Just create! - Finnabair Creative Team

Hello friends!

I made this project just for fun. When I cleaned up, I found a cardboard frame with cogs and decided to use it somehow. I wanted to calm down and turn off after Christmas madness, and spend a moment alone with myself in my studio. This is the best relaxation for me.

As you will see on the video, I have protected the cardboard base with Impasto paints, not with white gesso as usual. Acrylic paints are ideal if you don't want the background to be just white.

I also played with structures, using one of the rust effect paste. I really like this delicate, grainy effect. To make it more visible, I emphasized it with light paint and gesso. I also added some color to my project using sprays and alcohol inks. Each of them reacts differently, even on the same surface, and I like such unexpected results.

As for the embellishments, one of the main decorations is a large metal star. It was supposed to be part of a Christmas artwork, but unfortunately, it did not wait. However, I think that in such a project it worked perfectly well. I also used several metals from the extensive Mechanicals collection and one of my favorite recently - Art Daily lines. You will find there photos and sentences that you can always and everywhere adjust. I love it for that!

Please feel free to inspire with my video tutorial.

If I had wings...

na początek nowego roku przygotowałam dla Was inspirację z moimi ulubionymi produktami. Znajdziecie tutaj i tusze Distress Oxide, tusze alkoholowe, jak również najnowsze metalowe elementy z MitForm.

for the beginning of the new year, I made an inspiration with my favorite products. You will find Distress Oxide inks here, alcohol inks and the latest metal elements from MitForm.

W tym projekcie użyłam również cudownych stempli Tima Holtza - Entomology. Razem z wykrojnikami Sizzix to duet doskonały, szczególnie dla kogoś kto nie lubi wycinać takich drobiazgów samodzielnie. Owady pokolorowałam tuszami Distress Oxide, a skrzydełka pokryłam preparatem Glossy Accents. 

In this project, I also used the wonderful Tim Holtz stamps - Entomology. Together with the Sizzix dies, it is a perfect duo, especially for someone who does not like to cut out such things with scissors. I colored the insects with Distress Oxide inks, and the wings were covered with Glossy Accents.
