Steampunk canvas by Nadya Drozdova

Hello everyone! Here is Nadya sharing with you my mixed media inspiration. This time it is small 10x20 cm canvas in steampunk style, full of textures and interesting elements. 

For my background I used Paper pastes, Tissue paper and acrylic paints by Finnabair. As a main decoration I took Dusty Attic chipboard and Mitform casting metal embellishments. You can watch the whole process of creation this canvas in my video tutorial. Wishing you a lot of inspiration.

Marine accents by Kasia Salmanowicz

Hello crafty people!

It's summer, so you can enjoy the allure of vacation. I love this time of the year and marine mood! Today my inspiration is a banner with an anchor at the center. Of course, based on the Finnabair products.

In addition to the base and anchor made of HDF material, I also used clay elements and new Finn moulds. It turns out that cogs have been one of my favorite accents in projects lately. In my project you can see metal embellishments, stickers from Art Daily series, art stones, some old paper, but also a stencil with a golden icing paste thanks to which a beautiful shiny pattern appeared on the base. There is also sand paste here. I used soft matte gel for gluing the whole project and colored some elements with liquid acrylic paints.

I show all the steps in my video tutorial – I invite you to watch and comment. Naturally Finnabair products can be found in the Mixed Media Place store.

Have a nice day,

Kasia Salmanowicz

Coral forest by Anastasia Korvyakova

Hello mixed media fans! Today I want to inspire you with my mixed media tag. What do you prefer, walks in the forest or sea rest? Maybe both?
I couldn't choose and I mixed both themes in my work: corals as a forest and between them butterflies as fishes.

I created background using marvelous colours of paints - Mint (impasto paint) and Jade Stone (metallique paint), beautiful washi tapes from set Nocturnal Elements (all by Finnabair) and Distress Ink. For coloring up corals I also used Mint and Jade Stone paints, added other amazing paints - Mermaid Teal (Sparks Paint), Ancient Gold (Metallique Paint) and embossing powder from Ranger.
To enhance the similarity of corals to forests, I used Mechanicals - Woodland Ferns. As always, the best way to glue them down is to use the Heavy Body Gel.
At the end I added Art Ingredients - mini art stones and micro beads.

I prepared video tutorial. I hope you like it!
