"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.

Altered Bee Heart Bottle with Lindy's gang

Hi my dear sweet friends!

It's my turn today on Lindy's gang blog to share some inspiration with you. For some time now I wanted to alter a bottle and I felt right time finally came. So I decided to alter a bottle with a heart shaped stopper. The transformation proccess is actually quite simple, when using amazing Lindy's gang magicals. Did I ever tell you they are absolutely one of my favourite mediums to color with? I just love them to bits! I used magicals in some of my favourite teal shades - Shabby Turbine Teal, Time Travel Teal and Tibetan Poppy Teal. You can find them all in gorgeous Lindy's gang online store HERE

"Art is Freedom" mixed media Tag

Hi my dear crafty friends,

I'm a bit quiet here these days. I've been sick, I had severe pneumonia and sadly still not quite recovered yet. But it's getting better. Anna (aka Finnabair) is lately talking a lot about Art beeing a healing place, something we can run to when all seems overwhelming in this world and it is very beautifuly said. I find myself lately to often think about whether others will like my ideas behind my projects or not, when starting them. And it's good that we remember in these moments that art is for us and about us firstly and that it is our way of expressing ourselves and our emotions. We should not forget that. These thoughts inspired my today's mixed media Tag that I've made with gorgeous Graphic 45 "Old Curiosity Shoppe" DCE collection and Graphic 45 kraft tags, using also some fabulous Lindy's gang and Finnabair products.

"Moonlight Dreams and Whispers" for Finnabair

Hello dear friends! 

I'm so so excited and happy to be here with you for the first time as Finnabair Creative team member to inspire you and bring you some fresh ideas! I've created for you a project "Moonlight Dreams and Whispers".

My heart always skips a bit when getting an idea of altering some unusual objects and incorporating them into my projects. I had this idea of altering a reaping hook - sickle, but wasn't sure how to do it. But I somehow realized through the years, that you have to sometimes just jump in it and just enjoy creating and there is no doubt something beautiful will come out of it. I used it to support my composition. Can you spot it?

"Halloween in Wonderland" Altered Pumpkin Box

Hello my dear crafty friends. Today I'm back with you to share something from the Dark side of the world. Halloween is nearing and it's time to put that gorgeous re-released "Halloween in Wonderland" DCE collection from Graphic 45 into play. This is by far one of the best existing Halloween paper collections ever! At least for me! I just love it! And I love Alice in Wonderland, so this is just right my alley!

Some time ago I bought this ceramic pumpkin with lights and I really really wanted to alter it. And I decided to save it for this paper collection. I could just imagine how well they'll work together. I put the pumpkin on a Graphic 45 Black ATC Book Box, so I actually made a box and you can save some delicious Halloween treats in it! Isn't that fun?! I hope you'll like my project and it inspires you to make something with this amazing collection too!

Hi dear friends,

I'm here with yet another project today, this time I went a bit darker and altered a notebook.

And she made my wish come true.

"Life Journey" Sundial for September Mixed Media & Art

Hi my dear friends,

I'm here with you again today, to share my first project for the amazing Mixed Media & Art DT. I love this blog, so becoming a part of their Design Team was a special honour. I'm always inspired and pushed over my creative and imagination boundaries with their fabulous Moodboards. This month's Moodboard was no exception. From the first minute I saw it, I knew what I'll be making. I've had this idea about a Sundial - a sun clock in my mind for some time now, but without the final vision how to make it happen. With this moodboard it all became clear.

"Botanical Tea" Photo Album in a Tea Bag

Hi my dear friends,

I'm here with you today to inspire you with a new Graphic 45 project. If you are at least a bit of a mixed media soul, you'll probably be able to identify yourself with me, when it comes to throwing things into the garbage. Like those gorgeous paper bags that each hold one Tea bag?Aren't they just too cute to throw them out?! Well... I thought so! So I decided to instead use them like little pockets for tags with photos. It's a lovely way to replace classic photo albums. Of course I made a gorgeous box with an altered Tea cup to go along, using Graphic 45 Kraft ATC Book Box. I decorated everything with a perfect collection for it - Botanical Tea Deluxe Collector's Edition. Hope you'll like my idea and my project!

Mixed Media Altered Iron - Old Treasures Autumn Hop

Hi my dear sweet crafty friends!

Something exciting I have for you prepared today! I was so impatiently waiting for today to welcome you in our amazing "Old Treasures" Autumn Youtube Hop, where 15 amazing Artists from all over the world share their projects and tutorials inspired by the "Old Treasures" and Autumn. You don't want to miss it, because girls have done an amazing job and I honestly can't remember seeing so many awesome and unique ideas and projects at one place! And what's even better is that all the projects come with free tutorials on our youtube channels, showing many tips and techniques, to celebrate the beginning of the Autumn Season. But the story doesn't end here either. You can take part in this Hop too and you can win one of the amazing prizes by our generous sponsors. You can find all the information you need at the end of this post.

And now to my project. I had this gorgeous old Iron lying around. It was my grandmas. When she moved to the Elder's home in January this year, my father and I were cleaning her appartment and I took it to alter it once and give it a new life. It was one of the last things I did with my dad. He passed away soon after due to the sudden Aortic Aneurysm. Soon after him my grandma passed away too. It was a hard and devastating year! So this is a special treasure I cherish very deeply. I loved the symbolism of this "Old Treasures" Autumn Hop - giving a new life to something old, so it felt just perfect to alter it. I will be using it as a Paper Weight and it's sitting on my desk now, reminding me every day of two of my dear ones, who passed away too soon.

I hope you'll like it and it will inspire you to give a new life to some old things too.

Tropical Travelogue "Bottle from the Sea"

Hi my dear sweet friends and Graphic 45 friends and fans

I want to share with you today another one of my inspirations for the amazing Graphic 45 with their gorgeous "Tropical Travelogue" Collector's Deluxe Edition collection that was released not long ago. I didn't have the opportunity to work with this collection yet, so I was pretty excited to be able to play with it. I decided to alter a small bottle and make a "Bottle form the Sea" out of it. I even altered a paper with a map from the same collection to make it look like it was hidden in a bottle with a map to a secret treasure, hidden on the secluded Tropical Island. 

I used several chipboards from the collection and I cut out lots of elements from the papers. I love the outcome, hope you'll like it too! :)
