Love Mini Album

For some time I have wanted to make something for my granddaughter Maya and I decided on mini album with some great quotes about love.
I can only hope she will find love and happiness on the way of her life.

 The album is made from one piece of A4 paper.
It has got 3 pockets with additional tags in them.
I have used my gelli plate prints to cover the pages than stamps and scraps to embellish it.

Forever 59

Today I want to share with you an altered metal lantern with the original dial from the old clock
 Lots of mixed media products were used here but I have to mention artExtravagance  Rust Effect Paste from Prima - it really worked!


It was my way to  honour the memory of my dear husband in my own positive way.
He passed away 3 years ago at the age of 59 and I missed him every single day.

I just want to share a card I made for my friend's birthday.
The background is a gelli plate print with additional stamping.
The butterflies are die cut and hot embossed later.
I wonder if you can see some very tiny, sparkly gems- they are nail art stuff
(my latest faves).

Today I have recycled a small (6x6x6 cm) box. 
You can follow some of my stages in the process:

Gluing some lace to the box with gel medium

Embellishing the lid than covering all with gesso

Adding the colour with Distress inks and Gelatos

More colouring and splashing 

To finish off my project I added some glass balls and tiny metal stars.
They are actually designed for nails  but who cares ;)

Today I'd like to share with you a tag I made inspired by a  mini challenge at more than words blog.

I started with preparing my background with gluing and colouring some pieces lace. The edges were hot embossed-  I have never done this before with lace but it turned out very nice.

My dragonfly is actually  a price tag from a new bought blouse.
I have put some  paste with a stencil and added 3D balls for an extra texture.

The whole thing was coloured with various inks and mists.

To finish it off  I rubbed some metallic vax here and there.

Book cover

I have a great pleasure to be a host of a current challenge at
Our current theme is "Do judge a book by its cover". 

This time I have altered the cover of an old magazine.

I 've started with carving a ,,window"in the cover.

I made my own papers using the pages from the magazine, acrylic paints, stencils and gelli plate.

Than I collaged my papers onto the cover.

These were the metal parts I wanted to arrange in the window.
The rectangle is an old belt buckle.

I highlighted the area with gesso and still not sure if it was a good idea.

I added a few things: some stamping, lettering and outlining with inktense pencils.

Hope you like my project and that I will see you joining our challenge.

vintage journey: stencil it - lots of stencils have been used to print my papers.

She's got the Look

There is a new challenge starting at Try it on Tuesday
This time we want you to create something connected with our theme:
She's got the Look.
Is it her style, her face, smile, eyes that give that special look.
Pop over to the main blog to see gorgeous inspirational pieces of my teamies.

My take on the theme is an art journal page made with gelli plate using magazine Resist Technique and I have to admit I'm quite pleased with that one.
I have followed this video.

I am also saying Good Bye to all my teamies over at Try it on Tuesday.
Thank you girls for all the inspirations and encouraging words you have always had for me. 
Thank you for your friendship!

Let's fake it!

Hi! Today we start a new challenge at Stamps and Stencils.
This time our host is Toni and she has chosen the theme: Let's fake it! for us.
 She'd like to see your projects that include at least one faux finish of our choice.
Produce anything you like but please include some stamping or stencilling or both and join us in the fun!
Pop over to the main blog and get inspired by my wonderful teamies.

I have prepared a ,,metal'' tag full of gears, cogs and screws.
As you can see almost every part of the  tag is a chipboard.

 I started with stenciling some heavy body structure paste to the tag.

Next step was covering all with black gesso.

Some parts were stamped and embossed with copper metallic powder.

Others  covered with rust effect agent set.

The background  was painted  with camouflage paint set.

Starting to put everything together.

I wanted more rust  so I rubbed some Inka Gold metal gloss paint  on some surface. 

 And added some patina effect paste too.

Hope you like it!
