This is the project I made this month for Scrapiniec : I recycled the frame of a canvas bought because I liked the frame shape.. lol. So for this time I decided to make a mixed media frame.
Before proceeding, I have created the structure on which to base all the elements of the composition. To do this I used the wooden sticks of ice cream ..... gotta sacrifice !!!!
The next step was to lay a layer of white gesso: once dry, I lay with the spatula an irregular layer of crackle medium, after which I went to color using watercolors. Some random stamps with black Archival ink and the frame is ready to be enriched with several small details.
I placed a large fabric flower at the center of the constructed structure, placing it on a cotton laces, white and beige, and scrap of tulle.
To enrich and enhance my project I have inserted here and there the beautiful Scrapiniec chipboards (at the end of the post the link to find them) that add value to each project and that now I have to admit they have become indispensable: they are elegant, refined and fit to every need.
I hope this alternative frame to expose our memories will please you. Good creativity at all and see you soon!

Hello to all,,, Lea here for my first post as Guest Design Team member and it's really an honour to me.
I have discovered a brand that I just loved for its style, its original design: Gummiapan welcome to my 'never without'. I made a tag-looking hyper coloured: I first created the base using black gesso, once dry I used different textures pastes and a bit of shimmer with golden glitter. I applied a piece of white lace and I cut twice with integrated rectangles die. One of which I placed above the lace.
After that I enriched further texture adding large grains (which I illuminated by applying with the tip of a brush just tipped with shimmer cream, green and orange) and light violet beads.
In the centre I placed another smaller black tag: I added a little thick to give a 3d effect to the composition. Finally I used another beautiful set from Gummiapan, Snurrig Blomma dies, the leaf was coloured with watercolor and flower, which I cut twice and one of two I made smaller, I splashed with watercolor too. I also added another flower from the Crassula set (only one smaller).
Colourful wires and a chipboard : the tag is done, indeed no ... it was missing something so I stamped the beautiful feather by Gummiapan, with violet ink, I divided it into two and placed so that it appears below the smaller tag ...
I hope this project will stimulate you to experience and play with everything on your craft table. xoxo

my monthly project this time concerns a set of four ATCs: until a long time ago creating a card or something was almost like the writer's block, then for personal challenge I started to realize ATCs and how by magic everything has become simpler.
To create this set I created the background with black gesso and then used stencils texture pastes and mousses, some sketches of liquid chalk and watercolor, I then superimposed various type of lace, twisted some twine to form a circular shape and in the middle I inserted the delicate chipboards from Scrapiniec shop.
