My first video and a seaweed stem of thoughts

I have got something special for you! I have made my first video! Yeah!
It´s my very first video and please be lenient with me! It´s  more an example, how  you do not have to make a video ;-)
I´m not very patient with technology… So I just give you a Link to my Vimeo place.
I´m sorry, I forgot to start my video so the background is not seen on the first video. But I´ve done a second one, where I show you my technique.

And here is the link to the video! Enjoy it!
And the second one:

This card is an example too. I have tried to paint my roses. I have used the roses stencil and modeling paste. After drying I have used some colors to give it more dynamic. The steampunk lady fits perfect with the flourish.

That´s a very special Art Journaling page for me. It is an expression of my thoughts and my feelings. A mess and yet so natural for me. In everyday life there is usually no time to listen to his thoughts and feelings. But at some point you have yet to hear back. And sometimes knowledge can be like a trip to hell. Or to heaven.
I have played with the number stencil, modeling paste and a lot of colors. I have painted the Seaweed stem and stamp on it. The paths of the branches / thoughts I have continued and partly written thoughts that I can supplement from time to time.

A little bit Steampunk and hot love

I want to share with you three layouts for Scrap FX!
The first one I have used the wonderful tree!
Oh I´m so in love with this tree and it fits perfect to my photo!
I have just painted my background with some colors and gesso, also on the tree.  Then I put some golden color on the keyholes and the clock.





I have used:
When I saw the Thermometer in my package I thought, Oh my god, what to do with it?
 I want to give it another way.
So I took this photo.
First I have sewn on the background, then put accents with red color. As below by the arrow.
The thermometer is painted in red and blue.

Steampunk Love!
Normally, as you know, Steampunk is  a lot of color and all possible and impossible things.
I wanted to create a very simple and clear Steampunk layout. Take a look:

Everything has an End

 I hope you had a great Christmas time and a lot of love in your house.
For the christmas card it´s a little to late, but the gift bags are for the whole year :-)
I´m really glad that the 2013 comes to an end! It was a very stressful year, full of disease, grief, despair and worry.
People like to say, everything has a reason why things happen .  And I often hear me say this sentence .  But sometimes when you have no more time to think about the reasons, because everything is going much too fast, and a horror follows the other, you can not hear it ! You want only that it comes to an end .
Sure it’s always nice to scrap the good side of life. But even the bad times want their place in our memories and remind us of what we have left behind us . What we have already achieved .
This year reminds me that we are held together despite all the worries , our love has grown and how incredibly important family is! That it is important to forgive not only others, but also ourselves.
We are good, even when we make mistakes .  Parents can not be perfect.  Parents can make mistakes.  People are allowed to make mistakes. Because only from our mistakes we learn.
The steampunk heart was perfect for my layout! It symbolizes the pain and loss in my heart. One half symbolizes the heart attack of my father and my fears of losing him. The other half is for my daughter. She broke up with a very painful way of us and went to live her ​​father. The dark background represents the sorrows, disease and unrest. The photo shows that we never lose our sense of humor.

That´s one of my christmas cards. I love to play with the Christmas word tree stamp! At first I embossed it with the green glitter Embossing powder from Tim Holtz. Than stamp with black over it.

Theses are my two Gift bags.






Wish you all a fantastic, health, creative, successful and satisfied new year!

Wings for friendship

We have a new sketch and Mood Board Challenge on the Scrap FX blog! Please play with us!

You will have until Friday November 15 to upload your newly created projects for this challenge to our Facebook page or here with a link if you don’t do Facebook (or both if you’d like) to be in the running for a guest spot right here on the        ScrapFX blog!!  We can hardly wait to see what you all come up with.



I feel so inspired that I have made this two things.

With this LO I try to say, what my heart is feeling. Don´t think to much with my brain and go straight. Be strong hold on to my dreams.
The words are the beginning… my minds is my story. And if I can give it a chance, the words become wings.
Beautiful words and inspiration for us all to let go and be free.

With the canvas I tried to show my thoughts about friendship. Friendship always needs something to grow. Every friendship needs something different.
And a friendship is never black or white. A friendship also needs wings, and give wings. And a friendship that give wings, never ends.
Even if you never see each other. The wings are in your heart. This symbolizes the clock stamp.
