Keys by Nadya Drozdova

Hello everyone! Here is Nadya again sharing with you my new Layout. I was using paper form Writer`s block and Hazy days collections. I covered Dusty attic chippies with Finnabair Rust effect paste and acrylic paints. Added some tags and word sticker from Hazy days, metal embellishments and accents.

Wish you a lot of inspiration, Nadya

Secret by Ola Khomenok

Hello dears!
Today I would like to share with you this mixed media collage. I always looking for new elements and materials to use in my art works. So this time I decided to use a few pieces of broken glass. When I saw these pieces, they reminded me a pretty long part of my life when I felt just like a broken glass. But all this in the past. I believe that our art not just to create a beautiful stuff, but also to heal our souls. So this collage it’s some kind of therapy :)

Few words about the process:
I started with gluing a pieces of cardstocks to the canvas and covered them with a clear Gesso to protect the paper before painting. Next I applied some texture using White Sand paste, Crackle paste and Light paste through stencils. After drying I colored the background with India inks. The second layer was a 7 Dots Studio tags cluster. I coloured the broken glass with alcohol inks. Next I glued all the elements to the background and added some final touches with word stickers. I’m in love with those stickers, using them you can create a little story in your art work.

Have a nice day!

Find your strength by Sandra Bernard

Hi gang!…here in Canada (and others countries of course), November is one rather grey month, no more leafs in the trees, cold temperatures… We are awaiting the white carpet to cover the landscape. It is in this mood that I created my page with, as main subject, a good comforting cup of coffee.

I used small squares from different collections as well as squares from fabrics for the background. I covered everything with medium gel so that paper doesn’t absorb ink that I added to look like coffee spots.

I then gathered different tags and pieces of papers of the various collections to put under my pictures. Then i have added some flowers, dots, badge, tags and die cuts elements from 7 Dots studio as a final touch.

I hope that you will like my small video, do not bother you to ask your questions and demonstrate your appreciations.

thanks a lot
San xx
