I was searching for some time to find Aladdin Lamp, I had a project idea in my mind and I so much wanted to make it! And I felt so happy when I found it. So today I present you an altered box with a story from 1001 nights - Aladin Lamp. Scrapiniec chipboards from the latest collections were just perfect to embellish my project and I love how it came out! Hope you'll like it to!

Dreamy Winter House

Winter time is one of my favourites when it comes to crafting and creating projects. I just love to build up those gorgeous dreamy and snowy landscapes. That is why I have some additional inspiration for you - Scrapiniec lovers this month. I have created another snowy project to inspire you! My winter house... Hope you'll like it!

I've used gorgeous Scrapiniec Royal hut and some additional chipboards that you can find in their online store:

but I've decided not to use all the colors, only four of them and I left out the red one. The Lindy's gang colors I've used are:

I've added some interest with gorgeous Digital papers from Skarlet Art.

Hope you'll like my project! Visit also Scrapiniec blog and leave some love there! Enjoy your winter days and see you soon again!

"Coffee Break" altered project for Lindy's gang

Hi my dear crafty friends,

I have a special honour today to be a guest desginer over at Lindy's gang blog. It's such a happy occasion for me! Those who know my work a bit know that I love to make off the page projects. And I love to create stories with them! I tried to do the same with my today's project. I altered a coffee maker which we weren't using anymore and added a cup of coffee and some cupcakes and sweets, all mixed media made. There is everything one needs for a perfect relaxed afternoon with friends.

I first made a coffee maker which I covered with white gesso and white crackle paste. I colored it with several coats of Lindy's Starburst sprays, you can find in their online shop:
- Icy Primrose Gold for the first coat,
- Cocklebells Coral for some shading here and there,
- Bratwurst Brown Magical Shaker and Cajun Carnelian Red Magical to emphasize some parts.

The coffee cup is colored with my favourite shades of Lindy's:
- Sassy Sapphire for the base coat
- Tibetan Poppy Teal for some highlights.

I used a bit lighter shade of blue for the cupcake trays - TiffanyLou Blue.
I found Creme Brulee Cream Starburst perfect for coloring of my whipped cream on top of the cupcakes and coffee. And I used Bayou Boogie Gold Magical for the batter and Bratwurst Brown Magical Shaker for the coffee. The coffee stains on the tray are made with Bratwurst Brown Magical Shaker mixed with some gel medium and some white texture paste and applied through a stencil. I've also added some additional color to the paper flowers, because I wanted them to match perfectly with the rest of the project. I used Bayou Boogie Gold for the yellow roses and Cajun Carnelian red for the orange roses.

In this project I paired amazing Lindy's with another amazing product - Graphic 45 papers. The Cafe Parisian collection was just perfect for the occasion.

There is a detailed video tutorial available on my youtube channel so you can follow through if you'd like to. :) I hope you'll like my project and that it maybe inspires you somehow!

Have a great day!
Hugs, Aleksandra
