It is nice to have friends - and most of the time even useful (!). My good , old "craft buddy Jaine"  had a lovely parcel arriving from the UK the other day. I was allowed to try out some of her new treasures and ended up with this little house ( using sizzix birdshouse 658451 and cobweb blueprint 659371).

Wish you all a groovy halloween!

SODAlicious challenge no 37 - sleep

This is my art journal spread for the last challenge at SODAlicious -  the theme is "sleep".

Of course, I only use SODAlicious products for their challenges - just love it!

Wish you all the very best!

Take care out there and don´t forget to buy sweets for the trick&treats on thursday!


letter N and spooktacular

... well, well, well... never said my english was perfect!
Today , the letter N was chosen for the fortnightly dictionary challenge at the craft barn.
I started this page thinking "neon" until I realized that the english word must be fluo, like in french. SOOO - rethinking...
I found my gorgeous cherry pie art stamps and made the page into a spooky " NECROMANCY" entry. And because it is spooky, I may enter the challenge at artful times where the theme is "spooktacular".

Wish you all a colourful Halloween!

mini album sommer 2013

 I found the idea to this little mini album here and then made it "my own" by turning it into a kind of star.
 You can chose to keep it in the star shape...
 ...or as an accordion .
And when you are tired of watching the nice pictures - you bind it together and put it aside.

This book is made out of papers from the swedish company Maja Design , called "skärgaardsliv - life by the sea".

....and then, of course A LOT of washitape.

Hope you like it.

letter L with a twist - a window...

... and here we go again;
This fortnight, the letter at the craft barn is the letter L. I chose the word "lodge" and used an old rubber stamp - maybe "my" lodge is a little bit too fancy and big to be called a lodge, but this is how the page turned out.
The background is made with Neocolor II and distressed inks.

I wish you all a nice weekend!

a distressed automne tag

My automne tag for Crafty Individuals (theme; automne colours) and Artful Times (theme; feeling distressed).

I used some stencils with modelling paste to get the textured background and then stamped with CI -203. The colours are disressed inks with a lot of gesso to get the right look.

Hope you like it!


Splatter and stamping for the craft stamper

Finally automne arrived and the trees start to sparkle in yellow, brown and orange.
Inspired by these automne colours, I made this journal page using different splatter techniques and Tim Holtz' alterations "acorn blueprint".
So, this page is my entry to challenge no 5 at Craft stampers.

Just LOVE these stamps! And I do think it is good value too - 3 stamps and 5 dies in one set...

Wishing you all a great sunday!
