Glass collage | Terhi Koskinen

Hello 13arts fans!

Terhi here with my new passion called: Shiny Powders.
Shiny Powders can be used in thousands of ways, today I'm showing you one simple way to add sheen and nice colors to your project.

As I love the shimmering effect of the powders, I decided to give it a try on a glass. I had some left over glass pieces and first I created a little composition of different embellishments on the glass. The composition is made with chipboards, metal embellies and different fabrics, all adhered with gel medium.

Shiny Powders needs something to be adhered to. So I made a mix of Liquid Acrylic Medium and Shiny Powders and the started to add the color on the glass. With Shiny Powders the options to try new techniques are almost limitless - this is just one simple way to use them.

I made different mixes to each color: blue, turquoise and green.
Loving the way they spread on each other! Just be careful when adding, many thin layers and small amount of liquid is better than one big splash of color. This was so much fun to play!
If you have any questions about using this technique, don't hesitate to leave a comment here.

Hope you liked it!

Thank you for stopping by!

Terhi xx

Layout "Forever" By Lilibleu

Hello 13 Arts Fans !!

This morning, let me present you a new project: I chose to make a page on Christmas theme with the very lovely Winter Tales collection

Ce matin, je passe vous présenter un nouveau projet : j'ai choisi de réaliser une page sur le thème de Noël avec la très jolie collection Winter Tales.

To illustrate this theme, I used a picture I found on Pinterest some times ago and which for me evokes perfectly the magic of Christmas!

Pour illustrer ce thème, j'ai utilisé une photo que j'ai trouvée il y a quelque temps sur Pinterest et qui pour moi évoque parfaitement la magie de Noël!

I started to put a thin layer of Medium Acrylic Liquid to protect my paper.

J'ai commencé par passer une fine couche de Medium Acrylic Liquid pour protéger mon papier.

Around my photo and my flowers, I put a thick layer of Gel Medium Transparent on which I sprinkled Glitters White and Glass Microspheres to give my page a frosted aspect.

Autour de ma photo et de mes fleurs, j'ai utilisé du Gel Medium transparent en couche épaisse sur lequel j'ai saupoudré des Glitters White et Glass Microspheres pour donner un aspect givré à ma page.

The "Forever" title is first painted white. I then covered it with Splash! Glitter Bronze and to finish, I ironed with Pearl Olive ink brush.

Le titre "Forever" est d'abord peint en blanc. Je l'ai ensuite recouvert de Splash! Glitter Bronze et pour finir, j'ai appliqué de l'encre Pearl Olive au pinceau.
