Spiegelmom Scraps SCRAP IT OFF blog hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the SpiegelMom Scraps SCRAP IT OFF Anniversary & Design Team reveal blog hop!  
Team gathered in this fantastic event is varied and super creative, visiting each of our blog and giving your attention to our projects I am sure that you will so much inspiration and a beautiful colorful should have arrived here from Christy Harriman .  

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this event!  Jody is super excited to reveal the new Design Team, three new sequin mixes, a FREE cut file designed by one of the fabulous new Sparklers and prizes! So awesome!  If you’re just joining me here on my blog, be sure to check out the line up and all the other goodies over at the SpiegelMom Scraps blog here .

My project for this special event is a mini canvas mixed media.

I painted the white canvas with acrylic colors, black and blue, then I used two different Shimmerz paint, Sea U in the morning and Dreamscicle, with two different stencils. I splashed on white paint and three different LuminArte Primary Element. Almost simulating color sketches I used three different mix of sequins (Lilac Twinkle, Believe in You and A Day in the Woods), distributing here and there with a fake randomness. I really like mixing paint and sequins because I can give more three-dimensional and brightness to the project.
I then blended lace, some chipboard from 7Dots Studio, an handmade flair that I paint with Primary Elements and two adorable mini clothespins.

Sparklers DT: Album/Journal cover

The project for today blog post on Spiegelmomscrap blog it’s the cover of an album / journal on which I am working. The cover is completely handmade made with recovery cardboard  and cotton fabric. Once I built the cover I painted, printed and embellished it with stencils and different Shimmerz  colors. The result is very colorful and sparkling, thanks to the sequins that I put here and there to give light points. To complete the cover instead I used embellishments (doily, shipping tags, mini Clothspins, die cut) from the neutral color, so the cover did not appear too heavy. I have a lot of fun doing it.

Sparklers DT: Star tags

I made a set of three mini shipping tags.

I colored with black gesso the tag, once dry I used Shimmerz paste through a stencil. With a punch in a star shape I cut a piece of square  pattern paper to which I added a little thick: inside the star-shaped hole I "designed" with glue a star making to join the tiny gold sequins. To accentuate this sparkling point I created a circular shape with the twine wrapping it several times.Then I added the title, some other tiny gold sequins and beautiful silvery starlets.

These tags are very simple and very easy to make but very bright for sure.
