"Adventure" for 13@rts

Hello lovely friends and followers!!

Today I will share with you a layout that I made inspired by a sketch from MCS desined by Liz Chidester. I wanted to play with my new mists, black gesso and paint that, sweet and generous Aida Domisiewicz sent me!!! So I have chosen to use blue, pink, bordeaux, black and silver! Here is the outcome.....


The circles were done using black gesso!! And I am totally in love with the glitter silver paint!!! It also comes out in gold!!!! It is so easy to apply just by using a paint brush!! The look is really impressive!!

Materials used:
Scrapmatts chipboard title


Thanks for visiting!!
Happy Scrapping!!!xx

Mixed media canvas for 13@rts!!

Hello my friends!!!
Happy new year to all!!! Better late than never!!! I know that I have neglected my blog a lot lately but I have new responsibilities at the company I work for here in Greece which consumes almost all of my free/internet time!!! However I promise that whenever possible, I will do my posts and show you what I make!

Today I am sharing with you a mixed media canvas and a step by step tutorial on how to achive this look!
My goal was to be free and see what happens! This is the fun of mixed media right? And "art" is to express your self and feel liberated!

1. Start with background stamps. Randomly all over the canvas.

2. DON'T be afraid! Take your papers and tear them to pieces!!! Really liberating ;)

3. Select a nice stencil and apply Ayeeda modeling paste!

4. Add ribbon, trims, lace, whatever you like.

5. Misting time!!! I wanted some pink so I used an empty bottle and dropped some pink Ayeeda ink inside!!

6. If the colors are very intense, you can tone them down with gesso.

7. To add even more texture, apply some Ayeeda gel medium and spread some glass filler all over.

So, here is the final project...

"I love art"

Christmas is near - Scrapmatts

Hello my dear friends!!! Here is a little box that I made in order to put a Christmas gift inside!!
I Have painted the chipboard tree gold and spread some green paint randomly with my finger above it! I have also used two pieces of Christmas words!!
 And Here is a door hanger for decoration!! I have used the reindeer which was painted gold and then I added some red stickles and the tree was painted green with distress stain, after that I covered it with stickles and added some red stickles to look like ornaments! I have also used the Christmas word "I believe"!!!
I hope you give it a go and make your own gifts and decorations using Scrapmatts Christmas collection!!!
