Longing for the birds... 2

LOVE this design; it's so versatile, and very suitable for masculine themed projects too.

The background has been made with Nuance colours and the white accents with an acrylic marker. The extra color in the stamped images has been added with watercolour pencils.

Mini Album!

I am creating little notebooks lately to give away. LOVE doing that!  I've been into bookmaking for a long time now, especially restoring old books, giving them a new jacket for instance. ... and I still enjoy it, also because I can use these covers as a canvas :) ... It makes it a personal note book, and with the elastic band it looks so much more 'professional' ! Had to figure out how to do that pretty invisible on the insides of the covers. I think it turned out great. Not perfect, but hand-made should not be perfect, hehe

I've been playing with structure paste and stamping  (Magenta) ... and stencils and Coloration sprays from Art Anthology on these covers ! 

Hope you like it!!

A wolf... silence...

Crafter's Companion's wolf  :
A wolf.. . standing in the cold snow, while the sun is about to go down... silence ..

The first range is without the added blue... which one you like most? I love the white one, without the blue on the snow and in the sky most... 

See for yourself:

now for the ones with the added blue: 

Stamps / stencil are from Crafter's Companion !

Mini album

I want to use this album for some vintage photographs from my parents. 

It measures about 9 by 7,5 centimeters.


This background was used to adhere to the front and back cover of this mini-album. It's Colorations spray from Art Anthology over stenciled tructure paste.

The pages were made with recycled cardboard from the package of boxes müsli. 
By glueing them to each other after folding them, you get nice sturdy pages. 

I chose to add some script (Ellie Knol Designs) to the covers and inside pages. 

I am entering this booklet in the challenge on

Thema : wit/paars en 1 kleur naar keuze

Niet zo moeilijk.. ik vindt groen altijd mooi bij paars,; wist ook dat ik deze stempelset wilde gebruiken van Paper Artsy.. 
Ik wil graag meedoen met de challenge van Hobbycompleet De Duif

Chilly days...

Some of the leaves on the trees are still pleasing to our eyes, even now it's a bit more chilly!

I love this foliage stamp.. very useful for masculine type of cards as well! 

The background has been colored with a tiny bit of Nuance color, to picture the colder air during wintertime!
