Hello friends,

Its time for a new challenge at Tuesday Alchemy. The theme for this fortnight challenge is OVER THE PASTEL RAINBOW.

The Sponsors for the Prizes are:
DI's DigiDownloads - $10 store voucher
Stitchy Bear Stamps - $10 Store Voucher
LEJDesigns - 4 Digital Images

Please visit Tuesday Alchemy to see what the other Design Team have come up with and play with us !!!

For my contribution, I made this Journal in monochromatic blue theme as the DTs were challenged to choose one pastel color and I chose 'BLUE' :)

The front page is stamped, embossed and inked with distress inks .

Here is the second page with a Die cut photo frame to insert photo!

The Third page with a pocket to keep mini tags and a clip to hold small papers!

Another pocket with pages to keep momories!

This page has a felt pocket to keep papers and hold pins!

All the flowers and tags were cut with silhouette cameo and were then colored with different shades of blue. I have used ribbons, diecuts , twine and laces to embellish this project. I loved making this Journal and it was really a challenge for me to make it in 'ONE' color :)
Hope you like it :)

The Cupcake is a silhouette cut file by Bird's Card. I have scored the cupcake with scoring board and the frosting is done by heat embossing with the glitter embossing powder.

Bon appetit!!

Sea Shells !

Hello Friends,

I have been making cards for sometime now. Recently I have also been experimenting with clay based projects. So after experimenting with a few things I decided to make a fridge magnet. Today I am sharing with you a recently made fridge magnet. It is inspired by the beautiful beaches and coastline of Abu Dhabi, UAE. The shells used were collected by my daughters :)

Another pic :)

The project is mainly made with clay. First the shells are colored with acrylic paint and then pressed on wet clay. Post drying,  I glued sand underneath the shells and colored the sea with blue acrylic color. The writing is computer generated which is glued and then sealed by brushing the white glue over the top of  the paper.  To seal and protect I sprayed the 'Clear Coat Glaze' over the entire structure. Finally, I glued a magnet at the back of  it... and my fridge magnet is ready:))

Hope you like it !!
