Are you looking for ideas for using all those scraps of paper, vintage elements, rusty findings and random embellishments you’ve been hoarding for ages? Perfect, I’m here to help!

So many possibilities and beautiful effects are waiting for us if we combine the elements that usually don’t go together. Scrapbooking papers, traditional embellishments, and rusty washers or gears are not usually mixed with each other, but once we use the right products and techniques, everything is possible!

Live in the moment

During this Video Class, we will focus on techniques which will make your project beautiful and unique – adding details and effects based on Art Ingredients and Art Alchemy paints and waxes.
Together we will build our projects step-by-step, and you will see that the presented techniques are very versatile and be easily used on many other projects, such as collages, altered objects or journal pages.

I’ll share my experience with you and try to give you plenty of information about the tools and products used. “Live in the Moment” is an exciting way to dive into the world where traditional scrapbooking and 3D mixed-media mix with each other freely and a great introduction to working with mica powders, waxes, paints and other art supplies.

Live in the Moment

This dynamic, informative, encouraging Video Class is suitable for all; only an elementary crafting experience is needed.
However, having some basic stash of found, rusty elements such as nails, washers or gears on hand is good! If you prefer, you can replace the photo with any inspiring object of your choice – this composition may work with almost anything you like as long as the size is right!

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.
