Hello lovely people,
I’m back on the blog today with a project I hope you will love with its bright and colourful layers of Finn’s Impasto paints.
I really can’t have enough of them and like so, my Muse is kept happy and creative! 😊

So for today, I have for you an altered wooden key hanger I bought a good while ago and for some reason, it stayed forgotten on a shelf… until now! 😊
I started by covering up my wooden key hanger with a generous layer of Heavy White Gesso.

When it was dry, I took out my beloved Art Alchemy Impasto paints and started to paint the little cute houses, adding some texture to them by using a selection of stencils.
I didn’t paint the roofs, as for them I had another plan 😊
You can see all the products I used in the list below and my creative process in the video I made.
While the houses were drying, I began painting two mixed media papers with Impasto paints and different ink sprays.
To embellish them further, create more layers and to add more interest and depth, I used a selection of stencils and cling rubber stamps.

Now, going back to my houses, I cut and collaged pieces of my handmade pattern papers on the roofs of the houses using 3D Matte Gel.
Using a fine grade sanding paper I sanded all the edges and then inked them up.
Next, I did a bit of background stamping using Finnabair's 'Read To Me' text clear stamp and black Archival ink.
When the ink was completely dry, I added a few circles using White Gesso and the 'Bubbles' stencil.

Then I stamped and cut out the same amount of circles (and roughly the same sizes) and collaged them with 3D Matte Gel.
I continued embellishing my tiny houses by collaging different shapes I cut out from the painted papers, shading around them with a black charcoal pencil and adding a bit of doodling with white and black pens.

As a finishing touch, I added two pieces of fussy cut Ephemera, a cute butterfly, three Mechanicals numbers and two stamped words.
Here is my video where you can watch my creative process and see all the products I used.
Enjoy and have fun!




I hope you enjoyed and got inspired by my new project and you are ready to create some magic of your own. 😊

Have a wonderful day, my friends, xoxo
