'Life' mixed media journal page + VIDEO tutorial by Marta Lapkowska

'Life' mixed media journal page + VIDEO tutorial by Marta Lapkowska

Hello everyone and Happy New 2015 year.
I hope you will have an amazing coming year.
I wish you many happy moments and health as my dad keep saying it's most important :)

It's my last project for 2014.
Last but one of my favourite. 

In this project I used my favourite of all sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang. On the video you will have all the names for all sprays used.  
 If you would like to get inspired by Lindy's design team here is link to their blog.

To build my backround at the very beggining I used mediums from Finnabair. Gesso and pastes

Journals are my love. They tought me how to play and let go.
Creating spreads is like taking a walk into new world. Learning, discovering and most importantly enjoying.
Have you got your journal ?
Did you start one ?
Maybe new 2015 year is a perfect moment to begin.

I have also prepared video tutorial for my page.
It's mixed media page with 'decoupage touch' as I call it technique - decujournal.
I added decoupage technique which I learned ages ago while making decu bottles, home decorations etc.
I hope you will enjoy this process and feel inspired for new 2015 !

'Friendship' journal page for Lindy's Stamp Gang + VIDEO / 'Przyjazn' wpis do dziennika dla Lindy's Stamp Gang + VIDEO

Hello everyone !
Witajcie kochani !

I hope you are all good.
I am sure you are in the rush of Christmas prepartions. Am I right ?
This year I decided to slow it down. We got our Christmas tree up only today... I hope to spend more time 'doing nothing' and enjoy family time without all this running and getting ready.
So far it is working, we are watching telly together, laugh and eat some sweet treats.
Happy days.

Mam nadzieje, ze u Was wszystko dobrze.
Zapewne szykujecie sie do swiat, czyz nie ?
W tym roku zdecydowalam zwolnic, dopiero dzis ubralismy choinke... Mam nadzieje, ze spedzimy wiecej czasu 'nic nie robiac' i cieszac sie rodzinnym czasem bez tej gonitwy.
Poki co udaje sie nam, cisza i spokoj, ogladanie wspolnie telewizji, smiech i wcinanie lakoci.

Today I wish to quickly share with you my journal page. I ceated this work for Lindy's Stamp Gang current colour challenge. 
Dzis chcialam tak szybko pokazac Wam moj nowy wpis do dziennika. Praca ta powstala dla Lindy's Stamp Gang, na obecne kolorystyczne wyzwanie. Lindy to producent sprayow, farb itp.

I used gelli plate to create my backround. Did you ever play with a gelli plate ? If not, make sure you will have a go. There is so many possibilities with this 'craft toy'. You can use sprays, paints, stencils and so on. I am still discovering it myself.
Uzylam zelowej tabliczki to stworzenia tla. Znacie te tabliczke ? Jesli nie to koniecznie musicie sprobowac. Tak wiele jest mozliwosci, mozecie uzyc sprayow, farb.

On the video you can see how I play with gelli plate and sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I hope you will enjoy my video. You will see my journal page from start to finish.
Na video tutorialu mozecie zobaczyc jak uzywam tek wlasnie plytki zelowej.

Click on the colour challenge picture and it will take you to the colour challenge where you can win  $50 Gift Certificates to the store! - there will be 5 winners !

Christmas cards for Prima as Finnabair Creative Team

Hello there !
Let it shine! It's Christmas time !
I am so happy to share with you my glitter, Christmas inspirations for Prima as part of Finnabair Creative Team member.
Please take a look at my Christmas cards. They were created with small wooden pieces. I had quite a lot of those branches in my stash and hundreds of creative visions. I could see the Christmas tree right away and the wooden star came second.
In both cards the backround was created with Prima paper from Finnabair's Sunrise Sunset collection. Here and there, I covered the branches with Heavy White Gesso and while the gesso was still wet, I sprinkled it with white Glitter from 'Ebony & Ivory' set. I was trying to achieve the effect of snow on the wood. I also added some Soft Matte Gel medium sprinkled with glitter.
In both cards those cute green dots in the middle were made with hot glue gun and glitter. You can create your own shiny crystals with glitter and glue.
I hope you have enjoyed this close to nature christmas inspiration.
Love, Marta  xx
