Playful dogs for Scrap FX

Hi crafty friends!

I'm back with a new beach layout in mixed media style with the latest products from Scrap FX. It's a beautiful memory on our last summer holiday by the sea.
Our dog has always so much fun on the sea. His favourite occupation is to get discs out of the water.

I have created a very summery and joyful layout with a lot of splatters and stains
and I discovered my passion for watercoloring again, delicate colors with extending effects.
used Scrap FX products 

more details can you find 

I cut the frame and used the dogs individually

I hope you like this inspiration
and all the other wonderful projects of our teamies!
Have a nice day my friends!

Welcome for DT Calico Craft Parts

Hi crafty friends!

The time is right for a new inspirations with some absolutly awesome new wooden shapes from Calico Craft Parts. Today in the focus, the genius anchor.

 In memory of a wonderful summer vacation last year, where we had rented a holiday apartment by the sea, this Shadow box was created. I also liked the flat so much because it had an individual touch and welcomed the holiday makers with home-made things. 
I used a shadow box similiar to this one Birch Plywood Box Frame Kit Size: S , old book pages, stamps (stars and saying). The frame was made with white crackle paint from DecoArt and afterwards coated with Antiquing Cream Patina Green and Carbon Black.
I wanted a background in grunge style, therefore I also used Distress Ink 'Walnut Stain'.

Happy crafting!
