Vintage Mixed Media altered picture frame : Let your mind travel with balloons...

Hello Mixed Media friends ! I will share with you today my entry for the Mixed Media place challenge. The moodboard of this month is so inspiring, with soft tones of brown, grey and pink... I love it.   I let myself get inspired by these smooth colors and the balloons... I just loved the balloons theme... So here it comes :    For this project, I used a grey picture frame I had in my stash. I left it as is. Well, I mean, I didn't really change the color, I just altered it. Is that clear ? Not sure about that, ah... [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]

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]

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. Besides all the other accessories, I got inspired by Venetian mask and thought I would create myself for this photo booth. 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]
