Hall of fame

Hello everyone,

and Happy Sunday ! I have another art journal page for you today ! I have used the newly released dog planner props. I also used a gelli printed background and some pattern paper to put behind the dog heads. Here it is:

How fun is that ! I added some stencilling to my gelli print and also some doodle lines along the edges. The images were printed and coloured and put together to make these little portraits. 
I think it turned out really sweet.

You'll find the doggies HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Merry - bright

Hello everyone,

Today I have a trio of rusty ATC's I made for Um Wow Studio to share. I made them a little shabby too as I thought it went well with the rusty backgrounds...

And here's how I made these... 

I used embossing powders on the chipboards. I used brass on the Elk's head and the stars, Red & Sparkly on the little circle that wasn't really a chipboard but a loose piece from inside a chipboard that fell out and I used for his nose.

Here is how that looks. 

Next I added some shading with my Big Brush Pens... 

Looks a bit more interesting like this I think. 

The paper was made with acrylic paint in 'iron' and it was made rusty with a patina spray.. I added some embossing and made sure it looked a little shabby... I also added some sari ribbon and some embroidery twine. 

On this card I also added the sari ribbon and embroidery twine and like on the other two a little doodling with a gold pen around the edges. 

This one got the same treatment too ! 

Here is another look at all three... 

I have used the following Chipboards:

A grateful heart

Hello everyone !

Hallo allemaal !

Today, for my post for Hobbycompleet de Duif, I have a tag to show you ! 

Voor vandaag heb ik een label gemaakt om te laten zien: 

I started with cutting a tag from white card stock. I added the stencilling with Distress Ink in Pumice Stone and I used the same ink to go around the edges. I then stamped the letters with Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick. 
I used a piece of book text on the tag to place my heart on. I painted it and the area underneath with white paint to make the text a little less obvious and to bring all the colours together. I then stamped, coloured and cut out the heart and adhered it onto the book text. I added the Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker and the ribbon and that was it ! 
Om te beginnen heb ik een label gesneden uit wit card stock. Hierop heb ik met een stencil en Distress Inkt de circles aangebracht. Ik heb ook de randjes van de label be-inkt.
Op een paar plaatsen heb ik met rose Distress Oxide Inkt de letters gestempeld en toen was ik wel tevreden met de achtergrond. Vervolgens heb ik uit een oud boek een pagina gescheurd en een stukje hiervan met witte acrylverf bewerkt. Omdat dit niet zo wit was als de label heb ik op de label zelf ook wat van dezelfde verf aangebracht; daar waar het stukje boek paper is geplakt.
Daarna heb ik het vliegende hart gestempeld en ingekleurd met dezelfde inkten. Ik heb het daarna uitgeknipt en op het boekpapier geplakt. Als laatste heb ik een lintje door het gaatje gehaald en dat was het !

Ik heb de volgende materialen gebruikt:

Distress Ink - Pumice Stone
Distress Oxide Ink - Worn Lipstick
Stencil - Carabelle MA40101 "Accumulation de ronds"
Stempel - Carabelle SA60324 "Alphabet"
Stempel - Carabelle SA60322  "Venus"
Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker (je kan natuurlijk ook een stempel gebruiken...)
Stukje lint naar keuze
Dank je wel voor je bezoek vandaag !

Thank you for stopping by today ! 

Prendre le temps

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for Katzelkraft today !

I have made a mini AJ page and this is it :

These three don't seem to happy to see the time pass.... lol 
Anyway, I used one of my Gelli printed backgrounds; I stamped it randomly with the little clock from the clock set and then placed part of the big clock in the corner. I added some thin lines with a black pen along the edges of the page. 
Next I stamped the monsters, on white card stock and on the background. I coloured them, cut them out and adhered them to the page. I added some shading under them and then added the sentiment. That was it ! 

I used the following stamps :

Peace is always beautiful !

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my weekly Vera Lane Studio blogpost. This week I have made a card. I used the newly released "Peaceful Picasso" set.

I arranged the images on a piece of card stock and printed them out. I then cut out a card front with a die. I like the stitched edge this gives. Next I coloured everything with my Copic Markers and looked through my stash for a piece of pattern paper to mat the panel on. I settled for this yellow which is a really old paper from he Cosmo Cricket Social Club paper pad. 
That finished the card. 

I have used this set :

Art is anything you can get away with.

Hello everyone,

Today I have a tiny little book to show you. I made this for VivaLasVegaStamps! but that was not exactly planned that way.

Sometimes I just fancy doing something different and one day I made a little booklet from one sheet of 12' x 12' paper. It was lying on my desk when I  thought to cover the outside of it in fabric and next to add gesso to the cover and the pages too. Before I knew it I had stencilled, stamped and doodled on the pages and this little book was born ! I love it and will make more !

Here is the outside. If you want to make one of these books; there are lots of tutorials on the internet and youtube. Just look for 'book from one sheet of 12 x 12 paper'. 

There are 8 double spread mini art journals in this book and here are the photos. 

Spread no. 1
I used an UmWow Studio stencil and Distress Oxides for this. 

Spread 2. Stencil used is by UmWow Studio and I used Distress Oxide Ink.

Spread 3. Stencil by UmWow Studio, used with Distress Oxide Ink.

Spread 4. Stencil by UmWow Studio, used with Distress Oxide Ink. 

Spread 5. Stencil by PaperArtsy used with Distress Oxide ink.

Spread 6. Stencil by UmWow Studio, used with Distress Oxide Ink.

Spread 7. Stencil by UmWow Studio, used with Distress Oxide Ink. 

Spread 9. Stencil by UmWow Studio, used with Distress Oxide Ink. 

Another view of the book. 

And the back. 

I have used a lot of stamps for this book.

Hello everyone,
Hallo allemaal,

Today I have a post for Hobbycompleet de Duif. I got these fab Carabelle Studio goodies to create something with and this is what i made :
Vandaag heb ik een art journal pagina voor Hobbycompleet de Duif. Ik kreeg deze geweldige artikelen van Carabelle Studio toegestuurd en dit is het eerste project wat ik er mee gemaakt heb. 

The base for this page is pattern paper. I have stencilled it with white paint and stamped and heat embossed it too. I added some stitching with my sewing machine around the edges and added some washi tape. I then stamped the lady and the wings, coloured them, cut them out and arranged them on the page. The word 'beauty' finished it off. 

De basis voor deze pagina is patroon/designpapier. Ik heb dit gestempeld en gestencild. De stempelafdrukken zijn met embossing poeder bewerkt. Gebruik hiervoor een kleur die bij je achtergrond past. 
Ik heb de randen met de naaimachine gestikt en hier en daar wat washi tape geplakt. 
Daarna de dame en de vleugels gestempeld, ingekleurd en samengevoegd op de pagina geplakt. Als laatste het woord 'beauty' toegevoegd. 

I have used the following materials :
