"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.

Hi my dear blog friends,

It's just four months since my dear dad went to Heaven and my family is allready facing new struggles. So this photo realy spoke to me and I decided to make an art journal page with it. It makes me feel better when I can put my thoughts, doubts and fears onto the paper. 

Here I used amazing AB studio stencils from talented Aga Baraniak, that you can find in her shop HERE. I used two beautiful stencils: 

I also used some gorgeous Lindy's gang products and Finnabair acrylic paints.

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.

Hi dear Lindy's gang fans,

I can't believe it's allready June!!! Summer here I come!!! :D No seriously, I can't wait for sun, sea and a little off time. What about you? 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!

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!
