Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint.

If you love shimmer and shine and all things that sparkle, you will love Prima Marketing Finnabair Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint.

Now you can have all the elements of glitter without the mess! This acrylic paint is unlike the others - with its beautiful shimmer and metallic shine, you won't believe the effects you will be able to achieve. Soft, creamy colors meet shine like no other. Great for artistic and decorative use and is permanent after drying.

First I tried it in my  mixed media book journal book and created simple circles with a stencil.  The paint is a little thinner than a regular acrylic, but a little goes a long way. It is great for dry brushing and adding details and emphasis to certain areas. And it does live up to its name, it does sparkle, although the photo here doesn't do it justice.

Next I tried on canvas and while this is still a work in progress  you can see the affect of the Sparks Paint.

Next I did some colour swatches - the colour looks great on white cardstock! I have made one set with a base of white Ghesso and another set without, just to see the difference.  What was left on the brush between painting the swatches I dabbed on a tag. Now you can see the shimmer in these two tags.

So thats about it... I truly love these paints....I do hope they Prima release more colours.  If you want to visit them in the store then just click on the link.

Layout Share!

Layout share tonight. 
This one of our toothless Mason I started last month at our Friday Craft Collective Nights.  Just finished today....Mason had lost his two front teeth a nd we were waiting months and months for the new teeth to come through. Finally after about a year, I think we finally saw his new teeth coming through!!

I love his cheeky grin!! Especially without the teeth..

Stampenous Stamp Set - Bullet Journalling

Note-taking and traditional journaling, planners - sometimes they a take up alot of time; the more complex the planner, the more effort is required to maintain it.  Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of people out there doing a wonderful job with their planners and are very committed to keeping them up to date. 

But I find the more effort expended, the more of a chore it becomes, and to tell the truth my planner lately has taken a backseat.  This is why I'm going to give the bullet journal a go! If you haven't heard of bullet journalling then
here on this web page, which I found gave a really good explanation of how it all works. 

I have a come across a cute stamp set that is designed specifically for bullet journaling, which will be available in the store soon here.. Let me know what you think?

Fabe Castell Ice Layers

The essential tools and accents to complete your mixed media projects!                                            

These are like stencils, but with a sticky adhesive back, so you stick them down and just grab your gelatos, paint, texture accents and away you go.  You can even create resist effects Utilise the entire sheet or cut into pieces for dynamic compositions.  I think you could also give them a clean afterwards depending on the design.
We have ordered the complete range and you can see them right here in the store, along with the new Faber Castell Colour Fizz.
