Scrap FX DT member post

Merry Christmas my dear blog friends and welcome to my second dt member post on the second Christmas day, or the second day of the 13th holy days. I created for you two layouts with the beautiful products from Scrap FX Australia. Here is the link:  scrapfx. After a four weeks holiday break it was a little bit difficult to get back into a creative flow, but....... I succeeded. I started on a 30 cm by 30 cm white cardstock which I covered with two layers clear gesso. Then I drew the rectangles with help from the ScrapFX stencil.

A young priest, Father Joseph Mohr, had written the lyrics of the song  ( in German: Stille Nacht) in 1816 in Mariapfarr, the hometown of his father, where Joseph had worked as a coadjutor.

December Art Playground DT-member inspiration.

Hello my dear blog readers, it`s time to present you my last DT-member inspiration for the blog "Art Playground" I step back as DT member, this  was such a honor to create in an amazing team.  Sharon I wish you all the best for your stunning challenge site.

I have my mobile phone which includes an amazing camera and that is absolutely enough for me.  Most of my layout photos are taken from magazines, free down load sites, old family photos, Tim Holtz photo images, or beautiful photos from friends, neighbors or crafty-friends. The only thing  I do then is to copy the photos in the copy-shop, to use some photos more often. I created my layout on yupo paper, with Lindys Spray, black Archival Ink and stamps. The big yellow splatters are done with Alco

This time is so beautiful indeed. No matter the hectic with wrapping the Christmas gifts, planning the Christmas dinner. One thing is for sure, one thing never changes.
