs which i've done in the past with sone insights to the making... Beginning with the latest one I've created, theme being NEON.

I started off by adhering paper from an onld novel to my CS base. Then adhered some neon papers in strips to build some layers..

Added wash of gesso to mute down the bg.. Colored the area with gelatos (limoncello, orange soda, bubblegum, snow cone) some random bg stamping to add more textures..
Added some chunky glitter in neon colors randomly..
Added a punched out layered flower in neon colors again, quote on the vellum & some shredded pieces of neon papers which i used before...

Finally added some white splashes with white gel pen & black Distress ink along the edges.!! Done.

Hope you liked this project. Do lemme know your comments on whether you would like this mixed media ATC series :)

The challenge board being this:

The words "she", "scribbles" & "words" in the poem got my attention & also the girl image & color red..

Stampsets used: Ria from Mudra stamps, Post card elements from Tim Holtz & Itsy bitsy stamps
