Scraps of Darkness - Fly


Kerstin is back with a new layout for the August 
Scraps of Darkness Sparkle & Shine Kit. 
Today  you can see how easy it is to create with our month kit's.
The Kit's are so arranged that all the components fit well in color and style.

I used a Prima Marketing background paper from Prima's Rose Quartz Collection, stickers, black tags and the beautiful roses from this collection.
In our Elements Add On Kit you will find book pages Ephemera: Music, an amazing crochet trim, cardstock stickers and this awesome feathers, which I also used in my last layout 'Smile often'.

some close up's

Have you seen the 'Grace' sheet from Rose Quartz Collection, perfect for cutting out, or?!
together with some deco elements a wonderful addition to a black and white photo.

I still had a rest from this delicate feather and so I used a puffy sticker butterfly and the feather for a new smart highlight on this layout.

Happy crafting!

such as DecoColor Gold Calligraphy Paint Marker.

GD Calico Craft Parts - Nautical Frame

 I'm so excited and happy to be invited to the Calico Craft Parts Blog
 as a guest designer this month.
I was very impressed when I finally saw the amazing pieces from Calico Craft Parts in original.
They immediately reminded me of my time as a "woodworm" ;-)  
yes, I loved working with wood -  mainly scroll saw projects. 
Calico's wooden shapes are so filigree and I could never have done this with a jigsaw! And their natural shades are wonderful too. 

As you may already know I have a soft spot for the sea with all its wonderful and mysterious creatures, and when I saw the wonderful aquatic and marine wood shapes at the Calico Craft Parts shop I was immediately inspired to create a new mixed media home decoration piece.

 Before and After

My base was an old simple plastic frame, but I fell in love with it
because it looks like a store window or a TV, right?!

How I did it:

Calico Craft Parts wood shapes used:


 I chose old book pages and black tissue paper in combination with white crackle paint and some brown shades from a Glimmer Mist spray. A very easy technique but I wanted a wonderfully neutral and more subtle background for the beautiful wooden shapes. I only used very few colours -  a patina green, black, white and a little bit neon green for a magical effect, because the Galleon boat reminded me of the 'Black Pearl'
(you know what I mean?)  Yes, I admit it : I'm a big fan of the Pirates of Carribean stories.
some close up's

I highlighted the crab and kelp with just some little pearls and used  transparent gel as glue

I used the untreated Ships Wheel as a base and added the Galleon Boat  for a 3D effect.
I love to combine the various sizes of the wood shapes to create layers!


At the end of the process I decided to make one of my favourite sayings the focal element, but that
may well be exchanged with a photo sometime.


I am not a person of many words, so I would like to say a heartfelt THANK YOU
for your invitation in the form of a small extra project on which I used
my absolute favourite among the Calico Craft Parts wood shapes:

in combination with the gorgeous

Thanks for your visit! 
I hope this was a bit of inspiration for you!
I will return at the end of the month with a 
new, spooktacular project and I hope you will then stop by again  :-)

Happy crafting!

DT Scraps of Darkness - Wanderlust

Hello everyone!

Kerstin is back with another vintage inspired layout. 
Have you seen this wonderful resin frame from Prima in our July Wayfarer Elements On Kit,
beautiful or?!

Together with this background paper and the printed chipboards from the Wanderlust collection a perfect opportunity for me to make a travel theme layout.

I colored the frame with a Glimmer Mist Spray, a really simple method to give the frame an altered look, the new paper dolls from my stuff were a wonderful addition

chipboard was highlighted with an marble (black + copper) embossing powder 

some emphera pieces from our Main Kit were very suitable for this 'Travel' theme

I'm always in love with this amazing flowers from 49 and Market, also contain in the Main Kit

Thanks for your visit!
