"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?

Altered Notebook "Galaxy Dreams" with Lindy's gang

Hi my dear sweet friends. Days in our Family our running short these last few weeks. Kids started school again and with all of their obligations, work arround the home, my custom orders and DT work... boy! I wish I could add few hours to the day. I'm realizing that good planning is becoming more and more important. So I decided I'll make myself another Notebook to write down things. And I thought... well... why not share it with you also.

So today I have for you A magical Notebook I made for my Lindy's gang DT project. I also prepared a video tutorial, so you can make one yourself also! I hope you'll like 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!

"Take flight" altered notebook

Hi dear friends,

I'm here with yet another project today, this time I went a bit darker and altered a notebook. As a DT gift I received tons on amazing goodies yesterday from amazing Kelly who owns 7 kids Your crafting store, mostly Finnabair brand, which I longed for for such a long time. And she made my wish come true. 

So I decided to do a little "Thank you" notebook that I thought she'd like with amazing Finnabair and Graphic 45 goodies. I hope you'll like it too!

"Beauty and Joy of the nature" tags with AB Studio

Hi my dear crafty friends,

I'm here with you with some fresh inspiration for AB Studio by our lovely Aga Baraniak again today. I decided to make two beautiful and flourishing tags with her new Paper elements "Something Blue". I also used the stencil which I thought fitted perfectly - Stencil #93 

I was using lots of Lindy's gang and Finnabair products to go along and also some gorgeous new Scrapiniec chipboards I just received.

Lindy's gang October Challenge

Hi my dear crafty friends. It's the first day of October and that means new, exciting challenge over at Lindy's gang blog. Make sure to stop by to see all the rules and participate to win amazing prizes. 

This month's color palette and Moodboard spoke to me Vintage, so I decided to make a little Vintage trasure. I altered a brush adding and altered spoon. I hope you'll like my inspiration.

"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.
