Soar – Canvas for Scrap Around the World

Hello everyone! Today I will show you my take on the futuristic moodboard the amazing Terhi Koskinen has created for the mid month reveal of March Challenge at Scrap around the world. It is a 8x8 canvas dedicated to my 3rd child – hence the No3 sticker lol

soar

I used my beloved Prima flowers and chipboard from Imaginarium Designs and Creative embellishments. The canvas is misted mostly with Shimmerz and Prima mists and all the chipboard are treated with Shimmerz Enamelz. The hot air ballon is covered with 13 arts microbeads and then painted with black watercolor.

Be your own fairytale - SnP March challenge

Καλημέρα και Καλό μήνα!!!

Η πρόκληση του Μαρτίου,
από την αγαπημένη μας Aliki Cavras:


"No one is too old for fairytales"




Εμπνευστείτε από τα παστέλ χρώματα της φωτογραφίας
ή ενσωματώστε κάτι σχετικό με παραμύθι στη δημιουργία σας (π.χ. στον τίτλο)

Φτιάχνετε ότι θέλετε όπως πάντα, είτε σύνθεση, κάρτα, art journal σελίδα,
mixed media καμβά, altered item...

Όπως έχουμε υποσχεθεί για κάθε πρόκληση, σας δίνουμε ένα σκετς για όσες θέλουν να το χρησιμοποιήσουν και τις βοηθάει να έχουν έναν "οδηγό".


 
Και η δική μου εκδοχή
 
 
 
Σας περιμένουμε να παιξουμε!

Time Flies – Canvas for Memories Trend (plus a photo tutorial)

Γεια σας!

Σήμερα θα σας δείξω ενα καμβά που έφτιαξα με μια πολύ αγαπημενη φωτογραφία απο τα παλια.

Μερικά κοντινά

Βλέπετε ποση πολυ λάμψη εχει? Χαρις στο Mandarin Perfect Pearls mist!

cl01

Ελάτε να δούμε σε μερικά απλά βήματα πως δημιουργήθηκε ο καμβας. (Ζητώ συγνωμη για την ποιοτητα των φωτο αλλα ειναι ολες νυχτερινες αφου περιμενω τα μικρουλια να κοιμηθουν πρώτα)

 

Σκίζετε απο το χαρτι κομμάτια και τα κολλάτε πανω στον καμβα. Αραιώνετε λίγο γκεσσο με νερο και περνατε ενα ελαφρύ στρώμα πανω στον καμβα, ωστε να κανετε ενα ελαφρυ whitewash.

IMG_8587

Ήρθε η ώρα να φτιαξετε τα λουλουδια μας. Διπλώστε μια φορά όχι ακριβώς στη μέση και ξανα οπως στις φωτο. Πιαστε με συρραπτικό. Μη σας απασχολει το μεταλλο, δε θα φαινεται καθολου μετα.

IMG_8684 IMG_8685

Τοποθετείστε πανω στον καμβα τη μήτρα κοπής ως στενσιλ και απλώστε modeling paste. Όσο η παστα ειναι υγρη πιεστε επανω της ενα κομματι απο σκισμενο σεμεδακι (ναι, ναι, εγω εβαλα της γιαγιας στη φωτο, vintage). Αντίστοιχα, κολλήστε στον καμβα δαντελες, κορδελες, twine και τα λουλουδια που φτιαξατε.

IMG_8601

Περάστε μια γενναιοδωρη στρώση γκεσσο σε ολα τα διακοσμητικα και αφήστε να στεγνώσει πολύ καλα. Σφραγίστε με archival ink.

IMG_8635

Και τώρα αρχιζει η διασκέδαση! :) Ψεκάστε ή χρωματίστε με τα αγαπημενα σας χρώματα και δειτε τον καμβά σας να ζωντανεύει! Αφου τελειώσετε με τα χρώματα, περαστε ελαφρα λιγο χρυσο στις υπερυψωμένες επιφανειες για να τις τονίσετε.

Με τον ίδιο τρόπο φτιαχτηκε και μια κάρτα. Δεν έχει sentiment, μου αρεσει να εχω παντα διαθεσιμες καρτες και να σφραγίζω επιτοπου οτι sentiment μου ειναι απαραίτητο τη δεδομένη στιγμη.
