'Artsy' tag for 13arts

Warm hellos to my crafty friends...
I have a tag I created for 13arts to share today.

'Be creative'

This tag is a testament to never giving up on a project! I didn't really know
where I was going when I started this, I just covered a tag in black gesso and then grabbed 
a cool 13 arts stencil and used the black gesso again to add some artsy words.
I really didn't like the tag at all, but I pressed forward, adding some Rainbow 
Duo watercolor in 'Lilac' and some this point wondering if I should 
pitch the whole thing in the bin...but I kept going adding some clocks and butterflies
that I cut out of a paper from the 'His & Hers' collection, some flowers and a torn up black doily.
Then my last step was to add some sparkly white iridescent glitter and some silver
microspheres with gel medium. After it was all done, I was really surprised to find.... I loved it!
Sooooo, the moral of the story here is don't give up on a crafty project until you've given it a chance, 
you might be really happy that you didn't :)

For a full list of all the beautiful 13 arts products I used,
you can see my blog post here.

rainbows, you can find that here.

'I will always love you'

Hello girls, I have another layout to share with you 
created with the January 'Be Mine' kit from Scraps of Elegance.

'I will always love you'

I was thinking when I created this layout that sometimes you don't always need the most expensive mediums to make a great page. I used a really cheap ($10) watercolor set that I bought at Michael's and I really love how it has a whole range of colors all right there in the same box. I went from oranges to reds to pinks to purples in my background feeling really inspired by the colors in my photo and I love how all these different shades blended together. I don't usually use that many colors on one page so I really like how it turned out :)

I used a lot from the main kit and floral addon, the pretty Blue Fern Studios papers,
the heart chipboard piece that I colored with my watercolors, the brass heart and keys,
the gold foil dollies, the little wood embellishments,
the tags with the twine and some Prima flowers.

You can purchase our kits here, and don't forget to post your projects
created with our kits into the facebook group here.

Thanks for looking!

'Just the two of us'

Hello my crafty girls, I hope you're all doing well :)
It seems like life has been conspiring against me lately to not have any time to do what 
I love, which is play with my new kits! But I did finally get some time
this past weekend to start creating with the super pretty
kit called 'Be Mine' from Scraps of Elegance.

'Just the Two of Us'

This layout is dedicated to my husband, my 'rock' and my best friend. Here's to all the unsung heroes
of our lives, the ones that wake up at 4:30 every morning, drive insane miles, work stressful jobs,
and still come home with a smile and wanting hugs. We've been through good times and bad, and he's still the one I want share my life with. I'm so grateful to this guy, he's given me a fantastic life in this amazing country I love so much and a sweet boy that is my sun, moon and stars.
I call him my 'rock' and he calls me the 'glue'.... (so romantic right? lol)...
....he says without me he and the boy would fall apart ;)
The February kit is filled with such beautiful and romantic goodies that I'm sure you'll
be inspired to create something celebrating the love of your life...

Here is the kit:

And don't forget to check out our blog here to get inspired 
by all the amazing designers on our team.

Here are a few close ups:

The title chipboard was so large that it just worked better for me to use it 
in building my layers under my photo, but I love the sentiment.

I had started splashing around some pink ink on my background when all 
of a sudden I realized it had started to look like a perfect :)

I used just about everything from the main kit, the papers, the tiny glittery hearts, 
the pink pearly drops, the ephemera pack, the gold clips, and the red twine.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day my sweet friends!
See you soon,

'Believe' a new layout for 13 arts

Hello my crafty friends, I hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying winter?
Sometimes it's so nice to have a great excuse for not going outside but to stay cozy,
put on some music and just let your mind and your hands wander and get messy :)
I am back today to share another layout with more violet colors, this time for my
favourite brand, 13 arts!


I started with the beautiful paper called 'Dreamland' from the 'Out of the Blue' collection,
then layered on some modeling paste through some 13 arts stencils, and then splashed on lots of
13 arts mediums, inks and paints in 'Violet' and 'Bordeaux'.

To find the products that I used here, please visit the 13 arts online store here.
And to check out our blog with lots of beautiful inspiration, please go here.

I love the sparkling glitter paints from 13 arts! Here I used the silver glitter paint and
some silver microspheres.

Thanks for looking!
Hugs, Lisa xo
