Transparency special blog post 13@rts #2

Hello and welcome,

to my second blog post with the theme "Transparency" for the company 13@rts. 
Here is the link to: 13arts

This time I made an art journal page in my letter journal.
I started with clear gesso, which I applied on my page.
After that I applied the 13arts colors with my fingers on top of each other so that the colors mix with each other. 
After my first color layer of paint had dried, I applied a layer clear gesso again. 
The clear gesso ensures that the water-based paint of 13arts do not mix uncontrolled with each other. 
The colors remain bright and beautiful.
I repeated this step until I was very happy. Here it should be noted that the last step must be clear gesso.
After everything was dried very well, I added a layer of modeling paste to a stencil. 
Then I let the whole thing dry overnight.
On the next day, I added color glow, stamp images and black gesso to my page.
Final touch: silver glitter, posca pen scribbeling, and word sticker; and I glued my butterflies transparency with gel medium to my page.


A closer look to my art journal page.

Have a great day.

Hobbyshop Sandra Guest Design Project

Hoi allemaal en welkom,

bij mijn guest design project voor hobbyshop Sandra.
 Ik heb voor u een art journaal pagina in grunge / vintage stijl. 

Hiervoor gebruikte ik veel producten uit Sandra's winkel.
Zoals: Americana verf in de kleuren, Bahama Blue, Spiced Pumpkin,
Green Tree, Citron Green, Golden Yellow, Grey Sky, Bittermilk en Spa Blue.
Link na de verf:
Archival Ink: Dandelion en Sky Blue.
Link na de Inkt:

Link na de Glow:
Distress Crayons: gathered twigs, candied apple, fossilized amber.
Link na de crayons:
Distress Glaze. rusty hinge.
Link na de glaze:
Sandras stencil: nr.372, nr.371, nr.368
Link na de stencil:
Stempel Flora Elements Carabelle:
Link na de stempel:
Dan heb ik van Sandra nog de Distress Grit Paste  gebruikt en Seth Apter Rocky Road embossing-powder.



Achtergrond bewerking:


Allereerst schilderde ik mijn papier met de Americana kleuren. In totaal heb ik drie tot vier laagen kleur op mijn papier. Om de kleuren mooi helder te houden, heb ik elke laag vooraf gedroogd met de heat tool.


Nadat ik tevreden was met de achtergrond stempelde ik met de stempel van Carabelle Studio en Archival Ink. Het geel was niet geel genoeg dus heb ik nog 13@rts Color Glow aangebracht.


Je weet het al van mij, ik hou van de kleur zwart op mijn pagina's. Hier op deze pagina gebruikte ik Stabilo All stift en zwart gesso.


Sandra heeft mooie nieuwe stencils in het sortiment. Deze heb ik gebruikt met Americana verf.


Om 3D textuur op mijn pagina te krijgen heb ik de Ranger Distress Grit Paste aangebracht met een stencil van Sandra. In de vochtige pasta heb ik dan embossing poeder verspreid. Ik droog eigenlijk  altijd mijn 3D-pasten aan de lucht, pas daarna smelt ik het embossing poeder met de heat tool.


Daarna heb ik nog met verschillende stempel textur aangebracht, een kleur met Distress Crayons
een oil stifte. Witte verf voor splatters.


Zo lieve mensen dat was mijn guest design project.
 Ik hoop dat ik je een beetje heb kunnen inspireren.

Dit is de link naar Sandras online winkel: https://www.hobbyshopsandra.nl/

Tot de volgende keer.

ScrapFx Australia June blog post #2

Hello together,

 nice that you're over today for my second blog post for the company ScrapFx Australia.

 For my second blog post I challenged myself.
 I have used a photo of my children three times. Once on a scrapbook page of the down under paper collection of 13arts and twice on white background paper DIN4, with an abstract design.
 The new collage papers from ScrapFx are excellent for this style.

It is always surprising what an effect a photo can have on the background. Although the photo is the same I have the feeling that it comes across differently on the three projects.

My first project is a scrapbook page in mixed media style. For this I used the sweet Australian animal chipboards from ScrapFX. Many craft people around the world saw the Q and A from Tim Holtz.
 I have also seen them and the embossing powder/ crayon technique speaks to me!!. I knew immediately, this technique I want to apply for the chipboards from ScrapFx. The only thing what I changed was the color under the glaze. I uesd watercolor.

Travel views...


Closer look.




And here are my two abstract style pages.



I used from ScrapFX:
Amazing Views only the word views

Please my dear blog reader use this link for visiting the store ScrapFx Australia:

I also used:
 13arts products so as:
 Watercolor set, color glow, clear gesso, gel medium and Down under paper 30cm x 30cm, 

 Ranger Tim Holtz: word stickers,  distress glaze and distress crayons.

Many thanks for your visit my blog post today.
Have a beautiful start in the new month.

Transparency special blog post for 13arts #1 June

Hello everyone,

today`s post is all about the transparency folie from 13@rts.

What is transparency folie?
Transparency is actually plastic foil with an imprint (design) on it. This foil can be cut with scissors or a big shot. You can color the foil with alcohol ink, or color glow acrylic medium mix. You can write on it with a water-solid pen or stamping with StazOn ink.

I created a funky style scrapbook layout with a magazine photo image.
I started on a white cardstock and I added clear gesso to my background.
After that I added black gesso to the edges.
I glued my focal point to the background.
Then I added on the back of my transparency alcohol ink.
My next step was that I glued my transparency to the cardstock.
After that I decorated my layout with flowers and added my title and a little bit stamping.
Done!!!
Easy page for beginner...

Thank you so much for visiting today my blog post.
Until tomorrow.

Scrap Fx dt member post #June1

Hello my dear blog readers, 

I am happy the lockdown is lifted, we are allowed to go outside and we are allowed to do sports without contact I missed my taichi and sword fighting exercises very much: my trainer is also very happy; I have the opportunity to train 5 hours per week. Yeah. I want to be back in good shape, in no time :)..
But anyway.
Here is my first inspiration for the month of June for you.
I created a mixed media scrapbook layout and an art journal page.

You are amazing...
is my title for my mixed media scrapbook layout. 
 
To this page I have to tell you a little story about the stencil wich I used as embellishment.
I don`t know what was going on with my brain in the time when I was creating this page, hahaha... while I was busy with my dt project I have heard an audiobook. With the thought that I have a silhouette in my hand I cut this beautiful stencil. This happens when I was with the thoughts at the audiobook.. Ok, I have to admit it looks very nice and fits perfectly to my background.
My photos are from the magazine "Vogue". I used the new paper collection from 13@rtsand  also lots of mediums as well.



A closer look to my mixed media layout.


On the big photo I added a layer of ultra thick embossing powder. Behind the transparency from 
ScrapFx I added alcohol ink. 


Here is the beautiful stencil.


The letter transparency is one of my favorite transparency of ScrapFx. I added behind the words white
acrylic paint.


For the chipboards, my steps are: 1.clear gesso. 2. painting with Rainbow color. 3. embossing with embossing powder. 4. coloring with gold splash ink. 

And for my second inspiration I created an art journal page. Also with a photo images from "Vogue".
I started with a color glow and white gesso background mix. After everything was dry,
I glued the beautiful collage paper on my page. Then I added a white wash to my page.
After that lots of stamping work and highlighting with crayons. Tim Holtz word stickers as embellishments.


Here is the link for ScrapFX: store

I used from ScrapFX:
Diamond Chains stencil
Large Window C PANED chipboard
Gothic Windows chipboard
Art Words transparency
Science transparency
Words of Wisdom stencil
Gothic Window stamp
Blossom Stem Stamp
Number set stamps
Squared stamp

13@rts DT member single blog post

Hello everyone, 

today's post is my single blog post for the company 13@rts.
Here is the link to the 13@rts blog: blogspot

Heike here from Heike`s AugenBlick and I have today the pleasure to inspire you to work with the wonderful products of 13@rts.

The summer has arrived here in The Netherlands with days around 25 degrees Celsius. 
Wonderful to sit in the garden and enjoy the nature. 
I got a beautiful hammock with wooden stand from my handsome hubby. 
Now I have to be careful that I don't just lie in the hammock and read. 
Living is so beautiful if you know how to enjoy it. But anyway..

"FAVORITE"...
is my Steampunk inspired mixed media layout with a photo of my son Joshua.


A closer look.




Background steps on my page:
I started my mixed media layout on two sheets of paper called: Rosefield and the clock.
My first step was adding two layers of clear gesso. After everything was dry very well, I added a layer of a mix from acrylic medium, color glow topaz and rainbow color navy blue to my background.
The left over mix was for the chipboard decoration and for splatters. I decided to play along with the stencil dance of gears and a mix of multipurpose gel and color glow calcite. I dryed my background over night. The next day I started with painting around the gears with orange rainbow color and vivid orange. After the color was dry I added gold glitter to the gears and also to the blue colored chipboards. My last step on my background was adding black gesso with texture powder.
Now it was time for my focal point.

More Than Words June challenge "HELLO"

Hello dear blog readers, 

it is mid-month. That means, on the blog of MTW there is the 2nd reveal of the challenge from the Design team. Here is what I created for you: an art journal page.
As you know, we would always like to know how the challenge inspired you. Here is my explanation: 

Hello.
 I count myself lucky. To live in a country where there is equality between man and woman. Not all girls and women in this world have this happiness.
So I would like to show this layout in thought of these women. Who experience every day a new oppression and injustice. The "Doors and Windows" should stand as a symbol for more openness for this situation. I wrote the word "Hello" on the doorhanger.


Here are the rules:

                                            
And here is our challenge board:

                                   Please hop to the blog for more information and inspiration.

Have a beautiful day.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog post today.

Scrap Fx blog post #2

 Hello everyone, and welcome to my last design team inspiration for the company ScrapFx Australia. For health reasons, I have to say goodbye...
