Guest Designer: Mixed Media Frame by Hina Mirza

Hello friends,
Today is the very last day of our current challenge and we have for you a gorgeous inspiration created by our Guest Designer: Hina Mirza. Her project is off-the-page 3-dimensional frame created with lots of Finnabair products and also 7 Dots Studio Word Stickers. Most of the products are available in our store. Be inspired by Hina's project and create some art. If you will not enter this month challenge, which is closing today at midnight, tomorrow we will have a new moodboard for you.




Myself Hina, currently living in UK with my loving family. Basically, I'm from India.
I did Masters in IT but Art is my passion. It is not just a hobby, but something that defines me. I used to work in clay art for about 6 years and started to explore mixed media and scrapbooking 3 years back. Loving it to bits. Creating textures and layers is bliss and I find joy working on each project. I love doing layouts, albums and mixed media in any form. There is still so much to learn and explore.. the journey seems to be endless. I just hope for the best!



The current MMP challenge moodboard is so fascinating, full of beautiful summery colours. I have altered a wooden door, one of the lovely designs from Woodouts. I wanted to use all the colours from the moodboard on this project.




I have used mediums, paint, waxes and spray from Finnabair and Lindy's. Those gorgeous pieces of chippies are from 2 Crafty Chipboard and flowers from Prima Marketing. I tried to give a mystic touch to this door with that word sticker from 7 Dots Studio. I love adding layers and small bits and details to all my Mixed Media Projects and I am happy with the result I achieved here in this project.

Mixed media tag by Nadya Drozdova


Hello everyone! Here is Nadya Drozdova with new project and a video tutorial. This time I made a tag using a lot of Finnabair`s mixed media products and Dusty Attic chipboard.



I created dark background using stencil, Impasto paint and waxes. I cut some pieces from A.B studio papers and added some Prima marketing flowers.




The whole process you may watch in my video! Thank you for your attention and wish you happy crafting!

Natural findings by Kasia Salmanowicz


Hello everyone!

This time I decided to decorate MDF box. It can be used to keep your favorite mixed media products or other small items of everyday use. For my project I used Finnabair mediums that you can find in Mixed Media Place store and also natural pieces of wood , HDF decors and metal accessories. I also added a few pieces of linen fabric.





At the beginning I covered my box with white gesso. I also applied structural paste through Finnabair stencil to create some texture. Using Soft Matte Gel and Heavy Body Gel, I glued the elements. To add a bit of colour, I used Dark Brown Impasto paint and liquid acrylic paint that perfectly works diluted with water.






All this can be seen on the video that I made for you. See how natural elements can be combined with typically craft accessories.



Have a nice day,

Kasia Salmanowicz
