Autumn fun

Hello!

today a little tag with a fun idea. 
Our children loves walk through the forest, the rustling of leaves 
and collect forest fruits.

You know you can make butterflies or dragonflies from maple seeds (nose maple)?
I wanted to try how it act with acryl metallic paints and I was amazed how well this works.


  Tips & Tricks


 I used three nose maple -
 2 adhere to each other and 
the 3. break on two and glue reversed

Have fun :-)

ART - My World


Welcome!

I was in love with the new transparency sayings from Scrap FX,
 they are exactly rightfor my art journal
ART - My world
 I drew a young woman, a dreamer in gray everyday life
which is inspired from nature and all the beautiful things of the world.

She loves the freedom

a space to develop their creativity and put their ideas into practice.

this very inspiring product is made from black card
it's a very expressive form and ideally suited fo
my art journal page



Stand for something, even it means
standing alone
often times the one who flies solo
has the strongest wings.

what a beautiful right saying, I love it!



And that does it for me today! 
I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of products from Scrap FX.

Made with love

Hello!

Today a Layout,  a quite different example. 
Our children loves to help her aunt in the kitchen, no joke :-)
However they want always baking.
 
Even when something is required very quickly -
we make rainbow cupcakes or easier
 vanilla cupcakes.
The best of all is licking the spoon
and playing with colors.

Afterwards my kitchen is a pigsty ;-)
but they had a lot of fun.  


 It' a real delight for all!

Happy weekend!

Let time stand still

Welcome!

A new project for our SASPC Steampunk DT 
with monthly theme
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

I decided to make a project in industrial style. 
It's a new cover for my timer.

 



I used an embossing folder for the background, 
a very thin coat masking fluid over it
(this technique can you find under Andy Skinner's workshops) 
and some acrylic fluids.



some metal embellishments were painted also with acrylic fluids, 
a little hand was made with a mould and dry clay,
 together with some old clock pieces.

Books and friends

Welcome scrappy friends!

a new Layout with some beautiful chipboards from Scrap FX.
It's a GD project for Colors, Inspirations and Stories,
CSI 211. 

  I thought of the old books with gold edges from grandma's large shelf
 and so I created a mixed media layout with vintage touch.

A new canvas with a vintage Jeans touch. It's a fabric paper collage.
 Blue and smart brown tones is such a lovely combination
 together with some fabric jeans pieces.

 and some chipboards from Dusty Attic, 
stamped on background of paper and ribbon pieces.




A beautiful  photo that remember me on my childhood, 
I always wanted to have a jeans dungarees and roam through nature, 
unfortunately I didn't such a wonderful trousers, 
but all the same, however I was in garden and nature out and about.

and it was also a delight for me to play with some fabric jeans leftovers
