Paints + Paints + Paints = a crazy, colorful Art Recipe!! The main focus for the Art Recipe this month is the amazing color explosion of Spring! The Finnabair Creative Team had a lot of fun expressing themselves with lots and lots of color! They couldn't wait to join the fun of our March Color Madness, so make sure you check out their gorgeous projects and amazing techniques!!
"I love the color palettes of all the Art Alchemy paints and especially the effects you get when using them on different colored backgrounds. They're super easy to use and permanent when dry. I decided to create a very lively, cheerful composition reminding me of a rainbow. I love Rust & Dust stamps - they are unusual and always add a lot of expression to every creation. I went for hot embossing in gold and I really love the effect here. But one of the best parts of my creative process was opening every jar of all the Alchemy paints and simply having fun using so many beautiful colors in one work."

"This months Art Recipe is music to my ears as I'm the kind of girl that dreams in colors. All Art Alchemy paints are a dream come true and what better way to share my joy than a magical rainbow..." ~ Kassa Hayselden
"Art Alchemy Waxes add super sheen and depth. I like to use a paintbrush to apply them, then blend out with my fingertip, and so many swoonworthy colors and finishes... I usually apply them near or at the finish of my artwork, they add that add something extra special that I've been searching for; that special depth that completes my page..."

"I don't know about you, but when I think "color", the first thing that comes to mind is a rainbow – full of bright, vibrant colors! With Spring just around the corner, I see the tulips and daffodils waiting to make their appearance in my garden with their splash of colors just waiting to be released. It reminds me of the bold colors that decorate the walls of Hosier Lane in Melbourne, almost electric mixing of graffiti and layered textures where the old meets the new. That was my inspiration for my 'Create Color' canvas." ~ John Creighton Petersen
