Decoupage - shelf

While learning decoupage I had made of on  aluminium plate and recently I had done it on my craft table . As I'm preparing my craft room and decorating with handmade items, thought of decoupaging on a shelf I have.
Here is the shelf, I got it made from a carpenter:
I wanted to give this Victorian look, chose very mild color. Back side first one coat painted with primer and then painted with pista green.
For the top and the sides selected the pista green color paper with rose prints. I just loved the paper!
After attaching and painting , it looks like this:
And now for the inner side of the shelf, I wanted to paste same pista green paper, which I had chosen  for the top and sides. But there was shortage of paper for the inner side. So used two different kinds of papers.
Here is how it looks after pasting the paper:

As a final touch of giving Victorian look , attached the thread lace which my friend had given, to the borders.
This is how it looks now.


I hope it has now at least little bit of Victorian look, what I'm murmuring :-). This I have kept in my craft room, with my craft items. I will share about other handmade items in my craft room in the coming posts.

Wall Decal from Kakshyaachitra

Wall decal is becoming a latest trend in interior decoration now. I had received the Warli design wall decal from one of the leading wall decal designers Kaksyaachitra. They have very beautiful and varieties of designs. The varieties caters to maximum needs of customers. There are several categories of designs such as ethnic, modern, nature , people, sports etc( . Whatever kind of design you like you can choose.
Coming back to the design I had selected- Warli design. When I choose the design , they had informed me that it was complicated design. Still I chose that, because I wanted to paint a wall with Warli design. The package arrived within 4 days. But I could not get the time to mount that,because of several issues in my life. This Deepavali, I decided to decorate my house with the wall decal. When I opened the package ,I got  a page with set of instructions.

 Instructions were very clear, and easy to follow. Here is the beautiful  design.

It has one transparent paper and the design is  sandwiched between the transparent paper and white paper. The white paper has to be removed.Here is how it is.

 My son helped a lot to remove the white paper. He was enjoying a lot. :)
 The the transparent paper with the design should be mounted on the wall. The transparent paper get stuck to the wall.
Slowly the transparent paper should be removed. The design gets stuck to the wall and it looks beautiful too.
The process is very simple. I had the plan of painting a wall with Warli designs. It would have taken few days for me to paint. With wall decal from Kakshyaachitra I could finish the design within one hour. It looks very elegant. Thank you Kakshyaachitra .

Customized card making

Its already years I made cards. Few years back I had made quilled cards for teacher's day because of my son's demand. Recently inspired by many card makers, again getting back to card making. I had the occasion too.
In our custom, when a baby starts walking , and the baby crosses the main door of the house, we celebrate it . In Kannada its called "Door crossing ceremony"(ಹೊಸಲು ತುಳಿಯುವುದು). One of my friends had invited me to the ceremony. She has twin babies. So I decided to make a card to wish them. I chose yellow handmade paper, to show the brightness.

And made a door with ice cram stick, in the shape of door. Attached the shape of feet using punchcraft.

Painted the door with wood color, acrylic paint

 As it was the ceremony for twin babies , glued two small baby punchcrafts and some embellishments which I had bought.
Outside glued some punch craft flowers and pearl embellishments.
I made this card to conceptualize my wish to the babies, "You are coming out of the house first time crossing thr door.Let your path be filled with flowers wherever you go".
I'm slowly getting back to paper-craft . Hope to make some more cards.Surely share all my expiriences with you all,

Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
