Good time

Hello everyone,

Welcome to today's blogpost for Katzelkraft. I have made a postcard:

The base is a gel print on which I did some background stamping and embossing. The Jazz musician was stamped on book paper, cut out and adhered. I stamped the sentiment on the unprinted edge of the same book paper and cut it out. I then also glued this to the card. A doodle line along the edges finished it off. 

I have used :

This week at Vera Lane Studio

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday !

For today's Vera Lane Studio DT post I have made a trio of ATC's,  a postcard and an Art Journal page. The ATC's have been made with this week's release called 'Top of my Head'. Aren't they fun?

I had fun making these. I printed and coloured them and cut them out. I spend quite some time to find words that would go with them and used an old novel for this. I think it turned out quite well. The background are pieces of gel printed paper.

You'll find 'Top of my head' HERE

For the postcard I used the girl facing forward from last week's release 'Back to Back'. I added a flower to her hair and the background is made out of watercolour paper that was coloured with Distress Oxide Inks. I stencilled the flower over the top with white acrylic paint. I also added some stamping. 

You'll find the 'Back to back' digi's HERE

And last but not least:

I made a quick gel print and added some stamping. I coloured the houses first so I just used similar colours in the print. I added some Washi, placed the houses on top and added one of the sentiments of the set. 

You'll find 'Amsterdam' HERE

Hello everyone,

For today's AALL & Create project I have a mini book to share. I love making mini books and this time it is a Zine book. Not my idea, it has been done many times and I got the idea from the internet.

Here's how, scroll all the way down for the VIDEO

I folded and glued the book, then added two layers of gesso on each page. I then added acrylic paint and stencilled over the top. 

I stamped the flower on the front using a stamping tool.

I heat embossed the flower and coloured it with watercolour markers. Next I stamped the text randomly. 

I added stencilling on the inside, this time with Distress Oxide ink and water, using the stencil as a stamp.

I also added lines to write on and numbers on the pages.

And here it is.. 


I have used the following stamps:
#67 - Vintage Assorted 
#107 - Date it
#146 - Kings and Queens
#183 - Bouquet Small 
Stencil: #45

Get your happy on !

Hello everyone, 

For today's Katzelkraft post I have made a card. 

I started with stamping the flowers and white embossing them. I used watercolour paper. I then dunked the paper into Distress Oxide Inks that I smooshed on my workspace. When dry I added some stamping and doodling. I stamped the dog and the sentiment and coloured the dog. I used Copic Markers and pencils. I glued the sentiment on a piece of fabric and then onto the card panel. I placed the dog on the top. 

I used the following stamps:

This week at Vera Lane Studio

Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday to you !

For today's Vera Lane Studio DT projects I have made a postcard with this week's release called "Back to back" and a mini tag with an older image from the set "Sweets for my sweet".

How cute is she ! I placed her on a gel printed piece of paper, added some clouds from book paper and some washi tape. She was coloured with coloured pencils.  You'll find her HERE

This is an older image, she was coloured with Copics and some coloured pencils. She was placed on a piece of patterned paper, I just added some washi tape and a piece of stripy paper.

It's your time to bloom

Hi everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have made a card. I used a few different stamp sets and for the base I gelli printed a piece of paper. 

Here's how I made it:

I gelli printed the base, starting off with yellow and then adding more paint (orange and green) to the plate. I put the stencil on it and brayered over to get the pattern into the paint and then printed over the top of the yellow.

Here you can see the pattern. 

Next I stamped the Bouquet Small stamp with black Versafine Clair ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. 

I then used my Faber Castell Big Brush markers to add colour to the flower and the leaves. I also splattered some white paint over the top. 

Here's a close up.

Next I stamped the background with orange, green and black inks and doodled a line around the panel. 

The sentiment came from this set called 'Doodled Blooms', I stamped it, cut it out, matted it on black card stock, changed my mind and cut it off again, adhered it onto the panel and went around the words with a black pen. 

And there is is, mounted on a white card base. 

I have used the following stamps:
#134 - Dot matrix
#140 - Doodled Blooms
#146 - Kings and Queens
#183 - Bouquet Small

#49 - Rota Vitae
