Just Keep Going

Happy Friday, Everyone!
If you're following my blog, you must know that this time is very exciting for me as I can finally introduce all my latest products and see what my Creative Team comes up with using my new art babies. :)
Today we meet with Marta who created art journal wonders with my line of acrylic paints {available soon!}...


Hi guys,
It's Marta Lapkowska here.
Every month I am super excited to be back to you to share my new project, today is no different.
This month is super fun for the team as we are having a chance to experiment and try out brand new Finnabair products from Prima winter release.
I have to say I was super excited and curious when I saw Finnabair's new Art Alchemy acrylic paints! I knew I would be using them as my first choice.

Today I am back to my true love, back to journaling.


Visual journaling, art journaling... any sort of expression in a book or a journal is by far my most favourite way of creating. It was such a pleasure playing with texture and colour this time.
I made a short photo tutorial for you in which you can see how easy it was to create this page.

To create your background simply add some Modeling Paste through a chosen stencil, stick some lace while wet and colour it after drying. 


All you need is some journal or an old book where you can build your texture. Once this is done, get your hands on the paints and colour your pages.
It takes time with new products to get to know them well and to understand how they work. I must say I am in love with Finn's new acrylic paints, amazing colours, so vibrant and juicy... wonderful to blend in! I am pretty sure that those paints are gonna be in my top 10 used products this year.


I hope that my spread will encourage you to grab your book and do some journaling.
Remember, there is no good or bad in art journaling, no rules and no limits! Just CREATE & Enjoy!

Have fun. Love, Marta xx

Absolutely beautuful page! I wish I knew more about the qualities of Finnabair's new paints. Are they opaque or transparent? Are they shimmering like silks or what? Are they acrylics are they permanent?

Ladies. These are great quality acrylic paints with mica inside which makes them in a way similar to silks but more in the consistence of fresh cream, more liquid than silks. Dark colours of Metallique line will be 100% opaque, lighter colours such as light patina or gold will be a bit more transparent but when building more layers they will cover up even on black :)
Opal Magic paint has no pigment, just shimmering mica and they have pearly, semi- translucent finish on light colours and full iridescent and shiny on dark.
