Time for Secrets

Hi scrappy friends,

It was the right time for a classic scrapbook layout. My favorite topic of course is my Sheltie Filou :-)
His favorite employment is in the forest walk and sniff, search in the water after hidden  treasures.


Where is my treasure ?





I used nature textures and some chipboards from Dusty Attic






Journalling theme Anything goes
behind the image invisible, because my handwriting isn't so good)

Filou on discovery tour in the forest in July 2013, 
he loves the secrets and fragance of forest
 and search in magic water!!



Happy crafting, Kerstin

Tim Holtz Tag May 2014

Hi crafty friends,
and again a premiere, my first tag by Tim Holtz Tags 2014 + A Vintage Journey Man

I've always not trust me, because I do not have the new products shown, as they are here in the European market is not yet available, usually only 2-3 months later.
But I'm of the opinion, ultimately does matter fact like to work with the quality products and have fun, regardless of whether they are already a few months longer on the market or brand new.

I'm a big fan of the nostalgic vintage style and therefore it is not without these great distress colors, or even embossing folders and much more. As I said, the shadow press folder are not yet arrived here, but I am always very impressed by the ideas and inspirations here and therefore I am today all my courage and enjoin the challenge!!





Why walking, have yet 4 healthy tyres ;-)


Ingredigents:

Embossing Folder Travel Signs Set + Blueprint & Gears
Cling stamps Travel Ways
Alcohol inks 
Distress Ink
Metal foil
Sizzix cutting stencil Gears




the car comes from a tyre driven out, which is a detail  of embossingfolder gears (cut out)









and a Star for all the good ideas, impressions and inspirations on Tim's Team






and for all, who dare to take part in fun at the joy on the challenges, although they still can not buy the products shown here

 therefore also for me ;-) :-)

sorry for my bad english,
hopefully that was not the biggest error of my life, but I must say it ;-)!

Hi friends,
a new theme by Fashionable Stamping Challenge Circle the globe

little boys dreaming of a wide world, they want to drive across the oceans 
and live adventures, that was my idea to this topic.   

Distant world, I'm coming

I've dreamt of it so often,
to stand upon your shore

(the text it's from a favourite song)

Enjoy the Moments 


I used an old wood frame, a stencil with bubbles, nautic stamps, chipboards

the background was also made with the stencil bubbles









Distant world, I’m coming
 Best wishes, Kerstin

It was made with modeling clay (air drying), texture paste, acrylic paint and vintaj patina.

Steampunk Passion


Hi friends,

I'm a big vintage shabby style fan and love the things that are old and nobody wants anymore.
Scuffed, worn, rusty things with patina . I like the shabby style, because you can do many things themselves
Of course you can also buy everything new, but where is the fun?
that's why I love working with the Distress products.



Tim Holtz Paint Marbling Technique Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge 1
  
 I recently discovered the steampunk style, inventive genius and adventurous romance are what makes Steampunk so very special and exciting to me.

                                           Steampunk Spells 




the technique can you find in the center of an old frame of wood
I used distress stain colors Black soot
Picket Fence, Antique bronze, Brushed pewter + Water



                          Picture frame border:  black cardstock + Embossing Folder Riveted Metal Set


                                                      Patina  copper + stickles silver + crackle paint



                                the pipe lines  are built himself, of what material, do you know???
                                      The solution will be come on the end of the next week :-)

SanDee & amelie's Steampunk May Challenge Heavy Metal

Hi Steampunkfriends,

my first DT Project for Sandee & Amelies Steampunk Challenge Heavy Metal 
and I'm very happy and proud! That's the right place for my romantic and crazy ideas. I like Steampunk, it's a new undiscovered world for me, but my style has always been more pretty and feminine.
But I also like to invent always new and so I will also often be good for a surprise ;-)

Aber ich erfinde mich auch gern immer wieder neu und deshalb werde ich auch öfter für eine Überraschung gut sein ;-)

Laßt euch von unserem DT überraschen und inspirieren,  dem Einfallsreichtum sind hier keine Grenzen gesetzt und entdeckt mit dem Steampunkgenre eure eigene neue Welt :-)!!

                                                Altered Box Thoughtful Lady


Passend zum Thema ist eine Altered Box entstanden, die schon ihren Platz auf dem Schreibtisch einer Freundin gefunden hat. Sie entstand aus einer einfachen stabilen Pappschachtel.
Der Hintergrund ist schwarzes Seidenpapier, zerknüllt, Reißverschluss eingenäht und mit Decoupagekleber auf dem Deckel der Schachtel befestigt. Farblich gestaltet mit Metallic Sprühfarben Silber und Kupfer und einer Masking Stencil (Zahnräder)


die nachdenkliche Lady ist ein Stempelmotiv von La Blanche, verziert mit zwei Glühbirnen (von einer defekten Weihnachtslichterkette ausgebaut ;-)) und mit einem Pappstreifen als Stütze im Hintergrund aufgeklebt.



                    die kupferne Metallfolie wurde mit den Sizzix Embossingfolder Gears geprägt










Heavy Metal wurde hier auch mit jeder Menge kleinen verspielten Charms umgesetzt und mit der Heißklebepistole befestigt, zum Schluß musste eine alte Modeschmuckkette auch noch dran glauben ;-)

Ich denke das Thema läßt einen sehr weiten Spielraum offen, von Charms, sämtlichen Metallfolien, aber auch Metallicfarben ist vieles möglich. Laßt eure Fantasie spielen und präsentiert uns eure Ideen, wir sind schon sehr gespannt und freuen uns auf eure Beiträge!!  

I think the theme can be a very wide leeway, of charms, all metal foils, as well as metallic colors, many things are possible. Let your imagination play and presents us your ideas, we are very curious and look forward to your contributions!

Thanks for stoppy by today and having a peek at my blog!


                 I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!
