January 2018 - 2nd Guest Designer

Are you ready for a last bit of inspiration before the end of the Challenge? Let's see how our 2nd guest designer this month wants to inspire you. There is still time to join the Vellum paper themed  January Challenge.

Let's meet Darianna for this weeks inspiration:

Darianna Neko is here with you today! I'm so glad to be the guest designer in the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo blog! Thank you for such an honor!) I learned about mixedmedia the spring of 2017. This magical world fascinated me and does not want to let go :). I like to make layouts, canvases and art objects. I also create altered projects in this technique. What is special about my projects? I think - contrast, darkened edges, gloom, atmospheric. I like gothic and fantasy theme.
 It's time to show my project I've made for the January 2018 Challenge - Vellum paper! 

I'm happy to show you my new canvas "Beauty in chaos!", that I've made for the January Challenge!
I like the gothic theme, so I've chosen a photo with a gothic girl with the skull of an animal, made by the photographer Svetlana Belyaeva (she takes very interesting atmospheric photos by the way).
This canvas is a monochromatic canvas. To make this canvas I used three colours. Black and white  are the main 
colours, and brown is an accent colour i used in the quotes. Black and white colours are very stylish, I love them!
As you see to make the composition I cut out so many butterflies! :) I stamped butterflies on the white vellum, plastic and some black card stock. And as you understand, then someone had to cut it all out !!! :))
Also I cut some vellum leaves using my dies and die-cut machine. By the way, you can see a rectangular sheet of plastic under the photo. I applied a texture paste to it as well as on the background. But this time I used white texture paste. And I shaded the edges of the plastic with black gesso.
The word sticker are from my beloved 7 Dots Studio (from Cotton Candy Dreams Collection)! For the finishing touch I splashed black and white inks and shaded the edges of canvas with black gesso.
I hope you enjoye my canvas about beauty and chaos with this atmospheric gothic butterfly-girl!  ;)

Thank you Darianna for creating this beautiful project! If you liked the guest designer work be sure to leave her some lovely comments.
