Layout “When you can dream” for 49 and Market

Hi my dear friends!
I have several projects not shown here! I will correct and inspire you! Thank you for being with me!

I want to inspire you with ease and tenderness today. My layout for lovely 49 and Market!  This time I want to recall the past collections because each of them is amazing. I took two contrast sheets from different collections. I really like to combine them. As you already know, I love purple. So my main sheet is Scents of Nature Collection: Fly Away and to him I added a contrast sheet Rusty Autumn: Falling Leaves. It looks really nice! The collection Rusty Autumn inspired me and I chose a gentle and beautiful photo with pumpkins.

To create an airy and beautiful composition I use many different materials. But my most favorite are flowers. There are many of them here and each of them is simply beautiful. Among the stunning paper in 49 and Market you can find beautiful sheets with elements for cutting out! They will always help you create your own unique story on the layout! I used Spring Cut Out Sheet. Such cute babies are there!!!

Canvas "Let's Go To Florence" for Finnabair and Video Tutorial!

Hello there lovely creative friends! 
Today I'd like to share with you my brand new inspiration and new video tutorial - a mixed media canvas for amazing Finnabair. This time, I'd like to take you on a trip to the beautiful city of Florence. I wanted to express the atmosphere of Florence, its  unique grandeur and mystery. For me, Italy will forever remain my very favorite country and the place where I'd love to live one day...

I invite you to watch my video tutorial to see the whole process of creating my project. Enjoy!

I created my project on a white background. To create some interesting textures, I used one of my favorite Finnabair products - White Crackle Texture Paste and Paper Texture Paste (together with the 'Honeycomb' stencil). It's such a great joy to be using these pastes, I love applying them and seeing all the unique results you can achieve. To enrich my textures even more, I also added different sizes of Art Stones (glued in place with Soft Matte Gel).

Layout “More than ever” for 49 and Market

Hello my dear creative friends!
Today I would like to show you my new inspiration for lovely 49 and Market! I hope that many of you have already been inspired by beautiful new collections from 49 and Market!  And today I want to show you a simple and stylish project with paper and some interesting ideas for the dynamics. All you need for success is quality materials, contrasts and fearlessness to try something new. So I tried to do something non-standard from me. And for my project I chose Captured Adventures Collection. Really beautiful and such a versatile paper! It gives you absolute freedom and you feel yourself an artist. For my project, I combined two contrasting sheets: Captured Adventures: The Journey and Captured Adventures: Faded Memories.

For a more interesting composition, I used a simple but interesting technique. I took a sheet Captured Adventures: The Journey and just cut it into a strip. Each strip I drew in the middle of the dotted line and pasted a little to free the edges on the sheet Captured Adventures: Faded Memories.. So they became voluminous. To make the background more interesting I added a white spray and end dies! Oh, how I admire them. They always make your background unique and more textured

Layout "Morning" for 7 Dots Studio and Video Tutorial!

Hello dear friends!
Today I would like to show you my new inspiration for lovely 7 Dots Studio with video tutorial for you! This time I wanted to go full mixed media on my layout. So here you will see a lot of mixing of materials. But most importantly, my foundation is a magnificent paper from 7 Dots Studio! This paper is ideal for such a project. You have complete freedom and quality materials. And what could be better than this? I tried to convey the atmosphere of the morning and the beauty of nature on my layout. I followed the theme of the photo. For the base, I chose an incredibly beautiful collection “Northern Lights” and sheet – Starlight.

I prepared a step-by-step video and invite you to watch it so that you can see all the details of my project

I created the texture of my background with a texture paste – Black Sand from Finnabair. Then I created a multilayered composition of scraps of paper and on it a volumetric decor. Then I added some colour with magic sprays from Lindy's. First I applied the sprays and then added the saturation with acrylic paints. It turned out incredible! A few stamps in my background and a few strokes of white krakley. All this added to my composition.

Canvas "Remember The Moment" for Finnabair and Video Tutorial!

Hello there lovely creative friends!
Today 'd like to share with you my new inspiration for amazing Finnabair Team - a monochromatic mixed media canvas. I experimented creating my piece with just one color and I wanted to show you how beautiful it can be to use a limited palette combining different materials, mediums, shades and tones. I started by creating my background and building it up with various textures. For this, I used some non-scrap materials or leftovers, for example the wooden pieces used to support a canvas and the 'negative' chipboard shapes.
Don't be afraid to experiment, add volume to your works by trying out different shapes that attract you, even unusual ones!

I invite you to watch my video and see the whole creative process. Enjoy!

To create my favorite kind of texture I use Black Sand Texture Paste. This is such an amazing product with large grains that make wonderful porous effect! Everybody knows that all the colors gain a beautiful shining quality when applied on a black background. As I love this trick, in my next step I covered all the elements I glued on the canvas with Heavy Black Gesso.
Then I selected the elements for my composition. I want to make something light and beautiful to embellish the vintage image of an elegant couple. You can find a similar image (and more!) in Finnabair's Ephemera Collectibles. I also reached for different Mechanicals and a chipboard frame

Canvas "A Window To New Ideas" for Finnabair and Video Tutorial!!!

Привет мои дорогие друзья!
Сегодня хочу поделиться вдохновением для Finnabair! Каждый раз я стараюсь сделать что-то интересное, вдохновляющее, но и простое одновременно. В этот раз я хотела поиграть с текстурами и создать эффект настоящей стены с окном. Надеюсь, вам будет интересно разглядывать ее. Также здесь я использовала крутые пасты Stone Effect Pastes и восхитительную палитру акриловых красок! А более подробно за процессом вы, как всегда, сможете посмотреть в видео! Приглашаю вас!

Hello, lovely creative friends!
Today I want to share with you my new art inspiration for  FinnabairWhen you have such beautiful colors of paints in front of you, all you really want to paint and feel like a real artist! :) I hope you will see how easy it is and be inspired. My project is actually very simple - all I did was that I just enjoyed playing with all these colors and textures! You've got to love mixed media when as if by magic, everything turns into a three-dimensional picture... You can use the simplest things, the main thing is not to be afraid, to experiment and show a little imagination!

Please enjoy watching my video and see the whole creative process!

So my idea was to create a faux wall and a window with textures imitating the real ones. To create a wall effect like this, the ideal products is of course Stone Effect Pastes! I started by glueing sone pieces of wood and some chipboard shapes on the base on the canvas. Finnabair's Mechanicals Tags also worked great as additional detailsfor my background. And speaking of Mechanicals - the Wings are just the perfect symbol of creativity and inspiration, don't you think?
When my arrangement was ready, I applied the Stone Effect Pastes and made sure they dried well.
I wanted to work with acrylic paints in my project so I covered everything with Heavy Black Gesso that makes primes all the surfaces to 'accept' paints better but also enhances all the acrylic colors and makes them look more luminous. Black Gesso truly creates miracles!
