Mixed Media Butterfly Card by Lady E

Hi :)
I'm coming to share with you delicate mixed media card.
I absolutely love Aura Rosa paper collection and I've used it as my background.

Dziś chciałabym się z Wami podzielić mixed mediową kartką z motylem.
Uwielbiam papiery z kolekcji Aura Rosa i one właśnie są moim tłem.
 Gorgeous butterfly and chipboard elements are also available in 13arts store :)
Śliczny motyl i tekturkowe elementy są także dostępne w sklepie 13artsowym :)

I'm in love with lovely silver shimmer touch which gives me silver glitter paint and I used it almost
on all my projects.
Zakochałam się w srebrnym wykończeniu jakie daje mi srebrna farbka brokatowa, i ostatnio
używam jej prawie na wszystkich pracach.
Thank you! / Dziękuję!

Layout "Spring" by Maryse

Hello everyone !

It's my turn to present you a layout.
I opted for a layout with a spring flavor, 
in shades of yellow.  I included this beautiful picture
I had taken during a walk near a swamp.

Look here under the butterfly as the rainbow color amber gives a nice effect.
Reflection of yellow and brown.  So pretty !!

For my floral embellishments, I used 
a sheet of set A6 " Aria Story".
Then with the help of a paintbrush I used

To add relief I finished using the rainbow color amber

I cut them out and added them to my page. 
And here are beautiful flowers to make !!

Altered item from Christina

Hello 13Arts fans!!! It's Christina here today and I have an altered project that I have made with black gesso, and metallic paints to show you.
I used a wooden packing of christmas decorative items and I wanted to alter it so that was the time.
 First of all , I covered all the surface with black gesso . I was sure to have every centimetre of the item covered and when the gesso dried I used my metallic paints in several colours to make some splashes on the black backround. I like to give some interest on my projects , so I used some 3D balls on my backround and some white sisal.
 I thought it would be better to have a "Spring " theme , so I cut some butterflies from "His and Hers" collection and painted them with metallic paints. I have also painted my chipboard pieces with them. At the end I used some extra texture products such as microspheres and glitter stripes to give some extra effect on my altered item.
                    Even though it's a dark piece , I like that the colours can pop up and it is bright !

                                  Hope yoy ernjoyed it today and be inspired by my creation!

"Timeless" Layout | Fiona Paltridge

Hello! Fiona here today, sharing with you a layout I have created  using the stunning "His and Hers" collection designed by the very talented Olga Heldwein.

This design follows one of the trails of the butterflies on this beautiful paper. I painted them with a watered down Matte Pink Ayeeda Paint and then dressed each one up with some Ayeeda Paint in the VIVID Magenta. I either painted it through a stencil or I painted it directly onto some little butterflies I cut out of the "United Forever" paper.

I also added some of the brass clocks from the clock set and the Timeless title from the 12x12 chipboard collection.

I used one of the crocheted doily's I have collected during my thrift store shopping. I just love shopping through old stores and collecting ephemera.

Thank you for popping by.

Smile layout


na dziś przygotowałem layout na bazie papieru z kolekcji "His and Hers". Papier jest dość ciemny, więc tym razem do pokolorowania tła postanowiłem użyć farbek z serii Vivid Vintage.


I prepared for today a page on paper from "His and Her" collection. The paper is a little bit dark and I decided to painted backround with Vivid Vintage paints.

Do stworzenia tła użyłem maski "Falling dots 2" i białego gessa. Dodałem kilka kresek zrobionych za pomocą żółtego Splasha oraz kolejne kreski z różnych kolorów farb z serii Vivid Vintage. Tym razem postawiłem na nanoszenie farb pędzelkiem.

To make a backround I used "Falling dots 2" stencil and white gesso. I added few lines from yellow Splash and another lines from different colors paints Vivid Vintage. To make this lines I used a brush.
