In the Garden of Zeus and Zoe

Hello Arty Souls!

As you know I have a flower addiction recently:) And I also discover beautiful online shop Zeus and Zoe, where you can buy beautiful handmade flowers for all kinds of craft projects:)
I love using handmade elements in my projects as they really give them more soulful meaning:) And also I have to say the owner of this shops- Marivic is such a warm and kind person that it is a pleasure to shop there:)

All the beautiful papers I used for these projects are from 7dots studio owned by very creative little soul Tusia:)
 One of my favourite papers to work with. I will be a guest designer on the blog 7 dots studio in September. I prepared three projects  for them so stay tuned!!!

And those are the vouches which I prepared for Spa Hairstudio in Claregalway
They do my hair for over 2 years!!! I highly recommend them:)))

From my art journal...

Hey Art Soul

I am still in a vintage mood and I decided to let it out in my art journal:) This page is simply made of cardboard, lace, music sheet, some chipboard, cheese cloth and clay heart :) Just Simple ...Be...

Clay heart with cheesecloth wings...

Lace, cardboard and vintage pattern paper...

Stamping and doodling (stamp from 7dotsstudio - cold country collection))

And this one is also vintage, and in my favourite  combination of turquoise and brown... I used Tom Holtz paper, ScrapFX chipboard some stamps, inks and ephemera...

I hope you enjoed it!



Be Still- vintage journal page

Hello Art Souls,

I found vintage music sheet in a flea market and I think they are just magical for art journalling :)

This page I made in 15 min. Just spread paint loosely...


Quick sketchy girl, who tried to stop and be still for a moment...

Some doodles...

I hope you enjoyed it!

Doilies and denim- my future wedding dress ;)

Hello Arty Souls!

Recently I got inspired by creative Marta (Maremi's Small Art) who made a video tutorial how to make a paper mache dress and convert it into mixed media art piece on canvas. I love Marta and her amazing talent!!!
Make sure that you will visit her blog

So I decided to put a little twist on the project, because there is many artists who like making art pieces using the dress idea but important  is to got inspired  and try to make it in your own style:) And because I am a denim girl, I decided to combine this material (bye bye too small jeans) with my beloved vintage laces and doilies. I also design the background using vintage music notes, vintage dress pattern, inks and stamps

Now I have to find someone who will make this dress in my size:P
 I am serious!!! If I ever get married, that will be my wedding dress!!! 

This project will take part in Rhedd's Creative Spirit An Altered Art Challenge Blog - August Challenge

Altered brush- first project as a part of DT in Craft for the Craic

Hey Arty Souls!!!!

Great News!!!  I am thrilled to announce that I have joined very creative DT in Craft for the Craic challenge blog:) Which means that every month I will be making a project according to the theme. So I hope you will get inspired by our projects and you will join the challenge.

August Challenge #7 - A Craft Item you have never used before

I decided to alter old big brush, which I never used before. It was just sitting in my art room. This time it will be used as a painting surface. I just put gesso all over it and it was ready for painting. I couldn't resist and I painted one of my little fairies on it :)

I hope you got inspired:)
