A Canvas & Video Tutorial!


Happy Tuesday! Today I come with a canvas and a Video Tutorial that I made using 2Crafty Chipboards and the new Prima Bloom Girl- Emily. I've been coloring these dolls lately, I painted Emily with Copics.
I started creating a design with the "1.5 inch Hexagon" chipboard that I covered with a coat of Heavy gesso- Art Basics by Prima, then I painted with Color Bloom- Cobalt color.
I applied embossing powder in silver and pewter colors to all the chippies.

"Chain lengths", Light Bulbs and "Live it up" chippies

I love the look of Emily with the gears she's awesome so I added the "Giant Gears" chippies around her.

Supplies I used:

Hi everyone! 7Dots Studios has a new challenge this month and the theme is "Hearts" ...how lovely word to inspire me, I thought in many things but I decided to make my page about my daughter because she is a sweetheart, I have a very kind  and sweet girl.   I worked with the Thoughts Keepers collection by 7 Dots.



Some closer details...
I worked with two different stencils : Damask stencil from Soulmates collection and other from Destination Unknown collection by 7Dots Studios.  Art basics-Molding paste by Prima Marketing.

I made the design using the die cuts element from the same collection.

All these hearts are from the die cuts. Love Prima flowers!

17th...7Dots Studios

Hello ! My daughter turned 17 years old two weeks ago, it's incredible how time flies. I made this page using two of the new 7Dots Studios collection: Thoughts Keeper and Soulmates. These collections have beautiful stamps and stencils that I worked with them to make my background work.  I also used the 6 x 6 paper pad, sometimes we only need a piece of a specific paper and we don't want to cut a 12 x 12 paper only for a small piece and I think that the mini paper pads are perfect to complement our projects, too.

I created textures with the Damask stencil from the Soulmates collection and art basics-Molding paste by Prima Marketing.  I stamped to add contrast with the beautiful Thoughts Keepers' stamp .

I added the 17th to a tag from the Soulmates collection  to create my title.

I added some die cuts to accent my page and Glass beads-Finnabair art ingredients, also pretty Prima flowers.

You can see these beautiful 7Dots collections...HERE

This is You...

Happy San Valentine's Day!  Here's a DT project that I made for 2Crafty Chipboard using their wonderful chippies. I worked with the beautiful Epiphany collection by Prima Marketing. I started to create this page making a design with the negative from the Scallop Circle Frame Borders that I painted with acrylic yellow paint.  I have used 2 different sizes, one behind the photo and another behind the title.

The Tree with Sparrow chippie goes perfect with this paper design so I painted it with acrylic paints and the added some stamping on the leaves. I painted the background with Color Blooms- Sunshine  then I added textures with a stencil and art basics- molding paste.


I coated my tittle "This is You" with gesso and acrylic paint then I stamped it and applied white paint in some areas to create light and contrast.

Supplies list:
2Crafty Chipboards

Prima Marketing:
Epiphany collection,art basics: gesso, molding paste,Color Blooms- sunshine
Stencil- checkers, Lace, flowers

Until Next time!

Inseparable

Hello everyone!! Today I share with you this page"Inseparable" that I made using 2 Crafty Chipboards and the "Forever Green Collection" by Prima. I started by giving a coat of gesso(Heavy Gesso-art basics) to all my chippies.  Next, I applied Soft Matte Gel(art basics) to the circles on the "Bubbly Reed Panel" and then added micro beads in silver and a splash of color.  I cut the "Bubly Reed Panel" in pieces to mat my photo& added it under my flower cluster.

To enhance the "Inseparable title" I painted with chalkboard paint by Prima, then I applied lights and shadows with acrylic paint.

I love the textures that the micro beads add to the chippies. The "Mini Camera" chippie was perfect to add to my flower cluster. These beautiful flowers are from Prima.

My Creative Scrapbook January Creations and a VIDEO Tutorial!!!

Hello lovely friends! I wish to you all of you a happy, healthy and creative year! I started the year no the way I liked it, I've been sick in the hospital but I'm home now.  One of my resolutions for this year is to work one month ahead with my DT projects and I began to do it, I was so motivated before everything complicated it. But I'll do again as soon as I feel fine.  There are some of the projects I was doing before..... :(
I'm sharing with you today my projects with the beautiful Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook featuring Kaisercraft- Tropical Punch collection, Prima Marketing and more...

"DREAM"
My first page is about my lovely niece Camila, I just love this photo ...she looks adorable, she loves the Frozen movie like all the girls these days.
I made a step by step video of this page that you will love seeing, it is at the end of this post and you will see how I made the design and the mix media work.

The kit comes with two Shabby Chic Treasures frames by Inglvild Bolme and three packages of beautiful flowers by Prima.

I made this design using the Calico-stencil from the kit.

My title is one of the watercolor words by Dear Lizzy-American Craft.

You can see the video tutorial of this page at the end of this post....
 "Life is Beautiful"
My second page is about my dear daughter and I, it's a selfie that I took at the end of last year. I was so pale and didn't feel well.
I love pineapples so I cut out some from one of the papers to add it in my flower cluster and behind my photo.   

My title, heart and words are from the sticker sheet. I used the large resin frame and applied a coat of Color Bloom- Gilded color.

I made my background using art basic- gesso-molding paste,stamps,  Color Blooms- Gilded-Sorbet colors by Prima. 

Lot of flowers in this kit....you will love it!


"SMILE"
My last page  is with other "selfie" that hubby took with the kids. I made this page using the sticker page and I cut out some flower to create this design.

I mat the photo with the doily paper from the kit.

Title- watercolor words by Dear Lizzy-AC.
