Subhalaxmi here. I am sharing my Guest DT project for August moodboard Challenge.
Dreams remain in Dreamland until you dare to design and build them into reality. My project is all about dream.
I hope you like my project.
Hey there fellow crafters!
I hope everyone is well and finding time to do some scrapping.
I'm back today to share my new fun inspired DT layout created for Random Arts.
The card stock I used had the perfect colours to match my photo and it had a beautiful background already so I only added a little script stamping around my work area to match in with the script that was already on the card stock.
As soon as I received the crackle corner chipboard from Random Arts, I loved it and had to include it into this layout. I used Lindy's magicals to colour it (full product list at the end of post) and the colour worked in beautifully with the rest of the layout.
Once the embellishments were all in place, I added some silver crushed glass beads to make the layout sparkle.
And that's the layout done! I hope you liked it, I will be back very soon with another new layout to share.
Until next time...Happy Crafting! :)

Hello dears!This is my Guest designer post for August 2020. My project is a 3D mixed media canvas called 'Lunar Moments'. I have symbolised the dreamcatcher and the moon face designs as dreams.We have to work hard to achieve them in these testing times.
This is a step by step explanation of how I created this project
1I took the Moonface and dreamcatcher resin embellishments from the store and painted them with black gesso.
2. I then arranged all the elements on the project base to form a composition.
3. I used Purple Chalk paint and coloured the moonface and dream catcher resin embellishment and green metallic wax for the gears.
4. I also used green chalk paint to create highlights for the base of the project·
II added a few sequins and small diecuts to give a unique look to the project. This is the completed project.
The Random Arts products used in the project are:
Finnabair Cresent Moons and Large Dreamcatcher.
Keep smiling and happy crafting!
Guest Designer August 2020.
This months mood board was a little bit of a challenge for me. The purple and green colour combination is not usually colours i combine. However i'm totally happy with the end result of this Altered Candle Holder.
I started out with this very plain, gothic looking Candle Holder i've had laying around my house for many years. I covered the whole project with a good layer of white gesso. I also painted (2 crafty) chipboards, resins and a clay face i had in my stash.
I used LUMIERE (halo-violet gold) acrylic paint on all the pieces. I left a white edge on the candle holder so i could use lindy's sprays and wax to create a lush green. I also used a combination of Purple Hues Lindy's sprays over the acrylic paint. Full list of products available at the end of the blog.
I used a combination of green hues in the lindy's range to create a lush colour i was happy with. I also added a little Magical Shakers to add highlights then finally some (mint sparkle) wax until i was happy. I did the same process on the chipboards. I also added a little of the (Electric Violet) Wax to all the purple Embellishments. I used a sofy brush to add the purple wax and my finger to rub on the mint wax
I also added moss, mini prills, used alot more (mint Sparkle) wax to highlight and flat back purple gems.

I have prepared videotutorial for the tag for you today. Let's go !.
I started by painting the base and components with black gesso.
I painted chipboards with acrylic paint art alchemy Royal Red.
I printed a stamp on the base of the tag and applied gold embossing powder and sealed
Then I applied to all components LSG Poisettia Red Gold.
I layered all the components on the tag and filled them with paper flowers.
I applied red wax paste to the elevated places and in some places I put gold glitter. I completed the whole assemblage with black string and twisted wires
Here you can watch the video:

Here i am with some inspiration to make a beautiful mixed media canvas. I called it Let Go.
I have used some random stuff i had and i am sure you can find some nice products and goodies in the random arts webshop to make a similar canvas!!
This is what i made:
Honestly the pictures dont show the colours too well. But, it is what it is.. If you are curious how i made it, you can read how, from here ;)
I started to write some stuff doen that was on my mind... i had to vent a bit ;) hence the name 'Let Go'. After this i glued down some tissuepaper with gel medium, Making some texture on the canvas. When it was dry i used a stencil with a script and some modeling paste... Due to the very hot weather here it was almost all dried up :(
After that, i covered it in black gesso and tied some rope around it. Then i glued some bottle caps down because i wanted some dimension.
i used some packaging and peeled of the top layer so it shows the … what's the word... the waves? I put some modeling paste in areas and glued some cheesecloth down. Then it was time to start decorating. I didnt think about it too much and just went with it. grabbed lots of stuff that i had in my stash like buttons, bottle caps. some metal embellishments, wooden shapes etc.
After this, of course more BLACK GESSO. I love that stuff!!
And when that was dry, its time to add colour. I used a green tone as the basecolour. I didnt worry about getting the green paint in every nook and cranny. I like the effect it gives with the black gesso. Like a shade or something.
After the green i went in with a really soft brown tone, almost a crème colour. I also used some rust pastes and of course waxes. Whats a mixed media canvas without the finnabair waxes! And this is the result:
Thats it guys, i hope you like it. If you have any questions, just let me know. If you are looking for some nice products to make a canvas like this, check out the webshop on www.randomarts.au
embellishments, metal and wooden shapes, paint, waxes and more you will find there!!

Hey there lovely people!
Today I'm sharing my new DT layout for this month's Random Arts Moodboard, which is full of beautiful purple and green tones.
For this layout I used two different card stocks. I fussy cut around the doily on the top card stock and placed the plain purple card stock underneath it.
For the background I used a stencil with embossing texture paste and I placed some purple framed paper behind my photos for some matting. I also lightly distressed the edges.
Once I adhered my photo's, I arranged my cut outs and flowers around them. I used Lindy's magical shaker to colour the flower resins and I heat embossed the flower chipboards.
Once everything was in place, I finished off the layout by adding some sparkly green beads and glitter around randomly.
