"Discover your Everyday Treasures" Altered House panel

Hello dears. It's finally my turn again on Lindy's gang blog and I'm really excited to share with you today my inspiration. I just received a new package of Lindy's gang goodies and I had to try of some of the new colors in my stash! I had so much fun playing with them!

Already more than a month of the year 2019 is behind us, and for me, it was a time of thinking a lot about the past years and about the important things in my life. And one of the things which I realized I have to work on more is being excited and rejoice in the small everyday things and encounters. To notice them, to let them make me happy, to share them with my loved ones and to treasure them. So my today's inspiration is exactly about that... knocking on the doors and opening the opportunity to discover everyday treasures. I hope it inspires you too!

I used Woodouts House base for my project and a Door Knocker from Mintay paper collection. I used several Lindy's gang sprays to color my project. For the background I used mint shades of Merci Beacoup Mint Flat Fabio spray, and I build the rust effect arround with three different red-brown shades: Cajun Carnelian Red Starburst sprayDark chocolate Truffle MagicalMilk Chocolate Brown Magical

There is also a video tutorial for you on my youtube channel as well as on Lindy's gang youtube channel:

Hope you liked the inspiration that I prepared for you today!

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!
Hugs, Aleksandra

"Life is like a Box of Chocolates..." Altered Box with Finnabair

Hi dear friends. 

It's my turn to inspire you again on Finnabair blog and I'm so happy to be here with you today. 

I've had this project in my mind for some time now and I felt it finally was time to make it happen. I feel it was the perfect way to share with you and show you arround all the new amazing Finnabair products that were released in past weeks.

I've altered one of my Chocolate boxes and I've hidden a real treasure inside. Come and take a look. :) 

"Life is like a Box of Chocolates..." You will taste sweetness, bitterness, happiness and sadness. Embrace them all, as every single "taste" is giving you a different experience and an opportunity to grow. Rise above them all and move fiercely and bravely to the person you want to become and with each experience a step closer to goals you want to achieve.

Dusty Attic February Moodboard inspiration with Aleksandra

Hello dear Dusty Attic friends and fans :)

It's my turn today again to bring you some inspiration for this month's Dusty Attic gorgeous Moodboard. Did you see it allready? 

I love the cold tones against a warm contrast and the outdoor feeling it brings. I decided to make a canvas with a gorgeous photo, featuring the same color combination. I love it! It's such a serene and peaceful photo.

I dressed my canvas actually in a leftover piece of wall tapestry with wood pattern. I added some golden-brown and sunny-yellow touches with sprays. I colored the Nautical frame chipboard piece with Finnabair texture fantasy pastes and adhere them on the canvas, then added a photo in the middle. I used several additional chipboard pieces which I colored with several Lindy's gang sprays and Finnabair rust pastes. For the finishing touch I added few white splatters with diluted acrylic paint.

Here are few closeups of my project: 

I used several Dusty Attic chipboards for my inspiration piece:

I hope you enjoyed my Moodboard inspiration for this month and I'll see you soon with more lovely ideas from my Dusty Attic closet :) 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving some love!
Enjoy your day!
Hugs, Aleksandra

"Family House in Spring"

Hello my dear sweet crafty friends,

I'm on Scrapiniec blog today and instead of sharing my projects with Scrapiniec chipboards from the previous month I decided to prepare some fresh inspiration and spice things up a bit. I hope you'll like it. 

I have to admit I'm kind of anxious for the spring to come, so I decided to decorate Scrapiniec Family House and dress it into a spring mood. I put it on gorgeous Woodouts circle base, so you can see that these Woodouts panels are perfect for numerous occasions and useful variations. You can get yours in their shop.

I used beautiful Nitwit collections digital papers to decorate the house. These gorgeous flowers come from beautiful and gentle spring "Birdsong collection".

I used Finnabair art basics mediums (gesso, texture paste, art stones) to alter a house.
I added colors with few Lindy's gang sprays and some Finnabair art alchemy paints.

"Breathe in the Air" January Mixed Media & Art inspiration

Hello dear friends. I'm on Mixed media & Art blog with you today again to inspire you with my project for gorgeous January Moodboard

I was inspired by all the amazing nature elements on this month's Moodboard photo, by the subtle colors with a splash of dark velvet and by the word "Coolness", so I did try to bring out a bit of "frosty" touch. I made an altered woodslice. I hope you'll like it and you get inspired by it! :)

"Live inspired" layout with Dusty Attic

Hello dear Dusty Attic friends and fans. It's an honour to be with you on the Dusty Attic blog again. For this occasion I decided I want to share with you one of my layouts. I do not make them often, although I do enjoy making them very much, so I think it's maybe time to change that. :) So today I bring you a layout that was inspired by thinking of goals in life and for upcoming year. I think one of the biggest challenges in our lives is to live an inspired life following your goals and dreams, but at the same time finding joy and peace, without stress. So this would be my ultimate goal for the year to come. What are your goals and dreams made of?

Lindy's gang February Color Challenge

Hello my dear crafty friends. Today started a new month and we are here with a new fabulous Lindy's gang Color Challenge for February. This month's color palette is realy stunning, I love the color combination and I just couldn't wait to play with it.

I decided to alter a gorgeous Woodouts flower base and create a layout on it. I dressed a base into fabulous Finnabair Resist canvas and applied Lindy's on top. I was using Mad Hatter Mint, Tea Pot Purple and Azure Sea Asters. You can, of course, choose your own colors inside of this color palette to work with. 

I decorated the photo using several papers, including the gorgeous digital Nitwit collection papers from one of their newest collections "Heartstrings". I added few bits and pieces from Fabrika Decour paper cut-outs and of course the amazing Dusty Attic chipboards to top it off. I've applied two different Lindy's gang embossing powders on chipboards - Weeping Willow Green Gold and Pop Rock Purple.
