Hi Crafty peeps, Am Sathya Kala from Paperie Expressions. Am an MSc., MPhil., Toxicologist who has a pulsating desire to pursue my Doctoral research Program.

Hello surprise, its Amna here :)

Im here with a brief product review to share with you all.
Im sure all of you must have atleast seen (if not tried) the Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Crayons that came out this year at CHA. Who doesnt love the distress line, rather all of Tim Holtz’s goodies? After watching Tim’s demo videos from CHA, I really wanted to get hold of them and give them a try since they werent ‘fluid’ like the other mediums and yet were still reactive with water. I hadnt been able to get hold of them till I got one in the new kit and I couldnt wait to get down with it, so here it is…

Hello!
Upon completion of a year of fun filled, creative, and colorful challenges, we are notching up the game by introducing Mood Boards!

Mood boards basically, are composed of a collection of elements [images, color swatches, text etc] which define the style of a project. By providing visual clarity on what is desired, a mood board is the fastest, most efficient way to communicate the desired “look and feel” of a project.

So April onwards, Artful Crafting challenge theme’s will be accompanied by a mood board. We would like you to take inspiration from the mood board, and design something in line with the theme.

Our theme for Challenge 12, is in honor of the most loved person in our lives; our precious, Mom.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~Washington Irving

Below is the mood board for the challenge. We look forward to entries that express the love, and importance of Mothers, in a style communicated by the mood board. Continue reading
