Altered butterfly by Marta Piekarczyk

I love that Prima Marketing Butterfly - it is a kind of ready element to be embellished. I decided to add a little bit color to it and to go in retro style. I have used a lot of Acrylic Paints - ArtAlchemy - and Color Bloom mists. I have created interesting effect of rust using Prima - Art Extravagance - Rust Effect Paste.

At the beginning I covered the whole base with gesso. After gluing the cogs, I started adding colours. At the bottom you can find acrylic paints and I have ended colouring with mists. Final tough was done with white gesso.

Hi! My name is Karolina Czajkowska, I'm 26 and I live in Poland. In a daily life I'm an architect, but architecture wasn't enough to express my artist soul. I started my scrapbooking adventure 4 years ago. I love all areas of scrapbooking but definately my favourite style is mixed media. It's the best way for me to express myself and to make something extraordinary from common things. I'm so exciting and so happy to be a guest designer at Mixed Media Place!

Today I would like to show you a layout with a nice photo of my godson. I have used two papers from 7 dots studio for my base and then I built my high composition on it. To secure my papers I used clear gesso I don't know how could I live without it! Prima clear gesso is perfect. It's transparent and matte. 

I added some texture on my backgroud with modeling paste through the stencils. To give my paste a color, I added two colors of primary elements pigment to it. When my composition was finished I took a coffee, color bloom sprays and the same pigments to make some nice stains around everything.

Here are detailed photos:

Ok, so that's all. Hope you like it. Have a nice days guys :)

Remember This by Tanya Palamarchuk

Hello everyone!
Tanya here.
I made LO with my favorite paper by 7 dots Studio! At this time I worked with Soulmates Collection.

I have a few photo of process.
1. I choose clear photo and paper from Soulmates Collection

2. I combined it with another piece of paper from this collection, the torn one.

3. I love stickers and die-cut so I have added them to different parts of the background.

4. Time to create some texture!
I used TCW stencil and texture paste with sand

Some black stamping, a few embellishments and my project is done!
