January challenge

This month challenge moodboard is white, teal, brown, blue - feel free to be inspired by theme, shape, pattern, color, quote or anything you will find above :)

Inspiration from our Design Team:

Sylwia here:) I love the colours of this challenge and I decided to paint my mixed media fairy-girl. At first I used the Watercolours by Prima, I adore those little tins filled in with high pigmented paints:) Then I added elements from my favourite collection by 7 Dots Studio - Cotton Candy Dreams. I also added lots of doodles with pencils and some other details with Ecoline brush pen.

Mixed Media Place supplies:

For this challenge, I decided to create a layout. I have used 7 Dots Studio Verano Azul collection and I played with Prima Oil Pastels and added some texture using Finnabair media and stencil. Here is my layout:

And here are detailed photos:

For the challenge, I made a piggy bank from a box of tobacco !! (I remind you that smoking is bad for health, isn't it? !!!!)

And here is my video:

To create my tag I have used a few elements from our moodboard. I like a lot brown and blue color combo, so these are main colours in my project. I covered my tag base with Clear Gesso and started to embellish it. Focal point of my project is beautiful flower. I created a mixed-media background with lots of additional objects.
