What you see matters - Art Journal Spread for Art Daily Cafe

 Hello crafty friends!

It's Anat here with my new Art Journal Spread  made according to Art Daily Cafe MoodBoard.

I have to say I can very much relate  to the theme "Read between the lines" and even more to the quote on the Moodboard. I'm that kind of person that somehow from very early, already in my childhood, I get those unsaid things! Both in touch with people and reading Books, Poems which I love!

To feature  this theme I made my spread pretty simple. I have chosen to add a quote which in other words say something similar: "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."

Don't forget to enjoy your crafting!!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come with.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Lantern - Art Recipe inspiration for Finnabair

 Hello crafty friends!

The October Moodboard is amazing! Definitely fabulous combination of imaged, colors and products!

I love all kind of lanterns so when I saw them in the Moodboard I knew immediately that is what I'm going to do.

I wanted to achieve the effect of light inside the lantern, but not on transparency, the Tiger Orange Liquid Acrylic paint on the paper was just perfect for that.  For the texture on the lantern I've mixed 2 Jewel effect-pastes: Crushed Amber and Golden Dust.

Some of the elements were painted with Impasto paints and  others with Metalique paints. All elements were rubbed with the fabulous white pearl.

Last step was to add the incredible Phoenix effect paste on some elements and near them; the look when it dries is really gorgeous!

Looking forward to seeing your creations for this month!

Rusty wooden basket with video tutorial for Finnabair

 Hello crafty friends!

It's Anat Here! I'm back today to share my new project accompanied by a video Tutorial. It's an altered Wooden Basket (or should I call it a Box/drawer…)


Who said Rust doesn’t go with pink?? Not me for sure! I have just done it and I really LOVE the outcome! 

To get a piece where the elements look like they have been carved into the wood, I used fresh clay with Finnabair's mould and so much more. You have to watch it and see the process!

I hope you like my project and will enjoy watching the step by step video!
