All her dreams

Hello everyone,

Today, for my DT project for AALL & Create I have created a Mixed Media Mini canvas. It was so much fun to make. I used one of Fiona's little people for it and she looks fab !

And here's how:

I had wanted to use some corrugated cardboard on one of my projects for ages and today was the day! I used it to put little Juniper on. She's so cute ! 

First things first though.. I started with model paste and a stencil. This one was designed by Autour de Mwa and it is great. You can use the whole thing or just a little bit like I did. 

When the model paste had dried I coloured the canvas with spray inks. I used Lindys Stampgang sprays because I happed to really like those but you can use other inks too. 
I did mess about with it for a little while after I took this photo because I thought it was too green. 

After I was happy with the colour I splattered white paint on it. Next I painted the piece of cardboard with white gesso and stamped part of stamp #80 on it using Distress Oxide ink 'Peacock Feathers. I also went around the edges of the card board. Later on I added some more stamping with the same stamp and black Archival ink... 

I then coloured little Juniper. She will be wearing a nice turquoise frock and a pink necklace. 

Here she is all dressed and ready to go. 

I glued her onto the card board piece and gave her a bow in her hair made from Sari ribbon. I added atwo text stickers by Tim Holtz. I thought these two went really wel together. And there you have it !

Be Happy

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for Katzelkraft today !

Every now and then I like to make a CaS card. I think it is really difficult to not add anything like paints and model paste to my work so making something CaS is a bit of a challenge.

For this clean and simple card I cut a panel a little smaller than the card. I stamped the cow and part of one of the sentiment. I then coloured the cow with Copic markers also adding some shading under it's feet. Next I glued the panel on a white card. 
That was it ! 

I used the following stamps:

A doggie postcard, a girlie card and a video !

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blogpost for Vera Lane Studio.

When you read this I will be on holiday for a few days. Hopefully the weather will be kind !

For this week I have made a postcard and a card. I have also made a YouTube tutorial for the card.

This set came out this week and is called "Stick pups". How cute are they ! I printed them in this group on a piece of gelli printed paper and also on white card stock. I coloured the ones on the white card stock and cut them out. I then adhered the pieces to the dogs on the card. The border is from an envelope that was sent to me by my teammie Sylvia with an ATC inside. Loved the paper and couldn't throw it out. 

You'll find these pups HERE

Next I have a card :

I love how this turned out. On watercolour paper I used a large background stamp and heat embossed it with white WOW embossing powder. I then dipped it into Distress Oxide inks 'Faded Jeans' and 'Seedless Preserves'. I love how the image in the background stands out. Next I printed the girl and sentiment from the set "that girl" and coloured her with Copics, cut her out and adhered her with the sentiment. I then adhered the panel onto a white card. 

You can watch me do it HERE

Or go to YouTube :

You can find "That girl" HERE.

Positive vibes

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog where today I have a triptych to show you that I have made with the mad Llama stamp from AALL & Create ! He is so much fun !

Here it is and here is how I made it :

I started off with colouring the Llama three times. I stamped him on Neenah card stock which is ideal for Copics. There is a stamp of a tiny pair of glasses in the set and I stamped it over his eyes. 

Here they are all ready ! I did use some coloured pencil over the bodies as I couldn't seem to get the colour right with  just my Copics. Maybe I have not enough of them... lol 

Here you can see the pieces of grey board I cut with my craft knife/scissors for the triptych. 

A layer of gesso and some collage with book pages and they are ready to go ! 

I chose paints in the same colours as the Llamas' hair. I did add a darker shade of each afterwards...

Here is how that is looking. Next I am stamping and stencilling the background. 
So, I got very carried away and forgot to snap any more photos... sorry

This is the blue Llama. 

the pink....

and lastly, the green. 
I think it came out super cute. The stencilling I did was on the back, you can see it in the photo at the bottom. 

If you are interested in the stamps and stencils, please visit : 


you'll find a list of stockists worldwide. 

I used the following stamps:

#102 - Positive vibes
#71 - Natures garden
#92 - Brinley (just the sentiment)
#56 - Vintage Grafitti 
#28 stencil

The adventure begins

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my weekly Katzelkraft blogpost. Today I made an art journal page. I love art journaling.. even though I don't really 'journal'.

I love the expression on the dog's face. It looks like he's saying "are you out of your mind ?", lol
I used Distress Oxides for the background and then stamped it a little. Next I stamped the sentiment using my stamping platform. I wanted to make sure I got a good impression. 
The animals and table were stamped separately and coloured with Copic markers, cut out and adhered to the page. I did stamp the table and the rabbit on the page too, to get all the little details.

Anyway, I have also filmed the process :

I have used the following stamps:

A journalpage, an ATC and a postcard !

Hello everyone,

and Happy Thursday to you !

For today's Vera Lane Studio post I have made three projects, a journal page, an ATC for this months swap and a postcard.
As you might know Sharon is hosting this month and her theme is "TV". I do not watch a lot of TV but I did do when I was younger, much younger... lol
That is why I chose Mr. Ed as a subject for my ATC for this month. I used to love watching it when I was little.

This AJ page is made with yet another gel printed background. I added some white and black stencilling to give it a little more interest. I also added washi tape and a doodle line along the edges. The girl was coloured with Copic Markers, as were the flowers. The sentiment is from the same set. 

You will find it HERE.

This is my ATC for the swap this month. I used a piece of gel printed paper that was in my stash, added some washi tape and then resized and printed the horse from the Farm Animal set #1. I added the glasses from the Ester-Jean set. I then coloured him, cut him out and glued him to the ATC. The sentiment (from the series) was typed,  cut out and glued on the card too. 

You'll find the Farm Animals HERE

This one is a postcard and I tried to depict the X-files. lol, not sure I succeeded... The background is pattern paper on which I put some paint. The images were printed, coloured and cut out. I typed the sentiment on my old trusty typewriter. 
I used the girl's (Scully)head from the 'Journal Faces'
You'll find it HERE

The boys (Mulder) head of from 'Stripes and Bow Ties'
You'll find it HERE

The Alien is from the 'Lost in Space' set
You'll find it HERE
