12 Tags of 2016 March

Welcome everyone!

I'm a little bit late this month, april is coming soon,
nature is awaking from hibernation, spring has come!
 and so I thought on Rain & Sunshine
and the saying
"April showers bring may flowers"

"April, April der weiƟ nicht, was er will.
Mal Regen und mal Sonnenschein,
dann hagelt's wieder zwischendrein"


Have a nice easter sunday!

Gothic necklace

Welcome friends!
today a new inspiration for you and our Steampunk Challenge month theme

Anything goes Steampunk/ Industrial

I love it to try new techniques and so I decided to use a wonderful black lace and some metal embellishments together to a necklace in gothic style.

 My friend has wanted a new necklace suitable to her steampunk outfit and i thought,
ups I have not yet done, but I will try it!

and I must say, it wasn't easy for me,  it was very fiddly!
oh, oh  I had to leave my comfort zone 
 again and again :-)

but now it's finished
and I'm really happy about it :-)

 My  teamies at SASPC have come up with many inspiring and different  versions 
on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and have fun!!
Lucky winners will win a prize from our  sponsor

 DecoArt Media


 :-) Now it's your turn :-)
Happy crafting!

E = m x c²

Welcome friends!

I was inspired from this challenge theme
Mixed media place - #17 Coffee

and today my secret recipe ;-)
we all know Einstein's  famous formula
and that's my individually
E - nergy = M ilk x C offee² 

COFFEE , you mean my survival drink :-) ?!

and a lot of detail photo's

I have made my own background with a lot of texture, ink and stamps, 
really a mixed media project with aroma :-) !

I used old jute fabric as coffee sack, coffee beans and powder,
acrylic dimensional writer 
walnut distress dye ink
background stamps
and texture paper.

''Sei stark!''
redest du wieder mit deinem Kaffee, Schatz ?'' 

Simon says stamp Monday challenge - Make your own background

Celebrate Springtime

Welcome !

today a new project for Le Tresors de Luxe .
It's a shadow frame in altered art.

When the first birds are twittering and 
the nature is awaking from hibernation, 
 spring has come!  

that was in my mind as I saw our moodboard this month

my inspiration was the nature feeling in colors brown and green

 for the background I used old bookpaper, a stamp from La Blanche
 and  a stencil with white gesso.

 a mixture by beautiful organza spring flowers and laces 
and a little bunny (cut out black paper)

 3D butterfly a print out with old bookpaper 
crackle effects on frame with crackle paint

 materials, which I have used
can you see here

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

Colorful world

Welcome crafty friends!

My favorite work is to try new things and to leave my comfort zone, because where is the creativity, if you do always the same?!
Yes, I love the grungy industrial  and delicate romantic colors , mostly
tone in tone or how my dad says
harmoniously :-)
but I'm also a girl, which is inspired by nature 
and so I wanted to make a project with rainbow theme.
 For such experiences I always like to use my art journal book.

used materials

 not the best photo I'm afraid, but it's really difficult with black background paper

 can you see my shadow face?
 it was made with a stencil and metallic lustre silver and my fingers 

  for the other stencils I used modeling or texture paste
rainbow color circle with shimmer mists and a selfmade masking template
in centre another face stencil
i love this faces, because I'm not the biggest painter

my thoughts behind this project
The world is colorful
Let's inspire!

I choose a new colorful technique with spray paints and a mask
Happy weekend!
