Hi everyone! Today I have more ways to create some Holiday tags! Lots of distressed layers, pieces of ribbons and lace and of course lots of fun chippys to dress them up! I made a few of these last year and I know I will make them every year  now...they are so much fun and to make!!
All of the chippys used are first covered with a coat of 13 Arts gesso and while it is still wet I added some glass glitter to them.
Lots of layers with tucked in chippy branch pieces, Holly and Berrys and pieces from the Vintage Flourish Set 1.
Finish them all off with some chippy snowflakes! The little darlings are going to dress up a package beautifully!
That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the new November challenge …. Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page… Take care and happy Scrapping!

Aqua Flora Collection - 13 Arts

Hello 13@rts Fans!! Today on the 13@rts blog the Design team has creations featuring the NEW Aqua Flora Collection! This collection is beautiful rich colors with lots of embellishments to go along with it. I started with a coat of clear gesso on my layout before using other mediums.

I fussy cut some of the collection flowers and added in some 13 Arts flowers. The collection has beautiful stencils, stickers and chipboard pieces also! I used some Modeling Paste with the stencil on the background.

I added some sisal and touches of black gesso here and there. I also used some Dirty Rose mist in the background and added some to the flower centers to. Touches of 3D balls with Gel Medium to finish the clusters.

One more close up. This collection is a big fav of mine…just gorgeous!!!

That is it for me today…I hope you check out what the rest of team created and head on over to the 13Arts store and check out all of the NEW products!!  Take care and happy scrapping!!

Santa's Helpers - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I am back with more Holiday Tag shares…trying to get ahead of the game here. I was inspired by a layout our own design team member Nanne made last year with these adorable Windows and Santa’s Helpers. My tags are the large 10 inch tag set.
I also used the Grunge Snowflake stamp in the background. All of my chippys are finished with gesso and dusted with glass glitter.
I added a few chippys snowflakes and finished it all off with a Christmas Sentiment.
That is it for me today…are you ready to start your holiday projects yet? Check out all of the holiday products in the store! Take care and happy scrapping!

Resin Art with 13 Arts

Hello 13@rts Fans!! Today I have a something a little bit different for me. I have recently began to create with Art Resin and I have found that 13 Arts mediums are amazing to tint the Resin with. You need your base to be acrylics or powders so these products are just perfect! I even prime my boards first with 13 Arts gesso.
My first piece can be used as a wall hanging or a lazy susan. I love the ocean look of this piece…and yes all those colors are from the 13 Arts lines. I used black gesso on this one, and lots of blues, greens black and white Inks and Shiny Powders to color my resin. I with you could see how shiny these mica filled powders really are...amazing!!!
Close up of the cool waves.
I am also creating a line of serving trays or cheese boards for an upcoming market. I think they are so gorgeous and a fun way to serve at partys. They really looks amazing all dolled up with cheese, crackers, meats and what ever you like!
This is an art that I am just starting to touch on, but I know I will be going big (wall pieces) in the near future, and I also know that 13 Arts products are going to be my go to colors to create with!
That is it for me today…  Take care and happy scrapping!!

Love Layout - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Today I have a layout to share featuring lots of Creative embellishments chippys and stamps! I just adore the distressed stamps and used the text and chevron ones. The papers are Vintage Summer from 13 Arts.

I tucked in pieces from the Love Tag Set and did not finish them…just some medium splatters on them.

Next I have pieces from Flourish Set 10, a chippy butterfly and the LOVE is cut from the Love Tag Set with some gold spray on it.

I also used one of the new New Intricate frames on this layout..I cut it in half and used a piece on the top and bottom of the photo mat.

That is it for me today…don’t forget to check out this months challenge for your chance to win some free chippys!! Take care and happy scrapping!
