Family Memories - for Warsztat-24

dzisiaj chciałam Wam pokazać projekt, który przygotowałam w ramach współpracy ze sklepem Warsztat-24

today I wanted to show you the project that I prepared in cooperation with the Warsztat-24 store.

Na moją pierwszą inspirację przygotowałam layout z przesłodkiej kolekcji Piątku Trzynastego "Cute & Co.". Nigdy nie byłam fanką wycinania, ale tutaj wręcz nie mogłam się oprzeć aby nie wykorzystać właśnie takich elementów. Papiery wręcz do tego zachęcają.

For my first inspiration I made a layout from the sweet collection of Piątek Trzynastego "Cute & Co.". I've never been a fan of cutting, but here I couldn't resist to use such elements. This papers encourage to this :)

W tym projekcie użyłam starego zdjęcia, na którym jestem z rodzicami, często pojawia się ono w moich pracach, a do tych papierów pasuje wręcz idealnie. Oprócz powycinanych elementów użyłam przeróżnych tekturek, kwiatów a także mojego ulubionego białego sznurka. On pasuje zawsze i wszędzie :) Każda warstwa jest oddzielona kawałkiem tekturki, dzięki czemu praca jest mocno przestrzenna.

In this project I used the old picture, where I'm with my parents, it often appears in my artworks, and it fits perfectly with these papers. In addition to the cut out elements I used a variety of cardboard, flowers and my favorite white string. It fits always and everywhere :) Each layer is separated by a piece of cardboard and the layout is very spacious.

Enjoy! :)

Follow Your Heart - scrapbooking layout with video tutorial

today I have for you a very colorful, layered layout, for which I also prepared a video tutorial. I hope that I will inspire you to your own experiments with colors.

In this project I used colors from Lindy's January challenge. You still have time to join us! 

I decorated the frames and borders with the hot embossing and beautiful Lindy's mists. All details you'll see on the video (below).

Be Courageous! - mixedmedia canvas for EgoCraft

This is my next artwork for EgoCraft. Today I have a project in which I wanted to show you how to use chipboards leftovers. As I mentioned once - don't throw them away! In mixedmedia projects such shapes are perfect. Not only as hidden layers that give us a 3D effect, but also as visible elements of our composition.

The whole composition is arranged on a round painting board, on which I glue the next layers of chipboard leftovers (mainly after Christmas baubles). When I achieved the intended effect, I covered everything with the black gesso. I added a few metal elements, paper flowers and lots of mists and paints :) I used Art Alchemy Paints from Finnabair and Lindy's sprays.

A great method of decorating the chipboards is also hot embossing. Thanks to it, they acquire a unique character. That's how I decorated the frame from the "Sea Stories" collection and my favorite background from the "At the Royal Court" collection. It is also very interesting to dissolve the embossing powder in a few randomly selected places, here I used white powder to lighten the composition a bit.

Limited edition - mixed media canvas - Finnabair CT

Hello friends,
Today I have for you a very simple project which was so much fun to work on! You'll find here a picture of my beloved dog - easy to guess that's why this project fell so close to my heart! :)

As you will see in video tutorial below, I built the whole diagonal composition on a canvas board and I created my background starting with a few chipboard shapes from 7 Dots Studio and Art Basics Modeling Paste. This is basically a textural paste that is used to add dimension to your projects, but it can also be used to glue various elements and works great as a base for custom made paints or pastes (simply mix with your favorite paint, pigment or ink).

To add even more interest, I also used another kind of paste that gives a beautiful rough effect - Stone Effect Paste. In this case I only chose the Pumice one and simply applied it with a paintbrush, not being too precise. When you apply the paste it doesn't look very interesting at first, only after the addition of colors all the textures are highlighted and look amazing.

This time I didn't use any papers or flowers, my embellishments are only Mechanicals and transparent Art Pebbles. First, I gently matted these elements with White Gesso so that they would better take the color medium in the next step. I simply sprinkled some pigments and misted them with a little bit of water creating beautiful color stains. I used Primary Elements Artist Pigments - they come in lovely saturated colors, so just a pinch is often enough to get a stunning effect. You can also mix them with water and use as sprays.

When everything was completely dry, I added delicate accents with Art Alchemy Waxes. All the raised 3D elements, in particular Art Pebbles, look so great after such treatment with the beautiful Waxes.

To make the canvas not so "clean" I added a little bit of the Rust Paste.
Check how brilliant it looks when you spray it with water - a very convincing rust effect you won't be able to resist!

And finally - I just can't do without some splashes of white ink. You can also use acrylic paint (e.g. Snow White Impasto) or watered down White Gesso.

Please feel free to watch my video and see my whole creative process step by step!

I encourage you to reach for family photos, to capture your memories in all kinds of artistic projects. Artworks like this have the most emotional meaning and are always one of a kind. And remember - your beloved pets are your family members too and also look great in such projects!
