A place in my heart by Olga Sępkowska

 I brought back a bit of autumn to my studio. Metallic flowers, fern leaves and browns and golds. Also, a touch of grey, because that's what the weather has been like for the past few days. The perfect moment to bring back happy moments and people who hold a place in your heart. 

I sealed the wooden shutters with white gesso. This is important because wood does not like excess water. Once the gesso was dry, I applied the pattern through the mask using modelling paste. Which is also sticky, so I didn't need to use any extra glue to attach the other part of the shutter.

When I finish a project and feel that something is still missing, Unicorn's hair dye often comes to my rescue. The colour may be inconspicuous, but it gives a beautiful shine and is perfect for finishing a project. I love combining it with rust. 

You can see the steps in the process of creating my project in the video. Have fun!

Altered Ceramic Bird Cage by Iveta

Hello all,

Today I have another project that I created without any kind of special message behind it, more just because I wanted to!'

Today’s project is a set of mixed media tags that I think will be perfect for this year's gift-giving season!

Because not everything has to be Christmassy to be given at Christmas right?

I tried to use a few of my favourite supplies (metallic flakes and white crackle paste) that I absolutely LOooooove but for whatever reason, I haven’t used them in a while, so it was a very enjoyable project to create!

Lots of love,

Iveta xxx
