Enchanting Times with 13arts

  Hello everyone!


The latest 13arts collection Secret Garden it' s one of my favourites. 

 When you see the enchanting flowers you first think of spring and summer. 

However I'm someone who likes to create with the seasons, 

but when I looked at every single sheet I saw suddenly 

snow flurries and polar lights, really :-)

You just have to let your imagination run wild, right?!



I  discovered a christmas tree ornament in a store, a beautiful white peacock and thought,

 it would fit perfectly with the new collection and become a new eye catcher on the wall.

I created a mixed media canvas where I used the stamp, 

emphemera and the magical paper from Secret Garden, with white mist color, 

Gesso, some glitter flakes and white cutting dies

I created an enchanted ice world. The color shades 

just fit perfectly to such fantasy stories.

I hope I could awaken your imagination and inspiration.


Happy creating!

Rainbow stars - Dusty Attic Moodboard


Welcome everyone!


Rainbow time at Dusty Attic 😃


I must say  in our gloomy clary gray november days a not so easy topic for me,

I remembered beautiful childhood days when we made soap bubbles

 and were happy when we saw a rainbow in the quickly bursting bubbles. 



I created a simple layout, where I used some stencils for the background, 
I added also some acrylic mist paints and a flower in rainbow colors.
The chipboards from Dusty Attic
  complement the whole and make it lively.

Fabric Art collage - Peace on Earth - Winterdream


  Hello everyone!


 I felt like working with fabric scraps again and create a art collage

 in winter christmas mood.


I sewed an adorable winter cottage from fabric scraps 

and  mixed different fabrics with jeans,

 added a door with a MDF shape. The natural colors of the shapes 

contrast very well with denim.

Several structure in background were made with fabric, 

wallpaper and corrugated cardboard


Baubles got some silver glitter and were backed with linen fabric.

used MDF shapes from Calico Craft Parts

Wishing you a happy advent season!

Guest Design Craft O' Clock - Altered Book Christmas


Welcome creative souls!


Today another guest design inspiration, it's a vintage book in Altered Art. 

I love to create books in Altered Art and such a lot of 

beautiful christmas motifs in the - Warm and Peaceful - collection have 

invited me to design it.


I used a 20 x 20 cm background paper from this collection and

 endless motifs to cut out, that made the scissors glow 😁

they were supplemented with suitable cutting dies, a little tree and cones. 

Cut out motifs were arranged in several layers of the gutted old books,

creating an amazing 3d effect.

Thanks for your visit!


Happy advent season!

Creativity is ... with 13arts


 Welcome everyone!


 Have you seen yet the latest 13arts collections???


Amazing, one of them a limited edition is 'City Lights' .

A young modern design, very graphic, main colors are pink and black, 

so totally different from my usual style. 

But I love such challenges, you can rediscover yourself.


I have combined the mixed media layout with the theme 

What is creativity??? 

 I used some papers from this collection as background and layers
and created with some stripes 3 rays - the city lights,
 in addition I use cutout motifs, a stencil and chipboards.
Some denim leftovers from an old jeans provide a cool look.
It could also be an art journal page 
because it has expressive power and tells a story.

GD Craft O' Clock - Home Decor Age of Mysteries


Welcome creative souls!


I was invited to create some guest design projects
 with the amazing paper collections
 There you can find a lot of motifs for cut out 
for all events and creative ideas. 
Thanks so much for your invitation!!


As I saw the Age of Mysteries paper collection I had the inspiration

 to use some wooden letters as base for a gift idea. 

It's a home decor piece as desk or shelf decoration,

you can attach an individual funny photo and

 it's always an interesting eyecatcher.

An individuel gift,  simple and quickly made.

I used a 20 x 20 cm background paper from this collection 

and some cut out motifs, which were  supplemented 

with suitable cutting dies and two metallic elements.
