13@rts.....

Good Morning, an exciting day here today let me tell you, its my first official post for 13@rts as a guest designer!!!! 

Needless to say the wait was well worth it, I just love, love, love the products, and I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to share with you over the next couple of months..... 




I started with the 13@rts Cosy Evening- ''Family Afternoon'' Hot Chocolate edition pattern paper, I really wanted some thing neutral to be my base, it has a beautiful soft snowflake pattern.






To create the background colour I used 3 different 13@rts Ayeeda inks, they are water based and they are can either give you a soft colour effect or something a little more intense depending on how much water and ink you use.

For the layers I used the 13@rts ''Frosty Days'' Hot Chocolate edition paper, and just distressed the edge, so I could layer it with the 13@rts ''Winter Frame'' which I decided to break up to create smaller clusters of snow flakes.





 I wanted to add more white  back over the colours of the background so I used the 13@rts Ayeeda Gesso- Acyrlic Primer, I just watered some down to allow me to flick it with the paint brush. 




 13@rts Ayeeda inks - Sky Blue, Scarlet, and Violet.


Till next day have a creative day.

Your Creative Wings -

Good Morning, I am here for my first ever post of Your Creative Wings !!!!. I am so happy to join the team with these talented ladies.....  





Today I am sharing something a little girly with a nice corner cluster of flowers and layering some stunning pieces of Your Creative Wings chipboard. 



For me its all about height when doing large flower clusters once you achieve the clusters you want, then its about adding details like the Your Creative Wings - Key to My Heart Charm Set, these bend and manipulate around your cluster really well so there's nothing to worry about when adhering them on the flowers.






A handy tip is when you have some smaller chipboard why not go to your local hardware store and grab some good quality spray paints, and just spray your chipboard for a quick cover.




YCW -Key to My Heart Charm Set

YCW- Scallop Heart Set
YCW - Words - You are loved

YCW - Geo Pointers - Hearts and Home

Crate paper - open book pp, Pink Paislee Bella Rouge pp, Flowers,

Well I hope that I have inspired you.....

Till next time,
Have a creative day
