Mixed Media Canvas & Video Tutorial - Stamperia

Hello scrapper friends! I have a canvas project and the video tutorial to share with you today in collaboration with Stamperia.  I received a box with their fantastic products and these adorable angels catch my eyes that It is one of their new molds to use with the soft clay. 


I started making the figures with their soft clay (that it's very easy to work with ) and two different molds. You should let it dry for 24 hours but I only waited four hours and removed them from the molds to adhere over the canvas with gel medium and let it dry overnight. But before, I gave textures with a stencil and the Textures sand paste then I adhered the pieces and applied crackled paste .


Let's take a look a all the details....






Supplies:
Soft Clay, Wooden Shapes, flowers, stencil, Crackled Paste, Textured Sand Paste, Acrylic Paints

Enjoy the Video Tutorial...


Thanks for stopping by...until next time!
Hugs!

A Large Christmas Tag and a card for the new challenge at Creative Embellishments

Hi!!! I share with you today two projects, the first one is a Christmas Big Tag and the second is a card that I made for the December challenge at Creative Embellishment blog.  Let's start with the tag...
I started applying a coat of white gesso to one of the Large Tags. I gave the brick textures on the background with modeling paste and the Crackled Brick Stencil.  I created a design with  the Feeling The Love Frame and the Acorn Clusters , then I adhered them to the tag with gel medium and gave other coat of white gesso.

I created layer of textures adhering art stones, pearls, cheesecloth, buttons, flowers, etc… I applied color with mists and distress oxides inks. 


I gave gold color touches with the Metallic watercolors. The final touch was white paint splatters.


Other supplies I used:
Mist:
Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink- Persimmon, Cotton Candy
Prima Marketing:
Color Blooms- Gold Foil
Art Basics- Heavy Gesso, Gel medium, Modeling Paste
Art stones, Pearls
Ranger:
Distress Oxides Ink- Vintage Photo



Believe Card

It 's my project inspired in the beautiful challenge's image.
I have been inspired by the blue sky full of stars in the challenge photo to create this card. I took a piece of white cardstock and painted  with distress oxides in blue colors.   I put the Distressed Circle Stencil over it and sprayed water, with a paper towel I absorbed the excess of water, then I removed carefully the stencil and I get the circular design. I painted with gold metallic paint the Believe from the Christmas Sentiments and the star from the Buttons.

The challenge is to be inspired by one element from the picture below and the twist is to use a border on our project.




I hope you find some inspiration today.
Thanks for stopping by...until next time!

Altered Box- Creative Embellishments

Hello!! I have been working on altered projects lately and I share one with you today.  I made this altered box using the fantastic Creative Embellishments products.

I took a round wooden box that I bought at my local craft store and covered it with The Peony Avenue paper by Studio 75.  I  cut and adhered the Bubble Panel to the lid of the box and the Flourish.

Once the Bubble Panel was adhered to the top of the box, I glued the flowers and pearls then  I gave a coat of white gesso to the chipboard and flowers.



I painted the chipboard with Color Blooms, metallic acrylic paint  in coral, pink, and gold colors.  I embossed one of the Butterflies in gold and pink embossing powders.  Then I added more textures with art stones , pearls and glass beads.


I stamped the bottom of the box with the Distressed Crackle Stamp and a permanent ink.

Fall Canvas- Creative Embellishments

Hi! I made a fall canvas to share with you today using the pretty chipboard and products by Creative Embellishments. I love the beautiful colors that nature brings us during this season and I mixed orange, brown and cranberry colors in the canvas, let’s take a look…

First, I gave textures to the canvas with the Crackled Brick Stencil and modeling paste.   I created a design using  the Autumn Leaves that I adhered with gel medium. I added pieces of lace between the chipboard.


I gave more textures adhering art stones and glass beads with gel medium. Once I had all the pieces  glued down, I gave a coat of white gesso over all the canvas.


I painted the chippies and canvas with mist in orange, cranberry and brown colors.


I painted the title “Autumn Word set” with a brown mist then I applied a brown marker to the borders.

Holiday Mixed Media techniques featuring Carousel Christmas

Hello!!  I share with you today a holiday mixed media layout with the gorgeous Carousel Christmas collection and products by BoBunny and Pentart. 

 I started giving textures to my base paper (Joy) with the Winter Fun Stickable Stencil and the Sugar Glitter Paste. It created bright snowflakes on the background, then I added white paint splatters. The Joy paper has a few spots of yellow paint, so I created more yellow spots on the background with a mix of Pentart Acrylic Gold paint and Gesso Primer Paste.


I used the Happy Holidays as my title and to enhance it,  I cut the pink banner from the Floral paper and adhered it behind the quote with foam tape. I draped the Joy paper and place under the believe paper.


To make the project more interesting I tied a white cord to the jingle bells. I made some dots with the Pearlecents to create more textures on the background.


I applied with a paintbrush the Gold Confetti Paste on the background and added pieces of cheesecloth between the embellishments.


I cut out different images from the Wonder paper that I gave distress ink and added 3D foam tape to create dimension with them.  I placed the photo and then I added the different images to create the design on my layout.



Finally I added some buttons from the Ephemera package and some pearls.

I hope you find some inspiration,  Thanks for stopping by...until next time!!

Celebrating Card with 3D Stars and Glitter

Hello everyone! I hope you are good! Thank you so much for all your best wishes and comments here, YouTube and social media. I'm feeling better but I have not returned to normal yet. The pneumonia left me weak and I'm tired almost all the time but I force myself to do things so I want to share with you this card that I made with the fabulous 3L Scrapbook Adhesives products.  I used the Foam Stars to bring dimension and textures to the background of my card.

Creating the background of my Celebration Card

Start with a 5 1/2 x 5″ white cardstock as the card panel, paint with distress oxide ink . Then adhere the 3D Foam Stars on the background.


Next, let’s create a design on the card panel. I used different types and sizes of the 3D Foam Stars. Make sure to keep the top liner on for now.


Now for the fun part: Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside! Carefully peel off the top liner from the 3D Foam Stars and sprinkle white glitter over all the stars. Press glitter lightly into foam stars and then tap off excess.


I stamped and embossed the sentiment in black on the card panel.  The pretty little girl is from La-La Land Crafts, I first stamped with white cardstock. Then colored the image with a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. After , cut out the image with my scissors, I placed 3D Foam Squares White Mix on the back and adhered it to my card front.


From this angle of the image, you can see all the dimension the 3D Foam adhesives add to the card. The stars look fantastic! Next, adhere the card panel to the black card base with Dual Tip Glue Pen.

It’s easy and fun to create this fantastic background, especially with the 3D Foam Stars! I love how it turned out and hope you find some inspiration from this card.

Other products I used:
Stamp- La-La Land Crafts- Paper Doll Marci Birthday
Dye Ink- Memento- Tuxedo Black
Copics- Prismacolor
Distress Oxides ink- Worn Lipstick
Blue Fern Studio- ebony emboss powder, glitter
Neenah- Solar white 80lb cardstock

Thanks for stopping by ..until next time!!!
