My canvas heart card...

Hello friends.  I've been so busy at work and with other stuff that I haven't been able to post projects lately. 

I had to make something today to feed the hobby vein. LOL. So I made this card very appropriate for the love month. 

I stamped text in the white card base (stamp from Glitz Designs).  I then distressed a red dotted patterned paper an placed as a layer with some twine. 

I also stamped a sentiment with some text background too (Unity Stamp Co), and heat embossed with silver powder. 

The heart is a canvas to which I applied modeling paste with a stencil (Latina Crafter) and also colored with spray. 

I love my card. I will share this one with current Take It Make It challenge at Craft Stamper magazine, and also Curtain Call challenge.

Mini Canvas by Scrapper Myra

Hola  a todos.  Quise hacer algo especial con el tema del amor, y sobre mensajes positivos.  A muchos les han gustado mis trabajos con medios mixtos y quise hacerlos en miniatura.  Ninguno mide más de 3 a 4 pulgadas. Utilicé diferentes materiales, tales como pintura acrílica, gelatos, crayola, marcadores, papel, metales, telas, sellos (stamps), "sprays", cordón, "modeling paste", madera, perlas, brillantes, "glitter", flores, vellum, glossy accents, lentejuelas y mucho más...

Cada mini Canvas tiene su "personalidad" y estilo... Para todos los gustos. Creo que pueden servir como excelentes detalles del Día del Amor, y quienes los reciban sabrán que están recibiendo un regalo original, creativo y único. 

Aquí se los muestro uno a uno y espero les gusten. Al final del post les dejo con link del reto actual LCSC55 de Latina Crafter el cual tiene un twist con el tema de amor y este trabajo va muy a tono, por lo que voy a compartir este post en dicho reto. 







Aquí una foto de todas las creaciones.  Déjame un comentario y dime cuál de todos es tu favorito. 

A continuación el link para el reto de Latina Crafter.  Saludos.

More LOVE cards

Remember my LOVE card from yesterday?
Well I made other three following the same concept design.  

I sprayed different combinations of color paint for background. 

Hearts are hand cut in vellum... Different shapes and sizes... Crafty handy. 
And they are also sprayed with colors. 

Stamped sentiments and added sequins and cord. Love the modern artistic look they ended up with. 

Here's the complete set. 

Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by. You can also follow me in Facebook and Instagram.  Look for me as Scrapper Myra.

Almost February

Almost February, and I'm already thinking of St. Valentine's Day.  I made a couple of  cards hand cutting hearts in vellum and spraying  some paint. 

This is one of them. I stamped a sentiment and also used some cord and sequins to embellish. 

Hope you liked it. I have some more to show you later. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.   And don't forget to celebrate love every day.

Love Tag

Hello my friends.  Just a quick stop to show you this tag.  I made it with scraps from other projects recently made.  

Love theme is in my head since today is my 18th Wedding Anniversary and St Valentine's Day is coming soon.

The tag has texture with modeling paste, burlap, vellum, papers and more... plus a stamped "LOVE" word in the center.

Hope you like it... :)  I love my Love tag.

Mixed Media Canvas: Paris

Hello my friends...

A friend celebrated her birthday recently, and I made this for her.  I have it made since last week but didn't want to reveal until she received it to avoid her knowing before.  LOL

I started with gesso to prepare the surface of the canvas, and chose some papers to position in some designated spots.  I also included one to be as a guide for a photo I will use later.

I used gelatos and water to start bringing colors to the composition.  I made it on the top side and then turned it upside down to do the same. 

I also added some more color with Prima color sprays, and prepared some modeling paste with acrylic paint to add texture.

I also used some glitter paste I recently bought... Love it.  And stamped some images and abstract forms, plus the main sentiment.

I continued blending colors and added the photo...

I also added wood embellishments, burlap, flowers, metals, pearls, and chipboard letters painted with distress stains, and even some rub-ons.

I love the final results.  I added a base in the back so the "artwork" can be displayed.

I really love the final result.  Do you?

I will share with Take It Make It Challenge in Craft Stamper magazine blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thank You - Double Layout

 I had these photos from last Thanksgiving and wanted to make a layout.  I went for a two-page spread layout.

In the left I wanted to use just one photo to stand out, and in the right side I used multiple.

With the same paper I embellished the pages cutting the flowers from the design, and cutting circles and strips of papers.

This is the left page... this is my DH and me.

At the right side, I have this black and white photo of mom and me, and two photos of the food.

Here's how they look together.  Hope you like them.
