SIMON SAYS MONDAY CHALLENGE: USE PATTERNED PAPERS!


Ciao a tutti!!!! Oggi per solleticare la vostra fantasia Simon Says Monday Challenge Blog vi propone di usare nel vostro progetto PATTERNED PAPERS! Sicuramente tutti siete assolutamente forniti di questo materiale! So con certezza che ci stupirete con la vostra creatività! Se volete ispirarvi potete vedere tutti i lavori del nostro Design Team e quello della nostra ospite del mese Alison Bomber aka Words and Pictures! 

Hi friends! This week the challenge is : USE PATTERNED PAPERS!
With all of the background stamps, stencils and paints out there patterned papers have been taking a back seat, especially in the word of mixed media, so we thought it was about time we included them in our projects!
This is the third week for Alison Bomber aka Words and Pictures as our Designer Spotlight for this month! Here  you find her wonderful blog!



Incredibilmente ho scelto di fare un progetto abbastanza semplice, ho voluto mettere in risalto la raffinatezza di questa carta dalla collezione Dapper di Tim Holtz. Il blu è insieme al verde il mio colore preferito in tutte le sue sfumature e questo punto di blu mi affascina particolarmente perchè non è solo blu , ha anche un puntino di viola e di grigio! Intorno a questa carta ho costruito tutto il lavoro, usando un solo foglio avanti e retro! Essendo due fantasie contrastanti una chiara e una scura erano perfette per lavorare insieme con l'idea che avevo in testa! Il tema dell'eleganza si sposa benissimo con la fustella Dapper!

Blue is definitely, next to the green, one of my favorite colors! This color  is for me synonymous of  elegance and this word perfectly matches with  Dapper Paper Stash by Tim Holtz.  I chose to cover  a Mini clipboard and I 've played with these patterned papers, Stitched Ovals  and  Dapper die !  To  make contrast with blue shade  I used Core'dinations Kraft core Metallic and Nostalgic Collection : they are perfect! Distress crayons  in various colors are so  incredible to make look older the clip at the top and I love use them in this way too!! The buttons are  absolutely  vintage, directly from my  Mom's sewing  box !


Per alterare la clip in alto ho usato i Distress Crayons, la confezione con i neutri! Mi piacciono tantissimo sul metallo, riescono a dare a questo materiale un'aspetto davvero antico e usurato!

To alter the metal clip on the top I used Distress Crayons, neutral shades! They really works so well to give this aspect really vintage and worn !





Sono partita rivestendo Idea-ology Mini clipboard con la carta più scura e lavorando i bordi con Distress ink pad Walnut stain e Distress crayon nella stessa tonalità.
Con le fustelle ovali con la finta cucitura ho preparato il focus del progetto. Un trucchetto che uso in questi casi è preparare una base molto più grande dove fustellare la parte centrale. Poi con la fustella ovale che è aperta riesco a determinare bene la posizioni e centrarla! Le fustelle sottili non tagliano perfettamente il cartoncino da chipboard, ma se usate quello che trovate nel retro degli album di fogli da acquarello o il grungeboard ( che sono un pochino più sottili) riuscite a fare un taglio non perfetto ma molto accentuato, potete rifinire con le forbici perchè la sagoma si vede benissimo è solo questione di ripassarla. Ovviamente solo con fustelle dalla forma più che semplice come queste! Di queste fustelle ovali adoro la finta cucitura! Ho eveidenziato sia i bordi che le cuciture con Distress ink pad sempre Walnut stain. Il mio gentiluomo invece ha due colori: il cartoncino Core'dinations metallic nel colore Bronzo e il mio colore preferito quel nero/marrone della collezione Nostalgic.


I started covering Idea-ology Mini clipboard with darker paper highlighting and aging the edges with Distress ink pad Walnut stain and Distress crayon in the same color.
 I prepared the focus of the project with STITCHED OVALS Thinlits Die . In these cases I use a trick: I  prepare a much larger base where I cut the central part ( Dapper die in this project). In this way  I can well determine the  center  because Oval die is open at the center! Thinlits doesn't  cut the  chipboard, but if you use the grungeboard, you can  make a cut, not perfect, but very accentuated. Then you can finish with scissors because the shape looks very good, it is only a matter of pass it with scissors.. Obviously only if your dies have a simple shape!  I love so much the faux stitching in these dies and  I highlighted them with  Distress ink pad Walnut stain. My gentleman was  cut in two colors: Card stock Core'dinations in bronze metallic color and my favorite color that black / brown Nostalgic collection.




Vi saluto dicendo che i bottoni che ho usato fanno parte della mia collezione Very Vintage che viene direttamente dalla scatola del cucito di mia madre!
Spero vi sia piaciuto!
