Summer Memories


Today a new inspiration for Maja Design. Two pages for a new minialbum with my favourite theme Summer by the Sea. We have a very hot and especially dry summer here and every thought of a cool fresh sea breeze is more than welcome.

'You can shake the sand from your shoes,

 but it will never leave your soul'

I used a beautiful neutral sheet 'Wind in my hair' as underground paper. The tags from this collection
 were a wonderful addition and very practical to attach my flip flop images.

 I have added some cut out elements from the 'Life by the sea' paper collection

 and some wooden shape mini elements from Calico Craft Parts

I will See(A) you :-)

Welcome crafty friends!

Today I want to share with you an idea for a home decoration piece, 
it's also very practical and useful.
Summertime means also holiday time, friends and neighbors are on the road and leave you the keys for garden maintenance or  mailbox. My
keychain is big and so I  had to look forever for the foreign keys.
I've built a simple key stand, now I can find the keys faster.

# Curious for Scrap FX

Hello friends!

I was inspired to create a new Junk Journal.
That's the first pages in steampunk style with one of my favourite theme 'Under the SEA'.

I was in love with this amazing seahorse, so many details and very filigree, a beautiful black contrast, that looks like a silhouette. I added some mini cogs too, painted with some acrylic rust colours from DecoArt.

  • a mixed media page, where I used the stencil Continuous chain with texture paste a grunge element on the left side 
  •  Coral stamp one of my favourite background stamps, is always very suitable for nautical projects
  • chipboard 'Suspendid Time' was cut into several parts, I used a gorgeous embossing powder 'Hammered Metal'

Thanks for your visit!

Have a good time!

Time together

Hello friends,

It's time for a new inspiration summer layout.
 I love to use structure paper and try out new ideas.
I had some leftovers from a white wallpaper and thought, a beautiful texture,
can wallpaper be inked in?, which color is suitable? 

I used a piece of wallpaper in the centre of my maritim layout,
a perfect addition for me to the beautiful papers from Maja Design.

more details can you find

 I tried with Glimmer Mist from Tatterd Angels and I must say, it's a wonderful amazing effect, because it doesn't spread evenly and the end result will be very natural.

I used also some cutting dies from Joy craft (waves, kelp) and added some
handmade embellishmets made with molds and modelling clay.

I wish you a wonderful summertime!

Key of Happiness - Der Schlüssel zum Glück

Hallo allerseits!

Es ist wieder Zeit für eine neue Inspiration für unseren Steampunk Challenge Blog.
Wir freuen uns jeden Monat auf's Neue eure Ideen im Steampunk bzw. Industrial Grunge Style zu bestaunen!

Da ich auch gern im Scrapbookbereich werkle, ist es heute zur Abwechslung ein Mixed Media Layout im Grunge Stil. Ein Stil der etwas chaotisch ist und meist mit dunklen abgenutzten Elementen aus dem Handwerkerbereich ergänzt wird, das Recycle Thema wird hier ganz groß geschrieben -Schrauben, Federn, Kugellager, Einzelteile von alten Uhren, Werkzeugen ... und, und der Fantasie sind keine Grenzen gesetzt!
Das Spannende daran ist, man ist völlig frei in seiner Gestaltung. Man sagt aber auch gern das ist der  - Mir ist alles egal - Look, hmm ganz so sehe ich das nicht, wenigstens mir muss es gefallen, oder?!

Lasst euch inspirieren und versucht euch selbst!
Ich wünsche euch ganz viel Spaß dabei!
