Fim de ano...

 
 
Gente do céu!!!!!! Tadinho do meu blog...em terras de facebook, instagram, whatsapp o pobrezinho ficou abandonado e restrito aos posts dos design teams. Vamos ver se consigo (mais uma vez rs), ativar ele.
 
Pra compensar o tempo que andou parado, venho postar vários layouts que estavam inéditos aqui e mesmo no FB. O primeiro, acima, bem free style do jeito que gosto...foi feito só com retalhos de várias coleções diferentes, conseguem identificar? Tem October Afternoon, Sassafras, Goodies, fundo feito com máscara da Arte.1 e algumas masking tapes (adoro). Para enfeitar chipboard, brilhos e claro carimbos.

 
 Já o layout abaixo foi feito com uma técnica de mixed media. Forrei o fundo todo com folhas de livros, dilui tinta acrílica em 2 cores (azul e rosa) e respingei por todo papel, deixando escorrer e depois borrifei gesso misturado com água.
Deixei secar e passei rubon metálico azul no contorno too da páfina. Usei um carimbo de manuscrito para incrementar o fundo.


O layout abaixo tem só papéis da Websters - amo muiiiiito :)
O findo foi feito com chalk mist da Tattered Angels e máscara da Arte.1. Essa minha sobrinha é uma boneca...adoro as fotos da Juju,


E por último um layout que só pode ser definido como um surto mixed media hahahah.
O fundo fiz primeiro pincelando gesso com um pincel bem largo.Depois que secou usei uma máscara e chalk mist verde claro. Depois peguei vários carimbos (vários mesmo, uns 5 ou 6) e sai carimbando com stazn preta em diversos lugares.
Rasguei umas tiras de papel e colei, carimbando novamente por cima. Depois de achar onde queria colocar a foto, fui colando de tudo um pouco em volta, pra dar volume...flores, botões, metais, enfeite em mdf, blings, feltro. O final você confere abaixo...gostei muito rsrsrs. Ao vivo tem um volume muito bacana.


Obrigada pela visita, apesar do meu sumiço temporário...já estou agendando vários posts pra não ficar abandonado de novo rsrsrs. Confira ainda essa semana um PAP mixed media :)

So this month Im bringing some of my recent card creations. Zva's crystals and pearls are to me the perfect final touch to all cards I make. It can be a simple desig but when you put a bling, it's another level of glam right? :)
 



 
Both cards are already out of my stash and went to special friends on their bdays. I think it makes a difference when you give paper/artcrafted cards to your friends - it's a sign of our love and friendship, that we took sometime designing and making something that they would like (we hope so! lol)
 
If you would like to play along with our design team, just follow along the blog path. I am linking to one of the Zva designers and that designer is linking to the next and so on. Be prepared to be inspired along the way!
 
The Blog Hop starts today, October 28th and runs through midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, October 29th.
***Prizes***
Hidden on FIVE of the designer's blogs is a Zva Creative prize package! Winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. All you need to do is leave a comment on this Blog Hop post... you do not need to leave a comment on each and every designer's blog post to qualify. However, the more times you comment along the blog hop path, the more chances you will have to win.
The 5 winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 30th on Zva Creative's Facebook page!
We also thought it would be more fun to add even more chances to win our blog hop prize! To increase your chances of winning:
* Comment to let us know that you posted on your Facebook page about our hop (link to any of the blog hop posts)

Cartão com LDRS




Oi meninas,

Hoje vim partilhar com vocês 2 paixões recentes...a minha Sil e a pintura com Distress Markers.
Na CHA tive a oportunidade de brincar e ter umas aulinhas com especialistas em pintura que estão no DT da Little Darlings Rubber Stamps (LDRS) comigo e definitivamente, eu não vou comprar as Copics.
O efeito é lindo, mas além do custo, achei empenho demais usar 4-5 cores para cada tom desejado. E em contra partida AMEI as Distress Inks e dicas da minha amiga de DT Becky.
Ela arrasa com as DM e me deu super dicas. Juntando isso e visitinhas para observar o Tim no stand da Ranger na CHA e cá estou eu, apaixonada por pintar meus carimbinhos rsrs.

Esse carimbo lindo é da LRDS e você encontra na loja ou pode encomendar comigo também :)
O sentimento também, ainda não está na loja,mas logo logo chega.

 
A maioria dos papéis também é da LDRS...só o do fundo, a base do cartão que não. Fiz vários recortes na Sil para esse cartão. A tela em vermelho, a seta e a borda além do tapete da carimbada, todo cheio de recortes. Tudo na belezinha...Sensacional essa máquina.
Para enfeitar completei com flores, laço e uns blings da Zva Creative. Pronto...
 
E aí, o que acharam do cartão?
 
Quem tiver interesse em aula com Distress Markers (podem ser técnicas diversas ou só pintura de carimbos),pode falar comigo por aqui ou me passar um email no fabi.ormerod@gmail.com.
Em setembro vou dar uma aula completa em Curitiba sobre Distress Markers...logo passo os detalhes.

For this month blog hop I have created a mix media layout. To start I have chosen some parts of my background and covered it with lace, applying a fine layer of gesso onto it. Afterwards I have using molding paste and a mask to add some texture in the white spaces and covered my background with 2 colors of mist (yellow and a very light peach).
I used paint all around the background page to create a frame (in copper).
Then was just to build the page using several paper scraps (mostly Bo Bunny and Prima) and take opportunity of Zva's great crystals to embellish it.
The pictures are from my husband when he was only 2-3 yo :)  - Cute boy! lol
 

And here a close up of Zva's Creative crystal used:

Prima BAP - Junho e Scrap pelo Brasil

 

Oi meninas,
 
Nossa o ano voou (coisa de velha falar isso né? mas é verdade,voou rs)...nem acredito que junho já chegou.
Um mês e estarei na CHA em Las Vegas, realizando um grande sonho como scrapper. Fui convidada para ir para a feira pela Little Darlings e estarei no stand deles. O Francis aproveitou e vai junto, teremos 2 diazinhos livres lá e um em NYC antes. Uma micro férias a 2, mas que certamente vai valer a pena.
Quem quiser comprar carimbos da Little Darlings ou produtos da Zva Creative, fale comigo, vou trazer produtos das 2 marcas e você economiza o frete. Pode escolher seus produtos direto no site deles. É só me passar um email ok?
 
Eu participei a primeira vez do BAP da Prima mês passado e gostei muito do resultado e da inspiração que me trouxe. Tenho tanto material parado aqui em casa e nunca tinha percebido quanta coisa da Prima hahahaha.
 
O sketch de Junho é esse do início do post e abaixo a minha participação. Aproveitei e já criei um layout que também atendesse o desafio do mês no Scrap pelo Brasil, onde o desafio é usar uma foto só nossa e fazer um lo sobre a gente. 
 

Para esse layout usei uma técnica diferente para personalizar meu cardstock branco de fundo. Viram como a tinta parece raspada no fundo? São 3 cores de mist. Apliquei a cor mais clara e bem suave no fundo em alguns pontos somente. Deixei o mist espirrar um pouco na placa de corte, de propósito.
Apliquei a segunda cor, um rosa mais forte e também deixei espirrar na placa. Em seguida, virei o papel e literalmente esfreguei, como se estivesse passando um pano, sobre a placa de corte, criando esse efeito raspado. não fica legal? E de quebra as cores se misturam.
O azul que vocês podem ver na borda/contorno todo do papel é rubon metálico azul.

Para esse layout usei retalhos de várias coleções diferentes da Prima, além de chipboard, flores e alfabeto também deles. O journaling pequeno,abaixo do título fala das mudanças que estou fazendo na minha vida esse ano e em como estou feliz buscando esse novo equilibrio de corpo e mente através dos exercícios de aikidô, Co.R.PO e Kettlebell.

Uma ótima semana para vocês :)

English shorter version

Last month was the first time I have joinned Prima BAP challenge and liked a lot. This month sketch was the basis for the layout above, where I played with mists to create an unique background to match the papers and embellies I used. This layout also followed the theme About Me, for a local challenge blog called Scrap pelo Brasil.
The papers used are from many different Prima collections. I like to mix patterned papers that apparenly wouldn't match.To do that I select the papers and create a color pallete to follow. We can make all those different papers coordinate between themselves by creating a background with colors that would align all materials into a cohesive pallete.
I have also used Prima letters, chipboard and flowers to add additional layers to my project.
Hope you like it and thanks for your visit.
Wishing you all a great week!

Layouts


 
 Oi meninas,
 
Hoje vim partilhar alguns layouts que fiz ano passado (pois é) e que percebi que ainda não tinha partilhado aqui no blog. O do título do post foi um lift da super Maísa...que fizemos em um dos nossos crops de Curitiba. Usei retalhinhos e carimbadas em transparência.
 
 
O layout abaixo foi publicado na SNR (não lembro qual edição de 2012, hahahaah) e era sobre como usar fotos borradas para layouts. Achei a idéia boa para reflitir sobre as minhas imperfeições, escondi o journaling atrás da foto e combinei o fundo com os tons escuros da foto.
 
 
 
E por último um layout alegre feito com a maioria dos papéis da Bo Bunny, com fotinhas do Pedro quando ele tinha 4 aninhos só...com as primasem Apucarana :)
Uns blings fofos da Zva para incrementar o lo.
 


beijocas e uma boa semana para todas!

Prima BAP - May


Oi meninas,

Tudo bem? Todo mundo curtindo o feriadão? O Pedrinho foi para a praia com os avós eu eu aproveitei para colocar o scrap em dia além de curtir o marido e amigos.

Eu nunca participei do BAP da Prima, mas adorei o sketch e os layouts de inspiração e resolvi me arriscar.

No fundo usei um carimbo manuscrito da Prima com uma carimbeira azul bem clarinho, quase branco.  Apliquei rubon metálico ao redor da página toda e distressei as bordas com a minha tesoura velhinha de sempre rs.

Usei os papéis e enfeites de chipboard Prima da coleção Rosarian do ano passado além de muitas flores da Prima e um chipboard para o título de uma coleção mais antiga.


Aqui vocês podem ver os detalhes do "clustering" de enfeites que fiz na parte inferior esquerda do layout.


 
 
E vocês meninas, já participaram do BAP da Prima alguma vez?
 
Beijos e um ótimo final de semana pra todas!
 
English shorter version:
 
Hi everyone! Thanks a lot for stopping by. It's a big holiday here in Brazil so we have an extended weekend (yes!). I took the opportunity to put my scissors to work a bit more than usual - lol.
I never played along Prima BAP but i always take a peek on the gorgeous sketches and layouts created. So this time I've decided to take a chance to create a layout inspired by their sketch.
The result is above :)
 
I have used a Prima stamp to "break" a bit thr darkness from my background cardstock. All Papers used are from Prima Rosarian collection and so the majority of the chipboard embellishments. Only the one from the title that's also from Prima, but a different collection.
As you can notice on the closeup picture, I have used tons of flowers together with fussy cutted flowers + flourishes from the patterned paper and chipboard accents to create a clustering on the down/left corner of my picture.
 
Whishing you all a great weekend :)
