Eccomi qua, come promesso, a raccontarvi il secondo meraviglioso avvenimento scrap di quest’ultimo weekend: Barbara è venuta a trovarci!!!
Voilà, here I am as promised, to tell you about the second wonderful scrap event we had: last weekend Barbara came to visit us!!
E’ arrivata venerdì sera, e abbiamo mangiato una pizza assieme, poi sabato mattina ci siamo date appuntamento da Raffa, che gentilmente ha messo a disposizione la sua bella casa, e abbiamo lavorato! J Di mattina Barbara ci ha fatto un corso di colorazione con i distress reinker: Bellissimo!!! Abbiamo colorato un paio di bamboline Tilda, e devo dire che mi sono innamorata di questo colori!! Sono bellissimi, danno un colore così caldo e delicato, e sono così trasparenti insomma una meraviglia!! J Poi Barbara è stata una maestra meravigliosa, e sotto la sua guida tutte siamo riuscite a colorare la nostra bambolina!
…un paio di foto, ci vedete indaffarate e rapite dalla magia di questi colori….
She arrived Friday night, and we had a pizza all together, then Saturday morning we met all together at Raffa’s place, and we worked all together! During the morning Barbara taught us to colour with the distress reinker: Wonderful! We coloured 2/3 Tilda each, and I have to say I fell in love with these wonderful colours! They have suche a warm colouring, so transparent and bright! Barbara has been such a great teacher! J and with her advice all of us succeeded to do something nice! J
A few pictures to see how busy and fascinated we were from the colours…
E queste sono le mie bamboline… non sono un amore??
These are my little Tilda, aren’t they lovely??
For Lunch, we had a break, to taste the lovely lunch Raffa’s mother in law, cooked for us! She has been very very kind! Also the lunch has been very pleasant!!
Dopo pranzo invece, ci siamo dedicate al progetto che ci ha proposto Barbara, una deliziosissima borsetta di cartone, tutta rivestita di carta e lino Per un attimo ho pensato che non ci saremmo mai riuscite, i pezzi da tagliare erano tanti non riuscivamo a fare dei tagli precisi e un po’ mi stava prendendo lo scoraggiamento, ma alla fine ci siamo riuscite e pian piano anche le nostre borsine hanno iniziato a prendere forma!! J Purtroppo non ho foto del progetto già realizzato da Barbara ma vi garantisco che era strepitosa!!! Poi non appena sarà ultimata vi mostrerò la mia, ma mi manca ancora il manico!!
After lunch, instead, we made the project that Barbara, a very lovely little bag, tha Ba’s bag!! For a moment I panicked we would never be done with it! ‘cause the pieces to cut were a lot… but after a while even or little bags started to look nice! J It’s a shame I don’t have even a picture of the Ba’s one, but I can ensure you it was great!!! As soon as I’ll finish mine, I’ll show it to you, I still miss the handle!
Insomma è stata una giornata bellissima all’insegna dello scrap e delle chiacchiere, quindi ancora una volta ringrazio infinitamente Barbara per essere venuta a trovarci: GRAZE BRABARA!!!!
So It has been a lovely day, and one more time I want to say: THANYOU BARBARA!!!
Unica nota negativa è stata la conclusione del weekend per Raffa, la quale si è sentita male, e alla quale mando oltre ad un bacio ed un abbraccio gigante, un augurio di rimettersi al più presto! …e grazie anche a lei per aver messo tanto gentilmente a disposizione la sua casa! J
The only down side has been the conclusion of the weekend for Raffa, who felt sick, and to who I want to send a ig kiss and huge hug, and wish to get well soon! …thanks to her as well, who made very kindly available her house! J
See you soon….
...Qualche dettaglio più da vicino....
This is the mouse from Wiff of Joy, I colored it with my watercolor pencils… isn’it so sweet?...this card was followed by a colored pullover, that my sister is wearing with pleasure, and from a chocolate cake, that I made, with milk cream… but they didn’t leave me the time to take a picture of that, sorry! ;)
I made this card abaut 2 weeks ago, for a friend birthday, actually with it I wanted to enter the Magnolia challenge, that had as theme “bright and ziggy”, but days went and with all happened to me, I didn’t had time to post it!I used the Nana’s kid papers, I love this shining patterned paper, and it was long time I was watching it, but I didn’t succeed to use it, and finally I had the inspiration!! Then I embossed the sentiment, to make it a little more evident! :)
Here a detail, the super sweet stamp from Magnolia, that I colored with my watercolor pencils! Then I enriched the little antennas with 2 little strass, to give light and to match to the strass on the flower… do you like it?
Finally, after a while, I can post this work I made! They are the small gift to give away for a First Communion... They asked me something very simple, just the symbol, like a bookmarker, made of some sort of natural paper... I thought about that, I made some samples, and finally this is what they liked most! Laura, the child who made the First Communion, loves the animals, so I picked several stamp of animals, and colored them with my watercolor pencils... My Friend already bought the little bags, for the sugared almonds, half of them was lilac, and half ivory, so these were the two main colors!
Here you can see the animals I picked, the most laborious has been the horse, cause it was too large, and I had to crop it carefully... But it is Laura's favorite animal, so I couldn't miss it! ;)
Here is the inside part, I printed on a vellum paper, and then I punched it, I used 3 different punches, this one from Martha Stewart, one with flowers, and one from fiskars, but I took the picture only f this one! :)
Finally here is the complete basket, full and ready to be given... I wrap it up with a transparent cellophane, and I made a big pink Papillion! It was a big work, but Laura and her Mum Andreina really liked it!! :)
This cute image is a wiff of joy stamp, and I really enjoyed coloring it with the polychromes pencils, I am very surprised of myself, who know me know that I don’t love the greens, but today I Had the green inspiration!
