Altered project for beginners by Nadya Drozdova


Hello everyone! Sometimes it is fun and interesting to do a project using some junk.  You could find something in father`s garage or grandmother`s cupboard and use it in your projects. 






This time I made an easy and fun project using some useless things, Dusty attic chipboard and Finnabair mixed media products. Here is my video:

Inspire by Cindy Brown


Hello everyone,
I am here today for my last blog post for Mixed Media Place. My term has ended and I received a mixed-media kit which I was happy with and I decided to create one last project with video tutorial.



I have loved being a part of this team for last two years! I would like to say big thank you for trusting me.



I enjoyed with this project a lot! I started with a stencil and texture paste.


Then I played with embossing powders and the stamps.

You can see the whole process on the video below:

Wooden box by Anastasia Korvyakova


Hello everyone!

Anastasia here and I decided to inspire you with a beautiful summer combination of blue, white and gold.




I took a wooden box and decorated it with a children's toy and various metal embellishments. I applied blue and white paint, then made a soft transition between them and added waxes for shiny effect.







Now you can imagine that this thing was brought as a memory from a long summer journey....



I prepared video tutorial, hope you will enjoy it.

Magical wands by Georgie

Hi guys,

I figured for this post this I would combine a project that I have been working on for my son’s birthday. He is having a Harry Potter themed party and of course there are lots of things to make!

With lots of things to make, of course I need to break out my Finnabair art ingredients :) So with a Harry Potter party what is the number one thing to create for the kids… wands!!!

Turns out that they are really easy to make too!


I have included in this a post a step by step (with photos) to show my process. But it is sooooo simple to make and quite effective.


With a few ingredients (black gesso and art alchemy waxes) you have instant magic in your hands.




And why not include a little box for them to go in? I created the labels on Canva but whipped up some boxed using 7 Dots papers!





Just a little bit of tissue oar to help support and display the wand.



Step by step process:

Step one:
Using black gesso, give two coats to the chop sticks.


Step two:
Apply hot glue in weird and wonderful layers :)


Step three:
Apply a further coat of black gesso over the dried hot glue.


Step four:
Add some metallic wax, using various colours over hitting all raised edges leaving shadowy areas in the crevices.


Step five:
Add colour to each wand and then add a lighter metal colour to create highlights.





Hope you have enjoyed this slightly different post.
Happy creating!
Georgie
