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, green and yellow acrylic, Infusion powder, white posca pen, Tim Holtz stickers,
Archival black ink.

Time ago I was on a scrapbook fair in Germany, where I made contact with many new lovely people.
It always happend that I was asked for a business-card.
That is the reason that I have made these little cards.
Business cards…. 5,5 cm x 8,5 cm
I used from Scrap FX:
  • Mini Roses stencil
  • Julia mini stencil
  • Pauline mini stencil
  • Lace loop stamp
  • dream transparency

I also used:
Infusion powder, black cardstock, black gesso and white posca pen

Enjoy your weekend and thank you so much for visiting today my blog.

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....

Image may contain: flower

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
Image result for cezanne jung mit roter weste
When you looking closely, you can see that the front arm is too long.


Johann Heinrich W. Tischbein "Goethe in the Campagna" 1787

Image result for goethe in the campagna

When you looking closely, you can see that the back leg is to long,

and he is wearing two right footed shoes.

You can find many of this mistakes in the art of the old Masters....

Go the next time with a searching look for mistakes in an art exhibitions,

 you will wonder how much you can find!! But remember, it`is not a is ART !!

Why do we accept these mistakes?  Because there are mistakes of the old Masters,

or because it is art!!...

That`s exactly what you should learn. See your mistakes as art as artistic art!!


I used for this page:

13 arts clear gesso,
Archival Ink cactus flower and deep purple,
Finnabair black gesso,
7 dots studio stickers,
Tim Holtz stamps,
Jane Davenport washi tape,
Unity stamp company stamps,
Scrap FX Australia stencil,
Glimmer Mist fully purple Tattered Angels.
12 inch x 12 inch white cardstock paper.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

I am always thankful for your visit.

Have a beautiful day.
