Single blog post 13@rts

 Hello my dear blog reader, 

and welcome to my blog post for the company 13@rts.

Here is the link:

Before I will start with new inspirations about the upcoming paper collections,

I want to show you my scrapbook layout in mixed media style with one of the old

paper collections called "Rosalie" and a photo of my daughter Mia with her grandmother Ilse.

It`s your day...

A closer look to my page.

I colored the chipboards from 13@rts with Color Glow Emerald and the word girl 

with the coral color from the 13@rts watercolor set.

I added behind my photo paper from the Bella paper collection.

I framed the photo of my daughter with the new 3D impresslits floral frame from Tim Holtz.

My paper was one sheet from the Rosalie A6 card set.

My title is from the 13@rts word cardstock.

I colored my title also with the 13@rts watercolor set in the color coral.

Under my photo is a butterfly from the Sunrise paper collection.

The male photo is from my vintage paper photo collection.

For texture on my background paper I mixed black gesso with multipurpose gel medium

and I added this mix to a stencil abstract flower from the

 Dreamland paper collection to my background paper.

After that I covered the wet mixture with black embossing powder. I wanted a shiny layer on my 

background. After everything was dry I added chalk celadon mist to my background.

The hats are from the 13@rts ART book.

The butterfly is from a 13@rts transparency sheet.

The clocks are from a Victoriana fuzzy cut paper sheet.

Some embellishments are from the Bella paper collection.

For my finishing touch I added coral color splatters from the 13@rts watercolor set.

Scrapbook layouts and art journal page for the company Scrap Fx

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog post for the company Scrap Fx Australia.

Here is the link:

The month of February stands for romantic, love and roses,

but there is so much more.

The ending of winter and the sensuality of spring begins.

The dark nights are getting shorter and the daylight is getting more bright.

The first birds come back from the winter quarters

and delight me with their beautiful morning singing.

But anyway.

I created with the February release "Steampunk"

two scrapbook layouts and one art journal page.

Steampunk in blue..

A closer look to my page:

I chose for my focale point another vintage photo image from my stash,

which I covered with a white wash first and than crackle glaze for an altered effect.

The wings are from ScrapFx transparency sheet.

The round number image is a stamp image also from ScrapFx.

I stamped the number with versa mark ink and over that

 I added cafe au lait embossing powder from Lindy.

For the chipboard in the color green I used Ranger Distress Crayon and for the blue chipboard

Color Glow Topaz from 13arts.

For my background I used a 13arts Dreamland paper sheet and I started with random stamp work.

I used the Chains stamp and cogs stamp from Scrap Fx.

Than I added to the kites stencil from ScrapFx a mix of

 Multipurpose gel medium and Color Glow Tourmaline from 13arts.

The star is from a ScrapFx transparency sheet.

Perfect view to the stamp and stencil work.

I added also the Chains stamp on my background and therefore I used black WOW embossing powder.

I used from Scrap Fx:

Grungy stars transparency

Inside number stamp

Fairy Wings transparency

Chain stamp

Cogs stamp

2020301 Chains mixed chipboard
2020323 Kites stencil
Collage chipboard

My second page :

Stempunk in pink/red.

And a closer look to my page.

I used a paper sheet from the Victoriana paper collection from 13arts.

For my embellishments I used 2020311 Meshed Gears which I cut in different round shapes

but first I glued the collage paper on a sheet of white cardstock.

The number comes from a transparency sheet from Scrap Fx.

I colored the cogs with red and orange rainbow colors from 13arts.

I painted one half of my paper with black gesso and then I stamped with versa mark ink 

and the cogs stamp. After that I added embossing powder in silver.

I mixed gel medium, glitter, microbeads and rainbow color together and I used this mix to the kites stencil.

Perfect view of my background.

I used the same products from Scrap Fx for this page as above and a little bit more.

I used from Scrap Fx:
2020311 Meshed Gears collage paper
Cogs chipboard

And last but not least my art journal page on a DIN4 watercolor paper.

Lots of paint layers, stamp layers with embossing ink created a beautiful grunge effect.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.

I used from Scrap Fx:
2020291B Top Hat Man black silhouette
2020324 Mesh stencil

I hope you feel a little bit inspired.
See you in March for another DT member inspiration.

 Hello my dear blog reader,

welcome to the new More than Words challenge in the month of February.

Here is the link :

Our February challenge is:

Word: Romance

Creative challenge: Rose (this can be an image of a rose or the color rose)


Scrapbooking in mixed media style is my passion, my joy and the secret

of my energy. Creating to me is like finding my inner self, my soul.

It gives me a great joy to see my creative corner in our livingroom.

When I create, I can feel the ROMANCE between me, my mediums, papers

and everything around me. 

I added the word ROMANCE in big black letters to my background.

For the creative challenge ROSE, I have chosen the color ROSE.


Below on the photo you can see the big black letters from the word ROMANCE.
I really love to combine my page with stickers (13@rts), markmaking lines,
and black stamp images. For highlighting I added 13@rts yellow color and orange color also to my page.
Most of my stencils are from Hobbyshop Sandra (NL).

Below, a yellow colored DIE cut element (Tim Holtz) and a vintage photo image (LaBlanche)
with a sticker from (13@rts). Fuzzy cutting black and white stamp images.

A photo image (Finnabair) altered with big brush pen work and a distress tool.

February IG challenge 13@rts

 Hello and welcome

to my Instagram challenge inspiration for the company 13@rts.

I created a scrapbook layout in mixed media style.

Our mood board is a beautiful colorful board.

I was immediately inspired by the photo in the left corner.

The lilac- dark violet color with a touch of yellow and the lemon green, just perfect for

what I had in mind. Years ago I took a photo with my smartphone from the 

hairdresser- magazine during my visit by the hairdresser. 

I started on a sheet paper from the Dreamland paper collection from 13@rts

which I covered completely with a mix of Rainbow color, color glow and Acrylic medium.

After my background was dry I added black Gesso to a  window-shutter stencil from 13@rts.

For an abstract look of the window-shutter stencil images I turned the stencil horizontal.

My next step was again with a stencil.

I added this time a mix of Modeling paste with Color Glow to the stencil.

I let the background dry over night.

I added on the next day white acrylic strips with a small brush

 and four different colors of Mist from 13@rts in the color: 

chalk woodbine, chalk dirty pink, pearl bordeaux and chalk lilac. 

This time I dried my background with the Heat Tool.

Only a little metalic shine from the Color Glows was missing on my page.

First I applied beeswax and over that Color Glow in the colors: citrine, lolite 

and emerald. 

Then was it time for my embellishments and paper layers and 3D effects mediums.

Here is the beautiful mood board:

I really love how my scrapbook page come together with all the mediums and 

papers and embellishments from 13@rts.

 And well that started all with a photo from a hairdresser- magazine.

A closer look:
I added on the metal heart the rust effect products from 13@rts first.
After that I painted with Rainbow colors and Color Glow.

On the photo below you can see how the two stencils match perfectly together.
The window shutter stencil with black gesso and the dreamland stencil with a 
mix from modelingpaste and Color Glow.

I added on the Lady face transparency folie and word cardstock from 13@rts.
I painted the beautiful flower from 13@rts with Color Glow and I made handrolled paper flowers from the paper collection Rosalie. Bella fuzzy cut elements as embellishments next to my photo.

Perfect view of the rolled handmade flowers.

I used from 13@rts: background sheet stamp stencil cut paper sheet transparency stencil stamp fuzzy cut elements title word round brush Silicon brush Flower

mediums: rust effect set watercolor set multipupose gel medium acrylic medium Color Glow lilac Color Glow rose Color Glow blue Color Glow yellow light Color Glow green rainbow color rainbow color

I hope you feel a little bit inspired to create with the beautiful products of 13@rts.

Have a wonderful month.
