Hello Crafters!
Today I have an awesome news to share with you! For the month of January I will be Guest Designer over Simon Says Stamp! This is also a new thing for the Monday Challange, so to be the first Guest Designer double the happiness and honor!


So without any further ado, here is the first challange of the 2016 over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange!Theme is “SOMETHING NEW”! This theme is really easy and it allows you to touch different interpretations! The team over Simon Says Stamp will also use Tim Holtz’s products… I used some too, did you recognize them already!?

Every time I think at the theme “something new” I think at butterflies! Nothing in Nature make me think about “new” than butterflies! They are “born” when something else “ends” and every ends…is always a new beginning…So I altered a canvas!
I covered the canvas using pieces of paper from the collection Tim Holtz Idea-ology 12×12 Paper Stash Crowded Attic to glue the paper down i used Ranger Multi Medium Matte Paint Glue then I covered the sides of the canvas with tissue tape Tim Holtz Idea-olody Tissue Tape Symphony Music Self Adhesive Vintage Paper.

I covered the canvas with Dina Wakley Ranger Gesso ,I let it dry and then I added colors using Distress Ink as “water colors “. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Fossilized Amber , Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Mermaid Lagoon , Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Walnut Stain e Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Black Soot to darken up the borders.

To embellish the canvas I used die cuts. I used Ranger Black Cardstock as base and I cut out a butterfly from Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Butterfly Duo and I used Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Pinecone to cut out three roses. To make sure that the dies were playable I also stick it down Ranger Foil Cardstock on the back of the black cardstock before sending it through the big shot.

The last touches were to add a bit of sparkle and shine with Ranger Perfect Pearls Interference GreenRanger Perfect Pearls Interferente Blue , Tim Holtz Distress Paint Antiqued Bronze , Tim Holtz Distress Paint Tarnished Brass.I glued a charm over the butterfly from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Pen Nibs .

and finally, my wording are stickers from these stickers sheet Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2015 Occasions Small Talk Stickers , Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2015 Small Talk Stickers.

Ciao a tutti!
oggi ho una notizia bella da condividere con voi… per il mese di Gennaio sarò Guest Designer sul blog di Simon Says Stamp! Questa è una novità per il challange del Lunedì, quindi essere la prima Guest Designer è un doppio onore!


Quindi senza tanti giri di parole vi presento la prima sfida di quest’anno del Monday Challange Blog su Simon Says Stamp!Il tema è “SOMETHING NEW”! Il tema è molto semplice e permette di toccare diversi significati. Nuove cose, nuovo lavoro, nuove speranze ecc ecc….
Il design Team di Simon Says Stamp vi presenta i prodotti di Tim Holtz… anche io ne ho usati! Li avete gia’ riconosciuti?

Io ogni volta che penso al tema “something new” (qualcosa di nuovo) penso alle farfalle! Niente in Natura mi ricorda il tema di “nuovo” come le farfalle. In fondo le farfalle “nascono” da un qualcosa che finisce, ed ogni fine è sempre un nuovo inizio…Quindi ho alterato una tela!
Ho ricoperto l’intera tela usando pezzi di carta della collezione Tim Holtz Idea-ology 12×12 Paper Stash Crowded Attic e per incollare i ritagli di carta alla tela ho usato il Ranger Multi Medium Matte Paint Glue e ho poi ricoperto i bordi del canvas con il washi tape Tim Holtz Idea-olody Tissue Tape Symphony Music Self Adhesive Vintage Paper.

Ho coperto di gesso parte della tela, ho usato il gesso di Dina Wakley Ranger Gesso , ho asciugato e poi ho aggiunto colore usando i Distress Ink come “acquarelli”. Ho usato Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Fossilized Amber , Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Mermaid Lagoon , Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Walnut Stain e Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Black Soot per scurire i bordi.
Per decorare la tela ho usato delle fustellate. Ho usato il Ranger Black Cardstock come base e ho fustellato una farfalla dalla fustella Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Butterfly Duo e ho adattato la fustellaTim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Pinecone per ottenere tre rose. Per far si che il cartoncino risultasse malleabile ho usato il Ranger Foil Cardstock sul retro del cartoncino nero prima di fustellare.

Gli ultimi tocchi sono stati aggiungere un pò di luce usando i Ranger Perfect Pearls Interference GreenRanger Perfect Pearls Interferente Blue , Tim Holtz Distress Paint Antiqued Bronze , Tim Holtz Distress Paint Tarnished Brass. Sulla farfalla ho anche aggiunto un charm della collezione Tim Holtz Idea-ology Pen Nibs .

Ed infine…le “parole”. Sono un mix di stickers della collezione Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2015 Occasions Small Talk Stickers , Tim Holtz Idea-ology 2015 Small Talk Stickers.

    Your piece of art stopped me in my tracks…or in my browsing? Not sure what to call it while on the computer and I am stunned still, but that's what happened when I saw this piece. What an amazing eye for design you have and this color palette is absolutely stunning. I loved seeing every detail of this and am so glad you shared it with us at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!!

    mi piace da impazzire la tua tela Zoey! mi trasmette tantissima energia e nello stesso tempo mi fa sognare, partire, volare via, in mezzo a tutti quei colori che promettono l'entrata in wonderland, tra fiori e natura e tutto quello che la fantasia riesce ad immaginare.
    Mi fai sognare Zoey.
    Grazie!
