Celebrate your Life

Welcome everyone,
today a new Layout with stamps and stencils in
in a for me rather unusual color scheme and a different shape. (flower = Sun)
Appropriately titled Zest for life and ''Alles neu macht der Mai''.

 my inspiration was the Quote, ombre and grid effect, studs and the colour scheme pink and blue


Thanks for taking a peek!!

Hi everyone,

Do you have see the new may Tag by Tim Holtz ? :-) ?

 My favourite theme is and remains the Sea!

Bicycle Clock

Welcome friends,

It's time to start a new challenge and this month we want you to incorporate anything that can be connected to "eyes" with your steampunk projects as our theme is 

Goggles, eye charts, dolls eyes, stamped, painted or drawn eyes, can create whatever makes you happy - a tag, an art journal page, a card, a mixed media canvas, some piece of altered art or altered art jewelry,....well, and anything else I just couldn't think about right 

I needed a special gift for a good old friend and I bought this bicycle clock. 
I have pimp up  it to an eye-catcher fit to their equipment on a shelf in her flat.

 And you don't need to show us the "pure steampunk only" attitude to get eligible for our Top3 or the prize draw - if you are for example new to steampunk or simply just don't want to have your project be too industrial looking, a hint of steampunk will do too. But your entry definitely has to be visibly "steampunk-ish" to make it count. 

   Go to the websites of my very talented teamies 
and let your creative self go wild

Happy crafting

May Flowers

 Welcome everyone,

 Our new theme at Our creative corner in this month hosted by
our new very creative Shari is

April Showers bring May Flowers
This month, the challenge is to create something, a mixed-media project, a journal page, a scrapbook page, a card or tag...
Anything, that reflects the Spring rains and/or Spring flowers 
in your part of the world.   

May I introduce Miss Spring :-)

I decided to make a new art journal page to this topic.
Fabulous theme, here it's also said - Alles neu macht der Mai - therefore  I had to try something new. It's a puzzle from various spring flower stamps tulips, daffodil, cherry blossom... and cheerful bright colorful spray paints in Mixed media style.



spray ink

 The teamies at OCC have come up with many inspiring and different mixed-media versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and have fun!!
