Five DIY easy mixed media gift cards / МК по миксмедийным папкам

Hi guys! 
This is me on the Lindy's Blog today with a new tutorial on how I made 5 different gift card holders for a professional photographer to give or sell to her clients. These holders are meant to keep the photography session gift cards.

According to the photographer´s wish, all the card holders are in different style. However, I used the same mixed media "algorithm" on all of them. It is pretty easy. Take a look!


Mixed media place June challenge / Органайзер для скрап-материалов

NEW CHALLENGE at Mixed Media Place!

This time I decorated a kitchen spice organizer, and transformed it into a storage box for my craft materials. I love green and yellow colors a lot, so this month´s moodboard is perfect for my table organizer.

I covered the blank with the tissue paper, gluing it with the 3D Matte Gel. Then I prepared a little of dyed texture paste, mixing the same matte gel with the yellow mica powder. I added some extra texture to the surface, using this shiny texture paste and a stencil. Additional elements like washi tape, art pebbles and metallic embellishment served well as minor decorations.

Altered mermaid + tutorial / Альтер-русалочка + MK

Dear mixed media friends! 

This is Maria Lillepruun with you today on Mixed Media Place. My new project is an altered plastic mermaid that my daughter has broken. I decided to turn it into a little shiny sculpture. Everybody likes mermaids, right? 
I fell in love with Powertex textile hardeners long ago. This is an endless inspiration for mixed media projects.

Enjoy the video tutorial

The basic process looks like this:
First, I assembled the broken doll on the natural rock that is meant to serve as the sculpture base. Then, I wrapped the doll in fabric, that had been previously dipped in Powertex medium.
The next day it all was dry, and I could play with all kind of different media on it. I covered the newly made sculpture in white gesso, and later colored it with Lindy´s Gang sprays.
Then, I added big plastic beads and glass art pebbles, gluing them onto the fabric. I also added more texture to the surfaces with green microbeads, gluing them with 3D Gloss Gel.
Later, I added deeper shades of color with alcohol inks by Ranger. When all was dry, I glued some decorative silver foil onto the mermaid, and sprinkled glitter on top of it.
The final result is complex and elaborate, as well as chic and glamorous.


De gustibus non disputandum est

В блоге Глубины Подсознания новое, очень свободное задание из серии "фразы" - De gustibus non disputandum est (О вкусах не спорят). Недавно поймала себя на мысли, что в прошлой жизни я, наверное, была пауком. И это при том, что в нынешней я их до одури боюсь!!! Но вот что всегда со мной, так это какая-то нездоровая мания в скрапе все переплетать, перематывать, связывать... Замечаю за своими работами очень часто, что даже если и стараюсь не переборщить с декором, то в итоге все равно получаются джунгли. И не важно из тесьмы ли, из цветов, из чипборда или металюшек... Истинная паутина выходит! А у вас есть такие фишки, которые на бессознательном уровне у вас в творчестве получаются? И, может быть, вас самих иногда бесят? :)

I decided to make a little mystical layout using one of my favorite 7 Dots Studio collection "Garden Party". This collection speaks white summer nights to me, so I think it is totally acute at this time of the year. Faires, bug and butterflies, strong colour contrasts - this is a very beautiful combination.

Wedding photo album overview and small tutorial

/По-русски ниже/

Hello! I would like to show you the giant wedding album that I made for my brother and his young wife :) This time I actually spent a month creating it, because it fits 100 pictures inside. I work pretty slow on the albums... But as the Craft O´Clock mixed media team member, I made a quick video on how I blend the decorations in the album together by adding some mixed media elements here and there. I do this for all my paper projects :) I love creating of paper, and still the final result is never satisfying for me without a small addition of paints. I also made another video with the full album overview. I hope you´ll find it useful. 

For this album, I used A LOT of patterned paper! I basically used up the whole "Vintage Bisou" collection, mixing together the paper of different sizes, such as 30x30, A4, 20x20 and 15x15 cm. I also added some relevant patterned paper and the fussy cut elements of the same collection.


Привет! Ох, сейчас будет много фото :) Я наконец-таки доделала свадебный альбом своему брату. Полтора месяца почти ежедневного скрапа... Да, я знаю, жуть как долго :) Но именно так сложно у меня получаются альбомы. Видимо, поэтому я делаю их крайне редко. Этот, кстати, уже вмещает 100 фото и вместит еще больше, если надо.
Оставлю эти фотографии здесь для архива. Делала альбом полностью из винтажной коллекции польского бренда Craft O´Clock "Vintage Bisou". И еще я сделала видео-обзор и мини-МК про то, как я дорабатываю готовый альбом красками.

Art Daily Cafe layout

Dear artistic friends!
The theme for May at Art Daily Cafe is witchery and magic, and it is something that always intrigues, doesn´t it? My art journal spread is inspired by the round shapes and nature green on our moodboard. I thought of the very important esoteric phenomena, such as cartomancy and astrology, and incorporated them on my layout. I do not know much about these things, and I am sceptical about alternative knowledges. Nevertheless, I have always been interested in them. Life is just more interesting this way, isn´t it?
