It's new year!! Unbelievable how fast time is flying! We hope this year will be much better than the previous one. Generally speaking we hope for the best and we wish you the best!!
Because today is second Sunday of the month we are here with a totally new moodboard. The moodboard and all details of our Art Recipe are available below. We hope you will feel inspired and join our challenge.
We hope you have familiarized already with our new visual moodboards, that consist of:
- 4 products to choose from - they are shown on the right
- colour palette - right next to the products and each colour has their own circle
- and visual inspiration in a form of several beautiful images.
It is easy to remember - things in circles are the core of the challenge (colours and products) and things in squares/rectangles are only a visual inspiration to help you get creative juices flowing.
Just to make sure, you are all well informed, we would like to let you know, that challenges will be going live usually each second Sunday of the month. So please do not be surprised, that Inlinkz is closed the day before. Please keep that in mind planning your entering the challenge :) because we love your projects so much and we do not want to lose any of them!
The rules are very simple. Each challenge consists of colour palette and products. You need to stick to the colour palette and use at least 2 of the products listed in a challenge.
Products to choose from:
The colours: deep brown, dark blue, orange
This month Guest Designer is Lori W
Hello Finnabair friends- I'm so excited to be guest designer for the January Art Recipe!
As soon as I saw the moodboard colours, I knew it would be the perfect excuse to play with the new Finnabair releases. I wanted to do something mechanical and steampunky but it wasn't until I found a piece of plastic packaging and an old computer component that the idea sprang to life.
I started with the new Science Lover tissue paper and used a variety of the texture pastes and stencils to create an interesting background. Then I created a focal point using the plastic packaging and computer fan, and built a composition around this using various mould elements and metal embellishments.
Now it was time to paint. The transparency of the liquid acrylics is great for building depth of colour in layers and the new effect pastes are just wow for sparkle and shine! Some final touches with the waxes and I was done!
