Children's dreams for Christmas Moodboard at 13arts




 Our latest challenge theme at 13arts is in christmas mood.

You think of baking cookies, the smell of baked apples, delicious cocoa or mulled wine.

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout.




I used two papers from the latest Christmas Stories collection, 

with some stripes from the additional paper 'Happy Holidays' 

I created a bow with the classic Santa motif (cutout) as centerpiece.

Have you discovered the latest Katy Sue Design mould yet?

Beautiful, I was thrilled from the beginning, he is so detailed

 and naturally worked and of course you can also make another type of bird from it.

 Imagination knows no bounds. I love to work in monochrome scheme

Gift Card for a visit to Zoo with Dusty Attic


Welcome creative friends!


 I needed a nice wrapping for a ticket to the zoo, the little one loves elephants

 and a special highlight will be the visit to the tropical hall. 


Matching the theme I chose some beautiful chipboards 

from Tropical Foliage & Flowers section

tropical leaves and flowers, a parrot and a diagonal frame

(rectangular frame was cut to fit).



I created a DIN A5 card in mixed media style.

All chipboards were primed with black Gesso and a little bit structure paste,

 and highlighted

 with some metallic waxes. 

Elephant was created with a silicone mold (Katy Sue Designs)

 and Air Drying Modelling Clay.

 Welcome creative friends!


Dark season begins again, a wonderful time to get cozy at home 

and spend some relaxing time reading.  

Magical stories and fairy tales let the imagination run wild and often inspire

 to a new project. 


 I used  some products from the latest

enchanted collection 'Aurora' together with some beautiful chipboards from Dusty Attic.
