Summer heart by Olga Ravenskaya

Hi dear friends!

It's Olga Ravenskaya here with my new project and video step-by-step.

Sometimes when I'm in a creative process I can totally change my idea on the spur of the moment.
This was exactly that case!:-)
I got a wonderful bouquet of flowers as  a surprise from my beloved brother, my mood immediately  jumped up and I grabbed wonderful Finnabair Studio Metallique acrylic paints to create this bright and joyful heart.

As a background I used a sheet from gorgeous 7 Dots Studio Verano Azul paper collection.
Added it with Opaque Matte modeling paste applied through the Lace stencil and with Gold Crackle Texture Paste.

I altered all the wooden and resin embellishments using Lime Peel, Wild Fuchsia, Vintage Rose and Pure Sunshine Metallique acrylic paints.

As a final touch I enhanced the background with Magenta Liquid Acrylic, added bright splashes using Metallique paints and added Art stones and sequins.

Here is my video step-by-step

Hoping you'll enjoy it!

Thank you for stopping by!

Earth, wind, water, fire by Natalya Trofimova

Hello my creatives!
Today we are creating simple mini canvases with beautiful textured backgrounds.
These are mini-canvases "4 elements" - they symbolize the elements of Water, Fire, Earth and Air.

To create a spectacular texture, I glued down various decorative elements on the canvases - a piece of chipboard in the form of vegetation, numbers, half-beads...

Then the surface was primed with white gesso.

We take our favorite shades of red, green and blue and paint the surfaces with a gradient.
then you can walk along the edges with tint - dark paint or paste with sand, add moss.

It remains to apply white paint or wax on top and add a little decor - leaves, flowers, clocks and others.
Enjoy your creativity!
Hugs, Natalia.
