Just be you- Mixed Media

Lo so, è un controsenso, ma sono fatta così... da quando ho pochissimo tempo per creare, ho sempre più voglia di lasciare la briglia sciolta alla fantasia e di "pasticciare" con i colori e i miei bits&bobs... senza progetti né vincoli in testa!  :D Anche se da qualche tempo riesco a fare progetti più puliti e semplici, la mia passione sono quelli "Full of Frills" perché mi sento libera! :)
Così, quando finalmente ho avuto due ore tutte per me, ho fatto questo pannello decorativo per la mia casa. (40 x 35 cm circa) :D
Non ho tempo per elencare tutte le cose che ho usato (stencils, fustelle...) e i relativi brands, ma se avete qualche curiosità scrivetemelo e risponderò...  Però metto un bel po' di foto, quindi mettetevi comodi. :D
La base che fa da cornice è un cartone di recupero, spesso e molto rigido, tipo chipboard. Per alterarlo ho usato moltissimi stencils, alcuni dei quali handmade, vari Distess Inks e acrilico color oro; ho fatto molti strati, perché non ero contenta del risultato... Poi con il biadesivo ci ho incollato sopra il layer "finto legno"
La carta finto legno fa parte di un bellissimo blocco My Mind's Eye (Brambled Roses 2), che ho acquistato in saldo tempo addietro.
Il quadrato centrale invece è cartoncino da acquerello molto rigido e texturizzato; lo avevo colorato con i Brushos molto tempo addietro, e per questo progetto ci ho solo aggiunto dei fiori a stencil. Sul sentiment ho messo del Nuvo Mousse glitterato.
Tutte le forme fustellate che decorano il pannello erano già pronte: le ho prese nel mio organizer per il recupero degli scraps, dove metto tutte le fustellate che faccio con la Big Shot e i rimasugli di carta; ho soltanto modificato i colori usando i D.I. o il colore oro acrilico. Non ho tempo per nominare una per una le fustelle usate qui, ma ve ne sono  Sizzix, Memory Box, Creative Expressions... e molte altre.
Anche i fiori handmade erano già pronti in una scatola: due li avevo fatti con il vellum e piccole perline al centro; tutti gli altri con la carta di un vecchio libro e colori spray.
Alcune foglie sono tagliate con i punches.
Ho schizzato del colore "random" con un pennello e acrilico arancione diluito con acqua.
Anche per appendere il pannello ho usato della carta... :D Infatti la "corda" in realtà è una striscia di carta strappata da un sacchetto del pane, avuto in regalo da un panettiere.
Ho spruzzato con acqua e colla la striscia di carta e l'ho attorcigliata strettamente su su sé stessa. Ho fatto due buchi nel chipboard, ci ho fatto passare la striscia di carta attorcigliata e ho l'ho legata con due nodi sul retro.

Your page is full of beautiful textures and I love the handmade blooms! Perfect make for our Country View Challenge this month, thanks for sharing with us!

Pia S ha detto...

I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I’m freaking out about the idea of making something like this, and 2 hours seems so little time to make it. You create something messy organized, mine would be simply messy. How different we are...

Lori ha detto...

Beautiful! Love the glittered words, all the texture and pretty flowers!

Carol L ha detto...

You just never cease to amaze me with your creations!! I love all the colors you managed to put into this project, and each and every embellishment has the perfect place to reside! I love that this reminds you to just be yourself, something we all need to remember to do more often! Well done, and I'm glad you found time in your busy schedule to spend doing something you love - crafting! Beautiful work!

Debra K. ha detto...

Wow, wow, WOW!!!!! Oh Alice, this is just too stunningly amazing for words. This is your best creation yet! Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous and go beautifully with your fantastic background. I can't believe you even made the string to hang it up with. This would cost a great deal to buy in an art gallery. You just amaze me you very talented lady! This will be your pride and joy in your home I'm sure. Debra x

Wow, Wow, and more Wow! You made good use of your crafting time, my friend! This is a beautiful piece of wall art for your home! I love how many details there are to look at and enjoy! The handmade flowers and punched shapes that you had ready to use came in very handy and saved so much time by having them made ahead! I like to do this too! It's such a great way to use up scraps of paper! I am amazed at all the flowers and they seem to shimmer in the light, as does the awesome sentiment! Beautiful details on this beautiful wall decor!
