What says “Spring” better than butterflies and bees! The two wonderful projects featured here are using these iconic design elements to bring that fresh feeling right indoors. The sunny yellow of this mug would add such a bright spot to a shelf or open cupboard. Anastasija’s tags, with her fussy cut butterflies and flowers, would be an impressive addition to a gift bag or art journal. We are always amazed at the great talent our Design Members have!
“I created this cute Bee Mason Jar Mug featuring some amazing Finnabair products. First I cut a bee shape from my Silhouette machine and a honeycomb shape from a cutting die using black vinyl. I then stuck the shapes on the front of the jar placing them in the position I wanted. Next I painted the jar with Finns’s black gesso, (tip: rub a candle lightly on the jar highlighting some areas, this will help easily remove some of the paint when sanding). I mixed some white gesso and lemon peel impasto paint and painted a layer of this mixture over the black gesso. Once the jar was dry I carefully removed the vinyl stickers. Next I lightly sanded the surface and the edges with a sanding block to make some of the black pop. I die-cut some circle and hexagon shapes from the Fruit Paradise collection and added them on top of the lid. I adorned the rest of the jar with fussy-cut bees, twine, metal embellishments and gorgeous Prima flowers!” – Tanya

Hi, creative friends! I love the spring, because the nature finally wakes up. Inspired by this fact I’ve created two mixed media tags, using a beautiful paper collection “Pretty Mosaic” and Finnabair products. To create an interesting texture on the background I applied 3D Gloss gel through the stencil” Laurels” and used the stamp “Honeycombs”. In order to make the work more volumetric I added some Prima flowers, chipboards and paper elements. As the main accent I put into frame “Artdaily” cards with phrases. Finally, I covered the surfaces with a glass beads and glitter. Hope you will like my project!
