I have a wintery project to share with you today....

It will find place in my kitchen window.

It is time for our December challenge at Mixed Media Mojo and the theme is
Sentiment with a twist to NOT use red or green!
My take on the theme is a small (8,5 cm) hanging. Made of MDF, it was given
a coat of tissue paper and silver embossing.
Next I used my Gelatos to colour the background. I added some stamping on the tissue paper and die cut letters. The coat of gold texture paste was given to them and the tiny stars.
Hope you like it!

Bags and Boxes is the new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesday.
For some inspiration from our team pop over to the blog.
My take on the theme is an altered box I'm going to use as a Christmas gift box.
It' s a very simple make over:
just glued some papers, added some decoration pieces and some splashing of white gesso here and there.
I am also linking my box to:

Today I want to share with you an altered lid from a mason jar with 8 cm diameter. I turned it to a fridge magnet for my sister's kitchen.
I started with priming all with gesso, then covered the lid with texture paste through Tim Holz stencil. I coloured all with Inka Gold paints: apricot and cooper and applied rust effect mixture from Stamperia.
The gypsum angel was also coloured this way.
To finish my fridge magnet I added some coloured and glittered chipboards, die cuts and plastic berries.
I would like to enter my piece to the following challenges:

But there are also better moments when I am walking down my memory lane and thinking of good times in my life.
I can remember my childhood when I was waiting for Christmas Eve to come.
There were also some very old, beautiful tree ornaments which belonged to my Great Grandmother.
I was inspired by them when I altered this craft envelope.
I transferred the images from the napkins onto the tags with gesso.
Stenciled some texture paste, added some stamping, heat embossed some snowflakes. There was also some inking and misting used.
I am going to use the envelope as a package for a book I bought for a Christmas present.
I would like to join the following challenges:

Today I want to share with you my next angel made with brown Powertex textile hardener.I didn't take any pictures during creating as the process is very, very messy.
I used old cotton textil pieces along with bandage and tulle to make the dress and wings. The wood parts are also found at my store room.
After drying the figurine was painted with old gold acrylic paint.
I am linking this to lessology: dress-form

W odwiedziny do przyjaciół postanowiłam zabrać wino i opakować je niebanalnie.
Torebkę z tektury falistej ozdobiłam skrawkami papieru, gazy, koronki, tekturkami i metalowymi elementami. Dodałam też kwiaty i wycinanki.
Całość została pokryta gesso i pokolorowana przy pomocy farb akrylowych, Glimmer Mists oraz tuszy Dylusions.
Praca bierze udział w wyzwaniach:

Today is 5th October and it means a new challenge over at The Mirror Crack'd.
I am the hostess of this challenge and I picked the theme WALL HANGING.
If you don't fancy a wall hanging we have a Tic, Tac, Toe board for you to choose from. If you want to do the wall hanging, it's the centre square, then you do NOT need to do the squares either side of it, unless you fancy challenging yourself even further. Or you could pick any of the lines around the outside and miss out the wall hanging altogether. If you use the Tic, Tac, Toe, please tell us in your post which line you have used.
My take on the theme is an Angel of Autumn made with Powertex Textile Hardener. I made it during fantastic workshops at Galeria Niespodzianki
It is a kind of textile sculpture.
I didn't take any pictures during the process as it was very messy and dirty work. You can read about it here.

My take on the theme is a mixed media card. For the background I have used some acrylic paints along with stencils. I also stamped and gold embossed some leaves. The focal point is a chipboard, painted and embossed, some gold wire and red beads.

The new challenge at Try it on Tuesdays starts today.
This time our theme is Add some METAL.
What you make is entirely up to yourselves as long as you follow our theme.
Show us what you can make for the Add Some Metal challenge this time.
I altered a metal frame by gluing lots of metal parts to it: some old jewellery, buckles, cogs and some letters.
Here you can see the whole piece gessoed. The final step was to give it some colour with Dylusions ink sprays.
The frame was a birthday present for my sister and I was delighted to see she liked it very much.
I am submitting my frame to:
