Birthday girl

A while ago I've been asked to create an 18th birthday card for a sweet and sensitive girl. And what stamp to use other than this sweet Tiddly Inks stamp?
Acu ceva vreme am fost rugata sa creez o felicitare pentru aniversarea de 18 ani a unei domnisoare draguta si sensibila. Si ce alta stampila as fi putut folosi decat aceasta de la Tiddly Inks?

Thanks for stopping by!
Multumesc de vizita!

Mixed Media on Canvas

Today I wanna show you a nice little canvas art that I did in March. I could not present it to you earlier but here it is now.

Azi vreau sa va prezint un tablouas pe care l-am facut in martie. Nu l-am putut prezenta mai repede dar uitati-l aici acum.
For the background I used Prima Marketing paper that I transferred it to the canvas using a kind of mod podge. For transferring patterned paper onto canvas you have multiple choices. There is a special medium for transfer or you can use other mediums that have the ability to stick but are not affected by water. I got inspired by this tutorial on youtube. They also presented the full technique there. After the background was transferred on the canvas, I continued my work with stamping various Unity Stamps on the background and adhering all the flowers and metal pieces. Than I covered them with gesso (love this gesso medium!).

Pentru fundal am folosit hartie de la Prima Marketing pe care am transferat-o pe panza folosind lac pentru decupaj. Pentru a transfera imagini pe panza exista o varietate de posibilitati. Exista lac special pentru transfer sau poti sa folosesti orice medium ce are abilitatea de a lipi dar nu e afectat de apa. Pe mine m-a inspirat acest tutorial de pe youtube. Se prezinta in tutorial tehnica de trasfer pas cu pas. Dupa ce fundalul a fost transferat complet pe panza, am continuat prin a stampila diferite stampile de la Unity pe fundal si prin a lipi florile si piesele metalice. Apoi am acoperit cu un strat de gesso (iubesc acest medium!).

Further down you have close-ups with the canvas. The photos are made with various lenses and from various angels.

In contiunare aveti detalii cu panza. Fotografiile sunt facute cu obiective diferite si din unghiuri diferite.

 


And since you got to the end let me tell you that this canvas is about me and my hobbies: paper crafting, experimenting new techniques, bike riding and of course, flowers.

Si acum ca ati ajuns la final sa stiti ca acesta panza este despre mine si despre pasiunile mele: bricolatul, experimentarea a noi tehnici, plimbarile cu bicicleta si desigur, florile.

Multumesc pentru vizita!

Tiddly Inks Design Team Call

Have you heard the news? Tiddly Inks is having a Design Team call! And I decided to take part so now I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Ati auzit vestea? Tiddly Inks face recrutari pentru echipa de design si promovare! Eu am decis sa particip la competitie asa ca va rog sa-mi tineti pumnii.

For the DT call the challenge is to create a card with the favorite stamp from their shop. It was hard to choose a favorite stamp because all are their stamps are so cute. After a long debate with myself I've decided that my favorite stamp is Wryn and Emmy - BFF. It's a very nice stamp and you can make special cards for your best friends.
Pentru DT call provocarea este sa creezi o felicitare cu stampila preferata din magazinul lor. Mi-a fost greu sa aleg o stampila preferata pentru ca toate stampilele lor sunt asa de dragute. Dupa o dezbatere lunga cu mine insami am decis ca stampila mea preferata este Wryn and Emmy - BFF. Este o stampila foarte draguta cu care poti sa faci felicitari speciale pentru prietenele tale.
 
The stamp comes in digital format and you can resize it as you wish. I color the stamps using Promarkers so for this image I used the following: 
* for the black hair and the shoes: Black, Cool Grey 4, Cool Grey 3, Cool Grey 1 and a little bit of white gel pen 
* for the red hair: Ruby, Dusty Rose and  a little bit of white gel pen
* for the skin: Coral, Blush and Sunkissed Pink
* yellow dress: Gold, Sunflower, Moss (for the pockets) and a little bit of white gel pen
* green dress: Apple Cider, Moss and a little bit of white gel pen
The scraps of paper are from different companies.
Stampila vine in format digital si poate fi redimensionata dupa dorinta fiecaruia. Eu colorez stampilele cu Promarkers asa ca pentru aceasta imagine am folosit:
* pentru parul negru si pantofi: Black, Cool Grey 4, Cool Grey 3, Cool Grey 1 si putin pix cu gel alb
* pentru parul rosu: Ruby, Dusty Rose si putin pix cu gel alb
* pentru piele: Coral, Blush and Sunkissed Pink
* pentru rochita galbena: Gold, Sunflower, Moss (for the pockets)  si putin pix cu gel alb
* pentru rochita verde: Apple Cider, Moss  si putin pix cu gel alb

Happy crafting!
Spor la mesterit!

Altered book from my handmade wedding

I promised I'll be back with some more handmade stuff from my wedding. Well here it is: The Altered Engagement Book. This book could be found on the guestbook table for everybody to enjoy.
Dupa cum am promis, am revenit cu elemente din nunta mea handmade. Va prezint cartea cu imagini de la logodna. Aceasta carte a zabovit pe masa cartii invitatilor pentru ca toata lumea sa o poata vedea in voie.
Here ypu have a full view of it.
Aici este o imagine cu toata cartea.
 
And here are some close ups.
Iar aici sunt niste detalii.
(Look... those are the butterflies from the wedding invite!)
(Uite fluturasii de pe invitatie!)

(Oh... and ther is the bike too!)
(Oh... si bicicleta e aici!)




And now some details of how I've done it. I found inspiration on the Sizzix blog here. For my version of the book I've used Distress ink pads, some Sizzix dies, Unity stamps, pre-made paper flowers and lots of pictures from our engagement trip to Paris.
Si acum sa va dau niste detalii de cum am realizat-o. Inspiratia am gasit-o aici. Pentru versiunea mea am folosit tusiere Distress ink, matrite Sizzix, stampile Unity, flori din hartie si multe fotografii din excursia noastra de logodna din Paris.

Mixed media with Paris

Second post this week? Wooow... I'm beginning to make up for the month of June. Today I wanna share with you a mixed media project I did for A Mixed Media Color Challenge.
Al doilea post pe saptamana asta? Woow... incep sa recuperez lipsa de posturi din luna iunie. Azi vreau sa va arat un proiect mixed media pe care l-am facut pentru  A Mixed Media Color Challenge.
It is a two pages project and was inspired by Finnabair's work.
Este un proiect de doua pagini ce a fost inspirat din operele de arta ale lui Finnabair.





For this project I used gesso, food coloring, Distress inks, some Sizzix cut-outs and a picture and me and Paris in the background.
Pentru acest proiect am folosit gesso, colorant alimentar, distress inks, floricele si litere taiate cu Sizzix si o fotografie cu mine si Parisul in spate.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
Multumesc pentru vizita! Sa aveti o zi minunata!
