Fantasy: Design Team Call

Hi Creative Minds, 

This post for is for the Design Team Call held at Fantasy Knives(Dies). I was introduced to these dies by a dear friend Torsa and after that, I totally became a fan of their products. I totally love the intricacy and delicacy of the dies which this company produces. It would be a great honor if I become part of this amazing innovative company.
Few details about me as requested on the blog.

My name is Mallika Kejriwal Bagaria and I am originally from India. I am currently living in Chicago, USA with my wonderful family. I am a software developer by profession and a crafter by passion. I have loved colors, threads, ribbons, papers and such since the age of 5 - I remember making pretty clothes for my dolls as a little girl. I started my journey as a paper crafter and mixed media artist in 2010 when I stumbled across some beautiful crafty blogs while I was looking for some ideas to make a card for a friend's birthday. Ever since then there has been no looking back. I have evolved as an artist. My style is basically very versatile, it runs from cute baby albums to explosion boxes, to shabby chic fabric crafts, to mixed media canvases, DIY altered projects, cards, layouts and many many more. Art is the reason why I have survived in this monotonous life. Because I love teaching art, I have an active YouTube channel (Aola DIY) which now currently boasts 32000 Global Subscribers (Majority India and the USA) and over 3 Million Views. Working for a tech company makes me very tech savvy/computer friendly. I can click very good project pictures, edit professional quality videos/pictures which is evident from my project pictures on all my social media.

Some of my favorite works are listed below. Most of them have a tutorial ( class ) on my youtube. I teach how I made these step by step. Do check my channel out! 

Hope you all will enjoy this post! 
Fingers crossed :)

A journey for the soul

Hi All,

Today I bring you another beautiful project. For the first time, I have worked with a black canvas. I was very hesitant but final result, I am super pleased with it. After a long period of time, I have used my picture. I am usually scared to use my pictures, but super happy with the whole look.
I have used beautiful products from Prima Marketing, Finnabair, Lindy's Stamp Gang, Scrapiniec.
I am entering this project into various challenges all around the globe. I love creating for challenges, it is so so much fun.

Have a great day

I am entering this into the June challenge at More Than Words Challenge. 
I have used hexagon old maps and my quote uses the work Journey. 
Sometimes when I am caught with so many negative thoughts, I wonder if I could take a journey to my soul and make amends.

Frame your sweet memories

Hi Everyone,

I am here again today with a sweet layout made using lovely papers from Mintay Papers. All of their collections are super pretty and intricate. Lovely day is my absolute favorite.
I had to of course team it up with beautiful bright flowers from Prima Marketing Inc.
All the mixed media supplies used are from Finnabair Studio and shakers, embossing powder is by Lindy's Gang.

I am entering this into the May challenge at More than words blog. 

Frame your sweet memories is the inspiration behind this canvas.  In life, we often forget good memories. They are meant to be remembered.  With pictures, we have the ability to store emotions and feelings within a frame.  I have some many pictures framed inside all my layouts all over my house. When I look at them they bring back so many good memories, the memory of where that picture was taken, how old we were and also the memory of how I scrapped that page.
