'The journey...' Mini canvas by Marta Lapkowska

Hello everyone,

As you all know recently I had a Creative Team Call... so this will be our last month sharing projects from all of my talented ladies from the team... after that I hope to introduce the final Team.
First stop is Marta.
Is there a better way to start your weekend than with some mixed media inspiration!?
We all know and love Marta's passion for colour and texture. This time is no different.
Despite small size of her make she was able to fit much love into her piece!
Check this out.



Hi my friends!
I am delighted to be back to share with you my last make for Finnabair team.
I am so honoured for a chance given to be part of this journey... I could not be more grateful for being among so many talented ladies from the team. This was my most creative time of all.
Also I wish to THANK YOU so much for your support, for all your kind words which were lifting me up every time I shared my art. I enjoyed making my video tutorials for YOU and showing you my love for mixed media.
Today's piece is very special to me. I love creating mini canvases. Small surface could be challenging but very rewarding. I have also prepared some picture tutorial for you.


I started my make by covering canvas with 3D matte gel. I added some resist canvases.


My next step was to add all different embellishments - metal and wooden pieces mainly.


Lastly! Time for colour. Firstly I used mix of white and black gesso.
My final colours were added with Mica powders. (Mica powders + soft gel medium = custom made colour paint)


I hope you have enjoyed this short tutorial. And here are few more pictures with some close ups.




Sending you many creative hugs, Marta xx
