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.

Everyday Art Diary {week 5 & 6}

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.

Fingertip series - part II

My collection of Fingertip cards, folders and books is slowly growing. If you are interested what is Fingertip series and how did I start it, please click here.


Today I would like to share the continuation of this explorative journey and experiments with my fingerprints. A little book (3.5"x3.5") inspired by art of the amazing organic shapes and textures. Filled with hand-dyed papers, scraps, painted tea bags and resin paper.






I decided to list this book together with a few other items from my "Fingertip series" in my Etsy shop. Please click here to have a look. :)

"Heartfelt"

Experiments with my... face part 2. I'm not sure about the result, but I definitely enjoy this process. Somehow I have to learn to look at myself in the mirror in a different way and I must say that it's a very interesting experience. Probably positive.
