Winter themed Gatefold Accordian Mini Album -- Step By Step Tutorial

Namaste Friends!!

This is Kriti and today I am here with a tutorial post. The winter has officially come, so I hope it will give you all an inspiration for your winter projects. And today I have got a mini album tutorial
using Papericious new release paper pack Winter Rimes. It mainly has two winter colours blue and beige, a perfect match for winters, comes in size of 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 inch.

Have a look...

I have made a Gatefold Accordion mini album and I enjoyed creating it because these papers have all the elements of winter that any one can think....

So, let's see how I have created this...

Firstly I have taken a chipboard piece and cut it into 5 pieces 12 x 16 cm, 8.5 x 16 cm, 5 x 16 cm and two pieces of 2 x 16 cm.

Adhere them on a cardstock, keeping a gap of 0.5 cm(so that it can bend easily) in each piece as shown in the picture below

Now score the edges, cut the corners and cover it.

Cover the inside of the album with the pattern papers

Now, cut a piece of cardstock into four pieces 23 x 15 cm. Score at 11 cm and 22 cm on the long side.

Join them together to make accordion, mat them and finally paste them inside the album. And voila! album is ready.

Some more pics..

It opens up like this...

I hope you like this project..

Monochrome Mini Album

Namaste Friends!!

Kriti here with my latest project with Papericious new release Monochrome Paper Pack and 3D Chipboards. This pack is a must have as it has beautiful designs.

So, let's see what I have created

This is a mini album of size 8" x 6". For the cover, I had layered two pattern papers from the pack and then done some mixed media over it. Firstly , I applied some clear gesso and then applied Papericious modelling paste with the help of stencil. After that, sprayed some yellow colour and done some doodling with black water colour pencil. Embellished it and the cover is ready...

Some close- up pics of the cover..

 I hanged 3D star shaped chipboards as charm.

"Home" Mixed Media Layout

Namaste Friends!!

This is Kriti and today I am back with a step-by-step tutorial of a mixed media layout.

I named it "Home--There's no place like". By writing this I just want to say that home is the starting place of love, hope and dreams. A place your feet may leave but your heart will always be. This is a place where love resides and memories are created. It is rightly said " A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it". That's why I say if, you go anywhere, even paradise, you will miss your home.

Have a look..

Lets see how I have created this..

Firstly I have collected few things like chipboard, gloss gel, white heavy gesso, modelling paste, few spray colours and some embellishments.

First cut the chipboard of size 6" x 4"  and apply soft gloss gel. After that cover the entire surface with white heavy gesso (I have used palette knife to apply the heavy gesso to give some texture).

Next I have applied modelling paste with the help of bubble stencil to give some more interesting texture.

Now the most interesting part, I have sprayed some water upside down so that colour can flow easily and then sprayed few colours. to give more interest I have first used light yellow, then dark yellow and lastly brown (All coloured were spayed upside down).

And now adhere all the embellishments and sentiment as per your creative thinking. I have stamped it also with bubble stamp and its ready.

I will surely frame this and put in my living room. So, If you want to beautify your home, don't sit and think about it. Go and get busy.

Wall Decor with decoupage papers

Namaste Friends!!

Kriti here today...and I have a quick tutorial for a beautiful Wall D├ęcor that I had made using Papericious Decoupage Papers, Chalk Paints, Crackle Paste, Decoupage Glue, White Gesso, Cardstocks and Paper Pack Blush.

Have a look...

Let's see how I have created this..

I have collected few things like chipboard, cardstock, glue, white gesso, chalk paint, acrylic paint, crackle paste, decoupage papers, decoupage glue and some embellishments.

First cut the chipboard of size 10" x 8" for the base and for the frame cut four pieces of chipboard of size 10" x 1.5" and four pieces of 5" x 1.5". Paste these rectangular pieces over the base to make the frame( We have to paste 2 rectangle chipboards on each side to get the depth for the frame). And then cover the whole frame with white gesso.

Now, cover the whole base using Country Grey Chalk Paint.

Next mix the pink acrylic paint with white crackle paste and apply all over it.

Now its the time to adhere my decoupage paper, so I have cut few flowers from the Pretty Peonies Decoupage Papers and adhere them with the help of decoupage glue. And then put a beautiful sheet from my favourite collection Blush onto the base.

After that I had embellished it with some flowers, doilies, die-cuts and a sentiment from Tim- Holtz wood mounted stamp. And voila...its ready

I hope you have like this project and you will try this out.
