Mixed Media Canvas

Hello dear friends!
Today we are celebrating all things Finnabair.
 I have created a Mixed Media canvas featuring
 lots of my favorite Finn products. I have 
painted my canvas with Impasto paint in color
 Mediterranean. Next I added texture
 with paper texture paste over the tapestry
 stencil. I then mixed some Impasto paint
 Lemon Peel with white crackle texture
 paste and applied this randomly to the
 background. I then randomly stamped some 
wording featuring the carte postale stamp. 
Next I added a photo from the 'Words you need' 
sticker book. I layered the photo onto 
some chipboard pieces which have been 
painted with Finn's metallique paints and waxes.
 I adorned my photo cluster with a tree branch, 
some moulded embellishments, 
wool and pretty Prima flowers.

Thanks for stopping by! 

Happy Papercrafting!

Graphic 45 
Fashion Forward
Any Year Calendar 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a Calendar featuring the
 STUNNING Fashion Forward Collection.
 These papers are absolutely gorgeous!
 Love, love love the colours!! 

I love this collection so much I
have decided to make it a any year
calendar. I created pockets, easy to
just add a printed 12 month
calendar sheet of the new year,
every year. 

I have created this Calendar with 
my Zutter bind-it-all machine, a metal
 stand and some cutting dies.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies used:
Zutter Bind-it-all Machine
Zutter Display-it-all Stand
Zutter Binding Wire Black
Square and Rectangle Cutting Dies (optional)
Double Sided Tape
Calendar (printed)

Pattern sheets in the 8x8 and patterns
 & solid paper pad:
Cut all the pieces with the months and the 
images of the ladies with some square and 
rectangle dies. Cut a small rectangle from 
the pattern sheets which will be used 
as a pocket. 
Chipboard and pattern sheets:
Cut a square shape from the black chipboard 
and one from the pattern sheets. Adhere
 the pattern sheet to the back of the 
chipboard piece.

Use a calendar (printed) and cut out
 the months with a cutting die (optional).

Cut some more square shapes with
 the dies and layer them on the front cover
 of the calendar. Choose some die-cut
 assortment and chipboard pieces
 to be used as embellishments.

Use a Zutter bind-it-all machine
 to make the holes in the pages. 
Bind them with the binding wire.

Add the calendar booklet to 
the metal stand.

Decorate the bottom section of
 the stand with papers,ephemera 
and die-cut assortment pieces.

Layer the embellishments 
on the cover.

Dusty Attic 
Moodboard Inspiration 

Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
We have a bright and colourful mood board
 for this month.Love the colours! Here
is my take on the Jan challenge.

Inspired by the these bright and beautiful
 colours, I created a Layout on watercolor 
paper featuring lots of lovely Dusty Attic 
chipboard. I used the fabulous Graphic 45 
collection Fashion Forward. Some of the 
chipboard pieces in this Layout have been 
heat embossed and others have been painted 
with Finnabair metallique and impasto paints. 
I layered my photo on to lots of die-cuts 
and adorned it with gorgeous Prima Flowers.
