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...

Review - Prima Marketing Finnabair's Acrylic paint/ Revue: la peinture acrylique de Finnabair, Prima Marketing

Hello everyone,   This post is going to be very long, and I apologize in advance. Today I am going to share with you my very first review, about the acrylic paint from Finnabair and Prima Marketing. I am sure there are plenty of reviews, but I wanted to do my own.

For now, I have 18 of them, from three different collections, plus a wax (which I won't present now, because it's... [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]

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]
