My name is Lena Lindström but online I go by Wanel or LenaWanel, I'm from Sweden and have been doing different craft all my life. I found Scrapbooking in 2007 and started with mini albums and layouts. Then came cards, project life and now I mainly do mixed media. 

Hello everyone!
Here is my first blogpost as a guest designer here in the !3@rts blog! I have made a notebook for memories with lots and lots of 13@rts products of course!

I started with a coat of black gesso on the book cover, front and back and dried it. Then I watered down white gesso to make a white wash on the background. I cut a beautiful 13@rts paper in pieces and glued them to the book with gel medium. To give it i bit of water resistance I then painted the papers with clear gesso.
Then it was time for a few stencils, with modeling paste, and then some decorations made with paper clay in molds. A few bits of lace, some chipboards and some wonderful glass cabochons made the next layer. I painted everything with white gesso and when it was dry it was time for some fun with 13@rts misters.
I like to mist with a color and then add water to get my desired effect. I used mister in tree colours, pearl olive green, chalk grey and pearl gold. On the glass cabuchons I painted with gesso and then versa mark och brushed shiny powder in cyan green. I covered it with clear gesso and did a second layer of shiny powder in cyan green and gold in the gesso before it dried. The titel is misted in chalk grey and pastel white och then colored with shiny powder on versamark in the bottom of the letters and dry brushed with white in the top of them.
As a last touch when it was really really dry I did some dry brushing with white to get a few highlights.
Hope you enjoyed my project and see you next month again! Just let me know if you have any questions! Love Lena Often called Wanel online
