Bottled Memories---Baby Album

Hi All,

This is Rimjhim from The Element Craft Studio. Today I am here with my another project : Baby Album

Here is a glimpse of my Project.

Material used:


Step 1: It's amazing to work on this newly launched baby album. Firstly, I primed the surface with a coat of gesso.

Step 2: Then I applied blue chalk paint to cover my base. After applying the chalk paint, I decoupage "My Naughty Prince" paper pack. The paper pack is just amazing. I am sure you will fall in love with it as I did.

Step 3: After that I started arranging the embellishments, wooden frames, chipboards, flowers according to my plan. 

Step 4: I also used shimmer glitter and stones for decoration.

Tadaaaaa... my baby album is ready.. This album is dedicated to my nephew who just came into our life two months back..

I hope you enjoyed my post. Looking forward for your comments and feedback.

Sunny Roses on Jar

Hello crafty folks,

I am back again at TECS blog with my other inspirational project, recently TECS launched new Jute flowers. They are just amazing with so bright and fresh colours.

I received a beautiful Acrylic front Jar as my DT kit. I love to alter jars.

The materials used from TECS :
  1. Acrylic front Jar
  1. Rustic gold Decoupage paper 
  1. Juthe flower
  1. Wooden cutouts
  1. Chalk paint
Let's start the procedure to alter a Jar.

First, I gave a coat of chalk paint ( Rustic Russet ) to the entire jar. After that, covered 3 sides of jar and lid of the jar with Decoupage papers ( Rustic Gold ). Cut the papers according to the size of the Jar and glued it with Mod Podge. Added texture with modeling paste and color .

Second Step is to gather all embellishments to decor the Jar. I used TECS

different wooden cutouts. Arrange them roughly first and after that glued them with a hot glue gun. Now I added 3D stickers for more interest. And the step is to add different types of stones to create more depth. It's almost ready now, at the last I stuck Acrylic sheet with hot glue gun in front of the Jar.

It's ready ... Hope you guys love it !!!
Have a good day ...
Thank you,Vidhi Jadeja

Handyman for Letters

Hi all dear crafty lovers, today i am going to share the tutorial of vintage letter rack. 

Another wonderful DIY base from TECS… TECS bases are beautiful  and at the same time very useful too. Stylish and sturdy wall mounted mail organizer with two pockets , provides great convenience and functionality to keep your mail, letters, small documents and catalogs etc in one place with easy accessibility. Let's start with the list of material we need to create this project-

Mod Podge
crackle medium

To start the project, first i applied the barley green chalk paint on the back piece of the organizer. After drying the base color i applied crackle medium on that and then painted soft sun chalk paint as the top coat. I just wanted to give the feel of crackle effect , so did not use very contrasting colors.

For the front rack pieces , I applied mod podge on the surface and covered the surface with TECS bordure decoupage paper.  I gave distress effect with archival brown ink on the sides .

After drying the mod podge, I applied varnish on the front rack peices. Then I have used golden color outline tube to highlight some lines of the paper designs and decorated it with wooden cutout and metal vintage knob. I also colored the ball chain in brown color and stick that to give the border design to the flap pieces.

To give the back piece little darker effect, I did dabbing with brown color. Then I  assembled all the pieces together.

To give the final touches to my project, i applied brown color distress effect on the sides of the organizer and decorate it with resin embellishments. 

For resin embellishments, first I applied the gesso on the pieces and then color with brown chalk paint and gave some highlight with golden color.  I hope, you all will like the project. 

Please feel free to message me if you have any questions. all suggestions and reviews are welcome. Thank you for reading my blog. HAPPY CRAFTING to all crafty lovers.

Love Packed in Box

Hello guys,

I am Back on TECS, this time with a gift idea for Mother's Day. Mothers are everything to us and I am sure, none of us would like to leave a chance to make them feel special . Let's get going !

To begin with I have a beautiful carved box from TECS, all their products are super strong and smooth.

There is no need of sanding required. Using the stencil, I created some texture on the base.

Now,  once the texture paste is dry,  varnish on the texture,  so that it doesn't spread while painting above.  Now I painted the whole box with this beautiful wine red chalk paint from Anra Crafts.

Using a decoupage paper,  I pasted the inner base with these cute deer's..  Looks like a mom and daughter to me ☺ isn't this print beautiful? 

Now the top flap of the box I applied crackle medium and painted with a cream for the red cracks to show.

I took one more decoupage paper with beautiful flowers and randomly cut them to do volume decoupage.

Pasted the fussy cut flowers on to the sospeso sheet and fussy cut and embossed them to make a beautiful floral arrangement for the top of the box.

Added some pollen and pink glitter to add some interest.

Finished the arrangement by adding a sentiment "Memories" In the center.

So,  this is how the box looked once done. 

Now,  to make it look more vintage,  I added these metal legs from the Anra Crafts metal embellishment collection.

I totally love the outcome,  and hope my mom would love this too 🙂

I hope you like this project.  Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.  Thank you for stopping by! 
Until next time..  ❤
