Guest designing at 13 Arts!!!

I was delighted a few weeks ago when I was offered to be a guest designer at 13 Arts, the trendy Polish manufacturer of beautiful scrapbooking papers.
I knew of their two collections and also of their awesome and very talented owner/designer Aida Domisiewicz aka Ayeeda in the scrapping world, from among other places the CSI site. She makes the most beautiful textured pages. -And as you will see she even designs lovely papers.
The latest news is that she is brancghing out into mists, gesso etc for mixed media work.

Here is the first of three pages I have made so far, and I have a couple more in the pipline so to speak...

I primed my paper with gesso and used a mask with large dots. I used different mists and ink on top and blended them. I wanted to accent the pink colours in the paper and show that they can easily be adapted to a romantic style.

The pretty yellow flower is by Manorhouse Creations as well as the pink one.
The white rose is from 13 Arts. I cut my title from the accessories-sheet which has a lot of great elements like banners and stuff.

I love the look of the brick patterned paper. I cut a frame from it to go all along the edges of my page. I added some cute pink buttons from Doodlebug as a contrast to the paint and shabbiness of the overall page.
The cute frame was made using a Sissix framelits die. It is one of my faves at the moment.
And for the fence I used a die by Cheery Lynn.

That's all for today my friends. I make this a quick one as I am having internet trouble (...again..!) and am typing this at work after hours....
I hope you like my page and will be back to see the rest of what I made for 13 Arts.
Soon I'll be back to share the new colour combo from Les Papiers de Pandore and my take on it!

Hugs, and thanks for any comments!
