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'.

Studio, some nuvo embellishment mousse through my 'Swirly florals' stencil and a few... [Lire la suite]

I covered everything with white gesso and then I got stuck and didn't know how... [Lire la suite]

Altered heart tin box - Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge

Hello, Mixed Media lovers ! Today, I am sharing my entry to the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge "Miniature/Tiny things".

Originally, this tiny box looks like this :  Here is the final result :  To alter this box, I started by sanding it so my mediums would adhere better. I applied one coat of black gesso on the box and on my embellishments (except... [Lire la suite]

Art Daily challenge - Princess Stars

Hello Mixed Media friends ! Today, I am sharing with you my entry to the Daily Art Cafe challenge... an altered box that I called "Princess Stars". One particular image inspired me... Go to the Art Daily cafe facebook group and try to guess which one ! For this project, I used some black gesso, my Finnabair Midnight sky metallic acrylic paint. I stenciled some texture paste through a star stencil and rubbed white gold wax to highlight details a bit everywhere. I added a big paper clip that has a star shape, some gold star glitter. I...

Shape of My Art - February Play with Art Playground

Hello crafty friends ! Today I am sharing with you my entry to the February Art PlayGround Challenge, "Shape of my art". We have to use at least one colour of the scheme below :  I used a midnight blue and the pinkish-purplish shade to alter a tiny wooden box which was containing wood embellishments : The tip of the month got me quite inspired. I added some embellishments trying to get a nice harmony between curves (wings near the scissors, handle of the scissors, the letter "o" and the art stones) and straight lines (I... [Lire la suite]
