Hello dear readers of the Art Playground blog! Darianna Neko (


is here to inspire you today! :)

Just look at our August color scheme-  teal,gray,mint, black & white colours! It’s completely gorgeous! The combination of these colors so inspires me!

For The August Challenge I've created the canvas. I titled it “Enjoy the precious moment!".

After I saw the colors in which the work should be done, I began to look for a suitable photo.

My friend's daughter recently had a birthday, she was 2 years old.

I decided to emphasize the photo. The photography attracts the eye, it is the biggest element of the composition.

Than I started to build the composition  while complimenting the main element (the photo) and support it with the others.

I was choosing colors, shades and shapes that resemble to the main element.


I picked up some chipboard quotes(that are perfectly suit), flowers and molds from Prima Marketing.

I also use paper butterfly from the newest collection “ Garden party” from 7dotsstudio! They are so airy and beautiful!

Also I used “mechanicals”- metal embellishments from Finnabair.


The background is made using clear gesso, white gesso, stencil and light paste from Finnabair and color bloom sprays “Precious Stone”, “Deep Teal” and “Soft teal” from Prima.

I embossed the pattern and the background using Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powders - Purely white and Silver Moon Turquoise. It turns fantastic, do you think the same?


As a final touch I've added black and white splashes to further integrate the background with the composition.


In the end I got this tender and contrasting canvas, the gift to my friend that soon be in her hands!:)  I hope she will appreciate and like it, because I’m truly in love with it!!!


That's all! Hope you enjoyed it and find something interesting for yourself. Darianna Neko was with you.
