I started by applying clear gesso to the background paper Written Stories from the Secret Letters collection.
I then used the papers Little Secrets and A Letter To You from the Secret Letters collection plus the paper First Snow from the Winter Tales collection to layer under my photo. I distressed all the layers and inked the edges with brown ink.

I started my background by putting gel medium through the ‘Your Art stencil. 
I next added colour with the mists Pastel Cinnamon, Pastel Yellow, Chalk Yellow Amber, Chalk Dark Brown and Pearl Gold Paint. Then some white splashes with watered down gesso. I added modeling paste through the ‘Holly’ Stencil.

I coloured the chipboard with the Pearl Gold paint and then rubbed white gesso on the edges to lighten it.

I wraped the Gold Chain sting around some white wire trim to layer under my photo, I also layered doilies and chipboard amongst my paper layers. 
I added my flowers and embellishments, I used the gold paint and white gesso to add details on the flowers.
Finally I added gold sequins from the Gold Sequin String. And Cream Jagoda berries

A Fond Farewell from Jelissa

Hello 13@rts friends,

how has everyone been? Today will be my last project for 13@rts after 2 wonderful terms with Aida and the best team in the world. It is after a lot of consideration that I have to say goodbye, as you all know we have a new addition to the family and it is getting more difficult to find time for myself and for creating. All the mothers out there will know - it is almost impossible to go to the toilet some times! Hopefully things will get easier as the kids grow up and I can start creating again.

For my last post, I am sharing a project of my little girl. She has the sweetest smile that makes us unable to get angry with her when she is naughty. Yes, at 5 months old she is already up to a lot of mischief just like her two brothers.

I started with a white cardstock and primed it with 13@rts clear gesso before working on my background. Lots of layering of mediums - I first created an array of stenciled doily with a paste of Pink metallic paint and Magic powder. I then sprayed water generously to get the pink from the paste to bleed out. When this is dry, I painted on more colors with Pink pearl mist and Raspberry matt paint. After all the colors have dried, I stenciled more words with modeling paste and painted on a final layer with Chalk Dirty Pink. Lastly, this was finished with stamping to create motion on the page.

More details in the close-ups:

Straws that I made with Olga's Starlight collection papers. I brushed one end into gel medium and dipped it into gold stripes to create confetti. The Wheelies and Buttons chipboard was painted with Coral and Apricot matt paints. I had also sprinkled some gold microspheres here and there.

Left-over from one of the store's flower packs which I had torn off the centre for another project. This is perfect for staging my butterfly cut out from Secret Letters and I had painted lightly with Pearl Pink mist. I also built my paper layers from Starlight collection.

More background goodies here.

My balancing cluster create with some flowers and a cut-out butterfly from Secret Letters.

Chipboard title from 13@rts that I had left unaltered.

Hidden sentiments in the background.

That's all I have for today. I will miss all of you, and the wonderful people on the 13@rts team. Hope to see everyone again!

Terhi Koskinen | Unforgetable

Hello all!

Terhi here again with another guest designer layout for CSI: Colors, Stories, Inspiration. This is the case file 191, and I'm quite excited about it.
If you want to join the fun, log yourself in to CSI site, here (link) - of course there's a chance to win 13arts goodies.

This case file includes a sketch, too. So you need to be inspired by the moodboard picture, do your layout with the color scheme, choose at least three evidence and then the testimony, which is the theme to journal about.
I chose watercolors, animal and triangles to my evidence, and for the testimony the inspiration word "love".

First I did the background with pink watercolors, but it was so bright and strong, I gave it to my daughter who loved for the same reason I didn't like it.
Then did this with much lighter look, and decided to give this layout a very light look with pastel colors - just as in the moodboard.

Hope you feel inspired and thank you for stopping by!

Terhi xx
