Scrap Fx blog post #2

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my last design team inspiration for the company ScrapFx Australia.

For health reasons, I have to say goodbye to the wonderful and talented team and company

of ScrapFx Australia. Thank you Jill that I was allowed to be part of your team for many years.

It was a lot of fun, and I enjoed every minute. 

Thanks also to Michelle and her administration around the ScrapFx blog.

And last but not least I will say thank you to all the dt members from ScrapFx.

It was an honor to create with you together.

I created for you an art journal page and a scrapbook layout.

Art Journal page " Womens world"

A short description about my art journal page:
First I glued the collage paper on a piece of white cardstock.
After my glue was dry, I fuzzy cut each element from the collage paper.
Then I added stencil and stamp images with help from Distress Ink to my page.
The next step was black Gesso and black color splatters.
After the black color was dry I glued the  collage elements the vintage photos,
transparency, silhouettes and the word stickers. Done.

My next inspiration is a scrapbook layout with photos of my daughter.

I used from Scrap Fx:

Bohemian Beauties

Here is the link to the Scrap Fx store:

I hope that my shoulder recovers well and that I can hopefully catch up with you all again.
Lucky me, I was able to do all my dt member works on time.
Now I need a recovery phase for my arm and shoulder.
Please stay safe everyone.
Lots of love and hugs to you all my friends.

June More than Words main challenge inspiration

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to the June main challenge on the blog from More than Words.

Here is the link: https://morethanwordschallenge.blogspot.com/

Our challenge is: Paint as creative challenge , and Hero for our word challenge.

This is my inspiration for you.


Heike: For the June challenge I decided to make a layout with my HERO of childhood. Who hadn't dreamed in his childhood of having the powers of a "super-HERO". I dreamed that I am very strong and brave without fear. My super hero was "Batman". I created my page from the "Young and free" paper collection from 13@rts. I used for the creative PAINT challenge also 13@rts products, mostly Color Glow. 

And here is the Mood Board

My paper choice from 13@rts.

13@rts is also sponsor from MTW.

Have fun with the challenge.

Happy creating,

and I see you on the blog from MTW.

Until then 


Single blog post for the company 13@rts in June

 hello everyone,

and welcome to my single blog post for the company 13@rts.

Here is the link:


Finally the the rainy days are behind us and the warm weather pleases us here in The Netherlands.

My garden like a little bit a green jungle and I spend every free minute in my beautiful garden.

I am also happy I became my first Biontech/Pfizer vaccination and my second I get it in July. 

Our lockdown situation is in phase 2 from the reopening. I hope that is a good sign,

and we became a normal live back. 

But anyway, I have voor you a clp-board mixed media project as inspiration.


A closer look to my project.

A short description about my background.

I started with adding black gesso from 13@rts to the front and back site of my clip-board.

After that I added the rust powder products to the metall clip element of the board.

I let the rust powder work over night for a good rust effect.

The next day I glued paper first to my board and than I added multipurpose gel medium

to a stencil and I let the hole thing air dry.

On the next day I painted the  multipurpose gel medium stencil images with black gesso.

After a quick heat dry I started my color glow color layering over the painted stencil images

 and around the clip-board edges.also.

This is always the most exciting part of my creating process and I take the time for this step.

I used from 13@rts.

As always the base mediums so as Clear Gesso, Black Gesso, Multipurpose Gel Medium 

and Gel Medium.

Scrap Fx Australia post June #1

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my first blog post in the month June.

I have for you three art journal pages as inspiration.

Long time I only needed watercolors to bring the so called finsh-touch on my project.

But at the moment I love to create and paint with them. 

I have lots of different watercolor brands so as Schmincke, van Gogh, Winsor Newton, Old Holland

Prima Marketing and 13@rts.

Each  watercolor brand has its advantages and disadvantages.

 I still love everything about my different watercolors.

So let`s start with my inspirations.

Broken Crayons still Color...

First I started adding the new collage paper classifields..
After that I stamped with the new stamp zinnia and the 9dots stamp in light pink watercolor.
And then I scribble with a red gel pen around the 9dots stamp images.
Yellow watercolor was my next step and then stamping with black ink.
The next step was black watercolor and then I added the transparency and 
the collage paper title. Splatters and white gel pen scribbling and my page was done.
All my pages are  create of the same way.

13@rts stamp group post in the month of May

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog.

Todays blog post is all about the stamps from 13@rts.

I love stamps, I have more stamps as shoes :).

I have clear stamps, rubber stamps, soft-foam stamps , wood stamps 

and handmade stamps.

I keep my stamps in an old cabinet from 1930 and

 I have keep my stamps according to companys or topics: such as animals, natur or people.

My favorite mediums for stamping is of course Ink.

Distress Ink, Oxide Ink, Archival ink, Versa mark ink, Versafine and StazOn ink.

But I also try other mediums so as the 13@rts watercolors or Color Glows

and acrylic colors as well.

The stamp image on my mixed media projects do not have to be perfect,

 so for this I use the stamp without a clear block.

 For a good stamp image I used the Tim Holtz stamp plat- form.

13@rts stamps are clear stamps and each new paper collection comes also

with new stamp images.

Of course I have my favorite stamps of 13@rts

 and other companies as well always in a box on my desk.

 And a closer look to my page.
Unfortunately the camera has colored the background light gray
 in the close -up picture, actually my background paper is white. 
So sorry for that.

This is what I used from 13@rts:

Scrap Fx Australia blog post #2 May

 Hello everyone 

and welcome to my second blog post in the month of May.

I created an art journal page and a scrapbook page.

I had so much fun with creating this inspiration for you.

I bought the new paper dolls from Tim Holtz.

I knew immediately that I wanted to combine this men's group in vintage style,

 with the scribble figures of Scrap Fx.

So let's start.

A closer look to my page.

I created my layout on a paper-sheet from 13@rts which I covered with clear gesso first.

Than I started with adding color. Therefore I used the acrylic colors from Decoart.

After adding my color I started with stamping.

First with Archival Ink in green and after that with black.

My next step was adding black gesso and asemic writing with a white pen.

After that I added the transparency men`s washi tape black spatters

 and the kraft paper words from ScrapFx.

My next inspiration is an art journal page.

On this page I played with my watercolors in blue and yellow,

black gesso, transparency, silhouette and collage paper.

For my focale point I used also a couple from the new Tim Holtz paper dolls.

I used from Scrap Fx

Wordy Peeps transparency Scrapbook layout

Flower Frenzy transparency Art journal page

Bunch of Flowers BLACK Art journal page

Kraft Words STEAMPUNK Scrapbook layout

Text & Typeface LARGE FONT Art journal page


As always please use this link for your visit to the company Scrap Fx:

Thank you so much for joining my blog post today.

I hope I was able enough to inspire you with my projects.

I see you in June for my next blog post.
