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.

One color per card using Nuvo from Tonic Studio

Tonic Studion Nuvo one color per card

Hi everyone, I had a fun idea for a project and thought I’d share this with you 😉 When I was sorting through my Nuvo mediums, I realized that all of the products match nicely when used in the same color palette (what a revelation, I know 😉 ), so I wondered how cards made with Nuvo products in only one color would look like. Trying not to spoil anything, but it was a lot of fun 😉 Have you ever tried making something in only one color? Maybe now is the right time to do it (again) 😉 Supplies…

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. There is nothing better than following the process in a video, so without any further delay: How fun is that? Btw, I need a name for the piggy 😉 Supplies Used Some of my links are affiliate links which means I earn a small commission, if you use my links to shop.

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.

Alison Bomber release for PaperArtsy – Love Poem

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. I made a tag highlighting one of the sentiments which makes it look like a love poem. 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…

Let’s Jump with Creative Jumpstart

Let’s Jump with Creative Jumpstart

Welcome to 2019 and an entire year of excitement and creativity. January is starting off with a great treat – Creative Jumpstart, this year with the theme “My Home is My Castle”. The Creative Squad jumps with all the 31 artists (and hopefully you?) and shares their interpretation of the theme. My project is a set of wings that has been laying around for a while now. I thought that it is perfect for my next home decor piece, so I grabbed it and stared at the wings for a while. I rarely work in a size like that and…
