MMW#28: AMMG with a Twist (Moodboard)

Hi Everyone!

Another month has passed and we re half way through the year already. Time flies when you're having fun!

Thank you to all who entered the last challenge. Once again, you totally rocked! We will be back on 20th August to announce the winner and the Fab 3 so don't forget to come back to check.

This month we're finding inspiration from a mood board created by Irena:

Theme: Anything Mixed Media Goes with Moodboard 

Sponsor: Glitzcraft

Prize: £15 voucher

We have some amazing inspiration for you from the fabulous Design Team. Leslie and Virag are taking some time off this month. Please wish them all the best for they need to feel the love right now. Lots of love from me to you both! xxx

The rest of the team have been busy and more creative than ever. Please see for yourself...

Hi all! I saw the peacock feather on the mood Board and decided to make a canvas with this lady.

Please come back on 27th August 2017, 7:30pm to view a tutorial ;) 

This month our mood board has peacock feather. I have created a canvas(40/40 cm) where I have used a stencil, modelling paste and acrylic paints. I painted this peacock myself and I hope to inspire you.

For our August challenge I made a tiny little book. The notebook's size is just 4x3 cm. My inspirations were two upper pictures - I combined the peacock feathers and the dew drops. The notebook is made from zero - the cover, the cabouchon, the binding - all made by me with lots of love for miniature art.

Hi Friends! This moth we have really colorful mood boards , I love the green a yellow combo so much !! It makes me feel so fresh !! I have created a layout on canvas ,hope you have like my creation !!

Pure awesomeness! Thank you, DT Ladies! 

I hope you are feeling inspired and can join the challenge. Please feel free to create anything mixed media based, but if you do like a bit of a challenge, then show us how you would interpret the mood board. We can't wait to see what you'll make! Good luck and mainly... have fun with it! 

Stay creative!

Guest Designer: AnastasiaElena

Hey crafty peeps!

I hope you are all well and keeping busy!

We are joined by a very talented lady today and one of our previous winners, AnastasiaElena! She is here to share her project with us and what a gem it is...

Hi mixed media lovers!

Today with you AnastasiaElena. I am very excited to be a guest designer!

I live in Saint-Petersburg(Russia), it's located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland.

Scrapbooking is my passion for several years. This is my relaxation and my way to express my emotions. I love to make layouts, tags, canvases, altered objects and really
like to reuse old things. My latest passion is ATC's. It's so fun to create little stories on small pieces.
In the last couple of years I prefer the style mix of media. I adore sprays, pastes, paints, inks, hot embossing etc. 

I love Summer more than other times of the year and I made a postcard about the Northern Summer. Our summer is not so colorful and unfortunately it has not many warm days. So in my work more dreams and fantasies).

I used laces for background and color up them of sprays and dry pigments. For painting shells I used products from the Finnabair Art Alchemy series.
I like to use wire in my works and in this work I made a sailboat out of it.

Awesome! Awesome and more awesomeness! We really love your postcard, AnastasiaElena and thank you for sharing it here with us! Hopefully we see you around! 

Thank you for stopping by, everyone! I hope you enjoyed today's post. We'll be back next week with a new challenge so prepare for some more mixed media inspiration! 

All the best!

Guest Designer: Nora Paolini

Hi everyone!

We have a special guest with us today! One of our recent winners, Nora Paolini, has joined us to share her beautiful art with us...

I am Nora from Uruguay, South America. After a few years of getting my law degree, I met an Italian guy, who would become my husband. Therefore, I moved to Italy, in 2007. Massi and I live in a small town, in the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region, with our doggie Lucky. I love photography, travelling and reading. Two years ago, I found a new passion of crafting, and I have been learning techniques and experimenting since then. I love mixed media and altered art.

I took a plain wooden heart and made some stencilling with modeling paste. Then, I glued down on top of it some flowers, chipboards and art stones. The letters and hearts chipboards are from Scrapmatts. I used some DecoArt crackle paint. I coloured everything using acrylic paints (metallic and glossy); DecoArt fluids (Prussian blue hue and raw sienna). Finally, I applied some DecoArt metallic lustre (brilliant turquoise).

And a few close ups... 

Thank you very much, Nora! Your altered heart is absolutely stunning! We hope to see more of your art via our challenges! 

And thank you for stopping by, everyone! Don't forget, there is still time to enter the current challenge HERE. You do not have to go with the twist, it is optional, so let your imagination fly high and create something amazing! 

Good luck! Stay creative!
