Frosty mornings and really cold nights are the perfect reason for choosing silver, blue and lavender as our colour palette this month. There are so many opportunities in winter to use such colours! Whether you want to create a layout with winter scene photo or home-decor, this colour choice will be always a perfect match.

Hi Creative Friends, Phyllis here to share my Guest Designer Project for Finnabair's Art Recipe in December! I was over the moon excited and honored to be the Guest Designer!
I LOVE to create with Blue, Lavender and Silver in my creative mind I was seeing Fairy theme! I started with a blank canvas and a wooden frame, glued them together and covered it with Black Gesso. Then added Art Alchemy Opal Magic Turquoise Satin Wax and Heather Hills Cire Cera Wax. I used the Stars and Moon Mould and painted the Stars and moon with Art Alchemy Blue Violet Opal Magic Acrylic Paints and also gave the moulded shapes a spray of Color bloom spray. Once the Moon mould was half dry I sprinkled Silver Glitter. I went to my front yard and searched for perfect twig pieces and painted on the Snowflake Paste and then sprinkled more Silver Glitter, it was exactly what I hoped for! I also added Old Silver Icing Paste to the back of Melange Art Pebbles for more impact.
I added layers of embellishments and to finish it off I added beads, microbeads and sequins, this was so fun to create using lots of Finnabair products!
Thank you again I truly feel so Blessed and Honored to be creating along with Finnabair's Amazing Design Team! I hope I've inspired you to get your Finnabair products out and start creating!
Inspiration from our Design Team:
I covered the background of cards with Black Gesso and added textures with Modeling Paste and Stencil. When everything was dry I put together a composition, I added color with Opal Magic Paint and Impasto. And I finished everything with a Wax and Snowflake Paste.
I hope you are inspired by this month palette and we look forward to see your projects!
And below you will find my video tutorial, I have created for you:
Perfect match to use Opal Magic Paint, Snowflake Paste and glitter in the same project. It gives a winter and crispy look.
Hello creative friends! The gorgeous new Art Recipe inspired me to alter this HDF Bell, in a winter - snowy atmosphere. For the Background I’ve spread Plaster Paste through the fabulous Ornate Lace Stencil. When everything dried I covered it with Black Gesso. Next I added Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint – Teal-Blue, Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint – Yellow-Blue and rubbed over a bit of Metallique Wax – Electric Violet
Then it was time to color my Embellishments. I’ve colored them with Art Alchemy Metalique paint – Silver Spoon, the mould prints made of Resin and Annabelle and Moon&Stars moulds. And the chipboards pieces with Art Alchemy Metalique paint – French Lavender, Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint – Teal-Blue and Art Alchemy Impasto paint – Bottle Green.
After assembling everything I added Silver Glitter as well as Microbeads.
