Simon says: stamp it

On Simons Says the monday challenge is ' Stamp It (stamtember). Hahaha I stamp on every card, couldn't do without it. This is a simple window background with distress oxide ink and an old stamp from a euro-shop ... Made it for a young adult so kept it nice and clean.

Dusty Attic challenge: Lovely

On The Dusty attic blog this Challenge:

Beautiful warm colors!

When I got my DA price from june I was over the moon. The chance to use some new chippies, great.

The colors on the Piatek paperblock matched perfectly (although I didn't liked most of it at all).

Used some flowers and mica powder to colour the chippies.

Used my new 49&market paper, prima flowers and a nice brickwall stencil. Didn't make a lot of fuss about it. Used a very old Tim Holz big die .... remenber them? hahaha Still great to created a lot of dimention.

10 years ago I used these picture for a ' twisted sisters' challenge, stil like it. And I'm still proud of the way I been scrapbooking al these years! It gives so much grattification!

August challenge: creatieve embellishments

On creative embellishments a good mood board. Do not know what to do with them -to much information- but OK I tried. Colors and the hanging flowers.
Got beautiful Prima Paper and flowers and stuff and a picture of me in 2007... in Morocco.

Had some dies and turned them into embellishments, a great way to use old paper that I don;t want to use anymore for scrapbooking. Simply put some gesso and copper wow powder on it.

Dusty Attic: mood board juni 2019

On Dusty Attic this moodboard. The colors are stunning! I created a canvas with a picture in B&W... made in Palermo ... a guy making beuatiful bubbles and some children truly enjoying it!
Good memories.

I'm not very good with canvas, somehow it's to full and to empty, don't know but ok, the colors work for me ... I've not yet put a tittle on, could not think of one. Maybe ' WONDER'  or 'MAGIC' ...

The DA blog is so full of inspiration, I can not get enough of it! Great stuff!

My all time favorite: Hello

On 'More than words' the challenge is to use the word favorite and to scraplift yourself.

This picture is my all time favorite. We where poor in 1959 but a friend of the family made some pictures.

In 2007 the first workshop I followed was with my sister, in Rijswijk, near The Hague.
I stil love this layout.

For the scraplift I used Mintay-dear diary paper, great stuff! Prima flowers and a dusty attic chippie, that sweater was very pricktly hahaha.

Had a lot of fun making it, cheerio, Patricia

the Dusty attic: may challenge

On the dusty attic blog a color challenge
Great colors, with that little bit of green as an extra.

Used a picture with some withered flowers, that I could not do away, I loved them so much.

Used 49&M paper and some leftovers from others brands. Flowers and the DA chipboard. Very hard to get in Holland!

Only 1 or 2 i shops that sell it, and nothing of the beautifull new stuff. But anyway ....

The picture is not great, the background didn't work with the clear gesso ... but ok ... I like it.

Have a nice weekend, Patricia
