Minialbum - Witching Hour

Hello crafty friends!

As you can remember, I was totally in love with our devil, so he needed to find his place on my next Halloween project. It's a minialbum in mixed media style and I used a mix of wooden shapes and cutting dies and some suitable embellishments.


more details 
can you find here
 




... and as the moonlight shone faintly on the clearing, one discovered the enchanted castle

And now get enchanted and plunge into the wonderful
world of creativity!
Happy crafting!

A new tree house for Maja Design

Hello crafty friends!

When we were hiking in the autumn forest, we discovered a new house for our dog.  
Filou had to examine it closely and it seems as if it meets his requirements ;-) 
Back at home, he has come to love his soft dog basket and of course our sofa again,
 because it's much more comfortable as he whispered to me.

That was my inspiration for this new autumn layout in mixed media natural style.


more details can you find here



Thanks for your visit!
Have a wonderful day!

Halloween - Fire and Flame for Calico Craft Parts

Hello crafty friends!

As I discovered the awesome Winged Devil 
I was totally in love because his great batman wings and the hanging foot exude so much vitality.  
At the same time, he seems very mysterious, cunning and devious. 
He should become my eyecatcher for a new Halloween shadow frame. 


more details can you find here



His sitting posture was perfect for putting him on a home-made fireplace.
The flickering flames were created with orange neon luminous paint by Decoart.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice - Goethes Zauberlehrling

Hello crafty friends!

I was inspired from this well known poem from Goethe 
and had a lot of fun to create a tag for this story.

 Flow, flow onward
Stretches many
Spare not any
Water rushing,
Ever streaming fully downward
Toward the pool in current gushing.

Come, old broomstick, you are needed,
Take these rags and wrap them round you!
Long my orders you have heeded,
By my wishes now I've bound you.
Have two legs and stand,
And a head for you.
Run, and in your hand
Hold a bucket too. 

... the whole poem can you find here 

https://lyricstranslate.com/de/der-zauberlehrling-sorcerers-apprentice.html

Go, I say,
Go on your way,
do not tarry,
water carry,
let it flow abundantly,
and prepare a bath for me!

https://lyricstranslate.com/de/der-zauberlehrling-sorcerers-apprentice.html

Go, I say,
Go on your way,
do not tarry,
water carry,
let it flow abundantly,
and prepare a bath for me!
 
Come on now, old broom, get dressed,
these old rags will do just fine!
You're a slave in any case,
and today you will be mine!
May you have two legs,
and a head on top,
take the bucket, quick
hurry, do not stop!

My blue Jeans for Maja Design

Welcome!


Today a season inspired layout, Fall time is the best time to go on a discovery tour through the forest and to rustle in the fragrant autumn leaves.

What can be better than a wonderful walk through a colourful forest
in your favourite pair of jeans?!



 I was inspired to make a natural rustic style layout. 
For that I also worked with papers from our Denim & Friends paper collection, with corrugated cardboard, blue color shades and suitable autumn chipboards, wooden shapes and embellishments.
 
some close up's


corrugated cardboard and leftovers from 'Wood' as frame wood planks


autumnal embellishments with a fabric denim star as tag


I love the natural wooden look in brown shades
a perfect addition for seasonal layouts
and so I used
 
some small wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts: 



Enjoy your day!

Fright Night

Hello crafty friends!



  I'm back with a new inspiration for you. 
So let's start with our monthly challenge at SASPC
- it is - as usual - an


themed challenge and all kinds of projects (except digitally created ones) are welcome! So show us your tags, cards, art journal pages, canvases, altered objects, drawings, paintings, sketches....whatever you're up to as long as it fits our challenge themes steampunk or industrial.
 
October has begun, yes it's time for Halloween, but not those nasty bloody monster stories, I love mystical and imaginative tales and so I was inspired to create a new Halloween mixed media canvas.

...Once upon in a cold, gloomy night when a strange light appeared behind the tombstone. Who drove his mischief there??? ...



I used a lot of Sizzix Halloween dies, old and new, I must say a collection of my favourites :-)

some details


T.Holtz transparent tiles -Halloween- stamped with white ink pad 
behind it - embossed tombstone (cutting die Sizzix 'Headstone)

 one of my absolutely favourite dies Sizzix 'Branch Tree'



 Sizzix Tim Holtz Alteration Cobweb in background 
with Sizzix Thinlits 'Feather & Ravens' in 3D look in front


Thinlits die Fall Foliage on a structure paper



 3D Embossing folder 'Lumber' and cutting die Sizzix Alterations 'Planks'



My  teamies at SASPC have come up with many 
inspiring and different versions
on the theme this time.
Please have a look and feel you inspired to create your own idea
  it can also be a Halloween project ;-)

We are looking forward to see your new creations! 
Happy crafting!
