The Ice Queen

In an enchanting world of candle light, there 
is a place where young and old can meet for a fairytime 
to simply enjoy a wonderful atmosphere.
A magical winter world with some dancing ballerinas like snowflakes
blue, frosty and cold

I used some old bookpages, maybe from an old fairytale book ? 
No you cannot destroy it, old newspaper pages also worked
simply roll up and stick together
as a wonderful 3D frame

- Magic is believing in yourself -

for the words a black embossing powder wiped with silver acryl paint

if you can do that, you can make anything happen

Enchanting Fantasy for Scrap FX

Now is the best time again for fairytales, with elves, fairies, flowers and butterflies 
they make it possible to create a magic world and transfer 
not only kids but also adults into the land of dreams.

 Scrap FX products

some details

I used the beautiful silhouette butterfly as background (cut in two parts)
very filigree and a good contrast to the mixed media background, 
which was made with some fluid acrylic paints (green, blue, lavender) 
added some stars and butterflies stamps

first I used black magic embossing powder and then for the lower range 
a metalic blue pearl paint

a half golden lace flower as skirt and painted with some acrylic colors

Prima PPP November

Happy crafting!

GD Stamps and Stencils

Welcome Everyone!

I was so pleased to be asked to join you all 
as a Guest Creative Guide here at Stamps and Stencils.

This month the challenge theme is "Tags, Bags & Boxes"
I decided to make a tag in vintage style, Mixed Media ART
 a little christmas inspiration for you.


For the background I used a wonderful deer stamp, an old bookpage, glimmer mist sprays
and a metallic acrylic paint, not to forget a distress ink (Walnut Stain from Ranger)
for an altered effect.

 on the left corner you will see a christmas lantern 
( it's a foil chip from Tatterd Angels), painted with Snow Tex  from DecoArt
together with a pom pom ribbon.
On the upper egde a icecicle die with textured paper.
With two little tags  To - From
 and small silver bells I finished my gift tag.

Many thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

Light and Shadow

Welcome friends!

 Rain and Sunshine
zum heutigen Tag möchte ich euch ein neues Art Journal Projekt vorstellen 
besinnlich und otimistisch

die Augen sind der Spiegel zur Seele, so sagt man doch?
und deshalb habe ich versucht, ein weinendes und ein strahlendes Auge zu zeichnen,
das zusammengesetzt ein Gesicht bildet
und aus dem Buch herausschauen soll

die dunklen und die hellen Seiten,
Momente im  Leben

ein Mix aus dunkleren Distressfarben, 
Vergänglichkeit und das Tempo unserer Zeit,
bei dem man das Gefühl hat, immer nur hinterher rennen zu müssen
oder manchmal nur daneben zu stehen, um dem Wahnsinn 

 und ein Lieblingsspruch von mir 

 die helle Seite ist noch etwas verhalten sonnig,
 ich denke, das könnte auch etwas mit meiner inneren Einstellung zu tun haben
denn von 'heute bin ich weise '
 bin ich noch ein ganzes Stück weit entfernt ;-)
aber beide Seiten reichen sich versöhnlich die Hand!

Ich wünsche euch einen entspannten Sonntag!
xx Kerstin xx

The aged effect mainly based on Walnut Stain Distress ink.

and painted with black gesso, after drying
 I have made a rusty look with some DecoArt Fluid Acrylics and Texture sand paste

used materials from DecoArt
