"Wedding" for gothic arches

Sorry, couldn't help my self - I simply adore those stamps! My children gave me 5 new ones for christmas so I better use them...
At least the colour is romantic (worn lipstick).

" FACE IT" with Leonardo da vincis Mona Lisa for wednesdaystampers

At Ws this week the challenge was Leonardo da Vinci. I don't have a lot of stamps to this theme, in fact the only one i have is the one and only Mona Lisa. So instead of making something totaly new I finished of my journal page called " face it" where I used Mona Lisas face as well.
Hope you like it!

"shabby chic" for Gothic arches

This is my entry for this weeks challenge at Gothic arches. Hope you like my chic lady!
The background is a wine label from a great austalian wine - the ONLY label I was able to get off without ruining it. I think that the guy that puts labels on wine bottles should think more carefully about the glue he uses - I want to recycle them!

the "wish" for wednesdaystampers

A bit late but not too late...
My first journal page for my new art journal(a la Jaine ,of course).
I really enjoyed this one - I'm getting crazy with all my wonderful stamps - just love this hobby!
Stamps from cherrypie, kaiserscrapbook, inqueboutique, paperbag studios and sunshinedesigns.
I used gesso, wrapping paper, watercolours, punchinella, a book page and callico.
I hope you like it!

Transparencies for "scrap a la fraise"

I 've decided to start an art journal project with " scrap a la fraise" group in France. This project takes on the form of an altered book with fortnightly prompts to give us inspiration.
The above pictures are from the first prompt wich was to use transparencies. I've used acetate which I stamped on to, mesh, gesso and water colour paint, a die cut from clear plastic and glass squares.

"birthstone" for gothic arches

Happy 2010 everybody!

I!m looking forward to this new and fresh decade!
So here we go again;
My birthmonth is july so I had to make something with a ruby and here you see the result of that challenge...

According to the chinese astrology I am a snake so I took the snake stamp from artemio and stamped it as a background.
Other stamps used ;
de stempelwinkel, stampotique, heidi swapp and kelly panacci

Hope you all like it!
I wish you all the very best for this year - healthwise, familywise, funwise, stampwise, creativwise and of course otherwise... the very best in deed!!!
