Inspired by Finnabair

I made this canvas for a "Be Inspired Finnabair Style" challenge at Snazzy's blog.

I really love everything Anna Dabrowska (aka Finnabair) creates and I have always wanted to try some of her techniques.
I first applied texture paste through one of my handmade stencils. Then I adhered sequins, some clay pieces, flowers, butterflies and letters. Finally, I sprayed gesso all over the canvas.

I was finally able to purchase some Distress Paints in my country - I bought all the 11 colours that were available and I had to test them the moment they arrived...

Not bad for my first try...


  1. Wow - fabulous - I love the bold, fresh colours, and that moon face is so wonderful! Aren't the Distress Paints fun?
