Cherish - 49 and Market

Hello everyone! I hope you are well and safe! I want to share with you a multiple photos page that I created for 49 and Market using the Vintage Artistry Color Saige collection. 

I started applying a coat of clear gesso to the Delicate paper that has a lovely design with leaves. I added textures on the background using the Gratitude Today stamp set with Versamark and white embossing powder. I framed three photos with the Vintage Artistry Sage Stitch Frames. Next, I created a design using the different laser cuts from the same collection.

I started to embellish the page with the white Daisy stems and Sugar stems Fluff flowers. I added more textures using cheesecloth and white lace. I used a brush with Distress Ink to add color over the stamp work and around the embellishments. The title “Cherish” is one of the chipboard words from the treasure archival board.

I applied microbeads and art stones with gel medium and added some Wishing bubbles and finally, white paint splatters over all the work.
You can enjoy all the creative process in the next video tutorial. I hope it inspires you!

Never Stop Exploring Mixed Media Layout- 49 and Market

Hello my friends! It have been a long time without make any blog post here, the last one was in October 2018, wow,can you imagine.  But I'm not going to talk about all the things that happened to me right now. These are incredible days with lot of challenges to all of us. I think we are lucky to have this hobby that help us to relax, to stay a little calm, well depends each circumstance but in my case it helps me so much. I hope all of you are well, safe and can stay home. 
Now I"m going to share you a beach theme layout that I've been made for 49 and Market with the video tutorial.
Let's get started....

Hola mis amigos ha sido un largo tiempo sin hacer ninguna publicacion aqui, el ultimo fue en Octubre 2018, wow se imaginan.  Pero no voy hablarles ahora de todas las cosas que me sucedieron . Estos dias son increibles con muchos retos para todos nosotros. Yo pienso que nosotros tenemos suerte de tener este pasatiempo que nos ayuda a relajarnos, a estar mas calmados, bueno depende de cada circunstancia pero en mi caso me ayuda mucho. Espero esten bien, seguros y puedan quedarse en sus casa.
Ahora les voy a mostrar una pagina con video tutorial de tema playero que he hecho para 49 and Market.
Vamos a comenzar....
I started applying a coat of clear gesso to the Underwater Treasure paper from the Shipwreck collection. This one has soft colors that go perfectly with the lovely photo by Emily Goodhart. I applied gel medium to the laser cut frames and starfish to make them more sturdy. I gave textures with a stencil and modeling paste to the paper. Once dry, I started to add acrylic paints to the background in very similar colors to the photo in light blue and ivory. While the paints were drying, I framed the photo.

Comenze aplicando una capa de gesso transparente al papel Underwater Treasure de la coleccion Shipwreck. Este tiene unos colores suaves que van perfecto con la foto de Emily Goodhart. Le aplique del gel medium a los cortes de laser marcos, estrellas de mar para endurecerlos mas. Le di texturas con una plantilla y pasta de modeling al papel. Una vez seco, comenze a dar color al papel con pinturas de acrilico en colores similares a la foto in azul suave y crema. Mientras las pinturas se secaban, enmarque la foto.

I adhered a piece of cream Lacey Trim and on top, a piece of white cheesecloth, next I glued the frames and photo.
I took a piece of Jute Cording- 5 Ply and made three knots and adhered it to the bottom part of the frame, it gives a nautical look to the page. I started to embellish the page with the flowers: Enchanted Petals- Parchments and the Flower Mini-Series- Tangerines. I also added the Never Stop Exploring chipboards, layered embellishments, and laser cuts. I stamped randomly on the background with the Pascale’s Ration Stamp Set and Archival Ink.

Pegue un pedazo del encaje cream Lacey trim y encima un pedazo de gasa, luego pegue los marcos y foto.  Tome un pedazo de cordon de jute y le hice tres nudos y lo adheri al pie del marco, est le da un toque nautico a la pagina.
Comenze a decorar la pagina con: flores- Enchannted Petals- Parchments y las Mini Flores- Tangerines. Tambien le puse los chipboards Never Stop Exploring, los adornos Layered Embellisments y cortes en laser de la misma coleccion.  Estampe aleatoriamente usando el sello Pascale's Ration Stamp con tinta negra Archival.

Finally, I added some mini art stones and regular art stones with gel medium. I adhered some blue bubbles from the Layered Embellishments. I also glued some pearls and added some white paint splatters around all the work.

Finalmente, Le puse  Mini y regulares Art Stones que adheri con gel medium.  Pegue algunas burbujas del paquete de Layered Embellisments.  Tambien pegue algunas perlas y le di salpicaduras de pintura blanca alrededor del trabajo.

I made a step by step video tutorial that I hope you enjoy…
