Mixed Media Journal Cover + VIDEO Tutorial for Dusty Attic

Hi everyone!

Firstly I must tell you how excited and happy I am to share with you my very first project for Dusty Attic, australian manufacturer.
It's my great pleasure to reperesnt such a wonderful brand and be side by side with all the talented girls from the team! It'a a dream come true !

Today's art will show you one of my most favourite way of creating and expressing myself.
I am very much into deep mixed media creations.
I decided to alter my own calendar cover with all the stunning embellishments with addition of some amazing colours. I have also made a full video tutorial for you :)

To create my background textured I used Webbing stencil from Dusty.
As my focal point I added most stunning chipboard Vintage Frame ever! This is a perfect example of a product that would make your design stand out.
I also added cute Dusty Attic Flowers in white so that I could alter them and add some colour.

To colour my project I used few sprys from Lindy's Stamp Gang and Inka Gold.
I made a full video tutorial for you, I hope you will enjoy it and find it inspirational.

Here you have few more close up photos.

Sending you many creative hugs, Marta xx

Hi & Hello everyone !
Welcome in 2016 ! It's Marta Lapkowska here and I am delighted that I can start my new year with you guys !

Recently I am in love with creating small pieces of art...  I called them 'Tiny Art' :)
Here is my first project of the new year, from my 'Tiny Art' series which I hope you will enjoy.

Did you know that you can use Mica Powders to colour ? Use them like painting powder ?
I will show you in few steps how you can colour your stamped image. I used same technique to colour the whole project.
To start stamp your image and choose your mica colours.

To colour your image all you need is brush and water. Dip your brush into the water and then into your mica powder. I added some dark and bright shading by using both black and white gesso. Then I cut out my butterfly :)

Lastly I attached my die cut butterfly into my project.

I hope you have enjoyed my make and found it inspirational.
I wish you all the best for this year, many creative journeys and never ending creative mojo :)

Hugs, Marta xx

Few words from me !!!
