July 2019 challenge

We are in a middle of sunny summer. There are more lazy days. More opportunities to spend evenings and even nights out. Beautiful, romantic sunsets, flowers on the meadows, windy coastal weather, big waves, sunny beaches. Even at home the mood is lighter, everyone acts slower and finds more time to relax over a cup of tea or iced coffee. The colours are more intense and the temperature is higher. Our current moodboard reflects all above and we hope will inspire you to create something close to your heart and soul.

Our design team created projects inspired by our moodboard:

Hello mixed media friends! This month we have this gorgeous, bright and colorful moodboard! I was inspired to create this Frame and looking forward to see the projects you will create! 

The back center of the frame and the center of the chipboard clock were cut from the gorgeous Dreamer papers collection by 7dots studio, and the Bug from Sticky Notes - Lost and found collection also by 7 dots studio. 

The frame was primed with white heavy gesso. When everything dried, I added texture with mini art stones and gel medium and white crackle paste. The source of the colors are Alcohol inks. Chipboard and resin elements were coloured with Art Alchemy Metallique paints. (all products listed below) 

I hope you like it and you feel inspired to join our challenge!

Mixed media place supplies:

Hi friends! Our new moodboard inspired me with wonderful colours and big plants, and I created mixed media banner about part of garden.

To create a background I used Liquid Acrylics - Umbra and Deep Turquoise. These products have become my favorite ones since I tried them.
Also I used unusual combination, it's wax Aged Brass and Blue mica powder. It was very interesting experiment.

To create this composition, I used metal embellishments from different sets, cut pictures of stamps and pieces of resist canvas. All paper details I cut from 7 Dots Studio paper - Paint Chips and highlighted some places on them using distress ink.

I prepared video tutorial and hope it will be interesting for you!

I wish you inspiration and see you soon!

Mixed Media Place supplies:

Hello everyone! Our board this month inspired me to create a kitchen box. I borrowed the design idea from Anna Dabrowska (Сanvas "The ARTifact"). I took an old spoon, like the ones on the picture, added drops of different sizes to them and created a ray effect.
