Hello Everyone,

Zalak here back again with the second part of my continue project. You can check first part here.


So let’s start with another two project.

2. Mixed Media Frame


Brief Info about Frame:

  • I have started with rectangular canvas, adhered some Popsicle Sticks, Butterfly, Swirl MDF cutout and some glue drops.
  • Once everything is dried, I have applied gesso, each and every corner.
  • Awaiting Gesso to dry (phewww…..), after 15mins, I have first take some black acrylic paint, applied over left top and right bottom corner.
  • Then start spraying Pearl Ink Spray –  Glooming Pinkover black acrylic paint. And from Right top corner to left bottom corner, I have sprayed Pearl Ink Spray – Neon Carrot. (It’s an Alcohol, I sprayed three to four times after every coat dried).
  • To finish my frame, I have sprinkle some Mermaid Crystal Powderand adhered chipboard sentiment middle of butterfly.

3. Scrapbook Layout


Brief about Scrapbook Layout:

  • I have started with some plain background pattern paper, and distressed it’s edges with scissors.
  • Applied clear gel so that I can work on paper, once it is dried I have used Gesso and dry brush around my layout then I had take some stencil and applied embossing paste.
  • While layout was drying, I have stamped some Altenew Persian Motif Stamp Set on white CS and colored it with Steadler Luna pencils.
  • Die cut Stamped images, some leaves from brown and green CS.
  • Once the embossing paste was dried, I have started spraying Pearl Ink Spray – Neon Carrot, Glooming Pink, and Pacific Blue in a circle shape.
  • Then waiting for inks to dry naturally, I took my daughter photo and adhere it on scrap pieces of corrugated cardboard.
  • Now it’s dried completely. It’s time to finish my layout. I have started with photo, adhered it to a right side of a layout. Stamped some sentiments and pattern here and there.
  • Then started attaching stamped images, leaves, some butterflies, chipboard cutout and finish my layout with some Mermaid Crystal Powder around photo.

So, that’s all from me today. I hope you all liked my project and share some love in a comment box.

A little about myself, my native is Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Presently staying in Chennai, Tamil Nadu since past 5 years. I am a wife to an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and a mother to a beautiful daughter. I started crafting with Quilling, then I have spread my wings into card-making, stamping, water-coloring, decoupaging and many more. I am known for my thoughtfully design, quality and the finishing in my handmade cards, scrapbook albums, mixed media, shadow boxes, organizers. Even though it is turning from my passion to profession, I have same enthusiasm and zeal to learn and innovate more and more through crafting and designing.

  • I have started spraying Pearl Ink Spray – Pacific Blue and randomly applied with wide paint brush.
  • While It was drying, I have cut some hills with border dies from white CS and write sentiment using black brush pens.
  • Once the background is dried, I splattered some white acrylic paint using paint brush to make background to look a like winter snow.

Guest Design Post (Part 2): Altered Perfume Bottle By Preeti Datta

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti D. (aka Dutt Preety) here. This is my second Guest Design Post for Madras Bazaar. In case, you’d like to check out Part 1, please click HERE. I’ve used the Madras Bazaar Pearl Ink Sprays here. These are alcohol based, so for blending the colors, you will need the blending solution. These dry fast and give a shimmery look to the project.

I’ve created a Mixed Media Altered Perfume Bottle for you today. I had a lot of fun making it, so let’s get started.

Altered Perfume Bottle

Here are a few photos of the project:

  1. Took an empty perfume bottle and applied 2 coats of heavy white gesso on it to prep the surface
  2. Using 3D matte gel adhered a few metal charms to the bottle.
  3. Applied white crackle paste to the bottle and let it air dry so as to get the desired crackle effect
  4. Added art stones at some places using 3D matte gel & brushed on some white gesso on the charms and art stones
  5. Once everything was dry, applied color using 3 of the Pearl Ink spraysCharcoal Black, Vibrant Green & Shock Blue
  6. To finish the project, applied a little Opal Magic Wax to some of the raised surfaces using my fingers.

That’s all for today.
