Organza and satin flower brooches / Broches fleurs en organza et satin

Hello ! Today I am going to share with you another type of jewelry that I really enjoy to make and to wear... I think they are really vintage and elegant... fabric flowers, made out of organza and/or satin... This is going to be a short post, mainly pictures... They are really easy to make : just cut out circles of different sizes out of satin and organza, burn the edges with a tea light candle, sew them all together. Add a brooch pin onto a piece of flet at the back, done ! The longest step is to cut out the circles. I prepared... [Lire la suite]

Concrete jewelry / Bijoux en béton

Hello everyone !   Today I am going to tell you about something that I am really fond of... Concrete jewelry ! I discovered this technique about one year ago and now, I can't stop molding concrete ! I am in love with the industrial aspect of the concrete that I like to combine with gemstones (and I plan to combine it with Swarovski cristals, I think this can work very well too... I can't wait to find out!).     The one on the left is the very first model I created with a stone. This cabochon is made out of... [Lire la suite]

Bubble rings / Bagues "Bubulles"

Hi everyone, I am back after a long moment of silence... Lately I haven't been making Mixed Media. I made jewelry. I started to make bubble rings :  For the first one on the left, I used black microbeads ans white glitter (which turns out blue) into a circle of glass.   For the second one, I used only nail glitter. I don't know if this is because of that, or because of the Chrome effect of the glitter, but it got stuck onto the glass, inside the dome. It is really pretty, but we cannot really see the movement of the... [Lire la suite]

Indian Boho canvas - Toile à influence indienne/ Boho

Hello Mixed Media lovers !   I am sharing with you a project that is really important to me... A friend from work keeps telling me she wants something from me, something that I made. So I thought that once I had a bit of time, I would make her something special. She is from India and sometimes she feels nostalgia for her land, so I wanted to make her something colorful, contrasting and that reminds her of her country. And here it comes :      I used some Finnabair's paints for the background, Dark Velvet... [Lire la suite]

Handmade Junk Journal/ Junk Journal fait main

Hello crafty friends !   For mys first post of the year, I am sharing with you my first creation of the year and my first Junk Journal ever. That's a lot of "first", isn't it ?   I did everything by myself, including the binding and the cover. It was a lot of work (about 7h I think) but I really enjoyed choosing the papers, cutting it at the size I wanted, assemble it and then decorate my journal.... So I think I will do it again :). But differently, as I cut out two spines : I wanted to hide the binding, as I don't... [Lire la suite]

Christmas card/Carte de Noël

Hello crafty friends !   It has been a while I didn't post...Sorry for that, a lot has been going lately and I had very little time for myself (which I spent creating, of course:)). I am sharing this lovely Christmas card with you today :    For this card, I applied a few layers of Distress inks by Ranger (Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans) that I tried to blend together. I glued some stars that I cut with my Sizzix machine, 3 mint triangles of different shapes and different pattern, and a chipboard... [Lire la suite]

Mixed Media and Art Creative Art project : Lady Butterfly/ Project Mixed Media and Art Creative Art: Lady Butterfly

Hello! Today, I am sharing with you my first participation to Mixed Media and Art Creative Art Project. This project is about creating different Mixed Media pieces, respecting some conditions. The first stage is called "Mechanical Explosion" and your project needs to have one metal element which is not from the scrap store and wings. So I decided I would use a half metal half plastic jewelry holder as a base. See: The jewlery holder itself and its leg are metal. The body and the foot are plastic. I painted it with a coat of...

Shabby altered blackboard/ Tableau noir shabby altéré

Hello crafty friends ! In a few weeks, I will be moving in a new house, and I will finally have a craft room, or at least a craft space. I know exactly how I want it (mint, white and shabby), so I decided to start decorating it. A few years ago, my parents-in-law offered me a very rustic blackboard. I liked it, but I didn't know what to do with it, I put it in a cupboard and forgot about it until about a month ago. I forgot to take a picture of the board in its original state, but here it comes now: I painted it with white gesso... [Lire la suite]

It's a girl ! Celebrating Birth / C'est une fille : célébrer une naissance

Hello!   It's my second article in two days. Am I not really prolific ? Today I am sharing with you a canvas that I made for a friend's baby. This young lady is now one month old and I finally met her yesterday. As a birth present, I thought about a Mixed Media canvas of course. And obviously, because the baby is a girl, the canvas has to be pink and heart shaped. I wanted to create something she can have right now to put in her room but which she can also keep when she's older. If she likes it, of course. The shape was quite... [Lire la suite]
