Ciao a tutti! Oggi parliamo di desideri! Il nostro tema questa settimana vi lascia liberi di esprimere la parola desiderio nel modo che preferite: potete spaziare dalla card di compleanno fino a quello che desiderate  per la vostra vita , per i vostri viaggi e così via! Sul nostro blog troverete un sacco di ispirazioni!
Anche oggi abbiamo come Designer Spotlight Kassa Delight in the detail che oramai conoscete, se non l'avete ancora fatto andate a sbirciare i suoi lavori: sono fantastici!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
MAKE A WISH is our theme for this week!
We usually  ’Make A Wish’ before blowing out the birthday candles, but you could create something with a wish in mind. I wish I was lying on a beach listening to the waves and reading a good book. What is YOUR wish? We will look forward to seeing what you make!  Our Designer Spotlight all along this month is Kassa aka Delight in the detail, check out her wonderful blog!

Ho interpretato questa sfida in modo personale attraverso questa foto presa dai  Found Relatives,  per far capire quanto è importante secondo me mantenere la stessa curiosità e la stessa voglia di desiderare che hanno i bambini!

I interpreted this challenge in a very personal way, I wanted to express something that is very important for me: keep the same curiosity and the same wishes that  all kids of the world have!  To make  this I used one of the photos from Found Relatives  Portraits and I created a canvas using Tim Holtz Idea-ology FRAMED PANEL . For my background Tim Holtz Sizzix CROSSHATCH Frameworks cut on  Core'dinations Metallic Cardstock  painted with Alcohol Inks lights my work. To complete the dreamy atmosphere I used stars and butterflies in subtle colors.

Short tutorial

Primo step : preparazione della tela con uno strato di gesso  e colorazione con Distress paint e Distress stain Tumbled Glass.
First step: preparing the canvas with a layer of  White gesso and coloring with Tumbled Glass Distress Paint and Distress spray.

Secondo step isolare questi colori con il Gesso Clear e continuare con un altro strato di Distress Spray Tattered rose e con qualche tratto verticale con Distress Crayons Antique Linen.  Distress ink Pad Picket fence e Distress crayons bianco  con lo stencil per finire lo sfondo e sigillare tutto con Ranger Medium Matte ( prima foto delle prossime!).
Second step: to isolate these colors with Gesso  Clear and continue with another layer of  Tattered rose Distress spray and a few strokes with Antique Linen Distress Crayons.  Picket fence  Distress ink pad and Distress crayon to finish the background  with a stencil. At this point you seal  all  with Ranger Medium Matte (first photo of the next bunch!).

Foil adesivo Ranger per tagliare la cornice ovale , embossata e colorata con una serie di alcohol inks. Per dare spessore ne ho tagliata un'altra uguale su cartoncino e tra le due ho inserito un foglio di Plain Tissue tape . Mi piaceva l'idea di mostrare velatamente la parte sottostante. Ultima foto ho timbrato le nuove etichette di Tim ( set super utile!) su un ritaglio di carta.

I cut  the frame on Ranger METAL FOIL TAPE SHEETS, embossed and colored  it with some alcohol inks. To give depth,  I cut the same frame  on cardstock and between the two I put a layer of  Plain Tissue wrap. I liked the idea of showing the underside subtly. Last picture:  I stamped the new Tim's Label (set super useful!) on a scrap of paper.

La cornice  esterna l'ho preparata stendendo un primo strato di Distress Paint Ground Espresso e un secondo ( ovviamente una volta asciugato perfettamente il primo) di Acrylic Paint Dabber oro. Sui lati ho messo un giro di Washi tape di Tim.

I colored  the wood frame spreading a  first layer of  Ground Espresso  Distress paint and a second layer of Gold Metallic  Paint Dabber. On the outlines  I used Tim Holtz's Tissue tape.

Per completare ho tagliato due pezzi di Tim Holtz Core'dinations KRAFT CORE METALLIC  nel colore oro, come sempre stropicciati perchè a me piacciono un sacco usati in questo modo!

To complete my project  I cut two pieces of Tim Holtz Core'dinations KRAFT CORE METALLIC gold, as always wrinkled because I like a lot used in this way!
