Mixed Media Layout - Die with memories


I love making layouts and playing with More Than Words Challenge Blog. This month the word is Memories and the element is a frame. It is not easy for me to choose only one memory... cause I spend my life capturing moments, but I finally selected one photo of my last trip to Iceland.


Me encantan los layouts y jugar con el reto de More Than Words Challenge Blog. este mes la palabra es Memories (recuerdos) y el elemento es un marco. No es fácil para mí elegir sólo un recuerdo... porque paso mi vida capturando momentos, pero finalmente seleccioné una foto de mi último viaje a Islandia.

I created my background using Distress Oxides, combining different colors to obtain a beautiful chaos. I added some texture with light paste and a stencil, the used another stencil to leave some words in the paper. I altered a chipboard with rust effect pastes and glued it to the background together with some thread.

Creé mi fondo usando Distress Oxides, combinando diferentes colores para obtener un precioso caos. Añadí textura con pasta ligera y un stencil, y usé otro stencil para dejar algunas palabras en el papel. Alteré un chipboard con pasta de efecto oxidado y lo pegué al fondo junto con un poco de hilo.

I prepared some more chipboards, altering them with embossing powders to give them a dark metallic look. I also used the Distress Oxides to color some arrows and stamps to add interest to the background. I placed the photo on top and framed it with another chipboard.

Preparé más chipboards, alterándolos con polvos de embossing para darles un aspecto metálico oscuro. También usé los Distress Oxides para dar color a algunas flechas y sellos para añadir interés al fondo. Coloqué la foto encima y la enmarqué con otro chipboard.

Finally I added a sentiment: "die with memories, not dreams". It is a summary of how I live my live. I don't chase my dreams, I make them happen... and go to Iceland was a big dream came true, go the second time was just incredible.

Finalmente añadí una frase: "muere con recuerdos, no con sueños". Es un resumen de cómo vivo mi vida. Yo no persigo sueños, hago que sucedan... e ir a Islandia fue un gran sueño hecho realidad, ir la segunda vez fue simplemente increíble.
