altered clock - by Ingrid

Don't you just love when a project turns out exactly how you visualized it in your head?!!
This altered clock is one of those projects.
I knew the colors and the feel of how it had to look and I just love how it turned out!

Started this clock by glueing some kitchen paper towel with 13arts acrylic gel medium.
Added all the embellishments, buttons, pearls and gears, and give it two coats with 13arts gesso.
Painted with my favorite color, turquoise and a touch of pink.
After all the paints I added the flowers:
 some paper flowers,mini roses, handmade thread flowers and the gorgeous tulle flower form 13arts.
The paper flowers were given a touch with gesso as well because I wanted a more softer look.
Also added a metal butterfly and some twigs.

Left side of the clock.
As you can see I let the design run through the left side as well.

Did the same on the right side.

The gorgeous tulle flower from 13arts.

The metal butterfly is from a Dutch home decor store.

The painted chipboard gears, buttons, pearls and metal mini flowers.
After all the paints I gave them all a touch with gesso for a more softer look.

Top and left side.

Those big paper flowers were in my stash forever and after a good coat with gesso 
they matched this project perfectly!

Fiona Paltridge

Hello scrapping friends. I am here to share with you my next creation as a Guest Designer for 13@rts for the month of July. I was keen create using one of my favourite collections the “Timeless” collection.

I wanted to achieve a very pretty girly theme for this layout so I choose two coordinating colours from the Aydeea Mist Chalk Sprays, Turquoise and Fuchsia spraying them mon the background and allowing them to drip down the page. I then added some cute little stars through the “little Stars” stencil using some of the Ayeeda Medium Modeling Paste.
I added some Gardenia flowers that I also coloured using the chalk sprays and some little white rose buds as well as some medium white roses. The chalk sprays are very good at covering anything. I even coloured some cheese cloth material to add under the flowers. I also added the Light Turquoise to the frame and toned down the Fuchsia with the Ayeeda Medium White Gesso to make a beautiful soft pink colour.
I used lots of flicks of Turquoise and Fuchsia to fill in the background with colour as well as spraying the chalks and allowing them to drip.
You can see this project coming together in the process video I have made.
I absolutely love this colour combination. I’ll have to try it again on another project. I hope you have enjoyed my project. Thank you for popping in. See you again next month.

The Happy Moment | Terhi Koskinen

Hello 13arts fan!

It's Terhi here with you today together with a layout about my favorite summer chore - lawn mowing. The smell of freshly cut grass and the way our garden looks afterwards... It's amazing. For someone else this might be hard and uncomfortable as vacuuming or cleaning windows, but I love chores like this and of course I need to capture these happy moments into my scrapbook albums.

As the photograph was green, I chose to combine green and blue toned papers form Mental Vacation collection and from Color Basic collection. 

See the grit used around the picture - simple and fun way to bring the feeling of grass onto the layout. I just spread some gel medium to the places I wanted the grit to be, then carefully added the grit and shook the looses off.

Chipboard words from Starlight collection are painted. Easy and quick technique to make them fit to any page.

How did you like it and what are your favorite chores? Have you scrapbook them?

Thanks for popping in today, we'll see you soon!

Enjoy Life with Jelissa

Good Friday 13@rts friends! How has your summer been so far?

Today I'm up on the blog with a cute little wall hanging which I altered with lots of 13@rts products. I was inspired by the pink and purple lupins I saw when I visited New Zealand during summer. A friend was telling me that one bunch of these costs a bomb in Europe, whereas these grow like weeds in the South Island! The meadows, riverbanks and roadsides would be bathed in beautiful pink and purple and needless to say, I came back with a hundred photos of the same thing.

Anyway, here is my project:

More details in the close-ups:

I first primed with a simple layer of white gesso. I then made a thick paste with it and lots of Magic Powder and scraped it over a stencil, giving my poppies a lot of texture. Then I misted and painted from the bottle with Pearl Pink and Chalk Lilac mists. This was finished off with some script stamping using Matt Paint in White, which gives a gorgeous embossed effect.

I primed this sweet flower chipboard as well and first painted a very thin layer of Raspberry matt paint. Then I scooped up some white sand grit with modeling paste and patted them down in the centre. Then it was layering more colors in Lavender matt paint and Vivid Violet paint. For the stalks, I used Green metallic paint and layered them thick in some places for a darker look.

Decorating the banner with some glass beads, silver microspheres and pink sand grit. Then adding on color with Pearl Pink and Pearl Violet mists, and also Chalk Lilac mist.

Another chipboard piece of a little bridge which I colored with Old Silver metallic paint. I also tucked in a little resist butterfly piece which I colored with Pearl Violet mist. There were also a couple of flowers in the background with I colored with Pearl Violet mist and as I let the color run with water, it separates into a gorgeous purple and teal.

So that's all I have for today. Enjoy your weekend!
