Art Recipe: Weekly spread in my Canvo bullet journal

The Maker Deli - Weekly spread in my Canvo bullet journal

Time for some “just for fun” projects, yay! I wanted to play in my Canvo bullet journal a bit, so I decided to create my weekly spread while testing some new supplies. I also used a variety of stamps and stencils that are perfect for bullet journaling from my store The Maker Deli. Thankfully, I remembered to put up my camera, so here’s a quick video showing how the bullet journal spread came together. Not one of my fanciest projects, but I definitely had fun. At the end, I actually liked that page. Nothing flashy or exciting, but some settle…

Video collaboration with Justine Hovey - Distress Oxide Techniques

Hey and welcome to my blog. Today is all about Distress Oxides. Justine Hovey, one of my favorite crafty friends, organized a massive collaboration throughout the month of April and she got together with a variety of crafters to share techniques, new products and fun ideas around card making. The collaboration between her and myself is all about Distress Oxides and ideas for what you can do with them. Her techniques are a bit more “clean and simple” compared to mine. I just had to showcase some messy ones 🙂 Check out my video for 4 mixed media Distress Oxide…

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.

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…

Negative stamping with Distress Oxide and ArtFoamies

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.
