SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: LOVE IS IN THE AIR+ USE RED



Ciao a tutti e benvenuti alla nuova sfida settimanale di Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
San Valentino si avvicina e creare qualcosa per la persona amata è sempre un piacere. Il rosso è il più classico dei colori usati in questa festa e quindi per questa settimana il nostro tema è..... LOVE IS IN THE AIR+RED!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week the challenge is
LOVE IS IN THE AIR + USE RED
With Valentine’s Day in a few days we are getting all romantic and creating for someone we love. As red is the color of love we would like tho see a hint of that in your creation too! We will be looking forward to seeing what you create!





Chi mi conosce sa che non sono una gran romanticona ma quest'anno festeggio 25 anni con mio marito e mi è venuto dal cuore dedicargli questa tela. Ma... c'è un ma! Entrambi non amiamo molto essere fotografati,quindi ho pensato di usare un'immagine  dei Found relatives che mi piace particolarmente! Intorno alla foto ho " costruito " la mia tela! Qualche collages  con i passaggi principali ( grazie Pickmonkey!).  Ho fatto un timido tentativo di mixed media, ma ho davvero tantissimo da imparare! Direi ... tutto!

I dedicated my canvas  to my husband and me,  because 2016 means to us 25 years of love! We met in 1991 .... Neither of the two  likes to be photographed and I used for this project   a photo  from Found relatives, I did some  mixed media experiments ( I must to learn  much more in this craft zone!!!) , using Dina Wakley White Gesso  and Distress Paint, to finish  I gave a touch of red and gold (Vintage shiny foil). At last  I added a Word band, perfect to describe my feelings!
I have some pictures for you with the main  steps!





Purtroppo ho dimenticato di fotografare un passaggio: quello relativo agli angoli! Nello step mancante di immagini,   ho aggiunto, stendendo con le dita, uno strato di   Crackle Paint ROCK CANDY Distress Clear Ranger. Una volta asciutta la vernice, ho riempito le crepe con Distress paint Ground Espresso come potete vedere qui sopra!

Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of one step. It concerns corners, on which I added with fingers  a layer of Crackle Paint ROCK CANDY Distress Clear Ranger. When paint has dried, I filled the cracks with paint Distress Ground Espresso as you can see above!

Anche in questo progetto ho usato uno dei nuovi materiali presentati al CHA 2016. Ho tagliato il ticket che vedete con  il nuovo  Idea-ology TEXTILE SURFACES Paperie  che contiene 3 tipi di tessuti. 

In this project I used one of the new materials presented at CHA 2016. I cut the ticket that you see with the new Idea-ology TEXTILE SURFACES Paperie that contains three types of fabrics, obviously needed !!



Per creare ancora un pò di romanticismo ho usato lo stencil Hearts di Tim Holtz insieme alla Texture paste Transparent gloss e con la polvere Perfect pearl Biscotti.

 I've created these  hearts with Tim Holtz's stencil and  Texture paste Transparent gloss together,
I covered  the hearts with Perfect pearl powder Biscotti.


Spero che la mia tela timidamente mixed media vi sia piaciuta!

 I hope  you enjoyed my mixed media experiment!

Questa tela è uno spettacolo, un autentico masterpiece e meno male che devi impararlo il mixed media!!!
Anch'io non amo zucchero e miele e San Valentino non è tanto nelle mie corde, ma qui non c'è un solo dettaglio fuori posto, tutto equilibrato, perfetto!

Lorraine A ha detto...

Beautiful canvas Barbara, I love how you showed the step by step photos, the whole design of this is fabulous :-) As much as I love the vintage photo, I do think you should swap that out for a photo of the two of you as this is a celebration of 25 years ;-)

This is a wonderful piece! I really love how you did the background in particular and the pops of red were so refreshing. You always do such a great job of interpreting the theme. Love how you incorporated the world die, too!

Mary Elizabeth ha detto...

I hate having my picture taken as well. I love that you used some of Tim's "found relatives" as place holders for you and your husband. What a fantastic canvas. I love the texture your created in the background. Just beautiful! Then the bright pops of red and gold. That little bit of red inside the "14" is genius. Wonderful layers. Best wishes to you and your husband ... 25 years of Valentines Days and counting. What a wonderful way to celebrate with this canvas. -- Mary Elizabeth
