ATC swap, anyone?

 Autumn is always a little depressing time for me. I love autumn, love all the colours but I need time to get used to shorter days and chilly, wet days. That is why this autumn I decided to clear my calendar and make art only for myself. Create what I have a mood for, do what I feel I want to do.

I've made a few ATC lately and I thought that would be great to send them away. I have got a few ATCs from you which I treasure. It's not surprising that my favourite ones are with my stamps and images. I'm always so happy to see my images on your beautiful creations.
That's why I thought that would be great to extend my collection.


Would you like to swap your ATCs with me? The only thing which I ask you is to use one of my images (images from my colouring book, my digi stamps, stamps from Craft Stamper or Stampotique stamps). If you haven't got any of my images, please check put my Etsy shop.

Please send me an email magdapolakow@gmail.com if you want to join the swap and leave a comment (optional).

Handmade art journals

As you know I'm totally addicted to art journaling and art journals. 
Very often I make them by myself. I paint covers and sew them together with watercolour paper.

Few weeks ago I sent two small art journals (A6 size) to America.

Making cards!

Hello lovely people!
For last few days, most of the time I've been working on my Christmas and greeting cards designs. 
Painted but still mixed media.

The fox is already available in my Etsy shop.
The rest is going to my local professional printers very soon.
Can't wait to see them printed on beautiful 350gsm silk paper.


A few more designs...

Art journal pages...a few of them

For last few months I was busy creating illustrations for other companies, trying to add as much stuff as I can to my Etsy shop and of course I was creating art journal pages. My art journal is almost full, it is time to create or buy a new one, or both!

A few pages...







Next time I will come back with some news about my Wanderlust 2016 video.

Collage sheets for art journaling and more...

Hello lovely people!
Today I want to show you some of my mixed media creatures. I've created a few art journal pages with some cute creatures and I thought 'why not to create collage sheets with them!?'. And here they are. I had fun creating them, I hope you like them.




I will come back with some art journal pages soon.

What to do with colouring pages part 2

Someone made my day today!!! Thank you Samantha!

A few days ago I sent my new colouring page to Samantha and asked her to play a little with it. She surprised me and made three projects using the page! She is so clever, I'm over the moon! I need to show you her projects but first please check out Samantha's amazing blog.

The colouring page is full of cute creatures. Some of you may know my 'Find a Teddy' pages, where cute teddies are hiding but this one is a little different. A lot of various characters and I hope a lot of fun for colouring lover. You can find a colouring page on Etsy
I need to say that my favourite creatures are Donut Beaver and Panda Bear. 
Can you find them?


.Samantha's projects (looooove them all!!!!)
