“Blooming Garden” Altered Box and Money Gift Envelope

Hello again dear friends. Here I am again with my first Graphic 45 inspiration in this year. I decided to
use one of the gorgeous Graphic 45 collections that I haven’t had the opportunity to work with yet -
the Flutter Collection. It is simply amazing. I altered an ATC G45 Box and made a Blooming Garden
with a Water Fountain. This beautiful Box is perfect for a gift to someone you love and cherish, so I also made a Money Gift Envelope to go along. Hope you'll like my project and it brings you some inspiration! <3

Finnabair's New Metal frames

Hello dear friends,

I have another project to share with you from the upcoming new Finnabair release. For all of those who love altering objects, this release will be perfect! There are several new metal frames coming in shops and I absolutely adore them. One of them that I received early to try out is this gorgeous Birdhouse. I altered it into a House for an Owl, using warm autumn tones. I used several art alchemy paints and rust paste in combination with new waxes and mica powders. All these will be soon available in your favourite stores! Hope you'll like them like I do!

I also used several amazing Dusty Attic chipboards for this project. I love these chippies! they are perfect for every mixed media project. They are sturdy and available in all these amazing shapes. You can find them in their online store:

Hi my dear friends,

I'm sure you've allready seen the new release from Prima by Finnabair? It is AMAZING! I've had the honours and joy to try of both allready and I'm totally totally in love! The new Unicorn paste is a must, specially for all who like to create dreamy and magical projects. It is easy to apply and has a transparent finish with lots of sparkle You can apply it on top of every color it suits you or even mixed it with some colors or mica powders to create your own unique paste. And the new waxes are stunning too! They have added pigment inside, which makes them really special and gives them good coverage! I love them and the new colors are so so beautiful! Oh and not even mentioning... they smell absolutely delicious! Both Unicorn paste and new waxes are an absolute MUST HAVE for all who love enjoying in Mixed Media art. I'm sure you'll love them to bits.

I've played with them a bit and made this beautiful Unicorn out of a Horse, with a sleigh carrying an important message from Finnabair Art Daily release: "Quit hiding your magic. The world is ready for you!".

Dream moments to Remember

Hello dear friends,

I'm very excited to share with you my Dusty Attic inspiration for the month of January. I was always in love with these gorgeous Dusty Attic Dreamcatchers and it felt perfect for the first month of the year to use them on my planner. This is the time when we analize our past year, make plans and dream sweet dreams for the year to come. But it is also important not to forget that it is the small everyday moments that count most and make our lives rich.

I used few of my favourite Dusty Attic chipboards in the combination with AB Studio papers "Dreamland". I covered the big Dusty Attic Dreamcatcher with Finnabair Dusty Rose Impasto paint and on top of it with two Texture Fantasy Rust Pastes "Taupe Rose" and "Cream". On the background paper I used beautiful Dusty Attic Distressed Diamonds stencil. I couldn't avoid using also the perfect Dusty Attic quote from Quoted Sentiments collection. It fitted perfectly.

I added some stamping and some white splashes with diluted white acrylic paint. I love the effect it gives to the project. 

Dusty Attic products used for the project:

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you liked my project and it inspired you to dream and to create something beautiful! I wish to you an amazing Year 2019.

Hugs, Aleksandra

"Be in the moment" Altered Winter Lantern

Hi dear Finnabair friends and fans,

Christmas is very very near, knocking on the door! Soon it will be New Year's day. I love Christmas and New Year. It always reminds me of my childhood memories, which I cherish so much more, since both my parents are now gone way too soon. I remember Christmas as beeing special time of the year, when everything slowed down and there was enough time for some beautiful Family moments. Time spent together, making memories to cherish for life. But I noticed that things are changing in the last few years. Life is getting too bussy and we are constantly chasing some things that we still have to do. And we so easily forget what really matters in this special and precious time of the year. 

Inspired by that thought I have today for you an altered Lantern that reminds me of cozy and warm Christmas moments in our Homes with those we love. "Be in the moment" this Holidays. Not to chase arround to catch as many shallow Holiday moments as possible, but just to enjoy in those few special ones. 

I was looking for such Lantern to alter for quite some time and it just happened so that it came to my path right on time to make this poject for you.
