Finnabair New Product Release

Finnabair is always coming up with new products to motivate and inspire us to explore, experiment and create with. There are new, beautiful colours in the art alchemy Acrylic Paint range, Rust Effect Paste, Sculpture Medium and more. See it all HERE at Prima Marketing and HERE on Finnabair blog.
This is a wooden Photo Block ( of my girl ) collaged with Prima Patterned Paper and then extra dimension added with fabric that has been crumpled into folds using the new art Extravagance Sculpture Medium.
Strips of fabric, coated in Clear Sculpture Medium and then pushed into folds and gathers ( no need to get out your sewing machine ) You can fold, bend, scrunch, mould, pleat or sculpt fabric any way you want after coating it with this medium: it will dry and hold its shape perfectly.
Thanks for visiting today. Happy creating.

Mixed Media Place........Coffee

I know not every one is  a coffee fan, but I love it. 
Mixed Media Place Creative Gym has based the challenge this month on coffee.
Check HERE to be inspired.
I've created a tag complete with a coffee stained doily, the no.3.....that's how many cups I limit myself to in a day, and some beautiful Finnabair Mechanicals and Micro Beads.

We'd love to see how coffee inspires (or not ) you, so come and play at Mixed Media Place Creative Gym.

Art Journal Cover......For Finnabair Creative Team

The release of some amazing new art mediums from Finnabair and the purchase of a new art journal has inspired this project.
Beautiful new acrylic paints......art alchemy in Metallique with rich, deep colour and art alchemy in Opal Magic which produces two totally different colours depending on whether it is applied to a dark surface or a light surface.......it really is magic. 
There is a step by step on Finnabair's blog HERE of how I made this cover and some short videos on her new products and how you can use them.

All medium and materials used on this project can be purchased HERE from Mixed Media Place

Thanks for visiting today. Wishing you have a fun and creative week.
