Queen of the Night by Anastasia Korvyakova

Hi creative Friends! Anastasia is here. 

Amazing mould with femail faces inspired me altered brush. I decided to create Queen of the Night art doll. I think it is first from series of dolls that I’m going to make.

According to my idea I chose purple blue colours in different materials. To create composition, I used plastic elements from different moulds – Nocturnal Elements, Wings and Bones, Vintage Portraits, Grungy Frames.

I wanted to make the top lighter than the bottom, so I used for background Black and White Gesso. Then I colored up elements with Blue Mica powder, Royal Azul and opal Blue-Green acrylic paints, added various waxes at the end.

I imagined the queen is surrounded by stars and realize this idea with wire. I just added pieces of wire to the moulds while the plastic was still soft.

All details you’ll find in the video tutorial

xoxo, Anastasia

Shabby Mixed Media Art Journal Cover by Katja


Time to share one thing what I enjoy the most, and it is decorate Art Journals or book covers. I really enjoy that. But you can do the same tecniques on canvases, altered art or even cardmaking.

Here on my cover I have texture paste, the white crackle paste to add beautiful crackles. That makes gives a great effect with the Liquid Acrylics Paints. I have a new favorite of the waxes and that is the white Pearl wax. The wax makes a lovely shabby effect on the top of my moulds.

Check out my video tutorial:

Hope to see you soon again.

Xoxo Katja

Skull lamp by Kasia Salmanowicz


today I would like to show you my new project in which I used many different moulds from Finnabair. I know I will repeat myself, but there are so many new patterns that you still have to create to use them all! By the way, do you already have your favorite moulds?

The whole project is based on a lamp-shaped HDF base. I glued the individual elements from moulds, small gears and dry sticks together with Heavy Body Gel, and after drying everything, I covered it with a thin layer of Clear Gesso.

This time I chose a set of three rustic pastes that have great, intense colors and additionally leave a wonderful texture. The project seems to be rusty twice;) To slightly diversify the colors, I also used liquid acrylic paints (Ink Black, Carmine and Tiger  Orange. Finally, I used white gesso for highlighting and silver metallic wax. 

I invite you to watch my video tutorial on Finnabair YouTube channel where you can see the entire creation process.

Have a nice day,

Kasia Salmanowicz
