Its Tuesday Again:Anything Goes At Tuesday Alchemy

Its Tuesday again and while you go through this post I would have changed my status from single to "married" and will be on the train to my new train!!! Finally, the chaos and planning is over and a new life has started.....

Now coming to the DT  job!!...We at Tuesday Alchemy have the theme Anything Goes this week so just share whatever you made from cards to scrapbooks candles to mixed media ...anything and everything....

For this week our sponsor is Sassy Studio Design

Now take a look at what I did for the challenge.....

Loads of textures and layers added....

Used my Kellogg's Box to make the tag...painted it with acrylic paints and added gauge bandage cloth with  Mod Podge to give textures...and again painted it...added a net on one side and colored again...gosh this really tried my patience for you have to wait for each layer to dry and then go to the next one...Phew!!!

Closer look to spot the layers and textures....

Lower half....

Upper half....

I guess one can see the layers better in this pic.....This Tag was sent to a friend at Ireland for a Tag Swap at 2 Shabby Sisters Studio

Hope you all like it and do hop to the Tuesday Alchemy blog and share your creations with us....The other DT's have also done a wonderful job at their DT projects so do leave them a line of love :)

Invites for My Wonderful Dahling Ananya Kaho

My nieces and nephews are my life....and when my sister in law asked me to do the birthday invites for Ananya and Lavanya (Kaho and Mio -their Japanese names) ..I was more than happy and excited...

The brief was simple..just over the phone call..."I love all princesses and fairies...and my favourite colour is pink" (4years old that she is ...she is a typical girl) and I could here someone snatch the phone to say..."Jasmine  and purple" (2 years but far more specific and focused than the elder one)...the younger ones invite as still in making so sharing Ananya's for the time being!!!

The Cinderella  is a stamp stamped on Brustro and coloured with Tombow Markers....

The Wreath is a Memory Box die cut ...

Closer look at the cards....

Another look...

Its a slider pop up the standing state...

The invitation details in the pull out tag behind and in the front there is space for a personal message to be written by my brother in sister in law....

The Invites will be used in Hong Kong during the month of January....had to do it in advance thanks to my wedding....and am crunched for time now...:(

Another angle...

Closer look at the Princess....

Hope you all like it ...your comments help me understand my drawbacks and strengths so please do leave a line so that I can improve my work....:)

Anything But A Card at Tuesday Alchemy

Hi Friends,
I know am not too active on the blogland currently but thanks to Tuesday Alchemy I shall catch up with all of you every week.....with my wedding preparations going full swing I really have no time for crafting so am happy with this every week connect that I can do with you all for the next month or two....

Coming to the new challenge on Tuesday Alchemy ....we have "Anything But A Card" this week think...think ...think...and any project of yours other than a Card is most welcome ....and our sponsors this week are

1. Di's Digi Download

2. Hugs 4 the Heart Designs 

And now without much ado lets see what I made for my DT inspiration for the challenge...

I get excited with every project but its really fun to put on the thinking cap to try something other than cards and scrapbooks....I have done this memo board (bulletin board/notice board) before for my exhibition but didn't have good photos plus that was my first time so that was purely experimental and impromptu...while this had a planning and proper design done....

This is how one can put the project to use....and it also has space to stick a photograph  ....

While I made one for the DT post ....I could not stop with this and ended up making two more...Have a look....


A sister themed memo board.....with load of Itsy Bitsy Blooms and bright colors....

Another Family themed Memo Board...

All three together.......Hope you like ...Do drop by the Tuesday Alchemy Blog to see what the other DTs have done and leave them some join in with your creations and share with us for the Anything But A Card Challenge
