There is a beauty in mixed-media projects - you can use as many or as few supplies, as you wish and the final effect could be outstanding. Just like Olya's newest project - mixed media frame. There is a step-by-step video where you can watch, how Olya created this beautiful frame.

Hello there lovely creative friends!
Today I'd like to share with you my brand new inspiration - a mixed media frame.
Of course I found my inspiration in the new delicious materials from Finnabair and my morning was wonderful. It was these emotions that I wanted to show in my project! My project is light and fresh.I took a wooden frame and covered it with my beloved Heavy Gesso - White and White Crackle Texture Paste.
And you've already seen new amazing colors of pastes. I'm just in love with them! And for my project I chose Texture Fantasy - Junkyard Treasures. I covered the chipboard with two colors and I the effect is wonderful! There's such a beautiful texture! Also, I added the color and texture to the metallic element - Mechanicals - Clocks.
Then I added the colors to my frame with acrylic paints. I used new Art Alchemy - Opal Magic. They mix with water perfectly and leave a very beautiful shade and overflow!
Then I added a bit of texture using interesting stamps from the set Cling Stamps - Dirty Walls and embossing powder.
When my background was ready I began to create a composition. There are chipboard pieces, embellishments made with moulds and flowers from Prima and Mechanicals elements. As you can see, for my decor you do not need many items at all. But they are all beautiful!
When the composition is ready I add a few shadows and shine to the elements. I use Acrylic Paints.
And in the end, of course, I add chic and favorite Art Ingredients. There are Art Stones and Glass Glitter and Glitter set. I use Soft Matte Gel to glue them. It becomes completely clear when it dries and only beautiful topping remains! I would not change a thing.
As you can see, you do not need much for a beautiful project, the main thing is high-quality and best materials and you can always find them from Finnabar!
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!
Be inspired by the new materials because they are simply amazing! 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 beautiful!
With love, Olya.
