Welcome Maja friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout to a natural garden theme.

I love this time in my garden when the lavender is in bloom and it’s a beautiful characteristic

 because the dried lavender flowers keep their scent for an extremely long time.

They are ideal for decoration, potpourris and to fill sachets.

  

 I used the paper sheet ‘Lace’ from the – Denim & Girls – paper collection as background and some cut outs from Vintage Spring Basics collection.  Matching the nature theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace & jute, sisal, dried & artificial lavender flowers and branches to the mixed media layout.

Wish you a good time!

Welcome Maja friends!

Today a new inspiration layout with our latest paper collection ‘Little Street Cafe’.

It’s so wonderful to enjoy a good cup of coffee with a delicious piece of cake in beautiful spring weather. Here you can only do this on the balcony or terrace at the moment, but when the sun is shining and with a good book in your hand, the day immediately looks friendlier again.

 

 

I used  the ‘Plum’ monochrome paper from the suitable collection ‘Shades of Cafe’. Matching some hand torn strips of  ‘Coffee al fresco’, ‘ The best place’ and ‘Something sweet’. I cut out the main motif with the beautiful lady and inserted her as the center point with 3D pads, matching the current corona rules with sufficient distance ;-).

That was a joke because we don’t have to keep our distance to coffee and cake yet,

although that would certainly be better for a perfect bikini figure :-).

I hope I could inspire you to take time again for the beautiful things in life!

Happy crafting!

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout as memory on a beautiful vacation last year

to Madeira, it’s a beautiful island situated in the north Atlantic Ocean.

We visited the Flower Festival in spring.
There was an enchanting flower parade, where people danced happily through the streets.

A sea of colours, shapes and scents, simply unforgettably beautiful.

 Always suitable for a spring or flowery theme is the latest paper amazing collection ‘ Little street Cafe’

 I used the paper sheet ‘Something sweets’ as background together with ‘The best place’.  Matching the flowery theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, and some Prima Marketing embellishments and flowers to the mixed media layout.

 Thanks for your visit!
Stay safe everyone and take care of yourselves and your loved ones…

A true gentlemen

Welcome creative friends!

I was inspired to create a mixed media layout in vintage grunge style.

It’s a scrapbook page for a boy with one of my favourite collections ‘Denim & Friends’.

I used the paper sheet ‘Worn Indigo’ as background, a fantastic colour shade it looks like original Blue Jeans

and some leftovers from the paper sheets ‘Jeans and Shirt’ and ‘Sunbleached’.

I love to create in vintage style and a grunge look is perfect for a masculine layout.

I want a weathered look and so I used a white crackle paint applied with a spatula for the edge.

Together with some stamps a great effect.

 the borders from the paper sheets are always a wonderful addition, I use them very often
an awesome MDF shape in steampunk style from Calico Craft Parts
together with a lightbulb from Prima Marketing
Thanks for your visit!

Hello creative friends!

I’m back with a new inspiration for you,

it’s a vintage layout with our latest very romantic paper collection

 ‘ Little street cafe’.

 

 I used the paper sheet ‘Meeting friends’ together with a monochrome paper ‘Vanilla’ as background and some cut outs from ‘Die cut’.

Matching the vintage theme I added some chipboards from Dusty Attic, some remnants of lace, old book pages and

some Prima Marketing metal embellishments and flowers to the mixed media layout.

some close up’s

stains and splatters with Distress ink for a coffee mood in used look

the time is right

a wonderful aroma emanates from the coffee cup makes with a flourish chipboard

 

Happiness is a cup of coffee or chocolate???

preferably with a delicious homemade cake, or?!

 Thanks for your visit!
I hope I could inspire you to use this beautiful papers
 for some happy hours on your crafting table.
Wish you a happy time!
