best time ever and a 13arts tutorial 36

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, March 20, 2014 @ 2:00 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! It's my turn to share a project on the 13arts blog ~ if you get a chance, please be sure to stop by ~ click HERE. I made a layout featuring a photo of Meredith along with a variety of fabulous 13arts products. To create the background, I combined pretty papers from both the Timeless and All is Love collections. 
The title was made using one of the many versatile fun  sentiments from Timeless Subtitles:
I added color to the metal flower embellishments using the following mists / sprays: Pearl Mist ~ BrownPearl Mist ~ Navy BlueChalk Mist ~ Chalk Dark BrownChalk Mist ~ Chalk TurquoiseWater Ink ~ Navy Blue:

To create the trio of clock embellishments, I adhered acrylic dots to 13arts patterned paper, then trimmed around the perimeter:
In case you are curious as to how I created this layout, here are several step shots I took along the way.
Apply a think coat of Gesso ~ Acrylic Primer to the background and embellishments:
Apply Pearl Gold paint to background and embellishments:
Randomly apply the following mists starting with lightest color first and allow to dry in between applications: 13arts Ayeeda: Pearl Mist ~ BrownPearl Mist ~ Navy BlueChalk Mist ~ Chalk Dark BrownChalk Mist ~ Chalk TurquoiseWater Ink ~ Navy Blue:
Randomly apply Gold Glitter paint to flower embellishments:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Scrapuj.pl sketch challenge:
Many thanks for visiting!
