Live Life Fully ~ a layout with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, 13 Arts fans!

Sandi here with you today sharing my most recent layout using the gorgeous Blue Magnolia paper collection. This is my first "solo" project since joining the Design Team and I am beyond thrilled to be here.

I adore scrapping photos of the outdoors and this photo of a granddaughter with her pony was just too precious. I'm drawn to earth colors, so chose some papers from 13 Arts Blue Magnolia to co-ordinate with my photo, Blue Magnolia at Dusk and Blue Magnolia Flowery Day.

My first step after getting a feel for my basic design was to coat my papers with 13 Arts Clear Gesso so that any added color would not soak through the papers. The gesso also helps any water-based color move across the paper. Next I adhered a few scraps of the Flowery Day to At Dusk.

Step two was to create some texture by pushing 13 Arts Modeling Paste through the Wallpaper Stencil ... which is definitely a fave of mine! While that was drying, I did a little fussy cutting of flowers and cotton stems from the Blue Magnolia A4 Elements and the Blue Magnolia Flowery Day paper. They make for great matching embellishments.

Before moving on to my color, I did some random stamping with the Rose for You Stamp as well as created some distressed photo layers with papers from the Blue Magnolia 6x6 paper pad.

The 13 Arts Navy Blue Water Ink was a perfect choice to use with the Blue Magnolia papers. I put some in a disposable palette and transferred color from there to the paper with a small brush. Then I used my water mister to move the color around until it looked pleasing. I definitely wanted some areas of darker color to really enhance the texture created by the modeling paste and stencil.

Next I began assembling my layers and added some Sisal ecru on top of the fussy cut elements. I also built up my photos with corrugated cardboard beneath them. I tucked in a few flowers from my stash and adhered them with Gel Medium.

Almost as an afterthought, I decided to add some Brown Water Ink around my photos to help them pop out a bit and really have that rough, outdoor look.

Here I adhered my fussy cut butterflies and then finished with some 3D balls. To complete the project, I splattered with some watered down 13 Arts White Gesso to help blend all the elements.

In lieu of a title, I lastly added some word phrases from the Vintage Moments Word Stickers sheet.

That's it from me today.
Below is a list of the 13 Arts products used along with links to the online store.

See you next time!

Little Birdies by Szandra Szántó-Brezanóczy

Hi Friends!

I brought you a colorful spring home decor, because Spring is coming soon :)
The idea came from my children, who have lovely and colorful personalities.

Oh, my sweet little birdies.

At first i used white gesso and then i painted the sides with watercolors mixed with a lot of water.
I used Color Glow on the roof to achieve a shine effect like in Spring when the sun is shining.
The Metallic! paint help me to highlights the chipboard tags.

I chose all of my favorite decor elements which i always use on my the layouts:
stencils, modeling paste, crackle paste, stamps, mica flakes, flowers, sizzix die cuts, 
splash ink and stickers.

Color Glow- Product of The Month - part III

Color Glow

Color Glow obchodziły ostatnio swoje urodziny. Postanowiliśmy to uczcić czyniąc je produktem miesiąca :) Nasi Projektanci przygotowali z nimi kilka fajnych prac.
Jeżeli nie znacie jeszcze tego produktu oto kilka informacji do czego możecie go użyć: 
It's Color Glows' first birthday, so we decided it's going to be our product of the month :) Our Designers made some lovely projects with them.
If you don't know the product yet here are some details what can you do with them. 

Color Glow

Można ich używać na wiele sposobów. 

1. Zmieszaj je z wodą i używaj jak akwarelek, np. do kolorowania stempli
2. Spryskaj powierzchnię wodą i maluj mokrym pędzelkiem zanurzonym w Color Glow
3. Posyp kartkę i spryskaj wodą
4. Pomieszaj je z Gel Medium by uzyskać błyszczącą pastę idealną do użycia z maskami. 
5. Wymieszaj je z Liquid Medium by uzyskać niezwykłe efekty farby akrylowej na swoich pracach 
6. Wymieszaj z przeźroczystym woskiem by uzyskać kolorowe woski w ulubionych odcieniach

Im więcej dodamy wody tym kolor będzie jaśniejszy i tym bardziej proszek się rozpuści. Ciemniejszy odcień otrzymamy dodając więcej proszku i mniej wody.

There are so many ways to use them. You can:

1. Mix them with water and use like water paints for example to color the stamps 
2. Spray your surface with water and then paint with wet brush and some powder.
3. Sprinkle with some powder and then spray with water.
4. Mix them with Gel Medium to have a shiny paste great to use with stencils 
5. Mix them with liquid medium to get amazing acrylic paint effects on your projects 
6. Mix them with transparent wax to get a colorful one. 

The more water you add the lighter color you achieve and the powder will dissolve more.
