Over to Jana...

Hello dear crafty souls and Mixed Media Academy fans!

My name is Adrijana (Jana) aka Paper Beauty AK. I’m 45 years old and I live with my family in a small European country – Slovenia. I’m married to a graphic designer and we have three beautiful children. We love nature ... mountains, sea, forest and animals. And I love gardening.
I've dabbled in a variety of crafts, and my true passion has always been card making: book cards & exploding boxes ... until recently (2 years ago) when I discovered the world of mixed media! Now I just can't stop myself from making a mess!

Thank you so much to the Mixed Media Academy team and dear Vidhi for inviting me to spend the day with them. I’m thrilled and honoured to be here with such a talented group of artists.

My Project

About project:

I was very happy when I saw the Moodboard - it’s amazing and interesting , because you can use so many unusual ideas for designing the project. You can recycle some old stuff and put them in a new look. I was thinking how to use a ligh bulb? I recycled one bulb some time ago, so I got the idea of two bulbs. I really love 3D projects and I decided to create an hourglass. I cut out six circles from the cardboard as a ligt bulbs stand and used two bamboo sticks. I glued all together with a hut gun and colored with a black gesso. When it was dried, I added a mix with a whit gesso, texture paste and art stones.  In the end, I used different sprays, acrylic paints and wax paste. I hope I could inspire you in some way and you’ll like my altered hourglass. Have a nice day!
