Little Things - scrapbooking layout for I-Kropka - with video tutorial

I had a real pleasure to make a few projects for polish chipboards manufacture I-Kropka.

Today I present you the first one - classic layout, with really little amount of medias :) It's main decoration is a really big frame from the collection "You are lovely", perfect for such works, where we can expose it entirely, without cutting. Layout has many layers, splashes, my favorite caboshons and of course twine.

I used new amazing collection from 7 Dots Studio - Dreamscapes.

And video - enjoy!

Remember the now - canvas for 7 Dots Studio

I want to show you my new project – mixed media canvas with little industrial look. I was inspired by new 7 Dots Studio collection – Hazy Days. I fell in love with these colors and tried to make them a part of this project.

The main motif is the pattern from the Geometry Stencil, from the Dreamscapes collection. I made it with modeling paste, covered with black gesso and added colors with amazing waxes. My canvas is very dimensional – I used papers from small pad and tags to make layers, all completed with bulbs and gears.

Art is My Place… - Prima Art Recipe

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
