shaker dome tutorial -for itsy bitsy(mothers day special )

Hello dear readers,
This gives me extreme delight to share with u all my experience, experiments, trials with the absolute amazing new launch! This is Little Birdie ‘Gold Alcohol Splash’ color spray.
These little bottles of gold portion I must say r like must must have in your craft stash esp. if you are someone like me ,who loves mix media or someone who just loves gold (I mean which gal doesn’t :P)
Btw this is my first guest post on the blog and I’m super nervous. (So please excuse me for the mistakes).
Today I’m sharing an absolute favorite project of mine these days, i.e. 3D dome with the magic of alcohol sprays! And it’s a dedication to my pretty mom, a special gift for this MOTHER’S DAY.

So before digging in the details of how to make it let’s check out what we are going to make!

So let’s begin.
Step 1: Take the burlap panel –this is an absolute perfect base because it has so much texture to it and its sheen at the end is just amazing)

The stencils r of amazing quality and r super durable that’s what I love about these beauties

Step 2: I have stenciled using the modeling paste from Mont marte and used 3 different stencils to create depth (don’t forget to cover the sides) and heat set it.

Step 3 : I used just 2 sprays and could achieve gradients and also 3 shades on the panel.

Few things to remember:
·         they dry very quick
·         they leave a golden sheen behind after each spray on the project which is gorgeous
·         This r fabulous to color the flowers to match your projects. I did a few for this project
·         These colors can be blended with Sponge Blenders and diluted with Alcohol Blending Solution. I’m attaching a picture for reference.


Step 4 : So now it’s time to make the center focus.
I used the WATER BRUSH AND CAKE WATER COLORS to color the image 
(This is just a reference picture, I
Used another one but forgot to click that :P)

Step 5 : Then I stuck the picture to the canvas and before which I cut it to the exact size of the dome .using the silicon glue

Step 6 : Now stick the flower and add some shaker elements to the center of the picture (put loads, more the merrier)
now using the silicone glue a fix the dome over the picture and allow to dry completely …..Its takes a while but until then don’t move the panel.

Step 7 : Finish by adding peals and flowers around the dome as per your choice.
the silicone glue a fix the dome over the picture and allow to dry completely …..Its takes a while but until then don’t move the panel.

    Step 8 : To add the final touch add the foiled sentiment from the mother’s day collection.

Just to help u understand how the shaker looks

an altered hoop tutoria - GDT at rainbow craftykari 2017

Hello dear crafters ,

Well, this month  I decided to revamp my cleaning cloth ! it was in the beginning my handkerchief but then I used it to wipe off all the excess water in my projects and it ended up all dirty and had a hole too , and for long another altered hoop was in my to do list so I combined both of those to revamp it into a totally bright thanking goodie (trust me no one will ever find out what it was before !)

So lets begin ,grab your supplies and let your imaginations fly!

 firstly fit the handkerchief in the hoop and secure with backing ring , trim of the excess from behind.

coat the entire with guesso (front and back ) and allow to dry . until then grab ur supplies 
i used some broken clay embellishments i made using prima mould .(supplies pic attached )

then stencil the hoop and cover the heart with guesso and metal beads 

now its time to make a layout use multi medium gel from finnabair projects. it perfectly sticks, glue gun can be used for the themacol heart 

i used a thank u tag too (as this is a gift for a dear friend)
i also added a fussy cut butterfly .

(i love it all white too :P)

then spray with the colors of your choice loads of options available in the store .

glorious butterfly. u can hilight with shimmer and glossy accents 

thanks for dropping by. hope u are inspired !
