From the heart by Riddhi

Hi beautiful people,  

I hope you all are doing well. I'm sharing new project with all of you for the month of May. 
Here I've made altered hoop with lots of  amazing Finnabair supplies. 
My life is incomplete without art, as well as art without Finnabair supplies.

My mind always tells my heart... "Go and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make. Good. Art."

If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing. I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality. And so here is my new project with using different textures . I hope you like it.

Starry Night on a round wooden base by Katja

I have a wooden tribet that I have been working on like a canvas. I got inspiration from one of my own tags. Yes, sometimes you can find inspiration from something you have made before. I love the process and with this work I think it is important that you doesn't compare yourself with others. You are your own star in your process.

Here is my wooden ”canvas” made with mechanicals, moulds and for the extra metallic shine some waxes.

And here is a process video for you.

Xoxo Katja

Inspiration from our team:

Hello guys,
This is Riddhi and here is my project for this amazing Art Recipe. Isn't it gorgeous? Rust effect pastes are one of my favorite product, and Texture fantasy is magical one. This time I've created Canvas collage filled with Finnabair products <3

As always my project is connected with my heart and deep thought. So I'm sharing it with all of you.

“Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don’t rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you’re doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out with Perry?

You’re cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you’re stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today you wasted is gone forever. It’s now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you , but now you’ll never know.” 
― Jerry Spinelli, Love, Stargirl 

I hope you all like my projects <3
Thanks in advance <3

From the first time I laid my eyes on this gorgeous mdf Moth I knew I had to do something "Finnabair" with it. And with the new silicone mould "Flower Queen"  the idea was slowly coming together. So with this month's gorgeous Art Recipe ingredients and colors, I felt they were perfect to make it happen.

Do you like moths? We don't often associate them with positive things, unlike their beautiful cousins butterflies. But they are remarkable creatures. They are always drawn to the light and they are masters of a disguise. They use their environment to their advantage, blend in when necessary, adjust and adapt when situation requires it. If they don't find the light in the moon, they go towards the man-made light sources. But they always find a light. Maybe that is something we can be inspired by today?

Enjoy your day and find your own light!

Hugs, Aleksandra

Hello dears! We have a new art recipe and I'm happy to show my vintage photo frame. Only it's not that simple! Photo in small jars! You see? They are among the threads of time. The frame is covered in black gesso and is marched with my favorite impasto paint. And the Golden glow is wax ! It turned out very nice and vintage.

I do love the combination of yellow and violet. And golden is absolutely perfect addition to these two. I rarely create cards - usually I create layouts or off-the-page projects, but this time I felt an urge, to create a card. So here it is - the card filled with Finnabair products (all links are below) and 7 Dots Studio fabulous Garden Party collection. The card with an important message...
