My Beauties ~ Last Layout ~ for ***ScrapAndMe***!

    Hello creative friends, 

Although it makes me a little sad that this is my final layout as a DT member of ScrapAndMe, I am also glad that I could make some space for other talent. Anna thank you so much for having me on your design team I really enjoyed working with your gorgeous papers & I will still be using them on my creative journey. Your are such a sweet, generous & lovely person with tons of patiënts. But for now I have look after my health & other family things. For this layout I used one of my favorite paperlines called "Beauties" most of those flowers are my favorite kind in real life. 

My Beauties: 

For my layout I used a picture of Kevin & Abbey a couple of months after she was born back in 2019. This picture really shows the love between siblings then and now they are inseparable even with such a age difference of 14 years. Kevin will turn 18 within two weeks and Abbey is the one that can't wait to celebrate it even more then Kevin does.

Thank you so much for all the support you have given me the last year and a half by all the comments on the socials & on the blog as well. I really appriciate every single one them.

Forever Treasure this Day heart canvas for ***2Crafty Chipboard***

 Hello fellow creative souls, 

I am so excited that you are here with me today as I bring you some new inspiration. For this occasion I created a heart canvas for my co-worker. Her daughter went to Curaçao with her aunt & grandmother last August and her dream came true which was swimming with the dolphins. She & I just really love the pictures they took so she asked me if I could make something for her so I did. 

Forever Treasure This Day: 

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Esther Vine
Fishingnet Bits
Mini Word Set 1 
Mini Word Set 2
Palm Leaves Set
Mini Word Set 3 
Seaweed Set
Seagrass Set
Seashell Set 

The background that I created here took a couple of days since I love it when it dries & crackles naturally. I also used a couple of stencils on my background and some sprays and waxes.

All the chipoard pieces are treated with either acrylic paint, spray paint, rust paste and waxes. I really love the effect that paste makes on the chippies in the end I added some wishing bubbles & art stones. 

Sure hope you like my canvasses as much as I love making them. 
Stay happy & creative much

Sweet Love Thank you for being Mine canvas for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!!!

 Goodmorning sweet creative friends, 

Happy 2023 to you all, I hope you had a lovely New Years eve here it was rainy with lots of pretty fire works but I was in bed by 12:15 lol since my husband & kids all have the flue they were not in a festive mood. Since we now have Valentines day approaching I created a canvas with my husband as the center pieces well him kissing me that is. This year in April we will be celebrating our being together for 25 years. So you will see some more works of me in honour of that. 

Sweet Love Thank you for being Mine: 

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Berry Branch 
Festive Vine
Frame Handrawn Hearts 

All the pretty 2Crafty chipboard pieces are firstly treated with a layer white gesso. After that I added two layers of aqua embossing powders and one layer of pure white embossing powder on the berry branch & festive vine. BTW don't you just love the new collection by Prima Marketing called  "Aquarelle Dreams" you will see lot's more of that frome me for sure. 

On the berry branch I added less white embossing powder then I did on the festive vine since I wanted them to look slightly diffenrent from each other. In the end I added some crystal drops on the circles to give them more demension en also some white matte wax. The heart frame was painted with two different types of acrylic paint the first with a shiny finish and the second one with a matte finish. 

Sure hope you like my canvasses as much as I love making them. 
Stay happy & creative much

 Hello sweet crafty friends, 

It's the 8th of the month and that means another challenge over at the ScrapAndMe blog. This time it's the #100 challenge and that means it's a "Anything Goes"! With that being said I made a 12 by 12 layout using the pretty NEW "Dream a Little" collection. For this layout I used a picture of nieces Merel & Mijntje at a photoshoot a while back. 

Happy Memories to Remember: 

I did some stenciling & layering the background. The leaves I made them look like the are bold if you know what I mean. The frame around the picture is also handmade with the papers and my sewing machine.
