Eerie brush by Lanette Erickson

Hello All You Lovely Crafty Souls!

Today I am sharing an Altered Paint Brush featuring one of Finn's AMAZING New Moulds. I just love this new release. The variety is crazy amazing and I am slowly acquiring them all!

For this bush I decided to use the Wings & Bones Mould, the elements are the perfect size for this project. I started by pouring a mix of Bones, Wings and a Skull.  After I poured the Skull I trimmed the lower jaw off altering his look just a bit. Next I started adding texture & sparkle with Graphite Paste and Metallic Flakes. Finally it was time for layers of color with a mix of Liquid Acrylic and Waxes. 

I am really happy with how this brush turned out, it's not really my typical style but it was definitely fun to create!  And after all that is all that really matters. 

If you would like to see how I altered these brushes, you can check it out over on my YouTube channel start to finish..

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope I have inspired you in some small way to get out of your comfort zone and get a little paint on your hands! Until next time, 

Hugs & Have fun creating!

Mysterious Box by Marina Ignatova

Hello, friends!

Today I want to share the idea of using several identical elements in the decor. In my case, these are the doors that I cut out of Ab studio paper, and the keys to them. Thanks to this technique, the final project looks interesting and even a little mystical.

Watch my video tutorial and get inspired!

Be gentle by yourself by Lisa Rabellino

Hi creative souls!

today it's Lisa Rabellino on the blog to show you a new mixed media card with AB Studio papers and Finnabair products!

To start I cutted a piece of patterned paper from Diva AB Studio pad and I brushed it with a coat of clear gesso to protect the design. I glued my piece of paper on another piece of watercolor paper and then on my card. After that I made a little stenciling with Finnabair Paper Paste and I added above some Finnabair Mini Art Stones before it's dry.

I chose Art Alchemy Liquid Paints and I used Blue Prussian color with a little bit of water to blend as well. These colors are very extraordinary because once dry they become permanent. 

So I made stamping with black archival ink.

From another paper of the AB Studio pad I cutted some leaves and flowers, so I glued my embellishments down and I added other details.

I took some Melange Art Pebbles and I coloured them with Crimson Art Alchemy Liquid Paint.

Finally with Soft Matt Gel I added micro beads and glass glitter here and there and I made splatters with Crimson Liquid paint to add more contrast.

I hope you enjoyed my mixed media card!

Thanks for stopping by with me!
