Steampunk Mixed Media Journal Cover Tutorial + Video Tutorial

Hi everyone,

I am back to you with another mixed media piece share.
This make is done for Australian chipboard company Dusty Attic!
I need to admit that creating book covers is one of my most favourite ways of using chipboards.
Today is no different. I have some rusted journal cover tutorial for you.

I used my most favourite Script stencil and modeling paste from Dusty.

Additionally I added frame as my big focal point. Be sure to check frames in the shop as there is a huge choice! 

As my final touches I added some shiny gems from my Etsy store. You can click HERE to check them out!

I love the colours and rust luck of my piece. You will see how many colours and different mediums I used to achieve this effect.
I hope you will enjoy this process video.

Hugs, Marta xx

Tiny Art series for Finnabair

Hi, hello everyone ! 

I am back to you with project made for Finnabair Design Team.
Small forms are my favourite. Why is that? Probably the main reason is that I don't feel overwhelmed by the size of canvas. Sometimes it is easier to create some nice composition when we have less creative space. But... I said sometimes as I do believe that for some it could be actually opposite. Such a tiny space could be very challenging.

I created a set of five small art pieces.
I must say I absolutely love those and I trully enjoyed my creative time.
Those are simple but cool little things.

I started by gathering some recycled items.
My next step was to put them into compositions and glue it together by using gel medium.
Once everything was dry I covered all with black gesso. When gesso was dry I played with many colours of acrylic paints.

I hope you will find those pieces inspirational and that you will try to create some small art on your own.

If you will share some art inspired by my makes please share it with me or
tag me #maremismallart

For more regular projects please follow my Instagram :) HERE

I share many of sneak peeks, everyday life photos and some inspirational photos.

Hugs, Marta xx
