Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Pink Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we would like you to create something: SPOOKY
Another week with Jo aka Let's Art Journal as our Designer Spotlight! Here her fabulous Blog!



Questa settimana ho avuto un'ispirazione letteraria. Il Ritratto di Dorian Gray è un romanzo che mi è sempre piaciuto moltissimo e la storia di quest'anima oscura mi sembrava si adattasse perfettamente  al tema di oggi! 
Ho creato la mia prima Etcetera Tombstone. Ho lavorato parecchio sulle textures per il background e ho creato un punto focale che si può vedere sia chiuso che aperto, cambiando decisamente l'atmosfera del progetto. Ho pensato ad un piccolo libro che si apre rivelando l'anima di Dorian. In alto ho messo la data della prima pubblicazione del romanzo! Il set di timbri Cadaverous di Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous è veramente perfetto per questo tipo di progetti!

This week I had a literary inspiration. The Portrait of Dorian Gray is a novel that I always liked very much and the story of this dark soul seemed to fit perfectly with today's theme!
I created my first Etcetera Tombstone. I worked a lot on the textures for my background, I created a focal point that can be seen both closed and open, certainly changing the atmosphere of the project. I thought of a small book that opens revealing Dorian's secret soul. At the top I put the date of the first publication of the novel. The Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Cadaverous stamp set is really perfect for this kind of projects!

Breve tutorial su come ho lavorato per creare le textures del mio background. Ho iniziato ricoprendo la parte superiore della tag con un foglio di carta dal pad Abandoned di Tim Holtz. Per tutte le altre parti della tag ho utilizzato il mio mix di colori preferito: Black soot e Walnut stain Distress Paint. Una volta asciugato il colore,  ho steso con un pennello a ventaglio  qualche goccia di Frayed Burlap (nella foto non si vede ma è quello!)  tirando per fare qualche riga che imitasse vagamente il legno.

Short tutorial on how I worked to create the textures of my background. I started by covering the top of the tag with a piece of paper from Tim Holtz's Abandoned pad. For all the other parts of the tag I used my favorite color mix: Black soot and Walnut stain Distress Paint. Once the color had dried, I spread a few drops of Frayed Burlap with a fan-shaped brush (you can't see in the picture but that's it!) Pulling to make a few lines that vaguely imitated the wood.


Ho preso una cornice di Idea-ology e ho iniziato passando con una lima a grana grossa tutti i bordi. Poi ho steso Frayed Burlap Distress Paint a random con le dita, lasciando qualche punto non coperto dal colore. Sugli spazi liberi dall'acrilico ho utilizzato Distress Crackle paint Clear Rock Candy per formare una rete di piccolissime crepe. Ho riempito le crepe con Distress Crayon Tarnished Brass togliendo l'eccesso con una salvietta. Per finire ho passato sui bordi Forest Moss Distress Crayon.

I took a frame of Idea-ology and I started to distress the edges with a  a coarse file. Then I spread Frayed Burlap Distress Paint at random with my fingers, leaving some points not covered by the color. On  free spaces I used Distress Crackle paint Clear Rock Candy to form a network of tiny cracks. I filled the cracks with Distress Crayon Tarnished Brass by removing the excess with a baby wipe. Finally I used Forest Moss Distress Crayon on the edges of the frame.



La Grit Paste ha una consistenza favolosa, una volta asciutta è rigida e granulosa e colorata con spray e Crayons  diventa davvero bellissima! Io l'ho stesa a random con le dita sulla tag e poi l'ho utilizzata insieme allo stencil Decayed di Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. Per colorare ho usato Distress Oxides Pumice stone , Distress paint Frayed Burlap e vari Crayons: Frayed urlap, Forest Moss, Walnut stain e un tocco più chiaro di Peeled paint.
Il background è finito! 
Come sempre eccovi i dettagli!

The Grit Paste has a fabulous consistency, once dry it is stiff and grainy and colored with spray and Crayons becomes really beautiful! I stretched it randomly with my fingers on the tag and then used it together with the Decayed stencil by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. For coloring I used Distress Oxides Pumice stone, Distress paint Frayed Burlap and various Crayons: Frayed urlap, Forest Moss, Walnut stain and a lighter touch of Peeled paint.
The background is over!
