Last Challenge for me: Anything goes

Last time I participate as a DT in Challenge yourself.
Scrapping yourself is fun, but I also like to scrap my cats and nature things... so time to make al little change.

This time the challenge is:

I've made a rather wild en MM layout with some stitching on it! Used some old paper from the stash. On the picture it's me an my older sis... A big hug to Sharon F and the team, there's some talent on the blog!

Challenge 59: bling buttons and butterflies

On Challenge Yourself the best challenge: use bling, buttons and butterflies, my top favorites!!!
Used all kinds of scraps from the stocks and the table.

I've set myself a challenge: not to buy any new stuff for a year! Truly want to use everything I've got, simply because to much craft articles are very bad for the environment. In production, to much plastic etc. The paper is from Kaisercraft, the picture is from me and my siblings in 1965.
Have a good weekend.

MMP july/aug: Use your wings

Have taken a moodboard from mixed media place and made a layout with a very nice summer-picture I made last week.
Used 49and market paper, it is a bit to thick for me but the color is great...
I like how it turned out, and my cat String likes is to  :)

The inspiration from the board came from the beautiful summery flowers ...

Two (simple) tags

This week on Simon monday challenge: tape it.
Have used some beautiful stamps bij stampers anonymous and Tim Holz art tape.

Made tags very simple, it's my experience that I use my tags for presents and so, if they are clear and simple.
Mixed Media is not for everyone...  ;)

More than words: Postcard from Yesterday

On this more then real life blog MORE THAN WORDS a vintage challenge. ....
I've used a picture of my grandmother and some lovely Stamperia paper. And a lot of flowers, gesso, and some chipboard. Had a good time creating this layout.
Thinking about my grandmother who was a lovely lady. And about that picture, I think it was made in 1928 or so. Wow 90 years ago ... she looks so sweet. No selfies then, only 1 picture from the photographer ....

I've uses clear gesso for the first time ... have to get used to it, but I don't like how the stamps on the background get a bit ' blurry'.

#55:Take me to the ocean

On Challenge yourself a great challenge: a picture of yourself with an ocean theme. In Holland it's a very hot summer, so even the thought of the ocean is refreshing.
I've used paper from DLS, very expensive and a bit disappointing, but some of the bits are nice enough.
The picture is taken in Casablanca, Morocco, one of the best beaches I've ever been.

Challenge Yourself: #50! Color challenge

This month the challenge on Challenge yourself:
a color palette and an added twist, use a heart.
I've made a layout with two schoolpictures with my sisters, using a little quote 'always in my heart'.
This paper is Prima, Rose quarts.

It's a bit of a pitty that the picture doesn't really show how well this layout has turned out. So much background and details, but ok, now it's on my wall in my scraproom and I love it every day   ;)

Well have not been blogging for a big time ... to busy working ... but this year I hope that I'll take more time for my health and my creativity ....

On Challenge yourself number 49 is to get inspiration from this song: you Raise me up... super nice.

I've used a picture of my mum and me, on her 86e birthday. A beautiful day. Tried to make a bit of a baroque page, didn't work out like I wished but it is special to me.
Used Kaisercraft, love the brand.

Have a super nice 2018!
