Happy moments - Guest Designer Di Garling

Zapraszam dziś na pierwszą inspirację naszej Gościnnej Projektantki - Di Garling z Australii. 
Di będzie nas inspirować przez 3 miesiące, a dziś zobaczymy pierwszą z jej pięknych prac.

Today it's time to present you another fabulous Guest Designer - Di Garling from Australia. She is joining us for 3 months and today you will see her first beautiful project with 13 arts products. 

Poznajmy Di:
Let's meet Di:

Hi there, my name is Di Garling & I am from Australia.
Firstly I would like to thank Aida for having me as a guest designer here at 13 Arts.
 I own & run a scrapbook shop in Australia where I  teach both scrapbooking & cardmaking & do most of the design work for my shop as well.
I am design team coordinator for 2 Crafty Chipboard & Green Tara, both are Aussie companies, 
as well as “Scrap Around the World” challenge blog.
All of this keeps me extremely busy but I wouldn't have it any other way.
My style is ever evolving, I adore colour & texture & pay great attention to detail.
I hope you enjoy my work.

Cheers Di Garling xo


Hi there, thanks for calling by. Today I have my very first reveal as a
 "Guest Designer" for 13 Arts challenge blog. 
For this layout I have used lots & lots of wonderful 13 Arts products, including.....
This fabulous "All is love" Paper range

Ayeeda Modelling Paste 
Ayeeda Paints in both Raspberry & Lemon
Ayeeda Pearl Pink Mist
Ayeeda Microbeads in two sizes
Ayeeda Flower  Stamen Sprays 
All of these amazing products are available through
their on line store, click HERE

I have used the "Ayeeda Modelling Paste" on my background to create
some lovely textures. I added some of their fabulous "Micro Beads" &
then finished off the background with a spray with the "Ayeeda Pink Pearl Mist".

Next up I applied some "Ayeeda Modelling Paste" to my chipboard to again
create some life like texture before painting the chipboard & the little resin keyhole
with the "Ayeeda Paint". I used both Matt Raspberry & Matt Lemon.

I also painted the "Ayeeda Flower Stamens" with the Matt Lemon paint as well.
Next up I finished off the chipboard buds with some of the "Finer Medium  Micro Beads"
which makes these buds look so real. 

Lastly I sprayed some Roses with the 
"Pink Pearl Mist" & some I also painted some with the "Matt Lemon Paint" 
so they would match my layout perfectly.

I will see you back here again next month with another new project & if you
would like to see more of my work, I would love you to visit my blog.

Cheers Di  xo
