September challenge


Warm colours, warm blanket and warm, sweet cocoa. Just Autumn. Each season has its good sides :) Let's focus on them and wrap ourselves up in them. We hope our moodboard will inspire you to create something comforting.

Our design team created projects inspired by our moodboard.


hi everyone! This month's moodboard has enchanted me! Those colors made me think quickly about the final summer sunsets at the seaside with that smell of salt and the sound of the waves... Yes, those sunsets are the ones that recharge the soul!


I have created this layout using sunset tones and creating layers to add some texture to the project.




I hope you enjoy it!

Hello friends! Our wonderful moodboard inspired me with its stunning color palette. I immediately wanted to create a piece of bright autumn on the canvas. For interesting composition I used huge dry leaf which I found in the summer.





Among Art Alchemy paints there are amazing pink and red shades and I used my favorite ones - Wild Fuchsia, Romance Pink and Red Wine. For the contrast I used Royal Blue and, of course, waxes. They are my love because they look amazing in every project. I chose "autumn" colours: Bronze Age, Fire Ruby, Aged Brass, Vintage Gold. Not an autumn color, but also wonderful here, is the Old Silver, which supports the white color in my work.







I prepared video tutorial for you and I hope you will like it!

Olga Ravenskaya - September Guest Designer

Olga Ravenskaya is our this month Guest Designer. She has created amazing altered glass bottle using tones of Finnabair's products available in our store. Meet Olga!






Hello dear friends!
It's Olga Ravenskaya here and I'm so exited to share my project for the beautiful August Challenge!
I'd like to say a huge Thank you to MMP team for the invitation, it's a great honor and pleasure!
I live in a beautiful southern city Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Almost 3 yaers ago fell in love with scrapbooking and now it's my hobby and passion!
My heart belongs to paints, flowers and paper, I'm strictly addicted to mixing colors and textures, to find out new shades, to learn and try everything new :)
I do love to make home decor pieces to decorate my home and for a present to my friends and beloved people.



I'm totally in love with the August moodboard with its tender romantic mood, beautiful flowers, sunny colors and shiny effects. So I've made the Flower Vase with a glass bottle inside it. 

















I've used lots of Finnabair's goodies - Texture Fantasy pastes, Opal and Metallique paints, Waxes and Art Stones.
Hope you've enjoyed it!
Olga
