Meeting Finnabair

May 13, 2019

Hi everyone! For a long time, I have wanted to meet Finnabair in person, and be able to learn from her directly. This weekend that dream came true! I took a class with her, named «colors of the past». It was really a nice project to work on, and she has a good way of teaching!  New things are always a little scary, and I thought I had ruined my project 4 times during the class. But then the next step in…

This year I made 10, and all of them was sold to one kind lady, and she even ordered 3 more! So here are all of…

It is a mixed media card, made for the weekly challenge in the pop-up lift challenge group I’m in:) I started by stamping some distress on to my glass surface from Tim Holtz and sprayed it with some water to get a watercolor look. I swiped the paper into the different puddles of color and dried with my heat tool. Then I found some background stamps I…

Angel in a tin

April 25, 2019

Hi friends! I admit it, I am totally in love with the Finnabair waxes! I paint everything I can find with black gesso, and then let the waxwork it’s magic. This time I had to ask my mom if she could be so kind as to eat her candy so I could have the tin. Hehe. And as you can see, she did. Thank you, mom! I used some casting moulds to create the angel and the rose inside the tin,…

Blue bulb-art

April 17, 2019

Mixed media is something I really like and one of my favourite brands is Finnabair. I recently bought new products and had to test them at once. I found an old lightbulb, some cast forms, some glue sticks and old scraps of embellishments. After some glueing, painting and waxing this was the result. I like how this one turned out, and I’m looking forward to giving this to someone that deserves it. If you want to learn how to make…
