~~~ Happiness Cards By Patricia Basson ~~~

Hi 13Arts Friends....

For this month I made two cards using the "In Bloom" 6x6" Paper Pads. These pads make it easy to use smaller pieces of the gorgeous designs, getting all the detail without having to cut one of your larger paper sheets. Ideal for cards and Tags!











For this card I used the Greener toned paper. I layered two designs with Black paper from my stash onto a Cream Cardstock. I used the Rhapsody Stamp with Black ink to add some stamped detail. I love, love the design I get from using Black Splash! ink with a paintbrush to create the lines and splatters! Also used Silver Glitter Paint to splatter and on the die-cut leaves. The very delicate natural Exotic Flower was carefully inked with water-mist and Dark Brown Chalk mist. The title for this card is from the "Rose Field" sticker sheet. A Gray Pearl Twig and some black Tulle finishes the card.
















 This is a more feminine looking Card. I used Orange and Yellow paper. I die-cut some Doily Shapes and added one to the background. Stamped in black with the Sky Flower stamp. I mixed some Modeling Paste with Magic Powder and colored it with the Amber and Ruby Color Glow. It now has a lovely velvety look. I used it through the "Night Flowers" stencil. Also layered the papers with Black paper onto a Cream Card-stock. On this Card I left the Exotic Flower in the natural color. Added a piece of Coral Twig and also Black Tulle and black Splash! splatters. This cards title is from the "Vintage Summer" sticker sheet.

All the products used are available in the 13Arts On-line Shop...



I hope you enjoyed the visit to the Blog...Happy crafting till next time!

Watercolors meet Summer Rhapsody ~ Canvas Fun with Sandi

Hello,  everyone! 

I am up on the 13 Arts Blog today sharing a canvas featuring our new Summer Rhapsody collection along with our Watercolor Set of colors. 

What a great combo! 


I've been itching to share some work with our fabulous Watercolor set of 16 pans because they can provide such intensity of color. I went a step further and chose some colors outside my comfort zone. While so many like pink and purple, I am more of a peach, coral with aqua kind of gal. 

For fun, I chose to scrap this publicity photo of Lucille Ball that is just relaxed and funny. 



I prepared my background with some Modeling paste and MAGIC Powder to thicken it and achieve a more crackled look. Then I started with my Watercolors and created an ombre wash using the watercolors and lots of water. Colors used were Pink, Magenta, Violet and Indigo.




For my photo layers I've torn pieces from the Summer Rhapsody collection: Pink Thoughts Serendade and Music is Everywhere. I've also tucked on some embellishments from the Summer Rhapsody Ephemera pack as well as the In Bloom Ephemera Pack.




Prior to adhering the focal area, I randomly stamped my canvas background with black ink and the Magic Door Stamp. It looks great when hand stamped or when using a block. It's certain to become a fave!




I rounded out my piece with some splattering of 13 Arts SPLASH White Ayeeda Ink and White Gesso. For further dimension I added some Violet Hologram Glitter as well as some colored moss and a hat pin from my stash.

This was so fun create!
Watercolors are amazing to work with as you can achieve even the lightest of intensities if you wish!

Thanks for coming by the blog today!

"Moonlight" by Christine

Hi everyone!

It's my turn today to show you my creation. 
For this project I used an embroidery hoop
and the beautiful Under the Stars collection.

Here is my creation



I started by putting two coats of Paint Metallic! Blue then I wiped the Paint Metallic! Dark Yellow.
I cut a circle the same size as the embroidery hoop in a 6x6 pad paper from the Under the stars collection. On the background paper I put a layer of clear gesso, after that I mixed gel medium with Paint Metallic! Dark Yellow, with a silicone brush I spread the mixture on a stencil of the same collection on the background paper to make a pattern.



 I mixed a little Paint Metallic! Dark Yellow and Old Silver and I painted the star chipboards.
On the chipboard title, I put the same mixture that I used to make the pattern on the background paper. I cut flowers, a picture of crescent moon and I used the ephemeras all from the collection Under the stars.


I made a montage with all that. With gel medium I glued 3D Balls and black and gold microspheres. Then with a little watercolor I colored the 3D Balls. To finish I made a few drops with watercolor and Splash! ink white.

Ramka z motylkiem / A frame with butterfly

Cześć,

jako, że ostatnio rzadko robię coś z przedmiotów dekoracyjnych to na dziś postanowiłem zrobić kompozycję w czerni zbudowaną na bazie drewnianej ramki. 

Hey,

as I rarely do something with decorative objects lately, for today I decided to make a composition in black based on a wooden frame.



Zacząłem od pokrycia całej ramki czarnym gessem. Następnie dodałem na niej wzór z maski używając pasty stworzonej z czarnego gesso i magic powder. Na to przykleiłem płytę CD, którą również pomalowałem na czarno.

I started by covering the whole frame with a black gesso. Then I added a stencil pattern on it using a paste made of black gesso and magic powder. For this I glued a CD, which I also painted black.


Kolejnym krokiem było stworzenie kompozycji na płycie CD. Po doklejeniu każdego elementu malowałem go czarnym gesso. Pozwoliło to uniknąć ominięcia podczas malowania ciężko dostępnych miejsc. 
Po zrobieniu głównej kompozycji dodałem kilka piórek, tak by przypominało to nieco łapacz snów.

The next step was to create a composition on a CD. After gluing each element, I painted it with black gesso. This avoided bypassing hard-to-reach places when painting. 
After making the main composition, I added a few feathers to make them look like a dream catcher.


Całość wykończyłem pokrywająć projekt kolorowymi woskami, które zrobiłem mieszając bezbarwny wosk z kolorowymi shiny powders.

I finished the whole project with colorful waxes, which I made by mixing colorless wax with colorful shiny powders.

Layout with Under the stars collection by Aida


Hi everyone, the summer and holidays season is almost over, but we can always keep our memories and frame them on our scrapbooking layouts. I know that some people find it unpractical, hard to keep, but after so many years I just love making them and this is still my favorite form of art. I love to freeze at least some moments in time on my layouts, make them special. Big surface lets me enjoy my creative process. And you can keep them in albums, put them in frames or just keep them in boxes and look at them form time to time.
Today I have a photo of my son in front of Buckingham Palace, so I couldn't resist to add some Glitter ink even though it is a boy page;) 

Cześć wszystkim, sezon letni i wakacyjny dobiega końca, ale możemy zachować na dłużej nasze wspomnienia i przelać je na papier. Wiem, że niektórym ludziom duże strony ze zdjęciami wydają się niepraktyczne, ale ja po tylu latach nadal uwielbiam je robić i jest to wciąż moja ulubiona forma tworzenia. Uwielbiam w tym to, że mogę zatrzymać co najmniej kilka chwil z naszego życia i nadać im specjalne znaczenie. Duża powierzchnia pozwala mi się wyżyć artystycznie. A layouty można przechowywać w albumach, zawiesić w ramce lub po prostu przechowywać w pudełkach i od czasu do czasu je przeglądać:).

Dzisiaj mam zdjęcie mojego syna przed Pałacem Buckingham, więc nie mogłam się oprzeć, aby dodać trochę brokatowego tuszu, mimo, że jest to layout chłopięcy;)
