Card with a Bird - DT project for Country View Challenges

Hello everybody, nice to have you here today!
As usual at the first of each month we have a brand new challenge at Country View Challenges for you. This time the theme is "Things with wings"  chosen by my lovely team mate Jane - what a great theme with so many possibilities!
It´s the first of July and the summer is in full flow. And what do you hear first when you wake up in the morning? Twittering birds!
So I made a little quick and easy card with one of the super cute Scribbly Small Birdies stamps from Dina Wakley - I love them!


Hallo zusammen, schön, dass ihr heute bei mir vorbeischaut!
Wie an jedem ersten des Monats haben wir auch dieses Mal wieder eine brandneue Herausforderung bei Country View Challenges für euch. Diesmal lautet das Thema "Alles was Flügel hat" - was für ein tolles Thema mit unglaublich vielen Möglichkeiten!
Es ist der erste Juli und der Sommer ist in vollem Gange. Was hörst du, wenn du morgens aufwachst als erstes? Vogelgezwitscher!
Ich habe deshalb eine einfache und schnelle Karte mit einem der super süßen Scribbly Small Birdies Stempeln von Dina Wakley gemacht - ich liebe diese Stempel!


Here is what I did:
So habe ich´s gemacht:

 I stamped one of the birds on a mixed media paper with staz on in Jet black and colored him with my Inktense pencils and activated them with water.
Zuerst habe ich einen der putzigen Vögelchen auf Mixed Media Papier gestempelt (StazOn Jet Black) und ihn mit meinen Inktense Stiften ausgemalt, die ich dann mit Wasser aktiviert habe.

 I clear embossed the bird  to protect it.
Danach habe ich den Vogel zum Schutz klar embossed.

 Now I stamped some grass from the stamp set Portraits from Creative Expressions.
Die Gräser von dem Stempelset Portraits von Creative Expressions habe ich als Hintergrund gestempelt.

 Some doodling with my black Pitt Pen from Faber Castell brings more interest.
Mit meinem Pitt Pen von Faber Castell habe ich ein paar Linien gekritzelt um alles etwas lebendiger zu gestalten.

 Now I colored the background with Distress Oxides in broken china and peeled paint, which I watered down for a light finish.
Den Hintergrund habe ich mit sehr wässrigen Distress Oxides coloriert um ihn möglichst hell zu halten.

 I distressed the edges with Archival ink leaf green and also surrounded the bird and the wordsticker from Tim Holtz with it. At last I did some more doodling and - ready!
Die Ränder habe ich mit Archival Ink leaf green eingefärbt, damit habe ich auch den Vogel und die Wortsticker von Tim Holtz umrandet. Zum Schluss noch ein wenig Doodling und - fertig!


Now I hope you´ll find time to join in with our challenge this month! You can win a 20£ voucher for the shop!
Thank you for dropping in!

Nun hoffe ich, ihr findet Zeit bei unserer Herausforderung diesen Monat mitzumachen! Ihr könnt einen 20£ Gutschein für den Shop gewinnen!
Danke fürs Reinschauen!

Altered Heart Hanger - DT project for Country View Challenges

Hello all, nice to have you here today!
Fresh back from holidays I want to share with you my second project for the June challenge "Hearts" at Country View Challenges.
I bought this white painted wooden heart at a Dollar store some time ago and decided to alter it a 
little bit.




First I painted the heart with deco art media fluid acylics in magenta - but it turned out too colorful. So I took some pearl iridicent acrylic paint to tone it down.


It belongs to the light, how the color shimmers - sometimes more pinkish, sometimes more golden. I like the effect very much!

To alter the heart more, I used the little wooden pieces you find in every canvas package. I painted the wood with DecoArt media fluid acrylics.

I glued the pieces on top of the heart and added some mica flaces and gold glitter strips from 13@rts.

The paper doily I toned down with DI antique line.

Now I put everything together. A vintage photo from finnabair, two tags from some clothes I bought, a string, fibres and flowers. The flowers I painted here and there with some iridicent paint. To add a little bit more gold, I glued down a golden brad.
At last I glued down a bow as a hanger.

Here you can see the back of the heart.

......and some close ups.




Now I hope, you´ll find time to join in with our challenge this month, as always you have the chance to win a 20£ voucher for the shop!

Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful sunny and hot weekend.

Travelling Art Journal, #4 - DT Project for Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies!
This is my third post today - a new double spread in one of the Travelling Art Journals we make for Canvas Corp Brands.
This time I went a little funny =)


This is what I did:
 I took a page of the CCB mix & match pad Spring Showers, cut out some umbrellas and the gorgeous sentiment.

 Next I used the 7gypsies Maritime paper pad and glued the torne paper to the pages.
 For some texture I added some stripes of the 7gypsies global paper tape.
 The umbrellas were colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in several colors (you´ll find them listed in the post from Canvas Corp Brands). Then I painted the funny little girl and colored her with glimmer mists and some inktense pencils. I made some "watersplatters" with hot glue, which I covered with metalic wax in silver. Some shading and doodling here and there and the page was ready.



I hope you enjoy my page and don´t miss the gorgeous entries of my team mates too! You only have to hop over to the CCB blog.

Thank you for dropping in here today.

Altered stand - DT work for ARTastic

Hello all,
for my second post today I want to show you my take on the ARTastic June challenge. This time I made an altered stand.
The beautiful picture for inspiration this month is from Ethel Spowers - The Kite and the
CRITERIA - VINTAGE style OR featuring CHILDREN (or for an extra challenge combine both).
Well, I combinde both and the muted colors are good for some extra inspiration =).
Kein automatischer Alternativtext verfügbar.

This is what I did:


I bought this little stand in a dollar store. It was a little bit broken and I only payed 0,10€, what means nearly nothing!


I sanded the broken edges and painted them with white acrylic paint. Then I only covered the whole piece with some iridecent pearl acrylic paint in green/gold from pentart - it gives an amazing shimmer! Then I added some Lasur gel to tone it down a little bit and to add a vintage look. 
For the decoration I matted a vintage picture and framed it. I glued down some small branches, some chipboards, fibres, moss and small flowers for embellishing - that´s all!
I hope, you like it as much as I do =)



I´m looking forward to seeing your beautiful creations for our challenge over at ARTastic challenges this month! There is also a prize to win, so don´t miss joining in with!

Card with Hearts - DT-project for Country View June Challenge!

Hello my friends, I hope you´re all doing well!
The first project for our new challenge at Country View Challenges with the theme "Hearts" I made this card. 

Hallo ihr Lieben, ich hoffe es geht euch gut!


I covered a white card with some elder Magnolia paper and rounded the edges with a punching tool.
Ich habe eine weiße Karte mit einem älteren Magnolia Papier beklebt und die Ecken mit einem Stanzer abgerundet.
 Now I drew a smaller and a bigger heart (fold the paper and draw only a half one then cut it out) and used it as a stencil .
I habe zwei unterschiedlich große Herzen aufgezeichnet (Papier falten, halbes Herz aufzeichnen und ausschneiden) und diese dann als Schablone benutzt.

 The edges I distressed with DI walnut stain to make them stand out a little bit more.
Die Ränder habe ich mit DI walnut stain eingefärbt für mehr Kontrast.
 Now I glued all the hearts down.....
Danach alle Herzen aufkleben.....
 add a focal point and a stamped sentiment and decorate with some embellishments - ready!
einen Mittelpunkt und einen gestempelten Spruch aufkleben und mit ein paar Blumen und Schmetterlingen dekorieren - Fertig!
Here are some close ups:
Hier noch ein paar Nahaufnahmen:
