Love is in the Air

Today is the start of the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday.
Our theme is Love is in the Air and we hope to see lots and lots of this theme's rendering.
As always what you make, the style, materials and mediums you use
 is entirely up to yourselves.

Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

This time I decided to alter a cardboard tea box to make a proper container for Valentine's treat. 

 Started with collaging some piece of scrap paper.

 Then I used 3 colours of acrylic mousse  to unify the background.

Added some texture stamping.

I embellished my box with a stamped heart, atiny flower and some moss.
The closing on the back is made with a metal badge and a piece of magnet.

Off to Collage


Hi there! I'm very exciting today as  it is my debut as a designer over at Stamps and Stencils.

                                                            Stamps and Stencils

Our theme for this month is ,,Off to Collage''.
Cec is hosting the challenge and that is what she wants us to do:
No I am not sending you to school but thought it might be fun this month to make a collage. You can use any substrate such as canvas, corrugated cardboard, wood, or canvas boards for instance and add any items to it as long as you include some stamping and/or stenciling.

My take on the theme is an altered leaflet. I liked the shape of it  and decided to make a hanger for my friend who is a devoted angler.

I started with making a template on tracing paper.

Next I prepared some pieces of coloured and stamped paper.

I fussy cut the stripes.

Then I made fins from corrugated cardboard, some gills and an eye.

Almost completed....

To finish my fish off I added some gold texture paste through the stencil.

I also outlined the elements with Inktense pencil, added a black button for an eye and mounted the fish on a frame.

Fire and Ice

Fire and Ice
is our challenge theme at Try it on Tuesday this time.
As always what you make is entirely up to yourselves - as long as you use hot or cold colours.
We look forward to visiting you to see what you have been making.

                                            Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

My take on the theme  this time is a card with lots of heat embossed items in the background.
Warm colours stand for Fire. 
Butterflies cut out from vellum paper show Ice. 
Hope you like it!

My Favourite Things

Hi there and let me invite you to join a new Try it on Tuesday's challenge today.
The theme for this fortnight is My Favourite Things  as usual it's entirely up to you what you make.
Have you a favourite stamp. a technique. paints, inks, mediums, style   etc....
that you like to use?

Have some fun, please tell us about  your choice .

I decided to make a diary cover as it is my favourite thing: to personalise an ordinary pocket calendar. I make it every year!
Next favourite thing is to add as much texture as I can to the surface-
I just love it! I used Texture Paste Platinum Crackle which gave me beautiful metallic effect.
My third favourite thing were Dylusions ink sprays- I find them excellent to use!

 As always you can follow some of my steps:

May each day of 2018 be full of sunshine, joy and laughter for us all!

Christmas Eve

Let me tell you all I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be
a guest designer today at  A Vintage Journey- such a talented design

For the current theme I have prepared a canvas
named ,,Christmas Eve''. I was inspired by my memories of this very special night when the whole family went to church about midnight to attend the unique Mass. It is one of the most beautiful Polish custom.

I have used a 29,5 cm x 9,5 cm white canvas where I glued the images of Lavinia
stamps cut out from a magazine.
I loved these houses but unfortunately didn't have any of the stamps.
Next step was covering all with clear gesso.

Next lots of colours were added to the canvas: Gelatos, acrylic paints, some inks
and mists.

I have also heat embossed star stamps and did some stamping with white
gesso. The snow was made with very heavy coarse structure paste.

The star is made of a birch-tree and I emphasized its texture by using heat embossing and some glitter.

Gift Bag

My family and friends got used to handmade gift bags, so it is almost impossible to give them Christmas gifts in any other packages.
That means a lot of work to me, but Thank God it makes me feel very, very happy too.
I have used a lot of mixed media stuff here. 
The background was primed and coloured with Gelatos first.
Next it was stamped with some twigs stamp to create a ,,frame''. 
I added the punched dots and outlined them with white Sacura pen.
I used the tree stencil to put some embossing paste , it was later heat embossed with Stampendous shabby green embossing enamel.
Hope you like it!
