MEMORIES...


Ciao a tutti, buona Domenica e buona Festa della Mamma!
Oggi vi presento il mio nuovo progetto per il DT di MarteLAB, dedicato ad una mamma speciale...la mia nonna materna...QUI sul Blog di MarteLAB  potrete trovare il tutorial in Italiano... qui sotto, invece proporrò il tutorial in inglese.

Hello my friends happy Sunday and Happy Mother's Day!
I have made a Mixed Media Layout for MarteLAB DT, and I have decided to dedicate it to a very special Mom...my Grandmother! Unfortunately I have never met her, but I have come to know her a bit through my Mother's memories, and with this LO I wanted to celebrate them both.

I have glued together  three sheets of designer paper and distressed them with my scissors. Applied Clear Gesso and then a very thinned layer of White Gesso, tied some string across the middle then added Modeling Paste through two Tim Holtz Layering Stencils - one is from Mini Set #24 and the other is 'Roses'. While the paste was still wet I added some lace, adding also Prima/Finnabair Soft Matte Gel, then let dry. To add colour I have used PaperArtsy Infusions 'Frankly Scarlet' and 'Terracotta',  TommyArt Ink Extreme 'Bordeaux'  then Lindy's Gang Starburst 'Hottie Patottie Hot Pink' , Moon Shadow Mists 'Violaceous Violet' and 'Phantom Fuchsia'. Once dry I used the 'second generation' stamping technique with Black Archival Ink and Prima/Finnabair 'Messy' stamp. I spattered with the inks, adding also some white ink drops.


I have then built my composition using leftover papers, more lace and thread, added my GrandMother's picture, that I have 'aged' using Distress Inks, a frame die cut with 'Ornate Frame #2' BIGZ Die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations and a chipboard word... I have covered these two pieces with Heavy Black Gesso then added touches of Metallique Waxes 'Old Silver' and 'Vintage Gold', all by Prima/Finnabair, then some Prima flowers that I have sprayed with the inks mentionned before.



I submit this project to the following Challenge:

MORE THAN WORDS MAY 2018 CHALLENGE: MEMORIES & FRAME
All this project is about MEMORIES...of my childhood when my Mum used to share cherished memories about her own Mother, of my heritage, discovering traits and similarities in old pictures kept in a drawer...of my Mum, who is always in my thoughts...Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you for stopping by...See you next time!

Kisses&Hugs!
Simo.
