Hi everyone!!! Today I have a couple of things to share with you using amazing 13 Arts products. First up is a layout I created using this months sketch from Once Upon A Sketch. I also created a card.
Here is the sketch that inspired my layout:
The journaling theme was : 'Inspiration/I am inspired by, ect.'
I have written my journaling on the back of my layout and I thought I would quickly share it with you before I get started.
'Whenever I look at you with that beautiful big smile and your golden curls, I cannot help but smile. You are my entire world, and my biggest inspiration. You make me want to always strive to be a better person and Mom, to be happier. When I have such adorable photo's of you, or you say or do something funny, it inspires me to create.... My second love. You will always be my first! Being a Mom is all I ever hoped it would be and so much more. I always thought it would be me who inspired and encouraged you, but I never realized you would do the same for me, and I am so grateful and proud of you that you have. You are a handsome, smart, sweet little boy, and every minute that goes by I love you more!
I have painted my background using a combination of mists and inks that I have mixed together on my palette to create different colors. Originally I had not planned on adding the peach and coral touches, but I really wanted to scrap these photos and as I don't really like scrapping with red, I thought that the peach was the perfect color to tie in the photo.
Lots of close-ups:
I have brushed all my flowers with Ayeeda Gesso, and Ayeeda Paint in Gold Glitter. I love the sparkle and shabby feel this gives my work. I have also tucked beneath my papers a piece of 13 Arts chipboard, which I have placed a butterfly on.
I have used the same mix of mist and inks from my background to paint the tips of the leaves on the vine. I have also added flicks of it to blend it all together.
When I had finished adding all my elements, everything was flicked with peach and blue mists, then sprayed with Pearl Silver Mist for extra shine. I love this mist as it it gives a transparent sheen of shimmer to everything!!
The rest of the leaves on my vine were painted blue to match the flowers and background colors where they were positioned.
I used Sky Blue mist mixed with a touch of White Chalk Mist to paint all the stamped butterflies on the background.
I have used Pearl Gold Paint mixed with Acrylic Liquid Medium and a touch of White Chalk Mist, to create a water paint which I have used to paint all the resin butterfly's.
Some little bits and pieces that I have layered beneath the vine leaves.
You can also see the awesome crackled texture in 13 Arts Modelling paste here. I love how it does that!!
Next up I have a gorgeous mixed-media card that I created once again using lots of 13 Arts products!!
I have actually made this card for Aida Domisiewicz owner of 13 Arts as a Thank You for the opportunity she has given me to be on this team. I have always loved art in all forms, scrapbooking and mixed-media, but since joining this team, and using such amazing products my confidence in what I create has soared.
'You Gave Me Wings...'
I have used the stencil 'Love' from the Fly Away collection, with modelling paste on my background. When that was dry I proceeded to paint it with with a combination of ink and mist, adding lots of big splatters and beautiful stains.
I have also used a sticker from the Fly Away collection for my title.
I have layered some calico, waxed cord, and a couple of strips of washi tape in the top left corner of my page, on top of which I built up my flower cluster. I glued everything down using gel medium for added strength.
I have also added this resin piece which is available from the 13 Arts store.
I have brushed all my flowers with gesso, covering most of them, though leaving touches of their color to show through, then painted with the same mists and inks I used on the background.
I have also used a mixture of pearl gold paint, liquid medium, and white chalk mist to brush onto parts of my flowers and background for shimmer.
I finished off by adding some knotted pieces of gold thread and a few mica flakes.
That is all from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful week!
