Hotel California


I'm delighted to be a guest designer for Mix up that song! Facebook Group today!
 In this challenge group it is all about doing Mixed Media Art... with a Song. Every month there is one song, which is  a great inspiration to create.
This month our theme is Hotel California by The Eagles and my take on this theme is a big collage tag. I was inspired by the words:
And I was thinking to myself
'This could be heaven or this could be Hell'


Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (any time of year) you can find it here.


Pop over to our Facebook Group- our DT will knock your socks off with their stunning projects!

A Cup



It all started with a gift I got for Mother's Day this year.
I didn't like the look of a plastic cup so I decided to upcycle it a bit.
My son told me he has just expected it so he has bought an ugly one.



As I have been a mother over 37 years my cup would be rusty and worn up!



I started with building a composition of metal pieces , than covered all with black gesso.
Next step was adding rust effect by Stamperia.
Than it was time for metallic paint Gold Pearl from 13 Arts and Rose Gold from FolkArt.
I also used Patina Effect paint from Pentart.




I finished off my  piece with some  copper wire and beads.

Imperfection


Today I want to share with you a page from my art journal.
I have used a gelli plate print and simply added some stamps including the girl from Artful Days.
It is meant for art-journal-journey where the theme is: Words to live by.
My words are: Imperfection is beauty.

Celebrate moments!




I took the challenge at simonsaysstamp very literally this time.
The theme of the challenge is ,,Frame it" and I have used an old photo frame to alter.


I have also exploit an empty perfume bottle because of its awesome heart shape. It was mounted using heavy body gel medium.


First I put the layer of heavy gesso into the whole surface, than stenciled the pattern with texture paste.

Lots of colouring media was used here: from acrylic paints, dylusions inks, mists,through Perfect Pearls to beeswax paste.


Tim Holtz's ephemeras and film strip ribbon were used to embellish my piece along with some metal parts, a tiny glass bottle and a resin angel.

Love is All Around!



Hi! Today I want to share with you an altered, round wooden box.
To add some texture I just glued some chipboards to the lid, added some flowers and a resin heart.
Then I primed all with heavy gesso and started colouring with acrylic paints.
Next layer was made with Dylusions ink spray and I finished it off with a touch of Perfect Pearls.

In Bloom



Today I am sharing a mixed media panel in rather not typical colours for me.
I was inspired by a beautiful moodboard at splashymixchallenge blog.

                                                     

It was a bit challenging, but at the end I was quite happy with the result.
A lot of mixed media products were used here from gesso, texture pastes, micro beads, acrylic paints, mists and inks to beeswax pastes.
The metal flowers and leaves, the resin birds, chipboard pieces and recycled beads were used to embellish the panel.

Like a Girl!



Today I am guest designing at Bleeding Art challenge blog.
I am very excited and wanted to thank so much the entire  team for this wonderful opportunity.

                                     Bleeding Art

The theme of the challenge is ,,Add Stenciling''.
In my project I have used stenciling twice.
You can see it underneath:
Recycling is very close to my heart and I love to give  new life to ordinary objects.
This time I decided to alter a cardboard box and a part of perfume bottle☺.







Using stencils for the first time while making prints with gelli plate and acrylic paints.



Covering the whole surface with pulled prints.



Using a stencil again, this time with some texture paste.  




This was the way I made the ,,body".



The stamped head ( from Lynne Perrella) was mounted on a black rosette.




To finish off my project I emphasized the texture with Art Alchemy antique brilliance (Amethyst Magic) and added the badge with the important message.
It is meant for women fighting for their rights!❤
