Stamping tips & tricks (Finnabair Academy vol.3)

Hi everyone ;)
It's Marta here! I am so very happy to share with you my two funky ways of using stamps.
I have also a sneak peak of finished journal using my tricks.

Today's post is part of Finnabair 'Spread Your Wings Academy vol.3'
It's all about STAMPING! You can read more here ;) 

My first tip is TISSUE STAMPING.
You will ask why ?
It's for those who are afraid that the stamped image won't be perfect on the project, or you are not too sure where to stamp it. By having stamped image on the tissue you can try here and there and decide where to place it ;) by glueing it.

My second idea is STAMPING ON WOOD.
Those little wooden pieces are from the backing of most canvases.
I was collecting them for ages! You may remember my recent canvas 'Dream On' in which I am creating whole background from those wooden pieces.
You can add those to every project, journal, cards, canvases - it could make a perfect title.

And here is a sneak peak of my journal page ;) I hope you will find some inspiration today !

Watch the space to see video tutorial with my latest journal ;)

Love, Marta xx

'Free spirit' + VIDEO tutorial for Blue Fern Studios

Hello my friends!
I am so happy to be back to you with my new project and also VIDEO tutorial.
Today's work will present new collection 'Paisley & Vine'.
Those are beautiful papers with lots of flowers, flourishes with red, yellow and brownish colours.

Here is my page called 'Free spirit'

When I saw this stunning collection for the first time, I knew that my page will be full of flowers and cute die cuts. This paper collection is full of stunning designs which could be cut out and turned into lovely page embellishments.

I added few embossed chipboards and title from 'Playing cards' 12x12 paper from 'Paisley & Vine'

I hope you enjoyed this basic, simple project. If you wish to see in steps how I made this page please feel free to watch my video tutorial.
I hope you will find some inspiration and motivation to create some great makes!

Hugs, Marta xx

Remember this forever

Hello my friends,
It is always a great pleasure to be back to you!
This project is for Lindy's Stamp Gang design team!
You know how much I love my sprays and I love journals :)

Today's project is was my experimental make to see how it will turn uot when I mix paints and sprays. My background colours are coming from Dylusions paints and few sprays.

To create my background I used:
Shabby Turbine Teal
Maidenhair Fern Green
Toto's Tornado Black

My favourite part of this make is white embossed text created by using stamp. I used Purely White embossing powder. This is one of my must have products. Great for stamps or covering chipboard pieces, fantastic to create some contrast.

Additionally I add some paper image, few word stickers and butterflies.
This is fun and easy page. I hope you will feel inspired!

You can see the whole process on my video tutorial.
Enjoy !

Hugs, Marta x

'Dream on' mini canvas for Finnabair + VIDEO tutorial

Hello my crafty friends,
I am so happy to be back to you.
I have some mini art today, mini canvas.
Can you believe that I used black gesso for the first time ever? Yes, first time. For long I felt intimidated by black gesso and I don't know why. I am used to white gesso with nearly every project but never black one :)

I felt that it's time to experiment with black gesso. I used my favourite wooden bits. You will find those on the back of your brand new canvas. For some reason I was always collecting them without knowing when and how I am gonna use them.

I concentrated on creating as much texture as I can by using wooden bit, thread and white crakle paste. I coloured my piece using many shades of silks. Finally I add cut out photos and title.

You can see the whole creative process in my video.
I hope you will enjoy it and find some inspiration.
So grab some canvas, paints and enjoy, happy creating!

Love, Marta
