It's Be a Dreamer by Lanette Erickson


Hello All you Wonderful Creative Souls!

I hope you all are enjoying the start of summer! For me the summer months get a bit busy, the kids are home and the house is loud. There simply is just more going on and it's harder to find time to create and when I do sometimes I struggle to get in the "Zone". When that happens I always look for a Mood Board and this time I found this month's Current Board over at the Art Daily Café. This month's board is full of amazing rusty goodness that is, Oh so Beautiful! I hope you like my take on it.

Playing off the gears from the mood board I started building my focal point. I was happy to see just how well the New Redesign Butterfly fits inside Finn's Grungy Frame, it's the perfect fit! Next I added touches of blue that I picked up from the boat in the mood board. 





After I was happy with my grungy layers of rust, I finished it all off with a bit of shine with a touch of White Gold Wax. If you would like to see my complete process you can check it out over on my YouTube Channel. 


Of course you can find all the Mixed Media Goodies I used in the Store! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you in some tiny way. 


Until Next Time Hugs,

Lanette

Quit hiding your magic by Lisa Rabellino

Hi creative souls!

Lisa Rabellino today on the blog to show you my latest mixed media project playing with a lot of Finnabair products and Liquid Acrylics Paints!

To start I brushed a piece of cardboard with Heavy Gesso. Then I used a stencil with Finnabair Paper Texture Paste.

To color the background I used Liquid Acrylic True Yellow, Deep Torquoise and Crimson that I blended with water to give a watercolor effect. Later I tapped White Heavy Gesso here and there to get a lightly effect and I made a little stamping with black archival ink.


I glued chipboards, flowers and a piece of heavy lace down using Heavy Body Gel. I also took some Finnabair Mechanicals with a few touches of waxes to give more details on my project. For the focal point of my tag I chose a sticker from Art Daily Words you Need.


To finish I added Finnabair Crystal Beads with Soft Matte Gel and I made splatters with Gold mica powder.

I hope you enjoyed my project today

Thanks for stopping by with me!
