Finnabair Art Recipe Challenge for October Entry

Another Fun Challenge at Finnabair Art Recipe Challenge October
I'm back with a small Mixed Media Tag using lots of Finnabair products!  I am recycling the packaging and started creating texture using Art Extravagance Stone Effect Pumice Paste and White Crackle Texture Paste then I added Art Alchemy Metallique Royal Blue and Hazelnut Acrylic Paint to the background.

I grabbed embellishments including an assortment of Finnabair Mechanicals and started creating my design.

The White Crackle Texture Paste shows up ever so slightly!  I painted the Star chipboard pieces with Art Alchemy Metallique Ancient Coin Acrylic Paint.  

I added Art Stones and Glitter to the Mechanical Leaf embellishment and also added Gold microbeads.

Once I was happy with the placement of the embellishments I used Art Alchemy Green Brocade Opal Magic Wax on the edges of the entire tag!

I love using all Finnabair products,  so many different ways to use them!  I hope you get a chance to join the challenge,  it takes me out of my box!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Creating!

My Entry for Finnabair's September Art Recipe Challenge

Wow did you see the Art Challenge for September?  This definitely was a challenge for me,  I don't usually use this color combination!  Once I quit thinking about what I was going to create I couldn't stop with embellishing!

I used Finnabair's Stencil-Flourish,  it's one of my favorite stencil for my mixed media projects!  The texture paste I used thru the stencil was another favorite of mine,  the White Sand Texture paste.  Once the texture paste was dry I painted over with Finnabair's Heavy White Gesso,  let that dry and then starting adding Liquid Acrylic Carmine and Prima's Color Bloom Worn Leather.  

Once all the paint was dry I did alittle bit of stamping and then painted my old paint brush with Heavy White Gesso then added Brown Rust Effects to the metal part of the paint brush.  I also added the Cream Texture paste Fantasy to the wooden part of the paint brush.  I used some Finnabair Moulds and added more Cream Texture Paste Fantasy paint to the wings and star.  Once the texture paste was dry I then added Carmine to the wings and to the star,  diluted it with some water and let it dry. 

I added Reneabouquets Handcrafted Dragonflies that went so amazing with the colors!  I gathered lots of embellishments from my stash and started glueing down everything.  

To complete this tag I added Gold Rush Glitter Glass Art Ingredients.
