Let's get together - mixed media canvas

dzisiaj przygotowałam dla Was mediowy blejtram z przepięknych papierów "Hello Beautiful" Piątek Trzynastego. Ta kolekcja składa się nie tylko z cudnych arkuszy, ale ma również mnóstwo dodatków. Tutaj wykorzystałam małe i duże banerki.

today I have for you a mixed media canvas from the beautiful papers "Hello Beautiful" Piątek Trzynastego. This collection consists not only of wonderful pages, but also has a lot of add-ons. Here I used small and large banners.

Jak widzicie, skusiłam się również na wycięcie całkiem sporej ilości elementów. Świetnie wzbogacają kompozycję, są idealne do tworzenie warstw.
Tło mojego blejtramu przygotowałam za pomocą akwareli Twinkling H2O's. Kilka chlapnięć pasujących do papierów jest doskonałym uzupełnieniem projektu. 
Zrobiłam również kilka malutkich foamiranowych kwiatuszków, które pasują zawsze i wszędzie :)

As you can see, I cut out quite a lot of elements. They enrich the composition and are perfect for creating layers.
I prepared the background with Twinkling H2O's watercolors. They made the perfect match with the papers. I have also made some tiny foamiran flowers that fit anywhere, anytime :)

Cabinet of Curiosities - Finnabair Creative Team

sometimes someone asks me why I make this type of artworks - without any specific purpose and not useful for anything practical. Have you ever been asked that too? :)
Why? Well, I must admit that for me it's a strange question. Art doesn't have to be useful or practical! We create to express ourselves artistically, to get our hands dirty, to play with new paints and products, or to simply have fun.And that's why this project was created.

I made my own cabinet of curiosities with a selection of my favorite elements, symbols and little trinkets. For me, each of them is meaningful in some way. There is a feather here, a star, and a seahorse - a piece of the sea world that I love so much. I also had to add my favorite embellishments that add so much character to my artworks - all sizes of Art Stones, mysterious little bottles and simple white string.

In this piece I also included my favorite colors and textures.
I've recently rediscovered the beauty of Art Extravagance Graphite Paste and now you can find it in almost each of my projects. :) It doesn't really matter that it's black because once it's dry, you can easily give it any color you like and still enjoy the textural effect. I used it through the 'Bubbles' stencil.

I painted my main embellishments with the gold rust from Rust Effect Paste set. This is my favorite shade of yellow and it worked perfectly in this project. Doesn't it beautifully contrast with Art Alchemy Metallique Emerald Green?! 
I also added some Art Alchemy Waxes here and there. I used the Vintage Gold one which beautifully highlighted the details and gave this frame a more noble character. 

This project is filled with all kinds of my must-haves.
There are products that I always have at hand and without them my project somehow seem incomplete :) I definitely need to have Heavy White Gesso, Art Stones, gauze and white ink or paint for accents and splatters. They add this final little "something" so that I can feel the project is finished.

I made a video especially for you so if you'd like to create your own "Cabinet of curiosities", you can see my process and feel inspired.

With my project today I'd like to remind you that whatever you create and why, remember that first of all, you create for yourself. Experiment, don't be afraid of new things, listen to your own voice, don't think, just act! Don't think from the beginning about how your project will be judged. Just have fun and love what you create!

Curiously - wooden house for Lindy's Gang - video tutorial


Today I have a mixed media project for you built on a wooden house. It’s full of structures and tiny details and colored with Lindy’s gorgeous sprays. I used resin shapes for this, but paper clay, old jewelry parts, buttons, unnecessary metal elements would be equally good! It depends only on your imagination.
I made a video - you'll find it below :)

Here you can see all the details. The more elements you add, the more interesting effect you’ll create.

Video - enjoy!
