CHALLENGE 3 – OCEANIA
...The art of storytelling!
 ​
Oceania is a continent containing many low-lying islands which has been populated by countless different ETHNIC groups for many millennia.

Besides English and French, there are nearly 900 other languages in the continent to tell its traditional STORIES AND LEGENDS which have been passed down through the generations. OCEANIAN ART encompasses both material and spiritual aesthetics of the native peoples of the Pacific, (rock paintings, totems…) as well as numerous meaningful SYMBOLS, such as body painting and tattoos, which can often denote the social standing or even the magic powers of the person who wears them. The land itself is often seen as being sacred: the environment and all its variations imposes its COLOURS on the people that live in it, and influences the way they live their lives by the RESOURCES it provides them.

Whatever form your project takes, it should tell a story, be inspired from the images below, and should include at least one of the following elements;
-Patterns inspired by traditional symbols (Maori tattoos, Dots/dashes of aboriginal Arts…)
-Think Monochromatic black and white or think colors of the Earth.
-Some sort of organic or natural material(s) (earth, stone, bone, bark, wood, fibres…)
-Shapes inspired by traditional or indigenous art


I created a big mixed media canvas inspired by Aboriginal art – the colors, shapes, natural elements and hands prints. I did not plan the final look, I just chose the colors of paints and started to create. I played with paints, stamps, layers and details. You can just start creating and then stop at any point. I got carried away with the creative process, but you can actually make less layers and it will also look interesting. So my story which I am telling on this canvas, is that I am being close to the nature and traditions. On my video I have also used Aboriginal music, mostly played with didgeridoo, very old, traditional Aborigine instrument. It’s amazing, deep and true and you can really be inspired by this music itself.

I have a video tutorial showing the creation of my project for everyone who is subscribed to any of the AALL & Create online workshops.

Hello - layout with Vintage moments collection from 13 arts

Olga's collections are always beautiful and this one is one my favorite's of all I have ever worked with. I created a layout, first I added some white gesso, then I made some texture with Olga's new stencil, also from "Vintage moments" collection. I also added some stamping and colors to frame one of my most beautiful memories from Bondi Beach. 

Uwielbiam wszystkie kolekcje zaprojektowane przez Olgę, ta jest jednak jedną z moich najulubieńszych;)  Stworzyłam layout, zaczynając od pokrycia części papieru białym gesso. Następnie dodałam wzór przez  maskę, trochę stempli i kolorów - wszystko po to, by oprawić jedno z moich ulubionych wspomnień w z ostatnich miesięcy - Bondi Beach.

'Hello'

Believe

Hello 13 arts friend, I am popping in today to show you my layout "Believe" created with brand new "Strength in Numbers" collection by Fiona Paltridge. I just loooooove this collection. As you may know Fiona is from Australia and somehow I feel this Aussie spirit in this collection. That is why I have chosen my photo made in  Australia  this April and even used eucalyptus tree rind to make more real :) I have chosen "Believe" title as I was dreaming about coming back to Australia for sooooo many years, so yes - believe - anything is possible :) 

Witajcie kochani, dzisiaj chciałabym pokazać Wam mój layout z najnowszej kolekcji Fiony 'Strength in Numbers'. Uwielbiam tę kolekcję za jej oryginalność i piękne kolory. Jak wiecie Fiona i pochodzi z Australii i nie wiem dlaczego, ale czuję w tej kolekcji nieco Australijskiego ducha. Dlatego też wybrałam zdjęcie zrobione właśnie tam, użyłam nawet kory eukaliptusa, aby było bardziej prawdziwie:) A tytuł "Believe" wybrałam tez nieprzypadkowo, marzyłam o powrocie do Australii przez wiele lat, więc tak - uwierzcie - wszystko jest możliwe;)

Art Journey layout

 Hello, today on 13 arts blog we want to share with you some projects made by our talented designers with our new collection "Art Journey" designed by me :D 

"The idea about Art journey collection was to design happy, colorful papers and the main theme is art, looking for your own way of creativity. So that's why I combined some artistic and travel elements and some pastel colors. Hope you will have a lot fun creating with Art Journey"

Witajcie, na blogu 13 arts przedstawiamy dziś kilka prac naszych utalentowanych projektantów z najnowszej kolekcji "Art Journey".

"Pomysł na kolekcję Art Journey powstał z potrzeby stworzenia wesołej, kolorowej kolekcji, której motywem przewodnim będzie poszukiwanie własnej kreatywności, podróżowanie ze sztuką. Dlatego znajdziecie tu połączenie elementów artystycznych (takich jak pędzel) oraz podróżniczych (mapa czy pocztówka w tle), a to wszystko rożnych odcieniach różu, fioletu, mięty i granatu. Mam nadzieję, że będzie Wam się przyjemnie tworzyć z Art Journey"

Here is my happy layout
with the photo of me and my amazing team mates:)
