For this event, I chose to share a project where I'm showing how to build a multi layer background, by combining different types of pastes. The result is urban grunge and I incorporated into it a holiday flair, by putting warm fairy lights into the bulbs.

Winter Fairies Hop with Fabrika Decoru

Hello my dear friends!

I’m so happy to be back to share with you some crafty news after such a long time.

Today starts the Winter Fairies YouTube Hop.

A beautiful collaboration of 12 artists from all over the world, sponsored by Fabrika Decoru, a Ukrainian company that produces a wide variety of craft supplies.

In this amazing event, 12 artists are sharing winter and christmas themed projects with process videos. You’ll have the opportunity to see many different techniques on how to use mixed media supplies in order to alter an object and make it beautiful but also keep it functional!

For this hop I chose to alter a house shaped shadow box and make it look like a christmas decorated home!

Start your hop here:

What's fun about this project is that you can make your own and decorate all those little frames with photos of your loved ones. In the boxes you can also put some memorabilia that have a sentimental value for you and your family.

A great decor piece for the holidays where you can keep some beautiful family memories!

Follow us and you’ll get lots of ideas and inspiration for your creations!
