Art journal for viva las vegastamps

Hi everyone, I’m super excited to share my very first project for the Viva Las VegaStamps! design team with you – a dreamer of dreams art journal page. Yay. Check out the video here: First of all, I totally love the new Seth Apter spray. The color is just awesome. Perfect for the dreamer of dreams 😉 Half way through the process I thought that I need a moon too – you know, sun, moon and stars – but decided against it. I think that was a good idea, lol. I hope you enjoyed the video and my art journal…

Spring has returned - A mixed media tag for PaperArtsy

Hello, hello, I’m excited to share a mixed media tag for PaperArtsy with you. The theme this time is “Spring”, which was perfect since I love all the spring colors – especially the softer ones (not pastells though, lol). For this tag, I used one of the new Gwen Lafleur stamps, two of the new paints from Seth Apter, and a bunch of other goodness. But check it out for yourself: What do you think? Did I get the spring colors right on this mixed media tag? I definitely had fun playing with those fun patterns from Gwen’s new set.…

A mini Christmas art journal

A Christmas collaboration with DeeDee Catron

Hello everyone, welcome to a fun Christmas video. I made a mini Christmas art journal out of one sheet of paper for this Christmas “special”. These types of journals are my favorite, as they don’t need much time to be put together and you don’t need to sew anything. But see for yourself: I hope you enjoyed my loooong video for the Christmas art journal. Let me know if this length is okay, or if I should avoid 20+ minutes going forward, lol. Thanks so much for stopping by and for your support throughout the year(s). It really means a…

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.

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…

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…
