Polish Mixed Media I Part

Welcome to my place! Have you got any fave mixed media brands? No doubt, you have your evergreens. Now, let me mention two Polish mixed media manufacturers whose products are available at Retro Kraft Shop.

I´ve been using these a lot when creating. The first one is 13@rts. If you´re a mixed media addict, you must have heard about the company. They´ve been on the market for several years by now. They offer a huge range of mixed media goodies. For paper lovers there are gorgeous paper collections to choose from. They come in cool designs  and  the paper weight is perfect for loads of media to be applied on.

Besides the papers and stencils you can buy various kinds of media. Paints, pastes, gesso, mica flakes, pigment powders and much more. Prices are reasonable for anyone to try. 

Embellishment lovers may choose from a wide range of pearls, stones, pebbles, beads and flowers. They come in lots of colours and shapes.

Here you can see the 13@rts project that I made as a guest designer.

 Next time we´ll have a look on another mixed media brand available at RKS.

For more 13@rts products drop in Retro Kraft Shop.

Happy crafting!

Holiday Spirit

Welcome! Today it´s my turn to get your creative juices flowing. So here I am with no art journaling this time. What I made is this whimsical Xmas tag. Just playing with lots of materials and texture. In fact, just using up the bits and pieces found on the corner of my craft table.

By The Light Of The Moon

Welcome! It´s Denisa here with some pinkish and reddish art journaling. Can you feel the magic of the night? This time my spread was inspired by the gorgeous song by Enya.

When the stars are in the skies,
Make a wish then close your eyes.
Are you dreaming,
Angels singing,
Everything is right.
It's the magic of the night.

Far horizons made of snow,
Bring the hopes each child will know.
Someone's dreaming,
Bells are ringing,
Everything is white.
It's the magic of the night.

Good Girl Gone Bad

Welcome! Ready for some grungy art journaling? Here, it is. I´ve been playing with the texture. Just a few layers. Renesans Gesso, gauze and gesso again. No need to add the glue. When  applying some liquid paints, you´ll end up with gorgeous patterns. It´s definitely worth trying.

As you can see there are some areas not being covered with the gauze. The reason is simple. I needed some flat space for easy stamping. I used awesome designs from Carabelle Studio.

Top Products from Retro Kraft Shop

Welcome! Today I´d like to reveal my fave  Retro Kraft Shop goodies which I often use when creating a project. 

As you can see in the picture I may start call myself a Tim Holtzholic :). Although there are some Holtz´s products which I would never use, these are my evergreens. The reason is quite simple. They´re neutral and versatile. In fact, you can use them on any type of projects.

Moreover, you may have noticed the colour scheme - just black and white. They´re super helpful to get some needed contrast to your masterpiece.

Another advantage of using these is the super fast way to use them. All you have to do is just to glue them down. They do not need any further modification. Simply, they´re perfect as they are.

As some of you may know I tend to include some kind of message into my art, especially when it comes to my art journaling. I do not have to print the words I need, I just run through my TH stash and I´m done. Pretty comfortable, isn´t it?!

Now let me list each of the top five:

Much more new Tim Holtz´s products are available in Retro Kraft Shop. Do not forget to check it out here.
