Altered Box ''Le Grand Atelier''

Hello Everybody,

I'm so excited to share with you today my latest creation. This time I got inspired by the challenge hosted by SIMON SAYS STAMP MONDAY CHALLENGE. I loved the idea of creating something inside of a box, As I was reading the challenge post and looking at the inspiration provided by the design team, Ideas began to pop into my head and I ended up creating this ''sewing studio box''. My love for sewing and decoration contributed to this creation that I love so much and named ''LE GRAND ATELIER'' I hope everyone reading this post loves this altered box as much as I do, I truly enjoyed creating it. The majority of the embellishments for this box I handcrafted since I didn't have many sewing metal embellishments available, but that is the fun part right? Creating even to the small details. I used Tim Holtz embellishments and papers I purchased in their Simon Says Stamp Shop.

Here some pictures of my altered box LE GRAND ATELIER:

Journal Project ''The Beauty of a Heart''

Hello Friends,

I'm so happy to be sharing with you today my latest journal page ''The Beauty of a heart''.

I have created this page for the monthly challenge run by LINDY'S STAMP GANG. I love the vibrant colors of this month's mood board and inspired me to create a page about how beautiful we are in the inside, about the inner beauty.

I used the spray SEA MINT GREEN, HIBISCUS ROSE and MERCI BEAUCOUP MINT to achieve this vibrant composition.

Here's the main picture of my Journal page:

Hello Friends!

I'm so happy to share with you today my latest altered project ''THE KEY TO TIMELESS HAPPINESS''

Fist of all, I would like to tell you how crazy I go over vintage style stuff! This is my favorite style to incorporate into my projects. When I read and seen the video from Sanda's tag, so many ideas instantly came to my mind. As I finished watching her video, my body instinctively walked me to my craft room where I pulled my stamps, paints, stencils, and brushes out. I began picking the elements to craft this clock I pictured in my mind.

I loved the theme she picked for the challenge. It inspired me to create this clock about a girl. Let me explain the meaning behind this original piece of artwork. The girl is shown twice, one picture is bigger than the other, this is to show WE ARE NOT THE ONES WE WERE YESTERDAY. Each and everyday we grow and change ever so slightly. Everyday we make decisions to evolve for the BETTER. This is why we also find a lot of greenery and flowery elements throughout the artwork. I also picked Finnabair's vintage clock frame and a lot of clock elements to show the meaning of time. We also find a KEYHOLE CHARM, HEARTS and a KEY to add the meaning ''LISTEN TO YOUR HEART, BE YOURSELF." That goes along with the meaning that ''we are the key to our success and happiness by doing what we love''.

Here's the main picture of my clock:

Altered Project ''Life is Sweet''

Hello Everybody!

I am beyond excited to share with you my latest project ''Life is Sweet''.

I think this is my most favorite project so far! I absolutely love how it turned out! The colors are just so sweet and it inspired me to create a FRENCH STYLE FLOWER CART. This cart represents all of the sweetness of life and I believe we all create our own little happy world in which we would like to live in. This is what I have created for myself with my hobby, a sweet life with so much art, creativity and happiness. I am inspired even more now that we are so close to the beginning of spring here in New York.

Here's the main picture of my creation:

Canvas ''Loves True Color''

Hello Everybody!

This time I'm proud to share with you my latest canvas ''Loves true color''.

This canvas was only created for the challenge hosted by MIXED MEDIA PLACE. I definitely fell in love with the moodboard of this month because it was about Winter. This season of the year is my most favorite. I also took inspiration from the berries and reds. So I decided to make a blended watercolor gradiant of red tones for my canvas background. I used lace twigs, red flowers, leaves, pinecones, and other winter elements. My canvas represents the beating heart of winter. 

Here is the main picture of my canvas:

Layout ''In Love''

Hello everybody!

Today I'm going to share with you my newest Layout ''In Love''.

I have to confess that I had so much fun creating this layout!! I love the sketch and color palette from this challenge, plus I absolutely like the idea of creating a page by having craft paper as a background . 
Did you ever hear anyone say ''A picture is worth a thousand words''? Based on this saying + sketch + palette color + a pinch of coastal chic is how I created this page. This month I decided to create projects all about LOVE. The story behind this Layout is the story of a girl in love. She represents all the gorgeous strong women who wait anxiously for the love of their lives to return to them, but the wait is worth it because at the end the only thing that matters is LOVE. 

I used paper flowers in the blue tones of the sketch, I also decided to include gold elements as complementary color of my composition, plus the classic black and white touches are a must in my creations. I also used the white wooden pattern paper as one of my layers for this layout.  I followed some of the elements and positions of the sketch like the text right next to the picture, the ribbon at the bottom, banner tittle in the right corner of the picture and element position. I also stamped the number 5 under the ribbon. I hope you like this layout as much as I do.

Here are some more detailed pictures of my layout:
