Vintage * Winter * The bus

After doing a lot of layouts and other projects in advance for wijDUS, I had time to do something for myself! Not that what I make for wijDUS is not for myself..... but.... well, it is not something that "has to be done".
For the sketch for this month I used pictures of Henk and Marloes playing a ice-hockey game last year and I had one left, so..... I found a printout of a layout I had seen somewhere in blogland, and used it as an idea for this layout!


I actually love how it turned out, different layers, all distressed, torn up and inked with Ranger Distress ink Peeled Paint, which gives it really a kind of "older" look.

I got to play with my hotfix, and finally used a lot of bling, at least, for me it's a lot! (the close-up of the rhinestones is kind of blurry......too bad!)

And I used some of my embroidery floss I have laying around for ages, to wrap around the photo and paper... and I think it looks great!

As I said in my last post, you are probably going to see more ATC's... and I couldn't help it, here is the next set! This is really fun to do, all I need now is to win the lottery and buy myself a lot of cute stamps!! (I glued Basic Grey Blitzen to cards, put some Gesso over it, stamped snowflakes, an old poststamp and the words with Ranger Distress ink Faded Jeans)

This photo was laying here, I guess just waiting for the right time and the right paper!

And I found it! Ordered it for something totally different but didn't have enough, and it was just not the perfect color.... so...... I finally used it!


The picture is from our trip to Holland last year, and as you can read in the journaling, the only way of transportation was the city bus....... My cousin made this picture during one of those bustrips.. Can you see the "happy faces?" (papers and "scary monsters" are from October Afternoon, Night Light)

A more detailed picture of the journaling.......

I really like how the my team layout turned out. The combination of the ink, the blues, and the paisley print is absolutely wonderful.
