MDF Oval Frame!

I think this has to be my favorite frame shape till date, I love that oval :)
And before we get on to what I did with this frame, I wanted to show you how awesome this Craftslane Oval Frame and the ease of using it.

Here's how it looks from the front

And here's the back

The back comes with easy to move 4 latches that allow you to easily place the picture or your work of art inside. I love things that are easy to use :)

Coming on to what I did with it.

I first painted the frame with aqua green acrylic color and then I did some decoupaging using papers from an old book, Mod Podge and a foam brush. I toned down the yellow-ness of the pages with white acrylic paint.

And then I doodled and doodled, so much fun :)
All the designs have been made directly on the frame with black acrylic paint. Craftslane has a great variety and quality of paint brushes to help you 

And then I hand wrote the quote on watercolor paper and gave the paper a light wash of watercolors.

And as the final step I added some fun with Glitter Mod Podge. I hope you can see the little sprinkle of glitter in the picture above. It really adds to the project.

I made this as a gift for a new mother, love that little apt for the new baby :)

See ya around soon good people!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching
