 Zanim zoboczycie wspaniałe prace naszego zespołu, poznajmy zwyciężczynie naszych poprzednich wyzwań i zobaczmy ich fantastyczne inspiracje.
We have got fantastic inspirations from our team, but first we have also fantastic projects from our Guest Designers, who won our last challenges:

Please meet Jelissa first:

Hi everyone, my name is Jelissa and I come from sunny Singapore with my husband and two boys. My day job is a forensic scientist and in my spare time, I like to take photos, tinkle on the piano, read and of course, do some scrapping! 

I first started scrapping in 2010 as a substitute for scuba diving after my eldest son was born, and also to preserve those precious childhood memories. It soon became a serious hobby as it helped me to find balance after a disciplined day at work. I'm currently on the DT of Blue Fern Studios and I have featured some of their chipboards in today's post. It’s so exciting to be sharing with you on 13@rts how I have created a layout without patterned paper. You can also see more of my work here:

I have titled my page “A Dream of Spring”. For my layout, I have used the following items: chipboard, tissue paper, tissue tape, product packaging, masking tape, gauze, canvas strips, trims and Polish postage stamps that came with my parcel of beautiful 13@rts paints.

Some close-ups:
I used textured white cardstock and arranged my tapes, strips and chipboard (from Blue Fern Studios). Then I painted them over with a layer of white gesso, and also some masking with texture paste. I misted everything with pink sprays and painted in some dark pink and purple. This is followed by some random stamping. After this is finished, I splattered some drops of green paint from 13@rts. I also did some stamping with versamark and heated some embossing powder.

I wanted to do some journaling but used an old Japanese Haiku (7-word poem) instead as I saw these cherry blossoms in Japan. It says, “For the raucous world, the cure is late cherry blossoms”. With so much chaos in the world now and countries going to war, we need to remind ourselves that there is beauty around us, and take a step back from violence to admire what is worth saving in this world. This is also why I named this “A Dream of Spring” as it is the title of the last book in the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” – a story about war, loyalty, friendship, family and magic – where everything terrible and cruel is finally stopped and peace returns.

I hope you like what I have shared with you today. 


Now let's meet Arnlaug:

I'm a 31 year old "girl" from a small island at the west coast of Norway. 
I'm married and we have to little girls together. I work full time as a social worker so the days are busy. I've been scrapping since 2008 but I would say it's the last 2 years my creativity really hit the surface. And now I can't stop;-) I mainly make layouts but sometimes I try out other projects aswell. I love scrapping because it's a hobby for both memory keeping and creating art. When I scrap my mind relaxes and takes me away from the busy everyday life.
I am a scrapper with a lot of variety and can't say I have one particular style. But I have to say I'm having a blast when I'm playing with mixed media:-)

You can visit my blog at

To make this page I started out with tissue paper covered in gesso. Next I glued down some bling (what do yo call this strips of bling?), a flower stem, some glass beads and glass microspheres. Then I covered them in gesso and spritzed on Ayeeda Mist pastel lime and chalk ultramarine. I also added a touch of black Ayeeda ink. 
To finish off the page I put a tag on as a photomat. This is the tag I used trying out the products:-) I also put some mist on the white roses. The big blue flower was the perfect match for this page:-)
