Frosty Morning DT Dusty Attic

Welcome creative friends!

I found a beautiful old picture frame at the flea market. 
I wanted to create a very natural picture matching the birch bark.

 I decided for a picture with hoarfrost and snow on a frosty morning.

Paw prints on my heart DT Dusty Attic

Welcome creative friends!

 Today a new inspiration for our delightful February Moodboard by Dusty Attic

I was inspired to create a 12 x 12 layout with my favourite theme, Sea, sun and dogs.
The photos are a beautiful memory on a relaxful summer holiday some years ago.

Have you seen this wonderful soft tone colours on our Moodboard this month, 
an amazing picture with natural feeling, which reminds me on blooming meadows,
but also to the dunes and sea.

Suitable to the Valentine month I was inspired to create a vintage layout
 with our latest very romantic paper collection 'Our little street cafe'

I used the paper sheets 'Joyful' ; 'Something sweet' as background paper and 'The best place' both sides as torned stripes. Matching the vintage theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, old book pages and some Prima Marketing flowers to the mixed media layout.

Magical Forest DT Maja Design


I hope our winter, which was actually not a winter at all, is over soon. 

Grey, wet and some days it just doesn't seem to get light at all. 
But sometimes, even after frosty nights, you could discover a landscape 
enchanted by hoarfrost. 

This was my inspiration for my mixed media collage today.

 some close up's

At the last trade fair we made some mushrooms of egg carton with our children.
They made enthusiastically fly mushrooms, that seemed contagious 
and so I was inspired to tried another variant myself.

I used our wonderful winter collection ‘Holiday in the Alps’

'Let it snow' ; 'Deers' and some suitable monochrome papers.

Many thanks for your visit!
Have  a good time!

Art Journal - Hope for SASPC

Welcome creative friends!

 Our February challenge is, as usual...

 We welcome all types of projects (except digitally created) and encourage everyone to join us each month, whether this is your very first make, or you are an experienced maker, and share your creations. Show us your tags, cards, canvas, Artist Trading Cards/Coins, art journal, altered objects - whatever you can imaging that fits our steampunk/industrial theme. We are in awe of your creative imaginations and use of materials, and look forward to each challenge to see where your creative muse took you.

I was inspired to create a very simple Art Journal page with only a little colour, 
some stencils and stamps, but a lot of meaningfulness. 

I love it to work with the great stencils from DecoArt, 
here I used Stencil & Mask 'Children', the clock face from 'Made to Measure' 
 and some words from 'Motivation'.

some close up's

 My  teamies at SASPC have come up with many

inspiring and different versions
on this Steampunk/ Industrial  challenge.

We are looking forward to see your new creations!

  Happy Crafting!
