13arts March challenge

Good morning everyone. Hoping you are all well.. 

A new challenge has gone live over at 13arts and this time its a really fun one! 

The challenge is to create a project ( can be ANYTHING) with no paper on the background. Instead we are asked to create our own background that can be based on mixed media products or dictionary/book paper. Just hop on over to the blog and you will find all the details there..

All materials I have used here are available at 13arts store HERE and The Flying Unicorn HERE 

I have used the gorgeous Timeless collection from 13arts once again for my latest project for them. I can't seem to get enough of this collection. It is SO versatile.. has so many colour combinations and styles you can achieve from just the 1 collection. 

I also used some 13arts mixed media products here which I will detail below. 

Remember all 13arts products are available at the 13arts store HERE or The Flying Unicorn HERE 

"6" card

I started this card by applying Tim Holtz tissue paper on the background with 13arts Gel Medium and then applying some 13arts Gesso over it before wiping the excess off with a baby wipe. 

  I then dropped some 13arts Blue Ink on my craft mat and wiped my card across it to give it a messy look. 

I then adhered strips of Timeless paper and masking tape, and some 13arts chipboard , flowers and sequins to make up some layers. 

I finished it with some splatters from 13arts black ink for some contrast.
