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

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.

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!

Welcome!

I hope our winter, which was actually not a winter at all, is over soon.

Grey, wet and some days it just doesn’t seem to get light at all.

But sometimes, even after frosty nights, you could discover a landscape

enchanted by hoarfrost.

This was my inspiration for my mixed media collage today.

 some close up’s

At the last trade fair we made some mushrooms of egg carton with our children.
They made enthusiastically fly mushrooms, that seemed contagious
and so I was inspired to tried another variant myself.

I used our wonderful winter collection ‘Holiday in the Alps’

‘Let it snow’ ; ‘Deers’ and some suitable monochrome papers.

Many thanks for your visit!

Have  a good time!

Kerstin

Hello Maja fans!

Mary with you today and I have a new layout to share made for my November inspiration using gorgeous Maja Design papers, Dusty Attic chipboard and 49 and Market flowers.

And again I found on Pinterest a photo that inspired me to create that romantic layout in red and green tones. But, before I continue more I want to give all the proper credits to the ”unknown” photographer.

The paper I used is the ”Walk With Me” from the Vintage Romance collection and I started by applying a coat of clear gesso. Then, I created texture with Finnabair icing paste in White Gold and a stencil. When the paste dried, I randomly stamped using 49 and Market stamp sets. I added color with the Lindy’s Gang ”Edelweiss Moss Green” and ”Greased Lightnin’ Green” sprays.

Next, I painted the ”Flower Buds #2” with Finnabair Royal Red and Golden Moss acrylic paints. Continued with the ”Ornate Motifs #2” and the title which were also painted with the Golden Moss paint and then some wax in Green Brocade was randomly rubbed on them. And lastly, I used the Finnabair Sparks paint in Raven Black to color the ”Fancy Label” chipboard.

I layered all the gorgeous elements around my photo and added in some 49 and Market  flowers from the ”Blossom Blends, Country & Cottage Blooms” sets.

At last, I added art stones, glass beads and glitter and made splatters with white gesso diluted with water.

Paper used:

I hope you enjoyed my project!

Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome dear creative friends!

Winter is just around the corner and although I haven’t been able to develop any winter feelings yet,

I was totally enthusiastic about the new ‘Holiday in the Alps’ collection.

I love the colour combination blue – brown – white,

 optimal for every vintage style but you can also create very natural winter landscapes with it.

 I chose a picture of our Sheltie during a beautiful forest walk last year.
