what a beautiful season.
the days are dyed in a soft gray tone,
the rain is glittering like diamonds on the night sky.
Here are my DT projects for Scrap FX Australia.

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:

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 cardboard .
my cardboard is 13 cm by 20 cm.
After drying from my glue, I added white Gesso with a dry brush.
I also stamp with white Hero Arts Ink and a scrip stamp.
For the vintage look I added randomly Vintage Distress Ink.
My next step was embossing.
Only the edges with Seth Apter new baked texture in Patina Oxide,
and for the finishing touch vintage wax from Finnabair.
That`s why I here created a kind of wire hanging.....But!!
That was the same time when I met Lorrie on her YouTube channel.
So I changed my first thought: this piece of art will be my cover for my new book.
My next step is creating a layer from paper, fabric, washi tape, post stamps and lace.
With randomly stitching.
I glue this beautiful layering down on my fabric cardboard.
Then I cut a photo copy from my mothers photos
and glue it also on my fabric -paper layering.
Tim Holtz sticker for my embellishment.
For an altered look I added Seth Apter bees wax baked texture embossing powder on my photo.
Unfortunately I accidentally deleted the next photo, but here I describe what I have done.
I painted the title of a chipboard from Scrap FX called Photos of the Past with Distress paint in the color fired brick. My frame from Scrap FX is embossed with Sept Apter baked texture patina oxide.
Last but not least I also embossed the little photo from my mother with bees wax from Seth Apter.
I used from Scrap FX.
Antique Oval frame
Photos of the Past
This painting is an old one, done in 2014 on a vacation in France.
I love to paint in the old Masters style. That means dark background.
On the bottom from the painting I glue washi Tape and a piece from the Scrap Fx transparency sheet.
The beautiful chipboard from Scrap Fx and another piece from the Scrap Fx transparency
in combination with orange bordeaux and dark brown color looks so cool!!
My title from Scrap Fx with gray color and vintage wax, also another pieces from the transparency sheet.
My altered tee bag is such a lovely embellishment on my site.
Here I added with a stencil from Scrap Fx an interesting element on my background.
For the perfect balance on my page I decided to color my chipboards from Scrap Fx
always in the same color, gray acrylic from Amsterdam with a touch of vintage wax from Finnabair.
Now I think that is a very beautiful begin on my new adventure..
