o l y a k r a v e t s
Hello, wonderful creatives! I was excited to create a project for this Art Recipe as I absolutely love the products we decided on this month! Also spring, for me, is always a new and inspiring time. With all the blooming around me I decided to dedicate my project to blossoms and flowers. This is the time when the color appears from the dark and monotonous.
I started my project by creating a composition of chipboard and metal elements. I covered Mechanicals Flowers with Texture Paper Paste to create a beautiful texture. For the chipboard and some of the metal elements, I used the color from the set Rust Paste - Metal Rust and I got a beautiful brown shade. I'm in love with the grains in these pastes They look amazing when you apply wax on them!
When the base was ready and everything dried up well, I took my favorite paints! I wanted to add a feeling of a blue sky and some bright tones to the project. I chose two colors: Romance Pink and Royal Blue.
For the final step, I chose Aged Brass Wax. Its velvet base beautifully highlights all the textures and gives your project an incredible shine!
Let your spring open up new opportunities and ideas for you! I wish you a lot of inspirations. :) ` Olya Kravets (Blog link: https://happiness-art.blogspot.co.uk/)

When I think spring, I immediately think of Easter. So for this Art Recipe I created for you some quick and easy to make Easter cards. I don't make cards very often but when I do, they are usually simple. I used a simple layout and very basic elements. I reached for natural embellishments such as pieces of wood and moss which helped me to create a lovely springtime vibe on my cards.
As you can see, Paper Texture Paste can be used in several ways. I like using it like gesso - thanks to its grainy surface it gives a very interesting effect. You should really try it out. You can also use it with a stencil, instead of a modeling paste - the pattern is not as smooth, it has a delicate texture.
The Rust Effect Pastes is also a great way to imitate such natural effects like moss. And the dark olive tone from the Camouflage set has the perfect color for that!
The Rust Effect Paste is also a great way to imitate such natural effects, like moss. I used artificial leaves and twigs here, but thanks to these pastes they look more natural and realistic. I love how all the cards turned out and I had a lot of fun making them. ` Kasia Bogatko (Blog Link: http://www.kasiabogatko.com/ )

I was so excited to play with all the new products from Finnabair in this special spring March Art Recipe. I'm totally in love with the new Paper Texture Paste! You can create so many varied and beautiful textures with this single product. Just have fun and experiment applying it on all kinds of surfaces! One of many gorgeous effects is when you combine Paper Paste with other texture pastes - the possibilites are truly endless...
I called my little collage/assemblage for this Art Recipe 'Young Spring'. This adorable little girls evokes for me the new exciting season, a little creature just woken up by the sun...To express the feeling of rays of sunshine and the nature awakening, I reached for lovely Art Alchemy Metallique paints in Golden Moss and Black Berry. Mica Powders in Bottle Green and Gold added some truly beautiful radiance and delicate sparkle to my creation.
And of course I couldn't do without my favorite Mechanicals metal elements that helped me make a blossoming flower and add some interesting accents.
Art Stones and Art Alchemy Waxes were my final touches that completed the look!~ Juliya Tirskaya (Blog link: http://vitaya-v-oblakah.blogspot.co.uk/ )
