Hello people.

Just wanted to late post this special mini album I recently made but had not shared in the blog.  I guess blogs are disappearing and other social media platforms such as facebook and Instagram mainly, are taking over.  However, I like to post my projects in the blog because it is like my personal library. So, even though followers and commenters have moved or grown over other platforms, hope I can keep my blog.


This mini album is quite simple in terms of the style.  It is a CAS (Clean and Simple) style project.  I have clarified in the past that mistakenly some people think that CAS style is minimalist.  even though it can often be based on minimalism, what I've learned is that CAS style also refer to projects that can be easily replicate.  You can use several techniques and still be creating CAS.  In my case I sometimes just want to make something without stamps and painting or use of powders, etc...  so that for me is CAS.


So, the album is special because it is about my goddaughter.  And it is also special because it is CAS. I essentialy used patterned papers, stickers, cutouts, chipboard, sequins, enamel dots, rub-ons and tiny photos.


My goddaughter graduated from Junior and she looked stunning for her ceremony, and her prom.


But most importantly, she is a good student and a good girl.  She's healthy, she's smart, humble and beautiful.  What else can someone ask for?


She laughs with us, she share her feelings and she enjoys the simple things...


like baking... LOL!


We love her.  She's very special.



Hope you likely mini album. :)

Hey cool people. Hope you are fine.

I am trying to come back to my hobby more actively after a year with many things happening... All good.  Just a lot of work and family duties... and I guess one gets used to changes after all.

I made two little tiny canvas for the current Take It Make It Challenge from Craft Stamper Magazine. (click to see more).  I've collaborated with this magazine and I used to participate a lot in this challenge just for fun ... so I said to myself... Let's come back. :)




I applied gesso and acrylic paint to the mini canvas.



In one of them I stamped the image first, then colored.  I then applied with mod podge little strips of patterned papers to frame the image.   I didn't worry about covering part of the image 'cause it was on purpose...


I stamped the image again to "take it out" of the frame and make it pop.



For the second tiny canvas, I stamped the image in a separate paper, colored, and along with other images from patterned paper, I fussy cut and placed in the canvas.




I also used some enamel accents to provide some dimension. 


When dry, I applied mod podge as well and some glitter.


Here's the final project of the canvas duo.  I will of course share with my friends at the Craft Stamper magazine blog.  Wish me luck because there is an amazing prize :)
