''ART'' - Mixed Media Canvas for Lindy's Stamp Gang DT with a VIDEO TUTORIAL


Hello mixed media’s fans! Today I'm up on the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog and I want to show you how I made a canvas using Embossing Powder and Starburst Sprays from Lindy’s.


To get started, I covered my canvas with white gesso.
When dried, I applied white crackle paste here and there and some light paste for extra texture.


I heat embossed the 2Crafty chipboard with Bratwurst Brown embossing powder and placed it on the canvas before the pastes dried.



I glued the small canvas upside down in the center of the bigger one and applied some more crackle paste in the edges. Then, I added some copper glass glitter and bronze micro beads and let it air dry overnight.


I used the sprays Bayou Boogie Gold, Cowabunga Copper, and Clam Bake Beige to add color to the canvas.


And then, I just had to add the metal embellishments and some more bronze micro beads to finish it.



Here are some close-ups so you can see the details.






I have also made a video tutorial with the procedure.

''Always'' - GD Layout for Cuts2luv May's Moodboard



Hello my dear friends!

Today, is my turn to share with you my layout for Cuts2luv May's challenge. I made a spring layout in pink and green tones totally inspired by the beautiful board.


This is the moodboard...  



I used all the elements of the board... the sketch, the color palette, the title, a woman's photo, the watercolor background and the sequins.
 

Here are some close ups of my layout...


For my background I used the ”Pucker Up” paper from the ”Cotton Candy Pink” 7dots Studio collection.


I primed my background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page by using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ''Cotton Candy Pink'' and ''Merci Beaucoup Mint''. I also colored the two pink flowers with the ''Cotton Candy Pink'' spray to make them match with the moodboard colors.


I heat embossed the chipboard leaves with the ''Spring Leaf Chartreuse'' Lindy’s embossing powder. The title and the clock frame chippies were also embossed with the ''Gilded Burgundy Brass'' powder. All the chipboards I used are 2Crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.


To finish, I added some art stones with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.


  
I used a flair from the ''Ladybug'' kit

''Dream'' - DT Layout for Crafty Life May Challenge



Hello everyone!!!

Today, we have a new challenge over at Crafty Life challenge blog, and I want to share with you my layout for our challenge. The theme is...

''Flowers"


Here are some detailed photos of my layout...



I used the paper ''Dreaming'' from the ''Aura Rosa'' 13arts collection. I haven't used those beautiful papers from a while and I though they where just perfect for our flowery challenge theme.



To start, I applied some clear gesso and I created texture with the 13arts stencil ''Your Art'' and modeling paste. Then, I made splatters on the background with the ''Pastel Mint'' and the ''Chalk Yellow Amber'' 13arts mists.


  I heat embossed the flourish chipboards and the title with the ''Spring Leaf Chartreuse'' Lindy's embossing powder. The flourish chipboards I used are 2Crafty, the title is 13arts and the flair is Cuts2luv. All the flowers are Prima Marketing.


To finish, I added some plum glass beads and made some splatters with white acrylic artist ink.


 
Thank you all so much for stopping by!

''Treasure the Moment'' - DT Layout for Maja Design May Inspiration


Hello my dear friends! Happy Sunday to all!

Today, I'm up on the Maja Design blog sharing my latest layout made with papers from two of my favourite collections, the ”Sofiero” and the ''Monochromes - shades of Sofiero''.

A soft romantic layout in blue and gold tones that was inspired by the beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.


 I used for my background the ”The magnificent Flowerstreet” paper from the ”Sofiero” collection and I made a die cut doily with the ''White/Sand'' paper from the ''Monochromes - shades of Sofiero''. 


I primed my background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I colored my page using Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Hydrangea Blue”.


I heat embossed the ”Ada's Flourishes” 2Crafty chipboard with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powder. The title was also embossed with the ”Madonna Rabe Blue” powder. The title chipboards I used are 13arts and all the flowers and embellishments are Prima Marketing.


To finish, I added some copper micro beads with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.


Papers used:

 


That’s all for today, my friends!

Thank you for stopping by!

''Pretty me...'' - DT Layout for Crafty Life


Hello everyone!!!
 
Today, I'm up on the Crafty Life blog, sharing with you my layout made for the April challenge
 
This month we have a beautiful spring moodboard. 



And, here are some detailed photos of my layout...
 

 
I used paper from the ''Rose Quartz'' Prima Marketing collection and some journaling cards to mat my photo.
 
 
To start, I applied some white gesso and I created texture with a stencil and modeling paste. Then, I made splatters on the background with the ''Cotton Candy Pink'', the ''Open Arms Amethyst'' and the ''Sweet Violet Purple Teal'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.
 

  I heat embossed the chipboard with the ''Hibiscus Rose Orange'' Lindy's powder. The chipboard I used is 2Crafty and the flair is Cuts2luv.


Then it was the time to glue everything down the embellishments from the ephemera pack and the flowers accomplished my cluster. Both are Prima Marketing.

 
 To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and some licorice glass beads with gel medium.
