Shadow box - Artist grunge studio


Welcome creative friends!


 As I saw our latest MDF Mini Furniture Kits I was inspired to create

a shadow box in vintage grunge style.

Love this grandfather clock, really awesome and very sweet,

could also imagine in a bigger size for a lot ideas. 

New Kit's are very easy to assemble, with a little glue they are very sturdy.

I have primed them only with a little brown acrylic paint and then highlighted 

with metal wax.  


And another great novelty at Calico Craft Parts

you can find here
 new Add On sheets, 

bricks, stones and roof tiles in three different sizes. 

They can be used for a lot of projects,

awesome 3d effects, as you can see

in this project too.

Forest Dreams with Dusty Attic


Welcome creative friends!


 I created a mixed media canvas in fantasy style and chose a magical forest theme.

Love the selection

 Foliage, Flowers & Branches

at Dusty Attic, all the chippies are very natural and inspiring for me. 

They are a good addition if you want tell stories from your last hiking tour or

the last discovery tour with your kids, but always very suitable

for magical fairytales too.



I worked with papers and transpareny foil from 13arts,

some cutting dies, flowers and floristic materials.

Snail Mail with 13arts


Welcome creative friends!


I was in love from the beginning 

in this realistic looking 3d frame from 

the collection 'Industrial Zone' from 13arts.

It looks so lifelike and the grunge style in rust is really awesome!


I used the backside from a canvas as base, 

cut out the centre piece and glue it

on the frame.

Rustic pipelines are also a cutout from this great paper collection,

 Simply put together and lightly overlapped, they look like a real thing,

doesn't it?


 combined with some chipboards from Dusty Attic, cutting dies,

flowers and dried floristic materials a perfectly combination for me and my theme

Snail Mail - Botanical Steampunk Garden

I hope I could awaken your imagination and inspiration.


Happy creating!
