Listen to your heart - video tutorial

Hello,
today I have for you new video tutorial for 7 Dots Studio Design Team.

I used wooden base to make this simple tag. The main decoration of my project are the word stickers. I think that thanks to them I got a very original background.

You can watch the whole process on my video (link below).

Art is My Place… - Prima Art Recipe

Hello,
today I have for you new project for April Prima Art Recipe.
Our theme this month was "Attic Findings" and the main products - Patina Effect Pastes + Mechanicals.


I really love creating my mixed media projects on wooden substrates. I can go crazy with paints and various media and nothing bad happens with my base. This time I chose a plywood butterfly. For a project like this, you can really use so many things. These may be some flea market trinkets, "attic findings" like old, broken jewelry, watches or watch parts, buttons, or any pretty trinkets that grab your attention. Surely each of you will find something like this at home :)


First, I glued all embellishments with Heavy Body Gel. I mostly used the new Mechanicals - Vintage Snowflakes, Winter Trinkets and Lotus flower. I also added some Art Stones and Mini Art Stones - they make every project have this unique vintage character.



After all things were added, it was time to use Patina Effect Paste. The effect is just amazing! We can easily transform any object into an item that looks as if it was found at the attic or sunk for long years in the sea.

To soften my butterfly a bit, I used Heavy White Gesso. I used a dry brush and a very small amount of gesso, only to highlight the details, not paint them. I'm not a fan of saturated greens, so now the results looks much more satisfying for me. Finally, I added clear Art Pebbles and a little bit of Glitter to this beautiful Lotus flower.





Prima Products: Patina Effect Paste 964351; Art Basics: Heavy White Gesso 961374, Modeling Paste 961350, Soft Matte Gel 961428, Super Heavy Gel 963040; Mechanicals: Metal Lotus 964382, Winter Trinkets 964405, Vintage Snowflakes 964399, Bottle Caps 960391; Art Ingredients: Glitter Set - Luminous 961596, Glitter Set - Abloom 961619, Mini Art Stones 963712, Art Stones 963705, Mélange Art Pebbles 963323, Ingvild Bolme - Street Signs 892166

Always Remember - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

Hello friends,
it's time for my new project for 7 Dots Studio

I wanted to make something vintage and rich in diverse media. I used paints, waxes, and basics media like gesso and modeling paste, to achieve the effect you see.

7 Dots Studio has many interesting stencils, this time I reached for Letters Stencil from Writer’s Block collection. This perfectly complements my background.

I also used other elements from this collection – word stickers, die-cut elements and papers. Its colors are rather neutral, thanks to the adding paints can be matched with many projects.

Time Flies - mixed media frame for Finnabair Creative Team

Hello friends,
this is my new project for Finnabair Creative Team.

I realy love to find new ways to use ordinary things. This time a folding wooden ruler caught my eye. I'm sure you can easily find something like that in a local store or maybe in your toolbox. 

I used this wooden measuring tape to shape a frame and have a great base for my whole project. You can watch the entire creative process in my video below.


I painted the mould elements with Art Alchemy Sparks and rubbed with Art Alchemy Waxes. This combination gives an extraordinary effect and ordinary paper clay magically turns into a beautiful relief.



I wanted this project to be rich, full of details and layers. I wanted my piece to be complex and make the viewers discover something new at every glance.

Before I started to work, I prepared a lot of items I liked and set myself a task of putting them all in that frame. And I made it. :)



Why I chose "Time Flies" for the title of my project?
Because I see here a little girl, but her look is very serious. And this reminds me of how fast this time flies... How fast we grow up and leave childhood and childhood dreams behind.


Maybe my canvas will inspire you to create along and express your long forgotten dreams with paints and paper. Or perhaps you may even return to your childhood dreams and try to fulfill them...

I wish you that with all my heArt. :)

Round Love - on-line class with Finnabair

Hello!
Today I have for you a very special project. 

For many years I dreamed of taking part in Finnabair classes. So far I haven't had the opportunity, but my dreams are still the same. 

And now, thanks to Finnabair and Everything Art, we all have the chance to try on-line classes! This is amazing occasion to meet Anna "eye to eye", in our home, our craftroom, and experience very exciting journey.

I highly recommend IMAGINE class to everyone.
Both beginners and experienced will find something for them. You'll create a complete project, learn many tips and tricks and spend a wonderful, creative time.



And this is my interpretation of Finnabair's project. 
I used small round canvas and almost everything I had on my desk… ;)

Make a wish - mixed media canvas for 7 Dots Studio DT

Hello friends,
I wasn't here for a while, but I'm coming back with new energies and hope that spring will help me with all my plans. 


Here you have one of my newest project - mixed media canvas for 7 Dots Studio. I used one of oulatest collection – Cotton Candy Dreams.

In this project I wanted to use many paints and other mediums, so I started with canvas, instead of paper. I built layers of the composition with paper straws, gauze and cardboard. And I made a lot of them :)

Add-ons from all collections are just perfect for making some final touches on projects. I used tags and word stickers to make my canvas complete.
