Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!

 

This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “use some lucky stars” !
This was such an awesome theme to work with, so I am really excited to see what you guys will come up with this time!
I used a beautiful Stencil from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusive….and I loved it!

For the background of this art journal cover I upcycled a piece of cardboard that I distressed a little using scissors. I covered it entirely with gesso and I used Dylusions Paint to add color. I kept adding colors over colors trying to blend the layers in between. I loved it so much I wasn’t able to stop!

I added few stamps here and there using Archival Ink and stamps by Tim Holtz, I love how the black makes the background stands out even more…

I applied modeling paste through a Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Stencil released in September. I love this mosaic star and it was perfect for this week’s theme! I let the modeling paste dry then I added color. I tried to make an hombre effect, but I am not entirely sure that it worked….lol!

I used a stickers from the Small Talk stickers by Tim Holtz, this one was also so perfect!

The spine of the Art Journal cover is simply a Manila Tag that I also colored with Dylusions Paint and stamped with Archival Ink and some script stamps by Dina Wakley.

I sewed over the cardboard — yes you read it right! The cardboard was not that thick so I tried to sew on it, I went really slow and…it worked! I also stapled the cardboard over a piece of burlap to make it stand out a bit more.

With the Distress Paint Black Soot I added some shadow here and there and with the white paint pen I added scribbles around the stenciled star!

Ciao a tutti!

Eccoci ad una nuova sfida su Simon Says Stamp!

 

Il tema di questa settimana sul blog Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange è “use some lucky stars” !
Questo tema è stato davvero un bel tema su cui lavorare quindi sono davvero curiosa di vedere cosa creerete voi e su come vi lascerete inspirare da questo tema!
Io per la mia creazione ho usato uno stencil esclusivo di Simon Says Stamp…e lo adoro!

Per lo sfondo di questa copertina ho riciclato un pezzo di cartone da imballo e l’ho distressato con le forbici. Ho ricoperto interamente lo sfondo con il gesso e ho usato i dylusions paint per aggiungere colore. Ho continuato ad aggiungere colori su colori cercando di mischiare bene il colore in ogni strato! Mi è piaciuto talmente tanto che non riuscivo più a fermarmi!

Ho aggiunto qualche timbrata qua e la usando l’archival ink e dei timbri di Tim Holtz, ho usato il nero perchè mi piace particolarmente sui colori accesi come quelli che ho usato io.

Ho applicato la modeling paste attraverso lo Stencil esclusivo di Simon Says Stamp che è stato messo in commercio a settembre. Mi piace un sacco questa stella mosaico ed era perfetta per il tema di questa settimana!

Ho lasciato asciugare la modeling paste e poi ho aggiunto altro colore cercando di ricreare un effetto sfumato! Non sono convinta del risultato ma diciamo che mi piace!

Il sentiment è uno stickers sempre di Tim Holtz anche questo…perfetto per il tema!

Il dorso di questa copertina di Art Journal è formato semplicemente da una tag che ho colorato usando gli stessi Dylusions Paint.

Ho cucito sopra il cartone — si avete letto bene! il cartone non era molto spesso quindi ho provato a cucirlo! Ho cucito molto lentamente per paura di rompere l’ago…ma niente danni! Ho inoltre attaccato con la pinzatrice il cartone ad un ritaglio di burlap per far si che risaltasse ancora di più.

Ho usato il Distress Paint Black Soot per aggiungere ombre intorno alla copertina e la penna bianca per aggiungere delle linee intorno alla stella!

    LOVE how this turned out! The amazing thing here is that it looks fantastic from any angle. I loved seeing it from the side view as much as I loved the front (and that was a lot of love)! You have a great talent for building up colors in a fascinating way and your attention to detail is incredible. I particularly love how you did the white outline of the star. Brilliant!!!
