Camera Album

Photography is an art of Observation.

It has little to do with the things you see,

And everything to do with,

the way you see them.

-Elliot Erwitt

11 Different Birthday Card

When someone near and dear to your heart turns another year older, you’ll want to do everything you can to make their day extra memorable.

Whether you’re throwing a birthday party, a cocktail party or planning a dinner at the honoree’s favorite restaurant, it’s tradition to give the guest of honor a Happy Birthday card. 

This year, say “Happy Birthday!” with a few words that no one will forget.

Hello Everyone,

Here are some which I made for a boy whose birthday was on 11th day of a month. A special friend wants to send 11 different greeting cards of his likes. I customized as required by a friend.

Here are all the cards:

Little Wonderland Baby Album

Hello everyone,

After a long absence in blog, From last six months have made so many scrapbook albums, will soon make post for all album. I thought I should return immediately with a lot of work – a BABY ALBUM from the wonderful collection of “Little Wonderland” by Bob n Betty India.

Tell me, you conquered these critters? Me, yes, definitely and at first sight! In the near future, an album from a collection for both boy and girl, but for now I invite you to consider my work!

Why this album is different from any other usual albums which I made? This time I have added a perfect interactive TRAIN, where the Wheels of a Train moves forward and Backward in action. You can see full album YouTube video link at the end of the post.

The size of the album is 8 * 8 inches, 6 pages, almost 60 substrates for photos, and of course envelopes, secrets, interactive designs of moving Train Wheel and a slider (everything like I and our customers like).

This post is picture heavy, I hope you’ll stay with me till this post ends.

So, here is the first look of an album

DSC03550DSC03557DSC03558

I have created a shaker window, stamped sentiment and sequins from MUDRA CRAFT STAMPS, some PAPERICIOUS CHIPPIES, some of my die cuts.

DSC03561DSC03563DSC03562

 I have also made a closer for an album with some unique charms, which is also from stash.

DSC03553DSC03559

 As this album is for a Baby (who is not in this world till now, but a client wants to record a memory from pregnancy to baby’s first year. As this album can be made for Baby Boy or Girl) I started making pages from the pregnancy stage.

 DSC03567

 I have colored the Lady with zig clean real brush markers, stamped baby ultra-sound image with distress ink.

 DSC03568

This is how the first page looks when open. The bricks behind the lady I have created with MUDRA BRICK STENCILS using vintage photo distress ink. All the critters and sentiments are from paper pack itself.

DSC03572

 This is my second page, with some flaps and interactive element.

DSC03573

The interactive element is this cute, little BEAR, it will wobble.

When you open the clasps, you’ll see sixth and (after star element) seventh page.

Now, It comes the most awaiting TRAIN POP UP CARD, which is attached with magnet at the bottom of the album.

Let’s see some closer looks,

I have attached picture in a collage so that at a first moment you can see all the interactive elements of TRAIN. (Starts from top left, then right, then second row left and so on…)

Here is the single picture of a TRAIN.

Mixed Media Tag

Hello everyone,

Today I am post very different technique which I want to do from very long time but I was not able to do or else I can say I didn’t get opportunity to make mixed media project. I made this tag for a one ATC swap group on facebook, I hope you’ll stay till post ends.

1

Ok so this was my first try, and used homemade Gesso and Modeling Paste. For colors I have used zig markers and distress oxide ink. I was expecting a better result with use of modeling paste as I can’t see stencil and gold embossing powder. I think I need to make another modeling paste.

Here are some close up images,

for butterfly I have used glossy accent and diamond dust. My daughter was really want her photo with this project, and I really like she is slowly involving herself in craft, so here are some photos of her.
