I will See(A) you :-)

Welcome crafty friends!

Today I want to share with you an idea for a home decoration piece, 
it's also very practical and useful.
Summertime means also holiday time, friends and neighbors are on the road and leave you the keys for garden maintenance or  mailbox. My
keychain is big and so I  had to look forever for the foreign keys.
I've built a simple key stand, now I can find the keys faster.

Happy summer holidays!

# Curious for Scrap FX

Hello friends!

I was inspired to create a new Junk Journal.
That's the first pages in steampunk style with one of my favourite theme 'Under the SEA'.

I was in love with this amazing seahorse, so many details and very filigree, a beautiful black contrast, that looks like a silhouette. I added some mini cogs too, painted with some acrylic rust colours from DecoArt.

  • a mixed media page, where I used the stencil Continuous chain with texture paste a grunge element on the left side 
  •  Coral stamp one of my favourite background stamps, is always very suitable for nautical projects
  • chipboard 'Suspendid Time' was cut into several parts, I used a gorgeous embossing powder 'Hammered Metal'

Have a good time!

Time together

Hello friends,

It's time for a new inspiration summer layout.
 I love to use structure paper and try out new ideas.
I had some leftovers from a white wallpaper and thought, a beautiful texture,
can wallpaper be inked in?, which color is suitable? 

I used a piece of wallpaper in the centre of my maritim layout,
a perfect addition for me to the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

more details can you find

 I tried with Glimmer Mist from Tatterd Angels and I must say, it's a wonderful amazing effect, because it doesn't spread evenly and the end result will be very natural.

I used also some cutting dies from Joy craft (waves, kelp) and added some
handmade embellishmets made with molds and modelling clay.

I wish you a wonderful summertime!

Key of Happiness - Der Schlüssel zum Glück

Hallo allerseits!

Es ist wieder Zeit für eine neue Inspiration für unseren Steampunk Challenge Blog.
Wir freuen uns jeden Monat auf's Neue eure Ideen im Steampunk bzw. Industrial Grunge Style zu bestaunen!

Da ich auch gern im Scrapbookbereich werkle, ist es heute zur Abwechslung ein Mixed Media Layout im Grunge Stil. Ein Stil der etwas chaotisch ist und meist mit dunklen abgenutzten Elementen aus dem Handwerkerbereich ergänzt wird, das Recycle Thema wird hier ganz groß geschrieben -Schrauben, Federn, Kugellager, Einzelteile von alten Uhren, Werkzeugen ... und, und der Fantasie sind keine Grenzen gesetzt!
Das Spannende daran ist, man ist völlig frei in seiner Gestaltung. Man sagt aber auch gern das ist der  - Mir ist alles egal - Look, hmm ganz so sehe ich das nicht, wenigstens mir muss es gefallen, oder?!

Lasst euch inspirieren und versucht euch selbst!
Ich wünsche euch ganz viel Spaß dabei!

Gift idea - 'Out of Order'

Welcome friends!

 It's summertime! Time for vacations and wanderlust!
The yearning for a cool place for a little peace and relaxation is stronger than ever. 

 Not everyone can go to the sea and many of us make holidays in their gardens or on balconies. But when you spend your holidays at home, 
you don't always have the peace you want.  
People always want something - no problem if it's friends, 
but sometimes I'm simply OUT OF ORDER - especially when the last bits of patience have gone. 

That was my idea behind this project. It's a gift and you can use it as door hanger
 or as a mood barometer, so others know if it is safe to disturb ;-).

Happy weekend!

 what you can do with the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

It's a one sheet minialbum, that means for the basic you only need one background paper in 12 x 12".

I used some photo's from our sheltie, a beautiful memory on last summer
and really he is an aquaholic, even like me :-)

where I used white crackle paint from DecoArt for an altered effect
