Con immenso piacere oggi vi presento un'altra designer italiana che ci terrà compagnia per tutto Aprile come Designer Spotlight, Sabrina meglio conosciuta come La Sab, QUI il suo veramente fantastico Blog It's time to Create Mixed media Corner. 

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Play With Paint Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to 
Don’t Be Fooled Be Foiled!
As this is April Fools Day we thought we would have some fun with a play on words! Foiling is very ‘en trend’ at the moment and there are so many texchniques that we can use to apply foil to our creations!
As it is the first week of the month we are showcasing a particular company and this week we are all using some fabulous Gina K Designs Products!
This week we are welcoming the super talented Sabrina aka It’s Time To Create-My Mixed Media Corner 


Lo so... questo lavoro è un pochino pazzo....ho visto lo stencil con le onde Making Waves di Gina K Designs e subito ho pensato di abbinarci i due timbri di Tim Holtz Stampoers Anonymous The Professor e la piovra di Sea Life!
Ho pensato che il sentiment Creativity takes courage fosse perfetto perchè in effetti l'abbinamento è azzardato!
Qualche parola su come l'ho realizzato.
Ho iniziato con il solito strato di gesso steso però con una spatolina che mi creasse già una live texture.
Su metà della tela che misura 15 x 15 cm ( 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch)  ho usato lo stencil Making Waves insieme a Nuvo expanding Mousse... adoro questa pasta. Quando la scaldi crea una texture spettacolare che puoi colorare come vuoi o lasciarla nel colore originale. Devo ringraziare la mia compagna di squadra Macarena per avermi fatto conoscere questa Mousse!

I know ... this job is a little crazy .... I saw Making  Waves Stencil  by Gina K Designs and immediately I thought to combine two Tim's stamps: The Professor and the octopus by  Sea Life set!
I thought the Creativity takes courage sentiment was perfect because in fact the combination I made today is a little bit ... risky!
A few words about how I created this canvas.
I started with the usual layer of white gesso spread with a spatula that already created a slight texture.
On half of the canvas measuring 15 x 15 cm (5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch) I used  Making Waves by Gina K Designs together with Nuvo expanding Mousse ... I love this Mousse. When you heat it creates a spectacular texture that you can color as you like or leave it in the original color. I have to thank my lovely teamie Macarena for this!



Ho utilizzato Distress Crayons in 3 tonalità di azzurro/verde e ho aggunto lo stencil Bubble con Texture transparent Gloss. Asciugata kla Texture paste gloss ho passato sopra per evidenziare il disegno Picket fence Distress crayons. Ho stampato su Idea-ology Plain Collage Paper la piovra e The Professor e ho evidenziato alcuni particolari con Uniball signo gel white.

I used Distress Crayons in 3 shades of blue / green and I added  Tim Holtz Bubbles stencil with Texture transparent Gloss. Once Texture paste dried I used Picket fence Distress Crayns over the bubbles. I stamped Octopus and The Professor on Idea-ology Plain Collage Paper and highlighted some details with Uniball Signo gel white pen



Il mio cuore preferito.... Faceted heart di Tim Holtz non poteva assolutamente mancare!

My favorite heart ... Tim Holtz's Faceted heart couldn't miss it!



Nella foto sopra  si vede bene dove ho utilizzato il foil Frozen Shiny Ranger: sopra la texture create con la Expanding mousse in modo da rendere più brillante il lavoro. Ho rifinito con Idea ology Chatter design Tape.

In the picture above you can clearly see where I used  Frozen Shiny Ranger foil: over the texture created with the Expanding mousse so as to make the work more brilliant. I finished with a Idea ology Chatter design Tape.
