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...

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. I don't have (yet :D) every single acrylic paint from Finnabair (I think there are more than 40 colours!) but I am starting to have a nice collection. 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]

Altered fan

Hello everyone...   A quick and short post today to show you my latest creation : for the Prima DTCall, I realized this altered fan with Finnabair's (as usual :)) paint (Metallic Emerald Green), some metal embellishments that I patinated with Viva Décor Inka Gold (lilac), liquid pearls, and Prima Marketing paper flowers (and others)...

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]
