What if... by Marta Lapkowska

Hello Friends!
Let me tell you this - you will absolutely fall in love with Marta's creativity - if you haven't done that already. ;)
Her project today is truly a treat - but no more talking, you have to see it!



Hello my mixed media friends,

It is so good to be back to you !
I know that it's been a while since my last video tutorial :) and some of you were asking me to create a new one, so here it is !

Today's project was inspired by super talented Janka. A couple of months ago she created an altered piece for Mixed Media Place. I loved it so much that it stayed in my head till now.

I decided that I have to use her idea of altering an unwanted food can. ;)
It was challening for me but I enjoyed it a lot.


To create this fantastic texture heaven I used Finnabair brand new Snowflake Paste.
And let me tell you, this is a wonderful medium to achieve rusty and corroded texture for your projects. All you need to do is add some colour !


To colour the sides of the can I used a mix of different Mica Powders from Finnabair. 


Additionally, I used some autumn goodies - wild roses. I dried them a little before painting. :)


As my title I stamped some words from Finnabair's stamp sets.
My main focus is a girl cut out from Ephemera - Vintage Collectibles.

I hope you will enjoy my video. Be sure to share your creations if this project will inspire you to make some art ! I hope to hear from you :)


Hugs, Marta xx

Beautiful work! I find myself holding on to unusual cans and jars just for these types of projects. (Although I rarely ever actually give them a try!)

I have some serious art supply envy watching these videos! So many new techniques to try in everything you share. I especially liked how you spritzed the mica powder with water over the textured areas. I WANT TO DO THAT TOO!
