April Stencil 'Enchanting Tree': Altered Book

Welcome back in my blog. Today I show the new stencil I designed for April: these monthly stencils are meant to Bullet Journaling but I love the versatility of them, suitable for cardmaking, MixedMedia and even gel printing. Do you remember the Alice in Wonderland altered book from a while ago? (Here post and video tutorial), finally I made the cover, and I looooove it!
I used the new stencil with DecoArt Texture Metallic paint:

Here I used the new stencil for April spread in my Bullet Journal:
Here a super colourful card (a new fave one, as always ;-))
And another card, very simple, made with just Distress Oxides

VideoTutorial: Doll closet from a pasta box with GelliArts®

Hello everyone, today a post to cheer you up a bit! We really needed I think. I am a huge fan of collecting rubbish for  the noble goal to give it a second life. This is a fun, colourful project that you can make with your children and instead of covering the pasta box with gel prints you can use old book pages or patterned papers.

You can hang inside real, fabric doll clothes.

These are the luxury versions of the paper dress:
You can easily find paper doll dress templates on internet 
This one is gel printed on a book page (my favourite)

VideoTutorial: 1 Stencil Two style, Vintage or pop?

And last but not least today I show you how to use one of the stencil from the 'Beautiful Fifties' line in two ways, or better, how to achieve two very different style with just a medium, in this case Distress Oxides. Enjoy the video!

The vintage one:
Instead of the paper pattern you can use old books or vintage magazine as background:
As usual I forgot to NOT use Distress Oxides/Inks on gesso...after a while the colours disappear, so disappointing!

VideoTutorial: Textured Ikea Minidrawer

Hello everyone, as promised today a second video tutorial using the new 'Geometric Frenzy' stencil line. I've sort of stolen form my parent's house this old Ikea Moppe minidrawer decoupaged by me like 20 years ago and I thought it was high time to revamped it a bit. But when I proposed a bronze or silver redo I had a slight suggestion that it has to stay green (my least favourite colour ever) so green it is!

I left the sides almost untouched, and you can always come back to the decoupaged version just flipping the drawers

I really like the texture I got!
