Heart-shaped box by Asia Szczurowska

I like decorating ordinary items. Adding character to them makes me satisfied.

For this project, I chose a heart-shaped box. I stuck rice paper on the bottom and colored the lid and sides with impasto paints. On these paints I put a paste from the Jewel series and white crackle paste. Remember that it is worth leaving it to dry on its own, without a heater.

Impasto are matte paints. To add shine to them, using metallic paints and mica powder. I mixed Mika with liquid acrylic paint and acrylic medium.

I covered the castings with mica mixed with liquid acrylic and, when it was completely dry, wax. Finally, I added a few splashes.  

I have prepared a video tutorial for you.

New Birth by Margarita Shkludova

Hello my creative friends! Margarita Shkludova is here.

As for me, spring is always associated with something new, with awakening to life, with new birth. I wanted to convey this spring feeling in my new layout. Here is our fragile life, love and care that we must give to each other and our loved ones.

A beautiful background turned out with the help of stencils and paints from Finnabair. Wonderful metal embellishments perfectly complemented the composition. All large elements are glued with Heavy Body Gel.

I have a video of the layout creation process for you.

Let the inspiration never leave you!

See you soon!


Vintage Victorian canvas by Lori Woods

Hello creative friends!

I decided to make a vintage style project for you this month and when I found my Victorian Green Impasto paint, that seemed like the perfect starting point!

I used resist canvas and lace strips to create lots of background patterns and texture along with paper paste through a stencil, picking elements that seemed to fit the Victorian style. Once I had created the main composition from mould pieces and various mechanicals, it was time to put the mica powders to use again!

I love the new Golden Hour mica powders, they're so versatile and have such a great range of complimentary colours. I used the green to tie in with the canvas background, the brown for some shadow, the golds for areas of interest, and the beautiful teal to make everything really pop!

I really love how this project turned out and can't wait to see what project I can use my mica powders on next! There's a video of the whole process for you here: 

Happy crafting :)
