"The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives" mixed media canvas

Hi my dear crafty friends,

Today I'm with you again, this time with mixed media canvas... Well instead of a canvas I used decorative pannel this time. The structure fitted perfectly to this month's Mixed media & Art moodboard which was the inspiration behind this project.

I used gorgeous Bob n' Betty papers from three different collections: "Bare Essentials" collection  papers - They are absolutely perfect for mixed media layouts. There was one particular set of papers in this gorgeous collction that I just fell in love with right away. So I decided to use it for the background of my today's mixed media canvas. I've also added a woodgrain paper from "Cottage Blush" collection on top of it and used some Decoupage papers from "Imperial" collection behind my photo. They are not supposed to be used like this, but they fitted perfectly so why not right? Mixed media is all about experimenting.

You can find all of the Bob n' Betty papers in their online store. Feel welcome to visit!

I' ve also used lots of Lindy's gang product for coloring: Tibetan Poppy Teal, Time Travel Teal Starburst sprays, Landlubber Green Moon Shadow Mist, Bratwurst Brown Magical Shaker for coloring rusty chipboards and Sassy Sapphire Embossing powder.

And of course there is lots of gorgeous Scrapiniec chipboards used and some gorgeous Prima flowers.

For the project I was inspired by two challenges - Mixed media & Art November Challenge "Mysterious" with its sketch, background, where I used sculptured wall pannel instead of a canvas, colors and some plexi glass pannel on top of it (hanging bottles on the moodboard), paper staples and some rusty elements.

I was also inspired by this month's More than words challenge, where the inspirations is woodgrain pattern and outdoors theme. I used woodgrain patterned paper, some forest wood and outdoors picture and a quote.

Hope you'll like my project and see you soon again!
Hugs, Aleksandra

Winter Porch project for Scrapiniec

Hi dear friends. We had our first snow this week and it was magical. Our kids were so happy. But I realized that the older I get, the more I love watching snow falling through the cosy living room window. I love the look of a white, snowy, peaceful landscape, but I also love to be warm. Also, did you noticed how such afternoons are perfect for crafting ;) And thinking about it, I remembered I have my Scrapiniec porch yet to be dressed in winter mood. So I decided to make it happen! I love how it came out! Hope you'll like it too!

I used following Scrapiniec chipboards, that you can find in their online shop:

For coloring I used few shades of Lindy's gang Starburst sprays:
- TiffanyLou Blue,
- Time Travel Teal,
- Edelweiss Moss green.

I also used Lindy's gang Purely White embossing powder.

Hope you like my project. here is also a video tutorial available on my youtube channel. I'll be happy of your visit there also. ;)

Have a great weekend and see you soon again!
Hugs, Aleksandra

And here is where the inspiration came from: Mixed media & Art - October challenge: "Fantasy"

I used lots of Magicals for it: (some of them are older editions and are discontinued) Vodoo violet blue, Jazzy jivin purple, Frosted forget-me-not, Edelweiss moss green, Gator gumbo olive, Bayou boogie gold. And I also used some Tibetan poppy teal StarburstAutumn Maple Crimson Starburst for the rose and Bling-y-Blonde Starburst for stars. For the eart I used Bratwurst brown Magical Shaker.
