Wooden box by Marta Piekarczyk

I love to create small, mixed-media boxes with lid. They are very practical and you can put inside your little treasures. 

I covered wooden box with metallic paints - ArtAlchemy - and I have added a few metallic embellishments and sticks. To add some texture, I have used micro beads and gauze. 

A cherry on top was a beautiful, metallic flower from Prima Marketing and I have accented the details with white gesso.

* * * * * * * * 

Hiya folks - DeeDee Catron here today :) I am a mixed media artist, instructor and designer. I am the Owner/Creative Director of UmWowStudio, the Marketing & Artistic Director for Viva Las VegaStamps! & a Product Designer for 7 Dots Studio. I am so humbled and honored to not only bring my designs to the arts & crafts industry but to also get the opportunity to work with and for other artists & designers like Finnabair.

I'm so glad to be here sharing! I have partnered up some of my favorite Finnabair products with a few staples like 7 Dots Studio papers, UmWowStudio chipboard, VLVS! rubber and more. I hope you enjoy video tutorials and don't hesitate to ask any questions. I'm always around to answer. 

For this tag I HAD to use Finnabair's rusty barn stars... they are so divine, so heavy, and have so much OOMPH behind them. I chose to use the barn stars as the focus of my project and worked around them with everything else. Add a little glass glitter & some fibers.. and I am one HAPPY girl. ♥♥♥

Sparkle by Tanya Palamarchuk

Hello everyone!
It is Tanya here.

I made bright and shimmering LO with lovely 7Dots Studio papers!
Verano Azul Collection is very inspirational!!!

Some close-ups:

I have made a few photos of process - especially for you!

At first I chose the paper and stencil from 7 Dots Studio.

And I have applied some modelling paste.

Than - a little bit of golden shimmering from Primary Elements...

... that I activated with water.

I chose one of the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and one jar of silks - acrylic paint.

And I added some splashes.

Black background stamping is a kind of "must have" for all my projects!

Some embellishments as a final touch and my LO done!
