Workshop with 13arts in Madrit

Hello everybody! I'm so excited to share with you that I was invited to teach a workshop in Madrid Spain during a fabulous event called Zumo Creativo hosted by Lola Barbosa!
I'd like to thank you all for joining in my workshop. The weekend was full of crafting, new friends and fun! 
It was so nice to meet you all!

During the workshop we made an art journal spread, full of textures and colors, filled with amazing products by 13arts!
My project was in Mixed-Media and Vintage style including techniques based on gesso, modeling paste, stencils and purple colors to get beautiful, dramatic dark look.
I showed many awesome ways to create textures.
Of course, all products of 13arts!

Art journaling is play, exploration and experimentation wrapped into one.
Art Journal is for soul expression!

On Friday I prepared 13arts kits for workshop participants.
Was a lot of work.

During the Sunday workshop.

Everyone worked hard.

We had the most talented and nice students.

Banner - by Lilibleu

Hello 13 Arts fans !!!

My turn today to share with you this new project. I chose to make a new banner for my blog and my Facebook page with the magnificent Out Of The Blue collection. I wanted to change it since a long time!

C'est à mon tour de partager avec vous ce nouveau projet. J'ai choisi de réaliser une nouvelle bannière pour mon blog et ma page Facebook avec la magnifique collection Out Of The Blue. Cela faisait un moment que j'avais envie de la changer !

Using a sponge, I put some Gesso on the background. I then added a few drops of Turquoise Light ink I diluted with a lot of water. After this I added some stamps.

A l'aide d'une éponge, j'ai déposé un peu de Gesso sur le fond. J'ai ensuite rajouté quelques gouttes d'encre Turquoise Light que j'ai diluées avec beaucoup d'eau. Là, j'ai ensuite rajouté quelques tampons.

I coloured the flowers with Chalk Celadon and Turquoise  Light inks in sprays.

J'ai coloré les fleurs avec des encres en spray Chalk Celadon et Turquoise Light.

The chipboard is painted with Matte Green paint.

Le chipboard frise est peint avec de la peinture Matte Green.

I disposed in several places some Gel Medium on which I added beads, Glitters, Microspheres.

J'ai disposé en plusieurs endroits du Gel Medium, sur lequel j'ai rajouté des perles, des Glitters, des Microsphères.

CSI Case 213 | Fiona Paltridge

Hello 13@rts fans!  Fiona here with you today to share my CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) CASE FILE 213

I just love a challenge and these CSI Case Files are perfect! 
The scene was so adorable I couldn't resist giving it a go. To play is very simple. You have to be inspired first by the scene then you choose at least three "clues" from the"evidence" list and at least one "Testimony" from the other list.

From the "Evidence" list I choose Dots as my first clue, I used some adhesive beads for my dots as well as adding some black SPLASH Ink dots at the end.

Next clue I choose was a grid pattern, I drew some more lines onto the Secret letters paper that already has a wood grain on it and then coloured some of them in with some of the Matte Ayeeda paints that matched the colours from the inspiration. I also stamped some more finer grid over the top.

My final clue I choose was tape measure which I stamped on using some Ayeeda paint. Then i tied the testimony together by choosing to include a number sticker in my story. My story "3 Crazy Friends" .... the Friends chipboard fitted perfectly around my photo and I painted it with the Ayeeda paint to blend it in.

I hope you have some fun and join in with the CSI challenge too.

I'll see you all again soon xx

Natalya Trofimova - our new Guest Designer

Czas przedstawić kolejnego utalentowanego Gościa- Natalyę Trofimovą. Natalya przygotowała dla nas piękny layout! :) 

It's time to introduce our next talented Guest Designer- Natalya Trofimova. Natalya made a beautiful layout for us! :)


Natalya Trofimova

Hello, friends! My name is Natalya Trofimova, I live in Russia.I make of the scrapbooking about 3 years, working in a variety of styles, I like to experiment.

Shabby chic is my favorite style, and I'd like to show you the layout created in this style.

I used a lot of pieces of paper and lace to get a nice layered bulk

I gave shade and depth of the layers by sprays.

By using different toppings I created emphases in key areas of the composition. Doily's stencil made a layout gentle and airy.

Product List:


Dziękujemy Natalyo za ten piękny, magiczny projekt! :)
