Single design team blog post for 13@rts August 2020

Hello my dear blog reader,  and welcome to my single blog post for the company 13@rts. Not only that I am your challenge host for the month of August  (I hope you saw my mood board and find the time to take part in the August challenge). The challenge can be found on the 13@rts blog page. But anyway: I am here today to inspire you to create with the wonderful products of 13@rts. I created a scrapbook layout in mixed media style. Here is a short description about my creative process. As always I started with adding two layers of clear gesso on both sites of my paper sheet. After my clear gesso was dry, I started with adding texture and color. Therefore I mixed color glow with multipurpose gel medium and I added the mix to a stencil from 13@rts. After that I repeated this step with  another color from color glow. I let the whole thing air dry. In the mean time I painted my title (cardstock-words) with yellow watercolor, cut a sheet of  the Rosalie collection with my big shot and a DIE fr

August guest designer by Mixed Media Academy

Hello everyone,  and welcome to my guest design project on the blog from  Mixed Media Academy. I created for the August challenge a scrapbook layout 30cm x 30cm in mixed media style.  I started on a grey cardstock design paper from 13arts with two layers of clear gesso also from 13arts. After my gesso was dry I added color glow to my page. Color glow is a metallic shine powder and I used two different color shades in blue. The next step was adding silverglitter, white acrylic color and bordeaux acrylic color with my palette-knife. After that I added my stencil design with Archival Ink and stencils from Hobbyshop Sandra, a store here in The Netherlands. Now it was time for  my stamp images with stamps from ScrapFx Australia, LaBlanche and LostCoast Design and black  ink. Some parts of my black stamp images are covered in black embossingpowder from WOW. For more texture on my layout I added blue hot wax to my page. Then I painted randomly with black acrylic paint. After everything was dr

August 2020 13@rts challenge

Hello 13@rts fans, I am Heike from Heike`s AugenBlick and I am your August challenge host. I created a moodboard with blue, grey, silver and brown shades. August here in Europe is the time for the long school vacation. It is also the time for traveling, relaxing and enjoying the seaside. Time for a bond-fire and a good glas of wine. Time for family and friends. Time for long conversations at dinner or BBQ time. The colors from the  August moodboard mean all that to me. But I was also inspired from the Netflix serie "Tschernobyl". I did a little bit resarch about the nuclear reactor disaster.  and I was kind of fascinated and at the same time shocked. The pictures have something timeless. The area is extensively swelled because there is still radioactivity. Knowing that there is something, that you can't see, but is a deadly threat to all living beings.  Mother nature wants to cover up this catastrophe and  she overgrows everything that was left behind by the people.
