Hello there 13@rts fans!
I'm so happy to be here today to share a project I made using lots of new products from 13@rts. I also have a step-by-step photo tutorial to show the different ways these products can be used.
I'm starting with "Pegasus" paper from the Starlight collection designed by the fabulous Olga Heldwein. I'm using it for my background and I have also used her "Hearts Stencil" to create a bit of contrast and texture on the black paper. Then I stuck on my very simple paper layers, which is the "Orion" paper from the same collection.
The fun begins as I start adding on colors. First I used Mahogany Matt Paint to highlight the edges of the paper layers, followed by misting with Chalk Turquoise Light Mist and watering it down. Then I splattered Mahogany Matt Paint, Gold Pearl Paint, with little flicks of Splash! Ink in Turquoise.
To add more contrast, I applied a very thin coat of modeling paste over a stencil.
In this step, I'm altering a piece of chipboard. To prime the surface, I used black gesso instead of my usual white one because I really want to see some contrast. ThenI mixed the new Magic Powder from 13@rts with Gold Pearl paint to create a paste that I applied over the same Hearts stencil in my background. After that, I applied some Splash! turquoise ink with my fingers. I had some left over paste so I used those on my layered papers and sprinkled different colored sand grit and microspheres on top for a nice textural effect.
And this is the result when dried.
And this is the finished layout after embellishments:
I forgot to take the pictures for the alteration of this chipboard title. But basically, I primed it with black gesso followed by a generous layer of metallic paint in Turquoise. Then I mixed matt Turquoise paint with Silver Pearl paint and brushed over the second layer. When all is dried, I used a wet brush to remove some parts of the lighter color to reveal the darker layer beneath. The result is a nicely layered color with dimension. You can also see the part where I added my extra Gold paste with the sand grit in light blue and natural colors.
And that is all I have for today. Have a great week ahead!
