A second attempt, full of glitter

This project is my entry for: 'September Challenge' on Beccy's Place.
Proiectul meu pentru provocarea lunii septembrie, pe site-ul lui Beccy

Just o few words: in 'the May challenge' I told you that my trial of coloring
the embossed flower, failed. So, this time, due to the optional element added,
I tried again:

A protected flower!

 

The original image received from Beccy is:


Materials and techniques:
Materiale si tehnici:

- two layers: the base is black dim. ~11.5 cm x 16 cm;
                      the second, with the embossed flower is a transparent paper;
                      I printed on a paper too thin,  so the embossing was performed
                      on a thicker one, dim. ~8.5 cm  12 cm;
- for coloring I used: glitter on double sided scotch,  brush pens for the flower
                      and gold, copper and blue markers, for borders.

 

Am reluat ideea din mai, cand embosarea a esuat. Lucrarea are
doua straturi: o baza neagra si o foaie de calc pe care am realizat
floarea; initial am tiparit-o pe calc prea subtire si apoi am copiat-o
pe o hartie mai groasa; pentru colorare am folosit: sclipici pe
scoci dublu adeziv, carioci cu varf flexibil pentru floare
si markere: auriu, cuprat, albastru, pentru margini.

 

I'm really happy I tried again! 


Effects for my friends!


 

@@@@@@@@@Some interesting ideas, just for fun, when you have the mood!

'May Challenge' on Beccy's Place;
'More Mixed Media Challenge - Optional Pink'.

si pe site-ul More Mixed Media Challenge - Optional roz.


 I used a received  image created by Beccy.



Materials and techniques:
Materiale si tehnici:

- three layers: the base is painted in shiny blue; the image is printed on tracing paper
  and shaped as an oval;  the spiral is cut from a pink paper, slightly embossed;
- the colors used: acrylic (blue, green and golden), pencils and fineliner pens for 
  the flower, pink and green glitter and a pearlmaker pen for the spiral; 
- for the patterns I used two stencils;
- between the layers I used glue and for corners double-sided scotch;
- final dimensions: 13 cm x 18 cm.


Am folosit o baza colorata in bleu sidefat, floarea este tiparita
pe calc, iar spirala este taiata dintr-o hartie roz, cu model embosat.

Culorile folosite: acrilice (verde, bleu, auriu), creioane si carioci
subtiri, glitter roz si verde si gel pentru contur, zona spiralei.
Pentru modele  am folosit doua sabloane. Straturile sunt lipite iar
pe colturile cu sclipici am folosit scoci dublu-adeziv.

Initially, I wanted to to use  embossing on the tracing paper, 
but the coloring failed!  😅



This is my new project for the both challenges.
And of course, some effects!
