Life is beautiful

Hello dear 13@rts friends 

 It's Anguree here with you and I am back on the blog today sharing this layout I created using a couple of products from our New Collections.
I am absolutely in love with the new emphemra pieces. Not only are the super fine, but gorgeous. As you can see I added different flowers around the photo and amongst my flower clusters.

To add texture and some Ecru roots and Powertex Balls.

Last but not least, I finished it off using 13@rts stickers.

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

Till then, take care and have fun.

~~ Canvas by Patricia Basson ~~
July 2019

Good day crafting friends....
Today I am sharing a colorful canvas created for 13Arts as my July Design Team post. Drawing inspiration from the awesome colours of the Challenge of the month I kept to the Blues and Yellows.  Hope you have entered already? There are still a few days left to do so....

I used the Swirl Stencil and Modeling paste to add a little detail to the corners. Also scrapped the palette knife clean on the opposite corners to get some texture there as well. I sprayed the canvas with the Yellow chalk Ink. The Dusty Attic frame was gesso'd and painted with the Vivid Yellow Paint and added to the canvas. After adding the flowers and pieces of the Twig I added more color with Yellow Lemon Rainbow Color.  

I layered a wooden Wing set that was painted with Emerald Color Glow and Blue Metallic Paints with another frame, some yellow colored Gauze and a Resin Face. I colored the frame, face and resin swirls with Navy Blue Splash Ink. I just love how the ink reacts so differently when water is added. On the frame and swirls I left it concentrated whilst I sprayed some water and used a wet wipe on the face. It gives a softer, almost chalk-like finish. I also used the wipe to color the edges and corners of the canvas. Also added splashes with the Splash brush and Splash. 

Some white roots, a few stars elements from the New Under the Stars A4 element Sheet and a little gold leafing and my canvas was done!

Thank you for your visit and please find these products and many more in the 13arts Online Store....

A vintage tag by Marta

Tu Marta, dzisiaj z tagiem vintage. Pobawiłam się trochę nowościami, jak np. ephemerą i połączyłam ją z moimi dawnymi ulubieńcami jak Shiny Powder czy mikrokuleczki.

Gorgeous Card and Tag Set with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, everyone! 
Sandi here with you today sharing a sweet card and tag set created with products from the new In Bloom and Under the Stars collections as well as some faithful oldies. 

For the card front, I've used strips of 2 different papers (Magnolia and  Bees and Blossoms) from  In Bloom collection and used both side A and B to create 4 patterns. This is a great way to create cards from your scraps although truthfully, I used my new 12x12 sheets because my card is 6.5 inches long.  And just because I wanted to play! 

After securing the 4 strips, I started selecting products for the focal area of the card, starting with a clock from the His and Hers Chipboard Set which I altered with the Patina Bronze Mist and highlighted with Old Gold Pearl Mist and Brown Water Ink.  While I was doing the clock, I also altered a chipboard flourish from the new Summer Rhapsody Chipboard. The Beautiful title chipboard is from the same set but I chose to leave that piece unaltered. 

I am really enjoying the new ephemera packs and selected some gorgeous pieces from the In Bloom set for the card and from Under the Stars for the tag. The little Bees are elevated with foam squares.  For a little additional texture, I added some floral and decorative pieces from the 13 Arts Flowers

I've used very little wet media on the card and tag set except for lightly dabbing with white gesso and splattering with my Patina Bronze Mist

The chipboard flourish from the Summer Rhapsody Chipboard is so delicate and gorgeous!
At the base of my card, I've adhered a phrase from our new Black Chipboard Words set.

Here is just a side view to show you some of the layers.

Next I created this simple tag to co-ordinate with my card.
For a smashing tag every time, use 3 layers and do a bit of old school punch work at the bottom.
Then add a few layers of ephemera and a gorgeous tulle bow.

I really wanted to highlight the Bumble Bees, so I used that as the top layer of my tag.
Then added some ephemera from Ephemera pack ~ Under the Stars and a few flowers.

Lastly, I dabbed with white gesso and splattered with my Patina Bronze Mist. Added my tulle bow for the crowning touch.

Now I am all set for the next time I am needing a handmade card!
