A Special Moment for AJJ






Finally, I was able to finish these pages for Art Journal Journey's monthly challenge - for march the theme is "special moments".

There are so many moments in life called special, and I really found it hard /difficult to decide the "right" special moment to use. But as I'm still very excited about the weekend with Nathalie Kalbach here in Luxemburg, I thought I could use that memory as a special moment...

The background is a "credit card make" and later covered with Donna Downeys "poppie foam stamp" .
Other stamps used;
Dina Wakley, PaperArtsy, Scrapbook Werkstatt and Sizzix.

The words are memories from that weekend.

Love to you all!

Lena

My baby has got her own baby now...


there is nothing as cute as a puppy... always hungry... keeps us busy...MUMIN!

 
Love Lena

the letter P for the craft barn



This is my entry to the craft barns alpha challenge - letter P = "pose".

I made the background last weekend attending Nathalie Kalbachs workshops here in Luxemburg; We had a great time with Nathalie, trying different of her techniques with PanPastels and acrylics. Then finishing of the weekend creating a canvas.

I used stamps from paperArtsy and Unitystamps.

Today (even yesterday) winter retuned AGAIN!  We all long for better temperatures and spring feelings ...

Wish you all a great week with lots of sun and happy feelings!

"trapped" for SODAlicious


"Trapped" is  a difficult challenge - I could only think of cages and terrified birds. But today, checking my stuff from SODAlicious, I could feel another sollution building up inside my head.
I used the "thank you for your order-card" and the alphabet, the stencil, chipboad and the stamps - all from SODAlicious.

"WORDS TRAPPED IN A STORY"

So, this is my entry to SODAlicious' challenge no 22.

I wish you all a jolly weekend - I will definitely have a crafty one ;
NATHALIE KALBACH IS COMING TO TOWN - giving 3 workshops!!!

SOOO much looking forward to this!!!

Take care out there!

Love at first sight!






Hello again!

As I follow Stephanie Schützes blog, I noticed that she joined another design team. And because I really like her style, I went to check out this (for me) new place, called the paperdvizhnik.

I followed the sketch and this is my entry to the challenge (ending  march 18th).

The background paper is a Heidi Swapp color magic (- lovely to use if you want to add your own colour to the page). Other papers are from Stephanie Berger ( Scrapbook Werkstatt) and labels from Studio Calico.

The colours are Dylusion spray inks and mister Hueys color mists.

I had fun - hope you like it!

Circles and straight lines for the Artful Times


The Artful Times would like to see some circles and stripes this time.. I made this canvas, using washi tape, acrylics, modelling paste, felt stickers and this great quote by Laurence J. Peter;

" When in doubt or danger,
   run in circles, scream and shout."

Love it...(!!!)

 Wish you all a wonderful start of a new week!

This is my page for the new challenge over at the craft barn.
This time we should use the letter M and I chose the word "measure".
The background is layered acrylics and the stamps cherry pie art stamps, inkado, creavil, denim and infocrea. Otherwise I used felt letters and a lot of different washi tapes.

LOMO LOVE






Hello again!
Life is moving very fast right now and I have this weird feeling that I'm running, trying to breath and trying to keep up at the same time.
This little dog here is one of the reasons. He came to our family 2 weeks ago in the age of 6 months. Hard work because he is used to jump from one bin to the other, coming from dog slum at Teneriffe. And here we are - I'm just so much in love with this little life - we all are...
So this is my presentation of our familymember MUMIN!

The spread is my entry to SODAlicious art journal challenge lomo love. The little booklet is homemade out of sodalicious papers, cards, stencils, stamps ... I was happy to be able to join the challenge as I have got lomo on Picassa - otherwise no fun...:-)

Hope you like it!

Now I'm off to our cabaret "Makadammen" - a luxemburgish play about being female. Let's hope we will all have a nice evening.
