Superstition for SODAlicious


-Having a danish husband, I`m used to the 7-9-13  (free translation "knock on wood") and this is my entry for the no 47 art journal challenge at SODAlicious.

Have a great time, everybody!


"TRAVEL" for the Q&L challenge

Travel! That is the word for me!
Having a husband who seems born to travel, he always pushes me to try different and exciting destinations . With him, I have seen a lot in this world - without him, I`m quit sure, I would have seen only a 10th... ( like a good friend of mine would have said here -"bless his butt"...)

For this page, I used stamps from Scrapbook Werkstatt (Weltenbummler by Stephanie Berger) and from Kaisercraft (Memory boxes). Other materials ; dylusion inks, a TCW template and a lot of WOW embossing powder.

I found 3 very nice AND true quotes - the best (according to me) is still "to travel is to take a journey into yourself".

Hope you like this entry to the Q&L challenge at the craft barn, where the words given this fortnight is flower and/or travel.

And now I have the inspiration to finish my travel journal from our last trip...

Take care out there!

the word "ART" for the Craft Barn

I really had fun, finding myself again, creating this journal page. The word this fortnight is "art" and I made it for the Q&L challenge at the Craft Barn.

Checking the net for quotes , I found this one too - I thought it was a bit creepy though...;
"Art is to console those who are broken by life" - Vincent van Gogh
 I decided to stick to my stamp with the quote "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life" instead...

This page made me happy - trying to stay true to myself and what I believe in... I hope that somebody out there might like it!

Material used:
Stamps from Sodalicious, Glitz, Hema, Hampton art, Aladine and  ILS.
Lots of WOW embossing powder, Dylusion ink, Distress stain and some washi tape.

Have a nice week!

Q&L challenge "AGE"

Here we go again -
the last Q&L challenge at the craft barn is about marriage or age.
I chose the word age and used the good old quote ;
" Age is of no importance unless you are wine or cheese".

The background is gessoed ans painted with neocolorsII. The stamps are Reprint and Paperartsy.

Hope you like it!
