“Moment in Time” - a layout by Moira Gilowey

It's time to introduce you to our next Guest Designer - Moira Gilowey. Here's what Moira told us about herself and there is also her first beautifu guest project! 

My name is Moira and I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town in South Africa. I have been scrapbooking for just over eight years and, although I do love paper crafting, I also LOVE mixed media and, if I can combine the two, I am a very happy scrapbooker. My go to are vintage and botanical tones, but there are so many products with bright colours out there that are really hard to resist. I am so excited to be included as a Guest Designer for 13 Arts this quarter and to play with their stunning papers and products. I hope that you will enjoy my first project and look forward to sharing with you again soon. Until next time!


For my first project as Guest Designer for 13 Arts, I created this single page layout using the gorgeous papers from the Rosalie collection. I love the soft, vintage tones of these papers which were perfect for this photograph of my mother taken many years ago. I included elements from the Ephemera pack as well as the transparent foil which I cut out and adhered to different areas of my layout.

I tore a piece of corrugated board and adhered this to the left side of my layout and then painted it with a light layer of white gesso.

Stenciling was added to the layout with white modeling paste. I mixed some Tiger Eye Color Glow paint powder to modeling paste and then added some additional stenciling. The leftover brown modeling paste was brushed onto the corrugated board. The chipboard was painted with the Tiger Eye paint powder.

Once the layout was complete, I brushed some of the same paint powder as well as Old Gold Glitter around the composition for depth and definition.

I hope that you enjoyed my first project and look forward to sharing with you all again soon.

Until next time!
