Leave Ordinary Behind, CSI145

Hi everybody! Glad to be back, I have been very busy designing classes to teach and thus have actively neglected my blogging to say the least. 
So unto some work, I have done this weeks case for CSI, it's such a beautiful inspiration you may not want to miss this one, a bit of mixed media, stamps and such wonderful details to put into evidence, like floral patterns, wings, polka dots...
there is a shimmery effect in the top half of my page in aqua but after photographing in the sun I can't barely see it...

wings as my evidence, it suits my baby girl so well

a letter for her who is so far out from ordinary, don't you just love this quote from one of Tim Holtz, stamp sets!


CSI 134 Happy

 I am loooving this month, the colors are just right up my alley!!! and my color scheme is all there! 

For my evidence I chose the sun and some stitching
for my testimony I chose and outdoor activity
in it I talk about how I knew the minute she discovered the underwater world of snorkeling she would be hooked!
Nothing beats seeing a real aquarium next to you, the coral and all those tropical fishes together is out of this world great.  This particular day we encountered among blue and yellow tangs a school of calamari they were purple with turquoise shimmery turquoise on top, we were in awe and almost crying because we didn't bring the camera.  Anyway it's a memory she will have forever!
I don't mean to make you dizzy but I used the bubbles to write my journaling!

and I took serius liberties this week with the sketch, Em I hope you like it!
here's the case and sketch!

hope to see you in the gallery!


CSI 133 # Today

It's Friday and that means a new case is up at CSI, come investigate!

For my testimony I chose the inspiration word delight

for my evidence I chose to tie something, use ribbon, polka dots, watercolor background

for my scheme I used gray on my alphas and photos, black on my stamping and journaling and the pink, orange with paint and white as my background!
and the absolutely inspiring palette
Hope to see you in the gallery!



Happy Sunday! I just got back from Utah and I found there this weeks theme at Our Beautiful World: Time!
This clock has been on the St since pioneer time in the 1800's  when its movement was done by water, how awesome is that!

We hope you can share with us your time all around the world @



Happy Birthday Myriam!

I know we are far form the 12th already but my BFF was celebrating in New York so I had to wait until today to give her present.  Some details!
a small canvas circle, perfect to fit this cute fashionista!

after inking

fit for its bezel

ready to paint!

and of course it needed to be sealed so she can wash her hands if she has to!

I hope you enjoyed this jewelry making session as much as she did wearing hers!
♥ u girl!



Mixing it up, Bloom Girls Sharon + Gardenia!

Hi! I admit it I'm obsessed...I wanted to play with the big girls and now I have them so what's a girl to do.  This is my third step by step, don't forget to come visit my other  2 new tutorials!
Today I am sharing a journal page for the first time, it's kinda on the exaggerated side since the size of it is 
21"x12" so I can't drag it everywhere but I do enjoy doodling and playing in it because of its size!
 Today I decided to play with my dearest friends over at CCCB where Anna is hosting a chipboard challenge.  I know I never shared a canvas I made with the first Bloom Girls but I had fashioned her with cb earrings.  You see we puertorricans girls are very into our jewelry, we just plain LOVE it, you hear ♥♥♥ it!!!
So I decided I would fashion cb jewelry again.

here's my jewelry, finished of course with pearls and just a touch of Inka gold!

 it looks ravishing on her I say!
 see isn't it sweet over her roses dress?
 and I just love that it goes off the page, I am thinking maybe she can be a sketch and I can do her for reals on a canvas...she would look really pretty on a wall!
a fantastic quote chosen by Tusia over at Scrap Around the World

And "quenepas" are in season!!!!!!!! yummy, yummy, waiting a whole year to eat them!!!!
the mood board again!
I took inspiration from the quote and the colors
I hope you enjoyed it and thanks again for visiting!



Woodlands OBW

Hi everyone, happy Sunday to you wherever you are, today's word at OBW is brought to you by Ros an it is woodland.
I'd thought about doing a different take about it, since mangrove forests in my view qualifies as woodlands!
Every Spring we head over to the South  West of the island off shore the town of Guánica to a small cay named Aurora, known by the locals as Gilligan's Island.  This small cay is covered almost to its entirety on mangroves, the grab on even to the shore as they are able to breath under water, lucky them!
I always marvel at their magnificent roots, at their "breather straw like roots" and their capacity to adapt and live in truly harsh {and salty} conditions.

This photo is part of my pieces on Google Earth , you can check my site at Panoramio, it is also one of the pieces chosen by the Puerto Rico Tourism company for their Gallery in Old San Juan
As you can see there's no sea shore here only channels where you can blissfully kayak and snorkel, it is amazingly beautiful to spend a day here!
Hope your travels one day take you up to my beautiful shores, 'til then
