Art Journal Journey challenge inspiration..

Hello my dear blog readers,  I enjoy working in my art journal. About 10 years ago I held my very first art journal in my hands. Since then, a few books have been flilled with the years. One book is for my watercolor journaling, one book for my vintage photos with urban painting, one book in a whimsical style, one book for stamp and stencil work and now my new book for collage combined with stamps and black /white photos. My inspiration came from the august challenge by art journal journey, with the theme : count your blessings...

scrapfx dt work...

Hello my dear blog reader, it`s a time ago that I was online. This is a bit due to the weather here in The Netherlands. Unfortunately I am one of the people who have a hard time when it gets too warm outside. (as an absolute autumn and winter months lover, I cannot wait for my favorite months of the year.) So I have also given fewer comments on my other social media accounts.  I did not even have the strength and energy  to do this simple task.  I apologize for that. But anyway... Here is my ScrapFX design team work from the month July. I love to work with the fantastic products from them... There are high quality products to work with and the shipping is world wide. At the moment my favorite products are the silhouettes and transparency folder. But the other products as stamp, stencil and of course the chipboards are amazing too!! Here is the link.  .scrapfx. Joergen and Heike layout. Here is the link to my scrapFx blog post:  www.s
