Travel Journal Page

 Hello my friends.  This is almost the end of a great Friday... very productive!  I have worked and done a lot of things at the office, but still managed to enjoy Summer hours and did a lot of pending tasks.
I thought I was not going to be able to share something with my Unity Friends with Flair today, but then I checked and there was still some time, so even though this project might get some more love in the next few days (not to say it is incomplete; but admitting there's still some modeling paste and ink that need to dry... LOL!), I want to share it with you.

I plan to enjoy a vacation sometime before the year ends so I decided I was going to use a SMAK book I've had for the last 2 or 3 years and have not used.  So... I finally admitted I will not used it quite as a journal for the everyday life, but I will have it as a travel journal.   And this is the first page...
I used stamps, washi tapes, modeling paste, ink, paint, markers, stencils and sprays. 
What do you think?

I will link up to Friday Friends with Flair at Unity Stamp Co... so if you leave a comment you have a chance to win goodies from Unity.  Have a great weekend.

Llegó, llegó... llegó la Navidad! Navidades en julio!

No sé si saben, pero Latina Crafter está llevando a cabo un Blog Hop con motivo de celebrar la Navidad en julio y adelantarse un poquito para inspirarnos a empezar a trabajar nuestras tarjetas, tags, o proyectos navideños con tiempo.
Pueden participar dejando comentarios en las entradas de las DT members participantes AQUI.
Y también pueden ustedes hacer su proyectito navideño y compartirlo para inspiración de todos y para participar de un sorteo.

Yo hice una tarjeta para empezar ya con el espíritu navideño.

Utilicé una base de cardstock rojo y un papel de diseño de una colección de esas bien viejitas que tengo  todavía guardadas o con pedazos sobrantes.  (A propósito, yo tengo muuuuuchos papeles que otros considerarían viejos y no quisieran usar, pero de un tiempo para acá me he propuesto usar todo lo que tengo porque sigue una comprando y entonces se olvida de todo lo que tiene... Les pasa a ustedes?).

Bueno, utilicé también un doilly o blonda que pinté con colores rojo y verde.  Estas pinturas en "spray" tiene un glimmer o brillito que hace que se vea espectacular.  Si le dan click a la foto lo podrán apreciar mejor.

También usé sorbetos, tela de saco, una flor, baker's twine, y lentejuelas.  En la tarjetita del centro estampé el mensaje "Feliz Navidad" del kit de Frases Navideñas de Latina Crafter.

Espero les haya gustado la tarjeta y no olviden participar ustedes también.

LCSC#49 - Sketch Challenge de Latina Crafter - Tema Baby Shower

Hola... feliz domingo!

El reto de "sketch" de este mes en Latina Crafter tiene como tema "baby shower".  Todavía estás a tiempo de participar pues está vigente durante todo el mes de julio.  Información AQUI.

Hice una tarjetita combinando colores suaves con fuertes para un resultado no muy tradicional de lo que es el tema de bebé, pero sin dejar de ser alusivo al tema, en este caso muy de niña (girly).

Corté un marco Polaroid con el "die" de Latina Crafter para utilizarlo como el marco/cuadro en el sketch.   Y para los banners que se sugieren, utilicé sellos, así como para el mensaje de "Felicidades".

El trajecito es en "chipboard" de la colección de Dear Lizzy de American Crafts.  La base del cardstock amarillo tiene pintura que salpiqué además de varias lentejuelas.

Y a la izquierda pueden ver un sorbeto que corté y pequé para compartir la dimensión que los banderines en 3D y el trajecito brindan a la composición.

Me encantó el resultado.  Espero que a ustedes también.  Déjenme saber si les gustó dejando un comentario en esta entrada del blog.   Y no olviden visitar Latina Crafter para participar del reto o para ver los otros trabajos e inspirarse.

A Christmas Angel!

Hello Friends.
It's Monday night here in the Tropics!  It's a Hot Summer, and we need some rain around here.  But before going to bed and turning on the air conditioner, let me share with you this card I made to contribute to three different challenges.

I got inspired on Unity Be Inspired "color inspiration 30".  You can check it out HERE.

Then I followed the "Holiday" topic from Addicted to Stamps and More HERE.

Finally, I am entering this in the "Things with Wings" challenge from Incy Wincy Designs, HERE.

So I ended up with a beautiful Christmas Angel with non traditional colors.

I colored this beauty with pigment inks, copics and watercolor pencils.  For the pigment inks, I literally inked an acrylic block and applied to the surface with a water brush.  Love the effect.  Some of the inks have sparkle.  This angel looks fabulous "in person".

Forgive me for the shadows in the photos... I'm not using daylight (it's late), and I did not want to use any flash so you can really see the real colors, with their glimmer and shades.

Hope you liked it.

Would love to get a comment if you did.  And, remember you can follow me on facebook HERE. Just for fun.  Have a good night!

I will also Share this in next Friday Friends with Flair.

Let's Celebrate!

Hello friends. How's your weekend going?  Almost done I know!  Such is life.  Wish I could continue a couple of more days but you know... One has to work.  Hope you celebrated though... And that you had a good time. 

To continue celebrating I made this birthday card that I plan to share in several blog challenges. 

I started with a white base and sprayed some magical colors.  

I separately stamped, colored and cut the image (Unity Stamp Co).  For that I used several medium, from watercolor pencils, to different markers...

Then a final touch with the sentiment and some sequins. 

It's a magical celebration card. Love it. A lovely girl will receive it at her birthday. 

I will share this with:  Curtain Call July Challenge (Celebrate), Addicted to Stamps and More (challenge #151 Anything Goes), Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog (challenge #158 Celebrations), and next Friday Unity Friends with Flair. 

Hope you all like my card. Can't wait to read your comments.

Love will never fail you!

Hello Friday!  Hello Friday Friends!
Some might be off today in celebration of the 4th of July Holiday!  Lucky us!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, even if it's short or a little longer than usual.

I made a card the other day using a die (HERE), and I had the negative part of it so I decided to use it for another card.

I used it as a frame, creating a scalloped square in the center.  I sprayed paint on it and placed it with dimensional adhesives to create depth.

In the center I placed a canvas heart which I painted with some sprays and paint, making sure the center had some acrylic white paint for lighter background to stamp on it.  I stamped this sentiment that says "Love will never fail you".  I got it from a bunch of stamps Unity Stamp Co sent me recently.  I first stamped it with brown staz-on ink to make sure it stays in place, and reinforced it a little with markers.  Then I applied ink only to the part that says "will never fail you" and repeated the stamping.  It's like reinforcing the fact that love will never fail you.

I used some vellum flowers cut with a punch and embellished with MME dots.

I also used another sentiment from a KOTM that says "don't stop believing".  I stamped it in plain cream cardstock and hand cut in shape of banner, same thing I did with other pieces of paper as shown.

The project has an easel behind so it can stand up as a house decor or little frame in a desk. 

Do you like it?

And, of course will share with today's Friends with Flair at Unity Stamp Co.
Leave a comment for a chance to win with Unity, since you can win if you enter with a project, or you can win if you comment in any of the other friends' blogs who entered the game.  It's very cool and you get a lot of inspiration visiting all these friends.

Have a great weekend!
