Break free - a canvas

Hello my friends!
Today I want to show you a canvas I made.
When it comes to these little art pieces, I feel that I'm just a beginner so I thought to get some experience by practice (practice is ALWAYS a good idea!).

I happened to see a lovely Mixed Media Place moodboard the other day and it became my starting point.  I got inspired by the butterfly of the top left photo and the softness of the moodboard in general. As the message of my canvas is "break free" (which means that it needs to have an airy feel), I tried to give motion to the creation by making a light blue trail on the right - like a soft breeze that blows on the cluster from the left and takes everything with it.

Lots of 13 arts media (of course), as you see



some details




The Mixed Media place moodboard




I think I could do better than this, but as I said, experience is achieved by constant practice.  
Now that I'm examining it more thoroughly, I believe that I should correct a few details. 
But I'm ok with it, as it is!

Anyway, I hope you like it.  So that's everything for now!  Have a beautiful day!

Love is worth waiting for

Good morning!
Yesterday Berry71Bleu published my guest-designer's take on the lovely March Challenge.
It is an honour to be invited as a special guest in an amazing challenge blog, such as Berry71Bleu. Thank you very much, ladies! 

So today I thought to share my layout here as well.

My page






This page was inspired by a very dear friend of mine, Tusia Lech, who is also the designer of the 7 Dots Studio Verano Azul Collection.  I had her in my mind while making it - I guess that's why this page came out as a very delicate, soft, tender and elegant creation.

So as love is the biggest and most valuable emotion a human can experience, it is worthy of our patience. Believe in love and it will come to you. This is what I think.

I had mentioned in a previous post here that I intend to make less loaded pages. I'm happy that this one is not full of small details and mixed-media techniques. I'm trying to prove to myself that I can be more minimalistic lol.


I want to submit this page to the current 7 Dots Studio challenge, whose theme is EMOTIONS. I will take part in it as a contestant, not as a member of the DT - a nice first time :).

Look at the inspirational circle





So I hope this layout inspires you to talk about love and wait for love and create about love. It is much needed lately...

Have a nice weekend!

2 scoops of ice-cream

Good morning...
Here I am again to share a page I created today for the More than Words March challenge.
A really messy one. I mixed up a lot of different media (gesso, mists, a pencil, glitter) and my hands got dirty - actually they have several patches of brown, teal and green inks.

I chose to talk about little pleasures in life that can be very blissful :).
One of them is mocha ice-cream.  I just adore it. Whenever I have some, I feel like I'm in heaven! I love the flavours of coffee and chocolate together! So 2 scoops of mocha ice-cream are just a little bit of magic for me...




I pulled my elements and paper from the 7 Dots Studio Thoughtskeeper Collection which I mainly combined with a modern photo as well as with lots of 13 Arts white gesso.  I always use this one instead of modelling paste, it works better for me, as it's thick and steady.  So I put some on my title and then added gold glitter on it. I also used it with 2 stencils for extra texture.

Like I already said, I was inspired by the More than Words March challenge.





I hope you like my page! Thank you very much for visiting my blog and for your beautiful comments.  They are much appreciated!
