DT projects

Since I do not have to work for 2 weeks...well only 10 days left now :(.... I have plenty of time to scrap and relax :)
I am working on several different projects which I will not show until they are completely finished.
So for now I will share 2 projects I made earlier this month for Memory Lane Scrapbooking

The first project is an altered block.
I first painted it with paint dabbers (thanks Monique :)!)
stamped on it with a contrasting colour with this stamp.
I then attached love-couples from a TopHat Design collagesheet to the block using Gel Medium from Golden.
Adhered some Chipboard letters and nailed the love bird on top of it.
The butterflies are rubons.

The other project is a 3d wooden box from Ikea. I showed a different project with this idea before. This one was made for the December Challenge of MLS, we had to make a project/LO using only Christmas articles....
Of course I used some PP...but only from Basic Grey's Christmas line.

Christmas is over......

...... but my Christmas tree is here to stay for AT LEAST another 2 weeks :)
I love to lie on the couch...with a book and the lights of the tree lighting up the living room (or at least they are supposed to do so...have to buy more lights for next year).

I love to look out of my window and see all the Christmas lighting in the neighbourhood. It is always such a dissapointment when it is time to remove the tree.. and all the other decorations... this makes me feel a little depressed....

But for now... I am still enjoying the Holiday season and so is my cat

To make you all a little bit LO for this weeks Dutch Dare was inspired by this painting:

Collage on Canvas

For the 80st birthday of my father in law I made this collage on 30x30 cm canvas; inspired by techniques seen in the collage discovery books of Claudine Hellmuth.

When you click on her books in the sidebar you will be redirected to her website and have a look at her art. These books are an absolute must for everyone who plays with paper and scissors... great and mostly easy to do techniques can be found in these books.

I used 3 layers of patterned paper, Golden gel medium, masking tape, Amsterdam acrylic paint, paper kitchen towels, a transparancy and and a printed inkjet photo. and notice the little Hambly touch on the left....

I am not suprised at all...........

You are The Fool

The Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he need to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning. But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. Stop daydreaming and fantasising and watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

I have tarot cards at home... and I used to draw one card each day... and guess which card I drew 7 out of 10 times?.....
I stopped reading the cards because I got too nervous of it....
