Lifebook 2015 week 15 with Tamara Laporte

Lifebook 2015 time again!!

Hi all! :)

Week 15 of Lifebook: It's the little things with Tamara Laporte
I am a little bit behind with lifebook but here's another lesson I did and....... it was way out of my comfort zone ;)

This is the end result, not completely happy with it but I had fun creating it.

Some detail pictures

 And some work in progress pictures when I was thinking to myself.........

"this is so NOT going to be okay" LOL, But in the end I am happy with it, I had fun and I tried something new again :)


Serenity Art Journal Pagina

Today I have an art journal page to share with you

I started with a gelli print I made the other day and used it for this page's background. Then I added an extra layer by using stencils and after that some Tim Holtz washi tape (the red numbers) and another piece of black & white washi tape ( I don't remember which brand it is or where it's coming from).

The stamps I used are from Lost Coast designs:
Rustic Checkerboard border
Serentity Diva

I finished this "masterpiece" by adding some white cirkels with acryllic paint and an old lid from "something".

Thanks for watching and have a great day!

New Round Gelli plate

Last week I got myself the new round gelli plates at De Craftorij shop. I bought the 4 & 6 inch and I started playing with them. I must say I LOVE them!!!

I already had the bigger round 8 Inch one so I started off with that one and made some big circles first. I think you can see it best at the first picture below.

After making circles with the 8"Gelliplate I started working with the 6" plate and  after that the 4" one.

I used some funny color combinations, the ones I probably wouldn't use together normally but I must say I like the overall result.

The page I made is about 9 x12 inch. Not sure what I am going to do with it but it will probably become a background for an Art Journal page or something like that.

Colorful Butterfly

There's a new Challenge blog for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda. Please join the new blog for monthly challenges, you will have twice the inspiration and double the fun!

As an example for the first challenge I made this card with 2 new stamps by Lost Coast designs. I used the lovely Butterfly face as a focal point and for the  background I stamped and embossed the Grunge Window Wall stamp.

The bright colours you see are made with Distress Stains and I embossed the background stamp with purple embossing powder.(which is unfortunately a bit hard to see on the pictures).

I finished with some white acryllic paint spatters.
Thanks again for watching :)

Stampotique Challenge SDC 194 - Stencils

For Corrie's challenge this week, "using stencils", I created this card using a stencil underneath the hearts I stamped with France Papillon's small Heart stamp

I also added France's text stamp on a seperate label with a tiny attacher. 

The card has a "future" date as it is also meant as an example for a summer challenge we are having soon.
