Rusty fish


This project I made for my home. I really like marine decorations and I think it will look great on my wall. I used Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folder "Lumber" and Finnabair rust pastes to make this planks background.

Time machine - steampunk notebook with MitForm

Hello friends!

Today I have for you new mixed media project - a notebook with new amazing metals from MitForm Castings! The new things are beautiful and I can't wait to show you more project with these.

I used the ordinary notebook as a base. All the rests are metal and resin elements covered with rust pastes and color pigments. One of the elements of the background is a piece of metallic paper, treated with Sizzix embossing folder - Foundry. It perfectly pretends to be a metal plate.

Beach Wall Hanging - for Graphic 45


Today I have a project for Graphic 45 April challenge - Mix & Match. I love the marine atmosphere so I chose two collections in this type - By the Sea and Sun Kissed. These collections match not only thematically but also in color. I love both, and the "By the Sea" collection in Deluxe Collector's Edition is a real treasure.

I have prepared a marine banner for you, completely without any media or complicated products or techniques. I only splashed it in white, you can easily do it with white ink or diluted paint.

To make the project rich, cut out many elements from paper. Use stickers, die-cuts, pieces of string and gauze. Stick everything with foam tape or cardboard, then the work will have depth, it will be more interesting. I also distressed the edges of each element so that they do not melt with the background. The last accent are the white pebbles that. Is important to choose glue, that will be transparent when dry. Then it will look more natural and aesthetic.

Reach for your favorite collections and take part in this challenge. Try to use the less obvious connections. And if you were inspired by my project - act! I have a movie for you that will help you in this.

Hopes and Desires - Finnabair Art Recipe - April 2019

today I have a project for Finnabair Team new challenge!
Please join us and be the next guest designer.

Colours of March Art Recipe:
cobalt, emerald, silver

Art Basics - White Gesso
Art Basics - Soft Gloss Gel
Art Alchemy - Waxes
Art Ingredients - Glitter
Art Alchemy - Liquid Acrylics

For this month Art Recip,e I've made this bright tag. It does not have many embellishments. The most important thing for me here is the background on which I glued several resin stars from the moulds. I painted the whole with white gesso and then I added color with liquid acrylic paints. During painting, I used a lot of water. I sprayed the paints to achieve the watercolor effect. 

When the paint dried, I used gesso again to accentuate all the edges and details. Finally, it's time for glitter. I glued it with a soft gel and left it to dry thoroughly. I wanted to hide the glitter a little bit using white gesso, so that its glow gently pierced through the white layer. Thanks to this, it better suits the entire project.

I hope you feel inspired and try to make something for our challenge!
