Home Sweet Home

Hello friends!

Winter is back and bring us tons of snow. 
But spring should start, at least according to the calendar?!
So high time to do something for the spring, right?  
That dispels the gloomy thoughts!

I want to share this romantic, shabby chic layout in this following challenges.

a cozy home with a lot of spring flowers, 
where I feel comfortable and friends like to come to visit

I was inspired from this beautiful lady and scent of the flowers
I love spring flowers and lilac scent in the flat
and looking forward to this wonderful time

Happy weekend!

Scrap FX Creativity


Today two new inspirations with some chipboards and stencils from Scrap FX.

As I saw the wordlet 'Creativity contagious - Pass it on'  I thought yes that's right and very suitable for an art journal page. I chose an grunge altered style with only few colours on a torned cardstock.
With stencil 'Splat Stencil'
and some background stamps, washi tape and a wonderful photo collage a right combination for me.
Creativity has a lot to do with experimenting and trying out new ideas and so it's always a pleasure to create new inspirations with the awesome products from Scrap FX.


.......and the next mixed media project, it's a canvas in steampunk style. I love this very creative style, it's always a new adventure to combine a lot of various materials and textures.

Create your own sunshine is the titel of this project.

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

Maja Design - A beautiful evening

Welcome Maja Friends!

 I’m also still creating with our latest amazing 'Celebration' collection. As I saw this elegant dancing pair I thought on our annual SemperOperaball in Dresden. It's a very special and magic event.

'Despite low temperatures, thousands of people will take to the theatre square in front of the Semper Opera House to celebrate the Semper Open Air Ball. While  guests watch the gala programme inside, up to 15,000 partygoers will be singing and dancing outside in front of the opera house. In rain, freezing temperatures or under starlit skies – the Semper Open Air Ball transforms the square into the world's largest dance floor for the locals and guests.'

Therefore I was inspired to make a home decoration piece, it's a cloche in romantic vintage style. 

How you can see you will need not so much materials, main thing is the paper sheet 'Ballroom dancing', old music paper, Distress inks and some embellishments how like flowers, lace, feathers and what do you want.

I used as basic a star from a cutting die.  After I cut out the pair, I curved the motif with a knitting needle and folded the feets to glue them on. The paper from Maja Design is so stable that it stands alone, but you can stick to support a few more blooms from behind against it.
Now you just need to stick the decoration on.

 I rolled up the notebook paper, distressed the edges and created some paper sticks.

 I highlighted some places with Stickles 'Baby Blue' from Ranger.

a wonderful blue feather suitable to the ball gown

... and your new eyecatcher  is ready :-)

Thanks for your visit!
