Love the earth by Inna Bronikova


Hello, friends!
What media product do you use more often than others?
I use White Gesso more often than other products.


So, first I covered canvas with White Gesso, then I used Modeling Paste and an Iris Tapestry stencil to create the texture.



For substrates, I took 7 Dots Studio paper from various collections and Elements Stickers.
Using 3D Gloss Gel I bound all layers and decor.



A little stamping with StazOn, a little bit of wax and the canvas is ready.

Protect your magic by Lisa Rabellino


Hi creative souls!
Today I created this easy mixed media heart "Protect Your Magic" playing with Alchemy Paints and other Finnabair products!


To start I brushed two coats of white gesso on my chipboard heart.
I made a little stamping using Prima clear stamps with archival ink pad. 
I used Art Extravagance Golden Nugget through Prima Marketing stencil. So I added colors to my background with Finnabair's Alchemy Paint with a bit of water to blend the colors as well.



I took my Art Daily "Words You Need" booklet and I chose a picture that inspired me. I made some "fairy wings" stamped a butterfly from Finnabair Dare To Dream cling stamps on a piece of vellum and I embossed it with white powder.


I glued all my embellishments down adding also flowers and paper die-cuts.
Finally with Soft Matt Gel I added micro beads and glitter here and there

Happy Place by Olga Ravenskaya


Hi dear friends!
It's Olga Ravenskaya here today with my new project and video tutorial.
What is hidden behind every door?
A warm and friendly house, or maybe an inner world, or good vibes, or dreams and wonders?
With thoughts of it I've created a home decor piece - the Door which could mean any of those things.


To create a texture I've applied Taupe Rose Rust Effect Paste mixing it with Art stones.



I've painted the door with Metallique paints and added beautiful shimmer using Sparks paints and Waxes.
All the chipboard is covered by Metallique paints and embossing powders.



As a final touch I added Sterling Glass Glitter as a topping.





Here is my process video, hoping you'll enjoy it.



Thank you for stopping by!
Let your door lead you to a wonderful world!

Olga

Guest Designer: Marina Soskova

Hello everyone My name is Maria Soskova, I do not remember how old I am, in my heart I am still a child, and it does not matter that two daughters have already grown up ))))) I have always been making, sewing, knitting, scrapbooking, but I started to be more engaged in 2014 and everything tightened me seriously and I stayed ) If we are talking about my style, I do not have any special preferences - all the time I has been trying new things. In my works I like multi-layering and multi-detailing. I love creating altered objects from scratch. So I decided to make Christmas trees as gifts for family and friends.


To create imitation of fir trees, I made a cone out of paper and my husband filled them with polyurethane foam. When it dried it was ready to work with. 


I glued the decor of beads and flowers onto the blank base, then I applied texture paste. Then painted with metallic paints, wax, and on top a little dusted with white gesso. In the end, I sprinkled with topping and glitter.
