Hey there,
It’s Marta here :) :) :)
Today I would love to share with you my 3 projects: two tags and art journal page. All three works are created within the same colour scheme. I hope you will enjoy my creations.
First up are my two tags. In both creations I used stencil and stamps to create the backround. Coloured it with Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays. I added papers from 7Dots Studio.

Used products:
Frankenstein Frame  Tennis Racquet  Diagonal stamp  Fish Scales stamp
Triangle Maze stamp  Dot stamp  Hash Stencil

My second project to share is my mixed media art journal page. I just loooove, adore creaing journals. The given freedom of creating is priceless. I hope you have some journal yourself. If not, grab some old book and start creating. Experiment and enjoy !
This project has one of my favourire word chipboard and dot stamp.

Dot stamp  {Excellence.....

I hope you have enjoyed my inspirations. I will see you soon :)

Today's post will be rather short.
I wish to share with you few of my projects from Artworkshop.
It's gonna be mix of cards, journal page and layout.
I have also made a video tutorial for one of the works.

My next creations are cards. Simple and plain but still cute. Both of them has wonderful wording on them and this is my main focus for both cards.

My last share will be my mixed media layout.

Altered wooden tractor for Finnabair Creative Team + VIDEO

Altered wooden tractor for Finnabair Creative Team + VIDEO

Hello there !
Oh, how happy I am today :)
Finally I can share with you my second project for Finnabair Ceative team.
It is quite funky project... different, interesting... and I was so curious to see how you will feel about this creation.
I must say it was challenging for me. It took me couple of days (actually nights) to have it finished.
It was hard to record it too while creating was divided in days.
But... all of that does not matter when I look at my tractor.
I am in total love with this funky piece.
Look at it yourelf ;)

Since long time I was looking for fun object to alter. I saw this tractor in the second hand store and since then I knew it is gonna be turned into my art piece.
I had some sort of vision in my head. I knew it is gonna have wings for sure :)

Here is photo of my 'before' tractor :)

To create this project I used mixed media products from Finnabair which you can purchase in Mixed Media Store here.  You can read more about the products and creating process on Finn's blog.
Here are some close-ups and video tutorial :)

In the video I show how to create a rust effec on the metal pieces.
I hope you will enjoy the video !

Love, Marta xx
