Delicate

 Today I will show you my latest art journal spread.
I was inspired by three challenges.



Below I will describe the process.
 Firstly, I applied white gesso and then modelling paste.
Before the paste is dried I stamped on it with a piece of lace and a doily.
 

The doily was made from stencil paste and a silicone mold.
 

 I coloured the pages with watercolours.
I stamped with bubble wrap,with the doily and distress ink.


 I stuck on the page cheesecloth and a piece of  lace.
I stamped with some branch dies and distress stencil stain.


 I placed a romantic photo, framed with scrapbooking papers and a lace. 
Then I used the dies and the doily on the composition.


 I made a stamp with modelling clay and silicone mold.
I used it to stamp all around the pages.


 I made a butterfly with modelling clay.
I wrote the word "delicate" into a dies frame.


 I also used strass, small metal elements, 3d powder coarse, a pen and a watercolour pencil.




I would like to enter with this into three challenges:

The breath of nature


This is my project for the third stage 
of Mixed Media & Art's challenge" Creative Art".
"The breath of nature".
"We suggest you create any work in the style of a mix-media using ONE non-scrap 
material from nature and also one more obligatory element of this stage - LETTERS in any form." 
 You can find more details here.


 I created a mixed media project on a tree trunk slice.


I made a heart with polvere ceramica and a plastic mold
and a decorative element with gesso and a silicone mold.
I placed them all on the packaging board of agave fibers 
and I also put some agave fibers under the heart..


 I used a dictionary page and I circulated the greek word "δενδρον" which means tree.


 I used dry fruits and leaves from a tree of my yard.
 

I placed a piece of cheesecloth  at the bottom of the composition
and I stuck on it a metal peacock.


 I also used thread, cord, cardboard (the small leaves),
  

 lace, heavy body paste with a stencil


  bronze wire, bronze beads and 3d powder coarse.


I coloured everything with Artex powder pigments.


At the end I made white splashes.




 I hope you like it.

A wanderlust lesson with Marta

Last year, I started art journaling and I discovered Marta Lapkowska
and her amazing videos on YouTube (Maremi SmallArt).
Yesterday, it was her turn to teach at Wanderlust 2017
and I had the opportunity to watch  the two fabulous projects she made.
As I was watching the videos, at the same time I was creating my projects
and I want to share them with you.

 The first one is an art journal spread.


some close ups...



The second project, I decided to create it on a canvas.


 Marta used a tree bark as a base of her project.
I had pieces of tree bark and I separated it into pieces 
and stuck it with modelling paste on a canvas
and I used this as a base for my project.
 

some close ups...






 At the end, I found out that I had two focal points at my project
and it would be better if it was one.
I will be more careful next time.

Anyway, the fact is that I really enjoyed all the process.
You must watch her videos!
Thank you Marta.

Dreams

Hello! Today I will show you my project for the second stage 
of Mixed Media & Art's challenge" Creative Art".
"Crystal Beauty"
 "It is dedicated to transparent elements! 
 In your work there should be ONE transparent element NOT from scrapbooking 
and one more obligatory element of this stage is CIRCLES."
You can find more details here.


I created a mixed media project on an mdf board.
The transparent element I used is an inject printable transparency film.
I cut 3 cycles which I placed on three of the five rolls. 
On the other two I placed two transparent cabochons.


 For the background I used stencils with heavy body paste.
I painted it with black acrylic paint and then with Artex powder pigments.


 The five cylinders are made of toilet roll, kitchen roll and plotter's paper roll.
The heart is made of polvere ceramica.
 I used stencil paste with a silicone mold, a metal key and a metal note.


I used air dry clay or artista modelling clay and silicone molds
to make butterflies, a heart lock, feathers and stars.


 I also used cheesecloth, strass, thread, 7 dots paper (the leaves),  3d balls and 3d powder coarse.


At the end, I applied Goldpasta.
