Green and blue love

Cześć wszystkim,

dziś postanowiłem Wam pokazać pracę, którą jakiś czas temu zacząłem, a która nie wyszła tak jak chciałem. Szkoda było ją wyrzucić, więc przeleżała trochę czasu na półce, aż w końcu trafiła na biurko po raz drugi.

Hello everyone,

today I decided to show you a project that I started some time ago and which didn't work out as I wanted. It was a shame to throw her away, so she lay there for some time on the shelf, until she finally hit the desk for the second time.

Wszystkie elementy, które nakleiłem oraz mikrokulki pokryłem warstwą białego gesso. Jako, że praca była wcześniej kolorowana z użyciem rainbow color duo w kolorze pistacjowej zieleni to całość nabrała lekko zielonego koloru. Postanowiłem więc utrzymać projekt w tej tonacji.

All the elements that I attached and the microspheres covered with a layer of white gesso. As the work was previously colored with the use of rainbow color duo in pistachio green, the whole thing took on a slightly green color. So I decided to keep the project in this tone.

Kilka miejsc wzbogaciłem o nieco mocniejsze barwy używając metalicznych farb Color Glow wymieszanych z płynnym medium akrylowym. Dodałem dwa kolory - emerald i tourmaline. Szczerze się przyznam, że wcześniej nie pomyślałbym nawet o takim połączeniu kolorystycznym.

I enriched a few places with slightly stronger colors using Color Glow metallic paints mixed with a liquid acrylic medium. I added two colors - emerald and tourmaline. I honestly admit that I wouldn't even think about such a color combination before.

Travel inspired Cards

Hello dear friends

I am back on the blog today sharing these cards I made using the new Travel The World Collection. My oh my it is just so beautiful. Then, I can't help to love all of our new collections. They are just so stunning, I have trouble picking which to use.

I  just love the ocean colours and travel theme. It combines 2 of my favourite things in the world, so for today, I made some cards using 2 sheets of  paper in this collection, in combination with pieces from the Ephemera Pack.

As you can see, I cut my paper panels, so I could use both sides of the This Moment Paper and layered it with double sided foam to create a bit more depth and texture.

I then used lace, Dusty Attic Chipboard and various pieces of the Travel the World Ephemera pack to embellish each card. Next I added a flower cluster to each card.

Last but not least I finished it off with my favourite 13@rts sentiment stickers.

Thank you so much for visiting us today. I hope you love the new collections just as much as I do and if you haven't seen them yet,make sure you go and check it out on our website. You can find all I used in the product list above.

Till next time, have fun and take care.

Bondi - Layout created with "Down Under" collection by Aida

Hi everyone, as you know we have just released 4 new collections, but we also have released one special limited collection especially dedicated for our friends who live in Australia and New Zealand,  and also for everybody who just love those two countries. I am definitely one of them :)  Down Under collection includes 12x12" papers, corresponding A6 paper set, 12x12" chipboard set and two stencils. Very soon a small corresponding mini watercolor palette is coming to our store, as a part of this collection. The colors you can already see on this layout :)  

I will be travelling Down Under again soon, so if you would like to meet me, join the classes and get a chance to work with my new products, there are still some spots left.
I will be in New Zealand in late May 
and in Australia in early June: 

And today I want to show you my simple mixed media layout with the photo I took last year on Bondi beach. 

I used new Down Under collection products:

~~~ My Girl ~~~
February 2020 Design Team Page by Patricia Basson

They say "All good things come to an End...." and sadly this will be my last post as an 13@rts Designer. I had the best time designing with AmAzing products!!!! Thank you for having my Aida and all the very best to the new Team members....

For this page I used two sheets from the Summer Rhapsody collection. One was used for the background and the other torn and used on the sides. I distressed all the edges and painted them with Black Rainbow Duo mixed with water. Also used Clear Gesso before all the paints. 
I mixed Yellow Amber Rainbow Duo with Modeling Paste and put it through the Vintage Wreath Stencil. 

For the background colour I sprayed the Yellow Amber and Pearl Black mists. I also used Amber Color Glow with water...It is the pinkish glow one can see in the photos!
The net Chipboard was painted with black Gesso.

I sprayed the chipbard with Pearl Black Mist and embossed it with Deep Sea, Rocky Road and Vintage Beeswax Embossing Powders. The title was sprayed with Yellow Amber Mist.
I added some flowers and Black Lux Crystals and used the Splash Brush to add splatters of the Silver Glitter.

All of the products and many more are available in the 13@rts on-line shop

If you're alone, I'll be your shadow.
 If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. 
If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow.
 If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile. 
But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me.

Life is a Verb ~ Layout with Sandi Clarkson

Good morning, creative friends! 
Sandi here with you today sharing my most recent layout for the 13 Arts blog.

I had been feeling inspired to work with the "B" side of Paper Birds and flowers paper, In Bloom
That yellow damask-like paper is so gorgeous! I had planned to use that along with predominately teal. But as always with the creative process, I decided to add in some areas of purple along with the teal from the Watercolor set 16 pans - set of watercolors to pull out the purple in my granddaugher's shirt. 

I also fussy cut some of the peach flowers from the In bloom Elements A4 sheet. So with the yellow, teal, purple and peach, I had to be very careful not to get a pastel Spring-y effect. I tried to accomplish that by using some more intense shades of the watercolors by not adding as much water.  At that point it was lovely but I wanted "rust" to ground it. So, taking the easy way, I sprinkled some of my brown Rainbow Color Brown and then spritzed it with water. Some areas are still powdery but actually since I like texture, that is more than fine by me!

As usual, I first coated my papers with Clear Gesso, then added some Gesso white - acrylic primer 500 ml around my focal area. I did some random stamping with brown ink using the Avril stamp A7. Next I created some texture by pushing Modeling Paste through the Stencil masks HIS TIME. This is when I began doing my color work. What I really like about our modeling paste is that it stays a bright white unless you have already mixed it with color.

Then I began adding layers to my photo with the paper elements below. I am proudest of my fussy cut blooms because it's not my favorite thing to do when I'm in the midst of a project. That is what is nice about our ephemera packs! However, fussy cutting is fun when you are just relaxing and maybe watching TV, movie or a video.

I finished with a few embellishments, some 3D balls, Ecru Sisal, rhinestones from my stash and then some splattering with my paint colors and Gesso white.

I hope you like it!
