I want to ride my bicycle

A layout that reminds me on sunnier days in Hamburg 😉 Yes yes…I know …we Hamburgers love to talk about the weather- but hey…it is EXTREME – LOL. The funny thing is…the TRUE Hamburger rides his/her bike at any weather…and I do only take it out when the weather is absolutely fab. Which means…this year my bike is having a sad sad time in the cellar 😉

This Layout was part of my article about the Crafter’s Workshop Templates in the Summer issue of the ScrapArtZine.

I had layered Julie’s amazing star stencil sveral times using acrylic paints.

Supplies: Crafter’s Workshop Template Layered Stars, Studio Calico Die Cut Papier Blue Bracket und Love Bird,Fancy Pants Windy Day, Pink Paislee Chipboard Tiles, Pink Paislee Ephemera Die Cuts, Prima Songbird Alpha Sheet, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L MyStik und 3D Foam Pads, Liquitex Heavy Acrylic Paint


How about you? Do you like riding your bicycle?

Heidi Swapp Memory Files – Travel Art Album

Can you imagine how stoked I was, that Heidi Swapp featured my Travel Art Album I made with her amazing new Memory Files for the ScrapArtZine Spring Issue? Between you and me…I actually almost fainted when she sent me the email asking for the pictures for her website… – and I almost fainted again when I read her sweet words about the album. I mean…Heidi..one of my idols when I started with this whole journey…

I love her products and ….shhh….I once bought an insane amount of her Heidi Swapp Chipboard Letters …ahem…and I mean INSANE – I have a whole drawer full in all colors and if you look at my projects you see them actually quite often 😉

As Heidi mentions, our style is totally different and yet- I love her collection – it makes it so easy to work with, is timeless and amazingly adjustable to any style.

You can read how I made the album on Heidi’s Website- I just show you the pictures- you actually might spot some pictures of our awesome California Roadtrip in January if you saw my photos back then.

So fun – I love those Memory Files and definitely will work more with them 🙂

What kind of project/theme would you use them for?

Apparently he likes to sit on everything that takes attention from him. My projects, my studio, my kindle, my books and so on….LOL. I think this is a message….Well I know he likes to have me around so that he can ignore me 😉

Have a fun day!

Homedecor Canvas

Lately I have been playing on bigger Canvases – love it – giving me so much more room to play with texture…only…where to put it- LOL. The Canvas was part of an article I wrote about the Canvas Corp. Products in the Fall ScrapArtZine.

In der letzten Zeit hatte ich sehr viel Freude mit größeren Leinwänden zu spielen – ich liebe es-  es gibt mir so viel mehr Raum mich mit Textur auszutoben…nur…wo passt das noch hin – LOL. Die Leinwand ist Teil eines Artikels über die Canvas Corp Produkte.

For the background I used different kinds of coarse paint media- like gesso with sand and speckeling paste. I sprayed the background with the Limited Fall Edition Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.

Those awesome canvas and bulap banner pieces by Canvas Corp are so fun to play with either as Homedecor times or for an album. I used a Pink Paislee Mistable Screen on top of the canvas banners. The Letters are from Tattered Angels.

For the flower I used some yummie Prima Lace and in the middle- hard to see I placed a self made denim brad. So beautiful how all those products work together 🙂
