March's Art Recipe

We’re sneaking our March Art Recipe in with a FUN new twist! Let’s have Finnabair, herself, introduce it and give you the details!


“Hello, Friends!


“Today we have for you a kind of surprise :) We know, that you have loved our Art Recipe series published originally on Prima Marketing blog. You have always found it inspiring and interesting. So we thought, that you might be happy if we turn our monthly inspiration into regular monthly challenge available on our blog :) And today we have the very first Art Recipe challenge! Isn't it exciting?! Yay!!!” ~ Finnabair


The rules are very simple. Each challenge consists of colour palette and products. You need to stick to the colour pallete and use all products listed in a challenge.

  • Art Basics: Clear Gesso

  • Art Alchemy - Metallique Waxes

  • Art Ingredients - Mini Art Stones

  • Art Extravagance - Icing Paste 



“Hello, dear friends! I am incredibly glad to take part in this art recipe. And discover a new adventure for you! I made a canvas with dried flowers. Have you wondered where and how to apply Clear Gesso? I decided to try to cover them with dry flowers. And my experiment was a success!” ~ Juliya Tirskaya


In the background I added Icing paste through a stencil. A sprinkled also some mini Art Stones, but then they disappeared in the shimmer of glitter)) And in the end I added a bit of wax. Mmm, how I love these final touches!

“I'm so happy and excited that Art Recipes are turning into challenges! When I was not yet part of this amazing Creative team I used to do "oooh's" and "aaaah's" each time I saw new Art Recipes published. I often went to the older Art Recipes for the inspiration. I love to take part in monthly Art Recipes and I'm sure this challenges will inspire you all so much! Can't wait to see your beautiful creations! “ ~ Aleksandra

This month we are playing with clear gesso, mini art stones, metallique waxes and icing pastes and we are creating in Vintage style and color scheme. So I decided to go all vintage.
