Mysterious Beauty

Hello on Monday, Dear Readers!
You will absolutely love Marta's new layout - simple elegance is certainly Marta's forte.
She also did a fantastic job creating various effects with my Sparks and presenting different possible uses of these paints. I'm sure you'll feel inspired! Enjoy...

Hello friends!
It's Marta here and I have a brand new project for you today!
I prepared a scrapbooking layout using some cool ephemera.
I was inspired by a picture of this mysterious and beautiful lady from Vintage Collectibles Ephemera pack.
I used some metal and fabric embellishments to add a vintage touch to my layout.
I used the amazing Alterable Fabric Flowers - they are just perfect to alter and add a unique, personalized touch to any piece. You can add any color you want - I used Sparks Acrylic Paints to add some shine and color.
This time my background is very delicate - I stamped some circles patterns with the round stamps from 'Don't Forget To Fly' set, later I added some color - again with the Sparks paints.

I used 3 checkered supplies to create some harmony: a stamp & a stencil & resist canvas too. :) I really like the pattern and I wanted to repeat it here and there. I used Sparks acrylics again, this time to stamp.
The same paints were also perfect to create some delicate splashes. It's amazing how verstile they are!
You can simply paint with them, but also stamp, use like watercolors and spray or splash to create pretty stains.
I love their incredible shine and I love using them as often as I can!
I also love the new Metallique Waxes - the way they look on plain metal embellishments is just gorgeous!
You don't even have to cover them with gesso first, simply add some wax on the metal surface and there you go, a brass element turns gold! Isn't it cool?
I've created a video tutorial for you so you can watch how I prepared my background & how I paint the flowers to add just a delicate hint of color. I hope you will like it!

Vintage pictures like this one always inspire me to create light, airy projects full of layers.

Not by accident my works often contain old, mysterious pictures with people who seem to be "out of this world".

I often feel inspired to add to my projects different hidden meanings and some of my secrets. I like to hide them in between laces, dragonfly's wings, clocks and delicate stamping...

Have a creative week!
