SPA Unicorns

Hello again, 

A new week a new theme by SPA and it's Unicorns!

Yes, another gelli print background, it's a lot of fun to find suitable prints and it might be a bit hard to see, but this background has some shimmer in it, it's done with alcohol inks and a stencil and a bit of silver alcohol ink added to it gives an amazing result!

Thanks for stopping by!

SPA Tears of a Clown

This weeks SPA challenge was hosted by Sue, you can find her Instagram here

I'm kind of loving the gelli plate backgrounds, added some stitching to the strips and called it done! No doodling or stamping this time, because I thought the background is "busy" enough on its own!

The tears are hand drawn and I added some glossy accents. Because the tears are hard to see on the card I did a detailed picture of them

SPA challenge KLIMT


A new SPA challenge by Rosie, theme is KLIMT! Gustave Klimt was an Austrian painter of whom I had never heard of before this prompt. I found an image I liked, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, printed it and made a background out of gelli-prints on which I stamped and doodled a bit and totally love how it turned out!

I now realize I took the prompt wrong the wrong way... it had to be inspired by Klimt's work.... I kind of did my own thing with the background, so it's not really like it's supposed to be :(

SPA Children

Hi there! 
A long over due post, finally, I sometimes even forget I have a blog still... 

Anyway, I thought why not start to play along with the SPA challenges again, used to love those and yes, I still do!

This weeks prompt was chosen by Amy and it's Children, so I grabbed my stash of Tim Holtz paper dolls and found one as you can see. 
The background is made out of gelli prints, I stamped a bit here and there and also got my sewing machine out, trick I learned from Kate Crane

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate comments!

Journal Soup 1

Sometimes, I'm so very late to the party ;) so, when I started picking up art journaling again, I decided it was time to start following the Journal Soup classes by Kate Crane! 
And I'm so glad I did this cause I have learned so much and have had tons of fun working on these pages! 
If you're interested in these classes, you can find them on Etsy, click here to go directly to Kate's store!!

These are the 6 pages I did for the first Journal Soup!

I also wanted a "cover page" for my box, so I made this page!

Fun with paint and stamps! 

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment!!

Junk journal pages

Slowly some orders are coming in from Simon Says Stamp, so happy I found the Skittles and Kooky Cats and more designed by Kate Crane in their store!! 

Perfect for making some pages in my Junk Journal, and I finally found a great way to color them, using my watercolor pencils and a water brush! Yay!

Skittels! Love this one with the crown!! 

And how cute is this Kooky Cat?? I know right? Awesome! Love the non matching colors in this one, for some reason it works great together.... 

Thanks for stopping by!!
