Todays sharing is an art journal page which I created in my Ranger art journal book.

ScrapFx November #1

 Hello my dear followers,

welcome to my design team work for the company ScrapFx Australia.

My first inspiration this month is a Christmas scrapbook layout in mixed media style.

I started on the new paper collection Memory Lane from 13@rts,

which I painted completly with a light transparent lila colour layer.

Therefore I used the Color Glow Alexandrite from 13@rts.

After that I added pieces from the dotty circles collage sheet to the background.

I covered the christmas tree frame also with the same collage paper.

 and I painted the frame in gold acrylic and glitter acrylic ink.

The next step was stamping with different stamps from ScrapFx.

I used the following stamps:  flower head stamp, branch B stamp, negative number stamp,

 chevron panel stamp and circle collage stamp.

I used for my focale point christmas post card image, transparency

 and the chipboard colours of christmas.

I hope you like my inspiration and you feel a little bit inspired

to work and create with the amazing products from ScrapFx.

13@rts November #1

 Good morning my dear followers,

I hope you are all doing well? Finally the Autumn is here with rain and wind.

The leaves in the forest are falling so beautifully in the colours of redorange, yellow and brown.

Which inspired me to create a scrapbook layout in mixed media style with lots of rust colors.

Therefore I used the rust powder from 13@rts.

I use the rust powder by mixing it dirctly with the rust liquid to form a thick paste which I use then on a stencil. After that I sprinkle orange rainbow colour from 13@rts on the wet paste and then add a few more drops of the rust liquid over it. The next step is, I let it air dry to get the best rust effect.


A closer look to my page.
Before I started with my layout I always add two layers of 13@rts clear gesso.
This layer of clear gesso keeps my paper from getting soaked with the products I use.
 It creates a kind of barrier.
I like the copper acrylic glitter on my DIE cutting leaves.
I prefer for my DIE cutting the 6inch by 6inch paper pads from13@rts.
The dog and cat images are from the Young and Free fussy cutting paper sheet.

I think that a mixed media page always need lots of different products, 
a diversity of media or materials. In my case I used the 3D effect products from 13@rts.
Mica flakes, Glitter flakes, Pearls, Microbeads, rust effect powder, watercolour pigment, 
gesso, acrylic glitter, paper, stickes, transparency, beads, fabric and stamp images. That is for me a mixed media scrapbook layout.

I made the wrinkle effect by crunching the paper. 
This is always such a stunning altered effect.
I used as my background paper one sheet from the Pastel Spring paper collection
and a paper sheet that comes from a very old paper collection from 13@rts and is no longer available.
This was actually my very first paper collection from 13@rts which I buy for myself  here in The Netherlands.

This is a photo collage from some of the products which I used on my scrapbook layout.

Here are some links to the products from 13@rts:

Pastel spring paper collection

Young and Free paper collection

Rust effect powder and Liquid

Rainbow colour powder

Acrylic glitter ink

3D effect products

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

Have a wonderful day.

Until then...

13@rts November challenge

 Hello and welcome November,

"Autumn is a second 

spring when

every leaf is a flower."

(Albert Camus)

What a beautiful quote to start the new month.

You know a new month also means there is a new challenge on the IG account from 13@rts.

This time with a mood board of the Nothern light, evening fairies light,

mystical forests and fairytale stories.

I was inspired from the Nothern light photo image from the mood board.

And I already knew which paper collection I wanted to use. "Sunrise" from 13@rts.


A closer look to my page.
By zooming on the scrapbook page it looks as if my background paper is gray .
It`s not like this it is actually in a bright blue tone.
But anyway, I wanted to imitate the night sky of the Northern light.
I use therefore lots of 13@rts sprays and Color Glows.
Blue shade sprays are: Pastel blue, Chalk Iindigo, Chalk blue light, Chalk ultramarine,
Green shad sprays are: Chalk celadon, Sap green, Chalk turquoise, Chalk turquise light.
Color Glows are: Amber, Tanzanite, Jadeit and Blue Saphire.

The stencil which I used for the star imitation is Frozen Dreamland from 13@rts.
My medium for the stencil image is : Gel medium with Color Glow Amber.

This is the mood board from the November challenge.

Here are some links to the products which I used on my mixed media layout:

Here are some rules:
Please use at least one product from 13@rts.
Tell us which photo image from the mood board inspired you.
Use the #13artsnov22

Have a wonderful day.
Good luck with the challenge.
