Christmas Tags by Lisa Griffith

Hello 13 arts friends! 
As the holidays fast approach us, it's so tempting to create something special that has a lot of sparkle and shimmer, and 13 arts products are perfect for just that!


I have used the paper 'Sounds Good' from the 'Aria Story' collection as the base for my tags and then covered them in white gesso through a stencil, some stamping and some blue Ayeeda Ink. One that was all dry I added some embellishments and then I used lots of 13 arts glitter, microspheres and paints to add lots of shine.


I used two pieces of the 'Aria Story' chipboard words that I painted white and then while
the paint was wet I sprinkled on some clear tiny microspheres to add some texture.


Here is the full list of 13 arts products that I used:

13 arts Clear Gesso
13 arts White Gesso
13 arts Gel Medium
Aria Story paper 'Sounds Good'
13 arts Stencil 'Postcard'
13 arts Stencil 'Stars'
Ayeeda Ink Navy Blue
Ayeeda Paint Silver Glitter
 Clear Glass Microspheres
 Silver Microspheres
Silver Hologram Glitter


 I hope everyone has a wonderful, happy Christmastime with friends and family.

Big hugs,
Lisa xo

Layout "Lovely" By Lilibleu


Hello 13 Arts fans !!


I come back today to give you my first December layout. I wanted to work on a dark background and I chose this very lovely paper from His and Hers collection.


Je reviens aujourd'hui pour vous présenter mon premier projet de décembre. J'ai voulu travailler sur un fond sombre et j'ai choisi ce très joli papier de la collection His and Hers.





On the background, I created some kind of white cloud on my work area mixing some Pastel White ink with water.

Sur mon fond de page, j'ai réalisé comme un nuage blanc sur ma zone de travail en mélangeant de l'encre Pastel White avec de l'eau.


On the white cloud, I applied some Metallic! Bronze paint using the Mask Sunbeam to give texture!


Sur le nuage blanc, j'ai appliqué de la peinture Metallic! Bronze a l'aide du Mask Sunbeam pour donner de la texture !



After having sticked all my papers, flowers and decorations, I added Microspheres Gold with transparent glue on several places on my layout.

Après avoir collé tous mes papiers, fleurs et décos, j'ai rajouté à plusieurs endroits sur ma réa des Microspheres Gold avec de la colle transparente.






I finished my project by adding white and bronze splashes.

J'ai fini mon projet en rajoutant des éclaboussures blanche et bronze.

A Christmas Wreath | Fiona Paltridge

Hello my beautiful 13@rts people. Well it's that time of year when we all start our Christmas craft. I am a HUGE lover of my Christmas craft. I make at least half a dozen new things every year.


I often make a new wreath for my front door and this year I decided to go with a traditional Pine cone option. If you didn't have one of these you could use a Rattan Wreath. I adorned it with some of the most glorious foliage from the Christmas section on the 13@rts website.


The little Red Jagoda Berries are so perfect for this holly leaf spray. The red colour is just perfect and the little Pinecones finish the centre piece off just beautifully.


I also gave the pine cone wreath a little touch of  White Gesso. It looks a little bit like snow and gives the whole piece a more rustic feel.


I found that the Maple Leaves with the slightest touch of gold glitter the perfect filler for my spray but the main greenery I focused on was the Large Green Brocade Leaves. I enhanced them with some Shiny Powder in the green.

I am really happy with how it came out and can't wait to hang it on my front door. What Christmas craft will you make this season?

I'll be back again in a couple of weeks with my last post for 13@rts in 2016. See you all then xx

Winter Art Journal by Anna Rogalska

Hello my lovely friends. I’m here with you today to share an art journal spread I created using the 13arts products.  I have chosen a colour combination that speaks volumes about winter:
grey, black, blue, brown and silver.
I have used the "Santa's song" paper  for my background. I have applied modelling paste with the "Greetings"  stencil and then I have used the mists and glitter.



Witam wszystkich! Dzisiaj pokażę Wam wpis do art journalu, który zrobiłam z produktów 13arts.
Wybrałam kombinację kolorów, które świadczą o zimie: szary, czarny, niebieski, brązowy i srebrny. Jako tła użyłam papieru "Santa's song". Użyłam maski "Greetings" wraz z pastą modelującą, a następnie mgiełek i brokatu.





Hope you’ll like it!
Have a nice day!


Mam nadzieję, że się Wam podoba!

Getting ready for Christmas with Marta



Witajcie! 
Czy wiedzieliście, że w 13arts czeka na Was mnóstwo produktów świetnych do przyrządzenia świątecznych dekoracji? Niektóre z nich dopiero czekają na wprwadzenie do sklepu, ale nasi klienci mogli kupić je już na targach artystycznych w Poznaniu :)

 Hello! 
Did you know that 13arts has ton of goodies great to make christmas decorations? Some of them are not in the store yet but our customers could buy them on artist trade show in Poznań :) 


Bardzo lubię robić kartki pachnące świętami, więc tym razem zdecydowałam się użyć mnóstwa suszonych plasterków pomarańczy, szyszek, cynamonu i anyżku. Białe gesso i tusz SPLASH świetnie udają śnieg. 

I really love making cards with christams scents so I decided to use a lot of dried slices of oranges, pinecones, cinnamon and anise. White gesso and white splash ink imitate snow really well. 





A jeśli wolicie bardziej tradycyjne kartki i ozdoby, kolekcja Winter Tales zawsze idealnie się do tego nadaje! 
and if you want to make more traditional cards or gift tags Winter Tales papers are always great for that!  



Użyłam / I used: 



Cynamon / Cinnamon
Suszone Pomarańcze / Dried Oranges
Anyż / Anise
