Altered letter by Lea

Hi all, Lea’s here :last date of the month for me, and as part of this team. I want to thank Jody for her kindness and helpfulness and I hope our paths will meet again in the future and want to thank all the wonderful creative who shared with me this way.

I decided to play this week with a very recently purchased wood letter.

I sanded a bit ‘because not being rough but already painted, I feared that the layers I had in mind not adhere as I wanted.I applied here and there some   crackle modeling pastes, and when dry I have stretched white acrylic gesso.

Done this I used watercolors, green and tourquoise. I used a stamp with black Archival ink and some white paint splatters . I wrapped the wire around the letter, and in some places I also wrapped the wire around the silver stars from Alma Mater sequins mix and some green,pink and dark grey sequins from Green Machine mix and glued them to the letter.  Finally, I created two simple paper flower that I glued to the letter  too and colored them with watercolors. That’s all. Now you can use this letter for several fun uses…there are no limits to the imagination.

Seriously layout by Lea

Hello girls, Lea ‘s here and waiting for the big event on Saturday, here I am for the weekly usual appointment. Today I made a mixedmedia layout …It is known my last passion for GELLI printing plate:I printed several levels, with different colors: the paper I used is not smooth but quite rough and this gives the press a grungy and pictorial effect that I really liked to use it as the basis of my project. After I adding some different stamping with Black Archival ink, some splashes of color and two sequin mix (Sunny smile and A Day in the woods),all this give greater relief to the focal point of my page, where build the whole composition.

I used some patterned paper and a paper doily, that I split in half, as the basis for the  photo, I added thickness cardboard and on two glassine bags  for a transparent effect that befits the very background style: at the end, I added the photo.

Then  I shot several times of the  white twine around this layering to highlight the photo  and  as last steps I added the title.

Hello card by Lea

Hi all, Lea’s here. I made a card to accompany a small gift for a friend … a printing with GELLI plate suggested me to use it to create the base of the card, I distressed all sides and I created two snatches from which come out  pieces of lace. I attached this base to a slightly larger cardstock and to which I attached the washi tape all along the perimeter, so as to create a frame to the printed base. I added half doily paper  and the net, and in the middle I created  a thickness with cardboard and  where I attacked a cutout printed clipping and I added the sentiment. Two delicious clothespins enrich the title. I added to complete the new and beautiful sequins mix, Alma Mater.

Fly tags by Lea

Hi all, Lea’s here: for my appointment today I created a set of three mini tags. Lately my passion exploded for Gelli plate so I decided to use my first experiments to create the base of my tags. So I cut from my print slightly smaller tag than basic and I pasted above, then I added some stamping and some white splashes. Then I added various embellishments, but especially some beautiful blue felt feathers, and one of the new mix of sequins: the one I used contains 5 different sequins as color, shape and size.

Magical Day in the Park mix sequins

Hi all, Lea’s here :today’s proposal is a couple of ATC  very easy and fast to say “thank you”.
I cut from cardboard two ATC (6.35 cm x 8.89) and I proceeded to each of the two in a very similar way. With the cotton thread I created an irregular circle and on it I applied the little stars of different colors and sizes giving the feeling of a small wreath; in the center I placed a wooden heart.
I have handwritten “thank you” and finally I splashed the color matched with the thread of the garland.
This project is very simple and quick to make a small thank-you card to accompany a gift or just to say “thank you”

Album/journal cover by Lea

Good  Thursday girls, today a little late but I hope you enjoy my project : it’s the cover of an album / journal on which I am working. The cover is completely handmade made with recovery cardboard  and cotton fabric. Once I built the cover I painted, printed and embellished it with stencils and different Shimmerz  colors. The result is very colorful and sparkling, thanks to the sequins that I put here and there to give light points. To complete the cover instead I used embellishments (doily, shipping tags, mini Clothspins, die cut) from the neutral color, so the cover did not appear too heavy. I have a lot of fun doing it.

Next album /  journal completed. See you soon and good creativity for all. xoxo Lea
