"You Are Always in My Heart"

Hello 13 Arts friends. Welcome to 2019! What an amazing year we have lined up for you with new releases, tours and more Face Book Live shows!

But first, here is a little warm up. I created this little journal page while at the beach camping the other weekend. Yep it's summer here in Australia and I am relaxing as much as I can when the sun comes out!

I have a new little old photo album I am using as my art journal and this is the first page I have created in it. I'm loving the rustic black background against the light watercolours and my "Conversations on Trains" collection.

Anything grungy and a bit vintage makes me smile! I've also been exploring some hand stitching lately. I really love the rustic look it gives my art pieces.

 And of course I had to add a sticker for my title!

Thank you so much for popping in to take a look. I'll see you all again very soon xx

Blue Magnolia and Amour ideas

Dzisiaj nasze DT chciałoby Wam pokazać swoje pomysły na najnowsze kolekcje. Tym razem skupili się na kolekcjach Aidy. "Blue Magnolia" to chłodniejsze odcienie niebieskości, szarości i ecru, kolekcja doskonała zarówno do kompozycji kwiatowych jak i do prac męskich, a nawet vintage. Z kolei "Amour" to mieszanina słodkości, różu, brązu i szarości, świetna na albumy i kartki, idealna na zbliżające się Walentynki.

Today our DT members would like to show you their ides for products from our latest release. This time they focused on Aida's collections. "Blue Magnolia" has colder shades of blue, gray and ecru, This collection is perfect both for girly, flowery projects, as well as masculine pages, or even vintage. "Amour" is a mixture of sweet pink colors, some brown shades and grey wood. Perfect for albums and cards, ideal for upcoming Valentines Day.

Here are some inspirations from our team:

My Boy - Blue Magnolia Collection with Shona

Hello 13@rts Fans!! Today my layout feature the gorgeous NEW Blue Magnolia Collection and lots of other 13 Arts goodies to finish it all off. This collection is amazing and I know I will use every last scrap on projects!

I did layers of the lovely papers first and used some Clear Gesso where I knew I would be using the watercolors..just to stop it from soaking the papers. I fussy cut out pieces from the Transparent Foil Leaves on the Wall sheet to use with my clusters.

I used the Watercolor set to shade the background and color the beautiful 13 Art Flower centers to match. The watercolors are perfect for this type of shading.

I used Gel Medium to add the natural cones, 3D Balls and Gold Microspheres. Then I finished it off with some of the collection chippys for the title.

That is it for me today… Take care and happy scrapping!!

Hello dear 13@rts friends

Welcome back here on the blog and Happy New Year to all of you. I'm back today sharing my first 13@rts project for this year. I was inspired by our beautiful new Blue Magnolias Collection and fell in love with the matching A4 papers. 

At the start of every year many of us sit down and set some goals. Whilst many don't believe in New Year's resolutions no more, it's good to have a moment to think about your dreams and the things you'd like to achieve. Similarly, it does not necessarily need to be the 1st of January, but what's important is that we make a choice to live life fully everyday. When I did this layout I reminded myself to use my imagination, to embrace every day and to believe that dreams can become a reality by taking simple steps everyday.

13 arts Products used:

As you can see I started by tearing the A4 Postcard paper into an hourglass shape to create the focus of my page.

I then fussy cut some flowers from the A4 Magnolia Butterfly Collage page and wedged in-between my layers of Ecru Roots and beautiful 49 And Market Flowers.

Last but not lease I added some of my favorite 13arts stickers. I just love how easy it is to make a title and add a couple of thoughts just using a few small words.

Thank you so much for visiting us again today. I'll leave you with this: "Follow your dreams, make it happen, embrace every day and cherish every moment in between."
