Altered Bottle - 13 Arts


Hello 13@rts Fans!!  Shona here today with a fun altered bottle. I love to save cool looking bottles and create something new. All product links at the bottom of the post.  
 
 

To start I did two coats of 13 Arts White Gesso on the bottle. For the second layer I  used a small sponge to give it a textured look.

 
Next I made a mixture of Clear Crackle Glaze, Modeling Paste and Magic Powder to thicken it up. I applied this on sections of the bottle and let it dry overnight. This will give me a crackle texture in the background.

 
While I wait, I picked out my flowers and applied a coat of white Gesso to them. Some dark colored flowers will need a second coat. This is going to protect the flowers from soaking up the mist.

 
After I adhered the flowers to the bottle it was time to add the mists. I did this by applying the Mists with a paintbrush and using a water brush to move and soften the colors. I used Ayeeda Chalk Mists in Yellow Amber, Dark Brown and Woodbine. Dry between colors and layers. This can be a long process with all the drying but I used a heat tool to help. I added extra layers of color where needed. 
 
After I was happy with the color I added my Glass Miscrospheres and Mica flakes with some Gel Medium. Lastly I did some dry brushing on the flowers and Microspheres with white Gesso, to add some softness and blend the project together.

That is it for me today, I hope you try to alter a bottle, I know I will do more in the future… Take care and happy scrapping!!

April Limited Edition Kit from My Creative Scrapbook


Hi everyone! Today I have a pictorial layout to share created with the gorgeous April Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook! I used the beautiful Prima pieces in this kit. 


First off I did a bit of stencil work with some Distress ink and the fun stencil in the kit. Now pick your pieces to use as layers on the background, distress all of the edges and I just stapled them together.

 
Now adhere the layers to the background page. I used a butterfly punch and punched out a few butterflies to add to the layout, inking the edges of each one. Time to add some flowers and that photo! 

I added the butterflies, some raffia behind the photo and a few of the pieces from the kit. 



Here are a few more close ups. 


 
 

That is it for me today. Make sure to check out all the gorgeous kits available this month! I will be back with more shares from the April kit! Take care and happy scrapping!

April Challenge - 13@rts


Hello 13@rts Fans!!  There is a new monthly challenge up at 13@rts and here is my take on the inspiration photo. The photo is my sister, mom, and grandmother…3 generations of beautiful women! I went with the His and Hers collection as it is perfect for this heritage photo. I first covered the paper with Clear Gesso, this helps protect your background when you use mists etc.
 

 

The chipboard pieces are all from Creative Embellishments. I covered them with Gesso first, added some Pearl Olive Green Mist and some crackle on top. I soaked up any extra mist with some gauze and used that behind the photo. With the His and Hers collection there are lots of pieces you can fussy cut to add to your projects. This butterfly clock is so cool and cut from the papers. I added some Burnt Sienna Chalk Mist with a paint brush on this butterfly clock piece. The pretty flowers are from 49 and Market.

Once everything was put together I added some Mica flakes in Silver and Gold with Gel Medium. I also added a few Gold Micospheres for added texture and dimension. The title sticker is from the Secret Letters Sticker Sheet.

 


On my last close up you can see I did some shading behind the cluster. I used Light Brown Pearl Mist and Burnt Sienna Chalk Mist with a paint brush to get the shadow effect. I find this brings your eye attention to the photo in the center.

Beauty Lives Within Each of Us - 49 and Market


Hello 49 and Market fans!! Today I have a heritage layout to share featuring the gorgeous Tattered Garden Collection! I adore the beautiful soft colors of this collection! I layered my background with Tattered Letters and Tattered Flourish on top.

 
I used pieces from the Dandelion Fields and Tattered Garden Laser Cut Sheets. Love all of the new Laser Cut Sheets…so simple to add extra embellishments and layers to your project!

 
I did stamping in the background with Pascale’s 1787 Stamp and Gabi’s Texture Stamp Sets. I fussy cut a few little butterflies from the papers and added them with a little pop up.

 
The beautiful cluster is a mix of pieces from the Laser Cut Sheets, Garden Seeds in Sandcastle, Floral Mixology in Mudslide, Seaside Blooms in Sandcastle and Buttermilk Botanical Blends. I love this soft color mix with for this heritage piece.


The little bird cage and bird are also pieces from the Dandelion Fields Laser Cut Sheet.
