2 layouts + 1 Video tutorial for Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone,

It's Marta here! Are you rady for some inspirations ?
I have made two layouts for today's post. Two different styles but two equally interesting projects.

First page is totally mixed media based layout.

I used brand new paper collection 'Autumn Anthology'. For some interest I added some white string across the page.

I have added some modelling paste through the stencil. Everythig was coloured with sprays.

As my final touch I added chipborad 'Clip Frames'.
You can follow the whole creative process on the video tutorial.
I hope you will enjoy it:

My second make is plain and clean.
As you can see this layout is flat and easy to store. Even tho I am a mixed media girl I like to make sometimes easy pages which could be challening for me. No art mediums ? Oh yes, just stunning papers and few wonderful chipboards!

I must say I love the papers from 'Frolic' collection. Bright, very colourful and beautiful!

I embossed all the chipboards with yellow embossing powder.

I love fussy-cutting :)

I wish you a very creative day !
Love, Marta xx

Simple techniques = quick and easy to make tag

Hello everyone!
I am back! ! It's always such a pleasure to be back to you!
Today I would love to show and prove you that some projects which look complicated are easy and fast in fact.
I will walk you through the steps and explain all.

We start by gaining all the materials. Those are the basic and random choices.
You are more than welcome to choose your own colour scheme and few embellishments.

I started by building some texture on my background. I used some modeling paste and masking tape.
I used some embossing powders to alter my chipboard.
My next step was to colour my tag. Lastly all I did was created a composition from few of my picked embellishments.

I hope I showed you that very effective looking projects are easy, fast and most importantly fun to do.
Remember always to pick your COLOUR scheme. Your next step is to choose some embellishments. Be sure to either colour them as your background or find elements that are already matching your colour mood board.

I hope I inspired you to create some tags!
Neon Graffiti Mega set will become one of my favourite sets of all !

Love, Marta xx

Mini canvas for Finnabair Creative Team

Hi my friends!I am delighted to be back to share with you my last make for Finnabair team.
There was a Creative Team call for Finn team... so soon we will know the new team ! Exciting !
I am so honoured for a chance given to be part of this journey... I could not be more grateful for being among so many talented ladies from the team. This was my most creative time of all.
Also I wish to THANK YOU so much for your support, for all your kind words which were lifting me up every time I shared my art. I enjoyed making my video tutorials for YOU and showing you my love for mixed media.
Today's piece is very special to me. I love creating mini canvases. Small surface could be challenging but very rewarding. I have also prepared some picture tutorial for you.

I started my make by covering canvas with 3D matte gel. I added some resist canvases.

My next step was to add all different embellishments - metal and wooden pieces mainly.

Lastly! Time for colour. Firstly I used mix of white and black gesso.
My final colours were added with Mica powders. (Mica powders + soft gel medium = custom made colour paint)

I hope you have enjoyed this short tutorial. And here are few more pictures with some close ups.

Sending you many creative hugs, Marta xx
