My New Camera Scrapbook Page Luciana Warnowski Class Prima May PPP and Sketchabilities By Djana Venolia

Yesterday I watched Luciana Warnowski's online class and what an inspiration! Luciana entered her layout in a Sketchabilities Challenge (Sketch #139) and as well myself :-)

With this layout I am also entering Prima's May Challenge PPP (Prima Product Pick)

Now, let's get into the details...
I had printed a few new photos from the weekend when I received a camera as my birthday gift. I really wanted that camera (a mirrorless Sony) and have been already taking pictures with it. 
Now I can share with you my new page and camera :-)

And there is more... Because I decided to twist Luciana's technique a little bit using different materials to make the background, I took some pictures of my process to make a step by step for you to follow.
The material used to make this layout was from February Special Delivery by Prima Marketing. Every month is a new fun kit. We also offer thekits in our store.

Step By Step:
First I changed my background material from spray to Ranger Distress Paint although I kept the pallet the same. I also gesso the page to create a base.

Then I sprinkle some diluted Distress Paint and Ink Spray.

I got one wood icons painted and sprinkled some Prima Marketing Glass Gliter,

Now, let's go to some spraying... New Prima Marketing Color Bloom Yellow Mustard.

And to not loose my trademark I die-cut an aluminum seal using a new (and amazing) Spellbinders die cut.

The followed sketch had two parts with some the same elements which I particularly like because it unites the layout. I used the aluminum cut out on the left and the left over on the right. I also used the butterfly in both sides and a stamp on the left to match the sketch.

To create my cluster I used Prima Marketing Trim and some other items from the Special Delivery Kit: Sticker, ATCs and Swirls.

I used three sizes of flowers and another stamp to make it up for the stitch from the sketch.

I also used the Prima Marketing 6"x6" Paper Pad to create some tags.

To have my title stand up more I sprayed the Adhesive with Color Bloom.

The inkpade I used in all my stamping was Black Archival Ink by Ranger.

After my elements were all glued down I decided to add some blue Prima Marketing Glass Beads and Micro Beads that I just LOVE so much to use it.


And some more detailed images using my new camera :-)

Micro focus... To show the embossed Clear Scraps tag distressed with Alcohol Ink.

May Charity Wings Scrapbook Club @Mortino YMCA by Nature to Body

One more Scrapbook Club done and what a wonderful time we had. 

We used BoBunny papers to create our base. The layout used here is also a BoBunny inspiration from the Forever Young collection. 

And I had an extra help from Linda!

Michael loved the new glue dots made from ScraPerfect Beat Glue Ever.

He could work more independently and embellished his page all by himself! What a great accomplishment. And I can't go on without saying thank you Amy from ScraPerfect for your generous donations and sincere support. 

And one of the leaders screamed how much she loves the Best Glue Ever! Fun, fun, fun!!!

Until next month with one more Scrapbook Club at Mottino YMCA.

2015 - Aula de Scrapbook - Art Journal

We made an Art Journal page during our class. My intention is not to show you my feeling and emotions which is the purpose of an art journal, rather the style and creative process. Art journals are a great way to test new techniques and be bold. Collage, paints, textures, drawings. Try it all together. That is what I did :-)
Let's go to the pictures...
The two-pages together back in the binder. 

I added some more rub ons because I thought my page needed more black. 

I also added one more golden wood butterfly and some blings on the butterfly on the right side. More black to my page. 

Here you can see the shimmer. 

I added a button and flower on the lower side of the left page. 

A close out of the texture on the chipboard. 

I "fixed" a couple of things after the class had finished. First I covered the extra black gesso that spilled from the stencil. That occurred because the background was very bulky and had room to the gesso travel behind. I am obsessed with Micro beads and want to use them in every project I put my hands on. This was no difference and the combination made a special effect. I used Best Glue Ever to hold my beads. 

And who said we can't use our fingers to paint??? Nobody, right! So I used mine to add a mix of Color Bloom and Mica Powder. I choose Color Bloom other than water because Color Bloom is more stick. Using my finger I could control better the intensity since I want just a vintage look. 

During the class I noticed someone amazement when I said I was going to wash my stamp since I had forgotten to clean after use, well stamps are made out rubber and it is perfectly ok to wash with cold water and mild soap. 

But instead of air drying I used a cloth to dry right a way. My stamp now is clean and ok to use. 

Now the recorded video-class:
