Hi my friends,
This time I wanted to do something about my family and me.
As many of you know, I was born and raised in Chile. My father came here escaping from the World War II, he was Romanian and my mother's parents came from Poland. At that time seems South America was like the actual "American Dream" for people who was scared about their future in Europe.
In this spread, I wanted to represent both worlds (Europe and South America) pointing the Countries and making marks on the journey my ancestors had to go across.
In this VIDEO, I will show you the process of making these pages.
Of course I used Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to give them a vintage look.
I have been wanting to write this blog post for months.
My daughters Daniela and Valentina started a Website (English and Spanish) NO ENNUI (no boredom) . This site will guide you through the travel industry, fashion, gastronomy,beauty, cooking, crafts and much more.
They have made a deep research on these topics and due to their activities and multiple travels, they are also able to mix the investigation with real experiences.
I like to try new things and this time I'm loving to sew into my pages. I used a glassine bag where I stored the "look at this" card, then I sewed all together and attached it to the paper. I also used and painted cheesecloth with the gorgeous Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and Color Shots to embellish the page. I covered the frame with washi tape and decorated it with words, then stamped a little and added metal accents.
I did another layout for the color challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang.
Some of the rules:
Here is our challenge for February! This challenge is valid on blog posts dated February 1st, 2014- February 28th, 2014
I also used Poinsettia Red Gold shot with a water brush
This month's colors are really pretty, even they are not my colors (you know I LOVE brights!), so I went a little crazy and totally out of the box with flowers, glitter and many embellies that are hard for me to use.
So here is my layout for this month. This photo was taken on Daniela's wedding day and I find it super sweet with her sister kissing her. You can't really tell but Valentina's dress matches the colors of some of the flowers.
From the fabulous Totally 80's new set I used
From the awesome Industrial Chic Spray Set
I'm guest designing at Scrap FX blog. Loved their chipboards, stencils and stamps!!
These are the projects I created for them:
My daughter Daniela got married on April and believe it or not, this is the first canvas/layout I make of her as a bride. I saved a few pieces of her wedding dress and applied them into the canvas.
She looked so beautiful!!!!
So here is the finished canvas. Some of the photos are very dark and not represent the colors IRL.
Here are some photos of my process
