:::TH::: 12 Tags of 2013 - November

Today I'm sharing my version of Tim's November tag, which you can found -here-. It's all about the chalkboard stamping technique. Still with no antiquites embossing powder in my stash, I used white embossing powder and covered it with real chalk.
There's only one month left in the 12 Tags of 2013 journey, I hope, there will be a new round in 2014.


Bei meiner Version des November-Tags von Tim Holtz musste ich mal wieder improvisieren. Er benutzt für die Kreidetechnik ein spezielles Embossingpulver, welches ich nicht besitze. Also habe ich mal wieder weiß embosst und dann mit Kreide drübergewischt.

:::TFJ::: #9 - 12 Tags of Christmas

It's tag #9 at Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge over at The Funkie Junkie. A wonderful challenge sponsored by Linda's shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Please take a look at Linda's tag here, really a great inspiration.
I got my inspiration from her color scheme, really love the blue and silver combination. I also love the tattered pinecone die and the use of the cheese cloth. Futher the heart, just beautiful. As there is no Distress Glitter in my stash so far, I've worked with Distress Stickles.
The stars are stamped with Embossing ink and silver sparkled embossed. Like Linda I've mixed Faded Jeans and Brushed Pewter Distress Stains on my craft sheet and blotted the tag into it. The heart, the "roses" and the branches are colored with Brushed Pewter, too. The little "dots" are created with a silver bead pen.

:::TFJ::: #8 - 12 Tags of Christmas

The 12 Tags of Christmas journey over at Linda's The Funkie Junkie goes on. A great challenge sponsored by Linda's Shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Creating tag #8 I've taken my inspiration from the wonderful background technique by Tammy Tutterow which you can find here.
I've colored the background with Distress inks and splattered some water droplets (one of my favorite doings). Then I stamped the bauble with Versamark several times and clear embossed. Then I applied thinned white acrylic paint, wiped with a damped cloth and sprayed some Glimmer Mist. I stamped the pine tree in Archival Jet Black once on the tag and once on a white cardstock,  colored with Gelatos and added a shimmering effect with Glimmer Mist. Then I cut out the pine tree and the three baubles and attached them to the tag. The edges are distressed and colored with brushed corduroy.

:::TFJ::: #7 - 12 Tags of Christmas

Still catching up with my versions of Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas 2013 challenge, which is generously sponsored by Linda's Shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique. For tag #7 I got my inspiration from the wonderful background, all the tiny little tags and the poinsettia.
First of all I stamped several definitions in Archival Maroon onto the background and then colored it with Distress inks and splattered some water drops over it. Then I used a texture fade, sponged Distress Brushed Corduroy, added embossing ink and clear embossed.
The tiny tags are out of dark red cardstock and stamped with Brilliance Moonlight White, I took the same definitions as for the background, distressed the edges and sponged with Brushed Corduroy. Parts of the poinsettia, the letters, stars and swirl are die cuts from an old book page (glued on cardstock). All the edges are sponged with Brushed Corduroy, too.
Traditional Christmas means red and gold, glitter and stars for me.

:::TCB::: Alpha Challenge - Letter Q

It's time again for a new letter at The Craft Barns's dictionary challenge. It's Q ... without a twist :) Again there are not many words available in my french/german dictionary.
It's "Q" for quadrangulaire (angular); quadrilatère (quadrangle); quarante (fourty); quatorze (forteen) and quatre (four, in a group of four).

Heute eine weitere Seite für die Wörterbuch-Herausforderung bei The Craft Barn. Es ist "Q" angesagt.... mal wieder keine sehr große Auswahl.

:::TIO::: #154 A Song of your Choice plus A Bird, A Crown and Blue

Days are flying and it's time for a new theme over at Dragons Dream Tag It On. It's May's turn to come up with a new recipe for you and us. She chose Song (of your choice) as the allover theme and her ingredients are A Bird, A Crown and Blue.... and of course don't forget to use at least one real stamp on your tags.
After a long thought I took a lyric from ASP "Elf und Einer" (Eleven and One), it's part of the Krabat album. Perhaps you know the story Krabat written by Otfried Preußler. The band ASP created an album based on this novel. I'm sure it's not for everyone ears ;)
First of all I stamped the old cabin and the birds with black pigment ink and clear embossed. Then I colored the background with different blue distress inks, put on a stencil and colored with a darker blue. I stamped the branches and put on another stencil and added texture paste for the bricks.

Heute gibt es wieder eine neue Herausforderung bei Dragons Dream Tag It On. Meine Teamkollegin May hat sich für ein Lied (eurer Wahl) entschieden und möchte zusätzlich einen Vogel, eine Krone und die Farbe Blau auf euren Tags sehen. Und natürlich ... nicht vergessen... mindestens einen echten Stempel.
Nach langem Überlegen habe ich mich für das Lied Elf und Einer aus dem Krabat Album von ASP entschieden. Die Geschichte kennen mit Sicherheit die meisten von euch. Ob ihr auch das erwähnte Album kennt weiß ich nicht, die Musik ist nicht jedermanns Geschmack ;)

:::TFJ::: #6 - 12 Tags of Christmas

I'm catching up with Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas. This challenge is sponsored by Linda's The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Today I'm sharing my version of her tag #6. I took my inspiration from the torn edges -love this shabby look-, the sewing part, the bow und the paper note. The pine tree die is one of my favorites, so no question to use it, too. I glued a piece of an old bookpage onto the background and colored the whole thing with distress ink, sprayed a bit of glimmer mist, stamped with archival black jet and added a few splatter of thinned golden acrylics.
The tree is out of corrugated cardboard and colored with distress stains. The text on the little note is gold embossed.


Heute nun meine Version von Linda's Tag #6 ihrer tollen 12 Tags of Christmas Herauforderung. Ich habe mich von den gerissenen Rändern, dem Genähten, der Tanne, der Schleife und der Notiz inspirieren lassen.
Mein drittes Werk im neuen Bastelzimmer.... es sind noch so viele andere Dinge zu erledigen, dass das neue Zimmer etwas verwaist ist.

:::Art Journal::: November

Time is running an I'm still working on my new craft room. So I'm a bit late with my November page, which I created the day before all my craft stuff have been boxed.
I played with color wash sprays, gesso and water.
I'm joining:
