SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: SPRITZ AND SPRAY!


Ciao a tutti! Settimana di puro divertimento per noi di Simon Says Monday Challenge Blog: SPRITZ AND SPRAY è il nostro tema!
Credo non ci sia bisogno di aggiungere nulla se non che avete a disposizione una quantità enorme di prodotti tra cui scegliere! Gli sprays sono fantastici, versatili e molto divertenti da usare!

Hi to everyone! This week we have a very fun theme on Simon Says Monday Challenge Blog: SPRITZ AND SPRAY! There are so many sprays available from lots of different manufacturers, but you can also make your own and tailor make the colors to suit your project! We will be looking forward to seeing what you decide to use!

Adoro questo challenge, adoro i colori vivaci, adoro gli sprays! I  Distress sprays sono i miei preferiti per la loro caratteristica di reagire all'acqua!
Per il mio progetto ho creato uno sfondo arcobaleno in mezzo al grigio della mia tela! Credo assolutamente nella magia e nell'effetto terapeutico del colore!

I absolutely love this challenge! Sprays are  some of my favourite products and I adore to work with them! I had fun coloring a rainbow with Distress Sprays to surround the globe and to play with stencils and stamps, creating a  contrast with gray color to the external of my canvas. I believe in the magic of colors!







Ho preparato  per voi  un piccolo tutorial!

I made for you a little tutorial!


Primo passo: scegliere i colori, spruzzarli sul tappetino per creare un arcobaleno e spruzzare con poca acqua il cartoncino da acquerello che userete.
Fatto questo appoggiate senza premere troppo e molto velocemente il vostro cartoncino, giratelo e asciugate subito con la heat gun. L'arcobaleno è fatto! Fate questa operazione veramente molto in fretta perchè altrimenti i colori si mischiano e ne esce una cosa inguardabile! Esperienza personale!

First step: I chose the colors to use, I misted my sprays to create a rainbow and I dampened with a few  drops of water my Watercolor cardstock.
After this I have placed the card on the colors (without pressing too much) and behold the magic: a rainbow!
This  step  should be done very quickly,  immediately  you must be used  the heat gun to capture the colors. If you go slow you risk to mix too much  the colors, creating an  undefined shade!


Secondo passo: preparare la tela che misura 18 x 24 ( 7 x 9,5 inch ) . Stendo il solito strato di gesso bianco, poi timbro con Versamark e polvere clear con uno sfondo. Io ho scelto questo a quadretti piccoli di Tim Holtz.  E poi mi sono creata uno spray con i Distress paint.  Volevo provare a spruzzare un tipo di colore che attecchisse sul gesso e con i Distress sprays questo è un pochino più complicato. I Distress paints invece mi sembravano perfetti ma sono troppo densi da spruzzare. Quindi ho fatto questo esperimento e ho mischiato qualche goccia d'acqua al mio Distress paint Hicory smoke e ho spruzzato! Quello che volevo!

Second step: prepare the canvas  18 x 24 (7 x 9.5 inch). As  usual I've spread a layer of white gesso.
I stamp my background with Versamark and clear embossing powder to create resist effect.
I've created my own spray with  Hickory smoke Distress paint mixed with water. This kind of spray adhere so well to my  background!


Per creare un pò di movimento nel grigio ho aumentato pian piano la dose di nero.  Per le macchie ho usato uno dei miei stencil preferiti di Tim Holtz insieme alla Texture paste colorata con  Black soot e Hickory smoke.

Once all has dried , I stenciled  my canvas  with texture paste tinted with  Black soot Distress paint.


Con la texture paste colorata ho rifinito anche l'esterno della tela, completando con un tissue tape a zig zag.

 I finished external of the canvas with the same tinted Texture paste and I completed with a tissue tape.

Adoro la frase che ho scelto! E' bellissima e ho potuto "illustrarla" grazie a due fustelle Tim Holtz/Sizzix  entrambe eccezionali: il globo e la parola Believe.  Quando l'ho ricevuta in occasione dell'evento Holiday inspiration  series sul blog di Tim, ho pensato che era perfetta per il momento. Non riuscivo a pensare ad un utilizzo differente ... invece ne ha eccome di utilizzi differenti! Spero che questo vi ispiri! 
Per il globo ho usato Metallic Core'dinations Silver stropicciato e colorato con la tecnica della tag di Gennaio 2016, Industrious metal. 
Come sempre ora tocca a voi!

I adore the quote that I have chosen!  I've "illustrated" this quote with two fantastic dies by  Tim Holtz / Sizzix: the Globe and the word Believe. When I received the die "Believe"  for the event Holiday inspiration series on Tim's blog, I thought it was perfect for the moment. I couldn't think about a different use ... but it can be utilized  in many  different ways! I hope this will inspire you!
To cut the globe  I've used Core'dinations Silver Metallic crumpled and stained with the technique of January 2016, Industrious metal.
So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
