Art Journal Cover - Springtime Feelings

 

Welcome creative friends!

 

I created a textile collage with leftovers from various fabric and laces

as cover for an Art Journal.

I always love to use the MDF shapes as 3d elements in their original form. 

Love this special wood expression, often I also split them 

and create new impressions with it.

 

 

 sewed a small house with different fabrics together

 and decorated it with a mini door in grunge style

Night of a full moon with 13arts

 

Welcome creative friends!

 

Have you ever experienced the magical aura of the full moon?

I discovered an enchanted figure on a meadow 😀 

Was that reality or a dream?


 

As I saw the amazing background paper 'In the woods' 

from the 'Queen of the Night' my imagination was awakened

 and I was inspired to create a mixed media layout.

Together with this great Dark Queen motif from this collection 

a meadow in moonlight was created.

 

To make the queen look even more alive, she got a shimmering skirt

 made of wide ribbon and small green feathers, as well as transparent wings.

 

used 13arts products 

 


 

 Besides papers from 'Queen of the Night ' collection I also used

papers and elements from 'Aurora', also a very suitable collection for fantasy stories

in addition transparency foil, stencils, glitter ink and floristic materials

all this products can you find at 13arts

I hope I could awaken your imagination and inspiration.

 

Happy creating!

A Book Nook - what is that?? with Dusty Attic

 

Welcome creative friends!

 

In simply terms it's a Book shelf insert or 

a Schaufenster im Bücherregal in german 😀.

Most of the time you see these elaborate pieces in connection

 with Harry Potter stories, beautiful and enchanting,

 but often quite expensive. 

 

I think you can do even more with these book nooks. 

I know many who have a  garden book library

 and to this theme fits these creative idea wonderful too.

You can illuminate it and it is a wonderful gift idea.

 

 

I had the courage to make the blank myself out of 3 mm MDF material.

 It has the following dimensions: 10 x 19 x 15 cm B/H/T.

You can do that, but it's easier to buy a finished blank. 

Dusty Attic doesn't have one yet, but your day may come

😏😃.

It's relatively easy to  make,

I used scrapbook paper to cover the walls, a lot of suitable chipboards, 

and a mould for the garden path.
