Hello All

Hope our are having an amazing week.
I am back on Connect4Sale blog with an interesting mixed media scrapbook layout in Valentine’s theme using Blooms and Berries Paperpack from Papericious

So I chose these beautiful blooms print and fussy cut them.

Now using Mudra Background stamp. I stamped randomly to form my base layer.

Using Mudra Vintage stencil added some texture paste to have an embossed effect.

I took another printed paper and tore it to have serrated edges. Distressed the edges using archival ink. I added this paper onto the base using foam tape.

Finally embellished the entire thing using fussy cuts, some paper cut images from element sheets and cute valentines theme Mdf  from Connect4sale along with  glitter.

Added our photo as focal element.

I hope you enjoyed looking into this project.

Here are some close-ups from the finished layout

Tulika Saha is a passionate crafter from The City of Joy- Kolkata. She did her Master’s Degree in Geography. Worked almost 15 years as a teacher in different reputed schools in Kolkata and Howrah, before taking up crafting as a full time career and being a stay at home mom with her son. She always had a keen interest for art and craft from childhood. She was constantly trying out new ways to upcycle things. So, she decided to invest her time to start her own venture C4Craft in crafting business after leaving her school job in 2016.

Papers always attracted her in some way or the other and this love for paper crafting became one of the main reasons for her to take up paper crafting and to turn any product into useful home decor through decoupage, scrapbook layout or mixed media! She takes orders for handmade home decors and gift items and spends her free hours by taking up decoupage & mixed media workshops in different places in Kolkata & Howrah.

Her biggest inspirations are from nature and industries and those reflect on her work too. She says “But whatever project I do, I put my soul into it and they are very close to my heart”.
