Winter Time layout with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, lovely people! 

This is the time of year when we are experiencing a transition from one season to the next. I decided to sprinkle in a little Winter vibe. 

Sandi here sharing my November solo blog post with a mix of the Bella collection mixed with the Dreamland collection and the awesome moose photo from the November mood board. 

As always, I prepped my paper with 13 Arts Clear Gesso and did some Stencil work with both the Adorable Circles Stencil and the  Abstract Flowers Stencil.  really like that the 13 Arts modeling paste is pure white. That way I can either color it or not and still have the lovely white dominating the project. 



For my papers I've used the Bella Ciao Paper 12x12  and the Dreamland By the Fireplace Paper 12x12 .  These two collections really play nicely together. My fussy cut ephemera is from the Dreamland Ephemera Pack
As I worked I also used some Rice paper from the Dreamland Rice Paper



My photo layers were from both collections paper pads as noted below in the materials list.
I've included the wreath chipboard from the Dreamland Chipboard 6x6 and painted them white for a frosty look. 



Here is a nice close-up of the Abstract Flowers Stencil highlighted with Indigo Chalk Mist



After tucking in various embellishments and epehemera, I did some focal highlighting with the Indigo Chalk mist. When that was dry, I adhered all my 3D balls (see links below.)
The burlap ribbon is from my stash but provided a nice texture to my piece. 



Here is a look at the splattering done as my last step. You can also see the random stamping done earlier in the process using the Wonderland Stamp and black archival ink.

End of Summer layout by Moira Gilowey


Hello creative friends.
Today I am sharing a layout with you using the beautiful End of summer collection.
Who doesn't love what Summer brings ... the smell of the ocean, fun in the sun, ice-cream, 
spending time with good friends ... and we don't want it to end!
 I felt that this photograph shows exactly how Summer feels.


I prepared the background of the layout by stamping around the edges of the paper and then 
stenciling here and there for texture.  When the modeling paste was dry, I applied white gesso,
 then Golden Calcite Color Glow mixed with gel medium and then black ink with gel medium
 around the edges of my layout with a spatula, drying completely between each layer.
 



I also added some flower stenciling around the area where my main composition would be and then,
when the modeling paste was still wet, I added copper glitter to the top of the paste and set it aside
 to dry completely.


Once I had added my photo and embellishments, I added amber and green watercolor
 around the composition.


I hope that this has inspired you to create your own project with the amazing 13arts papers
 and products.

Birthady cards with Bella by Monika Januszewska-Rosik

Witajcie! Tym razem przygotowałam dla Was dwie kartki urodzinowe z wykorzystaniem kolekcji Bella, która jest moim zdaniem niezwykle kobieca. 

Hello! This time I have prepared two birthday cards for you using the Bella collection, which in my opinion is extremely feminine.

Gdy tworzę kartki, lubię myśleć o osobie, dla której powstają. Pierwsza z nich powstała dla mojej przyjaciółki, która bardzo lubi podróże. Elementy wycięte z Art Booka oraz Ephemery pozwoliły mi na uzyskanie przestrzennej kompozycji. Jak widzicie Bellę możemy z powodzeniem łączyć z elementami z kolekcji Travel the World.

When I create cards, I like to think about the person they are created for. The first one was created for my friend who likes traveling very much. Elements cut from the Art Book and Ephemera allowed me to obtain a spatial composition. As you can see Bella can be successfully combined with elements from the Travel the World collection.


Tu Bella w nieco energiczniejszej odsłonie. Kartka powstała dla mojej mamy pasjonatki kwiatów doniczkowych, róż i wszystkiego co zielone. Tłem kartki jest mozaika z kafelków wyciętych z Art Booka, podklejonych na kosteczkach dystansowych.

This is Bella in a slightly more energetic version. The card was created for my mother, who is passionate about potted flowers, roses and everything green. The background of the card is a mosaic of tiles cut from Art Book, glued on distance pads.
