Creative freedom using herbs and ArtFoamies

Creative freedom using herbs and ArtFoamies

Last month was my husband’s birthday. I’m always struggling with finding a good present, especially since we usually just buy what we want. So, I wanted to make something for him and decided to create some cooking themes ATCs. These ATCs have been a journey though. I started with a set of colors that didn’t turn out the way I was hoping and then I went all sorts of crazy. Follow me on my creative journey in this quick video. Fancy, right? Eventhough these ATCs went in all sorts of directions, I had a blast – and that’s what it …

ATCs made from left overs with Tonic Studio

ATCs made from left overs with Tonic Studio

During my last project, I used one of the background dies to create a stencil. That stencil ended up looking really cool. So, I decided to use it for my next project – surprise, it’s this one 😉 I made two ATCs and totally enjoyed the process. The left over stencil also fits very well to them, don’t you think? Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 I hope you enjoyed my little project today. Supplies Used Some of my links are affiliate links which means I earn a small commission, if you use my links to shop.

Mail art with PaperArtsy

Mail art with PaperArtsy

This was an exciting topic from PaperArtsy. Mail art – I have never attempted mail art before. Or at least not really. doodles don’t count 😉 For this topic, I used Sara Naumann’s new set. The grungy bird silhouettes seemd to fit very well. I also combined it with an older stencil from Darcy. But see for yourself. Have you tried mail art before? If so, I’d love to see your projects. Tag me on Instagram, so I can find them 🙂 Supplies Used Some of my links are affiliate links which means I earn a small commission, if you …

Today we smile with Nathalie Kalbach

Today we smile with Nathalie Kalbach

Last month’s theme over at Nathalie’s Creative Squad was today we smile. And what’s the best way to get your dose of daily smiling? Exactly, crafting. So, I grabbed some of Nat’s amazing red rubber stamp designs (pressed by RubberMoon) and got all painty. Here you can see how I added all the layers and ended up with a for me totally new look. I’m super excited about the contrast of the white house against the bright and textured background. I bet I will use that technique again.

Eeeek, I’m super excited about this art journal page. First of all, that pig is so stinkin’ cute and second, I had so much fun with that background.

Layer after layer with Gel Press and ArtFoamies

Creating layers is so much fun. I enjoy to add them and then looking at projects to see all the layers shining through. Not one project will look like another, they will always be different which makes it so unique. Here is my latest tag with all the different layers. Also a great idea for using up some ephemera or images from magazines or books. Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂 Supplies Used Some of my links are affiliate links which means I earn a small commission, if you use my links to shop. No worries though, you won’t …

Alison Bomber release for PaperArtsy - Love Poems

PaperArtsy is releasing one new stamp after another and everyone of them is special. I really enjoy the variety from all of the designers and what they bring to the table. I’m super excited to share a project with you that is using one of these new stamps – Alison Bomber’s The Love Edition.

The love poem I picked is from Kahlil Gibran (more info on Wikipedia – in case you are interested) and I mixed it with a grungy background. Hop on …

Introducing new PaperArtsy stamps from Seth Apter

Hi everyone, I’m super excited to share this art journal page with you. Not only was I able to play with the new PaperArtsy stamps from Seth Apter but I also experimented with a different mix of colors. But see for yourself. Enjoy 🙂 At the end the page had something magical, even with the more mechanical looking images from Seth’s set. Color can really change how we perceive certain things and it’s so much fun to experiment with that. Supplies Used Close Ups
