September challenge


Autumn is just around the corner. A mixture of cold and warm colours in our this month moodboard reflects the cold outside and the warm inside our homes.


To join our challenge you can create any type of project you wish - ATC, layout, card, canvas, off the page project, collage, art-journal spread and more. Just please let yourself be inspired by our moodboard.


Inspiration from our Design Team:

Hello dears!
I absolutely love this wonderful mood-board! Especially The forest picture in teal and tangerine tones and the quote are really inspired me to create this mixed media canvas.



I started with applying a thick layer of modeling paste and stamped into the wet paste a few chipboard die cuts (leafs and brunches). Next I added more texture using Crackle effect paste and after drying I arranged all elements on the canvas. To color my project I used Art Alchemy Impasto paints (I'm in love with these paints!)

Hello everyone!
What a great challenge mood board!
I adore autumn and with great pleasure made a canvas for a new challenge.
Canvas that autumn leaves vivid memories and images.



In the background texture through the stencil 7Dots Studio.



Beautiful turquoise on lace and décor - the work of Lindys spray. Color Tibetian Poppy Teal.



Autumn memories, they are the same orange and bright as the leaves. They fly with ringing splashes, rustle in my memory. And wait for next year))

For this month challenge I have prepared an altered canvas bag. I have used Impasto Paints from Finnabair.

A few years ago I was enchanted by idea of Artist Trading Cards. It was 2010, when I have created my first ATC. The idea of exchanging cards with people from around the world was very exciting :) The dimensions of ATC are always 2.5x3.5'' (6,3x8,9cm). Since then I have collected 3 albums full of Artist Trading Cards designed by lots of different scrapbookers. If anybody would like to trade with me, please visit my FB fanpage and leave there a comment under a photo of the ATCs.

For this challenge I created a tag with wonderful Hazy Day collection from 7 Dots Studio that I love.
I made a texture using some Finnabair paste that I love with all my heart.



To add a bit of magic I used chipboard pieces and die-cut elements and also AZURE color paint.

A few droplets and the tag becomes magical.




Please take a look at short video below to see how I created the tag.
