Birdhouse

Hi there! I hope you are good and ready for the weekend!  I have an altered project to share with you today.  I bought this wood birdhouse  at Michael's and altered with the Creative Embellishments products.


I started covering with pattern paper all the sides of the birdhouse.  I gave textures with the Crackled Brick Stencil and Modeling Paste only on  the sides and the front panels.




I covered the roof with the Distressed Chicken Wire Border that I adhered with Tacky glue.   I adhered art stones with gel medium. Once it’s dry,  I painted the roof with white acrylic paint.


I gave a coat of gesso to the Autumn Leaves and the Love Lock and Key Border Set  . I made a composition with all these elements and adhered them to the birdhouse. I added art stones, pearls and glass beads to give more textures. I painted it with metallic rose paint. After dry, I applied the sponge with gesso.


I hope it inspire you today.

Early Bird collection- BoBunny

Hi scrapper friends! I want to share with you a page that I created with the new Early Bird collection by Bo Bunny.
Spring is my favorite season. I love the flowers, the colors of the season, and all of the butterflies and birds flying around because they make me smile. The Early Bird collection shows all of this! It was hard to select the papers because I love all them, but I chose this green paper with the handwriting design, to which I gave textures with the stencil and modeling paste.

I cut out the butterflies and flowers from the papers.

These beauties are the granddaughters of a friend and I think the photo goes perfect with this collection.

Once I created the design on my page with the different die cuts pieces, doilies, etc.. I added some jewels swirls and some pearl dots for a feminine touch on my page.

I love giving dimension to my projects so I added adhesive foam dots on the back of the flowers and doilies so I can highlight these elements and give more interest on certain details.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you find some inspiration.
You can see more inspirations with this collection at BoBunny's blog....HERE


Until next time!! xx

Beautiful Layout- My Creative Scrapbook

Hi there!! I made this page about my nieces using the May LE kit by My Creative Scrapbook and I recorded all the creative process that you can watch in the video tutorial at the end of the post or on my YouTube Channel. Let's take a look....
This paper is my favorite from the Love Story collection by Prima Marketing featured this month in the Limited Edition kit.
I started preparing the paper with gesso clear then I gave textures with the 12 x 12 kit' stencil and modeling paste.

These are my lovely nieces Camila and her little sister Milena. I made this page for them.  I painted with ivory acrylic paint the chipboard and cut it by half to make two pieces that I used in the corners of the photo.

I added some die cuts from the ephemera package but I made fussy cutting from the papers to create this composition.

I made a paste with the mini art stones and gel medium that I spread over all the stencil work on the page.

I cut and distressed the title from the papers.

Baby Boy Shabby Chic Layout

Hello scrapper friends! I made a boy page to share with you today, yes you read well , lol! It's a challenge for me to create boy pages because my style is romantic if I can call it in that way but I did it. I made this page with this precious model that is Nicole's grandson (the owner of Creative Embellishments). Let's take a look...
I started creating textures with the Falling Stars Stencil and modeling paste over the paper from the Forget Me Not collection by Lemoncraft. While the texture were drying, I worked with the chipboards and I applied gesso to all of them, then I embossed all the pieces with pearl embossing powder.

I cut the Butterfly flourish by half and adhered to the bottom corner . I also adhered from the Baby Word Set my title..Baby Boy.

To highlight this beautiful picture I placed it over the Easter frame.  I adhered the baby boots from the Baby Set.

I added more textures with art stones, glass beads and pearls .
