Never give up by Lisa Rabellino

Hi creative souls!
I'm so excited to be here with my first post as MMP dt member!
I created this mixed media canvas for my craft room, to help me to focus on what is very important in my life at this moment.....never give up!

I used a lot of Finnabair mixed media products for this project.
To start I brushed a coat of Finnabair's white heavy gesso. I made a little stamping with Finnabair's cling stamps with archival black ink and then I used Modelling Paste through Prima Marketing stencil. So I added colors to my background with Finnabair's Art Alchemy paints with a bit of water.

I made some embellishments using Prima moulds and cutting some elements from AB studio patterned papers.

I painted the doily chipboard with the Finnabair Raven Black acrylic paint sparks because I really love its shiny effect. I also used this color to paint some papers embellishments.

So I glued everything down with tacky glue and when dried I gently applied White gold wax on some details.
I added Art ingredients with Soft matt gel and made some splatters with Impasto white paint diluted with a bit of water

You can watch all the procedure here in my video:

Dream Garden by Olga Ravenskaya

Hi dear friends!
It's Olga Ravenskaya here today and I'm so excited to share my debut project as a member of MMP Team.

Have you seen our gorgeous October moodboard? I'm in love with the deep colors and the fall mood of it. So here is my Dream Garden canvas totally inspired by the beautiful pic in the corner with green, blue and orange shades of colors.

Firstly I've primed the surface with a mixture of black and white gesso. Then to create a texture I've used Rust Effect Pastes, Cool Grey and Blue Green, and after that - applied White Sand Paste and White Gold Icing Paste through the stencil.

To alter all the chipboard and die cuts I've used Metallique and Sparks Acrylic Paints and Lindy's Sprays and Embossing powders.

As a final touch I tinted all the flowers, leaves and lace with Metallique Paints and added Art stones, Gold Ruch Glass Glitter and Micro Beads for the toppings.

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

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafty day!

Mixed media bookmarks by Maria Lillepruun

Dear Mixed Media Place friends!
Greetings! This is my first blog post for this beautiful blog, and I am very happy to share with you my art. I am a huge book fan, so here is something that I wanted to make for a long time already: the mixed media bookmarks for my books! I am sure this glamorous couple is just a start for a much bigger collection in the future. And they are a great gift for friends too, aren't they?

I like to recycle my art and craft products´packages, so I used one for the base of my bookmarks. I strengthened them from the backside with a textile tape, and covered the all with Heavy Black Gesso. So the bookmarks turned out pretty flexible and elastic. Then, I added some color and texture using a turquoise embossing powder and a heat tool. The next step: white modeling paste through a 7 Dost Studio stencil, to create more texture. 

The bookmarks need to be totally flat, so the only decorations I could allow here were paper die cuts and some stamps. I glued them all on, and colored the bookmarks and the embellishments with golden, blue and black acrylic paints - all sparky and shiny! I also added some blue glitter on them, and sealed it all with Soft Gloss Medium, so there would be no chance for my bookmarks to leave any stains on the book pages.

Final touch: I added a beautiful brad and a faux crystal swinging element to the bookmarks to make them look even more chic. And voilà, everything is ready!

Thank you for your attention!
