Junk Journal - The Deserted Island Challenge

I decided to participate of a challenge called "The Deserted Island", proposed by Nik the Booksmith on her Youtube Channel.
This challenge consists in making a junk journal using a super limited list of materials. 
We can use 4 "givens" and 4 "choices". 
The 4 givens:
- Paper (I chose coffee stained paper)
- Scissors
- Needle and thread
- Glue (I chose white glue)
The 4 choices:
- Cardboard (recycled) for the cover
- Paintbrush
- Ink
- Brush pen

It was really fun doing this journal!
I created a story about a italian couturier who made paper doll's dresses...
I went crazy with the elements I used!

 If you want to see more, you can watch the video at my Youtube Channel.

I also created some elements for who wants to download and use!

I hope you like my journal and have fun with the downloads... 



From now, videos in English!

Hello everyone! I'm really happy to announce that I'm starting a new Youtube channel, in English!

I have several videos about tutorials, recycling, simple drawing techniques and a lot of stuff, but all those in italian - and I thought: I have an amazing blog since 2012 in english... why 
don't create videos in english too? Well, is a big challenge! As you know, english is not my first language! Writing is not a problem, but talking (without practicing) is kind of hard! I had to learn spanish, some catalan and now italian. Is difficult to manage those languages together!

Well, I'll try. Just because I believe that we have to share beauty, love and art with the world.

So..... this is Marcelo:

If you have an youtube account, I'll be really glad to have you as my follower - I want to hear from you what do you want to see, discuss, learn... Let's do it together, ok?

Thank you soooo much!

XOXO, Marcelo ",


Mlle. Printemps by Marcelo

This is Mlle. Printemps, a little 18th century lady who loves play with flowers and her love letters.

Her dress is full of flowers and arabescs.. also we can see lovely phrases about love, emotions and, of course, spring and flowers!

She's really romantic and fancy...

And the hairdo? An amazing and large royal hair sculpture! Full of flowers, of course!

The joy of spring, the beauty of flowers and the romantic atmosphere of those letters...
This is her world!

I hope you like her... <3


Birdcages by Marcelo...

I love birdcages as a decoration element - BUT always without birds!

Some time ago I made some birdcages to post as a tutorial at my Facebook page.

I want to show you guys those birdcages... :D

They are really easy to make: we just need some iron wire, a piece of wood for the base and some nails to fix the iron wire!

We can use all your imagination! Create little castels, little houses...

I hope you guys like them.... <3


"Marcelino" for the Easter

I received an amazing and special gift this Easter:


A sweet and magical sculpture made by my partner, Michele, a great italian scupltor!
He tried to "translate" in this sculpture my soul, my joy and the child who lives inside my dreams...

Happy Easter, everybody!
