make your washi tape from you mixed media works!!!






Often, when I'm doing mixed media artworks to offer or sell I like to have a squareness in my work. To make the frame I use masking tape with the width I want and lap gently on the paper.
I do my art, paint, stamp, stencil, dooodle, and I care to advance to the masking tape, so that there is a continuity of the work for the tape.
At the end, after all and when everything is dry, I take off, carefully the masking tape and keep it in plastic sheets. I get a set of very original tape. I really like them. I have used them in my journal or planner art!

Muitas vezes, quando estou a fazer trabalhos de mixed media para oferecer ou vender eu gosto de ter uma esquadria no meu trabalho. Para fazer a moldura eu uso masking tape, da largura que quero e colo suavemente no papel. 
Faço o meu trabalho e tenho o cuidado de avançar para as margens de modo a que haja uma continuidade do trabalho para a fita adesiva. 
No fim, e depois de tudo bem seco, retiro, com cuidado a fita e guardo em folhas de plástico. Fico com um conjunto de fita adesiva muito originais. Gosto mesmo muito delas. Tenho-as usado nos meus art journal ou planner!

Pocket Art Card - my process


Hi guys! Today I want to share with you a quickly step by step of my PAC and Dare 2B of my last week from my UnPlanner.
I'm loving to do this tiny pockets art cards, because is a little space were you can make some art without spending to much time on it!



When I'm painting I sometimes have on my table a sheet of kitchen vegetable paper (like your deli paper), where I  will  put scraps of paint, clean my brushes and sometimes I doodle on it.
So I grabbed on one of this papers and used one flower that I had drawn there. 


In both cards I gave some strokes of blue! The challenge was to make shades of one color. So, I used the same colors on both cards and used acrylic in shades of blue!
I collage some papers and then and some strokes of white paint.

I cut my flower in half's and collage on the both cards.
I added the last notes with some  words and dots.






I made a paper ribbon and stitched on my PAC.

"Retiro na Cidade"

No último sábado decorreu em Coimbra "Retiro Na Cidade" dinamizdo pelo P. Nuno Branco integrado nas atividades do CUMN. Uma dia dedicado ao desenho, mas não só. A reflexão, a leitura, o olhar, a atenção seguiram-nos a cada desenho feito. 
Um retiro na cidade para olhar a cidade, ou por onde fomos guiados, de modo diferente.
Um dia muito bem passado e uma forma muito sentida de fazer o desenho. Dar-lhe um sentido, refletir, ligá-lo com algo. 
Gostei muito e espero que se repita. 
Deixo-vos os meus desenhos. Nada de especial. Mas que me deram um gosto enorme fazer e fizeram um grande sentido!! :)

Last Saturday took place in Coimbra "Retreat In Town". A day dedicated to the sketch, but not only. The reflection, reading, looking, attention followed us every sketch we made.
A retreat in the city to look at the city, with reflection, with meaning!!

I leave you my drawings. Nothing special. But they gave me a great pleasure to do and did a great sense !! :)

masking tape feathers #1


I love feathers! Love to collect them, love to draw them and create feathers from paper or masking tape was one of my recent discovers! They are lovely to incorporate on your artjournals or in sckrapbooking pages. They make a beautiful embellishment! 
Today I want to share with you some feathers made from masking tape from hardware stores! :) 

Tenho un fascínio por penas!!! Adoro desenhá-las, de coleciná-las, de as usar como carimbo!!!! Recentemente comecei a fazê-las a partir de fita adesiva, daquela que se usa para selar os rodapés quando se pintam as casas!  
Hoje deixo-vos esta linda maneira de fazer penas coloridas, que podem usar nos vossos artjpurnals, nas páginas de sckrapbooking.





Put adhesive tape on the plastic. Give some strokes with watercolors or acrylic paint. After it dry, in the middle put a thin wire. Fold the tape in half. Cut the shape of the feather.
Draw with a pen and make some cuts to resemble a feather. As it has wire you can make the shape of the feather make it more real and dimensional!!

Colocar a fita cola num plástico. Dar umas pinceladas com aguarelas ou tinta acrílica. Depois de seca colocar no meio um arame fino. Dobrar a fita adesiva ao meio. Recortar a forma da pena.
Desenhar com uma caneta e dar uns recortes para se parecer com uma pena. Como tem arame podemos dobrar a pena para lhe dar dimensão e torná-la mais real!!















Take a Look at another happy project with masking Tape!
