"Color your life" artist palette box

Quite some time ago I made my first artist palette box. It was quite different from the one I'm going to share with you today. I made this one as a Guest Designer over at Scrap Africa blog, where design team members with amazing Denise honoured me with a "Top Hat" award for my previous entry to the challenge. When I saw the gorgeous Mood board colors I knew right away what I'm going to make.


I used lots of 13 arts mediums and also papers from "Aura Rosa" collection and added lots of Scrapiniec chipboard embellishement and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I hope you'll like it. There is video tutorial for you at the end of the post.

Thank you again to the amazing team of Scrap Africa for this wonderful opportunity. And to all of you... don't forget to play along with this months gorgeous challenge! I'm looking forward seeing your entries. :)

And while I have the chance, I'm thrilled to share with you yet another amazing news. I'll be also joining Wild Orchid Crafts Design team for the year 2017. I'm so happy and so honoured and looking forward creating with their gorgeous flowers in the team of an amazing artists. Thank you so much Wild Orchid Crafts for the honour and for this amazing opportunity. Hop over also to Wild Orchid Crafts blog for tons of inspiration!

Have a great day my friends!

"Dream Garden" ballerina shoes

I just love turning unusual objects into art. And these ballerina shoes were no exception. I have my book of ideas where I put down everything that pops in my mind and I think it could be great for a project. I had my Ballerina shoes in there for quite some time. But since I haven't had the idea quite clear yet on what to do with them, they stayed safe inside. But few days ago I got the idea on how to upgrade them to art and although I didn't quite know what I should do next, I went with the flow. And this is what came out of it. I have to say I adore them! They will be hanging in my daughter's bedroom to warm her heart each day!

I also made a video, if you want to make one for yourself. Hope you'll like it!

Hugs,
Aleksandra

"Be yourself"

I have a really rich project to share with you today. For some time I've had in my mind the idea to make a mixed media dress on a dress form which would be covered with feathers. Yesterday I finally had the time to start making one. I made a dress form from 13 arts paper with the help of my Cricut and then dressed it, using lots of 13 arts mixed media goodness. I finally decided to upgrade the project and incorporate the dress into a reverse canvas. I used a lot of Scrapiniec chipboards and some Wild Orchid craft gorgeous flowers. I've also made a youtube tutorial for you - this time a little bit longer, since it was quite advanced project with lots of details.

I hope you'll like it! :)
Have a great day!

Parisian Cafe

One of my biggest dreams is to visit Paris once. I just love that idea since I was a little girl. And this is quite a long time now. :D Have you been there yet? They say it is so beautiful and sooo romantic. And when I first saw the Graphic 45 collection "Cafe Parisian" I fell in love with it immediately. Not to mention that the color range of the collection was totaly perfect for me! When I got the Scrapiniec "Bistro de Paris" chipboard collection in my hand I realized they were just perfect together. So I made this shadow box with French street, Parisian Cafe and Pastry shop. I added lots of gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts Roses. I hope you'll like it! As usual there is also a youtube tutorial at the end of this post.

Enjoy the weekend dear friends! :)
Hugs,
Aleksandra

"Nature sketchbook" art journal page

I admired all of the art journal pages out there for some time now but I kind of couldn't gather the courage to make one myself. But yesterday I decided to jump right into in. And let me tell you... I enjoyed it so so much and I'm looking forward finding some time to create some more art journal pages.

For my first one I chose "Nature Sketcbook" from newest Graphic45 paper collection. And of course I added a lot of 13arts goodies, gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards and few Wild orchid crafts small green roses. I hope you'll like it. I'll be happy to hear your opinion. I've also made a new youtube tutorial for you to go along. I'll be happy if you like it, share it and subscribe if you liked my video. :)

Have a great day!
Hugs,
Aleksandra
