Live Your Dream



Hi there! I am so glad I can join in the challenge at Try it on Tuesday  where the theme is: Family and Friends.
I was inspired by the beautiful makes of my former teamies and decided to frame the picture of my only granddaughter Maya.
Maya has grown up already but it's still one of my favourite photos.

I have used another fish can here and an old cup for a stand - I just love to recycle!

Autumnal Apple


Today I want to share with you an altered glass apple. 




Inspired by lovely pieces I have seen on Paper Artsy blog I decided to use tissue paper and some 3D balls to create extra texture.


The best product to fix it all together was DecoArt Matte Medium.


I have found 3 different sheets of tissue paper in my stash.


First I tried some stamping on them.



Than I tried some painting on the reverse.


That gave me more colours to play with.


The pieces of tissue paper were thorn and glued to the glass. 
The whole thing was covered with  DecoArt Matte Medium on top.


  
To finish my project off  I added some text stamping and I rubbed in some gold and rusty wax.

Indian Summer


Today I'm sharing a piece I made inspired by beautiful Indian Summer we have had in Poland this year.
Unfortunately the weather has changed completely and we are now overwhelmed by strong , cold winds and rain.
Going back  to my piece I used a gesso -transfered face with lots of paint in autumnal colours along with some gold accents.

For a Gentleman



Today I want to share a card I made for my cousin's 50th Birthday.
The background is a gelli plate print with addition of stenciled modelling paste and some stamping.


I finished it off with some hot embossed chipboards and tiny gold stars.

Count your Blessings


Another fish can today! I start to wonder if it is a kind of addiction;))
As always I am sharing a few steps of the process.






I have to admit I was in tears at this point because I completely didn't like the colours I achieved.
So I grabbed my acrylic paints and tried to improve the impression.




I'm still not sure about the result but have decided to link it to 
artplaygroundblog where the theme is : Oh, blessed mistake!
It is about my piece, isn't it?

Matchboxes









It all started with the stamps from Paper Artsy which I won in a blog candy.
I just love them!
Somewhere in a blogland I have also seen great paper dolls made from matchboxes and they inspired me to made this shadow box.
Creative upcycling makes me very happy and I love to use ordinary items surrounding us.
As always you can see some stages of my creative process.
For the paper dolls I used some Gelli Plate prints I made earlier.
Hope you like my shadow box!
