Tag Vento d'autunno - Fall wind tag

Nel creare questa tag ho immaginato una persona seduta su una panchina al parco intenta a rileggere delle vecchie lettere d'amore ingiallite. Ci sono foglie cadute attorno alla panchina e lungo i sentieri. Qualcuna cade sul pacco di lettere, altre volano via portate dal vento. Vola anche una pagina di un giornale sfuggita a qualche altro lettore nel parco.

While creating this tag I imagined a person sitting on a park bench and reading some old yellowed love letters. There are some leaves around the bench and along the paths. The wind makes other leaves fly away. Also the page of a newspaper flies away, maybe another reader in the park lost it.







Per prima cosa ho timbrato il testo della lettera manoscritta e ho tagliato questo cartoncino e quello di base della tag. Le lettere, la scrittura a mano e gli alfabeti sono una delle mie passioni, come potete vedere in molte vecchie creazioni. Poi ho invecchiato i bordi, ho incollato il nastrino di pizzo e i fiorellini.

First I stamped the handwritten letter and cut this cardstock and the tag. I am really fond of letters, handwriting and alphabets, as you can see in many of my old crafts. Then I distressed the edges, I glued the lace and the tiny flowers.

                                       

Ho tagliato un cuore lungo e vi ho avvolto attorno del filo di rame.

I punched a long heart and wrapped it with some copper wire.



Ho tagliato a mano la bustina e tagliato le farfalle. Queste ultime poi le ho ricoperte con della pasta che poi diventa trasparente e che lascia solo un velo glitterato. Ho tagliato a mano la bustina.

I handcut the envelope and punched the butterflies. I covered the butterflies with a paste that then turns transparent and glittered. I handcut the small envelope.


Ho tagliato a mano due piccolissime tag e le ho decorate usando uno stencil a fiori e della pasta color rame.

I handcut two tiny tags and decorated them with a mask and some copper paste.


Ho perforato delle foglioline, le ho invecchiate e ne ho tracciato le venature. Poi le ho incollate su un filo di rame. Ho ripreso la tecnica che avevo usato nella tag La vie en rose.

I punched some leaves, I distressed them and made the veins. Then I glued them on a copper wire. I used again the technique I used in La vie en rose tag.



Ho riciclato e invecchiato un pezzetto di giornale.

I recycled and distressed a small piece of newspaper.



Per questa tag su un amore perduto mi ha ispirata anche una bellissima canzone degli Abba, "SOS".

This tag reminding a lost love was also inspired to me by a song I love so much, 'SOS' by the great Abba.

Bouquet di feltro - Felt bouquet

Una decina di giorni fa ho finalmente consegnato un lavoro che mi ha tenuta impegnata nelle ultime settimane. È un bouquet per una sposa che voleva qualcosa di originale e a cui erano piaciuti i fiori di feltro che ho realizzato qualche mese fa. Così le ho proposto alcune varianti ed ecco qui il risultato: un coloratissimo bouquet che a fine cerimonia la sposa lancerà in cielo!

About ten days ago I finally completed a craft I have worked at during the last weeks. It is a bouquet for a bride who wanted something original and who liked the felt flowers I made a few months ago. So, I suggested her some changes and here's my output, a multicoloured bouquet that, after the ceremony, the bride will throw up to the sky!










Per fare gli steli ho usato del filo di ferro verde, poi li ho ricoperti con del nastro verde e decorati con un fiocco di nastro di pizzo.

To make the stem I used green wire, then I covered them with a green ribbon and decorated with a lace bow.



Le differenze con i fiori di feltro del vecchio post sono queste:

Nuovi fiori:
-Formati da quattro o cinque parti
-Parti a forma di petali e rotonde (normali e scalloped)
-Uno o più bottoni e perle
-Cotone mouliné
-Presenza della foglia e dello stelo
-Taglio preciso con Big Shot e fustelle

Vecchi fiori:
-Formati da tre parti
-Solo cinque tipi di petali
-Un solo bottone normale
-Cotone comune
-Assenza della foglia e dello stelo
-Tagliati a mano

Poi c'è qualche piccola differenza nei punti che ho ricamato e nella forma di alcuni petali.



These are the differences among these flowers and the ones of the old post.

New flowers:
-Four or five parts
-Petals and circles (normal and scalloped)
-One or two buttons or pearls
-Mouliné cotton
-Leaf and stem
-Accurate cut with Big shot and dies

Old flowers:
-Three parts
-Only five kinds of petals
-Only one normal button
-Common cotton
-No leaf and stem
-Handcut

Also the kind of sewing and some shapes of petals have little differences.



Ora vi mostro i singoli fiori.

Now I'm going to show you the flowers one by one.

Vi lascio due citazioni e due canzoni che si collegano al tema di questa creazione, l'amore.
Mi piacerebbe che leggeste una poesia di Pablo Neruda che adoro, "Qui ti amo", tratta da "Venti poesie d'amore e una canzone disperata". A questo link trovate la traduzione di Giuseppe Bellini, docente di letteratura ispanoamericana e uno dei massimi esperti di Neruda.
L'altra citazione è di Gibran, il poeta libanese a cui mi sono ispirata anche per il layout "Quando l'amore vi chiama".

"... L'amore non dona che se stesso e nulla prende se non da se stesso.
L'amore non possiede né vorrebbe essere posseduto; poiché l'amore basta all'amore.
Quando amate non dovreste dire: "Dio è nel mio cuore", ma piuttosto "Io sono nel cuore di Dio".
E non pensate di poter voi condurre l'amore, poiché è l'amore che, se vi trova degni, condurrà voi.
..."

Le due canzoni sono entrambe cantate da Noa, una delle più belle voci di questi tempi. La prima è l'"Ave Maria" di Schubert, che spesso viene suonata ai matrimoni e quindi si collega direttamente al bouquet di questo post. La seconda canzone è "La vita è bella", che qui Noa canta a un concerto al Colosseo. Al pianoforte c'è Nicola Piovani (Oscar 1999), il genio che ha scritto questa musica e tante splendide colonne sonore.




I leave you two quotes and two songs related to the theme of this craft, love.
I would like you to read 'Here I love you' by the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, from the book 'Twenty love poems and a song of despair'.
The other quote is from Gibran, the Lebanese poet who inspired me when I created 'When love reckons to you' layout.

'... Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; for love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, 'God is in my heart', but rather, 'I am in the heart of God'.
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
...'

Both songs are featured by Noa, one of the most beautiful voices of this time. The first one is Schubert's 'Ave Maria', that is often played at marriage celebrations in Italy and has directly to do with the craft of this post. The second song is 'Life is beautiful', that Noa sang during a concert at Colosseo, in Rome. The man who played the piano is Nicola Piovani (Oscar prize 1999), the genius who wrote this music and many other wonderful soundtracks.
