And here my first page with the Beautiful main kit...
I took this photo of myself because I used to be with my camera on hand capturing memories all the time and I thing this photo is perfect for these beautiful papers.  The main kit comes with this beautiful Zva flower, you'll love this kit!!


More details...


I punched and distressed the paper border and used the old road chalk ink that comes in the kit and match perfect with the paper tones.


The button, pearls and the variety of leaves all you can find in the main kit.








And now my second page..

I love how the sun is reflected in Paola's hair in this picture that I matched with the organic chipboard and these botanical papers and this was my inspiration.


For this page I used the flower and embellishment add-ons.  I painted the big flower (mist)-a-bles that comes in the flower add-on with acrylic paint.


I cut the butterflies from the paper and painted the organic chipboard with acrylic paint.






My third page is based on this beautiful sketch by Amarilis Doria.

Please Join Our July Sketch Challenge HERE

My page....
I made different techniques in this page like the masking circle.  I cut two circles for layers and used the negative of the paper to make a circle with lace form for another layer.  I will show you how I did it, later this month, stay tune to Scrap Blog for my tutorial.

The Color Room #115 and Featured page, too!

Hello there!   My PC is sick, yes I've been without PC these days, difficult life without one, lol!  The hard part is that all my photos are in it...and I don't like to loose them so I'm working on that.  This is my second post today, so don't miss the first one you can see it in the end of this post.
I made this page last week for TCR #115.  When I saw the color palette and the sketch I loved it.  I decided to work with this photo of Paola when she had two and a half years old, she had these gorgeous curls and this was my inspiration.

Flower Tutorial


Hello there! I'm going  to show you how I made these flower with my Scrap That June kit. I made this tutorial for Scrap That blog...HERE
These flowers are easy to make.
These are the materials I used to make my flowers: Distress ink-tattered rose colour,  a circle punch, Martha Steward Leaf Punch
and for the big flower I used Stamping up punch. 


I punched my leafs, proximately ten. 

I also punched a 5/8" circle for the base of my flower.


Distressing ink around each leaf.

Carefully, fold the petals or leaf facing up.

Then glue the petals around the circle. 

It should look like this.

Now add glue to the center of the flower and start to add another round of petals.

It should be like this...

For the center, I glued some pearls.

I painted the pearls.

Color Box brush pad- Canary color.

This is the result.
I hope you have enjoy, Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time!
