Floral tag - for Graphic 45

Hello Friends!
Today I have for you quick and easy project - a floral tag. I used Large Kraft Tag as a base and few elements from Olde Curiosity Shoppe Deluxe Collector's Edition.

I made very rich and full of media background. This kraft tag is perfect for such purposes. I just covered it with clear gesso so it wouldn't soak or wave.

Mixed Media Envelopes - Finnabair Creative Team

today I'd like to show you a project that you can successfully use when you want to give someone a small gift, send wishes a gift card or just to make a sweet surprise for someone special on no occasion. :)

I decorated two envelopes, each in a different color palette. I used my favorite Policy Envelopes from Graphic 45.
You will see that the scheme is the same, only the choice of colors and embellishments makes us get two different artworks.

At the very beginning, I covered the surface with Clear Gesso to make it water resistant but not to cover the pretty paper pattern. Only after that I started adhering all the embellishments.
I used fabric flowers, gauze, cardboard and a lot of Mechanicals. I wanted my envelopes to be rich and full of details.

To give this project more interesting textures, here and there I added a little bit of Stone Effect Paste and the Dusty paste from the Rust Effect Paste Camouflage set.

I used alcohol inks that gave strong, intense colors and covered my surfaces with a delicate layer of White Gessoto soften the colors and give the whole a uniform character.

At the end I decided to add some light and shine to the envelopes and for this I used Art Alchemy Opal Magic paints. Their subtle colors beautifully highlighted clear Art Pebbles transforming them into beautiful pearls.

Here's my step by step video tutorial - feel inspired!

I hope you're feeling inspired and that you'll try creating such small gifts yourselves. It's a huge joy to make such rich little forms and I'm sure your recipient will totally love and appreciate them! ;)

See the World - for Retro Kraft Shop DT

dzisiaj mam dla Was mały projekt z wykorzystaniem niesamowitych stempli Tima Holtza z serii Inventor. Jak zwykle produkty Stampers Anonymous zachwycają mnóstwem detali i jakością, każdy najmniejszy szczegół odbija się idealnie.

today I have for you a small project using the amazing Inventor stamps from Tim Holtz. As always, Stampers Anonymous products delight with a lot of details and quality, every smallest detail is reflected perfectly.

Stemple odbiłam tuszem do embossingu na kartach z zestawu Collector Cards Layers i posypałam czarnym, drobniutkim pudrem do detali. Tak przygotowana odbitka wygląda naprawdę świetnie!

I made stamps with embossing ink on the Collector Cards Layers set and sprinkled with black, tiny powder for details. The stamp prepared in this way looks really great!

Całą kompozycję zbudowałam z tekturek i ich resztek. Zawsze zostawiam sobie te większe kawałki, które zostają po wyjęciu tekturek, są doskonałe do tworzenia warstw i do tego często mają ciekawe kształty. Między poszczególne warstwy powtykałam jeszcze metalowe kółeczka i drewniane guziki. Dzięki pokryciu ich gessem, świetnie przyjmują media i nie widać tego, że są wykonane z różnych materiałów. 

I built the entire composition from chipboards and their leftovers. I always leave these larger pieces, which remain after removing the chipboards, are perfect for creating layers and for often have interesting shapes. Between each layer, I added metal rings and wooden buttons. Thanks to covering them with gesso, they take all media well and you can't see that they are made of various materials.

Trochę koloru dodałam tuszami alkoholowymi i farbami Art Alchemy, po wyschnięciu są permanentne, więc spokojnie mogłam podkreślić jeszcze wszystkie szczegóły białym gesso, bez obawy, że coś się rozmaże. 

I added a little color with alcohol inks and Art Alchemy paints, after drying they are permanent, so I could calmly highlight all the details with the white gesso, without fearing that something will be blurred.
