April Inspiration for Words & Paintery

Mixed Media Layout - "Nature's Wonder"

Hello Friends....

I am here today with my inspiration project for Words & Paintery April Color Palette. Lovely soft shades, really fun to play with. I created a Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout.

I created my background with a stencil pattern using Lindy's spray and distress ink, followed by background stamps which is my favourite always. 
I chose this picture for my Layout as I am entering this project to Scrapki-wyzwaniowo April Challenge - Gardening. It's spring after all :)
I love using flowers in my layouts with some detailing around. Here I have used flowers from Prima Marketing and lots of Art Stones and micro beads by Finnabair/Prima. I embossed some die cut leaves in a lovely shade of green from Lindy's and also slightly distressed the edges. To add to my details, I have used my favourite chipboard pieces from 2Crafty Chipboard. I have distressed the chippies to highlight them more.
Some detailed pictures..

Heavy White Gesso by Finnabair/Prima
Paper from Pion Design
Chipboard pieces from 2Crafty - Moroccan Bits
Flowers from Prima Marketing

"To Dreamland" - Mixed Media

Hi there..

Today I am here with something mystic to share. A Mixed Media project that I created inspired by the Mixed Media & Art March Challenge Moddboard which has a mystic theme. 

I was really inspired by this mystical theme and had lots of greens and browns in my mind for this project. I love nature and it always fascinates me, especially the woods. I love fairy tales too and magical, mystical elements are always very appealing to me.
I started with a small canvas board and in the background I applied a thick layer of Plaster Paste by Finnabair, After that I adhered some random chipboard negatives for an enhanced texture. On top of it I applied some texture paste crackle by Finnabair and lots of Art stones as I wanted it more grainy. 

Then I covered everything with black gesso and moved ahead with dry brushing Finnabair's "Golden Moss" metallic paint. I also sprayed some distress spray stain in "walnut stain" for some brown highlights. Then I started with my collage elements. I had a wood panel that I chose as a focal point and used lots of cheese cloth and sisal beneath it. Arranging all other elements around it. I was fascinated by the Trilogy in the moodboard so created a small book with number 3 on it. I wanted to put a magical picture in the center and for that I chose Finnabair metal embellishment to accommodate the picture. I used 3d gel by Finnabair to adhere the elements.
Once I was done with the elements, I added some more color until I was satisfied and added lots of art stones here and there. I also added some small pebbles.
I distressed the edges of my canvas and applied some highlights of Finnabair's wax in "Bronze Age".
That's all.
Some more detailed pictures..

April Challenge Inspiration for MMW

"Spring Layout"

Hi there..

Hope you all are doing very well. With the arrival of spring, I am totally obsessed with flowers and greenery these days. Today we have a new challenge at Mixed Media Warriors blog with a beautiful moodboard. And I have created a spring layout for this moodboard.

So for this layout, I used Monochrome paper from Maja Design. I started with a layer of white gesso and a stencil pattern. Then I applied the gorgeous "golden moss" metallique arylic paint by Finnabair/Prima and a few splashes of Lindy's spray in bright pink shade, followed by background stamping. 
I then arranged  the photo with some scrap papers and gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
I wanted my layout to be more composed. I then added lots of art stones and micro beads. These tiny bits never fail to beautify any project. Finally I added some green splashes and highlights of gesso. A couple of quotes to finish off.
Some detailed pictures..


List of Supplies used:

Monochrome Paper from Maja Design
Heavy white gesso by Finnabair/Prima
Metallique Acrylic Paint "Golden Moss" by Finnabair/Prima

March inspiration continues with 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Card (with insert box)

Hello there..

Back today with my second share of this month for 2Crafty Chipboard.. a card in mixed media shabby chic style, and this card
comes with a box. I am now addicted to create these boxes as well :)

For this, I again have used various mixed media supplies and
 papers along with my favorite chippies from 2Crafty.
Some more pictures..

 I have created layers with lace, cheese cloth, die cuts, papers and chippies.
Creating layers is always so much fun.
Here I have embossed all my chipboard pieces in pure white as it matches very
 well with the soft tones and shabby chic look. The doily and the ornamental
 design of chippies coordinated quite well with the theme. 

2Crafty Chippies used:
Element Set 1
Fine Word set 1
Flower Doillies

Other supplies used:

Papers from my stash 
Finnabair Modelling paste
stencil from Tim Holts
sprays from Lindy's 
Ranger Distress ink "vintage photo"
Flowers from Prima Marketing

Hope you enjoyed the post and got inspired :)
