See Possibility Everywhere

Hello everyone!

Wish you all a beautiful and creative week. Enjoy a Happy Spring Season!

Today, I’m sharing one more mixed media tag that I created, as part of my experimenting with different materials and techniques.

This time, I was inspired by industrial and building elements. I wanted to imitate an old copper piping net, placed up on a distressed and dirty wall. You will find a list of supplies at the end of this post.

The quote on the tag is from Tim Holtz’s Idea-ology Quote Chips, and I truly feel that there is possibility everywhere, in everyone and everything, to evolve, to become better, to find a purpose, to transform!

In this project, I chose to work with DecoArt Antiquing Creams and Media Misters. 

As you see in the video, I sprayed the misters directly on the antiquing creams, without first sealing them. However, I didn’t end up with a muddy color. Instead, I noticed that all the layers of color were preserved so beautifully and gave me a result I very much liked!

I really hope you like it and if you do, don’t forget to give me thumbs up and subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Stay tuned, because more process videos are coming up!

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time,

Be Brave, Be Who You Want to Be!

Destination Unknown - Mixed Media Tag

Hello everyone!

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different materials and techniques.
It’s been a period of great inspiration for me and I’ve been working on many projects simultaneously.

Mostly, I have focused on exploring textures and how to create them with a variety of mediums.

Today, I would like to share with you a mixed media tag, inspired by Agatha Christie’s novel "Destination Unknown".

The arch on the tag is a gate, through which the traveler reaches new undiscovered worlds, full of mystery and excitement.

Come Away with Me - MM Tag for Daily ART

Hello everyone!

Wish you all a happy March and a beautiful, creative Spring in your minds and hearts!

Today I’m on Daily ART with a mixed media tag. In this project, I combined several techniques and different kinds of Daily ART paints, in order to create an interesting background.

“Come Away with Me” in a hot air balloon, up in the skies, like Phileas Fogg in “Around the World in 80 Days”. Let your minds free and dive into crafty adventures!

Layers of color are placed one on top of the other to give depth and create little details that please the eye.
As you will see in the video, it is possible to also use each one of the steps separately, to create an easy but beautiful background for more simple projects, or for ones that you may want to replicate quickly and many times, like cards or ATC’s.

Love Shrine for Daily ART

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to present you my dt project for Daily ART for Valentine’s Day! 

It’s a project dedicated to Love. Strong, Passionate and Unconditional Love.

Sometime ago, I was watching a video, by my favorite crafter Mark Montano, where he was making a Frida Khalo shrine. So I did some Google search about Mexican shrines and patterns and colors and all that inspired me to create a “Love Shrine”.

Vintage Camera Assemblage for Daily ART

Hello everyone!

Wish you all a Happy, Adventurous, Creative, 
Inspiring, Loving, Prosperous 2018!!!

Today I’m sharing a video tutorial for Daily ART.

My dt pack, contained a cute little jewelry box cut-out. A few days ago, I unpacked it and assembled it. But because I’m not a jewelry girl, I got a different idea about it.

Took out the junk box, where I keep all my finds and started adding bits and pieces on the box, till I made it look like a vintage photo camera! In the end, an art pebble worked just fine for my camera’s lens!
