Secret Garden Tag

Hello! I have a tag to share with you that I created with the beautiful Secret Garden collection by Graphic 45. I started cutting a tag from one of the papers using the tag die from Graphic 45.  I adhered it to one of the ivory tag from the tag albums after I distressed ink all the borders with ink..  Then I added color with a sponge to the background using the Color Box-Graphic 45 inks with a stencil. I cut out some flowers and butterflies from the Secret Garden collection papers and adhered them with 3D foam tape to add dimension. I also adhered some chipboards from the same collection. Once I adhered the different images I gave textures around them with a stencil with modeling paste. Next I painted the textures with the French Lilac ink that I mixed with water and applied with a brush.

Art Palette with Video Tutorial

Hello my scrappers friends!! I have an art palette chipboard that I altered using the fantastic Creative Embellishments products. I started my project applying a coat of white gesso to the  Art Palette  chipboard.  Once it’s dry, I gave textures with the  Fairy Dust  stencil and modeling paste. You can watch all the creative process in the video tutorial at the end of this post. I adhered old brushes with gel medium but I wanted to create the effect that the brushes are flying so I adhered the beautiful  Fairy Wing Set 1   of each side of the brushes. I adhered with gel medium on the background some of the  Gear Set 2 Large  and the  Gear 1 1/2 .  Next,  I added flowers, pebbles, pearls and more textures mixing mini art stones with gel medium.  I gave color with Color Blooms and metallic paints. Other supplies I used: Prima Marketing: Art Basics- Gesso, Modeling paste Art ingredients- mini art stones, pearls, flowers Metallic Paints Ranger Distress I

Celebrate Layout & Video Tutorial for Graphic 45

Hello my scrapper friends!  I’m so excited to share with you my first project as Graphic 45 Ambassador. I created a layout using one of my favorites collection  Botanical Tea .  I started giving textures to the polka dot paper with a stencil and modeling paste. I dab the Antiquing Dye Ink over the acrylic mat and I mixed it with water to paint all the stencil work. I let it dry. I took one tag from the Regular Ivory Tag Albums to mat the photo. I distressed with the ClearSnap Decades Dye Pad all the edges of the tag and the photo. I cut out the flowers, butterflies, birds and, leaves from the papers. Once I created the design on my page with the different chipboard, stickers and die cuts pieces, I added  3D foam tape on the back of them. It added dimension and highlight these elements. I added some art stones with gel medium to create more textures and for a feminine touch, I added some pearls here and there. You can watch all the creative process in the vid

Traveler Tags

Hi my scrapper friends! I want to share with you a couple of tags with the video tutorial that I made using the new World Traveler collection by Bo Bunny. I love to travel so I had fun creating with this collection. I tried to highlight the vintage look of this collection using brown, copper inks. But let me start from the beginning, I cut two pieces 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" from two different ivory papers from the collection. I gave textures with the Backsplash stencil and modeling paste. In my first tag,  I adhered some clocks and gears that I cut out  from the Bo Bunny's craft dies with a brown paper from the collection. To give dimension and interest I adhered some die cut from the Noteworthy package with adhesive foam dots. In the second tag, I used the same elements but created a different composition. These are three of the products that I used to create the tags. The Noteworthy package with all the fantastic die cuts pieces so easy to work wi

World Traveler Layout - Bo Bunny

Hi scrapper friends! I want to share with you a project that I created using the new Word Traveler collection by Bo Bunny. I travel to different countries in order to teach mixed media and scrapbooking classes. Last month, I went to Ecuador and took this photo with the beautiful mountains on the back. When I saw this collection I knew they were the perfect papers for this picture as the theme and colors match perfectly.  I started by selecting this paper with neutral colors and nautical designs as the background, and added textures using a clock stencil with modeling paste. I started to create my design using the die cuts pieces, stickers and letters that I made with the alphabet punch board. I adhered 3D foam dots behind the die cuts, photo and letters to add dimension and interest in some areas on my page. I added textures with beads around the letters to highlight them and painted their background with a burgundy color. Here are three different pr

June LE kit- My Creative Scrapbook

Hi there!! Here's my first project with the beautiful Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook. Pam put together fantastic products in this kit. It is featuring the Havana collection by Prima Marketing, fabulous chipboards by Creative Embellishments, fantastic stencils by Vicky Boutin and much more...  Now let me show you what I did with the kit and I also made the video tutorial 😊 I love this paper I think is my favorite from this collection. My challenge was how to highlight the photo with this busy paper but I think I got it right. I cut a heart shape on the paper and adhered a piece of  green paper from the same collection. You can watch all the creative process in the video on my YouTube channel.  I used the chipboard and die cuts from the same collection to decorate around the photo and flowers. I was inspired on the same paper design to create the background. I adhered letters from the ABC here and there, then I gave a coat of gesso over all the textures .

A Coffee Tag

Hello everyone! I love coffee, the aroma the flavor so it was so delicious and fun to create this tag. I used mugs, coffee items from the Creative Embellishments shop. I started cutting two pieces from the  Full of Heart Panel  and adhering to one of the  Large Tags .   I covered the tag with cheesecloth then I gave textures with the  Heart Bokeh Stencil  and modeling paste. First, I applied a thin coat of gesso, second I distressed with ink to all the pieces of the  Coffee Set I painted with Distress Oxides the Coffee word and the tag with artisan powder, distress inks and wax. I added different textures with fabric, art stones, micro beads and adhered with gel medium two cute   Coffee Flair  . I also adhered some coffee beans that brings a delicious aroma to the project.
