Scrap FX dt-member inspiration

Hello and welcome, I am back from my vacations in France and before the September will end I have for you my Scrap FX  dt-member post. Here is the link to the blog:  .scrapfx. Months ago I started with creating a photo book for my son Joshua, using  the wonderful products from ScrapFX Australia. Sometimes it makes me sad to see how time has passed so fast. Today he is 22 years old and studies in Australia at the Bond University near Brisbane/ Gold Coast. I am so happy for him... and the experience there will make him grow. I can only give advice to every parent....give wings to your child and let them  fly where the wind blows them. I know it hurts to say goodbye... but what you get back as gratitude is worth all pain.. I used from Scrap FX: Waifs transparency Fancy Feather stamps Round & Round stamp Art Nouveau Crescent chipboard Number Set 1 chipboard Girlfriends chipboard (only that word friends) I also used: Black gesso, red,

Art Playground September challenge

Hello my dear blog readers, oh blessed mistake !!... is the new challenge theme on the blog from Art Playground. Here is the link to the blog from APG:  artplaygroundblog. We also have a beautiful mood board to create with.... But first my interpretation of the theme "oh blessed mistake" Unfortunately mistakes in our art have a bad reputation. We want to be perfect, we want to be flawless, flawless in our art. Mistakes are badly accepted by us. Mistakes make us uncertain. I think that`s wrong. More precisely: the mistakes make our art to our art. I think mistakes can show that they are beautiful, gorgeous and artistical. But how can we see mistakes as art? Quite simply, we have to accept our mistakes. So we also accept the obvious mistakes in the art of the old Masters. For example: Paul Cezanne "the boy in the red vest" 1889 When you looking closely, you can see that the front arm is too long. or.. Johann Heinrich W. Tischbein
