Magic by Anastasia Kuznetsova

 Hello, friends!

Anastasi is with you today. Today I have prepared for you a new layout "Magic".

At the very beginning, I covered a sheet of scrapbooking paper with a Clear Gesso. Then I applied the Paper Texture Paste through the stencils by Finnabair.

Next, I put together a layered composition. For decoration, I used clay figures, which I covered with Black Heavy Gesso. Then I sprayed them with pearl spray and applied Waxes to the raised parts.

I applied sprays around the composition, and after drying I made impressions with stamps. I sprayed it with White Heavy Gesso, which I diluted a little with water.

At the very end, I added small accents in the form of sequins, beads and glitter. I pasted the accents with Soft Gloss Gel.

You can watch the creation process in this video. Enjoy, Anastasi.

Winged frame by Anastasia Korvyakova

Hello mixed media fans! Anastasia here. I've altered Metal Alarm Clock by Finnabair for my friends' wedding anniversary.

This alteration turned out with a small secret place, because I decided to make a chipboard door. I don't know what my friends can keep in this place... maybe some small love notes?

I've decorated sides of clock with Paper Texture Paste through stencil Vintage Wallpaper. Then I did this pattern darker with liquid acrylic paint Burnt Sienna. This is my favorite color!

Actually, for whole project I used three colors only - Burnt Sienna, White and Green (Dragonfly acrylic paint from metallique serie and Avocado Green liquid acrylic), for elements outside and for background inside. I adore this color combination!

Inside clock I've collected composition from paper elements by Prima. For composition with photo outside I used various metal embellishments which I've covered with Black Gesso and then I added on them a little bit of white acrylic and gold embossing powder.

You can find  more details in video tutorial

Hugs, Anastasia Korvyakova (aka nastyalena)

Mixed Media Music Box by Katja Joulak

 Hello dears!

Boxes are fun to alter. Here I have a music box that I have give a new look.  I gave the box some texture, embellishments and also paints. Layers of Liquid Acrylic Paint and also some sparks that give my project some extra shimmer. I have also decorated inside the box with paper paste and pebbles. 

There is a video tutorial for you. Enjoy!

Xoxo Katja
