"Time consumes the core of things" - TaavaNaisen työhuone, Helsinki lauantai 10.2.2018 klo 10-13

Mieti olevasi arkeologi. Mitä löytäisitkään hautautuneena maahan tai meren syvyyksiin? Miten aika olisi muuntanut esineitä ja lisänyt niihin patinaa? Tällä kurssilla tehdään assemblaasi ja käsitellään se ruosteiseksi ja ajan puraisemaksi. 

Kurssin hinta on 32 € / hlö, johon sisältyy käytettävät materiaalit. Kurssimaksu tulee maksaa etukäteen.

Kurssille voi ilmoittautua osoitteeseen rkovasin (at) gmail.com. Mukaan mahtuu maksimissaan 10 henkeä. Ilmoittautuminen on sitova ja perutusta kurssipaikasta peritään maksu.

"Far beyond the sea and distant lands" - TaavaNaisen työhuone, Helsinki lauantai 10.2.2018 klo 14-17

ATC-kortit voivat olla pieniä kooltaan, mutta niiden tekeminen on hurjan hauskaa! Kun sekoitetaan kohojauheita, muotteja, vesivärejä ja Art Stones -tekstuurikiviä saadaan uniikkeja taideteoksia, jossa on merellinen teema.

Cards for Tape Carden, take 2

Hey Pals! How are you on this Monday? Yesterday I shared a layout for Wow Embossing which was done light and easy. These cards which I had made even earlier for Tape Garden follow the same idea. 

They use a lot of materials available from Tape Garden, but they are really easy to make. Just some watercolor and ink to the background and then layering washi tapes and stickers on top! If you have attended to crafty events where Tape Garden (Teippitarha) has been this year, you've might have seen these as I made them for samples for them. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great start to the week!

Light - Wow Embossing Powder

Sweet Sunday to you all! It's the middle of the winter and I'm sharing a layout with flowers with you... maybe a bit off the season, but the inspiration for the blooms came from the cute bear stamp by Pink and Main which I used as an embellishment in my page for Wow Embossing Powder (link). And maybe it's good to think about the summer, blooms and warm weather when it's dark and gloomy outside! 

The page is about light, more specifically light at the end of the tunnel. It's quite the same with winter, in a way. Through the rough patch and into the light! And as it's almost Holiday season, I didn't want to do and show anything too heavy or hard, just something light and nice to do between chores of getting ready for Christmas!

As always, I took photos along the way when working with the layout. If you wish to see how the page came together, please visit the Wow blog (link) where there is a step by step tutorial! Not many steps, keeping it all light before the Holidays! 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a lovely start to the new week! Only a week to go to Christmas Eve!

Create Magic - Craft Stamper

Under 10 days to Christmas! And weekend is coming! I'm hoping for some creative time but there's some prep work for the Holidays, too. 

Today I'm sharing something that was published in the May 2017 issue of Craft Stamper magazine. The article it belongs to was about using alternative materials. The step by step part was about making the clay embellishments and I was pondering about using something other than paper in the project. This journal is done with felt, cotton fabrics and cheese cloth. On top of the clay embellishments I used some old buttons to decorate the cover.

I really liked to make the project and how it turned out! Maybe I need to play with fabrics more in the coming year! 

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great start to the weekend!

Oh snap! - Wow Embossing / Pink and Main

Oh snap! I saw a wonderful old camera shaped box this summer while we visited London with the family, but didn't buy it after all as I'm trying to hunt a real thing, a real old camera. But boy, it would have looked good in this picture! Silly of me not to buy it after all! Oh well, it goes to the list of things I regret not buying when I saw them...

But back to the actual things that ARE in the photo - some cards I did for Wow Embossing Powder using Pink and Main stamps. 

Above you can maybe see the idea of the cards better. I used different embossing powders to make a kind of paint splash and then added the stamped camera on top. Both the camera and the greeting are stamped with embossing ink and embossed with black powder. The camera is colored using watercolors. 

In the card underneath I used the same idea, but did it a bit differently. Instead of doing a separate "paint" piece, I embossed the powders straight to the background creating this painty, monoprinted look. The camera is then stamped with Archival Ink and colored here and there using white Sharpie.

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great Wednesday!

Gel medium brush - Craft Stamper

Hello there! Yesterday I shared an altered palette that was done for a Masterclass article in Craft Stamper magazine. In that post I mentioned that I had done an altered brush, too. So today I'm sharing the brush! 

I've used the same techniques with this as in the palette and the color scheme is the same. As the projects were a part of July issue, I though warm, summery colors were in order.

If you have a copy of the issue and have read the article, I would love to hear what you thought about it! Thank you for your visit today! Have a painty day!

Blooming palette - Craft Stamper

Hiya people! Another week has started and Christmas just draws closer and closer. There's still time to make some handmade gifts, so if you wish to make something like this, you still can! This piece was published in the July 2017 issue of Craft Stamper. It was a part of Masterclass article showing five techniques using gel medium. I shall share the other project I did for the article tomorrow. The projects have a common theme - the other one is this altered painter's palette and the other one is an altered brush. You can familiarize yourself to the magazine here (link).

I can't tell much about this project as it's published piece, but what I can say is that I really enjoyed making both this and the brush. Gel medium is one of my favorite mediums and it's so versatile! I also love the shape of a painter's palette. It's curvy and oval-like, but not totally. And the best part is the hole for the thumb as it makes a wonderful detail.

Talking about publications, underneath is the cover of the newest issue of Mixed Up magazine. I'm honored to tell that the little birdie on the bottom left corner is a detail of my project! Yay! You can see more about the magazine here (link)

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great start to the week!
