Simply Create too September Challenge - altered box

Hello crafty friends! Today is The day... Have you been waiting for it for the whole month? Yes, you've guessed... It is time for another challenge at Simply create too! And my inspiration for you is this very organic (and unusual compared to my other creations...) altered box I made for a friend who is leaving my company:     I created the texture with a paper napkin that I glued on top of the lid. I also added sand texture paste and hand molded clay pieces. I painted everything with gesso, and with Finnabair's... [Lire la suite]

One of my favorite is from a card maker I just discover, @mycraftyperspective on Instagram. Her cards are so neat and simple, yet delicate. I am... [Lire la suite]

Cute panda card "hugs" for Simon Says Stamp Insta Challenge

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing with you one of my entries to Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge for August, "Die Cutting". And let me tell you... I had a blast.   Can I say how much I enjoyed stamping this cute little panda over and over on my card panel? It took a while, but I found it very relaxing... I used Simon Says Stamp premium dye ink"DeepSea", Hero Art Shadow Ink "Antigua", and my distressinks in Pine Needle and Peacock feathers.   I stamped each image twice to get a smooth result and thanks to my...

Mini mixed media canvas "Lullaby"

Hello Crafty friends !   Today I am sharing with you my second entry to Bleeding Art Challenge of this month, Anything goes, and to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge of this week, Midsummer blues. I created a mini canvas (10x10 cm) :   For the background, I mixed some mica powder to some Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste m,  and I spread everything on my canvas, through my Echo Park "Classy Fan" stencil. I glued some clay door locks on which I realised a wash with impasto paint and some butterflies fussy cut... [Lire la suite]

Mixed Media altered MDF shell "Midsummer blues"

Hello Mixed Media lovers! Today I am sharing with you a project I am very proud of. A few weeks ago I passed an order at SnipArt and got, among other things, a lovely MDF shell to alter.  And this is how it looks like now: I used many products from Finnabair : black gesso, rust effect paste (royal blue), acrylic paints (light patina, magical pond) and waxes (peacock, white gold and mystic turquoise). As embellishments, I used shells and starfish chipboard from SnipArt (which I embossed with Wow! embossing powder), molded... [Lire la suite]

Mixed Media vintage canvas

Hi crafty friends! I am back with another Mixed Media piece! Today, I am coming with a small square canvas, 15 x 15 cm. This is my second entry to Bleeding Art challenge of this month, Anything goes. It is also my second entry to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, not a card.       I used some paper, a hand molded piece of clay and my Impasto paint in Boudoir pink.  Nothing complicated, it didn't take me too long to make. I didn't really have any project in mind, I just let myself follow my... [Lire la suite]

Altered notebook - Two Monthly challenges

Hello Crafty friends!   Today I am sharing with you my second entry to the Creative Artist Mixed Media challenge and my first one to Bleeding Art Challenge. Both are Anything goes. A friend from work is about to leave the company and I wanted to make her a gift. I altered a notebook for her. I was inspired by Nuneka. Without any further ado, let me show you the notebook:   I applied some modeling paste through my Manuscript stencil from Finnabair and glued a metal butterfly cut in two. Once this...

Mixed Media altered box - creative artist mixed media challenge

Hello crafty friends...  Today I am sharing with you my creation for Creative Artist Mixed Media for this month's challenge, 'Anything goes'. For Valentine's day, I gave my boyfriend a box of chocolate. Once it was empty, he gave it back to me so I can do something with it. It took me a few months, but here it comes:    I used Finnabair's Sparks Iris Lotion acrylic paint, some paper from the 'Be gentle' collection by A. B. Studio, some nuvo embellishment mousse through my 'Swirly florals' stencil and a few... [Lire la suite]

Simply create Too challenge - use pattern paper

Hello Mixed Media lovers! Today is the start of new challenge at Simply Create Too! This month, we have an optional twist: use pattern paper. Therefore, I got my favorite paper from the AB Studio collection "Be gentle" and created this lovely shaker from the packaging of a Finnabair wax. I also spread some texture paste through one of my favorite stencil, the bouquet of rose by Simon Says Stamp. For the shaker itself I created a mix of sequins, butterfly filigree (they were from an old earring which I disassembled), buttons,... [Lire la suite]
