Waiting for a miracle by Juliya Tirskaya

Hello there, creative friends!
Today I'd like to share with you a new inspiration - a mixed media canvas about waiting for a miracle. Wonderful time of Christmas and New Year! What do you associate with these days? Taste of tangerines, red Santa Claus costume, holly and fun?
My associations are night, stars and frost. Snow sparkles and shines in the light of lanterns. It crunches under feet.
As a child I lived in the village, and our house stood on the edge of the forest. The trees created a sense of fairy tales. Mysterious and beautiful.

And this childish feeling is still with me. I tried to convey it in this canvas.

My recipe for forest magic is Heavy Gesso Black and Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints. A little bit of White Crackle Texture Paste and Wax. A few wonderful metal embellishments. And at the end  Snowflake Paste. It is like magic dust, reviving the canvas. Making it shine and sparkle!

I have prepared a video tutorial for you on how to make this canvas. I hope you enjoy viewing! And I wish you all a wonderful winter! Let your dreams come true!

Listen with your heart by Olya Kravets

Hello there lovely creative friends! Today I'd like to share with you my brand new inspiration - a mixed media canvas with lovely amazing Finnabair's products! Sometimes I want to do something simple but beautiful, just to convey my emotions. And this time I listen to me and created an inspiring board and a reminder. Do you see this interesting and inspiring picture inside? That is what inspired me to create this project. This is a card from the new release of  Art Daily "Words you need"!

The very first step was taking a clipboard. I mixed Mini Art Stones and Black Gesso to create a textural background. It is so simple! Then I took several shades of Impasto Paints and Acrylics and started my magic with colors. I really enjoyed the process and painting. To make my texture even more interesting, I added some Texture Fantasy.

I covered the reverse side of a small canvas with Texture Fantasy Paste. I did the same with  chipboard. I wanted to create uneven relief on it! There are more decor elements such as lace and burlap. And my favorite metal elements - Mechanicals! I also added cards from the set Ephemera Melange.

I decorated my project with new cards and words from Art Daily. This is something that fills your project with meaning! Just try and you will immediately fall in love with it!

I invite you to watch my video tutorial to see the whole process of creating my project. Enjoy! 

I really hope that I was able to inspire you! 
Create simple things but put your heart in them. Then you will be unique. Remember that you are beautiful and everything that you create will be amazing! Play with new products from Finnabair and let your inspiration always be with you.
With love, Olya.
