Two projects and a tutorial by our GD- Céline Régnier

Our wonderful GD Céline Régnier created a beautiful layout for you! Do you remember her amazing project for our Challenge? Today she'll also show us how she made it. 

Nasza cudowna projektantka Céline Régnier przygotowała dla Was piękny layout! Czy pamiętacie jej projekt na nasze wyzwanie? Dzisiaj pokaże nam także jak go wykonała. 


Inspiration came from this old picture of my sister Isabelle, I really love this photo and her expression.

My background is a paper from Cosy Evening Collection, I glued on it an old book page, a doily, and I layered papers from PaperPad Color Basic Collection.
I added embellishments, masking tape, flowers, chipboards.

I splashed Ayeeda Ink black. 
I also played with stamps and modeling past.
That's it !

Thank you so much for this fantastic adventure in the 13@rts Guest Design Team!

My inspiration came from the challenge picture and my favorite color : Pink.
I started by gluing white cotton fabric on my tag 

and then applied gesso 

Once dry, I added paper tape

and I layered papers from PaperPad Color Basic Collection

apply randomly a new layer of gesso.

I sewed all around the tag and I sprayed some water on my background then I added a few drops of Ayeeda Spray Chalk Burnt Sienna to have a watercolor effect.

I used a brown watercolor pencil to sharp edges of my layering.

I added black doodles all around the tag. 

I glued my title, buttons and splashed black ink

Now it's time to embellish : I created a butterfly with one of my favorite stamps and attached 3 old paint brushes.

it's done ! 
hope you like it !

together - layout

My entry for the Scrap Around The World challenge.
Photo is from Tessa with her dad at a lovely day together at the beach.
These two have such a special bond and it's great to see how much they love each other and laugh at the same jokes that nobody seems to understand except them selfs! LOL

I created the background with a mix of gesso and sand using a pallet knife .
Added the colors, some misted and some directly from the bottle with a brush.

The beautiful moodboard for the Scrap Around The World challenge.

Here are some close-ups:
Twigs and cherry blossom flowers from Scrapberry's.

The lovely handmade fabric flowers made by my friend Paulien.

Square pieces of an old necklace and some wooden beads.
Some turquoise mesh between the embellishments. 

The together metal piece is also from Scrapberry's and also available at the 13arts store.

LO {Smile} by Terhi

Hello everyone!

Terhi here today with a purple layout. Our April challenge, hosted by lovely Ingrid, inspired me to play with colors. The challenge is to play with your favorite color, and I did, but I also wanted to play with other colors. One by one and today with purple.

To create the background, I played with Splash! inks, mists and paints - all spread up with water.
Super simple technique, my personal favorite.

I also used some modelling paste with our new stencils, and I chose to use papers from Mental Vacation and Starlight collections. They match together perfectly!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Love by Melenia

Hello ladies!
It's Melenia here with you today, just to share my take
on the Scrap Around the World April challenge, which the 13 Arts DT
was honoured to be the guest DT for this month.

The moodboard is totally inspirational and I had so much fun playing with it!

This is what I came up with

The background paper had already half of the texture 
I wanted my page to have
so all I had to do was
to play with a few Ayeeda mists, using them as watercolours and
then add my embellishments.

I actually used all the shades of turquoise that I had in  my stash!
I also painted my chipboard with them!
Gold served as a complimentary colour -
you can see it in the little gold stripes and the splashes.

Making Memories with Jelissa

Hello there 13@rts fans!

I'm so happy to be here today to share a project I made using lots of new products from 13@rts. I also have a step-by-step photo tutorial to show the different ways these products can be used.

Step 1

I'm starting with "Pegasus" paper from the Starlight collection designed by the fabulous Olga Heldwein. I'm using it for my background and I have also used her "Hearts Stencil" to create a bit of contrast and texture on the black paper. Then I stuck on my very simple paper layers, which is the "Orion" paper from the same collection.

Step 2

The fun begins as I start adding on colors. First I used Mahogany Matt Paint to highlight the edges of the paper layers, followed by misting with Chalk Turquoise Light Mist and watering it down. Then I splattered Mahogany Matt Paint, Gold Pearl Paint, with little flicks of Splash! Ink in Turquoise.

Step 3

To add more contrast, I applied a very thin coat of modeling paste over a stencil.

Step 4
In this step, I'm altering a piece of chipboard. To prime the surface, I used black gesso instead of my usual white one because I really want to see some contrast. ThenI mixed the new Magic Powder from 13@rts with Gold Pearl paint to create a paste that I applied over the same Hearts stencil in my background. After that, I applied some Splash! turquoise ink with my fingers. I had some left over paste so I used those on my layered papers and sprinkled different colored sand grit and microspheres on top for a nice textural effect.

And this is the result when dried. 

And this is the finished layout after embellishments:

Some close-ups:

I forgot to take the pictures for the alteration of this chipboard title. But basically, I primed it with black gesso followed by a generous layer of metallic paint in Turquoise. Then I mixed matt Turquoise paint with Silver Pearl paint and brushed over the second layer. When all is dried, I used a wet brush to remove some parts of the lighter color to reveal the darker layer beneath. The result is a nicely layered color with dimension. You can also see the part where I added my extra Gold paste with the sand grit in light blue and natural colors.

And that is all I have for today. Have a great week ahead!
