magical *13arts*

Sadly,this will be my last blogpost for 13arts.
I have decided to take a year off from all teams.
Not that I will give up all the creativity
but I thought it would be nice to work with no deadlines for a change.
I will take up an old love of mine, photography.
Hubby and I love to make long nature walks and really enjoy being outdoors.
So every week we plan a trip and off we go........packed with my camera, lunch and drinks!

With this said, I would like to thank you Aida and the team for a fabulous year!
Thanks for the opportunity to be part of a wonderful team with such talented ladies!
I'm sure we will be seeing each other!

To all of my friends,
wishing you a fabulous, creative, healthy, sunny and magical new year!
All the best for 2016!

Magical, a winter canvas.
Started by applying modeling paste with the snowflakes stencil to the canvas.
Added the paint colors with some water to let them blend a little.
To get a more wintery/snowy effect, I dabbed some gesso with a sponge. 

White flowers and twigs cluster.

 Wooden mini stars and some white Splash ink.
Love that you can see the texture of the canvas!

The word magical got a coat of the white Splash ink, perfect to get a good white color.

photo frame *13arts*

Photo frame with a photo of the four of us, taken on our last vacation.
We had the most wonderful vacation and I wanted to make something to always remember these special days together.

The shutters had, originally, a bright orange base, so I gave it two coats with gesso first.
Started this project by painting the frame with a mix of gesso and magic powder.
Added some glass filler,glass beads and silver microspheres.

The 'remember' metal plate is from Scrapberry's.

The rolled up flowers were made with the "Secret Letters" papers and the "Winter Tales" papers.
Sheets: my memories, berry and holly.
Although the Winter Tales papers are perfect for winter and christmassy projects,
 this project shows it can be used for any other project as well.

The lovely decorative twigs between the leaves.

Added some chipboard behind the shutters, painted with gesso.

The wooden word 'family'.

Created a lovely texture with the glass filler, glass beads and silver microspheres.
