letterbox *13arts*

Today I have another altered project to share with you.
My daughter had bought a blanco wooden letterbox and she was so kind enough to let me alter it!
After some paints, flowers, pearls, gesso and even some stamping too, this is the final result:

I started this project by creating the background with a mix of magic powder and gesso.
Pressed some grey light grit into the wet mix.
Added all the paints.
Once dry, I gave it a touch with some gesso.
Seriously, I can't make any project without gesso! LOL

Stamped some small letters.

This wooden flourish piece was already on the box.

Purple flowers with a touch of the gesso.

Just love the effect of the gesso and magic powder effect.
Look at those big cracks, sooo yummy! 

These chipboard letters were given a coat with the white Splash ink.

Enjoy your day!

sweet by Ingrid *13arts*

Made this canvas layout for the Scrap Around the World challenge.
13arts is guesting at this challenge this month with many prizes to win!
For more information: SATW-september

This project is based on this beautiful SATW moodboard:

And yes, this little cutie is me! 

Created the background with the flower mask and modeling paste.
Randomly added the paints and the splash inks, white and black.
Gave it a touch with gesso for a more light and dreamy look.

These flowers were lightly extra colored around the edges with the matte raspberry.
The butterflies were cut out from the fly away paper collection.

And of course some twigs. More colors in the 13arts store!

Outlined some edges of the flowers to let them stand out more.

mini canvas *13Arts*

Hi there 13arts friends!
Ingrid here with a small canvas with a mini frame and key.
Used the colors turquoise and purple with a bit of green.
Made the green color by spraying the turquoise on the wet lemon color and some water to let them run.
After all the colors and the textures, I added the splash ink, turquoise and white, for an extra touch.

Lots of dimension by using the frame.

The purple flowers and lilies are also from the 13arts store.

And of course my favorite twigs. More colors in the store!

Created the texture with a mix of gesso, glass filler and some mika flakes.

mixed media bird *13arts*

 Today a fun project: my mixed media bird.
And of course in my favorites colors!
Found this wooden bird (36cm) in a local store and I just had to alter it! 

The fun began with collecting all kinds of metal pieces and buttons.
Added some glass filler, colored grit (grey light) and mika flakes (silver) for extra texture.
Painted all with a coat of gesso before adding all the paints.
For this project I again used my favorite turquoise and blue and green colors.

Some Scrapberry's flowers, also in 13arts store.

Metal pieces from my stash.

Thought the twigs were a nice touch, imitating some feathers.

A large key and metal leaves.

Two old buckles. You can put anything from your stash into a project! 

The bottom stand.
Made all of the textures with glass filler, grit and mika flakes.

This post is all about my love for the Maja papers!
There are also some other cakes I have made with them.
Made this first one with the Summer Crush collection.

Loving the colors from the latest Maja Design papers, esp. the turquoise! 
These cakes are pre made (Pipoos) but you can easily made these with small round boxes.
