I have another cool challenge to invite you! At 7 Dots Studio blog.
The challenge theme is "My Hero".
When I saw this theme I immediately knew that I will create something as a gift to my amazing hubby.
We have a new challenge at Mixed Media Place blog.
Look at this amazing mood-board!
I was inspired by the quote, flowers and combination of gold and teal colors.
So I decided to create a layout about myself :)
I have one more project to share with you, for the same challenge by More Than Words :)
This time it's a mixed media project - altered arrow on framed canvas :)
When I saw the challenge theme, my first idea was why not to create something with a big arrow? But if I want to participate in the challenge the project format has to be layout, canvas or art-journal. So I left this idea and created a layout (yesterday). But today I found the way how to combine the big arrow (which I cut from heavy weight chipboard) and canvas :)
Today I have to share with my new layout. I created it as example for a challenge which I run in my Craft group on Facebook.
Yes, I have my own Craft group with 1111 members (cool number :))
I created this group a few years ego to help our craft community in Israel to progress and develop. And I think I can feel a little bit proud, because some of my students managed to achieve impressive results: win in challenges and get to international DT. SO from time to time beside the live classes, I create for my girls some interesting challenge. Current challenge about creating a layered layout. I prepared a video tutorial for my girls, so this time it's in Hebrew, but you still can put it on mute and read the titles in English.
Today I'm going to share with you my newest creation :)
I made this layout this night :)
I took my inspiration from amazing mood-board by Prima
Mix of red and blue colors it's not usually my choice. So it was a little bit challenged to try something new :)
I have to tell a few words about the photo. Some time ago I found on my Instagram an amazing photographer from Russia - Kristina Makeeva (https://www.instagram.com/hobopeeba/).
Her photos are so inspiring! So I asked from Kristina a permission to use some of her photos in my art works.
To create my layout, I used St. Tropez collection by Prima Marketing and a mix of different flowers from previous collections
Hello my dears!
Today I have to share with something more Romantic :)
It's a big wooden treble clef, which I altered using Mixed Media techniques, in Shabby Chic style. This is my monthly project for Mixed Media Warriors blog.
And don't forget about our challenge running there :)
I want to talk to you today about style. How really is important to create in your own style? What do you think?
I have thinking a lot about it. Because I'm not sure if I have my own style. I like to many different things: Shabby Chic, Steampunk, Grunge, colorful projects, monochromatic projects, Vintage and much more. I can't create all my projects in the same style. It makes me get bored :). One day I have a mood for bright colors and flowers, and day after it can change to Steampunk or Grunge :)
I would love to read what you think about it.
How are you?
After my vacation I feel like a new person, a full of inspiration to create every day, whole day :)
This layout I created for Scrap & Craft store, using amazing collection Lavender Morning by Studio 75. I have no idea where from this photo. I found it on some image stock. But there was something in that photo that inspired me to create. This project is very emotional for me, it's about a new plans for our future and my feelings about it - a mix of hope, excites and fears :)
Hello my dears!
Finally I'm at home after 2 weeks of amazing vacation in Canada. I'm in love with this place. Everything is so beautiful, clean and all people so nice and kindness. It's so different from Israel :)
But... Today I'm going to share with you 2 cards, which I created (before my vacation) for The MiNi Art DT. Beside these wonderful stencils and chipboard die cuts by The MiNi Art, I used a beautiful papers by 7 Dots Studio
Hello dears! Sharing my new project for Mixed Media Place.
Do you love fairy-tales? I do :)
So I decided to turn some simple shadow box to a magical enchanting project :)
And I prepared a step by step video tutorial for you. Hope it's clear enough and you'll like it :)
Anyway if you have some questions you welcome to ask me.
I have a new mixed media creation :)
It's a small canvas.
I think I don't have to describe the meaning of this work :)
For me stay true to myself in my life sometimes was really challenged, it cost me a few fake friends and some money. But here I'm, strong and happy :)
The background texture I've created with Finnabair Rust Effect pasts, Patina Effect pastes and Art Stones. And all coloring work was made with Art Alchemy Metallique paints and Art Alchemy waxes.
This time no layers, just texture and colors :)
Last week I've created a lot of projects. That's because I try to get to Prima DT. I have no idea if I have any chance, because there are so many amazingly talented people who going on the same thing :). But this is my biggest dream, so I must try. I believe in hard work and to be true to yourself, and I hope to get some luck from the sky :)
But actually I meant to tell you that now I don't have enough time to post all my projects here in blog :). You can find all of them on my Instagram.
But don't worry, I'll do it before my fly to Canada :). I'm going to visit my mom, for 2 weeks.
And about this layout - I've created it for Make It Prima June challenge.
As you can see, this is my special model again - my sweet Sonia :)
I've used here a new Prima's collection: St. Tropez. The papers, the flowers and most of embellishments came from this collection.
I've created one more mixed media project with a video tutorial.
This time for The MiNi Art DT.
Beside the beautiful chipboard die cuts by The MiNi Art, I used here a lot of chipboard negatives to create all these layers :)
And to color everything I used my favorites: Art Alchemy acrylic paints by Finnabair. I hope you'll like my video :)
Do you like antique style items? I do :)
So today I'm going to share with you this small beautiful altered wooden box.
I've turned it to Shabby chic style jewelry box, using Patina effect pastes by Finnabair. And I have a video tutorial for you, again with my instruction in English. I've found it's the best way to learn a new language - try to teach others :)
I just finished a new project - mixed media canvas with Patina effect :)
I believe that mixed media project doesn't have to be always very complicated. It's really possible to create much simple works, but still looking beautiful :)
What do you think?
As inspiration I've decided to create a motivational card :)
I used here 7 Dots Studio papers, tags, stickers and stencil, homemade black modeling paste (black Gesso + heavy gel medium + texture powder) and Prima flowers. And I colored the background with India inks.
I finally finished all my duties for May and June and now I can start to prepare myself to my travel to Canada :) I'm going to visit my mom, for 2 weeks.
And I'm planning to visit Michaels store there :). I never saw a store like this in reality :). OK, not just to visit :), I hope to buy there all Finnabair new products :)
But now I would like to share with you my latest layout, with a photo of my amazing Sonia. I took this picture especial for this layout. I just opened these beautiful papers by Lemon Craft and looked for some good photo on my computer. But I didn't fund it. So I asked from Sonia to stand near the white wall in our home. And here I'm with a beautiful picture :) My big luck that she's always love to be a model for me :)
Would you believe that I still have some free time between family, 5 DT, weekend workshops and some orders? No, right?
I wouldn't believe either. But somehow I managed to find few free hours to alter this wooden box :)
And now it's Steampunk style treasure box :)
And I'm really love it!
If you are interested, I painted this box with Lindy's mists, Art Alchemy metallique paints and Art Alchemy metallique waxes. And a little bit of Rust Effect paste (by Finnabair of course)
Today i would like to share with you my new notebook cover.
I created it for The MiNi Art DT inspiration. I really like when my creations are not only beautiful but also useful. And that's why I really like to create notebook covers. This time I was inspired by beautiful Berry71Bleu's mood-board.
I have a new project to share with you.
It's an altered hoop. I created it as Scrap & Craft DT inspiration and I was inspired by More Than Words May challenge. So beautiful theme - Mother and flowers...
My creation is a gift for my beautiful mom, just to remember her how amazing she is.
