"Memories" layout with Sandi Clarkson

Welcome to the 13 Arts blog!

I hope that 2020 will be a very creative year for all of us!
Our design team does their very best to provide you with lots of inspiration!

For today's project, I have created a layout featuring a photo from Stella de Libero of one of her lovely designs. I love the juxtaposition of the fabulous gown against the wood slats of the Washed Wood paper, Grungy Walls. I've paired a sheet from Rose Fields, Evening Story  which was torn and layered in the upper center of the page.

After coating my papers with Clear Gesso, I did some stencil work with the Wonderful Nature Stencil and some Modeling Paste. When that was dry, I did some random stamping using the Rose For You A6 Stamp and permanent black ink.

Additional photo layers were created from the Evening Story as well as a white die cut I had on my desk. I've also used one of the wreaths from the In Bloom Ephemera Pack. 


For color I've used both Ayeeda Paint - Matte Raspberry as well as Chalk Burnt Sienna mist, often mixing the two. As well as painting with one of my brushes and moving with water, I also did some paint splattering. My white splatters were from the Watercolor set 16 pans - set of watercolors.

For texture, I've used Ecru Sisal3D balls mediumGold Microspheres XS and of course, some 49 and Market florals from my stash along with a few flat-backed pearls.

My chipboard title and flourish piece are both from the Chipboard set Summer Rhapsody A4 and were left natural.

I love adding color around my focal area to make it really pop!

I've used a few pieces of corrugated cardboard to elevate my photo for further dimension.

And here I'm sharing a close-up of the wreath from the ephemera pack.

That's all for today.
We thank you so much for coming by and for supporting us here at 13 Arts.
I'll see you next time!

~~~ Embrace ~~~
January 2020 Page by Patricia Basson

 Hello 13@rt friends....
Today I am sharing a Layout page with quite an amount of different 13@rt products...
To start I used papers from the In Bloom collection. Magnolia for my background and a piece of Rose Wallpaper on a piece of chipboard as my photo mat.
I primed the paper with Clear Gesso. Next I added white crackle paste with a palette knife. I did some stamping with the Star Alience stamp and brown Ink. Using Magic Powder and Modeling Paste I made a thick paste, colored it with the Black and Brown Rainbow Colour and then put it trough the Wonderful Nature stencil. Adding the Magic Powder resulted in the paste making some cracks when dry. I also used the paste on the edges of my paper. I colored the two corners  of my page using Brown Sugar Vintage paint and Rust powder activated with the  Rust Reagent.

All the chipboard pieces were painted with the Matt and Vivid Green paints together with Brown Sugar Vivid Vintage Paint. Also 'aged' them by using the rust powder on them. The piece of cheesecloth was colored with Black Rainbow Color. I made floral arrangements with the chipboards, dried roots and several flowers. For a little feminine touch I added some of the Purple Mica flakes as well.

I enjoyed creating this page using the following products available in the 13@rts online store....

Thank you for looking at my work. Wishing all a creative week...

Art journal with ephemeras by Monika

Witam Was bardzo serdecznie w Nowym Roku! Jako pierwszą inspirację przygotowałam art journal z wykorzystaniem fantastycznych elementów z tego i tego zestawu. Dzięki nim sam proces tworzenia jest łatwy, szybki i przyjemny :)

Welcome for the first time in New Year! As the first inspiration I prepared art journal page using fantastic elements from this and this set. Thanks to them, the creation process is easy, fast and pleasant :)

Ponieważ chciałam nieco wtopić elementy w tło, postanowiłam zrobić na nich embossing na gorąco z wykorzystaniem czarnego pudru i mojego ulubionego stempla. Uzyskany efekt jest całkiem ciekawy.

Because I wanted to blend the elements into the background a bit, I decided to do hot embossing on them using black powder and my favorite stamp.

Mam nadzieję, że mój projekt przypadnie Wam do gustu :) Życzę Wam udanego dnia!

I hope you like my project :) Have a nice day!
