Live in the Moment

It's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight the theme is  Time/Clocks.
You can interpret this as you will -it's up to you as long as you incorporate the theme.

                                              Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

The rest of the design team have some great inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.

My take on the theme is an altered clock deriving from late 50s. 
If you are watchful you can spot the lettering: Made in USSR.
I didn't want to cover it, treating the lettering as something memorial :))


I started  the process by disassembling the clock and adding some decoupage paper to the surface.

 I replaced the plastic cover with some some details I made of the junk found in my treasure box and some die cuts, which I gave a lot of metal paint, waxes and rust effect medium.

I must admit I had a very good time altering the clock, putting together all the details.

Good Friends

There is a new challenge starting today at Try it on Tuesday.
The theme for our fortnightly fun is MY FRIEND (human or animal or imaginary).

                                     Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

If you need any ideas our wonderful team have made projects to inspire you so pop along to the blog to see their makes.
My take on the theme is the mini art journal spread with the image of two schoolgirls jumping over the hurdle.
It reminds me of  happy times me and my life time friend had at school. 

As the spread is 13,5x20 cm I am linking it to art journal journey where the theme is:
Colour in my World and Happy Little Stampers with the theme Collage.

Something to remember

Hi! Today I am sharing with you an altered clipboard I made for my male friend. That explains the presence of a pin-up girl on it:))


I started with covering all with white gesso, then inking, spritzing and splashing all sorts of inks, mists and paint until the colours satisfied me.
Next I added a girl and some shells cut out from a magazine.
I finished my piece off adding stamps I have  recently won from Visible Image, stenciling some circles, colouring and outlining.
Dzięki Ewuniu za podkładkę!

Today I'm sharing with you some altered coasters I made recently.

They didn't impress me at all so I tried to make them a bit nicer...

just by gluing some pieces of coloured paper.
Also made a kind of mosaic by outlining the pieces with white pen.

Next I stamped the images on tissue paper and attached them to my coasters using gel medium.

I finished them off adding more stamping and splashing some inks.
I also gave them a coat of varnish to make them waterproof. 

I am playing along with:

For a Wedding

intaas: dies
I have used leaves, hearts and bows dies.

Be amazed

I am thrilled to have been invited to guest design for Stamps and Stencils.
Thanks bunches Ladies for this wonderful opportunity!
The theme of their current challenge is: Colour, Texture, Shape  and they have a beautiful picture inspiration board for you!


I was inspired by two things from the moodboard: lace and metal parts.

My starting point for this project was an oval passepartout which I filled with some lace.

Next some texture paste was stenciled on the surface.
When it was dry I covered all with white gesso.

I mounted some wire with beads on it, some chipboard elements, flowers and leaves.

Then I started to colour the piece with Gelatos and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

I also rubbed some Metallic Gilding Wax to the background, mounted a small button and a metal frame with a sentiment. 
A playing angel's image completed my work.

To finish off I decided to give more interest to the background by strewing some microbeads and doing some stamping. 
I needed another passepartout on the back and some wire to complete my hanger.

I hope you enjoyed my post and I look forward to hear your comments.
Until my next creative journey

Let it shine!

The  new challenge theme today over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY

                                              Pop this on your blog to find us fast!

We are not giving you any prompts this time and we have all
had fun making our pieces to share with you all.
Remember what you make,  the, style, the medium, materials  etc
that you use is entirely up to yourselves as long as you use the theme.
Please pop over for all the details as the DT are sharing lots of fantastic ideas.

My take on the theme is a tag I made from a masterboard done earlier.
I simply stamped the background and the sun, fussy cut it and mounted on the craft bag as I needed it for a gift.

I have altered an oval passepartout and mounted it on the back of an old photo frame. 
I used assemblage technique to compose a brush, a button, chipboards, some metal parts and wire. 
The background was also made from chipboards, painted black and coloured with Inka Gold metal gloss paints.
It is a gift for a young artist to encourage her to paint more.
