                          the second layer is a decorative paper, imitating stitching, with many 

                          shades of violet and the third layer has the printed image;
 - on the white board I used on the lateral sides a deco punch for borders; 
 - as embellishment: two pieces of  golden lace, bonded with glue;
 - the colors used: a metallic golden for lateral pattern, pencils for the image
   and a red gel crayon on the lavender ribbon;

 - the corners were shaped with a punch for radius;
 - between the layers is double-sided scotch;

Felicitarea are trei straturi: o baza galben pal, o coala decor
cu o imagine imitand cusatura si un strat alb pe care am tiparit
imaginea si care are doua borduri laterale perforate si colorate
in auriu. Ca accesoriu, doua bucatele de plasa aurie, lipita;
Colorarea este cu creioane. Lipirea s-a facut cu scoci dublu

'May Challenge' on Beccy's Place;

 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;

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!

A mandala from grapes

This project is my entry for:
'March Challenge' on Beccy's Place;
'More Mixed Media Challenge - Optional Green'. 
Proiectul meu pentru provocarea lunii martie, pe site-ul lui Beccy 
si pe site-ul More Mixed Media Challenge - Optional verde.


The image used was: 'Bunch of grapes' - Beccy's creation.

LH - Beccy's creation; RH - transformed image

Materials and techniques:
Materiale si tehnici:

- three layers: one green - card stock, one green covered with  acrylic silver color
                         (a very thin coat, just to create some shades) and a white board on
                         which I printed the mandala, circle shaped;
- a special hobby puncher used for the border of the second layer;
- for coloring : pencils for the center area, a green shiny gel pen, fineliner pens for leaves,
                          acrylic gold and red and some dots obtained with a pearl maker pen; 
- both sides adhesive tape between layers;
- between leaves areas I used  heat embossing.  

Felicitarea este realizata din trei straturi, lipite intre ele cu banda
autoadeziva. Elementul central este perforat cu model la capete si
este acoperit cu un strat argintiu, foarte usor. Pentru culori am folosit
creioane, carioci din care una cu gel, acrilice auriu si rosu, marker gel pentru
puncte si intre zonele cu frunze, culoare aplicata prim embosare la cald.

This time, a mandala was obtained from grapes!
It was fun!


Addicted to effects!



I wish you all, be safe and positive!
After the storm, the sun will shine again! 





February challenge

The Red challenge

March Constellation

My creation for:
More Mixed Media Challenge: 'Anything goes + Optional red'.





Materials and techniques:
Materiale si tehnici:

- drops of hot glue: the funny effect was that between them, appeared a very, very thin 
  glue 'wire', an unintentionally connection, as you can see bellow;
  picaturi de silicon topit intre care s-a format un fir foarte subtire prin care s-au interconectat,
  asa cum se poate vedea in imagine;




- a green card with shiny effects (stock size), on which the drops were bonded;
- a red heart and a flower stamped in a red foam;
- a special Romanian symbol for March and Spring celebration, in red and white;
- acrylic gold color for painting the drops and  the background and red color for
  the 'wires'.
 


Pe carton verde cu model am lipit picaturile, o inima si o
floare stantate in spuma rosie, un fir de martisor si apoi
cu acrilice auriu si rosu am realizat efectele.




Could be a March Constellation? Perhaps...

ps. The frame is not real. Just for presentation!
