ICR Best Selling Author!

Hello Everyone!

Am finally here to blog about the August wonderful ATC Trade on ICR....


Theme being "Let's Be Novelists" I so loved the theme & was so happy about the thought to it :D

So here is what I worked on to be a novelist on a miniature card :)

For the first I was inspired by one of my poems from the past.... I had titled it On The Roads Of Life!

And to make my novel cover I printed out a digi from my past stash... It was a cute image I so loved for it had everything so perfect to make one fall in love, yet again.... :) Am a love bird; A romantic & would remain so till the end...   :*

So yes... I printed it out to the size I required & colored it with bic markers;

 To give it the feel of a novel cover, I worked on the likes on photoshop & then printed out a rough copy on print paper to know how it seems...
After which I adhered my ATC layer on which I had already adhered the colored image with a magazine cut out of a road in the midst of a forest area, on the print paper above the rough print on it;
It printed it out well though with a lil mishaps on it.... The cardstock being thicker than the print paper may have led it to lose its positioning in turn leading to damage the printing process a lil; Hence you can see the print missing on at the beginning & end...

However everything seemed to sink in well making me very proud about the way my theme was brought into life on the miniature paper;

And this was the other ATC Novel cover I worked on.... And it was again inspired by another poem I had scribbled from past.... I had titled it "Ghost Of The Dark"!

I worked on it the same way as I did for the above novel cover.... This image was again a digi from past stash & finally had a chance to work on it & quite liked the way it turned out.... but for the printing goof ups which seem really bad here on this; Yet it felt not so bad & hence I just let it be than meddling on it further.... :)

And yes the ATCs were sent out to my partners & really hope they liked it.... 'cuz I loved it & is very dear to me....

Being proud of what I made I even went to an extent of bringing up my novel covers alive.... ;)

Lightly adhered it on to a mini diary I had just to feel the feel of a novel cover....

CoasteRide Septorial - A Lil More Of Stamps!

Hello Everyone!

We are towards the end of 2016 when we had just awakened to its beginning..... I dont understand what happening with time!

Anyways..... Another month brings in another CoasteRide Challenge on the Indian Craft Room....
However, for the month of September it has been paused... Instead it has been replaced with another thought.... Thought of playing tutorials for all.....

No challenge..... No sponsorship.....

just simply watch.... learn.... create..... share..... And we are calling it The CoasteRide Septorials!!!!


Every week One PART member would be sharing a tutorial based project either through pictures or a video shoot....

So it begins with me Alphabetically..... And I bring my project on a videorial!!!!

And this is what I made.....

And beneath is the videorial to the same!!!



{Not a very good video 'cuz of the lack of so many things which I normally have in place to make it seamless as much as i can.... However the shredded me is left with very lil options}

Hence I did not leave it at that.... And made another set of projects on the same lines.....

And beneath I would be sharing a pictorial to the same.... Hope that helps a lil more!

Since its a PICTORIAL.... Kindly bear with me....

Here is the project for you....

 photo Njoy Lil_zpszo5ii4ye.jpg

Lets begin..... (y)

Here is what you would need....

1. Your favorite Stamp set
2. A CS as a layer on card base
3. Craft Knife
4. Scissor
5. Your favorite inks

{For some reason this pic & the one following this just does not paste itself or pose itself straight as to be easy to the eyes... So kindly ignore the irk in your eyes :( }

 On this project instead of my ink pads I have used my bic marker to ink the stamp to use....


 So now ink the stamp adhered to the acrylic block....

 & stamp stamp the stamp on to the CS layer till your are happy of it "dying" on your CS... ;)

 Ink the stamp again & let it "dye" again on a rough sheet of paper which you would be cutting out to adhere on the image so as to mask it well....

 Now you would use your favorite background stamp for the lovely background on your card project.... As you stamp over the already existing image mask the image beneath is left safely untouched....



 Once you are done with your required background to be pleasing your eyes, peel off the mask.... And TADA..... You have your lovely focal image intact with neat background in its vicinity....
 Now the fun part.....

Take your craft knife & smoothly make neat cuts around the spaces of the background images that you would wanna add an extra dimension to.... which would in turn come across beautifully to the crafting eyes...
 When you make the cuts instead of moving your hand with the knife around the image.... its better you move the paper completely helping your hand & knife to sync well with the work....

 Once you have made your cuts, its time to work on it fine.... so as to flip them open on your project.... Do not let them pop out of your project; instead just nicely & lovingly flip the added layer open.... just a lil so to make a teeny weeny peek a boo....

 There you go.... You just crafted a lil more with your usual inked up stamps.... to give your project totally a different dimension on the whole....

 Once you know of it you may go ahead & try to flip open anything & everything to add a zing to your creation taking it to another level....


Go ahead & layer it on the card base or a post card base & your project is ready with a different approach to it than your usual menu....

Here is yet another project I made similar to the above post card.... Its a regular card!

 That is it for now..... Hoping you were inspired enough to play your first septorial.....
Keep a watch for more tuts on ICR this month & all coming months.... :D

Meanwhile do check on all the exciting Swaps & Trades ICR promises you with..... Its just about pushing your envelopes....

A Tealful Birthday for ICRCMON02!

Hello....

Time for the second round of inspirations at Indian Craft Room for ICRCMON02...

Below is the story board for the same...


http://indianstampers.ning.com/group/icrchallenges/forum/topics/august-coasteride-round-2


And here is my project....

 photo TealBday_zpsifrxg6so.jpg

Been inspired by the Sketch from...

Stamplorations August Sketch Challenge

& of course our very own ICRCMON02 with the monochromatic color challenge

 photo ThePrepNew_zps5a3ccce1.jpg

The Kraft CS from Itsy Bitsy.... for the base
I stroked the blank ink cube from versa color on the card front to form a smudged layer
on which I pressed the ink cube around unevenly for a BG
I adhered a piece of chevron printed burlap piece picked from Itsy Bitsy for a layer above that
And adhered a chipboard piece in round stamped with fiskars birthday wish & a butterfly chipboard piece from stash just above the sentiment to coordinate with the sketch.... however while placing I did not quite like the circle in the place of butterfly... hence changed places of the image & sentiment to vary a lil from the sketch....
Above the sentiment & the image I then adhered a self adhesive black bling to finish the project....
