MixedMedia Embroidery Hoop – monthly challenges


I am back with another exciting project I just created. I altered an embroidery hoop, it can be a wall decor or just simply a decor you can leave on a dressing table of a girl.

Let’s look closely into the project.

I used the steampunk clock chipboard from creativeembelishment as my main piece in the work, as suggested in the challenge post at artplayground.

I have used many products from finnabair Prima, on my project. I enjoy using a lot of mediums on my projects to emphasize my embelishments and layout as a whole.

The colour scheme at artplayground as shown below has also inspired me to choose the colours that I have used on my layout.

Along with this I was also inspired by the moodboard at mixedmediaandart challenge for May.

I just loved the colours in this moodboard and the layout inspired me to arrange my elements the way I have on my project.

Thank you for dropping by!

Prima Finnabair Patina Effect Light House

I am back with another exiting tutorial on my YouTube channel a wooden light house using the patina paste effect by Prima.

Just recently Prima came up with their Finnabair line products at Micheals here in Canada and U.S. so I got a chance to grab many of those awesome products! Than I thought hmm.. I have shopped enough now it’s time to alter something. That is when I decided I would alter the light house I had bought a while a go with the patina paste effect by Finnabair. It was easy to use and am really surprised with the results.

Anniversary Present/ Mixedmedia Page/ January Challenges

I am back with another project I created as a present for my dear husband as a anniversary present.

I believe anniversaries are those milestones in any relationship that are meant for reliving your past memories that you spent together. That’s why I have made a tradition where every year on our anniversary I give my husband a present that is handmade by me. During my first year I gifted him a big photo frame with photos of us and our families as he was far away from his family and was missing them. Second year I made a plaque with a quote. Third year a sweet album with photos of us. Finally this year I thought to do something special as it was a 4th milestone in our marriage. I made him a shadow box as shown below:


Some close ups of this are as below:
