Hello again!

I do always struggle what to call my latest creations. I started my crafting journey more or less three years ago with simple decoupage projects. A bit of paint, napkin cut outs, sealed with varnish, voila! a finished piece. Then, of course, I got hungry for more techniques and tricks. So I’m always itching to try a combination of decorating solutions for one piece. And then I need to come up with a fairly brief title that would give you a rough idea what are you looking at. Not possible. At least not this time 🙂

So, here it is:

Mod Podge (matte plaid) transfer of laser print outs of mushrooms and ferns;

grzyby final


Latin names, flies and dandelions stamped with Versamark pine cone ink;


I tried embossing a couple of flies with a clear embossing powder, later buffed with some silver rub ons;

grzyby mucha szara

Cold embossing, hot embossing, Ranger Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks, sand paper (I love this technique, it’s pure magic :));


Again, MP transfers and embossed dandelions;


grzyby emboss4

I must say that MP is the easiest and the quickest transfer method for laser print outs I have ever tried. You just need to be careful when removing the backing paper from the edges of more intricate motifs.
