Perfection is overrated by Lanette Erickson

Hello all you lovely crafty souls!

Today, I'm sharing a tiny mixed media canvas packed full of beautiful purples! I used a mix of Finnabair's Amazing acrylics to bring this canvas together. My inspiration came from the pack of Rusty Labels, once I read this label I knew I had to use it. Paired with a resin corset from my stash my canvas came together. 

With a simple touch of  White Gold Wax the Rusty Label  was transformed to shiny to match this sparkly canvas.

For final touches I  had to add a bit of sparkle with Magic Potion Effect Paste, I just love the sparkle this paste creates!

If you would like to see how I created this canvas start to finish you can watch it on my YouTube channel I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope I have inspired you to get a little paint on your hands! Hugs, until next time have fun creating!

Guest Designer: Yulya Chorna

Hello everyone!

My name is Yulya Chorna. I live in Lviv, a beautiful city in western Ukraine. I am 32 years old.

I discovered scrapbooking a long time ago but started creating just for three  years. Why so? Because I never had enough time for this. I was always busy with my education (btw, I have a masters degree in Finances :)), my previous job, kids etc.

So I always thought “maybe later” but when I gave birth to my third child I understood that I must do something because I just will go crazy. And with three kids in the house I started creating! Yes, it turned out that it's possible to create in any conditions.You just need to have a desire!

My favorite products in scrap are:

- First of all, Paper. Nice paper = beautiful work (if you have quality products, your creation looks great anyway);

-Paints. If you have paints you can create the background for your work by yourself;

- Flowers. I just can’t imagine my crafts without flowers. They give a special look to all works and make them live and natural;

- Metallic elements - I don’t know why but I love to add them to my crafts as well.



I hope you enjoyed celebrating the New Year 2021 :)

The first present I got from 2021 was the energy, inspiration, and more time/opportunities for scrapbooking :) So I am happy to share with you my first work in 2021 - decorated photo frame in light-golden winter tones, decorated with the essential attributes of winter holidays - Christmas tree twigs and toys.

On this occasion, I also want to wish everyone a successful and productive 2021 year! May 2021 you will allow you to implement all plans and achieve all goals! May your dreams come true in 2021 :)

In a shape of a heart by Natalya Trofimova

Today I come to you with this beautiful winter panel in the shape of a heart.

It looks very impressive despite the simple work with the background.

First, I painted the background with Night Shadow and Green Goblin acrylic paints, at the base I created a gradient from white to dark. Then applied matte gel and Icing paste Unicorn through the stencil.

Then I put wax on the surface of the pattern and sprinkled it with white paint.

It remains to add decor and toppings - microbeads and mica flakes.

I congratulate you on the New Year and wish you pleasant creativity!

Hugs, Natalya
