Challenge # 29 - Vacation /Travel/ Holidays and New DT

Hi Friends,
Karuna here,
Thanks for joining us at Challenge #28. I am excited about our new challenge and more over for a fabulous new Design Team member who has been wowing us with her perfectly awesome creations in many of the previous Lulupu challenges. She has a versatile way of working in her projects and I personally enjoy her layouts a lot.

Please Welcome


Hello everybody!!
Thank you so much Karuna and Team Lulupu! Friends, this is Jaya here. I am a dentist by profession and a crafter since my childhood. I love to try and experiment with all kinds of paper crafting and altered art creations. Its been almost two years since I started a blog and in the two years I have learnt a lot from all the talented ladies out there. It all started when I first came across Lulupu online shop and today I am so glad to be a part of the design team of Lulupu-The Craft Lounge! I hope I can inspire you all throughout my term with The Lulupu team!

I welcome you all to our brand new challenge for the fortnight.

Here is my project for inspiration

This is a Road Trip Vacation layout. The picture is one of my favourite and so I decided to scarp it! My layout is 12"x12" size. For the initial background I made use of Sakura Gesso and  misted at random with the Lindy's starburst sprays and Flat Fabios. I Also made use of the Lindy's Mad Hatter Magicals. I cannot seem to overcome my obsession with Lindy's stamp gang products now! Try them and I am sure you will end up using them in all thing you make. Very addictive! Once it was dry I did some stamping with black archival ink .

I  also used stencils and inks on the background. Then using Sakura modelling paste mixed with black acrylic paint I did some stencilling to give extra textures .The raised effect really looks gorgeous in real!
Once my background was done, all that was left was arrangement of the picture and the pattern papers. I also made use of canvas papers and washi tape to make the layers stand out. I used some die-cuts , wood veneers, glossy accents ,acrylic paints, thread as well.

 I did some faux stitching all along the borders, lots of paper distressing with my favourite tool by Prima and some  Lindy's mist and paint splattering too . Doesn't that look cool!
Hope you like my layout
