Happy Summer for July/August on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges

I have used: DecoArt media Texture Sand Paste, Americana Decoupage matte, DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Turquoise, Cobalt Teal Hue, Yellow Green Light, Quinacridone Gold and Andy Skinner stamp Toxic.

Why not send junk snail mail to those you love.
I have made 5 ATCs where I started putting different scraps, a piece of a book page, and a teabag on my A4 watercolor paper with the decoupage matte. I cut the entire watercolor paper into the ATC size then came texture paste on a text stencil to give a little bit of 3D. On the background I have sewn a little cotton strip, stamped with brown, teal and black. I painted with my three main colors and have given them a little bit of age. Finally all my gear, stamps and my scraps with text were placed on my ATCs.

Come and participate on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges
and win great prizes from DecoArt media and Steampunk chipboard package from Boozybear

I wish you all a lovely and warm summer vacation.
Thank you for visiting my blog hugs, Susan

North Sea Treasures

I always enjoy going to the ocean to walk on the beach and look for what the ocean is holding and washing up on the sand shore.
A small canvas 10x10 cm with the found treasures The North Sea gave me.

I have mixed matte medium with cerulean blue color, and did the same with texture sand paste with cobalt turquoise painted on the canvas with spartel. I have rubbed the cobalt teal color with my finger on crackle paste when it was dry. On all the outer edges I have used Prussian blue.

DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics: Prussian Blue Hue, Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Teal Hue, Cobalt Turquoise Hue and Translucent White
DecoArt media Crrakle Paste, Matte Medium and Texture Sand Paste.

 I have also used a 10x10 cm canvas plate, brads, text from computer, mica sand, steel wire, glue,  fabric and my North Sea Treasures.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I wish you a wonderful day

Time flies and I do not have time to do so much creative, but I really enjoyed the course "Night Flight" with Dorota aka Guriana.

I was very excited if I could manage to work with lead and soldering.

Thank you for your visit and I wish you all a good day.

New May challenge at SanDee&amlelie's Steampunk

There are so many who make great notebooks so I had to try too ... I was very inspired by Jenny Marples, Eileen Hull and Nik the Booksmith on YouTube to name a few of the many who make notebooks that are amazing.

Here is the front page.

And here's the back.

There is only one signature, but with 44 pages I can write, draw and paste photos and more on.

All sides are coffee stained and dried in the oven. I have distressed all the edges with ink.

I have used: DecoArt Media White, black gesso and modeling paste.
DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Translucent White, Yellow Green Light, Quinacridone Violet, Cadmium Orange Hue and Quinacridone Gold.
Andy Skinner Stencil 03, 08 and 107, Andy Skinner Stamp Industrial

On the inside, I have used my brayer to distribute the acrylic colors and used the industrial stamp to give the old look.

With my sewing machine I made big and small pockets, so tags and photos can be saved.

I kept finding different things I could put into the notebook, but I had to stop. I really enjoyed playing with this book.

All the other things I've used are from my stash

I hope you will join in on the challenge

Thank you for your visit and I wish you a crafty day.
Hugs, Susan

Happy Easter Holiday

How I miss Tim's creative monthly tag !!! (Desperate LOL)

I must admit that I am very bad to make a follow-up on Facebook and Pinterest on which creative projects I do. I spend the time with my family, and I enjoy the fine sunny weather which also have come to Denmark.

Here is a small Easter greetings to you all. I have used the new oxide inks and the cute bunny.

Here are my two favorite girls...

Thanks for visiting and I wish you a good crafting day.

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges April 2017

Then there is again a new challenge on SanDee&amelie's Steampunk blog, come over to participate. 

I've got a new Tim Holtz die and I was in love immediately.
Here you have my basement which is very steamy, working with clean water from the underground.

I started to cover my tag with white gesso and let it dry. So I took my three main colors and dripped them and distributed them on my tag with my brayer, and while the colors were moist I strewed kitchen salt on. It is a method that Andy Skinner has shown, that I had to try.  I sanded with sandpaper when it was completely dry and so I mounted my pipeline. I am happy with my result.

 I have used : 
DecoArt media Fluid Acrylics: Translucent White, Quinacridone Gold, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Raw Umber and Cobalt Teal Hue
DecoArt media White Gesso
Andy Skinner stamp Toxic and Industrial Elements stencil

Pipeline die from Tim Holtz and remnant rubs
Grungeboard, medical tape, cheesecloth, cardboard, brad, sandpaper, Derwent inktense, kitchen salt, Archival ink Cobalt, gold and 3D foam

Thanks for visiting and I wish you a creative day.
Hugs, Susan
