Cool & funny

I was looking for a gift for a teen, then I had an idea.
She loves wrinkles dogs, she says cool and funny - 
why not 
and so I decided to create a Layout with your favourite picture. 


"These are not wrinkles,
 these are survival lines of my life.
Each one holds a story, a laugh or a memory.''

This photo makes me smile
Let's face it - Already ironed today ????


  Have a nice time!

What could be nicer in summer holidays than to sit by a campfire on the sea ?!

Camp overnight in your own tent, collect firewood, cook bread and
sausages over a campfire and sing along to a guitar.
You are in the middle of the nature and
only hear the birds singing and the cicadas or the cricket chirping.

Beautiful place - GD A Vintage Journey


 This month the challenge theme
A vintage journey is Stencil it, 
yes, I love it, because a theme with so many opportunities.

I decided to make a mixed media project in industrial style,  a new home decoration piece.

I used 3 several stencils - Rays, Children and the words from DecoArt).
Before it was a letter block set, made of cardboard.

On the basis of white gesso I used some acrylic paints diluted with water 
and crackle paste + texture paste for altered effects.

  For the children stencil black acrylic paint and added a script stamp with white inkpad over the stencils.

some details

I hope you like my inspiration for this beautiful month theme!
Thank you very much 
 Happy crafting!

Celebrate good friends

Hi friends!

today a new art journal page

my big vintage heart was on tour :-)

sad and funny times

''Sometimes we need someone to simply be there, not to fix anything or do anything in particular, but just to let us feel we are supported and cared about.”
