A Splash of Colour- mixed media project by Lori Woods

Hello creative friends! I love making grungy projects but they don't always have to be dark, sometimes a splash of bright colour and some sparkle works perfectly with them too!

I wanted a pale background so I started with a sheet of Butterfly Effects paper. I used two different stencils to create some different textures and detail.

I then created a composition with mould pieces and embellishments which I painted in Mint Impasto to create a base colour. Onto this, I added Metallique and Sparks paints for the colour and rust paste to grunge things up a little. I finished the project off with one of my favourite wax colours, Acid green.

Stargazer canvas by Kasia Salmanowicz


Finnabair surprised us again with wonderful new products - this time they are incredibly atmospheric scrapbooking papers for 7 Dots Studio. What will you find in them? This is a must-see - be sure to visit the Mixed Media Place store and complete your set.

I chose several 'Stargazer' 30x30'' sheets, including cutting elements and great stickers with various texts that will certainly enrich your project. 

I made a mixed media canvas using these papers, which I combined with HDF elements, art stones, metal accessories, lace and paper flowers from Prima Marketing. 

Of course, you will see the entire process of creating this project on the Finnabair YouTube channel. I invite you to watch my video tutorial.
