"Shine Brightly" Hanna Mixed Media Panel playing at Finnabair's blog!

Hello dear friends, 
How very nice of you to visit my blog, today I'd show you a mixed media panel. I made this project in honour of "Hanna Nicole Hale" my cousin her youngest daugther, who left this beautiful earth to be with god and the angels on July 23rd. I think to be creative in any way is very healing to the soul at least it is for me. It's totally out of my comfort zone to make something like this because most of you know my passion is with layout's & cards. But it was very theraputic and I really like how it tuned out. 

Shine Brightly Hanna:
For this project I used a whole bunch of "Finnabair"products. First I added heavy white gesso on the background then I added a stencil to later on treat the background with a couple of Lindy's spray's & some Artisan Powder "Paris Rose"
I also used some fussy cut flowers from the Miles Apart collection by Maja Design all the words texts are from Tim Holtz. I would love it if Anna would make something like that one day ;-) Al the flowers are by Prima Marketing 
If you look closely you see two greek numbers, two times eleven that was her age {22} and you see a four that is the age of her son. So you see this was made from the heart and I can tell you I shed a tear while making this.

Finnabair Products used:

The coloursdelicate green, dusty pink, light peach

I have used waxes & a stencil.

Thank you so much for your visit and I would like to wish you a wonderful, happy & creative day!

Never Give Up, Life is Beautiful Card Playing at ***Finnabair July 2021 Art Recipe***!

Goodmorning my lovely friends,  
Today I'd like to share a card with you all. I made this card for this months "Art Recipe" at the Finnabair blog. Which is very appealing to the eye at least that is what I think. The phrase I have used here speaks so much to me because on the 23rd of July we have lost a family member {My cousin's daughter at the age of 22} Hanna leaves behind a handsome 4 year old boy & husband. It sadness me the way she died, of a overdose that's why I used that phrase.

"Never Give Up"
"Live Is Beautiful"

For this card I used some gorgeous Maja Design papers from the "Denim and Girls" collection. The amazing chipboard pieces here ar by the wonderful "Renea Bouquets" I have treated those chippies with some Rust Paste, waxes & peach paint.

The big peach coloured flower is a older one by Prima Marketing and the rest of the flowers are by 49 and Market. I also used my favorite stencil on this card called "Dandelions" and I used some two different moulds.

Lets have a look at the pretty art recipe:

Products to choose from:
