DT Scraps of Darkness - Ideas Matter

Welcome friends!

My next project with our awesomeScraps of Darkness May Kit 'Attic finds',
I was inspired to make a new (old) shadox box.
 Unfortunately I havn't such box in my stuff, but I saw this great background paper 'Upper & Lover' from 7 gypsies in our May Kit 'Attic Finds' and thought it looks like amazing and I will try this.
 I took an old canvas and use the backside as wooden frame.
With some acrylic paints (gold, black and brown) and a crackle paste, which I used only on some places I created a frame in altered art.

 the new stickers from the Architextures collection are very cool, it's very easy to work with it, you can cut, you can colored and they are self - adhesive
I added three books and the iron gates and not to forget this amazing lamp, she was glued with two chipboards and it's hanging from the frame for a 3D effect

brushes are a chipboard from my stuff, I colored with some acrylic paints
 and used a copper embossing powder

 yes and such a cool door handle was the perfect addition for my art room frame

I cut out some words from the paper Architextures 'Market signs' 
the 'Idea' piece were distressed and wrinkled, it adds more dimension on this altered frame

to complete the look I also added some alphabet tiles from our last month kit
and the wonderful new paper dolls from Tim Holtz
which were a birthday gift 
from a very good friend

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

GD A Vintage Journey - Canvas

Hi everyone!

 I was so pleased and honoured to be asked once again
to join you all as a Guest Creative Guide here at
 A Vintage Journey

This month the challenge theme is "Canvas", what a wide field on creative possibilities. 
I decided to make a canvas in industrial grunge style.

I created the background with a photo from an old magazine, 
some rusty colors, stamps and a brick stencil.
 I used some products from DecoArt - Matte Medium, texture paste, fluid acrylics.

the new puffy stickers were a birthday gift and  I immediately had to try out
 it was a great fun, because you can cut this pieces very easily
and you can build your own piping system

 chipboards were embossed with my favourite powder from Emerald Creek Dares 
'Burnt Copper Leaves' I love this mixture black/ copper metallic look

Many thanks for your visit!
Have a nice crafting time!

DT Scrap FX It's all good


today a new inspiration layout with some various products from
Scrap FX,
 a mix from stamps, chipboards and transparency sayings.
IT's summertime here, time for relaxations, sun and sea.
In memory on a beautiful time by the sea
I have created this maritime layout with a touch of vintage feeling suitable to the saying

- She was (is) :-) a modern girl with a vintage soul -

used Scrap Fx products

I colored the frame with white and a little bit blue acrylic paint
the altered lighthouse was a die, which I used with textured paper
 and a little bit distress vintage paint

I added the flourish to the frame, so it looks like a sea wave

I also love such marble effects, here started with blue acrylic paint, then on some place white embossing powder and finally some dark acrylic paint over the embossing areas 

I often use this 'Burnt Copper Leaves' Embossing powder from Emerald Dare Creek, 
it's so great,
because you have copper metallic particle as well as additionel
black shares in one powder

the film stripe is always a wonderful addition for all scrapbook layouts,
 it fits to everything, no matter what style
you prefer

Many thanks for your visit!
I hope you like my inspiration!

If you will see more mixed media ideas,
maybe a fantasy rusty canvas 
with this amazing Steampunk Seahorse
from Scrap FX

See you later!

DT Scraps of Darkness - A true gentleman


Kerstin here and my first inspiration for our May Kit.

My father - a true gentleman 
As I saw the new month theme at More than words Father & Steampunk
I thought yes, that's the right inspiration for a vintage travel layout with a touch of steampunk.
I love this combination!

an amazing kit with the new collection 'Architextures' from 7gypsies, Canvas corp brands.

If you have a slightly older car with a few macken it's always very good to have a good man who is familiar with cars. My father has always an open ear for it and is very helpful.

Have you seen the new findings and treasures from the 7 gypsies Architextures collection?

I used a background paper from this Architexture collection and a frame from the paper 'Art Wall'. 
I cut the inner part and added a funny old photo.

the thicker alphabet stickers are very diversified and very suitable to this style

this vintage car is a stamp, which was cut out

I used the tiles and I have divided the suitcases.
 There are really great and looks like original attics finds. 
It adds so much dimension to this layout.

the stains and splatters were made with this new 'Splatter' stencil from Kaisercraft
they are perfect for an altered look

 Thanks a million Dad!


Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

Delicate colours


and I'm back with a new layout for our DT Scrap FX.
Today in a very romantic style with a adorable photo,
 which remember me on wonderful days in my childhood, as I visit my grandparents.
 It was springtime and I'm a big lover of springtime flowers,
so I was pleased 
as I saw this awesome Magnolia branch chipboard.

 I used chalkboard paints for a fine romantic character
 and added some little pearls in the centre for a 3D effect

The new stamps looks like lace, very filigran and delicate 
They can be used as frame, border or for the edge design.

Finally I added spray and splatters also to the black card phrase, 
so fits visually better into the whole spring layout design.

I want to share this springtime and motherday layout

 I used a background paper from the 'En Francais Collection'
and elements from the new 'Love clipping collection'

Many thanks for your visit!
Have a nice time!
