Time... - for

Dzisiaj mam dla Was pracę z najnowszej kolekcji AB studio - "Behind closed doors". Papiery trafiły w moje ręce wczoraj i nie mogłam się powstrzymać, żeby szybko nie przygotować z nimi jakiegoś projektu. Ta kolekcja ma świetny, starociowy charakter, mnóstwo ciekawych, tajemniczych elementów, piękne tagi i zegary do wycinania. Ciężko się od niej oderwać.

Today I have for you an artwork from the latest AB studio collection - "Behind closed doors". I got papers yesterday and I could not resist to make something with them very quickly. This collection has a great, vintage character, lots of interesting, mysterious elements, beautiful tags and clocks to cut.

Przygotowałam kompozycję na tablicy malarskiej, wzbogacając tło piękną tekturką, również z AB studio. Takie duże, tekturowe elementy są jednymi z moich ulubionych. Same w sobie są bardzo ozdobne, doskonale wzbogacają tło projektu, wystarczy niewiele, aby dopasować je do każdego projektu. Ja użyłam tutaj farb Liquid Acrylics, które mają bardzo intensywne kolory i są permanentne. Jednak tekturki są tak wdzięcznym produktem, że da się je pomalować praktycznie wszystkim, co sobie wybierzecie. 

I made the composition on a painting board, enriching the background with beautiful chipboards, also from AB studio. Such large elements are one of my favorites. They are very decorative in themselves, they perfectly enrich the background of the project, you don't need to make a lot to match them to each project. I used Liquid Acrylics paints here, which have very intense colors and are permanent. However, cardboard is such a grateful product that you can paint it with everything you choose.

Rusty Art - for Finnabair Creative Team

Hello friends!

This is my new artwork for Finnabair Creative Team. I have for you the project with a product that I have been discovering again - Rust Effect Pastes. As soon as they appeared on sale, I liked them very much. However, in the plethora of new products and artworks, I put them somewhere on the shelf and they rarely visited my desk. Now it’s come back and I can not live without them! My discovery is that they fits very well to metallic papers, that glisten too much for me. But when we use a little bit of pastes, papers become a perfect background for rusty projects. Here, I additionally used the embossing folder and aged the background with sandpaper.

All my composition is resin and metal elements covered with black gesso. Thanks to gesso, all media like pastes, paints, etc. stick better. I used also a papers, only to "soften" this industrial look. I think everything is perfectly balanced. After placing all the elements in their places, I reached for rust again. I applied it in several places and at the end I used the Opal Magic paints. They added shine to my artwork, the effect of light patina, beautiful contrast.

I made a video for you, where you can see step by step how the project was created. Remember the quote from my project - „Less perfection more authenticity”! This will help you focus on the fun and creation. Enjoy!

Treasure box - for Graphic 45

today I have for you really simple inspiration. A small box with a little bit of mixed media. As a base I used ATC Book Box from Graphic 45, and composition is made with Communique collection.

I decorated the whole box surface with the Finnabair mask. I made a pattern with 3D gel and covered it with black gesso. I added color with waxes.

Rusty fish


This project I made for my home. I really like marine decorations and I think it will look great on my wall. I used Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folder "Lumber" and Finnabair rust pastes to make this planks background.
