Ingrid here today, introducing our second Guest Designer, Irina Rakovets. You can check my first post about how Irina got to join us today HERE. I am so glad she participated and agreed to share her amazing art with us. Irina is a very talented lady and her passion for mixed media shines through every one of her creations. Here's a little bit about her and from her...
I am a happy mother of two adult children and a grandmother to two mischievous grandsons. I live near St. Petersburg, Russia.
I have been scrapbooking for about four years and I share my work via blog - Скрап-ХоббиМания, where I’m known by the nickname of IrinaR \ Irina Rakovets. Same as my Facebook page.

I cannot say that I stick to one style – I very much like Vintage, Shabby and Steampunk and I love paint so often my work cannot do without the mixed media. Here is a collage that fully reflects what I love to do.
I created a canvas for the MMW August challenge- the Sea. I did an imitation of old boards using binding cardboard and acrylic paints. Imitation porthole - chipboard circles, cardboard, texture paste through a stencil, acrylic paint. I added stones and pieces of glass polished by the sea waves, seashells, secured with a texture paste with glass beads, coloured granules. The Octopus (my grandson’s old toy), was primed and painted with acrylic paints. It blends nicely into in this panel, in my opinion.
