Folk Birds and Journal Giveaway - Finnabair Creative Team

It is time for my last project for the Creative Team. It was a wonderful time and a splendid experience for me. I’m so glad to have spend this magical era at Finanbair’s court with such merry and bright companions, sitting around a well set mixed media table...
We shared our art secrets, inspirations and a pure joy of creating. How lucky I’m to have such beautiful memories to be cherished!
As my farewell post I'd like to present Folk Birds - my alteration of an ordinary metal tin turned into a folky style container.

I started with taking off a label from a tin and cleaning it thoroughly.
Then I glued pages from vintage dictonaries around the tin using Soft Gloss Gel. Don't try to do it too precisely, a bit of imperfection here and there may only add some artistic value to your work.
When the papers dried, I put a transparent and uneven coat of White Gesso mixed with the blue Metallique Art Alchemy paint. Again - not worrying about doing it too perfectly.
I decorated the lid with similar vintage papers and attached a Mechanical cog.

I cut out and painted two birdy silhouettes and painted them with Art Alchemy acrylics.
The birds were glued down along with a metal Tin Heart to the center of the tin.
I doodled a bit and traced their shapes with a black pen and acrylics.

A round Art Pebble with a piece of vintage paper glued down underneath, was attached to the Mechanical centerpiece on the lid.
To make my tin more textural, I added a pinch of Mini Art Stones onto chosen areas.

I stamped a few vintage patterns around the focal element. Then I added highlights with delicate brush strokes of Mica Powders. They stuck perfectly to the previously painted elements.

Before I say goodbye, I'd like to celebrate my great time spent with Finnabair Creative Team with a gift for you, dear readers. :) I'm giving away a small part of my creative journey that I’m so grateful for.

If you would like to grab this Denim Journal of mine, please leave your comment below this post from 10th to 20th of October.

Have a cosy and relaxing evening!
