Winter canvas for Cherish the memory


I would like to show you my mixed media canvas with winter theme. I love Studio Light die cut blocks which you can buy by Cherish the memory. You do not have to make only cards with them, you can create any type of project.

For my canvas I used photo from Freepik. Than some die cuts snowflakes, paper flowers. Modeling paste and snowflake stencil. For colouring I used Brusho pigment (Aliazarin crimson) and Brusho acrylic spray (Shimmer gold). I wanted to achieve very romantic light canvas. I hope such type of canvas can make even beginner. For background stamping I used Studio Light stamps and Archival ink.

Christmas canvas for Colourcraft


I would like to share with you romantic Christmas canvas. I love Christmas crafting and with Brusho acrylics sprays it is so easy. I also like to combine products for papercrafts and for floristics.

Base of my canvas is shaped MDF (made by my friend who owns laser). I applied white gesso over whole canvas. Than I used paste to create some texture with snowflake stencil.  Than I glued different embellishments – plastic flowers, pinecones, die cut leaves, pebbles and also cute wooden reindeer. At one side I made whole arrangement. I also used some art stones just to add even more interest and wax for defining edges of my snowflake canvas.

And now the fun part – colouring with sprays. I wanted to have red-gold-white canvas. So my choice was Acrylic mist spray – scarlet and Acrylic shimmer spray –  shimmer gold. That combination is really awesome and as you can see colours added really nice final touch to my canvas. When you do not want to have “sharp” splatters you can always dilute them with bit of water.

Christmas cards for ScrapFX


it is end of September so oficially we can start Christmas inspiration. I made three cards with Kaisercraft papers. They are very light mixed media – for background I used embossing paste and sparkle clear embossing powder and for colouring chipboards I used Brusho Mettalic acrylic spray. I did also some sewing – sewing paper is fun.

Mixed media layout for MixedUp


today I have for you very dark layout. I went really far away from my comfort zone. For my layout I used 7 dots studio papers – the newest collection Hazy days. I wanted to make layout without flowers. Really you do not need any flowers for you layouts. I also used Brusho pigment powders for it – they were invented for water colouring artist, they have really long history and now they are attaching our mixed media world.
Main black chipboard is from ScrapFX . I also used stencil from Scrap FX. All supplies you can find under photos.

1. applying colours through stencil – take sponge or Distress ink applicator and any ink and apply it through stencil – I made this way dark green leaves and black leaves and yellow flowers

2. use the technique above but apply it on to paper (you can use patterned paper too) and cut it, and you have your own embellishment

3. when you apply black ink through stencil it will look like stamping – so for my canvas I did not use ANY stamp, just black ink through stencil

canvas_bloghop - 1Story behind canvas

There is old ruin of mill which stands behind village where live my parents-in-law. It used to be amazing place with really awesome stone walls, with wooden machines for everything. But nobody cares about it. So now it is almost whole down. Almost nothing left from old ages. When I asked my father-in-law about it he told me that there are some owners but they do not live close and they do not care. I think now it is impossible to save it and bring to life. This canvas will be one of the latest memory before whole building will be damaged by time.


for background I used Brusho: Leaf green, Dark Brown, Orange, Olive green

Memento Luxe inks: Olive grove, Tuxedo black, Dandelion

Finnabair mediums: Heavy gesso
