Tim Holtz Tag of 2013 - December

I'm late for this one, but here it is Tim Holtz Tag of 2013 - December. Awesome creation, not to mention that I finally go the Poinsettia Die which is awesome. Love the colors and delicate touch of this tag. Of course I had to make some changes here and there but close to what Tim outcome was. I just made one cause I don't have that other Christmas Die which I think is called the Holly...so I skipped that one but is ok. Love my Tag anyways!





Happy New Year 2014!!!

Wishing you the best for the upcoming year, is been a hell of a ride this past year and I hope this new year brings better things. Very blessed for all my viewers and readers, you guys are amazing!!! Happy New Year 2014!!!

Swap-Bot.com

I've joined http://www.swap-bot.com, if you don't know what it is well is just a website to swap Art or Crafts like ATC's, Tags, Cards etc. But I like the ATC swaps so I'm concentrating on that alone.

My first swap for this site is called Glitter Christmas ATC, so I went ahead and create my ATC and send it. Hope you like my Christmas Theme ATC :)

Tim Holtz Tag of 2013 - October

This is my Tim Holtz Tag of 2013 of October, I love Halloween so this tag is fun. All the techniques that Tim uses on this tag you can find it at his website.

Vilda Stamps Design DT Project - Charlie Chaplin Card

This is my first Vilda Stamps Design Team project, is a card made with a Charlie Chaplin cling Rubber Stamp that you can find at http://wwww.vildastamps.com I love the outcome of the card, is very cool. 

I've colored Charlie Chaplin with my Copics Markers, I've used Distress Ink for the tag and some yarn to embellish. The paper is a musical writing paper made by Recollection, the reason I've chosen this paper is cause I used the sentiment Smile which is a song that Charlie Chaplin wrote. I've also used Tim Holtz on the edge die Gears to create that vintage Steampunk look.

"Smile" is a song based on an instrumental theme used in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the D minor music, while John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics and title in 1954. In the lyrics, based on lines and themes from the film, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. "Smile" has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin's film. The song, originally sung by Nat King Cole, charted in 1954. Singer Sunny Gale also covered the song, sharing sales with Cole, as shown in the music trade Cashbox. It was also covered by Cole's daughter, Natalie, on her 1991 album, Unforgettable... with Love.

I'm also showing you a throwback picture of myself with Charlie Chaplin at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida in the 90's, the picture is a little fuzzy but still can see me. You got to love it :)

My First Vilda Stamps Design Team Package

Well after a long wait for this package over seas from Sverige, I've finally got my first Vilda Stamps Design Team package. WOW! Love the stamps, it was worth the wait big time, I have to thank Anita and Ulrika for follow ups on the package, I was very worried cause it took allot of time to get here.

Anyway, the stamps came with 1 sheet of EZ Mounting foam. I got allot of work to do to have them ready so I can start making my projects. The Stamps I've selected are very nice, love the steampunk, retro, vintage feel they have the Ladies from Vilda Stamps also added some other extra stamps that are Christmas theme and I have to say that they are beautiful, not only they have read my mind about wanting Christmas stamps cause I don't have any, but sent me beautiful ones and they also added 2 little ones a butterfly and an Anchor just prefect. They also added an Acrylic Block so that was a nice bonus as well.

I have lots of stamps now that I can play with by stamping them and coloring them in my next projects, I can't wait.

THANK YOU!!!! To Vilda Stamps for such a wonderful welcoming! Happy crafting!!!!

Spectrum Noir Markers Color Chart

Well finally I've found the Spectrum Noir Color Chart, very handy to have specially if you are willing to start your own collection. These markers are great for coloring anything you want they are alcohol based very similar to the Copics, so if you are stamping coloring make sure to use  Memento Tuxedo Black or any Memento Ink to stamp your image, other wise you will ruin your markers. I really enjoy them very much and is giving me very nice results.

If you would like to find this chart please visit the Spectrum Noir Site.

Tim Holtz Tag of 2013 - September

Ok this is September, I can't believe we are in September of 2013. And of course I had to do the Tim's Tag cause I enjoy making this tags very much, Tim Holtz Tags of 2013 September.

Well this was a little bit of a challenge for me. because the first attempt I fail and now after not liking what I did I didn't give up. Tim made a beautiful Tag with his new Stencils and of course the techniques were awesome, but I had to use other resources in order to make my Tag look nice. The result stunning, love the colors and the techniques used very similar to what I do in my Art Journal however I've never did it in a Tag. I love it!




Copic Color Chart

I've got the Copic Charts from www.copicmarker.com and they are really cool, this is a must have to have more visual control of your markers. I've also made a Spider Man Chibi thanks to Dragon Art for the Tutorial, I hope you like him :)
