Merry Christmas my dear blog friends and welcome to my second dt member post on the second Christmas day, or the second day of the 13th holy days. I created for you two layouts with the beautiful products from Scrap FX Australia. Here is the link:  scrapfx. After a four weeks holiday break it was a little bit difficult to get back into a creative flow, but....... I succeeded. I started on a 30 cm by 30 cm white cardstock which I covered with two layers clear gesso. Then I drew the rectangles with help from the ScrapFX stencil. After my pencil-lines were made, I colored the rectangles with my favorite ink sprays. sometime I added two layers of ink spray, for a little bit darker result. Now my always favorite part stamping with waterproof black ink and the stamps from Scrap FX and other companies. After that I made scribble lines to the rectangles and black gesso spots with my spatula. For my decoration I added washi tape.Then I added on the black gesso a

Silent night..... silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright. Round you virgin mother and child. Holly infant so tender and mild. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace. This is one of the most beautiful Christmas songs. The song was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St. Nicholas parish church in Oberdorf, a village in Austria. A young priest, Father Joseph Mohr, had written the lyrics of the song  ( in German: Stille Nacht) in 1816 in Mariapfarr, the hometown of his father, where Joseph had worked as a coadjutor. The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber, a schoolmaster and organist. . Hello my dear blog readers, todays layout and dt member work  once again on yupo paper. My color choice is: Paris, Candy and Amber, Colour Shimmer Dust from Colour Blast. 7 Dots Studio sticker, Versafine black Ink, Posca pen and the beautiful products from Scrap FX Australia.

December Art Playground DT-member inspiration.

Hello my dear blog readers, it`s time to present you my last DT-member inspiration for the blog "Art Playground" I step back as DT member, this  was such a honor to create in an amazing team.  Sharon I wish you all the best for your stunning challenge site. The Art Playground challenge is based on a color mood board and a word- theme. This month is the word- theme "click,click" Actually I am not a photographer with a fancy expensive equipment. I have my mobile phone which includes an amazing camera and that is absolutely enough for me.  Most of my layout photos are taken from magazines, free down load sites, old family photos, Tim Holtz photo images, or beautiful photos from friends, neighbors or crafty-friends. The only thing  I do then is to copy the photos in the copy-shop, to use some photos more often. I created my layout on yupo paper, with Lindys Spray, black Archival Ink and stamps. The big yellow splatters are done with Alco

My dear blog readers, the Christmas time is the most beautiful time of the year. With so many heartfelt traditions, dreaming of the first snow, drinking hot chocolate, sitting next to the warm fire place and enjoying all the Christmas spirit around us. This time is so beautiful indeed. No matter the hectic with wrapping the Christmas gifts, planning the Christmas dinner. One thing is for sure, one thing never changes. The love of family surrounds us and attaches itself to every beautiful moment. Cherish these memories. Memories, which you can share with us, on our December Scrap The Boys challenge. Here is the link to STB:  scraptheboys.blogspot. With the theme. "Naughty and nice" I created a layout on Yupo paper (which is in the moment my favorite layout paper) Take care with creating on Yupo paper. It takes time to create a layout on Yupo paper, because the paper is actually plastic and it would melt under the heat from the heat tool. so th

Hello my dear blog readers, I am back from my morning hike with Mister Ben. what a beautiful season. the days are dyed in a soft gray tone,  the rain is glittering like diamonds on the night sky. Impression from my hike. Anyway... Here are  my DT projects for Scrap FX Australia. Here is the link:  .scrapfx. Our November  theme is: vintage and heritage.. I created a vintage page for my new stitching-fabric-paper art journal book. The idea came from the artist Lorrie Marie Jenkins. Here is the link to her blog site: Lorrie Marie Blog  I am a collector of old and beautiful quilt fabric, also laces and old tablecloths, old books and post stamps. I think that is a good basic to start my new adventure. I created a page with photos from my mother for the front cover. But I will add my cover after finishing my insert pages. That photo in the middle is from 1941 and the little photo is from 1951. I started with adding fabric on a ca

Hello my dear blog readers, and welcome to the new challenge on the blog from Art Playground. Here is the link:  artplaygroundblog Our November mood board with the colors pink, bordeaux and green and the gorgeous theme "finishing touch" or " never ending story" inspired me to create a layout in mixed media style. But first my description over finishing touch. Did you know... that at the  official exhibitions in the nineteenth century the artists would give a finishing touch to their  art works by varnishing them in the company from invited guest, buyers and sponsors. This was always a day before the official vernissage opens. But also in the current time you can see that the finishing touch is applied... I,  for example, have my own way to give my artwork  my so-called final touch. And that is: I put my artwork on an easel. Then I step back and sit on my favorite armchair, with a view at the easel. In this way I try to find out where I

Hello everyone, " Traveling-  it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller." (Ibn Battuta) the new challenge on the blog from MTW is all about: Future and Stars. Here is the link:  morethanwordschallenge I decided to create a layout with a quote from Hans Christian Anderson "travel is to live". That quote described exactly our FUTURE that my husband J├Ârgen and I have always wishes as we where a young married couple!! Two years ago our wish come true and we started our future wish. Rome, Italy, Spain, France, Engeland, South Africa and Australia. I hope we can see so much more from our beautiful world... For the creative challenge: I painted STARS on the background I used for this layout: Dollar store paper,  13@rts clear gesso, Wow black embossingpowder, Lindys spray, Prima Finnabair modeling paste, glitter, and glas beads Liquitex Basics acrylic color, 7 Dots studio sticker, Posca black pen, like every month w
