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...

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]

Vintage Mixed Media Canvas / Toile Mixed Media Vintage

Hello craftiful friends ! Today, I am going to share with you a mini canvas that I made for a friend. I think it really has a vintage look. But no more talking (for now :)), just see :  Now, let me explain to you how I made it. I first glued two metal filigrees and then apllied some gesso all over the canvas. Then, I put a bit of sand texture paste from Finnabair, two coats of Finnabair's acrylic paint, Art Alchemy Soft Satin, over which I built the composition : lace ribbon at the right of the canvas, a resin frame (I...

An Altered box : give a new life for a tea box!/ Boîte altérée/récup' : nouvelle vie pour une boîte de thé!

Hello everyone!   Today I am going to share with you a project I realized with Prima Marketing products, and more particularly Finnabair Art Basics pastes and Art Alchemy paints. I wanted to give a second life to a nice cylindrical tea box that I finished. I did not use all the products on the picture, but almost (I changed my mind on the way: creation is a flexible process). First, I covered my box with black gesso and glued almost all my metal elements and pebbles with soft gloss gel or glue. I added some texture with... [Lire la suite]

Mixed Media card.../Une carte en Mixed Media

Hello !!   Yesterday, I challenged myself...for a challenge. I am participating for the Finnabair and Friends - Open studio group on Facebook, I created this Mixed Media card with Finnabairs Art Alchemy Paint, metal embellishments, pebbles, microbeads and glitter. This postal card format was a premiere for me, as I am used to work on bigger formats. The subject, chosen by Karolina Bukowska, is "Glitter - Metal - Contrast". That's why I chose the emerald green and the lilac for my subject. It was quite a challenge for myself,... [Lire la suite]

An altered venetian mask, the perfect acessory for a Photo Booth

Hello everyone ! My boyfriend celebrated is 30st birthday last week, and we decided to organize a photo booth as a nice activity for our guests.

I bought a blank mask, got my favorite paints, and the mask was done very quickly. For this piece, I used Finnabair Art Alchemy Metallic Emerald Green and Opal Magic Violet-Green. First, I painted two layers of the lightest color (Violet Green) and then painted the... [Lire la suite]

My first post...Inspired by Alice in Wonderland !

Welcome to my blog and thank you first for stopping by and reading... For my first post, I will share my first Mixed Media challenge (that's a lot of "firsts", isn't it?). This challenge, created by Simon Says Stamp, is organized every Monday (and there is a second one each Wednesday). The subject of this week was "Based on Book". From Pride and Prejudice to Lord of the Rings, I had plenty of choice, as I love to read... But I got inspired by Alice in Wonderland. I chose a paperbase : I really like the Vintage, shabby look of this... [Lire la suite]
