Hello everyone,

do you enjoy the beautiful weather here in Europe?

28 degrees, fantastic for the end of August.

I had already told you that I have so many new ideas that

I do not know what I should do first.

So I made another layout with my favorite products

of ScrapFx Australia.

I created my layout on dollar store design paper and white cardstock.

My photo is from free photo images from Google.

Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the photographer because

I downloaded the photo more than a year ago. That was the time before

 I started to write the name of the photographer on the backsite.

Sorry for that!!

We belong together...

I used from

John & Harry stencil SMALL
Polygonic stencil
Art Deco Panel stamp
Leafy Circle Stamp
Mandala stamp
Chevron Panel chipboard
Circuit Frame chipboard
Molecules chipboard
We belong Together chipboard title
Dream transparency
Butterflies transparency
Antiquities transparency

I also used:
black gesso, posca pen, old Holland acrylic Color,
WOW embossing powder, Ultra thick embossing powder,
Archival ink, Versafine ink, Finnabair wax, cambric, glitter.

My dear blogreaders, thank you so much for visiting my blogpost today.

Have a beautiful day.

Hello everyone,

in January of this year we started with our new life philosophy according to Marie Kondo.

We have minimized our household but were still living large.

We have adjusted that too.

My husband and I are living now in a one room apartment with a large garden.

Oh this is so beautiful and refreshing.

But anyway, today was my first day after weeks that I created without

 construction noise in the background.

I created a layout with vintage photos from Tim Holtz.

Celebrating in style...

The gorgeous Mandala transparency.

Here you can see very well how clearly a stamp image can be with watercolor.

 I love the cake stamp on the background.

I used from Scrap FX:

Celebrating in Style

Scrawl Hearts

Adorned Branch

Blossom Stem Stamp

Cake stamps

Circle collage stamps

Mandala transparency

Butterflies transparency

Tractor & Truck Charts

Diamonds stencil

My dear blog reader, that was it for today.

I hope that I could inspire you to work with the fabulous products

Hello my dear blog readers,

how are you?

here in Europe the summer with 36 degree Celsius has definitively started.

My garden is full in live, butterflies, birds and all my flowers have grown beautifully.

But anyway..

I created for you a scrapbook page with a photo from my daughter Mia.

The photo is taken with the mobile phone.

 I love the dreamy look from the pic.

One day I`ll fly away is a song from Randy Crawford

 and at the moment one of my favorite songs on my playlist.

I think the title matches perfectly with growing up kids. As my daughter on this pic

years ago. She was also out to learn to fly.

One day I`ll fly away...

 I love the new diamonds stencil…absolutely perfect for a stencil background.

Love this butterfly and bookprint transparency

The combination diamonds stencil and art deco panel stamp….. so stunning.

For the chipboards I used: white gesso, yellow acrylic and then yellow embossingpowder.

I created also an art journal page in my altered book.

At the moment I like to create with photo transfers. The photo is a building here in my hometown.

Nijmegen is the oldest city in our country The Netherlands. So many old buildings to take pictures

of. Perfect for my new love!!

I used from Scrap Fx:

Scrap Fx DT post

Hello, hello, hello...

I am back from my vacation in France,

what a fantastic and beautiful country.

But anyway,

I did for my dt member work another mixed media mini book

with lots of stamps and stencil work. For my embellishments

I used chipboards and transparency.

Let´s start.

Happy Birthday.....

My color choice for this book was: Old Holland acrylics in red, blue, black, white and gold.
The ribbon is a piece from my grandmothers tablecloth.
 Unfortunately, the tablecloth has so much dirty spots which I cannot get cleaned. But that beautiful fabric in the memory of my grandmother was reason enough to keep it for my art work!!
 I cut it in strips for my mixed media work and voila I have a piece of memory art work!

I started with a black paper sheet 30 cm x 40 cm.
Then I scored  horizontally on 15 cm
and I scored  vertically on 10 cm, 20 cm and 30cm.
After that I cut out a piece of paper on the top, exactly from the 10 cm score line to the 30 cm score line.
My next step was collage-work with old vintage paper.

Okay, after my collage-work was done and  completely dried, I started with a layer of clear Gesso.
After that I added a layer of white paint with the palette knife.
Now my favorite part: stencil and stamp work...YAH!!

My next step was another palette knife work with black, blue and red color.
Finally it is time for embellishing with transparency, photos and chipboards.
Mark making with Posca pen and pencils.

On the left site the mandala transparency over the number crunch stamp.

My circle party chipboard as window for the girl photo images and the Happy Birthday vellum.

On the left site I have a red color phototransfer. Can you see it?

I am so in love with the flower bud stencil..

After two days of my background work I thought about it: I miss something else.
So I have attached a piece of vellum-paper 10 cm x 30 cm on the left and right site.
I glued  photos on the vellum-paper also I did a little bit stitching work and words as embellishments.
The photos are from Tim Holtz and Finnabair.

Here you can see, which part was cut out from the black background paper.

I used from ScrapFx:
Mandala stamp
Chicken Wire Stamp
Number Crunch stamps
Chevron Panel stamp
Square collage stamps
Circle collage stamps
Circles & Squares stamp
Art Deco Panel stamp

Flower Buds stencil

Art Phrases transparency
Art Words transparency
Bookprint transparency
Mandala transparency

Circle - Party
2019 Year Pack

Happy Birthday BLUE

So my dear blog readers,
this was my dt member work for June.
I see you in July.
Until then...

I folded the book in accordion style.
After that I added clear gesso and a collagelayer with old book pages.
Coloring and stamping was my next step.
After that I add the stencil images,sticker, chipboards and transparency.
