Urodzinowe pudełko z kartką / A birthday box with card


tym razem razem mam dla Was projekt zupełnie niemediowy - zestaw urodzinowy, kartka i pudełko, wykonane z papierów 13 Arts.


this time I have for you a project without mediums - a birthday set, card with box, which I've made with 13 Arts papers.

Jako, że zestaw przygotowany był dla dziewczynki to wybrałem oczywiście różowy zestaw papierów. Mimo, że każdy papier pochodzi z innej kolekcji to uważam, że wspaniale do siebie pasują.

As the set was prepared for a girl I chose, of course, a pink set of papers. Althought every paper comes from a different collection, I think they fit together perfectly.

Kartkę i pudełko udekorowałem w podobnym stylu używając tekturek, kwiatów oraz motyli. Całość dopełniło kilka perełek w płynie.

Card and box I decorated in similar style using a chipboards, flowers and butterflies. At the end I added few drops from liquid pearl.

A Vintage Art journal

Hello dear 13arts friends

I am back on the blog today sharing an art journal I created for you.  Sometimes we just need to go a bit out of the box and create something we don't do every day so I figured why not, it's been ages since I last did one :)

13 @rts Products used:

I started by covering my pages in clear gesso and continued with layers of paper, gel medium, modelling paste and black gesso.

As you will see I chose rich browns for my background, but then decided to add the indigo to createca bit of contrast.

I continued with more layers of different materials, paper strips and gel medium prior adding my little picture from our Conversations on Trains Collection, stickers and a couple of flowers from 49And Market.

Thank you so much for joining us at 13arts today. I hope you enjoyed your time here and will be visiting us again in the near future.

Till next time have fun and enjoy your creative journey.

Memories ~ Nostalgic Layout with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, 13 Arts fans! 

Sandi here with you today sharing a layout I created focused around an old photo of my uncle and I at my grandparents farm. I was a city girl (still am) and had great respect for all their animals.  Respect and fear, LOL. I still remember being afraid this old Bossy cow was going to trample all over me. But it made for a great photo opportunity for my mother! 

Anyway, my intention was to stick with some green to represent the fields where we stood along with some blue for the sky and then lots of browns, amber and so forth to represent the cow. However, as I played around with my paints, I decided to throw in some pink to represent myself. 

Here is a little collage of photos showing you the layout before I added my embellishments and photo. I firstly primed my Paper Blue Nights ~ Blue Magnolia with Clear Gesso and then covered 3/4 of the paper with a mix of White Gesso and MAGIC Powder to achieve a bit of crackle. I allowed that too dry overnight before proceeding. I did some random stamping with the Numbers Stamp  and then some stenciling with the script portion of the Dandelions Stencil and some Modeling Paste.

All my paint colors are all listed below in products used but are comprised of mostly some Rainbow powders, Ayeeda Water Ink and some Splash products. 

While my paints were drying, I altered the large clock chipboard from Chipboard HIS HERS Remastered with Rainbow Color Brown and the leaves from the Chipboard Set Vintage Summer A4 with the Olive Green Ayeeda Ink. The title piece was left bare and is included in the Rose Fields Chipboard Set 12x12.

I layered my photo on torn and distressed pieces of the Paper Postcards ~ Blue Magnolia and matted my photo with BLUE MAGNOLIA A4 Butterfly collage. The little colorful scrap under the clock was my original test scrap of paper and I decided to include it for interest.

Before adhering the focal area, I added some Sisal ecru for texture and a few fussy cut florals from BLUE MAGNOLIA A4 Butterfly collage as well as some three dimensional flowers. I tucked in a paper doily and scrap of leaves from my stash. Since this was an outdoor scene, I included the bees from Metal Insects and a fussy cut butterfly also from BLUE MAGNOLIA A4 Butterfly collage.

I finished off with some paint splattering, dabs of watered down white gesso and some of the SPLASH Old Gold Glitter Ink and 13 Arts SPLASH White Ayeeda Ink.

Here you can see a little of the crackle I was trying to achieve.
This project got a little more colorful than I intended but my husband says he likes it and I hope that you will as well.

13 Arts Products used: 
Clear Gesso

Thank you so much for coming by the blog today!
I hope you will be inspired to create.
See you next time!

Retro box with roses by Monika

Witajcie, tu Monika. Na dzisiejszą inspirację przygotowałam drewnianą szkatułkę oklejoną tylko jednym arkuszem papieru. Jak widzicie nadal tnę papiery z kolekcji Rose Fields - jednej z moich najbardziej ulubionych kolekcji do tej pory.

Hello, Monika here. For today's inspiration, I prepared a wooden casket with only one sheet of paper. As you can see, I still cut papers from the Rose Fields collection - one of my most favorite collections so far.

Po oklejeniu szkatułki papierem, na całość nałożyłam preparat do spękań. W spękania wtarłam farbkę Vivid Vintage Americano. W ramce z żywicy umieściłam różę wyciętą z arkusza Rose Fields A4 Elements.

After covering the casket with paper, I applied the crackle medium. In the cracks I used Vivid Vintage Americano paint. In the resin frame, I placed a rose cut from the sheet of  Rose Fields A4 Elements.

"Imagine" Canvas -by Christine

Hi everyone!
Welcome to the blog.

Today I show you my first creation of June, I did a little canvas.
I took a step by step photos to show you how I did it.

Some close-ups

I started by putting a layer of white gesso all over the canvas to be able 
to work the background colors.

Then I spread the modeling paste on a stencil with a silicone brush, then I powder some white embossing powder that I heat with the heat gun.

I added some color on the background with watercolor.

I cut the flowers and the owl in the A4 papers of the Magnolia Blue collection.

I cut leaves in the transparent foil "Leaves"

On the chipboard I put a layer of white gesso and then I put the watercolor.
I stick the owl in the frame chipboard.

On the wings I put a layer of white gesso and black acrylic paint diluted with water.

With gel medium I glued 3D Balls, microspheres, glitter flakes ......

And to finish I put a little color with the foam here and the to give a little relief.

I used:

I hope you liked it.
Thank you for your visit!
