Hello Scrapbooking friends!
I am very excited and honored to have been invited here this month as Guest Designer. Thanks so much for your invitation!
My name is Kerstin- Inga Peters and I come from Germany. I have been creating for many years now, always in search for new techniques and yet unexplored territory in craftland.
I’m a modern girl with a big vintage heart and my big passion are photos, colours and textures. With Scrapbooking and Mixed Media Style I have found ‘my’ perfect favourite genres – as it combines words and pictures, thoughts and feelings, and the application of various innovative products, techniques and the idea of telling stories.
I love the sea forever and ever. That’s my place for relaxation, dreaming and inspiration.
As I saw the wonderful papers I thought, amazing the right colors for sea, beach and so much more.
My first layout shows our family sunshine ‘Filou’, it’s a sheltie and he has always so much fun on the sea. His favourite occupation is to get sticks or balls out of the water.

Prima flowers, Scrap FX chipboards, Gauze, Texture paste white, Distress Stain Walnut ink, Embossing powder, 3D pearls, sea shells, metal embellishments, driftwood
Some stains and splashes with paints diluted with water, together with some cut outs from the ‘Marina’ paper (flags and lighthouse).
Can you see the waves on my photo? I love the idea to continue some photo elements on the background paper. Here I used a white texture paste and a fan brush for more sea waves.
I also used some hand torn stripes together with colored gauze and a lot of little blue flowers.
Good day – We don’t remember days, we remember moments
Sunshine, beach, the sea and more: while the little ones dig in the biggest sandpit, the grown-ups lounge in a beach chair enjoying the sun or take a refreshing dip in the sea.

I’m a big fan of old sailor ships. The ‘Hanse Sail’ shall take place once at year on the Baltic Sea. You can see there very impressive windjammers,
traditional ships and museum ships. IT’s really a highlight for me and my vintage soul.
So I used here more vintage colors, various brown shades and a wine red.
For the wooden seahorse I used a transparent crackle paste in combination with distress ink and a little bit copper wax creme.
Some motifs from the ‘Regatta’ were very suitable for my photo and I decided to use a round die to cut out these elements.
