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 :)

An old man at sea by Karolina Bukowska

My thoughts go to the sea ...

a warm breeze, sun rays on your face and the blue of the sky.

I am already dreaming about vacation ... looking for water and joyful splashing with my daughter.

Today I have a marine-themed canvas for you.

I’m like the man in the photo, I’m looking for holiday madness.

  I need energy and that's why I chose Liquid Acrylic- Lime Green.

An energetic color that blends perfectly with blue, green and turquoise.

It was fun to play with color and mixing them.

I love Liquid acrylic - their saturation and colors delight me. You can create permanent mists from them. You must try them out !!
