Snow Angels - Finnabair Art Recipe

Dear friends
The new Finnabair Art Recipe for Prima blog is here to inspire you.
Can you guess the art ingredients? :p

Snowflake Paste + Mica Powders + shimmery Glitter

 Art recip 12 2016

Snowflake Paste is perfect for creating dimension on your projects. 
It has a snowy white, subtly sparkly finish when it dries, and it makes the perfect base for adding Mica Powders and Glitter!

Snowflake paste is the perfect product for me to use in wintery and Christmas projects. In this project, I used it in three different ways: 

1. After covering the tag (recycled Mechanicals package) with Black Gesso, I used the Stars Stencil with the Snowflake Paste and the Silicon 1' Brush. When it was dry, I covered the stars with Black Gesso. I absolutely love the texture it adds to the project!

2. My next step was to glue all the embellishments with 3D Gel. I used the Snowflake Paste again to paint the large chipboard snowflake. Apart from the white shade, it added a beautiful sparkle to the chipboard piece.

3. When I was done painting the background with the Mica Powders (pale Silver, Rust, Frozen Lake and Tangerine), I used the Snowflake paste here and there with a paintbrush to add a real snow effect to my project. As the final touch, I added some glitter from the Ebony & Ivory set to the veil of the vintage girls with the Soft Matte Gel. I also attached a cute tassel I found in the Mechanicals Tassel set with a small Jump Ring.

Hold on Time - art journal page

Hello dear friends!
This is my new journal page I created for Finnabair CT.

I was keeping the canvas sheet of my Denim Journal since I had the journal and I was waiting for the big idea to come - maybe something special or even better - something different that usual...
Even though it has been a really long time since I created something in vintage style, I wasn't going for this style. I had in mind something colorful, as always, but during the process I decided to keep it in natural shades.

I started with cutting and tearing the canvas sheet and when I was done with the destroying procedure  -lol- I used the Sculpture Medium to secure the torn pieces.
 Here is how it looked before I added all the mediums and embellishments.

 When it was dry I used two shades of homemade sprays with Mica Powders, Rust and Purple, and sprayed them all over the page.

Then I cut a sheet of watercolor paper in the same size as the canvas sheet as I needed to cover the whole space under the holes.
I used Modeling paste with the Lace stencil to create texture and stamps with black ink.

To embellish my journal page I used a vintage photo from the Ephemera - Vintage Collectibles, a Mechanical Flower, Copper and Bronze Micro Beads, wire, Art Stones and Mini art stones, Screw Brads, Melange Pebbles, wire and a couple of chipboard pieces. I glued everything with 3D Matte Gel.

To paint my journal I used two shades of Art Alchemy Opal Magic Paints: Rose Gold and Violet Gold.
I also used the Rust Pastes on the metal embellishments to make the project look even more vintage.

Finnaly I used the Black Gesso to paint the chipboard tittle and made some splashes here and there to add a little bit of contrast.

Here is my video with all the process. I hope you will enjoy it :)
