Halloween - Hidden treasure


today a new project inspiration for our monthly Steampunk Challenge
Anything Goes - Steampunk/Industrial

 Just in time for Halloween :-)
 I was in an old castle and found something there, completely dusty and forgotten. 
It's a real OLD Raven - Pure True ;-).

I used black gesso and the 'Old World' Decoupage paper from DecoArt as basic together with Distress Stain Spray- Walnut ink, 3D elements were made with silicone moulds and modelling clay and painted with black gesso, 
 Antiquing Cream 'Patina Green' and highlighted surface with white gesso from 13@rts
using a dry brush.
it was the same process as last time 
more can you see here

Hopefully you will now feel even more inspired to create your own
  altered bottle maybe as Halloween decoration or 
another Steampunk project in industrial grundge style,
surprised us, we are pleased!
I really enjoyed working on mine!!!

Mixed Media place September Moodboard
I was very inspired from this saying,
because it's exactly this what I feel
when I try out new ideas in projects

13arts #59 Inktober
I also used white gesso from 13@rts 

Mixed Media Art October
I think Halloweentime is a great time for fantasy, or?!
I was inspired from the dark colors and the mysterious lights on your moodboard

Many thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

Halloween - Haunted Manor

Hi friends!

 And with this story of the "haunted house" from my friend Claudia 
 began the extraordinary making of a very special house
oder auch hier
die Donnerwetter - dolle Hütte genannt ;-).

Das verwunschene Haus
Schon immer, scheints, stand an des Waldes Saume,

umhüllt von Brombeerranken, ein Gemäuer,

als wäre es entstiegen finstrem Traume.

Noch keinem Wandersmann wars dort geheuer,

der hoffnungsvoll drin Schutz und Raststatt suchte,

sich aufzuwärmen an der Stube Feuer.

Warn auch die Wandrer noch so wildverruchte -

schlugs zwölfe erst vom Kirchhof her im Turme,

da regte sich das Haus, das langverfluchte:
wie es weitergeht könnt ihr hier erfahren :-)

unschwer erkennbar, hier kam die Tim Holtz Village Manor Stanze von Sizzix zum Einsatz

Es gibt inzwischen so viel beeindruckende Projekte dieser Häuser im Netz zu sehen
u.a auch eins von unserer Claudia, das man fast eingeschüchtert ist.
Was soll man da noch neu erfinden???
 die Antwort stand in der ersten Strophe von Claudia's Verszeilen
...ein Gemäuer,
als wäre es entstiegen finstrem Traume....

 und frei von mir weiter interpretiert
...eingefangen von des Waldes starken Wurzeln


 zusammen mit einer lufttrocknenden Modelliermasse und einer Silikonform habe ich ein paar Baumwurzeln modelliert, die dann mit schwarzem Gesso angemalt und nach dem Trocknen
nochmal mit grüner und weißer Antiquing cream (DecoArt) eingepudert 

das Mauerwerk ist ein Hintergrundpapier das zusätzlich noch an einigen Stellen mit einem Anstrich aus Strukturpaste und verdünnten Media Fluids bearbeitet wurde

der Clou an dieser Hütte waren für mich die Dachlatten, sie sind absolut perfekt
für ein Gespensterhaus, das langverfluchte oder?!

Vielen Dank für's reinschauen!
Fragen??? jederzeit gern!

Happy crafting!

ATB Halloween - Magical


The Halloween adventure creative journey continues :-)
 It's an artist trading block with a magic glass ball.
Once in a while one is tempted to look into the crystal ball with the notion that there
might be continued positive signs, or?!
If I take a look I see a lot of new crazy ideas in it
:-) MAGICAL :-)

 How I do this

some close up's

I was very inspired from this theme 

The journey will be continues!
See you later my friends
Hugs, Kerstin

Mixed Up No 9 - Halloween Time


Today I want to share a sneak peek from my latest mixed media project
 for a very cool magazine

Autumn is a wonderful season, because you can see veiled sunrises, the air and sounds are clearer, and everything is a bit more quiet.
It gets darker and more mysterious with shadows lurking around and the fog appearing like fantasy creatures of all kinds.
These thoughts were my inspiration for this mixed media canvas.
When I start a project like this I have never a clear picture in my head,
I like to go with my intuition. 

and I have some sneak peeks for you :-)
whole project can you see here
and a big tutorial  :-)

Happy crafting!

GD Calico Craft Parts - Once upon a time


I'm back with a new mixed media fantasy project.
 It's an artist trading block and my inspiration was a very romantic fairytale.
 Can you guess what story I mean???
A little bit difficult, or? 

...Lost in the forest, Belle's father Maurice seeks refuge in the Beast's castle, but the Beast imprisons him for stealing a rose. Belle ventures out in search for him and finds him locked in the castle dungeon. The Beast agrees to let her take Maurice's place.... 

How I did it:

before and after

Colour technique  

  1. firstly a thin layer of water diluted grey and black acrylic paint
  2. Crackle Glace clear DecoArt on some places
  3.   DecoArt White and Raw Umber Antiquing Cream diluted with water and created drip lines with a brush
  4. sprayed with water to make them run and spread
 some close up's 

side views

See you later with another guest design project for
Calico Craft Parts :-)
I really had a lot of fun to work with the amazing Calico parts and I am sure 
(in preparation for the time for creating Christmas gifts) it will certainly not be my last order.

Thanks so much !!
Happy crafting!

Scrap FX - Autumn Day

I'm back with a fall inspired layout.

 Nothing is more beautiful and peaceful
than strolling through the vibrantly colored forest in the silence of nature. It was a golden autumn day, mild temperatures and sunshine, we picked mushrooms and berries,
