Fairy-tale box with album - for Graphic 45

Today I come to you with the next project for Graphic 45. I used ivory Mixed Media Box to make this mini-album. I don’t have enough perseverance to make large albums for dozens of photos, and these boxes and cards are perfect for me. Small box to close a beautiful memory inside. Today I reached for photos of my friend's daughter. And when I think about little girls, the Fairie Dust collection appears right in front of my eyes. It is ideal for this purpose. Beautiful, cheerful colors, beautiful patterns and of course lots of fairies.

I covered the box with paper, decorated with a lot of flowers and of course a fairy. An interesting element is a colorful window. I made them from thick foil (you can use, for example, stamps packaging), which I colored with alcohol inks. It gave a beautiful, watercolor effect.

In this box I closed four cards, their main element is the photo. I also added flowers, a piece of string. I wanted to show you how easy, but effective, to make such cards. You don’t need many embellishments or special skills to decorate your photos wonderfully. I have a short movie for you.


And if you would like to make a box with me, I invite you to a longer video. I hope that I inspired you to create your own albums. If you don’t have perseverance for big projects, just like me, start with such small ones. Good luck!

Be Authentic - tag for Retro Kraft Shop

dzisiaj mam dla Was mały tag, z dużą ilością warstw. Bazę zembossowałam za pomocą folderu 3D Sizzix - Mechanics, a następnie podkreśliłam wypukłości tuszami Distress. Użyłam zarówno tradycyjnego tuszu jak i Oxide. Dodałam jeszcze trochę wosków i kontrastowy kolor tuszu alkoholowego. Polecam Wam takie zabawy z mediami, obserwacje, jak ze sobą reagują, można dzięki temu osiągnąć naprawdę ciekawe efekty.

today I have a small tag for you, with lots of layers. I embossed the base with Sizzix 3D embossing folder - Mechanics, and then highlighted the details with Distress inks. I used both -  traditional and Oxide ink. I added some waxes and a contrasting color of alcoholic ink. I encourage you to play with the media, observations, how they react with each other, you can achieve really interesting results.

Nie każdy projekt, który robicie, musi być użyteczny. Bawcie się, eksperymentujcie, nie wszystko musi być robione "po coś". Niech to będzie dla waszej przyjemności, dla relaksu, dla nauki. Sięgajcie po małe formy, dzięki którym później łatwiej będzie Wam rozwinąć się na dużym projekcie. 

Not every project must be useful. Have fun, experiment, not everything has to be done "for something". Let it be for your pleasure, for relaxation, for learning. Reach for small forms, thanks to which later it will be easier for you to develop on a large project.

Sparkling box - July's Prima & Finn Art Recipe

Hello friends,
this month Art Recipe is about Finnabair's new products - gorgeous Unicorn Opal Magic paint set, sparkly Melange Art Pebbles, and amazing Texture Fantasy Pastes!

For this inspiration I have made a small, but rich in media and embellishments, box. I used the black ATC box, which is thick and can hold out a lot of paints and other water-based products. 

This project is really simple - try it! I covered the whole box and resin shapes with white gesso, and then I added the rest of the media. To achieve this unusual structure I used a new Texture Fantasy paste, which, in addition to this grainy texture, has amazing colors! I also used new Opal Magic paints - each one is an amazing color that gives the project beautiful flashes. To add more bling to my project, I used beautiful new art pebbles, that shine with a lot of crystals.
