Happiness Tissue Box

Every one of us is using paper napkins. Whether it is Kitchen, Dining table, Car, Work desk or Kids’ study, paper napkins have become integral part of our daily living. Wish we could reinvent this staid and unattractive looking napkin box to go with our surrounding themes. That is exactly what I am trying to change today. Presenting “HAPPINESS TISSUE BOX” made with mix media. 

The fun with mix media is that you can give the product a look and color that you desire it to be given – in order to make the product gel with its surroundings. I have given a earthy look to the box. I have used laces, trinkets, flowers on the top with a liberal coat of Gesso topped up with Little Lindys Spray. The sides of the box has been painted with Little Lindys Spray using gel medium and stencils to give it a raised (embossed) look.
I am sure you would like this collection.

Mixed Media Layout 12"X12" with tutorial

Dear Friends and Crafters

There are times when one creates such a product that he/she may also be surprised at his own creation. Leonardo da Vinci if did not pick up his brush one day and decided that he would create “Mona Lisa”… he just let his creativity flow and what came out was a masterpiece that even today we get mesmerized by seeing it. The feeling of satisfaction of creating something which you feel is a reflection of nearly your best, is indeed immense. I am nowhere in comparison with such legends but I am having the same feeling today as I present to you my latest creation “The Moonlight” – a photoframe using mix media, which I consider is my best work till date.Here's the pix...

Here's the tutorial
For this frame, I first applied “Gesso” acrylic color on a chip board to prepare base for my working


 Then I pasted some laces using Mod Podge and heating tool.

Then I used some TCW (the crafters workshop) templates with “Liquites Light Modelling Paste” color to create shapes (honey comb, butterfly) on the base itself. This is important since later when I would use color sprays these bases would come out vibrantly giving a total different look to the creation, Without these undulations in base, the base will look flat.

Then I used flowers, trinkets etc, to define the boundaries of the place where the photo would be placed. Since these flowers would be painted and repainted subsequently, you may not use your best flowers here.

After making your desired combination of the flowers and trinkets in the created base, apply a uniform layer of “Gesso” on it. This would make all things blend together and create a base on which colors may be applied to give any sort of look.

Then I used color sprays (Lindys Stamp Gang) of various hues to get a “moonlight” look to the frame – white but still resplending the orange and golden hue of the sun.

I hope you would also like the creation as much as I loved creating it.
