How I create, step by step

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1l

I´ve been asked if I will join Thats Just So Cute as a guest designer in February, and of course I will! So fun! I´ve made this card after my choice of challenge theme: My sketch, shabby chic and at lace.

The hot air ballons is chipboard, and they comes from Scrapiniec.
I combine this challenge post with my dt post for Scrapiniec.

This is the sketch, and it´s ok to turn it on what way you want, but it will be clear that you´ve used the sketch. Jump over to Thats Just So Cute and join the challenge! I will put toghether the prize for the winner!

This is how I create.
First I choose things I want on my card.
Here is both decorations, motives and papers.
I NEVER glue anything before I´ve put it
together at the card, and I´m satisfied with
the places for everything. I can sit for an
hour and move around things before I´m
totally satisfied.

This is my favorite tools.

This is my favorite medium; gesso, white crackle paint, fran-tage embossing, glossy accent, stickles Star Dust, chalk, sparklers (like stickles but thinner – you have to use a brush) and distress paint.
I´m not use everything on every creation, but almost.

First I roll around every paper like this.
Or use a sewing machine.

Then I put on some chalk…

…or distress paint… or gesso… it´s different from time to time.

And then I distresss the edges with an edge scraper. It´s easier to do that AFTER chalk, because the chalk make the paper a little bit wet, and I prefer that. AND the chalk will be alive a little bit longer.

When I´m totally satisfied with how I want everything to
be on my creation, I glue it.

Then I use a brush and paint white gesso at flowers, papers, corners, charms and other things. Just to make it shabby. I prefer it that way. It looks a little bit more alive then. After gesso I use crackle paint here and there so it got crackled and looks old.

I use stickles, star dust is my favorite, at flowers and some details.

2014creation-for-thatsjustsocute1k

I love to use glossy accent on details. If it´s a colored motive I use it on shoes, eyes, lips somtimes, buttons and other small details. I love the effect it will make to the whole creation. Here I have used it at the text. It´s stickers and i like it to be a little bit glossy to pop.

When the creation has dried it looks like this!

Thanks for share this; very very instructive. Elena.



Bente

Tack för att du delar med dig av dina tekniker. Det är verkligen generöst 🙂 . Vill också passa på och tacka för tipset om att klippa ut motiven innan man målar dem. Har gjort detta för första gången och det blir superbra!



Marina

Your card is stunning! And thank you so much for sharing your way to make a card.

Hugs,

Hej Milo, var köper du sparklers?

Reply by Milo Lilja, April 18th, 2014 at 16:16

@Bente, Jag vet inte om jag har svarat dig på detta, men jag har fått den från Scrapbutiken.com



Bente

Och där hittar jag det inte 😐 😥 . Det hade varit trevligt med något alternativ till Stickles men man får väl lära sig bli ännu mer kreativ med det man har istället 🙂

Reply by Milo Lilja, June 20th, 2014 at 20:22

@Bente, Jag brukar använda pensel ibland när jag målar på stickles, och det blir ungefär som den där andra flaskan. =)
Fördröjning på mina svar här tydligen!
kram Milo ♥



Bente

Tack för svar Milo, lite fördröjning här med 🙄 Späder du Stickles med vatten i det läger eller gör du “rakt av”?

Right here is the right webpage for everyone who hopes to understand
this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough
to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).

You certainly puut a new spin on a topic that’s been discussed
for decades. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

My website is on a remote server, I have copied all the files from their remote host server. How do I now configure MAMP to see this as a local copy of wordpress so I can edit it and try out different themes.Please help. I am pulling my hair out!

realmente, isto só visto! como se o miradouro já não estivesse suficientemente degradado! aquilo está uma vergonha! o mínimo que a câmara devia fazer era simplesmente fechar o miradouro ao público.
