Winners for challenge #29 - favorite color

Hi there all!

Unbelievable! This must have been the most popular and best challenge we have ever had - we had such a huge number of entries this month, and our Design Team has been really busy to check them all out and deciding which were the best.
Because of the challenge theme, your favorite color, you all clearly worked hard and did your best and choosing winners is not an easy task to do. It's quite obvious to make stunning work if you play with a color you really love, right?
After sleepless nights (well, almost), and after very democratic voting, we finally have our amazing and talented TOP5. Thank you all for taking time and playing along with us

To chyba było najpopularniejsze wyzwanie jakie do tej pory zrobiliśmy. Dostaliśmy od Was bardzo wiele zgłoszeń i nasz Zespół miał niełatwe zadanie obejrzenia starannie ich wszystkich i zdecydowania które są najciekawsze. 
Staraliśmy się wykonać to zadanie jak najlepiej, co nie było proste, bo zgłosiliście mnóstwo przepięknych prac! Jak widać gdy mamy możliwość pracy ze swoim ulubionym kolorem każda praca wychodzi cudowna, prawda?

Be Mine with Jelissa

Hello friends!

Today it's my turn to share a little card with you. I was inspired by the colors I saw on a piece of kitchen towel that I used to clean up my mess while crafting, and it was a nice blend of lavender and blue. So I made this card with these two colors in mind.

Here it the card:

I've layered Matt Paint Lavender with Metallic Paint Blue on top. Then I wiped off with a baby wipe to reveal the colors underneath.

Some close-ups:

Creating my paper layers with some of the scrap from my paper collection Mental Vacation.

The chipboard which I altered using a paste made from Matt Paint Lavender, Magic powder and some iridescent medium. When all that is dried, I dabbed some Metallic Purple Paint for accent. Then I finished off with some Splash acrylic ink in white.

That's all I have for you today. Thanks for dropping by!

13arts book by Ingrid

Here it is, my 13arts book!
It contains the colors of all my 13arts paints.
I find it very handy when I need a matching color for my projects.

My book got a coat of gesso first.
Layered the frame, paintbrushes, the ribbon jets and the letters.
Made a mix of gesso and glass filler and randomly applied it on the book.
Also added some plastic filler.
Once dry, it was time for all the paints.

After all the paints I gave the whole book a touch of gesso.
I gave it a final touch with some splatters.

 Some great texture from the ribbon jets and the glass filler!

All the paper flowers were also colored with the paints.

Added some glass pearls.

The lovely metal frame.

And here is a peek on two of my pages.

Enjoy your day!

Melenia's last project

Hello, 13 Arts Fans!
Melenia with you, for a last time as a member of the 13 Arts Design Team...

Today I would like to show my first canvas.
It was made to be given as a gift to a very beautiful lady,
whom I admire and am grateful to.

There it is

The canvas was meant to be dramatic, vibrant, bold and strong,
just like the person who is already sent to.
The colour combo I chose was purple-gold-brown-lilac.

As you see there's lots of layers, different material and mixed media techniques.
I admit I was so excited while I was putting it together that I think I overloaded it!

Everything single detail was glued with generous amounts of  Gel Medium!

That's all from me! I hope you were inspired by my projects with 13 Arts wonderful media!

Destination- a layout by our GD Rikki Graziani

It's time for a final post from our wonderful Guest Designer - Rikki Graziani! Today she's sharing her idea how to convert the cut out pattern paper into a layout.

Nadszedł czas na finałowy post od naszej cudownej Gościnnej Projektantki- Rikki Graziani! Dzisiaj podzieliła się z nami swoim pomysłem jak zamienić pozostałości pociętego papieru w layout. 


Good Morning Rikki here today with my final post for 13@rts GDT, such a sad day but all good things must come to an end....

Do you remember in my last months post I say I would convert the cut out pattern paper into a layout? I am here to share with you the final result.

Remember this?

Just by adding water to the page and the Ayeeda Inks to a plastic bag you have an instant background...

Dont forget to custom your wood veneers to go with your layout.

Papier "Cinnamon/Black"

Tusz wodny - Bordeaux

Ayeeda Ink - Bordeaux

Well I hope I have inspired you, thanks for the opportunity to share with you my 13 @rts experience .

Till next time, have a creative day.


Thank you Rikki for all your beautiful projects and being our Guest!
Dziękujemy Rikki za wszystkie Twoje piękne projekty i bycie naszym Gościem!
