Today is a hot chocolate kind of day and live-love-surf Scrap FX Australia DT work with video tutorials.

Hello everyone, this is my second post in February for Scrap FX Australia. I made a mixed media layout and of course my site for Joshua `s photo book. I also made two video tutorials for you. As I have already explained in one of my last post,  This year I will try to reduce my paper stock. I found on pintrest a photo with two cup of hot chocolate, yummy, yummy and this awesome design paper from the dollar store here in The Netherlands give a great combination together. At the moment we have a lot of nights with minus degrees. Even during the day it is so could that you need gloves. So I think the hot chocolate fits not only the design paper but also our weather here in The Netherlands. But anyway ..... Here is what I used for my layout from Scrap FX Australia: Harlequin Stamp Little Men Don't Bug Me Here is the link to Scrap FX Australia:  .scrapfx. Today is a hot chocolate kind of day...

Abstract Scrapbook Layout for Scrap FX Australia with Video tutorial

Hello everyone, welcome to my new Design Team inspiration for the Company: Scrap FX Australia. Here is the link to the blog from Scrap FX:  Blog Scrap FX Australia is a chipboard company with high quality chipboards, stamps, stencil and silhouette. I made for the February month an abstract scrapbook layout on Kraft paper in black and white. What do I call abstract scrapbooking (ASB)? Well, first of all there are NO 3D flowers on the layout but chipboards, iron wire, sewing thread and as well cut photos. For me the background work is the most important aspect of ASB I see my abstract scrapbook page as a further processing of the photo. In the best scene of the words: so the photographer and the scrapbooker stand side by side, to create a work of ART together. I create my ASB on monochrome paper, so that the background becomes more effective. Just as when you will start painting on white canvas. I applied the colors with the paletknife. Also you can use

Stick it down layout with video tutorial

Hello everyone, today I would like to introduce you to a special collaboration between the two challenge blogs Scrap The Boys and Stick it Down. Stick it Down prepared the sketch with which we were allowed to play creatively.  As always, I made a mixed media layout which I will show here today. On the photo you can see our youngest children actually now young adults. The photo was taken years ago in Tunisia. Here in The Netherlands we have in May always the so-called Royal Holidays which are about a week. We have always used this time to fly where the sun is, to escape the rainy Netherlands. Well, you cannot have everything... I am grateful that we had the opportunity to visit this country. But anyway here is the link to Stick it Down:  SID and here is the link to Scrap The Boys:  STB This is the sketch for the challenge by SID. I made a video for this challenge page, as always I worked with different materials. This

More Than Words DT member layout February 2018

Hello everyone, today is my turn to inspire you for the new challenge of More Than Words. Here is the link for the challenge:  MTW Our challenge this month is the word "Forever" and our creative challenge is "Heart". Please read our challenge rules well, so you have a chance to win one of the great prizes from our February sponsors. I stamped with heart shaped stamps and Archival jet black Ink and added modeling paste on a heart shape stencil.  Also I cut out paper hearts and used them as embellishments behind my photo. The word "Forever" inspired me to add a photo with a couple that follows the heart. 32 years together with my love of my life is something to be proud of, and this time fills up like forever. At the time when I married, it was clear to me that this marriage should be forever with children, laughing, love and health that is all what I wanted and asked for. But anyway here is my layout. Follow your heart...
