Mądra sowa- A wise owl

,,A wise old owl sat on an oak. The more he saw the less he spoke .The less he spoke the more he heard. Why  can't we all be like that bird '' - Edward Hersey Richards -

Witam Dzisiaj chciałbym pokazać Wam mój wiosenny blejtram dla Retro Kraft Shop. Jak już pewnie zauważyliście uwielbiam używać metalowe elementy. To zawsze jest  wielka przyjemność dla mnie ,aby tworzyć coś z dużą ilością metalowych dodatków.

Hi Today I would like to show you my spring canvas with one of my favorite birds- owl.
As you know I love to play with metal elements . It's always a big fun for me to create something with lots of metal embellishments .

Aby stworzyć interesujące tło użyłam gazę , papier i preparat pękający DecoArt. Do dekoracji sowy użyłam pocięte metalowe serwetki. Następnie przykleiłam wszystkie dodatki: kwiaty , ptaki , łyżkę , metalowe kółka zębate buteleczkę i wiele innych. Pokryłam je czarnym gessem oraz pomalowałam farbami akrylowymi DecoArt i mgiełkami Distress spray stain. Kiedy wszystko wyschło nałożyłam palcami Inkę Gold.

 For my background I used lots of gazue , tissue papier and DecoArt crackle glaze to add more intereting texture. I cut into the pieces metal doily and decorating this beautiful owl. Then I glued all embellishments : flowers , birds ,spoon ,gears, bottle and many ,many others.I covered it with black gesso and painted over it with DecoArt acrylic paints and Distress spray stain. When everything dry I used fingers to add some highlights with Inka Gold.

Mam nadzieję ,że spodobał Wam się mój mix mediowy wiosenny blejtram . Pozdrawiam Aisha
I hope you have enjoyed my mix media spring canvas . Hugs Aisha

Mermaid in a jar

 “She loved the sea. She liked the sharp salty smell of the air, and the vastness of the horizons bounded only by a vault of azure sky above. It made her feel small, but free as well.” ― George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords

Happy spring Everyone !!Today  I would like to show you a new project for Cretive Embellishments. I'ts altered jar with awesome steampunk mermaid inside. I like to altered some old bottles or  jars, and transform them into something different and magical. I love fantasy creatures and I just had vision in my head to create underwater world in a jar. This is the reason why I love love love Creative Embellishments chipboards they have a huge selection of fantasy magical chippies like : unicorns, mermaids or dragons. Ok here we go !

First I layer coat of clear gesso on my jar , while the gesso is still wet I start layering some gazue. In some places I add some  crackle clear paste and white crackle paste.I altered gears and rings with black gesso . When it dry I glued all metal keys ,cogs , cabochons and seaweed on the jar .I also add some real shells , microbeads and texture sand paste .I left  the jar to dry overnight ,because I used lots of gesso and glue.

To create inside of the jar I used reindeer moss for a background , then I placed some sheels and small old bottle .I painted this beautiful steampunk mermaid with black gesso and some mettalic colors .I also covered seaweed with white gesso and painted with green tones .

On the top of the jar I glued steampunk clock and metal flower. I painted them with acrylic paints an mettalic paints .
In the last step I add some sea colors. I started with the greens and then I used some blue tones. Misting all around the jar.

Galaxy canvas

,,Sometimes I sit alone under the stars and think of galaxes inside my heart,and truly wonder if anyone will ever want to make sense of all that I am'' - Christopher Poindexter

Hello everyone !!!Today I would like to show you another  piece of mix media art created for Creative Embellishments blog post .
 I love to look on the dark sky with a hundret milion stars . Then I feel so calm and happy .It's marvelous ineed to watch on television the system of stars, spirals , Milky Way and to speculate on what we may yet find at galaxy's edges.This inspired me to create Galaxy canvas..

For this project I used my favorite colors; blue, black , and gold. First I gessoed the whole canvas with White gesso, then I used  Circle Bokeh stencil and modeling paste. When the background was dry. I glued gears , parts of clocks and gauze

To add more layers I used gel medium as a dimensional adhesive  I added steampunk frameflourish dragonflies and dreamcatcher. to the canvas to create dimension .Then I covered all embellishments with a layer of heavy black gesso.

 I start to spray with lots of mists :pearl black , navy blue, pearl violet ,gold. I also used lots of mica powders : gold , rust ,green , gold opal magic and Purple. In the last step with a brush I sprinkled all canvas with withe gesso.

I linking up my canvas at this challenges;
