Perhaps its time to look at life from a different angle !!

Art Journal

Hello Friends ,





I am happy I am creating and using up all that I am hoarding along with all that I am adding in new to my stash !








Todays creation is all a note to self to learn and grow









An art journal, is a book kept by an artist as a visual, and sometimes verbal, record of her thoughts and ideas. Art journals generally combine visual journaling and writing, to create finished pages. Every imaginable style, media and technique is used by art journalists. "Mixed media" tends to refer to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media—for example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage could properly be called a "mixed media" work

I wanted to get going on my making 'to do' list and also learn some new skills, so I thought I would try to make at least one small project a week (sometimes large projects too!) and as I started to plan n I realised it would be a fantastic way to do something and challenge myself !







  • I started the process with Gesso 
  • Once the page was dry and ready to use I have used 3 shades of Blue in acrylics.
  • I have spread the colours using a sponge 
  • I have stencilled with stencil and used shades of raw sienna in acrylics.
  • I have used Bo Bunny stamp It Is Written set here 
  • I have added the die cut flowers and bird 
  • I have tried brush lettering on the quote using sharpie brush pen in black

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello Friends 


Today's post is actually about an award I received from a fellow blogger, its called the Blogger Recognition Award. The Blogger Recognition Award is an online award given to bloggers by other bloggers. It was created to let the readers learn a little bit more about the bloggers who they enjoy following 


Thanks to Femina. from Salt n Pepper for nominating me. She is passionate about food and cooking. And her love for good food is reflected in each of her recipe.

About My Blog


I am a MBA finance graduate turned Crafter :) HappyMomentzz came together as a opportunity to fulfil my creative instinct for someone who enjoy's making handmade things ! 


I have been crafting since I was a little girl. Sitting by my Grandmother, watching her sew and craft, it became almost natural for me to follow in her footsteps. Fascinated by the beauty of Indian sarees, I went on to design & got trained to do handwork on Sari’s & Dresses. Over the years I got into painting and watercolors. I tried my hand at different mediums, each one equally interesting and challenging as the other. I have always been surrounded by many creative housewives all my life, they inspired me n build my dream stronger for being a care oriented women. 



I started scrap-booking to organise our photos, but it turned into a passion when I was asked to create some scrapbooks for friends and there it was, the niche I was looking for. I then started card-making, I have been addicted to Layouts with some mixed media techniques, with a sense to details and layering. Now my passion are albums, mini and with bookbinding. I love that you can incorporate so many techniques and tips in one project. Also I love creating on the canvas, it allows me to think that I am a true artist!!



Currently I love stamping and art journaling and '52 Weeks, 52 Crafts' is a challenge I set out for myself  I wanted to get going on my making 'to do' list and also learn some new skills, so I thought I would try to make at least one small project a week (sometimes large projects too!) and as I started to plan n I realised it would be a fantastic way to do something and challenge myself !


I am so proud of my little brand and incredibly grateful to all the wonderful customers and enthusiastic supporters who have Loved my products over the past SIX fabulous years. I will never be able to thank you all enough. I have also been extremely fortunate to have had a lot of help along the way, in the form of friends and family who are truly remarkable. , I would like to thank all my clients and all of you who follow my journey. Total strangers I met (or didn’t even meet) who believed in me and we became friends over the period , I am thankful to friends who have supported me, offered their advice and kept me motivated throughout!!

Tea-rrific Adventure

Hello Friends , 



'52 Weeks, 52 Crafts' is a challenge I set out for myself and I am glad I making through it smoothly :)
and I am exploring more of me my tastes and my creations ! I seem to have always fascinated with art Journaling but have never took time to seriously do it . 
Here are a few trials earlier in Mixed media and Art Journals .


Today's creation is all about me and my typical day starts out with a cup of Tea !! 
It is special , as it is made by my husband each morning for last 10 years.

Growing up, I never really had the habit of drinking anything , after my wedding I learnt to make tea from my Husband. Each day he makes the first tea in the morning and then rest of the day whenever needed I make Tea but it never turns out as good as my master you see.

This quote on the creation talks to me about all the dreams , wishes and future plans we have been making sipping our cup of tea Together :) 
Our Imaginary Voyage .

Our Love for tea has grown this year as we travelled to UK and are getting used to Afternoon Tea culture and meeting new Tea lovers !!


How this came together 
I am creating on store 67  brown sketchbook

  • I started the process with Gesso 
  • Once the page was dry and ready to use I have used 3 shades of yellow here namely cadmium yellow, yellow oxide and yellow hue in acrylics.
  • I have spread the colours using a sponge 
  • I have stencilled with Itsy Bitsy leaf stencil and used shades of raw sienna and burnt umber in acrylics.
  • I have used tea cups from Janes doodles Tea-rriffic stamp set 
  • further I have added colours and doodles on them to create interest  on the cups and the kettle 
  • I have added heart shapes and coloured them with red sharpies 
  • I have tried brush lettering on the quote using sharpie brush pen in black 
  • On one corner I have added Remember from Timholtz stickers and sentiment from Janes doodles Tea-rriffic stamp set to finish the creation .
