Do you think about making a lovely handmade gift for loved ones or a magical box for your special treasures? Would you like to get more ideas on how to use Effect Pastes and Stencils and how to create lovely, grungy, yet elegant textures on your project? I’m here to help!
The “Butterfly Magic Box” is rich in techniques and creative ideas, which you can easily transfer to many other surfaces and projects.
Multiple “signature” Finnabair style concepts are included in it: layering, building textures and interesting visual effects using inspiring art mediums, paints, and dimensional elements.
Stencils, Jewel Effect Pastes, Liquid Acrylic Paints, elements made in Finnabair moulds and metal embellishments – all working together to create this rich, regal, magical look.
During this class, you will soon realise that what started as a humble, plain box was quickly turned into a “Butterfly Magic” Treasure!
There is so much to look at: extraordinary, rich, shiny textures paired beautifully with garden elements to create a magical, almost fairy-tale atmosphere.
During the video, you can watch all the “creative magic” happen as I take you through the whole project, element by element, layer by layer, to finally get to the final touches and small bits and pieces. The entire process is recorded in detail; you can watch it as many times as you wish!
If you’d like to get more confident with dimensional, clustered compositions and creating unique, shiny effects on your projects, this is the right place to start!
This dynamic, informative, encouraging Video Class is suitable for all – only an elementary crafting experience is needed!

You might know me as Finnabair, but my real name is Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka, and I’m a mixed media artist, teacher, coach and product designer.
Transforming and upcycling everyday objects is the cornerstone of my craft; to make this “casual magic” possible for everyone, I develop approachable techniques for all skill levels. Between textures and paint, my love for dimensional artwork shaped the distinctive style. Mix in expressive freedom, awakening a creative spark each person holds inside, and therapeutic, releasing powers of art, and you’ll have a picture of my core values.
What had started as a hobby, in 2011 transformed into teaching in-person mixed media classes with immediate success. In 2013, I established a long-term relationship with one of the top craft suppliers worldwide, Prima Marketing; since then, I have counted myself among the most active and best-known product designers in the mixed-media world. The products I come up withstand out thanks to their distinctive style, which is unique to my brand, and blur the line between craft supplies, home décor, and fine art.
After over ten years on the market, I’m one of the most recognizable and experienced professional teachers in my field. My classes are in great demand, and I continuously strive to deliver the best possible experience and quality to my students. Being able to say that I successfully turned my passion into a full-time job is an incredible feeling.
My mission? To continue this magical, artistic journey, and guide, teach and encourage as many creative souls as I can on their path of self-discovery.
Art is always the Answer.
