"Let your beautiful soul shine" altered Lizard on Egg with Prima and Finnabair

Hi dear crafty friends :)

Do you love lizards? I absolutely adore their colors! They look so magical and so mystical to me. And ever since I first saw this silver plated lizard in one of the local stores, I wanted to make him shine! And now his time has come. I just loooove how this little guy turned out! What do you think?

Prima and Finnabair patina pastes, art alchemy sparks and opal magics and color blooms were just perfect combination to alter it. I put it on a big egg which I altered with real egg shells, some alcohol inks and white gesso. And I made him a king of his world! ;)

Hope you'll like my new project. There is also new tutorial on my youtube channel for you to play around a bit! :) Enjoy the day and see you soon!

Hugs, Aleksandra

Heritage road art journal with Prima and Finnabair

Hi dear friends, I'm with you today again with some fresh Finnabair and Prima inspiration for you. From our fabulous 7 kids Your crafting supply store I received this gorgeous Tiny Frank Garcia journal with thick chipboard covers and pages. It's awesome! At first I wanted to use it for a mini album, but then changed my mind precisely because of this gorgeous thick pages that have enough of place in between to add lots of dimensional embellishments. So I decided to turn it into art journal pages. Today I share with you the first two art journal pages I made. Hope you'll like them. :)

Here are the supplies I used from the 7 kids Your crafting supply store:
- Prima marketing Frank Garcia Tiny Journal
- Prima marketing IOD Water soluble oil pastels
- Prima marketing acrylic paint sparks Butterfly Spells
- Prima marketing Mini art stones
- Prima marketing flower bouquets
- Prima marketing Antique Tub
- Prima marketing metal signs

Thank you for stopping by and have a great and fabulous day! :)
Hugs, Aleksandra

Cherry blossom wedding album with 23 Karat gilding

Hi dear Wild Orchid Crafts friends,

I'm with you again today, this time with some fresh inspiration for Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. As I mentioned before we were challenged for the month of July to go out of our commfort zones and create something unusual for us. So I decided to create something I really don't do often - an album. Actually it is a cherry blossom wedding album for a couple that got married this year and to make it even more extraordinary I added a real 23 Karat gilding. I love the outcome and hope you'll like it too. :)

 You can find Wild Orchid Crafts products I used in their online store HERE:

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your day and see you soon!
Hugs, Aleksandra

"Our Sweet Home memories" altered paintbrush with Scrapiniec and Prima

This post wasn't planned today but sometimes things in life just go unexpected ways. So I'm sharing today with you one more project of mine with gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards from one of my favourite new collections Mamma's Porch. Those adorable sweet images remind me of a home and carefree childhood days and I'm specially fond of them. I had in my mind an idea to alter a paintbrush for some time now, but didn't knew exactly what I wanted to make out of it. But when I saw this collection I knew right away. I love how it turned out. Hope you'll like it to. :)

I used few different Scrapiniec chipboards pieces that you can find in their online store:

There is also a video tutorial on my youtube channel. The link is at the end of the post.

Thank you so much my dear friends for stopping by and have a great day!
