Snowflakes by Katja Joulak

I like working with contrasts and I wonder if you can have rusty dark, Rust Paste with some Snowflake paste? And yes, for sure I say. Here in my background on my textured background I have some Rust Paste and to get a more winter and Christmas feeling on my project I have added some Snowflake Paste here and there. I have also some metallic embellishments in the shape of snowflakes.

There is a video for you! Hope you have the time to watch.

Xoxo and Merry Christmas to you! Katja

Without fear by Juliya Tirskaya

Hello there, creative friends!
Today I'd like to share with you my new inspiration!

Our winter is going full force, everything around is white, snowy, foggy. And that's why I need bright colors!
Therefore, I began to create a bright interesting background. I decided why not to see how Heavy Body Gel and Tissue look out from a layer of paste and paints?

And then the hands themselves folded the composition. I added purple colour for contrast. And a homemade flower made of wire, light bulbs and foamiran.

You can see how I made and decorated my Canvas in my video tutorial. I hope you enjoy my idea for Tissue + Gel and for homemade flowers!

Hugs, Juliya

Christmas canvas by Kasia Salmanowicz

I love the time of creating Christmas decorations. They may not always be typical. Sometimes you can do something different with a winter accent. I like to decorate my home in a style that I love… in shades of brown with natural elements. So I decided to make a winter-Christmas canvas with delicately shiny accents and metal embellishments.

I secured the canvas with Clear Gesso and then applied gold Icing Paste through a mask with the text. As one of the layers I used white cotton fabric. Further elements are natural elements, HDF decors, string and Art Stones and of course my favorite liquid acrylic paints. The right color adds clarity and highlights details. Finally Paste with glitter – because it’s Christmas!

You can see all stages of work in the movie. I invite you to watch and of course create your own projects with fantastic Finnabair products;))

Have a nice day,
Kasia Salmanowicz
