"Cozy Memories" by Evgeniya Vlasenko

Всем привет!
Сегодня с вами я, Евгения Власенко, и на этот раз пришла вам показать страничку на нашу сентябрьскую доску вдохновения.

На страничку меня вдохновили в первую очередь книги, они у меня вызвали ассоциацию с фотографиями нашей семьи, потому что в фотостудии были большие стеллажи с книгами, и вся атмосфера вспомнилась мне, когда я увидела доску вдохновения. И потому страничка сложилась такой, каким я ощущала тот момент.

Для фона я использовала текстурную пасту и кракелюрную пасту, затем штампы , далее алкогольные чернила, идею цветов алкогольных чернил я взяла с фотографии с мотыльками. Для еще большего ассоциации с доской вдохновения и моего понимания того дня, я добавила книжные листы.

Fell by Ruth Bernal

Hello dears!
Ruth Bernal is here,
 I'm very happy to be with you as a member of Mixed Media & Art DT.

So today, contradictory feelings, 
because I feel very nervous and excited at the same time 
with the presentation of my first project with all of you, ladies, 
I hope you are inspired and enjoy as much as I do with our September challenge!


Here is the Moodboard "Journey" - September


"FELL"
The autumnal environment has captured the scrapers and I am no exception
 I loved the old feeling and the natural elements so that they are part of the design.

 The project turned out to be different, 
with many small details and more decorative things.  
I used the colors of the board, the texture and the volume to create my design.

Autumn Journey by Julia Kissel

Приветствую, дорогие друзья!
Задание сентября c  великолепной доской в блоге Mixed Media & Art радуют и вызывают желание творить! Дрова, пазлы, сухой цветок на картинке и общая палитра вдохновили меня на создание холста. Основа - кусок старой деревянной черепицы. Стащила её на даче, когда разбирали старый сарай)

Hi dear friends! 
September challenge - Journey
September challenge is with a magical moodboard
on the Mixed Media & Art blog is encouraging and makes you want to create! The firewood, puzzles, dry flower in the picture and a common palette inspired me to create  the canvas. The base is a piece of old wooden tile. Took it at the countryside, when dismantled an old barn)


Картинка мальчика с букетом цветов, сухоцветы, камешки, пазлы...
Фон сделала с помощьью грунта и magical shaker от Lindy's
и получилась осенняя палитра...

The boy's pic with flowers, dried flowers, pebbles, puzzles ...
Background made using the Lindy's magical shaker and white gesso,
and it turned out an Autumn pallette ...

Не представляю свою жизнь без путешествий и поездок. И не важно настоящие это путешествия или те, которые дарят книги.

I can't imagine my life without travels. It doesn't matter if it’s real travels or those  we make when we read books.

September Moodboard ''Journey'' by Irina Tsigir

Hello all you lovely Mixed Media & Art’s friends! 
Irina Tsigir here and I’m so excited to be with you as Mixed Media & Art DT member. Such a stunning moodboard inspired me to create a box that looks like an aged book. 

Привет всем прекрасным друзьям Mixed Media & Art!
Меня зовут Ирина Чигирь и я рада быть с вами как член замечательной команды Mixed Media & Art. Потрясающая доска вдохновила меня на создания коробочки в виде состаренной книжки. 


This box can be used as a repository for memories from a journey, because our September inspiration board is about them.

Эту коробочку можно использовать как хранилище для воспоминаний из поездки. На мой взгляд, ведь именно о них наша сентябрьская доска вдохновения.

Trust in yourself | Anna Wiśniewska

Hello everyone!
It's Anna Wiśniewska with you today,
presentingt my project inspired by our
Autumn September Moodboard.
It's a vintage, nostalgic card.


Here is the Moodboard "Journey".
So calm and nostalgic, isn't it?


And some details of my card:



'I Heard You Singing' by Lisa Griffith

Hello Mixed Media & Art friends!
Lisa here to share my project for September.
I loved the ancient feel of the mood board, and it sent ideas swirling in my head.

'I Heard You Singing'

 

I love vintage styled art, it melts my heart to work with time worn antique style elements.
I started with some old sheet music and added lots of Lindy's Stamp Gang
mists, stamping, an old baroque style frame and lots of flowers.

Here is the mood board for this month:


 Here are a few close ups:


I added some stenciling with a Prima stencil and some gloss gel, 
then I rubbed some Prima gold metallic paint to bring out the textures.

September Moodboard "Life Journey" by Aleksandra Mihelič

Hi dear friends of  Mixed Media & Art blog!
I'm so so happy and excited to be here with you, for the first time as DT member. I'm very honoured to have been given this chance. I love this blog and I'm always inspired and pushed over my creative and imagination boundaries with their fabulous Moodboards. This month's Moodboard was no exception. From the first minute I saw it, I knew what I'll be making. I've had this idea about a Sundial - a sun clock in my mind for some time now, but without the final vision how to make it happen. With this moodboard it all became clear.


I've altered a Graphic 45 mixed media box and attached it to a big piece of puzzle, that my kids weren't playing with anymore. I also added few more smaller puzzles on my box, to give it more interest and texture. I created a Sundial on top with chipboards.


After I glued down the puzzle pieces on my box, I covered it with two coats of white gesso. After that I added some sand texture paste on some parts of the box. When dry, I dry-brushed it just lightly with a bit of a black gesso. Then I colored it with brown and gold sprays. On top I added a bit of a Finnabair Opal Magic color for more gold effect. 

The base big puzzle piece was colored only in gold with Finnabair gold sparke paint on top. 

After that I built the upper part with a sundial from chipboard pieces. I dry brushed it with white gesso on some parts, added some gold glass glitter and some white glitter and few splashes of white paint.

September Inspiration by Marie Johansson

Hi Crafty Souls!
Marie here today with my inspiration piece for the September Moodboard. I was inspiered by the books & the fantastic colors in this moodboard and decided to create a bookmark. For me fall is equal to reading - one of my favorite things is to sit on the front poach under a blanket, with a book and a good cup of coffee in my hands.


I tried to capture the mix of golden, bronze and browns when creating the bookmark. The black chalkstock bookmark from Canvas Corp was perfect as base. I added texture with a AB Studio stencil and modeling paste before blending different shades of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.


The leaf turned out lovely! I cut it from a piece of cardboard using a stencil from AB Studio to get the shape. I painted it golden with Tattered Angels High Impact Paints in 3 cotes - if you look closely you can see that I used purple & gold. Layer 1 was gold, 2 purple and 3 gold again.

September Moodboard ''Journey'' by Mary Catt

Hello dears!
Mary Catt is with you today with my very first post as a member of this amazingly talented team. I'm so excited and I hope I'll give you some inspiration with my work! 


Olya's moodboards are my most favorites! Truly inspirational with amazing sketches, textures and colors...  When I saw September's board I wanted to create an altered project. Don't know why cause it's not my usual style but I knew I had to give it a try. So I altered a frame... hope you'll like it...


 I got my inspiration from the color palette, the textures and the elements. I tried to follow the sketch and I used the word Journey as my title too.

September layout "Charm" by Svetlana Lipnitskaya

Hello dears!
Autumn mood has captured the scrapers and I am no exception. So today I am with you, Svetlana Lipnitskaya and my new layout "Charm". The layout turned out to be vintage, with a lot of shiny details and decorative things. In the photo my sister, a fashionista and beauty, we are often told that we are very similar in appearance))
The basis of 7Dots paper, but the small crop and cut elements from the vintage collection Primamarketing.

Всем привет!
Осеннее настроение уже завладело скраперами и я не исключение. Поэтому с Вами сегодня я, Светлана Липницкая и моя новая страничка "Charm". Страничка получилась винтажной, с большим количеством блестящих деталей и декоративных штучек. На фотографии моя родная сестра, модница и красавица, нам часто говорят, что мы очень похожи внешне))
В основе бумага 7Dots, но мелкие обрезки и вырезанные элементы из старинной коллекции Primamarketing. 


By the way, the background chipboard was cut into several parts and covered with micro beads. It turned out very beautiful.

Кстати, фоновый чипборд разрезала на несколько частей и покрыла микробисером. Получилось очень красиво.



September mood board by Magdalena

Hello Mixed Media & Art enthusiasts!
Magdalena here, with my first project as a member of this fabulous, creative team. I am super excited to be here and I can promise you guys, that I will do my best to keep you inspired during coming months.


Olya's mood boards are one of a kind: always beautiful, dreamy and truly inspirational. Please do join in the September challenge here.


I have chosen to alter an oval picture frame and as you can see on pictures, I have used a lot of embellishments. I have tried to refer to the concept of time travel, using a chipboard clock face and some gears, but my main focus was on keeping this project as feminine and dreamy as possible. This is why I've used some butterflies, flowers, metal doilies and leaves. I did some stamping and used a few Lindy's colours on the background. The frame itself and most of the embellishments were painted with black gesso and coloured with Alchemy waxes by Finnabair.
