SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE THANKS/THANKSGIVING


Ciao a tutti! Oggi Simon says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog vi proprone come argomento Thanks / Thanksgiving! Anche se è una festa che si celebra negli Stati Uniti credo che tutti noi possiamo trovare qualcosa per cui essere grati... per cui aspettiamo le vostre ispirazioni!
Anche oggi Jo aka Let’s Art Journal è insieme a noi come Designer Spotlight per il mese di Novembre! QUI potete vedere il suo bellissimo BLOG!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Make Your Own Background Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to Thanks/Thanksgiving
As we are celebrating Thanksgiving here in the US on November 22nd we thought it would be nice to have a challenge dedicated to being thankful!
Also today Jo aka Let's Art Journal is with us as a Designer Spotlight for the month of November! HERE you can see his beautiful BLOG!



Avevo davvero voglia di usare queste splendide foglie di Tim Holtz! Ho iniziato la mia Etcetera tag stendendo uno strato di gesso. Ho utilizzato un cartoncino bianco  per tagliare le Skeleton leaves, due per ciascun tipo.

I really wanted to use these beautiful leaves of Tim Holtz! I started my Etcetera tag by spreading a layer of white gesso. I used a white cardstock to cut Skeleton leaves, two for each type.


Ho incollato le foglie in doppio strato ( ecco perchè ne ho tagliate due per ciascun tipo!)  creando il design dello sfondo. A questo punto ho scelto due Infusions di Paper Artsy,  Rusty car e Black knight, li ho preparati senza mischiarli  tra loro e con il pennello li ho usati per colorare la tag.
All'inizio vi sembrerà che il colore non resti attaccato al gesso, ma se asciugate con Heat tool appena steso vedrete che riuscirete a "bloccarlo" sulla vostra tag.

I glued the leaves in a double layer (that's why I cut two of them for each type!) to create the background design. At this point I chose two Paper Artsy Infusions , Rusty car and Black knight, I prepared them  without mixing together, I used them with a brush  to color the tag.
At first you can think  that the color does not remain attached to the gesso, but if you dry it  with Heat tool  you will see that you can "block" it on your tag..


Divertimento assoluto con i Distress Crayons! Io li adoro perchè li stendo con le dita, cosa che mi mi piace moltissimo fare!

I had fun with the Distress Crayons! I love them because I use them with my fingers, which I really like doing!



Per completare la tag le Paper Dolls sono come sempre perfette!

To complòete my tag Paper Dolls are always perfect!



La base su cui è incollata la parola Thanks è tagliata con la fustella Plank e la fustella Lumber per creare l'effetto legno.

The base on which the word Thanks is glued is cut with  Plank die and  Lumber 3D embossing folder to create the wood effect.


Ho scelto tutti colori tipici di questa stagione inserendo anche un tocco di Seedless preserve che  vivacizza la tipica palette autunnale fatta di verdi gialli e marroni.

I have chosen all the typical colors of this season, adding a touch of Seedless preserve that livens up the  autumn palette made of yellow and brown greens.


Spero vi sia piaciuta!
Hope you liked it!

What a super fun way to use the skeleton leaves--they remind me of jewels. Your tag is a joyful and charming creation (and made me smile for the day).
