We not only want you to feel inspired and create, but we also want you to feel uplifted and comforted. We want you to stop for a while and feel good, feel bliss, find some time for yourself and for things, you love...

To join our challenge you can create any type of project you wish - ATC, layout, card, canvas, off the page project, collage, art-journal spread and more. Just please let yourself be inspired by our moodboard.

Inspiration from our Design Team:

Love the inspiration moodboard and the colors, house and the flowers got my inspiration.
Painted a canvas with black gesso. Have used the lovely Bubbles stencil with Stone Effect Paste. When its dry I painted again with the black gesso.

Time to decorate and I do layers of resist canvas, chipboards and metallic embellishments.

Flowers and embellishments and the Art Stones are glued with 3D Gloss gel.

I use acrylic paint to do my coloring. And over the top wax, Aged Brass and I have it  over the embellishments and the background also.

To make some extra intrest I have  painted Art pebbles with Soft Gloss Gel and glitter.
Thank you and wish you lot of inspiration.

Hello dears! This month mood board so amazing! My favorite colors combination! This inspired me to alter a small wooden frame. I decided to create something fresh, airy and nature themed.

Something about Spring mood and freedom... To color the background I used Mica powders diluted with water, as mists. I really love to work with these powders in this way. It's very easy and the result so amazing!

 For the embellishments I used Art Alchemy Sparks. They just perfect for highlighting and to add a shine dreamy effect to your project.
Have a nice day!

Hello mixed media funs! Our April moodboard with so beautifuls colours inspired me to create new canvas. I opened my favorite Finnabair metallique acrylic paints - Deep Waters, Royal Blue, Red Wine, Romance Pink, Ice Queen, Silver Spoon, Soft Satin, and just enjoyed of process of creating.

On the base I added Modeling Paste and Paper Texture Paste to get an interesting texture. To brighten some parts of the background I used White Gesso. I colored the decorative elements with patina effect paste Brass, acrylic Impasto paints Jade and Pitch Black, added metallique paints and then waxes - Vintage Silk and Royal Robes. For decorate my composition I used die-cuts flowers, Finnabair metal embellishments and art pebbles.

Hello friends! We have absolutely gorgeous and magical Moodboard this month!
I really love dandelions, and with them I have so many pleasant memories!
I well remember how my mother showed them to me. And it was a great achievement - to learn how to blow on a dandelion))

In the work I used two different collections of 7 Dots Studio - Dreamer and Northen Lights.
Clear Gesso prepared the paper for work with paste and paints.
Acrylic paint and waxes added radiance, and a spray of shadows.
