A Quilled Fairy Garden

Hello Friends,

I'm back with another quilling project. It is quite an amazing experience making each part of it.
Take a look.

For this I took a chocolate box as the base. It is a cardboard box. I filled it with thermocol and cut a circular part for making the space for the pool. I colored the base grey to get a nice raw stone effect. Then I cut a plastic bottle and painted blue from outside to make it a pool. Once the base is done, I make the house with cardboard. I am planning to make a tutorial on how I made the house. If I do, then will definitely post it. Once the house is done I painted it and placed at the desired place. Then I placed a stone to show as a rock in the garden.

Then I made the tree beside the house. Once I completed it, I covered the trunk part with brown tape to give an older effect. Then I made these flower pots and glued them. Then made the bushes and the grass. Placed a snail on the grass beside the rock.  Placed sea shells around the pool to create a magical effect and also put them as stepping stones.

I used Pop Sticks to make the fence by simply gluing them.
Some closer look of my garden...

Art Journal #18

Hello Friends,

This month my son will celebrate his birthday.
 As I was making his spider man photo booth and other small essentials he demanded, I thought of making a journal page for him.
Though he likes to interfere in all my art works as he loves coloring so much, this time he calmly enjoyed as what Mommy is making for him. He advised me here n there also.

So, let's take a look

First I applied gesso on the page and let it completely dry. Then some random stamping here n there. Then I painted the entire surface with acrylic paint. I mixed water to get a lighter shade and then cut some paper to make an uneven banner. I stamped the letters individually and then cut and glued on the banner. 
Next i stamped the small hearts and Butterflies, colored and hand cut them, then glued on the page.
The emotions are also stamped and glued to finish up the look.

If my works inspire u leave some love in comments below.

Every child is SPECIAL to their parents. I made this page for my son.
These strips and banners and the flower are from an OLD magazine, I used my NEW butterfly stamps, and painted the entire page BLUE.

Butterfly Cards

Hi Friends...
Today I'm here to share two cards which I made using the same stamp sets.
Right now I'm trying my hands on different techniques of card making and the first one here is a kind of experiment. But I'm happy with the outcome though I wasn't quite sure when I started making it.

Here is it...

Now to the technique...
I first stamped the butterfly stamp using Versamark clear stamp and then started the coloring once it was dried. No embossing at all. Just the coloring and yes all the butterflies were clearly visible. I forgot to take a picture of the process while making this one. Sharing another stamped card with the same technique.
Here is the card right after stamping...

So, as you can see the butterflies here...
I started coloring on it and then after I colored the entire card I used fabrecastle watercolor sketch pens for the shading of the butterflies. Then I sprayed some shimmer on the card using a paint brush. Hope it is visible in the photo. After adding the stamped sentiment from Pennyblack I added a few sequins to complete the look.

Now coming on to my next card.
Here also I tried to create a background with the stamps.
I used Beautiful butterfly and leafy stamp from Mudra again with distress ink. Water-colored the butterflies and then added a hand cut stamped butterfly on the sentiment.
Here is the card...

I love the bright colors of the cards.
