Hello scrapper friends! Here's my second project with the Video Tutorial using the January Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook.

I tried to create the effect with paint that the bubbles are spreading out from the photo. I will show you how I made it, check the video.

Pretty flowers by Prima on this kit.

Rust Effect- Creative Embellishments

Hello! I  share with you today a layout that I made with the Creative Embellishments products with a rust effect on the chipboard. Let’s take a look…
I gave a coat of gesso to all the chipboards and the paper. I gave textures on the paper with the Circle Boke Stencil and modeling paste.  Then I adhered The Large Clock Face to the paper that it is Double Dot by Bo Bunny.

I cut the Diamond Panel in pieces and adhered around the Large Clock Face. I painted some areas of the chipboard with a green paint.  After dry,  I applied brown rust paste with a paintbrush.

Once the brown paste is dry I applied the Red Rust paste on the chipboard, it is the final step to achieve the rust effect.

The sweet photo is from Unsplash.

I gave the same techniques to the title “Amor” that in English means “Love”.  It is from the Spanish Happy Word Set.

Other supplies:
Bo Bunny- Double Dot Esmerald paper
Prima Marketing- Heavy Gesso, Modeling Paste, Gel Medium, 
Rust Brown Paste, Art Stones, Lace
Blue Fern Studios- Flowers
Color Blooms

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

Just Us Layout and Video Tutorial- My Creative Scrapbook

Happy New Year!!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time with your family. I didn't have fun, Christmas time is always complicated for my health, autoimmune disease gets out of control, so I have been quiet lately but I'm back.  
It is my first project and video tutorial for 2018! I made this page  with the January LE kit by My Creative Scrapbook. Pam made a beautiful LE kit that is featuring : Kaisercraft, 49 and Market, Prima Marketing, Heidy Swap(album), and much more...

This paper is "Paradise" from the Scents of Nature by 49 & Market from the kit. When I started this page I had a completely different idea on mind , I was thinking in a soft ivory/white page mixed with these pretty layered die-cut embellishments but for some reason I saw the cute birds that are green and I decided to use my new neon green Distress Oxide Ink and experiment with it, lol, well  I don't regret. 

I selected this beautiful wreath flower to frame this sweet photo by

The kit comes with a Prima' stencil that I used to give textures on the background with modeling paste.

I gave extra textures with chessecloth, glass beads, pearls....don't miss the video tutorial !!

I applied Crackle Paste by Stamperia to create these cool effect on the background.
Other products I used:
Stamperia- Crackle Paste
Prima Marketing- Modeling Paste, 3D Gel Matte, glass beads, pearls
Ranger- Distress Oxides Inks- twisted citron, peeled paint, picked raspberry,vintage photo
Sharpie- Paint white marker(water based)

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....

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

Enjoy the Video Tutorial...

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:
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
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.

Other supplies I used:
Prima Marketing:
Color Bloom Peony
Metallic Watercolors
Mica Powder- Gold
Art Basics- White Gesso, Gel Medium
