Born to be wild

Hello everyone,

For my weekly Katzelkraft post I have made a mini journal page.

This was made on a piece of gelli printed paper. I added the white embossed swirls on the right and then stamped and coloured the cat. I did this on a piece of separate paper. I then cut him out and added him to the background. I then added the sentiment (not by Katzelkraft).

I used the following stamps:

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday to you !

For my Vera Lane Studio post today, I have used the brand-new Poe ! I think he is very dapper ! I made an art journal page using designer paper by Kaiserkraft. It is from an old collection called "Timeless":

I added some black paint with a pallet knife and then coloured Mr. Poe and his lamp. I also cut out two of the sentiments and a crow. After I'd done all that I assembled everything on my page, shuffled it around until I was happy with the result. 

You'll find Edgar HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Beware of dog

Hello everyone,

For today's post for Katzelkraft I have a postcard to share..

I used a piece of Designer paper and stamped it a little. I then added another strip of DP with hearts as a floor for them to stand on. Sidony and the rat were stamped, coloured and cut out. I adhered them to the card and added some shading to ground them. Lastly I doodled a line around the card and added a sentiment. 

I used the following stamps:

He was a dreamer

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my first post for 2018 for VivaLasVegaStamps!  I have made an art journal page:

It had been ages since I used model paste or crackle paste so today was the day to revisit this medium. I had forgotten how much fun it is ! 
Anyway I used an UmWow Studio stencil to add texture with crackle paste. I let it dry naturally because this particular one won't crackle when you use a heat tool. Ask me how I know! :o)
After it was dry I sprayed Lindys sprays in blues and greens over it, starting at the bottom and letting it run over the page to the top. Once I was happy I added some background stamping, not much because there is already a lot going on. The Whimsical Man was stamped on book text, coloured with pencils and cut out. I added a little room under him to be able to stamp the word dreamer after masking off the words 'she was a'. 
The same sentiment was stamped on a blank piece of book paper after masking off just the 's' from she so it says he. 
I adhered both to the page with dimensional tape and then added the page to my journal with Miracle Tape. 

I have used the following stamps/tape:

Don't say I didn't warn you !

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday !

I have a mini AJ page for Vera Lane Studio to share today....

This AJ page was made with a piece of a menu from a Fish restaurant which I gelli printed. I then printed and coloured the digital images and put it together. 
The sentiment was typed on my old trusty typewriter. 
I think it turned out really funny ! 

You will find the digital images I used here:

Stop thinking...

Hallo allemaal,
Hello everyone, 

Vandaag heb ik een Art Journal pagina om te laten zien. Ik heb deze gemaakt voor Hobbycompleet De Duif. 
Today I have an Art Journal page to show you. I made this for the DT of Hobbycompleet De Duif. 

De achtergrond is met de gelli plate gemaakt. Ik heb hiervoor rose, oranje en rode verf gebruikt van Amsterdam Acrylics. Natuurlijk kun je gebruiken wat je wilt. Voor de patroontjes in de achtergrond kun je ook van alles gebruiken. De cirkels aan de linkerkant bijvoorbeeld zijn gemaakt met een onderzetter van Ikea. Je kan ook stencils gebruiken en dopjes.... 
Ik heb de dame gestempeld met VersaMark en toen met embossing poeder bestrooid. Ik heb weer rose, oranje en rood gebruikt. 
De woorden zijn met zwarte Archival inkt gestempeld, uitgeknipt en opgeplakt. Ik ben nog wel even met een rose marker langs de randjes gegaan. 
Als laatste een zwart en een wit lijntje rondom getekend. 

I made the background with the gelli plate and Amsterdam Acrylics in orange, pink and red. I created some interest with a coaster from Ikea (circles on the left)  and some stencils. You can use anything from foam stamps, rubber stamps, bottle tops etc... 
When everything was dry I stamped the lady with VersaMark and heat embossed her with embossing powder again using orange, pink and red. 
The sentiment was stamped on white card stock, cut out and adhered. I did go around the strips with a pink marker. A black and white line around the edge finished it off. 


Leuk dat je er was ! 
Thanks for stopping by !
