April Showers

Hello everyone,

Today, for Katzelkraft, I have a small art journal page to share.

I painted the page with blue paint and then overpainted it with white to make it lighter. I then stamped and stencilled the page. The girl was stamped directly on the page and also on white card stock. I coloured the one on the card stock and cut her out. I then glued her onto the one on the page. That way you don't have to cut out every detail like the umbrella handle for instance. 
The sentiment was stamped with letter stamps. 

I have used the following stamps: 
KTZ130 - Mini Background
KTZ131- Mini Background

Thank you for stopping by today !

Buy a Hyacinth..

Hello everyone,

and happy Thursday to you all. For today's Vera Lane Studio inspiration I have made two postcards. One with this weeks release of Hyacinth and one with an older set called the Gardener.

How cute is she ?? I used one of my "Copic Refill" gelli prints for the background and just added a postage stamp and some pattern paper along the bottom. She was coloured with Copic Markers  and a little pencil for the darkest shading in the flowers because I didn't have a dark purple marker. The sentiment is from the same set and was glued on and doodled around with a graphite pencil. 

You will find Hyacinth HERE.

This is one of my favourite Vera Lane Studio Gals. She is called the Gardener and is an older set. I coloured her with Copic Markers and added a little flower to her hair. The sentiment is from the same set. 
The background is yet another gelli print and I just added some washitape and graphite pencil doodling. 

You will find her HERE

We are all a little bit mad here

Hello everyone,
Hallo allemaal,

Today I have made an Artjournal page for Hobbycompleet de Duif. They have started carrying the AAL & Create line and we are all doing something with these fabulous stamps.

Voor vandaag heb ik een art journal pagina gemaakt voor Hobbycompleet de Duif met de hun nieuwe lijn nl. AAL & Create. Het hele DT team maakt voorbeelden met deze fantastische stempels.

For this AJ page I have used a gelli print from my stash. It was made with the 8 x 10 plate and Amsterdam Acrylics and some stencils. Next I stamped the balloons on the print by just inking up that bit of the stamp with the girl. I also stamped them on white card stock. Next I stamped the girl on the page and on white card stock. I also stamped her one more time with Picked Raspbery Distress Oxide ink so I could cut out her dress and give her a pink one instead of the black. The image was then coloured together with all the balloons and cut out. I added some shading to the dress on the image that was stamped with the Oxide ink and cut it out. I adhered it on the colours image.  I then adhered all the balloons and the sentiment. 

Deze pagina is gemaakt met een gelli print uit mijn 'voorraad'. Ik heb de 8 x 10 plate gebruikt samen met de Amsterdam Acrylics en wat stencils. Ik heb hierop te ballonnen gestempeld (alleen dat gedeelte van de stempel van het meisje gebruikt) en ook de gehele stempel. Ik heb daarna alles ook op wit card stock gestempeld. Omdat ik wilde dat het meisje een rose jurkje zou dragen heb ik haar ook nog een keer in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inkt gestempeld. Op de jurk daarna wat schaduw aangebracht en het jurkje uitgeknipt en op de andere afdruk geplakt en de rest ingekleurd met Copics inclusief alle ballonnen. Daarna alles op de gelli print geplakt. 

Ik heb de volgende materialen gebruikt: 
AALL& Create stempels
BG11 - BG53 - RV52 - RV63 - RV09
BG02 - BG05 - E51 - E53 - E31

Thank you for stopping by today ! 

Leuk dat je er was !

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second project for the April Challenge that is "Pimp it up" over at Country View Challenges. I decided on using a piece of a card board box to make a tag.

After I cut the tag (Using a knife and a hole punch) I stripped off some of the paper so the corrugation became visible. I filmed everything after that. 

Why not play along with us ! You might just win a voucher for the shop ! 

Thank you for stopping by today !

Pretend it's a plan !

Hello everyone,

I had loads of fun today, making this art journal page for Katzelkraft. It made me chuckle...

I like putting some humor into my projects and I think I succeeded this time... lol 
Anyway, this is a gelli printed background on which I stamped some script and did some doodling. I also stamped the bottom rat and the cat on the page. 
Next I stamped everything on white card stock. I masked the umbrella after stamping it so it looks like the rat is sitting in it. He doesn't look very happy, does he ? lol 
Next I coloured the images with my Copic Markers and cut them out. I drew a line along the top so I could 'hang' the umbrella on it. I adhered the images to the page and added some shading underneath the rat and the cat on the ground. Lastly I drew a white line along the edges and added the sentiment. This is made out of 2 Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers. 

I have used the following stamps:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Be in full bloom

Hello everyone,

and happy Thursday to you !

For today's Vera Lane Studio inspiration I have made an art journal page with the latest release, the Fleur Fairies and a postcard with an oldie but goodie... Ester Jean.

This page was made with a gelli print (what else?) lol. 
I added the dictionary words and some washi tape. I resized and printed the fleur Fairies and coloured them with my Copic Markers. I then cut them out and adhered them to my page together with a sentiment. 

You will find this set HERE

This postcard came about when I kept finding Ester Jean. I coloured her last year on holiday and i kept wanting to use her but didn't have a background that I thought fitted her. When I had a gelli printing session last week, with a friend and this print came out, Ester Jean was the first image that came to mind to use with it. So that is what I did. I added a little stamping on the left and some silver sparkly washi tape. 

You will find Ester Jean HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today ! See you next Thursday !
