Tim Holtz challenge for wednesdaystampers

The "Guru himself" with all his grunge and distress techniques...
I love his style and I love his projects.
I've made a canvas using "his" products, like stamps, distress inks, perfect pearls, grungebord, snaps and his die cuts.
Hope you all like it!
Great challenge!

wild animals for wednesdaystampers

Very late, but still...
Sorry Gothic Arches - I can't see eggs anymore as easter is over. So instead of thinking "eggs" I thought of Antonius. Antonius is a lovely stamp bought from Stempelwinkel last autumn and I hadn't used "him" before. "Wild animal" is this weeks theme on wednesdaystampers and I think that the wildest animal must be the human itself.
Great theme! Sorry I'm a bit late... no time during the week and this weekend it was nice and sunny so we spent the time in the garden!

Wish you all a nice and sunny weekend!

prompt 6 for "scrap a la fraise"

This was funny too!
As far as I understood, we should use scripts and so I did.
Hope you like it!

scrap a la fraise prompt 7 (livre altere)

The prompt last week was to use 3 different techniques with distress inks. I tried a new style and in the end I did like it. Enjoy!

Fabric book a' la Jaine chez" scrap a la fraise".

Grandpa is celebrating his birthday next week so I made him this little fabric book at scrapalafraise last saturday.

I took some old and new pictures of the grandchildren.

I like the effect of black thread on an acrylic background. The sewing is no longer only a seam, but a decoration itself.

Some of the embellishments are from a kit I bought from Caroline that day. I just love her kits. She has got some lovely ideas. It's like christmas to open that bag, because you never know what she put in! I just know that I won't ever get disappointed.

I had to hurry up making the photos, 'cause I had to send the book today. So I'm sorry if some of the pictures are not the best quality!

We used some glimmer mists too. And Belinda showed me some cool techniques aswell. Thank you, Belinda!

The stamps are mainly from Tim Holtz' new collection and I think they fit so well. A very talented man, I must say...

It was Jaine who held the workshop and I think she made a good job. Thank you, dear friend!

My fathers wirework - his easter hens.

This one is one of my favorites. Just love that dingling eye!

This one is perfect for outside. I decorate it according to season - like now, with easter eggs.
