December Ambassadors' Spotlight


Hello friends,

It is almost the end of 2021! But before the old year passes, we are here with you to share beautiful inspirations from our Ambassadors Team: Riikka Kovasin, Kassa Hayselden and Olga Ravenskaya.

The theme for this month is: All that glitters!

“Glitter the Halls” 

When thinking of a theme for December I thought about the Holiday season but also New Year. What would combine the two? Glitter! There’s the sparkling baubles and ornaments at Holiday time, the shiny treats, even glossy holly leaves! And of course new year is about sequins, fireworks and confetti. I wrote the theme in form “All that glitters” as you could then continue it with “…ain’t gold” and go just the opposite – rusty and dusty.

My own take to the theme is somewhat traditional as I made some mixed media ornaments. I used different kinds of glittering and shiny mediums on these. There’s glitter from a glitter set, Glass Glitter, Metallic Flakes and Metallique acrylic paints as well as some shiny pearls. 

The first picture I had in my head was a mercury glass bauble. Instead of going with a cool, silver color scheme, though, I went with richer copper and brass tones. But I imitated the shiny mercury glass with the Metallic Flakes. To keep the ornaments grungy, I added some two phase crackle paint between the priming layer of black gesso and the Metallique colors. I didn’t want to use one phase medium Finnabair has in order to use different colors and a thinner layer. I added more grunginess with wire wrapped around the ornament. 

If you want to see how I made the baubles, I’ve recorded a video for you. With that, I’m wishing you all Happy Holidays and a great start to the New Year 2022!

Hi loVelies x

Awe don’t you just think that the theme ‘All That Glitters’ is perfect for this time of year.  It is for me cos I’m like a Magpie with anything sparkly & glittery, just catching my eye, I can’t help myself…  But teehee I do use more, more, more glitter at this festive time of year- It would be rude not to!  So I thank my lucky stars for Finnabair’s extensive range of swoonworthy shiny, twinkling, glittery products.

Anyways I started with my craft tag & a swish of white gesso.  Keeping the background simple I swiped paper texture paste through my stencil & immediately sprinkled with the various glitters.  A few splatters of ink & a scribble of blue/lilac Gelato’s to messy things up a bit I’d the makings of a ‘Scandi’ style festive tag.  The driftwood Christmas tree was in keeping with this ‘Scandi’ style and the glitters sat perfectly on the wood branches which I’d also pasted a touch of crackle paste on too!  Mica powder & Sparks paints added the pop of colour & the mechanical stars & snowflakes & melange art pebbles were the much needed finishing touches along with a blousy tousled ribbon…

I love how the light catches & bounces off all the various glitters, the tree never seems to be still, twinkling & twinkling & twinkling…

Have a lovely Christmas & here’s to a wonderful New Year xoxoxo

Hi dear friends!

It’s Olga Ravenskaya here today with my new project.

I’m absolutely in love with a beautiful moodboard of Finnabair December Art Recipe. Following it I’ve created Christmas Lantern using Art Recipe ingredients and adding lots of glitter! 

What a wonderful sparkling time we have now in winter and there are lots of Finnabair products to create frosty and icy look: White Modelling Paste and Soft Gloss Gel, Unicorn and Crushed Ice pastes, dry glitter and glass glitter, beads and microbeads. I’ve used almost all of them.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
