SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: STENCIL IT!!!





Ciao a tutti!  Prima di cominciare  vi ricordo che abbiamo un DT call aperto a tutti coloro che possiedono un blog , il DT call chiude  Martedì 19 Gennaio, 9 am EST. Per tutti i dettagli andate QUI !
Hello everyone! Before starting I remind you that we have a DT call open to anyone with a blog. DT call closes Tuesday, January 19, 9 am EST. For full details go HERE!

Secondo challenge di quest'anno: STENCIL IT! Non credo abbiate bisogno di spiegazioni su come affrontare la sfida!  C'e' da divertirsi! Questa settimana grazie all'argomento proposto da Simon Monday Challenge Blog, ho voluto liberare un pochino la mente e lasciare andare le mani e la fantasia! Il mio spirito Steampunk ha preso il sopravvento e viste le novità del CHA di Tim so che mi divertirò tutto l'anno! Il mio progetto è un piccolo quadernino che ho alterato per annotare le idee che mi vengono spesso all'improvviso! E che di solito... dimentico!

This week the challenge is: STENCIL IT!!!
There are so many fabulous stencils available right now and there are so many techniques you can use with them. It is fun to ink, spray or use embossing paste, lots of options and the end result is always a little bit unpredictable. It is a fabulous way to create your own backgrounds, or the designs can be the focus of attention. Of course you can always create your own stencils, whatever you decide to do we will be looking forward to seeing what you create.
Sometimes I have an idea for my projects:  details, a particular way of binding, a technique ... To remind these ideas, I decided to alter a small notebook  with Distress paints and stencils! A touch of metal and a beautiful image from  "Found relavitives" by Tim Holtz made my work  perfect for my creative notes!


Ho alterato un piccolo notes, l'ho rivestito con Tim Holtz Idea-ology POSTALE Tissue Wrap Paper e gesso, poi dipinto con Distress paint Cracked Pistachio e  Dried Marigold. E fin qui tutto normale... poi lo spirito Steampunk si è impadronito di me e ho cominciato con lo stencil Tim Holtz Layering Stencil TYPO  usato in modo tradizionale con Texture paste mischiata a Distress paint Pumice tone.
Gli ingranaggi sono un vecchio stencil The Crafter Workshop usato come timbro, nel senso che ho inchiostrato lo stencil col Versamark , timbrato e cosparso di un mix di polveri da embossing! Il risultato è sufficientemente sporco e imperfetto, proprio come lo volevo! Qualche tocco di metallo, una bella immagine ed è finito!
Particolari!

Before  to start my project I covered the notes with Tim Holtz Idea-ology POSTALE Tissue Wrap Paper. After,  I  altered it  with gesso and Distress paints. Once dry, I used the stencil Tim Holtz Layering Stencil TYPO   in a traditional way, with texture paste. At this point the spirit Steampunk has taken over! The gears are  stamped with a stencil. Yes,  I used a stencil as a stamp! I inked the stencil with Versamark, stamped and sprinkled with a mix of  embossing powders. Metal embellishments and a beautiful vintage image  complete the work!

Per la spina del quaderno ho usato il Metallic cardstock Kraft core nel colore bronzo, stropicciandolo e sporcandolo con i Distress paints.
For the spine of my notes I cut and distressed a piece of Metallic Cardstock Core'dinations!
