Over to Vrinda.....

Hey Guys… This is Vrinda here.  First of all a big thank you to Karuna and her team for this opportunity !

I am a person who wears a lot of different hats !… By profession I am a Jewelry and Accessory designer .. I also work as a design faculty. Crafting and reading are my two biggest love’s … though crafting seems to be inching to the top as I am getting more and more addicted to all forms of stamping, heat embossing and not to forget mixed media. I love experimenting and trying different things with the supplies that I have.

And now for this month's challenge - 'scrap your scraps'

 Everything that I have used in this layout has been leftover from previous projects.And  this is how I started...

I first adhered strips of newspaper to a rescued chipboard and then, arranged my strips of pattern paper on a (previously cut out) heart. I then applied a light coat of Gesso on the newspaper (heat dried it ) and then misted it with Lindy’s starburst sprays.

 I used a TCW stencils and modeling paste in the background …  and then again misted it till I achieved the effect that I liked 

I then pasted my scrap pattern paper heart ( which I lightly edged with distress ink) and then embellished it with some hearts that were again the negatives from a previously made frame.

I hope my Mixed Media Layout inspires you  to use up your scraps too!… and enter this Amazing challenge.

Lots of love
