Guest designer - July

 Hello crafters,

Today we have Sobana as our guest designer. She is the winner of our last month challenge.
Would like to guest design in our blog, then join our monthly challenges.

Over to her
Hi everyone,
am Sobana Menta popularly known as CraftsbyVarna in the crafting world.I am extremely delighted to have shared one of my projects for splashy mix challenges.I have been crafting for two years now and being a dancer there has always been a creative side of me to be innovative and do something different. 
Thank every crafter and friend for sharing their knowledge and my family for their support.

I started  with decoupage and slowly started exploring mixed media .My recent passion has been alcohol inks .
Hope you all enjoy my make.

You can connect with me at
https://www.facebook.com/CraftsbyVarna/
https://artcraftsbyvarna.wordpress.com/

This months theme at Splashy Mix Challenges is “Cherish Yourself”.A wonderful theme ,a reminder for every person who lose themselves in today‘s rat race.

There have been many times when I have involuntarily compared myself with my near and dear, however I have realized over the period of time that I have to “Own Myself”.
Fat or thin, short or tall, Fair or Dark We are what we are and let’s enjoy ourselves.
I took a 10″*12″ canvas and primed it using gesso from Itsy bitsy. Took a few puzzle pieces from a worn out puzzle of my son and arranged it randomly on the canvas.

Randomly applied crackle texture paste from Itsy Bitsy .Used stencils from expression crafts and stenciled the canvas with texture paste from expression to the desired parts.


Gave an even layer of black gesso to the canvas and allowed it to air dry.Meanwhile selected the pic I wanted to use and placed it on a cardboard for giving it a 3d look.
Once dried gave the canvas a vintage look by alternating it with waxes from Itsy bitsy.Gave the puzzle pieces dimension by outlining them with blue wax.
Arranged my pic in the centre gave it an outline using laces.


Decorated the sides with flowers from Itsy Bitsy and chipboards from Papericious. Splashed diluted white gesso to give it a vintage look.


Finally arranged the quotes on the canvas and placed a woman chipboard from Papericious to complete the look.


I would like to end by telling that do remember friends “Beauty lies in the eyes of the Beholder“.

Cherish and enjoy every moment.

Thank you
