Lori Woods- our new talented Guest Designer

To znów ten ekscytujący czas gdy możemy przedstawić nową Projektantkę! Dzisiaj chcielibyśmy Wam pokazać piękny layout stworzony przez naszą nową, utalentowaną Gościnną Projektantkę - Lori Woods z Wielkiej Brytanii. Z pewnością polubicie jej prace tak jak my, ale najpierw dowiedzmy się czegoś więcej o Lori.

It's the most exciting time of the month- introducing new Designers! Today we would like to show you a beautiful layout by our new talented Guest Designer- Lori Woods from UK! We sure you will love her projects as much as we do! But first let's learn something more about Lori. 


Hi everyone, I'm Lori from the UK and I'm so excited to be a guest on the 13arts blog! 
I've always been crafty and used to do traditional scrapbooking but since I discovered mixed media a few years ago, I haven't looked back. I love mixed media- the textures, the mess, the freedom to create outside the lines! My favourite techniques all involve texture, whether it's using stencils or paste, clay and embellishments, or fussy cutting paper designs to create focal points. My style ranges from steampunk/ industrial grunge to sometimes quite floral and girly, with a bit of clean and simple, and messy rainbows of colour in between. I like to constantly challenge myself to try new techniques and take my inspiration from the world around me.

For my first Guest Designer post, I made a layout about being free to create and be artistic. The feathers on the beautiful His & Hers collection always make me think of wings, so that's exactly what I decided to make from them. I started with a sheet of Aria- Sunny song paper, a clock chipboard from the His & Hers set and Ayeeda pearl mist in Old Gold. I used the chipboard as a stencil and sprayed the mist over the paper to both create a clock background and colour the chipboard. Using the His & Hers Butterflies stencil I added some text, then smeared some gel medium over areas of the page and sprinkled on silver mika flakes and black glitter. I cut out all the feathers from a sheet of His & Hers Feathers, scored down the midline and folded slightly to give them some shape and then started to construct the wings. I used gel medium to attach all the feathers together and finished off each wing with a metal clock embellishment. I glued down the clock chipboard onto the page, wrapped some sisal around it then stuck down the wings. A few feathers that I had left over were placed in the corner and glued down with a clock embellishment and I finished off the page with some text stickers and butterflies cut from the Aura Rosa collection.
I hope that you like my first GD 13arts layout and that it inspires you to let your creativity fly!
