Inspiration from our Guest Designer - Shannon Helwig
As soon as Finnabair’s Tall Rusty Birdhouse came out, I knew I couldn’t wait to alter it! While the finish on it is beautiful as is, I wanted to make it a bit softer. As inspiration, I pictured an old birdhouse in a beautiful garden that some mischievous fairies took over!
This month’s Art Recipe has beautiful colors that fit my vision perfectly. I used modeling paste through a stencil and Impasto paints to color my project. I also used the Stars and Moons moulds and some mica powder to add shimmer to some embellishments.
Thank you so much for allowing me to be this month’s Guest Designer! It was a true honor!
Inspiration from our team:
This month’s colour combo [green, blue, brown] is my absolute favourite and with these complementary hues, I have created an art journal page for you!
“A blank canvas...has unlimited possibilities.”
― Stephanie Perkins.
We can all agree that when it comes to art journaling, we loathe the blank page, yes? Starting an art journal page can be very daunting but with these bible steps I guarantee you a fabulous outcome, no matter whatever theme I choose.
*Random stamping and using Modelling paste with stencil to create some abstractness, layered with some stitched laces, mould embellishments, findings.
*Blend everything together with impasto paints, liquid acrylics, rust pastes and shimmery mica powders! So, here you go, fabulous page created with less fuss in less time!
For this month Art Recipe, I made this photo frame. The climate of the photo dictated to me the nature of the whole project. So it is vintage with a lot of media.
I used a lot of stars from the latest Finnabair molds. The castings were made of resin, glued and painted together with the whole. Thanks to that, the stars perfectly merged into the entire project and matched.
To add color I used mica powders, Impasto paints and waxes. The whole is beautifully shimmering and shines. To enrich the project I also added a bit of micro beads, and at the end I splashed with white paint.
I am encourage you to take part in our challenge. Go ahead, inspire yourself, create and enjoy!
Hello dear friends! I am so inspired by new Art Recipe! I created a picture with volume and texture. I take inspiration from nature and here is a bit of it. The sea and its open spaces that go into the land. So with this month's gorgeous Art Recipe ingredients and colors, I felt they were perfect to make it happen. But maybe you will see your meaning.
Have a lot of inspiration and find your inner happiness.
I made a textural canvas with new incredible Art Alchemy Paints - Sparks Green Goblin and Night Shadow.
I hope you liked our fabulous recipe, and you will also try to do something new and interesting for yourself!
