Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout for the Company 13arts

 Hello my dear followers,

I am back with another page in mixed media style for the company 13arts.

This time with a page in brown and blue.

At the moment I am in love with the beautiful blue shades of the product

Color Glow. They are so rich and vibrant and the metailc shine is so delightfully

I spend a lot of time to look to my new color combination . It is so wonderful together.

I think that the Industrial Zone paper collection also go perfectly with femine scrapbook layouts.

But decide for yourself.


You shine...


A little Q and A about my layout:

My photo for this page is from pixabay a free photo site.
Below you can see the amazing 3D effect which I created with a mixture of 
multipurpose gel medium, micro glass beads and color glow. I added this mixture to a stencil 
from the new Industrial Zone paper collection.
My background paper choise is a sheet also from the
Industrial Zone paper collection called Blueprint. I used for the gears chipboard from 13arts
Color glow as my color and I added a layer of clear embossing powder over the color glow.
The beautiful rust color is also Goldstone color glow and a little bit of orange rainbow color.
For the hightlights I used copper GlitterInk . My embellsihments are also from the Industrial Zone paper collection. 






Here is a photo collage from some of the products
which I used from 13arts.


Here is a link to the paper collection:

Mixed media scrapbook layout for the company 13arts

 Hello my dear followers,

the summer is here and I really enjoy my garden.

My lovely hubby and I have bought a big olive tree for our garden, also two orange trees and a 

solar water fountain. We love the meditarian style on our terrace and with the sound of rippling water

 it`s so relaxing.

But anyway..

For my first single post in June I created such a rainbow colour mixed media page on the Magnolia Dream paper collection.

CREATE... is my title.


 A closer look to my page:
on the photo below you can see the texture which I made with the stencil and gel medium.
I really love to add the pretty rose flowers from 13arts. They are so tiny and cute.


Behind my photo is a fussy cutting transparensy folie which I coloured with Alcohol Ink.
Alcohol Ink is also to buy in the store from 13arts.



A little ABC...about the products which I used.
1. Rainbow colours are watercolour granules and they are highly pigmented.
my favorite technique with them is: I add the rainbow colour first on my page and 
then I spray water. Of course you have to prime your paper background with clear gesso first.
The gesso protect the paper for soaking full of liquid (water or spray)
2. Stencils are perfect for adding texture to the page. In my case I added to the stencil circle of life
gel medium. Gel medium is clear after drying.
3.  I used for my mixed media layout the Magnolia Dreams and Rose in Love paper collection.
4. Glitter Acrylic Ink from 13arts is absolutley perfect for a glamour touch.
5.  Coloured chalk spray mist from 13arts is such a nice product. I offtend use this product
mostly near the end with a brush directly from the bottle. Also is this product perfect for splattering.

This is a photo collage with some of the products from 13arts which I used for my page.

More than Words Guest design

 Hello everyone,

More than Words is celebrating the 150th challenge..

BIG CONGRATS!!

I am a guest designer for this amazing event.

 The june challenge is...

Word: Enchanting

Creative challenge: Botanicals


Here is the link to the MTW Blog:

https://www.morethanwordschallenge.com/

Q and A....

MTW.
How long have you been creating art?.
Heike.
Actually, I've been creating all my life.
Painting, knitting, cross-stitching, sewing and and and...
I started paper crafting 2010. I started with cards, tags and mini books
Four years later 2014 I included 30cm x 30cm mixed media scrapbooking pages, art journaling and junk journaling to my creative paper work.

MTW.
What is your favourite art supply or product?.
Heike.
I don't have to think long about it, black gesso or black acrylic.
MTW.
What is your favourite colour palette to use?.
Heike.
Actually I am not afraid of strong colours.
But my two favourite palettes are: 1. Cadmium red, orange, ultramarine blue and a little bit of light turquoise. 
2. Pastel pink, gold, white, black and a touch of dark green.

MTW.
Our very first challenge was in Jan. 2016:
a, how has your art changed since then?
b, how have you grown as an artist since then?
Heike.
I think at the beginning of my scrapbooking time I let myself be influenced a lot by trends and other crafters. Which was absolutely okay for me and I learned a lot . 
After I think a couple of years  of practicing with others style the time came when I had enough confidence in myself to spread my wings and find my own style.
As I said I started with simple cards ( a word and one stamp image on a white card) mini books where I used paper kits, no mediums.
Scrapbooking pages with one photo and a little bit watercolour.
In 2014 I started with experimenting on white background paper with stamps and stencils. This is still my favourite thing to do.
A little bit later I also dared to do mixed media backgrounds.
Today I can say I have my own style.
I still grow as an artist.
Now I am teaching scrapbooking in mixed media style in classes and online workshops.
 At the moment I design for the companies:
13arts and Scrap Fx.

MTW.
What is your favourite thing about MTW challenge?.
Heike.
MTW is not only a challenge site for crafters, it is also a big community. I think MTW is the only challenge site where crafters around the world come together.
That makes MTW so beautifully unique.
BIO :

I live with my hubby Joergen in the oldest city of The Netherlands.
Together we have four grown up kids (two daughters and two boys).

Enchanted flower nr. 150...  is my title.





Description about my art journal page:

Enchanted flower nr. 150...
I started my art journal page with lots of BOTANICALS stamp images
in green colour shades.
After that I added some numbers to my background. A little bit colour splatters also in green colour.
The next step was adding black gesso and black stamping images.
For my focale point I added a fussy cut rose and I painted a black frame for the flower.
My title " ENCHANTED Flower nr. 150" which is written with a white gel pen as finale touch.

Thank you MTW for the opportunity to be a guests designer.

Happy creating everyone and good luck with the MTW challenge.

13arts June challenge

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to the new 13arts IG June challenge.

Which comes with an amazing mood board in Industrial style.

Perfect for the Industrial Zone paper collection from 13arts.

I created an abstract looking scrapbook page.

Fussy cutting elements, stencil images, color glow and black gesso complement each other excellently on this layout.

A little pen work and my page was done.



A closer look to my page.




TIP of the day...
If you mix color glow with liqued acrylic medium or gel medium the color glow powder
will be waterproof and translucent.
I added the mix with a silicon brush from 13arts to my page.

Here is the mood board for your inspiration.


I think you know by now that the challenge is only to find on the 13arts IG site.

Please add the #13artsjun22 to your post.

Hello , Scrapbook Layout in Mixed Media Style for 13@rts

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second singel blog post in the beautiful month of May.

I created for you a mixed media page on the Magnolia Dreams collection.

I really love to play with color and I think blue and bordeaux is a lovely color combination.

Anyway,

Hello is the title from my layout.



A closer look to my page:
Years a ago I came across this beautiful photo images in a fashion magazine.
The model reminds me a little bit of the painter Frida Kahlo.
Which I really like. So I took a photo with my phone and I printed her on glossy photo paper.
Unfortunately I dont no the name of the  magazine , sorry for that.


My background paper is from the Magnolia Dream paper collection.
Lots of paper fussy cutting elements, transparency and flowers from 13arts for my decoration.
As always I started my work with a Clear Gesso layer from 13arts.
My next step is Crackle Paste from Deco Art which is also to buy in the store from 13arts.
The best crackle result is when you let the paste air dry for about 20 minutes.


After my crackle paste was dry I started with adding stamp images to my background.
The next step was adding 13arts sprays in blue and dark purple and bordeaux.
After my background was completely dry I added my focale point and embelishments.
Lots of 3Deffect products from 13arts for highlights on my layout and I was done.



Here is the link to 13arts:

And some links to my favorite products of 13arts:

Morning Light Scrapbook Layout in Mixed Media Style for 13arts

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my first single blog post for the company 13arts in Poland.

I am so happy that I am back in the dt member team from Aida.

Not only that is an amazing talented team I am also a big fan

of Aida`s 13arts products and paper collections.


I have for you as inspiration a scrapbook page of course in mixed media style.

That is what I love to do...mixed media on 30cm by 30cm design paper.

Lets start.

Morning Light...


A closer look to my page.
My foto is an old Valentine postcard which I cut a little bit smaler to fit my page.

I used as background paper three different paper collections from 13arts.
1 sheet from the Rose in Love collection.
1 sheet from the End of Summer collection.
1 sheet from the Unforgettable collection.

For a little intrest I sewed the pages together.



The new transparency from 13arts gives a very pretty embellishment.
For al my DIE cutting elements I use always design paper from the same paper collection.
For more intrest I add embossing powder .


Normaly I like to design my pages without flowers.
But at the moment I like to challenge myself to create pages with flowers.
13arts has also beautiful flowers to create with. 
For a little bit bling I added Acrylic Glitter Ink in Pink to the flowers.


Stamps for me are a must on a mixed media page and I love it when the stamp images 
stand out a bit under the paperclusters.



The butterfly comes from a fuzzy cutting page.
Each paper collection from 13arts has one of two fuzzy cutting pages.

For texture on my background . I used Modeling paste, ColorGlow and Rainbow color together.

Lots off 3D effect products from 13arts as well.

Here is a list with my must have products for a mixed media layout:

Clear, Black and White Gesso.

Gel Medium and Multipurpose Medium

3D effect products

Color Glow.

and last but not least, PAPER.

Here are some fotos of the products which I used:

Rose in Love paper


The stencil brick and wire.

3D white stones.

Fuzzy cutting paper sheet.

Multipurpose medium, my favorite glue.


Acylic Glitter Ink perfect as finale touch.
