Single blog post 13@rts

 Hello my dear blog reader,  and welcome to my blog post for the company 13@rts. Here is the link: Before I will start with new inspirations about the upcoming paper collections, I want to show you my scrapbook layout in mixed media style with one of the old paper collections called "Rosalie" and a photo of my daughter Mia with her grandmother Ilse. It`s your day... A closer look to my page. I colored the chipboards from 13@rts with Color Glow Emerald and the word girl  with the coral color from the 13@rts watercolor set. I added behind my photo paper from the Bella paper collection. I framed the photo of my daughter with the new 3D impresslits floral frame from Tim Holtz. My paper was one sheet from the Rosalie A6 card set. My title is from the 13@rts word cardstock. I colored my title also with the 13@rts watercolor set in the color coral. Under my photo is a butterfly from the Sunrise paper collection. The male photo is from my vintage paper photo collec

Scrapbook layouts and art journal page for the company Scrap Fx

 Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog post for the company Scrap Fx Australia. Here is the link: The month of February stands for romantic, love and roses, but there is so much more. The ending of winter and the sensuality of spring begins. The dark nights are getting shorter and the daylight is getting more bright. The first birds come back from the winter quarters and delight me with their beautiful morning singing. But anyway. I created with the February release "Steampunk" two scrapbook layouts and one art journal page. Steampunk in blue.. A closer look to my page: I chose for my focale point another vintage photo image from my stash, which I covered with a white wash first and than crackle glaze for an altered effect. The wings are from ScrapFx transparency sheet. The round number image is a stamp image also from ScrapFx.

Here is the link : Our February challenge is: Word: Romance Creative challenge: Rose (this can be an image of a rose or the color rose) Description: Scrapbooking in mixed media style is my passion, my joy and the secret of my energy.

February IG challenge 13@rts

 Hello and welcome to my Instagram challenge inspiration for the company 13@rts. I created a scrapbook layout in mixed media style. Our mood board is a beautiful colorful board. I was immediately inspired by the photo in the left corner. The lilac- dark violet color with a touch of yellow and the lemon green, just perfect for what I had in mind. Years ago I took a photo with my smartphone from the  hairdresser- magazine during my visit by the hairdresser.  I started on a sheet paper from the Dreamland paper collection from 13@rts which I covered completely with a mix of Rainbow color, color glow and Acrylic medium.
