Creative Team and Ambassadors

 Hello friends,

It's this time of the year, when we announce changes in Creative Team. Usually it is difficult time for us, because choices are very difficult and the whole change is bitter-sweet. But this Autumn there are only happy news :)

We welcome in Finnabair Creative Team new, talented soul - Marina Ignatova!! She will start inspiring you since October. In the meantime you can visit and follow her social media to show some love :) 

This is our Creative Team for 2021-2022! Yay!!

There are also two new faces in our Ambassadors Team. Olga Ravenskaya decided to move from Creative Team to Ambassadors Team. And Juliya Tirskaya, who in a past was a member of Creative Team, came back to us as Ambassador.

So this is our Brand Ambassadors Team!

We are very happy to have an opportunity of sharing projects by so many extremely talented artists!!

Have a great day!

„I heard a strange noise" - mixed media canvas by Olga Sępkowska

There is something magical about old photographs. Every time I look at them I imagine the story of these people. I look for secrets in their eyes. I wonder if they are happy or just beautifully dressed for the photo.

Brown, gold and green seemed just right for my design. I guess the cooler weather outside foretelling the coming autumn inspired me to make this choice. A nice solution to creating an interesting background is to use tissue paper. I chose a beautiful mechanical pattern, which I further embellished with a pattern applied through the mask.

The casts painted with gold paint were too bright, so I decided to age them a bit with Liquid Acrylic paints and then with Impasto paints. I really like the effect I achieved. 

All the steps of creating my project can be seen in the video.

Art is the Answer Art Journal Page by Iveta Ziedina

Hello my friends!

Today I bring to you an art journal page that was very much inspired by my friends, and Finnabair herself talking about art journaling. For some reason these past few weeks art journaling has really peaked my interest.

I’ve never really tried it until maybe around 6 months ago, but truly, since I tarted learning more about it and also having a little go every now and then myself, I find that it’s really growing on me.

There’s something very very liberating and freeing about just sitting down with a blank page and feeling that freedom to create whatever you want. Truly experiment. try different techniques, colours, anything you can imagine. Because at the end of the day, it is just that. A piece of paper. If your experiment does not go as planned and you don’t feel like sharing it with the world, you absolutely don’t have to. You haven’t wasted some very special substrate that you so wanted to make pretty, it’s just a piece of paper. And that in itself is freeing.

So I hope this little project will inspire you to pick up a piece of paper, and have some fun. Art means a lot of different things to different people. But art is always the answer.

Lots of love,

Iveta xxx
