Mixed media baby

Na ta zaspan petek, sem se hotela malo odklopiti s pomočjo ustvarjanja in sem se odločila, da se bom poigrala z akrilnimi barvami in ostanki scrapbook papirja. V mislim nisem imela nič posebnega, tako da sem se odločala za sproti, kaj bom naredila.

On this sleepy Friday, I wanted to disconnect with the help of crafting.  I decided that I will play with acrylic paints and scraps of scrapbook paper. I didn't have anything particuly in my mind so I was going with the flow.

Na trši karton sem dodala stran iz stare knjige, dodala sem nekaj scrapbook ostankov in zelo razredčeno  akrilno barvo. S pomočjo šablon in gessota sem dodala teksturo, ter jo pobarvala z zlato akrilno barvo, prilepila papirnato brisačo v katero sem brisala čopič, narisala deklico in jo dodala na karton.

On a chipboard I added some page from an old book, added sam scraps and acrylic paints that I watered down. With a stencil and gesso I added some texture and colored it with gold acrylic paint, glue down a paper towel in which I wiped my brush, draw a girl and added to the chipboard.

Marie Antoinette čeveljček/Marie Antoinette shoes



Že kar nekaj časa občudujem Marie Antoinette čeveljčke in zbiram pogumen, da se jih lotim, saj sem vedno imela občutek, da je izdelava teh čevljev zelo zakomplicirana. Izkazalo se je, da to sploh ni res in da je izdelovanje teh šolenčkov prav zabavno in sproščujoče. Čevlje sem naredila tako, da sem jih narisala po vzorčku, ki sem ga pred tem sprinatala. Za lepljenje sem uporabila obojestranski lepilni trak in belo lepilo. Ugotovila sem da mi je lepljenje z belim lepilom mnogo bolj všeč, saj lahko še malo popravljaš in spreminjaš pozicijo, ker se stvar ne zalepi takoj, kot se to zgodi pri lepilnem traku. Čevelj je dolgi 15cm, in širok 4-5 cm.

For quite some time I admire Marie Antoinette shoes and collect the courage to do them because I always had the feeling that making these shoe is very complicated. It turns out that this is not true and that the production of these shoes is fun. I used double-sided tape and white glue. I realized that I like more to glue with PVC glue, you may fix some things  since the thing does not glue, so fast as it happens with adhesive tape. The shoe is 15cm long and 4-5 cm wide.

Predelan okvir/ Altered frame

Moj 6-mesečni nečak se je slikal za osebno in vsi v družini smo dobili povečano fotografijo. Fotografijo so  že vsi imeli razstavljeno na omarah, jaz pa sem mojo še kar imela v predalu. Ko je nekaj časa preteklo, sem se le odločila, da grem v Tedija in kupim lesen okvir za sliko, ki stane 1€. 

My 6 months old nephew got his first picture that he needed for his ID card and everyone in our family got a big picture of him. When everyone got the picture displayed, I still had mine in a drawer. So when some time passed by I decided to go to our one euro shop and bought a wooden frame.

Na fotografiji je oblečen v temno moder pulover, zato sem tudi dodatke naredila v tej barvi. S papirjem za brušenje sem prvo pobrusila po okvirju, saj je leta prelakiran in se lahko zgodi, da se stvari ne bodo dobro prijele na okvir.

On the picture is my nephew dressed  in dark blue sweater and that is the reason that I added all the embellishment in a blue color. First I sanded the frame because it had varnish on it and I was afraid that the embellishment wouldn't stick on it.


Na okvir sem nalepila zelen papir in ga distressala z vintage photo.

On the frame I added green paper and distressed it with vintage photo.

Na rjavo valovito lepenko sem dodala belo akrilno barvo, robove distresala s črno barvo. Dodala sem 3D nalepko medvedka z modrim metuljčkom. Okoli lepenke sem zavezala vrvico. Na zadnjo stran sem dodala stickpin in čipke. Zelo preprosto in enostavno.

On brown corrugated cardboard, I added white acrylic paint, I distressed the edges with black paint. Added a 3D sticker of a bear with a blue  tie. Around the cardboard I bind a thread. On the backside I glued a stickpin and lace.
Dodala sem tudi tag, ki sem ga po robovih prav tako distressala s črno barvo, nanj napisala Baby boy, dodala perle in na zadnjo stran dva zvitka rafije.

I also added a tag, which I also distressed with a black color, added a sign Baby boy, added pearls and raffia.

7# teden / #7 week

V 7. tednu je bilo v ospredju kvačkanje in gledanje olimpijskih iger, tako da ni veliko časa ostalo za kakšno drugačno ustvarjanje. Kvačkati sem začela prejšnji teden in žal moji izdelki še ne izgledajo, tako kot si želim, ampak se tolažim da če bom vztrajna bojo moji kvačkani prti čez 10 let zelo lepi ;)


In the 7th week I did a lot of crocheting and watching the Olympics, so there were not much time left for  other crafts. I started to crochet last week and unfortunately my products do not look like I would want them too, but I'm saying to myself if I'm persistent my tablecloths will look beautiful within 10 years. ;)

#6 teden/ #6 week

Pa smo pri malenkostih, ki sem jih ustvarila v 6 tednu. Večina teh stvari bom uporabila za druge projekte, ki jih bom delala, saj imam rada dodatke na razpolago, ko se lotim  česa zahtevnejšega.

I will show you all the little things that I created in week 6. Most of these things I will use for other projects that I'm working because I love accessories available when I start work something that takes more time. 

Naredila sem dve pahljači iz scrapbook papirja in čipk. Ta izdelek sem videla na YT kanalu od Jennings644.

I did two fans from scrapbook paper and lace. I sam this tutorial on YT channel from Jennings644.

Nato sem se poigrala z izdelavo različnih rožic. Vse so iz papirja. Razen desna bela pa iz blaga, stare majice.

Then I played with making different flowers. They are all made ​​of paper. Apartfrom the right white, which is made out of an old T-shirt.
Nato sem naredila še nekaj rožič iz čipke in organze. Beli čipkasti zgledajo v živo veliko lepše, kot na sliki. Tudi ta tutorial sem si ogledala na Jennings644.

Than I did some flowers out of organza and lace. This tutorial I also find on Jennings644 channel.

Zapestnici/bracelets

Čeprav nisem izdelovalka nakita, niti nisem v tem preveč dobra, imam kar nekaj materiala, ki mi leži v omari, v upanju, da se bom nekega dne zbudila kot super nadarjena nakitkarca (je to sploh izraz?) in prav zaradi tega (da sprobam če se je to že zgodilo, kako pa naj drugače vem) na vsake kvatre, vso opremo in škatle z raznimi kleščami, vrvicami in perlicami, ki jih imam, potegnem iz omare (še prej se morem do njih dokopati) in se lotim izdelovanja nakita, tako kot sem si ga v glavi zamislila. Seveda je izdelavo potrebno nekajkrat ponoviti in prilagodiit, ampak na koncu mi uspe narediti nekaj podobnega moji zamisli.

Although I'm not a jewelry maker and I'm not good at this, I have a lot of stuff to do jewelry that sits in my closet, in hopes that I will wake up some day like a super jewelry maker and because of this thought (so I can know, if this already happened, how else am I gone know)  every once in a while, all equipment and boxes with various pliers, strings and beads that I have, I pull out from my closet and I start making jewelry just like I imagined it in my head. Of course I have to try again and adjust my idea, but in the end somehow I managed to do a piece of jewelry.
Za zapestnici sem uporabila velike perle, male perle, verižico in zaključek. Pri prvi zapestnici sem uporabila srebrne velike perle, zlate male perle, ter vijoličasto verižico.  Želela sem narediti bolj  "uglajeno" zapestnico. Nisem najbolj prepričana, da mi je to tudi uspelo.

For the bracelet I used large pearls, small beads and chain. For the first bracelet I used silver pearls, small gold beads and purple chain. I wanted to do more "sophisticated" bracelet, but I don't know if I managed to do that.

Za naslednjo sem uporabila podobne zadeve, le drugačnih barv, saj sem si zaželela imeti tudi "divjo" zapestnico v tem stilu.

For the next bracelet I used the same things just in different colores because I wanted to have also a "wild" bracelet in the same style.

Ali so vam zapestnici všeč? Katera vam je bolj?

Do you like the bracelets? Which is your favorite one?

Tagi/Tags

Pred kratkim sem rezala scrapbook papirje in ker res težko vržem kakršenkoli  košček v smeti sem se odločila, da bom tudi te ozke špagete papirjev uporabila za nekaj, in mi jih tako ne bo treba odnesti v koš za recikliranje papirja.

Not to long ago I cut some scrapbook paper and because it is really hard for me to throw any bits and scraps in the recycling trash I decided  that although the scraps are very narrow spaghetti scraps I will use them for something.


Tako sem iz risalnega papirja izrezala tag in nanj nanizala obojestranski lepilni trak in začela nizati papirčke nanj. Papirčke sem nizala naključno, ko sem ves tag  prekrila s papirji sem odvečne dele odrezala.

From cartridge paper I cut out a tag and I added the double sided tape. Then I started to add paper. I added paper very randomly and when I was finished with adding the paper I cut of the rest of the paper.
Papirčkov je bilo veliko, toliko, da sem prekrila tri tage velikosti 4cm x 8cm in en manjši tag velikosti 1,8cm x 4,5 cm. Tagi so mi zelo všeč saj se na njih veliko "dogaja".

I had enough scraps to make three tags that measured 4cm x 8cm and one small tag 1,8 cm x 4,5 cm. I like the tags very much because they are very vibrant.

Na koncu sem v smeti vrgla zelo malo ostankov scrapbook papirja, kar me je zelo razveselilo. In tage bom lahko uporabila za projekt katerega pravkar delam. Če vas zanima od kje so prišli ostanki papirja in kaj bom naredila s tagi, pa kar veselo pokukajte v kratkem na moj blog.

I was very happy because I threw in the trash very little amount of scrapbook scraps. And the tags I can use for the project I am doing right now. If you are curies from where did the scraps come and what am I going to do with the tags, come visit my blog again and you will know.
