A gift bag by Irena Vohlídková - Iriska

Czas na trzecie - i niestety ostatnie - spotkanie z naszym Gościem.
Dzisiaj nasza utalentowana Gościnna Projektantka- Irena Vohlídková - Iriska prezentuje swoją śliczną torebkę na prezent! 

It's time for the third and the last meeting with our Guest. 
Today our talented Guest Designer- Irena Vohlídková - Iriska presents her lovely giftbag!

I wanted to give a gift in a special way - I’ve chosen a trip to Italy voucher including Rome visit. It’s been only a few months I visited this capital of Italy and I bought black and white cards that I used for this crafting! Maybe you’ve realized my favorite color - and it shouldn’t be missing in this project. 

I’ve used the brown paper bag and it has been partly covered in white gesso. Also, the gauze was used and I glued it on to the background and I put there gel medium in which I poured powertex balls different sizes. 

I prepared feather chipboard ephemera and I painted them in my favorite colors as red and black. The photo background is made of colorful papers. 

I’ve added enamel dots, threads and everything is glued on by 3D adhesive tape. 

I gave her the gift and I hope that she will be happy not about the gift itself but also about the package.

Heart box


dziś pokażę Wam co zrobiłem ze starego pudełka po filiżance. Ma bardzo charakterystyczny kształt, więc oczywiście dobrałem odpowiednią kolorystykę.


today I show you what I've made with old box by cup. It has a charakteristic shape, then I've chosen the right color.

Zacząłem od pokrycia całego pudełka białym gesso. Następnie ułożyłem na wieczku kompozycję z elementów metalowych oraz odcisków z foremek. Całość pokryłem podwójną warstwą białego gesso.

I started by covering the whole box with white gesso. In next step I created a composition with metal elements and shapes from mold. The whole composition I covered with white gesso twice.

Zdecydowałem się na różowy kolor. Użyłem więc trzech mgiełek w różnych odcieniach tego koloru. Na koniec dodałem też nieco różowego tuszu wodnego.

I decided on a pink color. I used then mists in three different shades of this color. I added a little bit pink water ink too.

Dla kontrastu dodałem czarny napis oraz kilka chlapnięć czarnym splashem.

I added for contrast a black word and few splashes of black splash ink.

Hi everyone! My name is Shona Keehn, and I am from beautiful British Columbia Canada. I am thrilled to be part of the 13 Arts family and excited to share projects with you all! I get so much inspiration from this wonderful industry and I hope that I can inspire you! I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years now and like to change up my style frequently and enjoy making layouts, mixed media, altered pieces and canvas art! You can visit me on my blog at and Instagram:  skeehnsicshona



Hello! My name is Monika Januszewska-Rosik, aka Galaxia. I live in the polish countryside with my husband, a dog and two cats. I love to experiment and create dimensional, layered projects especially altered art and layouts. I like the most vintage and retro style, but I also make a colorful projects with shimmer and gitter. I am so excited to work with 13arts products, it will be a great experience!
My social media:



Hello my name is Anguree and I live in the beautiful Northern Territory of Australia.  I have been creating since ever I can remember. Growing up, I've always been the little girl who quietly sat down to do some stamping, painting, drawing or beading. Colours, craft  and mixed media have always captured my imagination and it comes to no surprise that these are still the things makes me happy today. I mainly create layouts, cards and ATC'S, but enjoy creating the occasional art journal or OTP project. My style varies from one project to another and you can expect me to create anything from pretty and girly to grungy,modern and almost  graphic. My work is generally characterised by the emotion it carries and balance between details and white space. 
I have been scrapbooking for more than 10 years, but have only joined the world of online challenges and blogs 5 years ago. Since my introduction to this new world of inspiration I have been incredibly blessed to  have my work featured in various magazines and regularly write articles for the Australian Simply Cards Magazine. With the help of beautiful friends I recently  had the opportunity to teach in shops in both Australia and South Africa.
I'm truly humbled by the opportunities that I have been given and can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Over the last few years, I have had the pleasure to work with a range of beautiful people and currently design for  three international manufacturers manufacturers  including 13arts, 49AndMarket, ScrapFX . I am part of an Aussie Kit Club, Scrappy Chat Designs and also design for  2 challenge blogs including More than Words Challenge Blog, Kraft Plus.
I am really excited to have the chance to share this passion with you and  hope that it will encourage you to create and to play along with our challenges. My wish for you  is that you will experience the same joy in creating and find the same support and love in the friendships and relationships this little industry helps you to cultivate.



Hello, my name is Christine, I'm from Quebec in Canada. I'm a mother of two boys Felix 13 years old and Gabriel 8 years old. I started to do some scrapbooking 12 years ago but I practice it more regularly for 2-3 years. I like everything related to art, mediums, colors, textures .... I love discovering new techniques. I do not have a particular style, I like to try different things. I am very honored and happy to join the 13@rts team, it is a dream come true.
