mixed media bird by Ingrid


Hi there 13arts friends!
Ingrid here today with a fun project, a mixed media bird.
Found this wooden bird (36cm) in a local store and I just had to alter it! 

The fun began with collecting all kinds of metal pieces and buttons.
Added some glass filler, colored grit (grey light) and mika flakes (silver) for extra texture.
Painted all with a coat of gesso before adding all the paints.
For this project I again used my favorite turquoise and blue and green colors.

Some Scrapberry's flowers, also in 13arts store.

Metal pieces from my stash.

Thought the twigs were a nice touch, imitating some feathers.

A large key and metal leaves.

Two old buckles. You can put anything from your stash into a project! 

The bottom stand.
Made all of the textures with glass filler, grit and mika flakes.

Enjoy your day!

My Little Pony | Terhi Koskinen

 Hello there 13arts fans!

Terhi here with you today, and I'd like to introduce you to my new friend. Her name is My Little Pony and it makes me laugh.
I found a little horse from our local crafts store, it's made of cardboard mass and it was perfect base for a magic pony.


After two thin layers of gesso, the cardboard mass still suck all the mists I tried to use, so I added even two layers more. 
I used thread and strings to create textures, also some hot glue to adhere the strings and make more textures and details.
The hoofs are created with fine grained grits and gel medium.
And then, again another layers of gesso.


As said, I used a lot of mists to color My Little Pony.
The blue is combination of blue, indigo and black. There are also some paints used, to create more vibrant tones to coloring.


My Little Pony is clearly a unicorn, but to make her "magic wand" shine as it should shine, I used one decorative crystal on the top.
Notice her tail as well, it's an old paint brush - this the part which makes me laugh!


Thank you for coming by today!
Remember to include something funny to your creations ;)

Oh Crack ! - by Olga Heldwein

Hi there 13 Arts fans !
Olga here. Today I come to you with my work and a short video tutorial for nice trick in your backgrounds.
My work is rather simple one. I did a small round canvas and I didn't want to hide to much of a nice background.

Witajcie fani 13 Arts.
Dziś mam dla was prace i szybki tutek na spękania. Fajna szybka technika do urozmaicenia tła w pracach. Praca raczej z tych mało skomplikowanych i nie chciałam zasłonić całego tła, a wybrałam dość mały blejtramik :)


Details / Szczegóły



If you want to know how, I made those cracks with video :

Jak zrobić spękania możecie zobaczyć w filmiku. Ponieważ jest po angielsku to na szybko wytłumaczę.
Na dowolną powierzchnię zabezpieczoną cienką warstwa gel medium kładziemy równą dość grubą warstwę kleju. Zanim klej nam wyschnie, smarujemy gessem, ale staramy się nie połączyć produktów na naszej pracy.
Potem szybko suszymy nagrzewnica i obserwujemy jak nam ładnie gesso pęka :)

Using Stencils - Jacqueline Moore

Hello Lovely Blog Readers!! I hope this post finds you all well!

Today I would like to share with you some of the different ways you can use a stencil to get different looks. I have used the same stencil, multiple times on each of the tags below, to create different effects each time. 


 Some Details:




 Before we start playing with our stencil we need to prepare our Tags. Start by cutting to some white cardstock to the desired size, then punch a hole in the top using a hole punch.  


Then cut some 13 Arts paper to fit the top and distress the edges.


 I have used my Triangles Stencil from the Color Basics Collection.

First up are 2 very simple ways you can create a different look with your stencil, which i am sure many of you will have already tried.
On the Left I have simply placed the stencil over the tag and sprayed with 2 colors of Mist (Pastel Salmon and Raspberry). I have then lifted the stencil and placed it upside on the Tag on the Right. I have then used a tissue (I find that just using my fingers can smudge the design) to press the stencil against the tag, rubbing off the mist onto the paper, and creating a reverse print of the stencil.


Next up is of course using Modelling Paste with a stencil. You can spread the modelling Paste onto a new tag or place the stencil in a new position and apply over a tag you have just sprayed, building the pattern.
 

I have then sprayed the modelling Paste with my Mist while it was still wet. 


On the tag below I have stenciled the triangles onto the background using a lead pencil. I have moved the stencil around a few times to overlap the pattern. Next I just wiped some excess mist that was still sitting on the stencil onto the tag.


 Here I have spread a very small amount of Gel Medium through the stencil, then while the Gel was still wet sprinkled it with Light Gold Mica Flakes. I have purposely gone for an imperfect look, however you can still see the shape of the triangles in the mica, particularly on the left.


Once the Modelling Paste and Mists were completely dry on the tag below I have once again placed my stencil on it. I have then taken a stamp and black archival ink, and stamped on top of the stencil in a few places.


 These are only a few of my favorite ideas for using the same stencil in different ways. You could mix Gel Medium with Glitter, Grit, even a little Mist to create a glossy water-resistant pattern and spread through your stencil using a palette knife. You could trace the pattern onto your paper using different colors of watercolor pencil then spray with water to let the color soften. 

There is really no limit to what you can do, so pull out your supplies and stencils and see what you can come up with!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
