13 Arts Fans!!! Today I would like to share with you a fun layout I
made using lots of 13 Arts goodies, inspired by this month's moodboard at Dusty Attic, and also by this
layout of the very talented Stacey Young. As always I have put together
a little step-by-step tutorial for you, this time for the background. I
will also explain how I altered my chipboards with 13 Arts Media when
showing the close-ups, so make sure you read right through!!
Here is the moodboard from Dusty Attic:
was inspired by the blue and purple colors for my layout..... I adore
this combination at the moment, whilst all the flowers in the image
inspired me to create a layout without flowers!!!!
Ornate frame on the photo was painted 13 Arts Matte black paint then
given a very thick coat of clear crackle medium. When the cracks were
dry I have brushed the entire frame with 13 arts White and Silver
glitter paint, using my finger to really fill the cracks. I wiped excess
paint away using a baby wipe. The butterfly (Flutterbies #3) has been
painted with Vivid Violet, Matte Turquoise, and Matte Pea.
have painted 2 Dusty Attic ATC frames #4 with 13 Arts White and Silver
Glitter paint. The second frame has been cut in two with half placed on
the left edge of the page and the other half on the other side of the
photo. The Elegant Swirl #2 has also been cut in 2 with each half placed
either side of the photo beneath the frames. They have been painted
with 13 Arts Matte Turquoise paint. I sprinkled fine turquoise glitter
over them while the paint was still wet. The Stars #3 were given the
same treatment as the Mini Ornate Frame on the photo.
have cut a few different sized banners from 13 Arts papers, then placed
a small chipboard banner (Banners #1) painted with Vivid Violet on top.
Step 1 and 2: Cut a piece of paper from the Color Basics Collection
about a third of the width of the paper, then glue it vertically down
the right-hand side of the page, about 1 inch from the edge. Add a few
pieces of washi tape on both edges of your paper strip then spread gesso
over your page (the washi tape makes spreading the gesso a touch
easier). When your gesso is dry add a couple of strips of the black
checkered paper from the Color Basic Collection, and add some more strips of washi tape in black and blue.
3 and 4: Using Matte Pea and matte Turquoise paint the left hand side
of your page. I have used lots of water to make the paint runny like
watercolor and painted the Matte Pea first then blended the Turquoise
into it. I have painted the left-side with Vivid Violet.
have also mixed a small amount of Pastel Turquoise Mist and Pastel
White Mist in an empty sprayer, with a touch of Chalk Sap Green Mist. I
have added some sprays and splats to my background on the green and
5 and 6: Place a stencil over the top and spray Pastel Black Mist over
the painted areas. Add a little more of the Vivid Violet to the top and
bottom of the page in the center, and add some splatters to the
background. I also added some more of the spray I mixed.
7 and 8: I decided that the paint should continue all the way across
the page so I have filled the gap using the Matte Pea and Matte
Turquoise, I have also darkened the Violet.
I have taken my Color basics Triangle mask and used it to stencil some
modelling paste triangles randomly around the page. When my modelling
paste was dry I went around and painted each triangle with Gesso as
thinner areas of Modelling Paste can sometimes become slightly
transparent and I wanted them to stand out.
9 and 10: Finish your background by adding some splatters of Black Ink
and some stamping for extra texture. Next cut and layer your papers with
some foam tape. Add some calico, waxed cord and sparkly thread where
you want your photo to go.
11: Begin building up your elements. I have added the 2 chipboard
frames to either side of where my photo would go, then added a glitter
polaroid frame, placing my photos on top.
Beneath the photo I have cut and layered some banners with a button, a bow and my title.
have then used a brush to add some glue around my elements and
sprinkled 2 different sizes of Microspheres, and some Mica Flakes. When
the glue was dry I have mixed some Vivid Violet Paint in the lid with lots of water and painted
it over the Microspheres and Mica Flakes, creating more texture and
depth. I have also added some little table confetti stars, pearls, and
12: On the right hand side of the photo add your mini Chipboard Frame
and butterfly. Also tuck in one half of the Swirl beneath the ATC Frame.
Add more Microspheres, Mica Flakes, Stars and Pearls/Enamel dots around
the edge of the paper.
I have also outlined my paper's with a white gel pen.
13: On the left of your page add the other half of the ATC frame and
place a loop of thread and flair on top. Attach the Follow Your Dreams
sticker above the frame and swirl next to the photo, and add the
chipboard stars. Continue with the Microspheres, ect on this side of the
finish off add a few silver glitter heart stickers randomly around the
page, and add your journaling at the bottom of the page on the patterned
That is all from me today. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!!
