Art Journal Page - The Olympics 2012

This is my representation in Art form of The Olympics 2012, just had the need to create something like this. I've used my Art Journal cause I haven't been lately using it, but the good thing with this journal is that you are open to create whatever you like, however you like.

So I don't forget such a Historic Event is part of my Art Journal now and I can't wait for the event to start at London, looking forward to watch all the sports that will be competing for Gold. I hope you like it :)

Fun Halloween Card

I just had the feel for doing a Halloween card, I've been wanting to do this for a while so I've decided to give it a shot. Of course I've try to use all the Halloween colors possible and was exited to use my Halloween Stamp Set form Tim Holtz that I have never used before.

I have to say that this was very fun to do, and very easy specially again not having like beautiful Halloween paper I've seen other people use. I went with the basics and went for it :P

This card will be for sale at my Etsy Store, I hope you like it :)

Paper Roses and Rosettas

I've learn how to make paper Roses and Rosettas, I think this is very fun to do and I love Roses. So I really been watching videos on many different ways on how to this beautiful crafty flowers.

Roses have always been my favorite flower and that is why I've change the name of my blog and other pages to TatteredRoses41, so having a name like that you have to know how to make a Rose haha....So I did and I'm still learning. I have put them for sale at my TatteredRoses41 Etsy Store and I will make more for sale so check them out....Love this Roses :)

Teen Mini Book/Album for Boys

Well I've really got into Mini Albums lately and love it, I've got  a dye from Sizzix that makes this type of mini cover or pages and is very fun. So the first thing I've though about to make was a nice mini to my Teenage son, I've created this mini album with lots of fun things that teenage now a days like and I wanted to share it with you. If you like to see how this mini was done please visit My Ustream Channel, luckily I've recorded all the process and is fun to watch as well as a final video on my YouTube Channel. Enjoy :)

OWH Sketch Challenge #128

This is a very nice skecth even though I've broke the rules a little bit lol...but I think I got away with a nice combination of colors and the paper I've use on this card was an 8x8 Antique Paperie from Colorbok. the embellishments were orange flowers with a faux white pearl to give that summer look.  A nice sentiment and that says Dare To Dream...will you?

OWH Daily Bread Designs July Challenge

Well this time is all about cool colors to create a cool card. Operation Write Home has chosen for July challenge to make a card with colors like blues, greens and violets. I can include neutral colors to make a beautiful card, so I did. This colors are wonderful to play with, I have to admit that laventer is my favorite color so this combination of colors made me happy and it was very nice to do a crad like this.

I've use a nice handmade paper for the background is a very delicate paper to work with but the results came out beautiful. Then I added paper from a 4x6 K&Company Susan Winget collection, beutiful colors perfect for the card. Added the infamous Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch with a lavender Faux Pearl and a sentiment. The card was round corner punch to give more of a delicate look This card is very nice it was definitely made with Love :)

My First TP Mini Album

Ok one day I was just looking at some other people's wonderful creations and I came across with what is I think a big trend in the crafting world. The Mini Albums, so I was like wow I want to make one so I started looking for more ideas and what was the easiest way to make one for a Mini Album Rookie LOL...

So I thought making one with lunch paper bags will be the best idea and the easiest but I made a video asking my viewers if they would like me to do a Toilet Paper Mini Album or a Lunch Paper Bag Mini...they choose Toilet Paper haha...

Even though this was my first mini I have to tell you that I love the experience and I think I was bitten by the Mini Bug lol...OMG I love this things I think I'm addicted now...haha...Hope you like it!!!

Compendium of Curiosities 2 - Configuration Box Time

So for this technique chosen for this week’s CC2C Challenge on the Studio L3 blog is the Configuration Box The instructions for the technique can be found on pages 33 and 34 of Tim Holtz’s book Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2.

Well this is a work in progress, but I love everything so far what I did was fun and I put all my heart in to it. So this will be my first Tim Holtz configuration box and I embellish some using personal and childhood little things I found here and there in my closet. I've handmade Polymer Clay Figures made by myself, as you all know all love skulpting and playing with polymer clay. The paper I used was from the 12x12  Vintage Treasures from COLORBOK and then I use some of the Tim Holtz 12x12 Holiday Collection as well. The Tissue Paper was made by myself with Tim Holtz Stamps. So I hope you all likethis configuration box as much as I do :)
