My journal pages - my love

My journal pages - my love

Do you make journals ?
Do you love experiment ?
This is why I started my journals. I wanted to create and experiments. I was trying new products, checking some new ideas and creative inspirations.
Journaling is amazing way of showing your feelings and emotions.
Here are some pages from last week :)
As you can see I used some wonderful Finnabair new mixed media products. I must admit they are must have on your list. Heavy white gesso that helps you to build the page. Soft matte gel which is wonderful for all transfer ideas, decoupage and gluing collage pieces. Modelling paste with softer semi-transparent opaque colour - loooove it.

Hope you enjoyed my works.
Have a great day !
Lastly :) Recently I discovered something super exciting called Wanderlust!

My desk and my art journal pages

My desk and my art journal pages

Today is gonna be pictionary post :) with my art journal pages.
Do you create journals ?
It's one of those ways of free creating where you can experiment, try out new techniques and enjoy.
I love to sit down at my desk in the late evening or early morning where it's quiet in the house and I can just make some spread in my book. Here are few of my latest creations.
If you never did any journal, try !

Hope you enjoyed my works.
Have a great day !

Be awesome and smile ! 3 ScrapFX projects

Hello my friends,

I hope you are all keeping well. What did you create recently ?
Have you got creative mojo ? How do you inspire yourself ?
I wish to hear back from you :)

Today I would love to share with you my three creations for ScrapFX company.
I created two cards and an art journal spread.
In all three works I used Ice Shards stencil but in 3 different ways using different art mediums. More details here on the ScrapFX blog :)
Enjoy !

Stunning brown papers are from 7Dots Studio - collection Nature Walk.

In my second card you can see some Prima packaging - yes this turquoise piece is from packaging, can you believe it ? You can find craft materials everywhere !

My third creation is my art journal page. In this project once again I used fantastic Ice Shards stencil. If you will look closer you will see that design created with stencil is not even. I didn’t use only white modeling paste but also 3D transparent gel medium from Artbasics from Finnabair.
Gel medium and paste reacted differently for sprays from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. While mediums were still wet i sprinkled it with glitter from artExtravagance by Finnabair – the blue shading was created with glitter.

I hope you have enjoyed this quick post and I wish you creative, happy day !
Love, Marta x

Creative Blog Tour / Kreatywna wycieczka blogowa

Creative Blog Tour
Kreatywna wycieczka blogowa

Hello there :)
Today it's gonna be something different.

I will share with you few informations about my creative work and I will recommend you another creative soul that I admire :)

 I was invited to take part in this 'game' by wonderful shabby chick friend Aneta, please feel free to visit her blog and take a look at her beautiful work !

Dzis bedzie nieco inaczej.
Poczytacie dzis troszke o mnie oraz o mojej pasji. Do zabawy zaprosila mnie Aneta, badzo kreatywna duszyczka, zapraszam na jej bloga ! Tworzy tak pieknie !
Na sam koniec polece Wam kreatywna dusze, ktora warto poznac :) 

 Here we go ! / Zaczynamy !

Nad czym obecnie pracuję? 
What am I working on? 

I am in the process of making many things at the same time :) right now I am finishing my next project for Finnabair Creative Team :) and at the same time I just finished my journal page for Lindy's Stamp Gang :) - page that is funny and cute, here is the sneak peak :)

Czym moja praca różni się od innych w tej branży? 
How does my work differ from others of its genre? 

I have no idea ! It's very hard question. I never look at myself in comparison to others. My creating is for myself and what came after that was a bonus. 
Nie mam pojecia. To jest bardzo trudne pytanie. Nigdy nie porownywalam swojej pracy do innych. Moje tworcze dzialanie jest dla mnie a cala reszta, ktora sie z tym wiaze to juz mily dodatek.

Dlaczego piszę (bloga) o tym co tworzę (robię)?  
Why do I write/create what I do? 
I am not a blogging type of person, but I am a social media type of person. I love communication between other crafters. Why I create ? I don't know... My heart needs it, my soul ? I like it, love it, I am passionate about it, it gives me something to do ;) it's my escape from reality. There is many reasons. All I know is that I cannot leave without my working space, table, and craft tools ! I was always crafty person so it's probably no surprise for many that know me for long.
Nie jestem typem blogera, lubie za to wszelkie platformy spolecznosciowe. Uwielbiam rozmawiac z innymi kreatywnymi osobami. Dlaczego tworze ? Nie wiem... z potrzeby serca, czy tez duszy ? Lubie to, kocham to, jestem calkiem oddana tej pasji. Mam jakies zajecie :) to moja ucieczka od rzeczywistosci. Jest wiele powodow dlaczego tworze. Jedno wiem, nie moge bez tego zyc, bez mojego miejsca tworczego, stolu i moich narzedzi. Od zawsze cos dlubalam, Ci co mnie znaja dluzej napewno to potwierdza.

Jak odbywa się mój proces tworzenia (pisania)?  
How does your writing/creating process work?

I have a vision. I see my finished project for a split second when I think about it :) then it's gone... I am trying to recreate what came to my head. It's always different with how I create. Sometimes it takes me 20 minutes and sometimes few weeks. I need to feel it, I don't like doing the same things all the time. I like to challenge myself and be different to the last project I made.  
Mam odrazu wizje. Widze moj ukonczony projekt przez sekunde, potem obrazek ten znika... staram sie odtworzyc to co mialam w glowie. To jest za kazdym razem inny sposob tworzenia. Czasem zabiera mi to 20 minut a czasem kilka tygodni. Musze to poczuc, nie lubie tworzyc w kolko podobnych rzeczy. Lubie stawiac sobie wyzwania i tworzyc za kazdym razem projekt inny od poprzednego.

I hope you had a chance to get me know a little bit better.
I wish to invite Sylwia from TandiArt to join the fun :)
Here is a snael peak of her amazing work !
Mam nadzieje, ze udalo sie Wam mnie poznac troszke lepiej.
Do zabawy zapraszam Sylwie z TandiArt.
Zobaczcie jakie tworzy cuda !


Sending you lots of creative hugs, Marta xx

"Follow your feelings" mixed media art journal page for Cardz'n'Scrapz

Hello in September ;)

Today I wish to show you my art journal pages. I created my spread in an old book. You can purchase book like that in every second hand store. Pages are old and brownish which I love.
When you will look closer you will be able to see that I have used my book upside down :) I like this kind of effect.
I used images from beautiful paper pad BoBunny (Enchanted Garden).
I sticked the cut outs from the papers and created some sort of composition.

You can also see beautiful Petaloo Paper Doilies. It added extra dimention to the project.
The brown colour around the edges was created with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.
I love how this turned out - like an old, rusted image.
Here is more phots as I could not limit myslef to only 2 or 3 as I loooved them all.
Those cute wording are from Cosmo Cricket - tiny text stickers.

I think I am falling in love with old, rust, vintage effect !
I hope you have enjoyed my creation and I will see you soon :)
Looooove, Marta xx
