Second meeting with Shilpa!

Czas na kolejny projekt od naszej utalentowanej - Shilpy! Tylko spójrzcie na ten piękny wpis do artjournala. 

Time for the second project by our talented Guest - Shilpa! Just look at these beautiful artjournal pages.  

>>> <<<

Hello Everyone, I am back with another mixed media project with 13Arts.
I've created Art Journal spread using Fiona's Strength in numbers and Aida's Art Journey collection
I have created different layers of texture on these pages.
Beautiful words from Art Journey collection stickers inspired me with this art journal spread.

I glued man's face and paintbrush sticker on opposite sides of pages. To create texture, I used 13Arts Modelling paste through Crackle stencil twice, using 2 designs from stencil, as I wanted both designs to match with pictures.
Further, Applied Clear gesso to whole surface and when it dried , started to build colors.
I spritzed Yellow and brown chalk inks. Dried the surface with heat tool. I stamped texture and text with black archival ink. I used Blue Green shiny powder mixed with clear gesso for my next layer.
Lastly I glued silver microsphere randomly on the design with gel medium.

I loved to play with 13Arts' Artistically designed papers and stickers... and their Chalk Inks,Shiny color, microsphere gave beautiful effect to the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by, see you next month with more projects.

Art journal - man's world

Cześć wszystkim,

gdy za oknem buro i ponuro, brakuje kolorów i słońca, to przychodzi moment gdy nic się nie chce i zaczyna brakować pomysłów. Na taką okazję dobrze mieć art journal. 

Ja wziąłem swój i usiadłem przy biurku. Zacząłem bez żadnego planu i pomysłu. I tak powstały te strony.

Hi everyone,

when outside is gloomy, world is without color and sun, it's moment when nothing is wanted and missing ideas. For that moment is good to have art journal.

I took mine and I sat down at my desk. I started without any plan and idea. So these pages were created.

Strony journal'a pokryłem clear gesso, nakleiłem na nie tagi. Tagi pokryłem białym gesso i pobieliłem nieco strony journala. Z maski dodałem wzór w kilku miejscach.

A journal pages I covered with clear gesso and I glue it a tags on one page. Tags I covered with white gesso and I whitewashed a little pages. I added a pattern from the stencil.

Wybrałem kolor brązowy w połączeniu z yellow amber. Polubiłem tusze wodne za to, że używając jednego medium można uzyskać kilka odcieni jednego koloru. Dodałem kilka ciemniejszych plam z mgiełki w kolorze ciemnego brązu.

I chosen a mix two colors: brown with yellow amber. I like a water inks for effect different shades one color from only one ink. I added few stains with chalk mist in dark brown color.

Our talented Guest- Irena Vohlídková

Dzisiaj chcielibyśmy podzielić się z Wami pięknym layoutem od naszej utalentowanej Gościnnej projektantki - Ireny Vohlídkovej - Irisiki. Znana jest także pod nickiem ScrapLady. Iriska tworzy świetne, nowoczesne prace i bardzo się cieszymy, że możemy podzielić się z Wami jej twórczością. 

Today we'd like to show you a beautiful layout from our new, talented Guest Designer- Irena Vohlídková - Iriska. She's also know as ScrapLady. Iriska makes lovely modern projects and we're really happy that we can share her beautiful art with you. 

Crafting is my favorite hobby. I am creating cards, albums, layouts all the time. Scrapbooking, Cardmaking and a Project Life - that's my life! I am also organizing a lot of creative workshops and I am also mentoring them, organizing crafting weekend events, creating a guideline for creative websites, I am also a member of design teams and currently working (for the 3rd year) as a blogger for Sizzex company. An author of Cardmaking and minialbums book, made in 2013 and also co-writer of Scrapbooking - the paper with a story book, made in 2015 thanks to Zoner Press publishing house. I rarely attend TV shows focusing on crafting. I am a packed sugar collector, traveling lover, passionate blogger, I love challenges and I have discovered that I would have never lived alone in an island - I need my family and active people living around me!

Hello everyone!
Thank you for the opportunity to be here with you and have the chance to share some of my crafting products. I like to create albums and this layout is one of them that are included in “Dovolená 2017” album. You have to admit that the best holiday is to be spent with your friend! 😊 This holiday has been spent in Ireland and it’s our third holiday spent together. It was awesome as every year before and we enjoy it as much as we could, this album can’t describe all the good things that happened to us.

I prefer to work with water-soluble colours, you can make great watercolour magic! I like all the watercolour techniques and for this layout I’ve used the best powder colours by Rainbow color. I have used a watercolour paper 300g/m2, that I sewed black thread by the sewing machine in two directions. I mixed powdered colour with water on the waterproof pad and put it on the sewed place. Threads can make an effect of very nice colourful spots. I used black and red colour. Colours have been put on a layout and I let them to dissolve and then the very interesting surface has been made. I’ve also added some of the colourful spots via brush.

I’ve used applicator for the dry surface to put the colour on the paper with stencils.

I also used photos from the Instax printer and they have defined size, so I’ve used it for the layout. I used few layers of photos and added stencil cutouts and titles. 

The watercolour paper was in A3 size and it was smaller than a size of a scrapbook page, so I’ve undelayed it with colourful paper. I’ve made a double line on a circuit, I really love this detail. I couldn’t add more text to the layout, so I’ve used letters sticked on the circuit.
Crafting is a happiness!

"An Eventful Day" Art Journal Page by Fiona

Hello my 13@rts friends. Fiona here with you today to share an art journal page I have created in one of my favourite "old" art journal books.

This page was free from any thought .... I just chose half a dozen of my favourite coordinating 13Arts mediums and made some mess!!!

I enjoyed the layering ... I enjoyed squirting water on the page to see what it would do. It was so much fun.

I scraped and scribbles away until I thought "Hmmmmm best I stop now before I ruin it" That is pretty much the sum total of my process.

it is also one of my most favourite colour combinations to use. I just love yellow, red, pink and orange together. It makes my heart sing!

'Sweet' LO by Christina

Hello!!!!This is Christina today with you and it's time for my new colourful LO with the beautiful "Strength in Numbers" collection!

First of all I have to say that this time of the year I really need to use more colour on my projects , so I decided to use this colourful collection as my base for my ''Sweet'' LO. 
The first step was to prepare my paper... So I stuck some paper together and used some white gesso to thicken my paper.

 Then, I used some lavender and green pastel mist to have an awesome backround. Of course , it was time for some more texture , so I used some modeling paste through a stencil here and there....
I really like the combo of these two colours...

I painted some of  my chipboards in metallic violet and  then I used some liqued medium with some pink velvet shiny powder for extra shiny look. I did the same on some other chippies but using some black gesso and pink silver shiny powder. At the end I added some more glitter on my chipboards with glitter paint.
 The final step was just the decoration. I have used a lot of flowers , some ribbon and some lace.. 
As you can see , I have also added some black gesso here and there  with a text mask to have more interest on my page....

                 So , That's from me today.... Hope you like my LO and have been inspired....
                                                                 See you soon....
