Explore, wander, dream passionately... mixed media canvas

Hi my dear crafty friends :)

We just spent our family weekend at the seaside and it felt so so good to relax a bit. I came home full of fresh ideas and energy to complete my projects. And today I would like to share with you my new canvas I made - explore, wander, discover, dream passionately. I used lots of Lindy's gang products and Prima&Finnabair products and I also added some real 23 karat gilding which makes it so rich!

I was inspired by two current challenges:
- Dusty attic july challenge and its gorgeous moddboard with those striking and bold colors and
- More than words monthly challenge with the theme of arrows and a word "explore".

I will add graphics and links to both of them at the bottom of my post. Go check them out! This was so much fun to make! Hope you'll like it. :) Do leave me some thoughts in the comment section... I loooooove to read them!

Have a great day!
Hugs, Aleksandra

Enchanted ocean mermaid altered box

Hi dear crafty friends,

It's my day today on Scrapiniec inspiration blog again. Have to say, I just love so much these new collections and one of them was perfect for my todays project. I made an altered enchanted ocean mermaid box. I altered an wooden box with some white gesso and crackle texture paste and then added some colors with amazing Lindy's gang magicals. After that I created a composition using some watercolor designs and some gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards from watergarden and stitches collections. I've used:

- Scrapiniec Stitches XL 01 chipboards,
- Scrapiniec Stitches XL 02 chipboards,
- Scrapiniec Water plants set 02 chipboards.

I love the outcome! Hope you'll like it to! I'll be happy if you visit also Scrapiniec blog and leave me some love there!

Enjoy the day! Hugs, Aleksandra

"Let your beautiful soul shine" altered Lizard on Egg with Prima and Finnabair

Hi dear crafty friends :)

Do you love lizards? I absolutely adore their colors! They look so magical and so mystical to me. And ever since I first saw this silver plated lizard in one of the local stores, I wanted to make him shine! And now his time has come. I just loooove how this little guy turned out! What do you think?

Prima and Finnabair patina pastes, art alchemy sparks and opal magics and color blooms were just perfect combination to alter it. I put it on a big egg which I altered with real egg shells, some alcohol inks and white gesso. And I made him a king of his world! ;)

Hope you'll like my new project. There is also new tutorial on my youtube channel for you to play around a bit! :) Enjoy the day and see you soon!

Hugs, Aleksandra

Heritage road art journal with Prima and Finnabair

Hi dear friends, I'm with you today again with some fresh Finnabair and Prima inspiration for you. From our fabulous 7 kids Your crafting supply store I received this gorgeous Tiny Frank Garcia journal with thick chipboard covers and pages. It's awesome! At first I wanted to use it for a mini album, but then changed my mind precisely because of this gorgeous thick pages that have enough of place in between to add lots of dimensional embellishments. So I decided to turn it into art journal pages. Today I share with you the first two art journal pages I made. Hope you'll like them. :)

Here are the supplies I used from the 7 kids Your crafting supply store:
- Prima marketing Frank Garcia Tiny Journal
- Prima marketing IOD Water soluble oil pastels
- Prima marketing acrylic paint sparks Butterfly Spells
- Prima marketing Mini art stones
- Prima marketing flower bouquets
- Prima marketing Antique Tub
- Prima marketing metal signs

Thank you for stopping by and have a great and fabulous day! :)
Hugs, Aleksandra
