Canvas "Love to Dream" for Finnabair + Video Tutorial

Hello there lovely creative friends! 
Today I'd like to share with you my brand new inspiration for Finnabair with Video Tutorial - a mixed media canvas with new amazing Finnabair's products! I created a monochromatic project, but here you will see a variety of mixed media stuff. A bit of lightness and airiness, in dreams of the sea and the sky, here are my feelings.


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


For the base, I applied White Crackle and dried it well. Now there are fantastic cracks on the canvas! I covered them with Soft Matte Gel so as not to damage the pieces. Then I worked with color! There are so many of my favorite products here. I took several Acrylic Paints and Mica Powder and mixed them on canvas. Then I added Impasto Paints. First with a Stencil "Swirly Florals" and then just made a few strokes of a silicon brush. I love these matte and dense shades. This is a great combination with shiny acrylic paints. Then, using a variety of decor, I created a composition. I covered some metal elements and chipboard with Impasto Paints and Acrylic Paints. So the decor looks more harmonious in the project. I created voluminous and airy layers.

Вдохновение для СП "Magic School". АТС - Art in our hearts

Привет всем творческим и увлеченным!
Сегодня хочу вдохновить вас моими АТС для  прекрасного СП от Юлии Тирской "Magic School". Магический проект продолжает раскрывать новые таланты и  мы каждый раз восхищаемся вашими работами! Я счастлива быть его частью и благодарна Юле за приглашение!
АТС я делаю совсем не часто, но в этот раз волна вдохновения полностью накрыла меня. И невероятная атмосфера проекта, и необычайно красивая доска вдохновения, и желание каждый раз пробовать что-то новое позволили создать этих магических  малышей! Я увлеклась созданием необычной фактуры. И именно маленький формат позволил насладиться процессом и не бояться пробовать что-то новое! Здесь я хотела показать насколько необычайно красива наша природа в ее простых деталях. Именно она создает Мир вокруг нас, главное это увидеть и успеть полюбоваться!


Hi everyone creative and enthusiastic!
The magical project continues to reveal new talents and every time we admire your projects! I am happy to be part of it and thank Julia for the invitation!
I don't do ATCs very often, but this time a wave of inspiration completely covered me. And the incredible atmosphere of the project, and an unusually beautiful inspiration board, and the desire to try something new each time allowed us to create these magical kids! I was fascinated by the creation of an unusual texture. And it was the small format that allowed to enjoy the process and not be afraid to try something new! Here I wanted to show how extraordinarily beautiful our nature is in its simple details. It is nature that creates the world around us, the main thing is to see and have time to admire!

Layout "Delight" for 49 and Market

Hi my dear creative friends!
Today I want to inspire you with a project about me, little dreamer. This project I made for inspiration in the 49 and Market! When I think about my inner world, I always imagine the sea and the birds. This is my first association. I was able to show you my mood here with a beautiful new Island Paradise Collection ! For the basics, I used the reverse side of the sheet Island Paradise: Laser Cut Sheet. And even the reverse side of sheets 49 and Market is beautiful!



I also used elements from the sheet for decoration! It is very comfortable and cool, because they are already cut. You can also make these elements volumetric if you put a piece of cardboard at the bottom. I added some texture pasta to the background and blue paint for the marine atmosphere. And of course here are my favorite beautiful flowers! I used craft and brown shades. This is perfect for me!
And more details you can see in the photo. Enjoy

Layout "Record your story " for 7 Dots Studio and Video Tutorial

Hi my dear friends! My new inspiration  for 7 Dots Studio and step-by-step video tutorial for you! I was again inspired by a very stylish Air Mail Collection. And I also love to watch movies and there are actors who excite me with their talent. Today I have a men’s project and Matt Damon became the hero of it. I think many of you have a favourite movie with him!



I took two contrasting sheets from different collections. I love to mix. These were Air Mail – Priority and Lost and Found – Vignette. I also added a sheet from a small set – Air Mail – Pad 6×6. It is very convenient to use different sizes and it looks interesting in the composition. I also made a more interesting background with the Rust Effect Paste – Metal Rust from Finnabair and a stencil from the collection Garden Party – Chevron Stencil. A few more tags and stickers and of course I used stylish word stickers. This is my favourite element to create text on the layout!


I think you can take a closer look at the entire creative process of this layout in my video! I invite you to!

Layout "Remember always" for 49 and Market

Hi my dear friends!!!
Today I want to inspire you with a project for 49 and Market about tenderness and girlish thoughts. I am convinced that you are already in love with little fairies from the 49 and Market! They are really beautiful! And this time I was inspired by the  Collection: Flower Fairies of Spring Paper. I wanted to make a voluminous layout. So I took a sheet Flower Fairies of Spring Paper – In the Garden for the base and cut out beautiful flowers below. Then I just picked them up and now it has the 3D effect!




I used several cut sheets to create my own composition. Here you will find pieces of Tattered Garden: Laser Cut SheetSweet Reflections: Laser Cut Sheet and Dandelion Fields: Laser Cut Sheet. It is very convenient to use and each picture is unique and suitable for any collection. As you can see it is very simple and beautiful. Also of course I added favorite flowers to my project. I used Botanical Blends – Navy I added a texture paste, some splashes and excellent stamps to get a beautiful and more interesting background. But I always admire the backgrounds from the 49 and Market and you do not need to add a lot to get a great project!

Canvas Owl's Spirit for Finnabair with Video Tutorial

Hello there lovely creative friends! 
Today I'd like to share with you my brand new inspiration - a mixed media canvas
Nature is the best inspiration for me! And I love using natural elements in my projects! This time I was fascinated by the bark of the tree, its texture and uniqueness. Therefore, I devoted my project to the forest theme.


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


I created a canvas with a black background. This is my favorite kind of base. The colors and waxes shine here best and such background gives so many possibilities. Since in a forest you can find lots of different textures, I also tried to convey its atmosphere. So at first I created a texture layer. I used Texture Paste - Black Sand with very large and beautiful particles. I put it through the Stencil -  Harlequin. It is very convenient to use paste with large particles and thanks to them my background has become unusual!

Finn Team Art Recipe for June

Hello, wonderful creatives! 
This June Art Recipe from Finnabair Design Team was incredibly inspiring for me! Ready to head to the seaside! Stick your toes in the ocean cool blues,  dig around in the glimmering warm sand, and keep your eyes peeled for wonderful sea shells and stones...all in a creative sense with Art Alchemy acrylic paints, Art Stones, and Art Extravagance Pastes-Stone, Rust, and Patina! When summer comes, you immediately think about the warm beautiful sea... It's always an inspiration, a promise of the best time and new positive emotions. My favorite combination is the sea and the mountains. And it's so cool to have a unique reminder of this on my desk. So I decided to create this special kind of a summertime souvenir that I called "The Traveler"
More details and another amazing projects from Juliya and Bipasha you can find on the Prima website

Canvas "Near the stars" for 7 Dots Studio and Video Tutorial

Hello creative friends!
Today I would like to show you my new inspiration with video tutorial for 7 Dots Studio!
How often do you look at the stars? I really love the sky, you can dream and feel that you can do anything! My project today is dedicated to dreams and feelings. Therefore, there is much freedom, light and tenderness. I created the base with a sheet Northern Lights – Starlight and for the contrast added a few layers of paper Writer’s Block – Torn



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



I wanted to make it air. I cut out several elements from the stickers, and also added a decor of flowers and molds. To create an interesting background, I used canvas base and painted it with colours. Also I very much like to add stamps to the background to make it more textured. It looks so beautiful!
I really like 7 Dots Papers for their versatility and limitless possibilities. Every project can be your own unique fairy tale. The main thing is to show what you feel and just create! After all, inspiration surrounds us!


Layout “The spirit of the old forest” for 49 and Market

Hi my dear friends!
I'm here today with new inspiration for 49 and Market!
I really love nature. Anywhere always and everywhere. It gives us the most beautiful shades and textures that fascinates me. This time I was inspired by the spirit of the old forest and decorated it with my favorite materials from 49 and Market. Here I combine several sheets from different collections and admire each of them. But for the basics, I took one of the last and very beautiful collections – Tattered Garden Collection Pack



I supplemented my core sheet with a light sheet Laws of Nature and took several elements for the decor from At the Quarry. I really love paper from 49 and Market that here you can always cut beautiful elements for your project! This is ideal for a beautiful and unique composition! Also I took one of my favorite sheets Vintage Artistry Flora and Fauna Cut Out Sheet and carved a butterfly and several leaves. It really looks original.

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!

Layout "“Turn back the clock”" 49 and Market

Hi my friends! 
Another inspiration for my favorite blog 49 and Market!
This time I want to inspire you with a terrific Tattered Garden Collection . I could not choose one sheet, so here I have just two! I really love projects with volume and lots of details and here I completely enjoyed the process of creating. I also took the inscriptions immediately from the line under the sheet. I really like to create something unusual for me and look for the decor in the simplest of things.


So here I connected two sheets: Tattered Garden: Tattered Leaves and Tattered Garden: Tattered Playground and added several elements Dandelion Fields: Laser Cut Sheet. It’s so cool to have such beautiful and comfortable decorations in the collection! I am delighted. Also, I cut out strips of paper and just put a stamp from the set Gabi’s Postcard from Paris. So I got my die-cut!



I used a beautiful chipboard from Dusty Attic for the decor. But the best for me is the flowers! ere you will be able to see several new sets. Are they not beautiful? Each flower is velvety and unique and what juicy colors! I used  Vintage Shades Botanical Blends – Yellow and Vintage Shades Botanical Blends – Cerise and others. For the atmosphere, I added a chipboard in the form of bricks 6×6 Archival Board – Love (White) You can also take out the bricks and it looks very nice!
