Anything But A Card Challenge # 43 : New Beginnings


Another super short and quick post to share my DT project for Anything But A Card Challenge Blog. This month our theme is 'New Beginnings'. With the start of a fresh new year, this theme is so appropriate. You can interpret it any way you like. Maybe you want to document something that you plan to do this year, or may be you want to recycle something old and forgotten and give it a new beginning. For inspiration, do check out the blog and the fabulous projects made by the design team. We share inspiration and the team's interpretation every week.

For my project, I had very limited time since my life has been crazy busy this month. I decided to incorporate a quote about new beginnings in my brand new art journal. Since the project had to be done super fast, it's not very complicated or involved but I like what I achieved. Hope you like it too.

I used Gesso, Silk acrylic glazes, acrylic paints, some new stamps and stencil for this. The sentiment is created using vinyl stickers. For some reason it looks crooked in the picture which is driving me nuts. I did ask my husband to look at it and it looked okay to him, so I don't know.:-)

Anyway, that's all I have for now.Do visit the ABAC blog and participate. We would love to see you there.

Last project of 2014! (Photo Heavy)


First of all thank you to those who visited and commented on my last post. I am humbled that you still took the time to comment even though I have been rubbish at supporting you.

Today's post is a quick one to show the last project I did in 2014.I did a set of custom themed door hangers for a client who wanted to give them away as Christmas gifts. She had very specific requirements and knew exactly what she wanted, so that helped a lot.

Starting with my favourite out of the lot.:-)

The second one is for a newly wed couple who are in love with purple. I love the texture on this one. It does not show up in the picture but its all shimmery. I used the Prima color bloom sprays on this one and some gold flakes.
This one is for a little girl obsessed with pink and fairies and butterflies.:-).This is also textured and sparkly. I used my Crafter's workshop stencil and glitter paste on this one.
This one is double sided. One side for a book loving new mommy.
and the other for her new born baby girl
On to some for the guys
This one is for a travel loving guy.
Another for a stylish party animal.
Last and my least favourite. Something for a photography buff. I had the hardest time making this one because I was all burnt out after finishing all the others within a very tight timeline. The paper in the background has some photography related words on it and I bought some digital elements for this one but for some reason it does not make me very happy. Thankfully the client liked it otherwise I was all out of ideas.;-)
Okay,that's it.Hope you don't mind the photo heavy post.I will see you again when and if I am inspired enough to make some other project.Till then,stay blessed and stay happy.

A little late but a happy happy new year!


How is everybody! I have taken a conscious break from blog world and interwebs in general since the past few months. I badly needed to get some balance in my life and to spend some time thinking about my aims, goals,aspirations and also spend some time with family and friends.This time away has been a blessing and kind of cool. I thought I will miss it but I didn't.The only thing I miss is visiting your blogs and revelling in your creativity

.I have not yet decided when I will be back to my regular schedule,but I did not want to miss this opportunity to thank all my followers and friends who took the time out and encouraged and challenged me in my creative endeavours. So here's a BIG THANK YOU AND A WET SLOPPY VIRTUAL KISS (on the cheek ,lol) to all of you who visit me. I love you all!I will visit you soon.

Happy new year. Hope you dream big this year and hope all your dreams come true.

Till then,
