|The basic page cutting such that the book can be folded shut|
I wanted to use a metallic lace (which you will see as an outline of the walls) I have been hoarding for a while. It’s also perfect to add a vintage look. For creating a vintage look to the walls I applied modeling paste though a lace and inked it orange.
|See the walls texture, created by stenciling through a lace with modeling paste|
|Note the stairways|
For the cover of the book refer this link to see how I did it.

Most of the miniatures I have made from card board. The candle stand and the dressing table were both made in a vintage style to add as accessories. There is also a little doll there , a rightful resident of this doll house!
Hope you liked my story book!!

Another challenge that truly got me starting was CSCC #14 mixed media challenge. The romantic picture kept making me this of candle light. In the picture I loved the magnifying effect with a dash of bright red which steals all attention.
So there I was sitting in my crafting area staring at an old cardboard box. I knew I wanted to make a candle light holder, but these 2 pictures set my mood going.
I am making this as an inspiration for the unstampablles challenge with a theme of family tree with a twist to make it vintage. I interpreted the theme slightly differently to think of members of the family as different elements of a tree (flower/ fruits, roots, flora , fauna), with light meaning family bond in the center.

This month’s theme at unstampabelles is Harmony or/and Peace with a twist to incorporate flight into your article. I made of a card with angels as the first thing that comes to my mind are angels.
For the angels and the frame I have used gelatos. For the sky I have used ink and spray while for the moon (which is my favourite I have used gesso and ink for a 3D effect. All of the drawing are freehand …….Hope you liked it.

The festive season always brings loads of inspiration for me. This month at unstampabelles, is to create a thank you memento with a twist to take inspiration from something just outside the window. So as I head to my window, this is what I see looking closer.
So taking inspiration from this I decided to make a Thank you gift bag. I made plenty of these as a return gift for my daughters birthday now.
This is a quick goodie bag I made up of hand made paper. I also made crepe paper flowers and added silver twine as a handle.
Well, I made 20 of these and packed them with toys and chocolates. They are quick to make, fun to decorate and add a whole new flavor to the gifts. And kids love them (as much as the mommies!)

To go with the summer time my Santa (hand sketched) is in his swimwear on the beach. I have made a palm tree by simply cutting and swirling paper and stuck metallic glitter buttons. And now for the fun part, have filled this plastic with glitter powder, sand and white beads. I have added lots of glitter powder to reduce the weight of the sand (although in the picture its not so clear I know).I have stuck Christmas sentiment stickers from imaginationsonline.
And the best part of this is that when the card it kept flat the glitter and sand spreads all over, but when held straight it gathers right at Santas feet. For the background I have painted on a water color paper (remember my 60 sec water color technique!)
This month at unstampabelles the theme is Summer fun - twist: to make a Southern Hemisphere Christmas card: Sponsored by Bizzy Bec http://www.bizzybecscardmakingscrapbooking.com.au/

Something most Indian Homes do is draw a rangoli at the entrance of their how like a welcome gesture. Rangoli these days is a colorful sand/ marble powder which is thrown into patterns and shapes to create great pieces of art or design. Here is a glimpse of the Rangoli I made at our entrance.....
|This one was huge 6 X 6 feet|
|this one was smaller 3 feet...|
|Come sunset, and we light up with tea candles|
And lastly, I cant resist but share with u a glimpse of these colorful sugar puffs i made
Yes, if you did notice, this festive I was obsessed with peacocks!!!..I even ensured everyone in my house was wearing peacock- colored dresses!!!

- Coated the masking tape with black gesso.
- Next rubbed silver embossing powder onto the black with a sponge. At this stage naturally the protruding portion gets colored.
- I cut out an oval shape of thick paper and coated it with foil for making a mirror.
- Since I did not have a mirror border chipboard of this size, i decided to go with a cut out from a piece of lace.
- After having picked the lace you want to use, cut it to dimension and dip it in glue, such that it hardens when dry and become stiff.
- Post this I dabbed it again with black gesso.
- The small beads paired very well with color combo and used that for my drawers and mirror.

I received 2 packs of rubons with very handy sentiments, a pack of Epoxy stickers and bottle caps, a pack of 3d Foam tabs, a pack of die cut stickers, pack of epoxy embellishments and embellishments. Imaginationsonline is definitely a place for embellishments. This packet had pretty butterfly metal embellishments, plastic buttons, wood buttons, wooden shaped embellishments, plastic embellishments, gears, mini keys. The very adorable baby embellishments, paired with stickers are perfect for baby projects.
My favorite are the handmade flowers from happy crafters, these are very versatile and are ideal for mixed media projects. The little heart shaped buttons are so cute and will pair them up with my stamping projects.
Now my brain is already all over the place looking for craft inspirations. ..Keep checking for more on how I use these goodies in my projects.
