Our Mr. Handsome with 13@rts

 Welcome creative friends!

 Have you seen yet the awesome new collection MR. Handsome from 13arts?! 

A completely mix of papers in different sizes, stencils, stamps, ephemera, chipboards and a transparency foil. I'm totally in love with the denim papers, they are so suitable for a lot of projects in steampunk or grunge style, for boys and men, in vintage or modern style.

Very cool!!!



 I also try out the Rusty Bronze powder with the suitable Rust Reagenz, I must say very exiting!!

The rust effect is already apparent after a relatively short time.

All things are possible with coffee and a dog!! 😀

Happy creative weekend!

Beginning of Spring




Today is in the northern hemisphere, the official beginning of spring.

That inspired me to create a bird house in mixed media style.

 I used delightful chalky colours for a naturally look.

Country Life in Rustic style for Dusty Attic Moodboard March


 Welcome creative friends!


Now it's my turn to feature a mixed media canvas using the 

beautiful Dusty Attic Moodboard for March.

Love all the warm colours of a stunning sunset. 




All the shades of brown and yellow inspired me to create

a country life canvas with a lot of structures in rustic style.

I built a small chicken coop and put a roof on it, 

which was made from some leftover pieces of chipboard



some birch bark was glued to the roof


behind the cock I used the magnificent

 Wagon Wheels,

 a cog and a feather

 they were decorated with some texture paste, black gesso and 

after drying with silver wax  


 was created with white embossing powder


 Triangle Panel Small

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

 Welcome Dusty friends!


It's finally March and spring is in sight. This winter felt extra long, and thanks to the pandemic and extreme weather conditions, the longing for spring with more sun and warmth is now especially great. 

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout. The girl enjoys the sun, a soul full of sunshine, 

that is exactly what everyone here needs most urgently right now. 

I used some Maja Design background papers, cutting dies, a sunray stencil and 

suitable amazing Dusty Attic chipboards.

With Heart and Soul - Homedeco Altered Art


Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a heart in Altered Art 😀 it's a gift for a friend who loves chickens above all.

In times of pandemic, it has become the new trend here to keep chickens almost everywhere. 

Whether the chickens will always like it remains to be seen.

I used a wooden heart as base, together with a beautiful background paper 

from 13arts 'Rosalie' and the absolutely amazing pigment powder,

 also called Rainbow color 'Brown' a perfect combination for me.

you know I love 3d effects, here I created a roof from some chipboard rests

birch bark was glued on top


I used from 13@rts:


Rainbow Color Brown

Paper pad 6x6" "ROSALIE"



 Gesso white-500-ml

Happy crafting!

Easter basket

 Welcome creative friends!


I was inspired to create a rustic easter basket as home decoration for the springtime.

I used the MDF Trug Kit - Style 1

only as basket without the handholds. Single shapes were painted with simple acrylic colours.

Welcome 13arts!


Hello creative friends!

A new creative journey begins! I was picked to be part of an amazing Mixed Media Team. 

Now I'm a very proud and lucky designer of the 13arts creative family. 

OVER THE MOON 🤩 can't wait to start crafting with this awesome products. 


While I'm waiting for the new collections, and in order not get out of practice until then 😏

 I've designed a tag in mixed media style to get in the creative mood.  

I used some paper and motifs from the Rosalie collection,

I especially love the background papers, be it the peeling paint or the weathered wood style.

Have you seen yet Mr. Handsome, one of the latest collections from 13arts??? 

AWESOME!!! I love the mix of Denim, gears, lightbulbs and some other steampunk elements, 

some ideas grow in my head. Masculine, grungy, vintage or modern, realistic or futuristic stories

 for Home decor projects or as gift idea for a special friend. 


I am very excited to see what this coming time has in store for us!
