Once upon a tale ...

Hello Mixed Media friends ! Today, I would like to share with you a project I really love. Soon, it will be one of my friends' birthday and I altered a notebook for her. I have been inspired by the Disney Movie "Tangled". For the cover, I used some paper clay pieces that I made with my Prima mold. I covered them with black gesso and then glued them on the front cover.  I started by applying a layer of Finnabair's Opal Magic violet blue, but ended up covering everything with Art Alchemy Sparks Iris Potion. Then I applied... [Lire la suite]

New year, new challenges at simply create too!

Hello crafty friends! Happy new year to you all.  My first post this year is also my first DT of the year for Simply create too. This month theme is «anything goes»! Because of the holidays, I didn't have much time, so I prepared something really quick and simple: two new shabby jars. You can find them below: One is green and apricot, the second one is orange and purple. I painted them with the Metallic emerald green and coral reef art alchemy paints by Finnabair. I added some rose gold wax on the green one, then tied a... [Lire la suite]

Altered jars - shabby chic on glass !

Hello crafty friends ! Today, I am sharing with you a very quick post about some jars I altered for my friends. These were very cute glass jars that I altered to give them a shabby look. Each of them has a different color combination, and I like each model. I started by painting each jar with white gesso and then added two layers of the first color. The first one is rose gold (Finnabair's Art Alchemy Sparks "Butterfly spells"). I added a bit of patina paste by Finnabair in turquoise here and there and tied a ribbon in a close... [Lire la suite]

Shabby chic wooden squirrel

Hello Mixed Media lovers   Today, I am sharing with you a cute little project that I really like... I had in my stash a tiny wooden squirrel and decided to do something with it :  I applied one or two layers of Finnabair's rust effect paste in purple and lavender. Then, I used the Stamper Anonymous/Tim Holtz stencil "Floral" to apply some rust effect paste in powder blue. I glued a fabric flower, some paper butterflies that I punched out a hole-punch, some handmade cabochon (with holo glitter or paint), a handmade bow... [Lire la suite]

Simply Create Too inspirational post : Part of Your world (Make a shaker card)

Dear Mixed Media lovers,   Today is the day to share with you my last creation for this month Simply Create Too challenge : we had to make a shaker card. As you may have noticed by now, cards are not my thing. Although I enjoy making them once in a while, I don't really make them on a regular basis. So I asked If I could make something else instead of a card. And I could. So here it comes ! I have been inspired a lot by the song "Part of your world" from the movie the little mermaid.I wanted to make something mermaidy and that... [Lire la suite]

Altered fan Marie-Antoinette

Hello Mixed Media lovers, Lately, I have been inspired by Frank Garcia (who is himself very inspired by the culture of my country) and I made an altered fan that I presented for Prima DT Call :    As you can see, it is very girly and pink. I decided to name it "Marie-Antoinette". For the background, I used Finnabair's sand texture paste, some crackle paste and some Finnabair's art stones. But I didn't like it, so after I painted it with Finnabair's Art Alchemy Metallique Vintage Rose acrylic paint, I decided I would... [Lire la suite]
