Hello everyone,my name is Kavitha and I am from Chennai, India.
I am a computer science graduate, but took crafting as a profession right after my college. I did some short term courses n diploma in fine arts .
I used to do painting n murals,but after entered the blogging world three years back I got introduced to paper crafts and I am really hooked up since then.
My recent obsession in mixed media. I have stopped painting after I ventured into paper crafts n mixed media gave me opportunity to use it again.
I love the freedom it gives to my creativity n I just love using different mediums n creating different textures,the results are always magical n unexpected:).
For my project today, I created the background using several layers of Distress paints, stains, lots of stenciling n stamping etc. I used some vintage girl images as focal point and used lots of my favorite Prima and metal embellishments.This is the first time I tried vintage style in mixed media, I hope you liked my project, I thank Ingrid for this wonderful opportunity and I thoroughly enjoyed making this project.
Thanks and regards,
Wow! How fantastic is this! So many gorgeous elements and the colour combination is in my opinion absolutely wonderful! It works so well!
