Words & Paintery December Inspiration

Mixed Media Altered Frame

December is my favorite month. I love the cozy time, the woollens, the snow and more of tea & coffee. As an artist there is a lot of inspiration too in this month too. There we go with the Words & Paintery December Pallette, which gives me a soothing and frosty feel.

So for this frame, I had mostly whitish and soft tones in mind as the pallette says. Also I wanted to add a lot of sparkle. I took a blank frame and gessoed it first. Then I applied Texture Paste(white crackle). I wanted to have a dreamy design so grabbed some dream catcher chippies from 2Crafty Chipboard and luckily got one quote too. I gessoed the chippies and applied Finnabair waxes in "Royal Robes" and " White Gold". Added some bunch of flowers and art stones, followed by glimmer mist from Tattered Angles which has a very subtle blue tone with a sparkle. I loved the shade and it was perfect for this project. Finally added Distress glitter in "Pumice Stone".
Some detailed pictures..

Hope you enjoyed the post and got inspired.. see you soon :)

Smile - Scrapbook Page Layout

Hello my friends..

Just felt like creating something colorful and came up with this happy layout, inspired by the Mixed Media Place October Moodboard.

For this Layout, I randomly picked a colorful paper from my stash. I prepared my background with gesso and stencil and then some background stamping. Arranged my photo with some scrap pieces of paper and a frame from my stash. I used chipboard shapes from 2crafty chipboard that I colored white with acrylic paint. Then comes an important part, flowers. I have used all pastel-colored flowers to match my overall theme. Finally some splashes and done!!

With this Layout I participate in Mixed Media Place October Challenge

Hope you enjoyed and got inspired.. Have a beautiful day!!

November inspiration for Words & Paintery

Hello my friends..

I am back today with a new post and this time it's a scrapbook page layout, DT project for Words & Paintery November Challenge which is a beautiful christmas palette this month and also my entry for the fabulous More Than Words Challenges November Main Challenge where the theme is Woodgrain/Outdoors.

For this layout I have used woodgrain pattern papers from Fabrica Decoru. I started off with giving some distressing my papers. Once I was happy with it, I did some stenciling and arranging the photograph. I have used muslin cloth and sisal beneath the photograph to add some interest and height. I have used some gorgeous flowers from 49 & Market and chipoard shapes from 2Crafty Chipboard that I colored with Finnabair wax in "White Gold". To finish my layout, I added some Finnabair art stones and micro beads. Some detailed pictures..

With this project, I enter to Mpre Than Words Challenges November

"Treasure" - Finnabair Inspired

Hello there,

Today I have a project inspired by Finnabair and had a wonderful experience doing this Notebook Cover. 

The Finnabair waxes do all the magic. They are so versatile and kind of addictive. In this project I used Antique Brilliance "Lucky Emerald", opal magic "Royal Robes" and Metallique "Vintage Gold". I covered the embellishments with black gesso and applied the waxes just in a way I wanted, until I got the desired results. 

With this project I participate to:

Hope you got inspired :)
Have a wonderful day!!

DT inspiration for Words & Paintery October Challenge

Hi there..

Today I am here to share my inspiration project for Words & Paintery October Challenge which is having a gorgeous color palette. Also this is my entry for Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo October Challenge where the theme is to use watercolors.

I created a mixed media panel and my focal point, the wings, are painted in watercolors and fussy cut. 
I started off with a thick cardboard panel which I took out from an old unused photo frame. Applied white gesso all over and then I decoupaged it with a scripted tissue paper. I focused on my background alot as I was not using many embellishments on this project and wanted my background to be interesting. I then applied more of gesso on the decoupaged background and then did some stenciling(Tim Holtz) using modelling paste(Prima). I used brick pattern. 
The next step was applying colors. I used spray and magical pigment powder from Lindy's. Once I was satisfied with the amount of colors on my background, I started to arrange the embellishments. I used some Finnabair embellishments and a key from my stash. I applied Finnabair wax (vintage gold) on all of the metal embellishments to make them all synchronise and come together. 
Finally some white splashes with gesso and finished it with a quote strip (Tim Holtz).
Some detailed pictures..

This project is my entry for Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo October Challenge

Hope I inspired you today :)
Thank you for stopping by.

Hello Friends,

I am extremely glad to share my project as a Guest Designer for Mixed Media & Art. This project is an inspiration for MMA Creative Art Joint Project stage 2 - Crystal Beauty.

The challenge is to use one transparent element NOT from scrap store and circles in any form. So here I used a cling film from my kitchen in an embroidery hoop to create a fine base for my mixed media work. I used flowers from Prima Zella Teal collection, chipboard from Dusty Attic and some Finnabair embellishments.

Hope you got inspired today :)
Have a wonderful day!!

Mixed Media Canvas - Boutique Treasures

Hi there...

October is keeping me busier than usual.. more of art everyday :)
Today I have a mixed media project to share which is loaded with stuff, and I had a wonderful time doing it.

The project is based on the theme for Stage 1 of Creative Art Joint Project by Mixed Media & Art - Mechanical Explosion, where one obligatory metal element has to be used, which shouldn't be from the scrapbook store, and the use of wings in any form. Quite an interesting project started by MMA which opens more possibilities for creativity. This project is also inspired by More Than Words October challenge where the theme is to use fabric somewhere. 
For this project I had quite a number of things in mind as metal element is already popular in mixed media and there are lots of things to choose from, but here the element should not be from scrap store. So I decided to work on a boutique/sewing kind of theme and use a couple of bobbins that I had in my sewing box. This way I could incorporate the elements from both MMA and MTW.
To start with, I took a canvas board as my base and glued some laces and scrap pieces of cardstock in an uneven manner. Also I included a measuring tape and a couple of chipboard scraps for a more enhanced background. Then I arranged all the embellishments and elements - BOBBINS, pair of small scissors, buttons and some Finnabair stuff, and covered the whole panel with white gesso.
Now the panel is all set for some color. This time I had no clue what color to apply. I was totally blank, yet wanted it to be bright and beautiful. I randomly picked one of  Magicals set from Lindy's - "Hawaiian Islands" which has some really pretty colors. I decided to add more highlights with some rust and patina pastes from Finnabair, followed by Finnabair Wax - "White Gold" on the metal elements and on chipboard. I couldn't wait to add my Prima flowers and Julie Nutting doll that I adore in this whole project. I created wings for the doll with wire and net. For the final touch, I added in some areas, Glass glitter by Finnabair in the shade "Gold Rush" which actually gave a gorgeous shine. Finished it off with highlights of white gesso and some text stickers by Tim Holtz. 
That's all of it!!

Have a great weekend!!
