Altered Summer Lighthouse

Hey hoy again my friends. 

Well today is obviously a very special day. I'm sharing my second inspiration with you today, this time for amazing Lindy's gang sprays, magicals and embossing powders. For this month I prepared a sweet summer inspiration - an altered Summer Lighthouse. 




Altered Summer Beach House

Hi dear crafty friends,

I have the honour to inspire on Scrapiniec blog today again as their Brand Ambassador. Usually I share my past projects from the previous month, but this time, I decided to do a twist on it and share also a completely new project. I think this will make it more exciting for you and for me! ;)

I made a Summer Beach House with gorgeous Scrapiniec 3D model "La Petite Boutique", beautiful and fresh "Fern" collection and elements from some other collections from this and previous year. Hope you'll like it!

You can find all the Scrapiniec products used in their online store.

Lindy's July color challenge

Hi dear Lindy's friends and fans. Today starts new color challenge over at Lindy's gang blog. Color Moodboard for this month was inspired by one of Lindy's amazing DT member's creation that we all loved to bits! And here is my take on it! I made an altered paintbrush, using fun quote "Too Fabulous to fit in" and a colorfull image of a giraffe from talented artist Kathleen Morris.

"Believe in Yourself" canvas art

How are you my dear crafty friends? Are you enjoying your summer Holidays? I'm quite bussy, although I though I will have some free time these days. But... that only means I have some fresh inspiration for you, which is kind of a good news right? :) I'd like to share today with you Canvas art, that I made with gorgeous AB studio stencils from Aga Baraniak, some gorgeous Lindy's gang Magicals and one of the recent Nitwit digital collections. I used stencil ID-68, which is in fact one of my favourite ones and you can find it HERE. I hope you'll like it! :)

"School days are over" altered alarm clock for Graphic 45

Hi dear crafty friends and Graphic 45 fans,

I'm with you on my blog again today, to share my second Graphic 45 project for this month. The school is over and my kids are enjoying their first days of summer holidays. Although my work gets kind of put asside in summer time, since my kids are also keeping me busy during the day, and a lot of work has to be done when everybody is asleep, I still enjoy summer days when things get a bit slower and days more peaceful. And you know what I love most these days? My alarm clock doesen't buzz off in the middle of the night.

So this alarm clock from Tim Holtz was just a perfect fit together with gorgeous Graphic 45 "An ABC Primer" Deluxe collector's edition to make a project for the end of the School days. Hope you'll like it!

"Learning to fly" altered Distress ink pad

Hi dear crafty friends,

Today I'm guest designing over at fabulous Mixed media and Art blog. This month's challenge is just awesome, I love the colors so much, so be sure to join us. So many of you asked me to make a video tutorial for my altered Distress ink pad that I shared with you few days ago, that I decided to make another, a bit different one, and also add a tutorial. I was inspired by this month's Mixed media and Art Moodboard, by it's gorgeous colors and also by gorgeous textures on the first photo, by amazing white flowers that reminded me of resin embellishments, by the beautiful blue bottles, by the feathers and by the gorgeous butterfly. It was such a joy playing with this project! I hope you'll like it and it maybe be inspired by it!

"Be fearless and brave" altered Distress ink pad

Hi my dear crafty friends,

Today starts new challenge in fb group 7 kids customers create. The theme for this challenge is "Distress ink". Oh boy... you know... I was kind of squeezed into a corner here. I love distress inks... I love the gorgeous cute colorful boxes they are stored in, but... in mixed media I don't often use them though. So I had few pads but soon figured they were mostly dry. So I decided to go out of the box and altered one of them to show you how you can always join the challenge even though in a different way.

Summer altered Door Wreath

Hi dear crafty friends,

Today I'm on Magiczna Kartka blog again! I have something a bit different today. It's summer time, everything is blossoming and the nature is in full swing. And our home needed some Summer fling too, so I decided to alter a door wreath. I used gorgeous "Midsummer Night's Dream" collection from Magiczna kartka. Hope you'll like  and maybe go and make one for yourself.

I used various sheets of Midsummer Night's Dream collection and just a pinch of Sonnets of Eden collection to spice things up a bit :)

"Smell the Flowers" altered box with a Secret Garden in a Tea cup

Hi my dear crafty friends,

Well... I can say that today is a very very special day for me. Today I'm sharing with you my first inspiration as a proud Brand Ambassador of amazing Graphic 45. This was my long-time wish and I'm so so happy that my dreams finally came true. 

For the month of June Brand Ambassadors were asked to join this month's Graphic 45 challenge, which is to create a "Self-portrait" project. That does not necessarily mean that you have to include your photo into the project, but more for you to make a project that reflects you, yout favourite techniques and materials used.

I was thinking for some time what to make and decided eventually to join three beautiful Graphic 45 collections - Botanical Tea Deluxe edition, Little Darlings Deluxe collection and Floral Shoppe - into an altered box with a Secret garden in a Tea cup and a little girl releasing the butterflies into the Garden.

If you are feeling the same, then you'll love this month's Color challenge over at Lindy's blog. I love this gorgeous combination of warm yellow, green and red-pink tones.

Chess exploding box for communion

Hi dear crafty friends,

Today I'm again with you on Magiczna kartka blog and mine. I have an exploding box for you, this time a bit different one. I had to tie it to the chess, so I used chessmat and a chess figure to which I added angel wings. I used gorgeous "Toward the Rainbow" collection from Magiczna kartka, which is just perfect for boy's cards, where you don't need any extra images or cut-outs! It's also perfect to combine with all other collections! It's just amazing! I love it! 








As mentioned, I used papers from "Toward the Rainbow" collection that you can find in their webshop:


Besides using Magiczna kartka papers I used lots and lots of amazing Scrapiniec chipboards perfect for the communion, that you can find in their online shop HERE.

I also added some lovely Little Birdie flowers.

Hope you'll like my exploding box and it brings you maybe some inspiration for your own work and for use of gorgeous Magiczna kartka papers.

Enjoy your day and see you soon!

Hugs, Aleksandra

Shattered life, Spine of steel

Hi dear crafty friends

Today I'm on my blog with you with my first DT post as a member of AB Studio by Aga Baraniak Design team. I love the stencil I received, the designs are absolutely gorgeous and the quality of the stencils is amazing! You have to try them, you won't regret it!

For quite some time now I've had my eyes on latest Dina Wakley Media Journal and my dear friend Klavdija, who owns a store Darilnica Klavdija, ordered it for me, so I was very anxious to try it off. I decided to join both of them together! I used illustration from amazing Carne Griffith as inspiration and part of my journal. After all the pain and hard things in my life in the last few years this illustration really spoke to me and Carne kindly let me use it for my art journal piece. He is not just a great artist, but also a great man! His pieces are timeless.

I absolutely love the result I got! Hope you'll like it too!

Lindy's gang May challenge

Hi my dear crafty friends,

Today is first day of the month, which means new challenge on Lindy's gang blog. This month we have such gorgeous color palette, so many beautiful, warm colors. I believe each one of you can find yourself a color combination to work with within this palette. I love it. It reminded me of summer actually and since the photo besides it features a star, I decided to alter a small plate in a shape of starfish. I really really love how this turned out and I hope you'll like it too!
