Grunge is a style, which is, in my opinion, the essence of creative fun and freedom: you can put almost everything on your project and be happy with the effect you got. You may give as much or as little elements as you want, you may use Mediums and inks… Grunge is usually considered as "boyish" or "men" style, but I'd like to convince you that it also as the more feminine, crazy, eclectic side – let's call it "industrial baroque". During classes I will try to convince you that creating a grungy, eclectic layout is not hard at all - and the only boundaries you have are those made by your imagination! I will make you look again at your embellishments and how you possibilities of using everyday objects as a part of your composition, giving them the uniqueness, personal touch and grungy style. I will show you finished projects and share my experiences from the creative process. On each class I will create with the students a full size layout including products from well known manufacturers and demonstrate possibilities of mixing different Mediums, scrapbooking supplies and found objects to get baroque look of your project. "Industrial Baroque" is a perfect combination of fun, experiment and playing with composition, colour and texture. "Tea for 2" Paper based mixed media class with layering, stamping, sprays, tea stain and a touch of metallic paint together with a wide selection of inspiring embellishments which will provide a bit lighter, but very "vintage" look in the project.

- Mixed-media shadowbox class with lots of techniques including gel mediums, inks, paint and more! Great fun with found objects and pure creativity. We are surrounded by inspiring objects: at work or at home, in the city and in the countryside – there are things which are usually not visible for us…they are too common, too plain to be noticed. But try to look around, open your eyes wider – I’m sure you’ll find real treasures all around you, and all of them have their own stories which want to be told! Take a second look in the drawer, check your attic, search through the wardrobe…or visit the flea market – the possibilities are endless and your creativity will amaze you – just give the chance to yourself and the little everyday treasures from your neighbourhood. There are no boundaries in creating mixed media projects: you may give as much or as little elements as you want, you may use Mediums, paint and inks…and whatever comes to your mind too! Don’t be afraid to mix and blend and let your imagination free – it is pure fun! During this workshop I’ll try to convince you that beauty can be found everywhere – and it is waiting to be discovered. I’ll guide you to create your own mixed-media shadowbox, based on my favourite layering techniques and choice of embellishments, coloured with a wide range of colour products including pigments and acrylic paints. I’ll demonstrate possibilities of mixing different mediums like gel mediums, paint, ink, scrapbooking supplies and found objects to get interesting layers and details on the unique grungy project.

This paper layout is based on mixed media and scrapbooking techniques: multi-layering, using a wide range of mediums and loads of elements to create one-of-a kind, personalised project. Industrial Baroque is time for making your fingers dirty, creativity flowing and pushing the boundaries of your imagination. Grunge is a style, which is, in my opinion, the essence of creative fun and freedom: you can put almost everything on your project and be happy with the effect you got.

"Steampunk Love" is based on masking and layering, spraying, gel mediums, acrylic and metallic paints and pastes together with hard, grungy and steampunk elements in a good company of lace and flowers - that's how you get the unique, "heavy" look!




Sun 10/3/2013       9am - 1pm
Have you ever thought about having your own, intimate space which will be just for you – without pressure, without fear and competition? Maybe you feel you want to have more fun, to try new things and play with techniques... or you need a place for your personal notes, sketches, and memos? Or maybe you are an idea collector? All this and more you can put in your Art Journal! How cool is this? Journals are best friends of creative people: they love experiments and new techniques, they are good listeners and always have time for you. You can take them wherever you go. Journals are never in bad mood – and they never say that your project is not good enough or not creative. Working in journal is fun, easy... and liberating. There are no strict rules, no boundaries, just freedom. All the meanings and the ideas are taken straight from the heart: you can realise all the crazy plans simply because it is YOUR Journal and you create just for yourself. During this class I'll tell you about my ideas for journaling, and share my ideas how to personalise and alter a journal to match tour taste and expectations – using paper scraps, envelopes, and old book pages – all you can think of! Together we'll make a unique, mixed media cover based on a bunch of my favourite techniques such as creating texture with gels, embellishments and found objects, painting and spraying. I'll share my experience in creating a grungy-looking, rich in texture project which not only will be a true eye-candy but also will survive long travels and using day-by day. I'll show you different effect you can get using media such as pigments, acrylic paint and common soft pencils together with multipurpose glues or varnish. After the class you will have your own, personal art journal which will reflect your taste and personality and t a big dose of inspiration: I'll do my best to share my experience, give tips and I'll try to convince you to leave traditional, conventional thinking and go bolder and artsy. It is possible you will be surprised what you can do with mediums and tools which you already have in your kit or at home! During the class we will work both with products from top scrapbooking and mixed-media brands and common household objects.

Wow! Don't they all sound amazing!!!!!  You can also learn more a Finnabair from her blog here and see her gallery here .
