Finnabair Inspired Challenge!

Over on the Snazzy's DT Blog today we have a challenge for you.
Make a bit of art inspired by the very talented  Anna Dabrowska aka Finnabair.
You could be in with the chance of winning one of her fab mixed media journal by Prima.
I am a big fan of how Anna uses die-cuts in her scrapbook layouts so I decided to take my inspiration from there.
I started with a piece of  7dot studio paper and did some stencilling using Anna's new prima sunrise sunset stencils, I also did a tiny bit of stamping with her new clear mini stamps.
Next I added a few layers with some of the sunrise sunset papers, washi tape and the film strip die cut.
Time now for a photo, some more die cuts and other bits like lace and some of the prima sunrise sunset vintage trinkets.

Along with a wee bit more stamping with the mini cling stamps, I am loving the tiny little doily images, too cute..
And there you have it. A finn inspired bit of art.. What will you make?
I look forward to seeing how Anna inspires you.
Stay Inky

Nicky this is a gorgeous layout and I can most definitely see where the inspiration came from and yet you have made it your own. Lovely use of the stamps and stencils and I love the layering of the papers and tape etc. Beautiful stuff!
