Catherine Giguère

"Hello! My name is Catherine, aka cat444 on the forums. I am a 4th grade teacher and living in Quebec, Canada. I am a passionate scrapbooker for 10 years now. I am the mother of two little loves who are the main stars of my pages. I love mixed media, colours, textures and trying out new techniques and materials. I think my style is «grunge romantic» if that exist!"

I am please to present you my first layout as a Guest Designer for 13 Arts! I love so much these products! 

For my fisrt layout, I choose a paper from the new collection Starlight "Sagitarius". I loved the colors of this collection and these papers are perfect for mixed media. 

First, I apply modeling paste with the mask "Tattered Circles". Then, I did my background with textures and layers (doilies and lace) that I glued with gel medium matte. 

Then, I apply two colors of mist: Pastel Caramel and Pastel Salmon. I did some stamping and add my picture and flowers.

Material list:

Memories Captured

For this one, a used a paper from the color basic collection : Faded Blue. 

I wanted to use my favorite color of mist from 13 arts: Chalk Yellow Amber. On this one, I didn't use modeling paste, instead I use gesso with my mask .

Tiphanie Barbreau

Hi everyone,
My name is Tiphanie, I lived in Paris with my husband and my two children. I began the scrapbooking three years ago. For one year I became an addict of pages 30*30. I like working with ink and textures.

I present you my first project. I wanted to create a tag. Playing with texture is really fun.
At first, I chose papers, I distressed them and splashed with ink. 

Then I added some gesso and when it was still wet I added some glitter. Until the tag is drying I put paint on die-cuts and chipboard "fly". I didn't wait until they dry and stamped them on the glitter. After that I put it all togrether and added some embellishments."
