Scrap Fx Australia DT member post

Good morning everyone, and welcome to my second blog post for the company Scrap Fx Australia. I created for you as inspiration two art journal pages and one A4 scrapbook layout. But first I will show you one of my favorite quote from E. Hemingway about Autumn. "You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees    and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew it    would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen." This quote was my inspiration for my first art journal page. I love being inspired by a quote or music. It's not just painting in a book for me, it has a deeper meaning. An old dictionary serves as art journal book for me. I am currently working in four different books at the same time. If I have applied a color layer, I put it aside and start with the next book. So I do not need to wait until the layers dried.

Challenge post for Colour Blast with products from Scrap FX

Hello lovely blog readers, how are you? It's been a long time since I wrote just for fun. Most often I write dt member inspiration blog posts. But today I had the time to post something just for fun.  From our Australian holiday I brought shimmer dust from the company Colour Blast. And with these I have made a layout with a photo of my daughter Mia. I had read on the Colour Blast Facebook page about the November challenge. I created this page on Glosy Cardstock from Ranger. That is a special stamp paper with a smooth surface in the size 30 cm x 30 cm. Shimmer dust comes in  powder . To activate the colour in the powder, mix the powder with water. After mixing it with water the powder  is water soluble. I don't like that! I use instead of water acrylic medium. Because of this medium, the powder becomes waterproof. For adding the powder liquid on my page I used stamps. Short note: Please clean the stamp immediately after using. My chipboard is from

Hello everyone,   Nice, that you are here to visit  my blog post for the company Scrapfx Australia.    Here in Europe, autumn has arrived and delights us with everything it has to offer. Rain, falling leaves, wind, cold and frosty days. For me it is the most beautiful time of the year. It is the last deep inhalation of nature before it falls into winter sleep.   Maybe it's also because I love sitting near the burning fire, lighting the candles, in my hand a hot cup of chocolate with marshmallows. Yummy.  Inspired by the colors of nature I have created a layout with little white on the background. I found it doesn't quite match the bold colors of autumn. My thought was that I use darker colors on the bottom of the layout going upwards light colours, in the middle bright and bold colours so as turquoise and yellow as a symbol of the last sun rays of the year.   First, I stamped a stamp background. I used StazOn Ink for this. StazOn Ink is waterproof and does not need
