Purple Vibes Hop Mixed Media Canvas "Crush and Burn"

Hello welcome all, after friendship hop we did this Spring, we decided to do it again and this time we also have GREAT prizes on our blogs, so please stay and read to enter !
ようこそ来てくださいました!

今年の春にブログリングを開催して大成功に収めたので 
今回また世界各国の12名のアーティストと一緒に行うことにしました。
今回のブログリングで日本国内在住の方々限定のプレゼント企画を行います。
下までご覧ください。



So here is my project.
I titled it as "Crush and Burn"

you will see how it was "crushed " in the video down below!!
こちらが私の作品です。
タイトルは「砕けて燃え上がれ」
この砕きの意味はこの後の動画にてお分かり頂けると思います

It is a work expressing how sometimes we or our spirits are being crushed.
But just like the mysterious creature phoenix, who reborn fm the fire, 
after we crushed and burnt by the lava
we come back even more powerful , more gorgeous and beautiful.
この作品のテーマは私の精神面でいろんな試練、困難により、
砕かれていき、しかしそれは
伝説の不死鳥のように
またもう一回火から舞い上がって
もっとパワフルに もっと美しく素晴らしくするためである。


I wanted this project to be something special, 
something phenomenal and impressive.
So I used the concept of "burnt" and used deep red colors to visualize 
これを作るときは、
インパクトのあり特別な作品になってもらおうと
「焼かれる」というコンセプトを濃い赤色で溶岩のような表現しようと思いました。



HEAVY texture is one of my trademarks
Do you like what you see ?
分厚い質感は私のトレードマーク💛

Mixed Media Glory Altered Frame for Nuneka


My soul sister Nuneka has just had her birthday and although I was late ,
I did make her a little bit something to show my love,
I made this gold color altered frame for her.

Because, our friendship is GOLDEN !!



I covered a wooden plate with heavy coats of texture paste 
Then I added a piece of frame fm a photo frame on the top,
then one more smaller resin frame.


I also add a few metal embellishments to make it more intricate.
I decorated some round shape frame with our photos and then her initials for finish.



My dearest friend is a guru of paper album, photographer and an awesome artist. 
I enjoyed making this for her , imagining how she is gonna smile when she opens her gifts.

I hope for those who have a golden friendship will also share with me some of your beautiful creations for your great friends.

Mixed Media Layout "Free to Fly for AALL & Create

Hey dear crafty friends, today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for AALL & Create Dt reveal.


I used just three products to create this sensational layout!

These are the products I used :
You can find them at https://www.aallandcreate.com/boutique
Stencil -
#22 by Abs

Stamps -
#10 by Abs
#38 by Kassa


I fussy cut the stamped images on scrap paper and acetate sheets and used them on layers after layers around the photo.



I also stamped a lot on the paper itself to create the volume for the whole piece. The only colors I used are Finnabair Impasto paints snow white and pitch black.


Sometimes colors speak more volume than the most colorful images can do.



I hope you like this LO !

Mixed Media Canvas "Demons and Fragile "

Good day all !

Today I have a canvas to share with you. 
The title is "Demons and Fragile "









Please let me explain a bit abt the concept of this work.
When I saw the two colors of the moodboard, 
the first images came to my mind were 
Red = Demons
Yellow and the wild flowers = Fragility


Demons; as in the insecurities, self doubt, uncertainty, lack of courage
Do all these sound familiar to you ?



Fragility ; being weak, easy to be hurt, discomfort, unable to break through


I am sure most of us has experienced all these, not just in art, but in our daily lives.






This piece is to express those feelings that exist deep in our heart and by using the main two colors RED and YELLOW, I try to envision their power their aura and the influence to us.

The 7dots previous collection "Lost and Found" is one of my fav.

I have used the yellow green base papers and the tags fm the series to layer up as the main structure of this canvas.
The multiple shapes and layers of the elements fm 7dots product indicates the complication of US. our own selves.





Are you fragile when you are facing your demons ?

Do you fight with you demons even if you are fragile ?

I hope this piece will inspire you to reflect on yourself, your life. and maybe your art journey even.








I want to take this moment to THANK you all the visitors fm the Netherlands. THANK You for visiting and gave me such great support!
Ik wil dit moment nemen om alle bezoekers uit Nerderland te bedanken. Dankjewel voor jullie bezoek en geweldige steun.

Mixed Media Altered Frame for AALL & Create

Konnichiha !

Today I have a simple yet gorgeous DT project for AALL & Create.

We do want to own all those beautiful useful art medium as much as we can however the reality is that we cant. So when we do not have texture paste on hand, what can we do ?

We make do !
Here is a project using just TWO stencils fm AALL & Create + rusty paste to create the incredible heavy texture !


These are the products I used :
You can find them at https://www.aallandcreate.com/boutique
Stemcil -
#22 by Abs
#34 by Aida

Stamp -
#26 by BK
#50 by Olga


It was very simple, I just used a palette knife to apply Finnbair brown rusty paste on stencil #34 by Aida and #22 by Abs. Heat set, and then the heavy texture will appear like MAGIC !
The colors are done by various starburst sprays fm Lindy's Gang


I hope you find this technique easy and useful.
Please try it on and tag me if you make something !! 
I would very much like to see !

Mixed Media Turquoise Canvas


Hi all, Today I made a mixed media canvas with my second fav color Turquoise.

I am very thankful for the very generous DT box fm Lindy's Gang. I have requested the startburst sprays Delphinium Turquoise and Afternoon Delight Denim. The colors and the SHIMMER are incredible! absolutely gorgeous !



I added a lot of elements to make the texture. Finnabair texture paste black sand and paper paste are the main. Then I started adding many micro beads, bead accessories, sequins,thread and tiny flake on the top.


after that I used my fav Finnabair brown rust paste to highlight all the texture. Some lighter and some darker. Since the Lindy's sprays were not completely tried and it mixed to the brown color became more dark and close to black.


I have to admit, I am NOT a big fan of sea shells and all things beach related. But my dearest talented friend Olga Ravenskaya gifted me some so I made good use of them and put them on the focal point of the piece.




I am very happy with this piece and I hope you like it too !
