Today- layout by our GD Anna Sigga

Hello Dear 13arts' Fans! 
Today we would like to show you last project made for 13arts by our talented Guest Designer Anna Sigga. This time Anna made a beautiful layout with her daughter. 


Witajcie Drodzy Fani 13arts!
Dzisiaj chcielibyśmy Wam zaprezentować ostatni projekt wykonany dla 13arts przez naszą utalentowaną Gościnną Projektantkę - Annę Siggę. Tym razem Anna przygotowała piękny layout ze swoją córeczką.


***

This layout came together so easily because of the beautiful 13 Arts papers.

The photos of my younger daughter really set the mood for this whole layout and the Color Basic papers were the perfect match.

I created the soft white background to the photo using a mask and Modeling Paste.


I added several flowers, paint and glitter to embellish the layout and I love how the glitter adds just the right amount of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by! :D

Thank you so much Anna for being our Guest and all your beautiful projects!
Dziękujemy Ci bardzo Anno, za bycie naszym Gościem i wszystkie piękne projekty!

The Measure of Color with Jelissa

Hello friends!

It's me, Jelissa, with you on the 13@rts blog today. I have a layout and some tips to share with you, and I've tried to do a few different things after a friend challenged me to go out of my comfort zone.



So what I did differently was to use bright colors instead of my usual mixture of neutral and cool colors. I've used a neutral beige as my base (because it helps to balance your colors and lets your eyes rest from all the excitement), orange and salmon as my secondary colors, and yellow as an accent. This is a general rule I use to decide how much of each color I want to have on my project - 

1) one main color (dominant color - beige)
2) 1 to 2 secondary colors (for movement and mood - orange, salmon)
3) 1 accent color (something to highlight and give it a pop - yellow)

And I use them usually in this proportion, with "Gallon" being the most and "Dollop" being the least:

"Gallon" (dominant color) -> "Quart" (secondary color 1) -> "Pint" (secondary color 2) ->
"Dollop" (accent color)

I also deliberately used a black and white photo to make the colors I have more outstanding, and I didn't count the black I used in my stamping and splatters as a color per se.



Most of my secondary colors are in the background elements, while my accent color is used in places to highlight my elements eg. photo mat to lead your eyes to the photo of my cute little boy and his long eye lashes, and the balancing cluster with the frame and the pale yellow chrysanthemum.


Another fun thing I tried out was using the Silver Glitter paint as an adhesive. I put small drops of it where I wanted my dew drops and put them on. The result is a beautiful glittery effect inside the plain looking dew drops.

So that's all I have for this month, hope you find the tips on using color useful!

LO {You are so beautiful} by Terhi

Hello 13@rts fans!
It's Terhi here today sharing a layout about my beautiful daughter.
Last summer she enjoyed the heat and sun so much I wanted to capture her while she was drying herself after swimming. She looked so happy and beautiful!


I started by adding black ink through a stencil. Then drawing some random circles to the places I knew I was going to set my pics. After gluing some pieces of papers and doilies, I sprayed mists and SPLASH Acrylic Inks
I finished the layout with the flowers and then highlighting the papers with black pen. It was super easy creation process, but I love the result and all the white space.

Thank you for popping in today!
