Paintbrush in a... book.

...this is what it exactly is and there is probably not much more left to explain.

Altering books is one of my favourite things. The one that I used as a base for this little project was destroyed by me but believe me that my intentions were pure and good. Its cover is now a part of my art journal from one our recent trip and it serves me very well. I'll show it soon but for now let's see what happened to the guts. 

A book turned into a frame to praise one of my favourite tools - a paintbrush.


This paintbrush is of course one of the stamps from our recent set made with PaperArtsy:

{set is available here - worldwide shipping included}




A little bit of painting, spraying... pure pleasure. I think I like these little forms a lot.
Have a great evening!

Everyday Art Diary {July}

My Everyday Art Diary: This stuff is random and imperfect, but I allowed myself to be more careless about perfection this time. This is my true and as not-influenced-by-anything as possible expression. Raw but pure, very intimate and close to my heart details from my everyday life. I'm sorry I had to blur some writing, doesn't look very professional probably, but as much as I want to share I also want to keep some bits only for myself.

Colour wheel feast part II

In my last blog post I was on about this new set of stamps that we created with PaperArtsy, but there wasn't much of a good sample, was there? Well... maybe 20 minutes of a video is some kind of a sample, but I guess some of you just want to see some hard evidence that these stamps really work well. And they do so here are a few samples:


You can get yourself a set of these stamps from Everything Art shop.


Colour wheels, colours wheels and colour wheels again. They are a great fun, believe me. In a few minutes I was able to try some of the colour combinations that always were on my "to try out" list. Crayons, pastels, watercolours, acrylics, fabrics, scraps of papers - anything goes and everything works! I think it's a great idea for all of us who like some experimenting with colours or need to learn how to nicely mix them and combine them.


A good colour and material combination can  lead you to a good art journal page. This will always be a great fun because colours are already chosen so all you need to do is to stick to them and play.


Colour wheels as a gift tag and decoration item? Why not! I'm sure some of my arty friends will really really appreciate getting a present packed like that.


Mood boards! O my, that's a big thing. Don't you love mood boards? I always have mine in front of my desk. A good bunch of inspiration bursting with colours and positive energy! No better way to get things going, I'm telling you! I'm simply creating a few colour wheels and choosing which colour combinations I love the most. I stick them on my mood board and they keep me inspired for a few next weeks.

And what do you love most about creating your colour wheels and how would you use them? I'm sure there are some pretty good ideas in your head! 
Why won't you share on your social media using #EAstamps as a hashtag. 
We would love to see them and pin them to our Pinterest board.

Wanderlust Book spreads.

Today I would like to share a few of my pages that I made in my very special book - Wanderlust Book. Wanderlust Book challenge is one of the additional activities that we run on Wanderlust Community for all of our Adventurers. We are challenging our sweet students to dig a little deeper inside themselves with our thought-provoking prompts. Twice a month there is a new one and once a month I also share a little video with an inspiration for Wanderlust Book. Here are some of my spreads from this activity:




Have a lovely evening!

Mid Wales & "Small Winter"

Hello! Looks like last time I posted here it was first day of May and I was sitting in front of the computer in the house... that I don't live anymore.

During last month we have moved to a sweet house in Mid Wales - place that I was secretly dreaming of for some time.  I know, millions of people are moving every day, from place to place and from country to another but... you know, for me it seems quite a big step that 2 years ago I wouldn't expect I am going to make. Very personal step. So let me be a bit selfish now as I'm going to say that I am honestly proud of myself. I think we all could do with admitting it more often and being happy with our own little achievements.

It's really not the material stuff that I'm so proud of, it's being myself... finding this Kasia that can be strong, that can make decisions, that can move and do things and that was hidden for way too long in the walls that she built herself. This is a massive change for me and I decided to celebrate and embrace it.


In the meantime  I was of course doing stuff just like I always do, just kept going. I think I finished with blue fingertip series and I'm moving on to the reds - very exciting of course, I feel like I just discovered this colour. I still art journal almost every day, even if it's just a tiny little bit. Every week we are shooting something for Everything Art so that keeps us pretty busy as well.

I'm totally stunned with the love and good power that comes to us from Wanderlust Community. Support and understanding are something that this place is totally immersed in and I'm absolutely loving it. These people there are so beautiful! If you are on Wanderlust Community and you are reading this I want to say one thing - THANK YOU!

Here's a prove that I'm working hard at Everything Art - a capture from my last class on Wanderlust. I was making some mixed-media prayer flags.

And to prove another thing, the fact hat I was busy, let me show you one of my blue Fingertip Series sets. This one is smaller than others but still comes in a nice little folder. Cards are made out of hard covers of an authentic old book and are painted using mixed-media and encaustic techniques.
Size of each card is about 2.3"x2.3"
The set is called "Small winter"





This set and the others are available in my Etsy shop

Fingertip series - part III - "Summer"

Another addition to my Fingertip series. A set of three cards called "Summer". They are made out of hard covers of an authentic old book and are painted using mixed-media and encaustic techniques. Layers of paint, petals submerged in wax and a bit of stamping with stamps from first Everything Art set from Paper Artsy
Like all of my Fingertip cards I decided to put them in a little paper folder. 










This set of three encaustic cards in a little folder is also listed in my Etsy shop. Please feel free to have a browse.
