Peace for Art Journal Journey

Finally I was able to finish my peace page for Art Journal Journey. I had so many ideas and it was very difficult to decide what to use.
I ended up using stamps from unitystamps, Tim Holtz and Paperartsy, stencils and wood veneers from Sodalicious and some rub-ons.

Hope you like it!

Wish you a nice and bright wednesday!

Letter E for the craft barn challenge

Getting back to work after an almost 4 month break made me stressed. No crafty time and no me time. Today is the first time this week when I can allow myself to let go and enjoy my basement - juhu!

This page is for the the alpha challenge at the craft barn where the letter this fortnight is E.

I started of with the words evolution, evaluation ...and ended with education. Pleased that I finally would be able to use this gorgeous image of a teacher from de stempelwinkel, which I bought in Wiesbaden a year ago.
Other stamps used;
Unitystamps (Christy Tomlinson), My stamp box(border) and Crafty Individuals (dragonfly).
The background is made with dylusion ink sprays through SODAlicious stencils. And the of course, A LOT OF Washitape...

I had fun!
Hope to see you soon again!

Asia (happy new year!) for the artful times

This might seem weird, but hey hoh, here we go!
At the Artful Times they ask for an asian celebration - Happy New Year!

Last september , we went to Thailand and Cambodia - both wonderful places! What stunned me most though, was to stand at Anchor Wat , watching the old inscriptions and look at the paintings, then turn around and watch the people working in the fields just like they did 1000 years ago, according to the wall paintings I'd been looking at.

So this is my "celebration to the people of Cambodia" with the true words of Erich Fromm;

" Who will tell whether
   one happy moment of love
   or the breathing
   or walking on a bright morning
   and smelling the fresh air,
   is not worth all the suffering
   and efforts which life implies."

Happy New Year, Asia!

I wish you all a splendid week!

I go back to work tomorrow after having almost 4 months off, because of my OP in october last year - exciting and a little bit scary...

Take care!
