Punched elements for Creavil.

Hello again!

Right now, the team from Creavil would like as to do something out of punched elements. This is my contribution, using dies from Sizzix and Tim Holtz. The background is a collage made out of different papers, Neocolor 2, an old lace from grandma's leftovers and my new stamp from Jo Copper-Sandons collection. Love it!

Nice theme - I'm starting to like orange again...

mixed colours for the GPP street team crusade 53

My favorite colour right now is the one I would call "taupe". So by mixing black,brown and white I tried to find the perfect match. I still had some samples after painting our "africa room", so I found names for 10 of the mixtures and the last 3 (x,y and z)I named myself (granite, taupe and sand). And because I liked the idea, I made a spread in my altered book with the samples and finished it of with some gesso and the colour turquoise.

And while I had the acrylics out I tried to find a green colour called "menthe" to go with the "taupe", so I made another spread with a lot of different green shades. The colours I used here was icee, turquoise, lemon yellow, oxide black, burnt umber and titanium white.

So this is the my contribution to crusade 53 at the GPP street team this month.

Great fun!

Vacances Journal spread

My spread for the theme "vacances".
Stamps from Tim Holtz and Stella art.
The photo is from last years whole family holiday in Moliets-et-Maa(France).
I just adore the beach there and the rough ocean is great for surfing. This was an evening walk back home from the panini place. One of the last evenings I believe - I can still remember how I felt ; a bit sad for leaving, a bit stressed to pack the car, a bit nervous for the long way back in the car...
And most of all; I had this urge to stare at the ocean and try to make like a photo in my head so I would remember the nice days here and how happy I felt as the whole family was together, know what I mean?

The theme was chosen by Laurence who is on holidays right now. Hope she is doing fine up there in Island!

Mermaid for Creavil.

This is my entry to Creavils challengeblog, where the theme this time is mermaids. Quit hard as I didn't have any mermaid stamp, but I made my own out of stamps from "de stempelwinkel" and "cherry pie art stamps". The "tail" is made out of home made paper with stamps from "kesi art" and "stampotique". The background is neocolours 2.

Hope you all like it...

Had/have fun!

the last rubberstamp for WS

Very sad, but still happy for the years with you, I hereby say good bye to wednesdaystampers.

You got me started buying all my stamps and it was always a challenge to find ideas to your themes each wednesday.
And now I cant stop myself from stamping and scrapbooking.

So thank you for that and I wish all of you the very best!

Take care!

canvas 2 and 3 for our next workshop

I cut out the circles with nestabilities and used funny photos of the children. So - yes - the nestabilites do cut through fabric...

The background is a la Donna Downey and I just love the structure. A simple and elegant layout, I would say...

2 more examples for our workshop tomorrow at the Mosaikscrappers. Will be a lot of fun - again!
