O Fortuna!


'O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable, ever waxing or waning.'
These famous words from an old chant made me go medieval and a bit contemplative with my journal...
Good night, silver beams upon you, my dear readers.

Sunny announcements


I'm happy to announce that my mixed-media class 'Written in the Stars' will take place during wonderful Polish Craft Party in September. We will be working with brand new and recycled materials, as well as with yummy 7 Dots Studio stuff. Just have a look at this awesome art meeting in Poznan, it is full of creative juices and friendly atmosphere.


What is the best package to find in a letterbox? Freshly printed Somerset Studio Gallery! Finding my piece titled Celestial Rust on its glossy pages made my heart sing. I will take this inspiring issue for some outdoor reading, so I wish you delightsome summer time filled with light, joy and making your bond with nature tight.

Silver Thorn



Two new collections by 7 Dots have something in common: subtle palettes, eerie paterns and designs taken directly from the natural world. This means that they would wonderfully combine with my dried treasures. So, here comes a new spread in my nature diary.
I would like to announce that the winner who takes the goodies from the previous post is Miss Marple. Conrgatulations!

Spring Abundance


'Spring drew on...and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.'
Charlotte Brontë

Principles of Truth


There is something very appealing in Dee Dee Catron’s collections. Something they have in common, maybe the vintage air in them, maybe the edgy design or maybe the topis which are brought to life. But one thing is certain: the unique and outstanding versatility which allows you to mix them every time you want. Cotton Candy’s sweetness with Tarot figures mysticism, together with botanical prints of Homegrown collection, all go together very well. You can pick and add all you favourite elements into one magical potion. I’m sure it will cast its creative spell on you!

At Magic School

http://marina-solnechnaya.blogspot.ru/2016/12/guest-designer-olga-siedlecka.html
Have you already heard about Marina Syskova's Magic School, which is a great place to gain a lot of knowledge and inspiration? Sponsored by fabulous 7 Dots Studio it also offers amazing prizes for its students. You can't miss such a treat! I'm happy to join this art academy as a guest designer with the below assemblage, just have a look here.
I have to admit that all collections which were designed by Dee Dee Catron are definitely my favourite ones. Their soft tones, vintage patterns and endless possibilities of combining are the keys to my creative heart. This time I went with the flow and mixed them in a structural assemblage. The base of my work is a piece of unbleached cardstock which I found some time ago as a kind of packaging. It turned out to be a perfect starter for small arrangements painted in a limited earthly palette. Recycled materials always make perfect companions for brand new collections by 7 Dots, don't you think?
