GD Berry Bleu 71

 Hi everyone,
I'm very happy and honored about this new GD by
Berry 71 bleu
thank you very much for invinting me :-)

- Books are friends -

a new art journal page in altered art style.
In background I worked with a napkin (books), 
then I used a lot of stencils and stamps.
I love 3D and special effects, here I stamped a face. 
In the upper part I made a cut, used a die for the tag and swirl.
So you can enter in minds of the lady :-)
and my page!


 for this page I used for the first time Decoupage Antique as glue 
and Antiquing Cream Titanium white and I must say I was thrilled about the result, you can see a really good aged effect.
The cream is fast drying but can easily be wiped back from undesired areas.

Simon says stamp Monday Challenge 
 No ordinary paper (old book paper, napkin + natural gift paper for the tag)

Happy crafting!!

Hi everyone,

today a new project from the experimental laboratory ;-) it was my first try with a chalky finish paint. 
What should I say I was thrilled about the matte look in vintage style. I used an old wood hanger, because Upcycling is my second name ;-) .
 Just get started and try out :-)


+ distress inks Walnut stain , Faded Jeans
+ chipboards from Creative embellishments
+ Staz on Spiced Chat
+ Viva Decor stamp ''At the seaside''

How I made this:

1. undercoating with Fluid Acrylics Blue green light + Cobalt Teal
2. painted on upper edge with Titanium White
3. after drying, primer with chalky finish Timeless
4. apply crackle glaze -results based on thickness of application
5. after drying use a stencil and stamp
7. use spray paints - here Distress Ink + water + mini Mister
8. finally glue on chipboards

 with my first nautical knot ;-)

             crackle glaze -results based on thickness of application
 use brushes or a palette knife

Creative Embellishments - use wood, inspire by blue heaven
Happy crafting
