Mini canvas wall clock with volume decoupage...

Hello crafty friends!
Excited to start my second inning with Itsy bitsy....and for this post I wanted to make something very special which I was planning to do from long time..and new release of decoupage papers.. really gave me a kick start for this project...😁so let's start with project and it's detailed step by step instructions..

 For this project I have used 12 pieces of 3"*3" mini canvas and base is  3/4" thick plywood in 14"x14".( I explained my project idea to my husband he helped me in this base cutout n fixing the clock parts n all πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•)

 Step-1: first I did sanding with sand paper.. ( though board was quite smooth)...then roughly arranged all mini canvases as per my imagination and checked ..that how the arrangement is looking 😊

 Selected two decoupage design to use for this project..and cut it into 3"*3"size  and middle part is 6.5"x 6.5"
 Then I decoupaged each mini canvas using little birdie decoupage glue and these 3"*3" cutout designs... I really love these small cute decoupage canvases... getting more n more ideasπŸ˜„
 Next I have applied little birdie white chalk paint in the middle area and then masking the white boarder area gave black chalk paint in rest outside area. I used two coats of both.
 Next I decoupaged in the middle part where I am going to fix the dial...(it's not stuck at this stage)
 Then gave black chalk paint edges to all mini canvases...at this step I wasn't sure to use black ..as I was liking the plain decoupage canvas look.. without any boarder...but then it's doneπŸ˜”πŸ˜¬
 After placing and arranging all mini canvases I did stenciling with archival inks...this really changed the look of each design...
 I wanted to use some rough texture to break the monotony ..so I have later used Little birdie sand texture paste with fingers so I can control..as the area is very small...then wasn't sure of that white texture look so to cover it ( not completely) then I have used gold guilding work only on some raised areas.and Iam very happy with the result...then finally I have distress with brown n black archival inks on gold guilding parts and all edges..fixed the MDF clock dial-in it's place using gel medium.
 At this stage I thought that my project is complete..but then I got the idea from my leftover paper pieces to use that cute little butterflies somewhere on my design..so I did volume decoupage..
 For this I applied required number of butterfly design pieces on  sospeso sheet using sospeso glue..once it got dried.. I did fussy cutting..and gave volume to my design using tea light candle and wooden embossing tool.
Then finally using little birdie heavy gel medium I have fixed butterflies in few places.. you can see the result in below pictures..

After completing the whole project.. I thought to use my favourite little birdie Tinted metallic gold paint on outside boarder..and the end result you can see hereπŸ˜„πŸ’•. 
Hope you have liked my project and for any queries you can ask me in comment box or message me personally...will try to reply.. thank you for stopping by... see you soon with my next post till then take care and happy crafting.
Love n hugs

Decoupage with faux wood effect and lace work.

Hello crafty Friends!
Today I am here with my decoupage home Decor piece with faux wood effect and lace work.

Now let me explain you all step by step..

I have taken 12" round MDF base. On that with pencil n scale marked vertical lines as you can see in above first picture..then with sharp tool I scored that lines to get deep score lines. After that I applied white gesso. once gesso got dried, I applied three Colors of chalk paints in vertical lines n with that I have used brown and black chalk paints on my deep score line to give faux wood effect. Then using thick hard bristle brush and brown and black mixed chalk paint gave that faux wood effect...I am really very happy with the result as in real it looks very pretty. Hope I am able to capture that in below picture.
 #2- now using Tinted metallic paint silver Oak and stencil I did stenciling all around..oh yes before that I place my images in the centre and marked that area with light pencil mark.

 #3- when my stencil work dried properly then I decoupaged my image in that marked area using decoupage glue. Gave two coats of varnish.
 #4 - by the time my varnish was getting dried I made a plastic cone and in that I put little birdie two in one texture paste ( little diluted). You can use pearl drop also.
 #5 - now using that texture paste come I did outline to my stencil design..it will give lace effect..we can add more free hand designs also but here I did not want to cover my faux wood effect..so I did only on stencil areas only.
 #6 -after that I have used Little birdie black pearl drop  as small dots on inner n outer sides.
 Here you can see...

#7 - finally using little birdie MDF chipboard and flowers I decorated...I used minimal decoration to keep main focus on faux wood and lace effect..
Thank you for stopping by.. .you must be knowing that this month at itsybitsy blog we have 'Anything with little birdie pearl drops' challenge and we all DT'S trying to inspire you all...so hope to see more entries.😁
Thank you
Love n hugs
