First pages of the travel journal - for Country View Challenges

Hello, I´m back again!
My daughter and I had a wonderful time while travelling through the USA and Canada.
Here are the first pages, where I wrote in our everyday destinations.



I used some papers from a Tim Holtz paper pad, covered some parts with white Gesso and stamped an old automobile on top. I cut out a part of a map with the parts of America and Canada and glued it onto the page. For the flap, I glued a stripe of watercolor paper on one side, stamped the dates and added the cities beside.
Here are some close ups:




More to come soon!

Thank you for your visit today - and don´t forget to join in our challenge at Country View Challenges!

DIY Travel Note Book for Country View Challenges

Hello dear visitors, nice to have you here!

While you are reading this post, I am still on vacancy with my daughter in the USA.... or may be we are in Canada right now? 😀

What a big adventure and a big, big dream coming true!
We are travelling three weeks from New York, the coast up to Quebeck over Montreal and Toronto to the Niagara Falls and then back to New York before we go home again.
Wow! I can´t believe it! I´m writing this one day before we start, I´m so excited!

Well, I needed a Travel Note Book - of course we want to see as much as possible and I don´t want to forget anything! So I made this.
Fitting to the September challenge over at Country View Challenges "Planes, Trains, Automobiles", hosted by the lovely Miriam, I decorated the cover with a plane and a shrinked stamped Automobile.


Today I don´t have steps or a video for you - I had no time, sorry!

I made this book some time ago, but I measured the cover wrong and I didn´t like the paper I covered it, so I took it and changed the look.
This is what it looked before:


Well, pretty, but...

I took some papers from the Tim Holtz Correspondece Paper Pad and made the cover new.



← Front




             Back →


 ← Front inside






Back inside →






I added some checkered paper to the binded notebook to have more space for more notes, e.g. expenditure, notes, ...


I played with some mists, crackle paste through a stencil and stamps, stamped the title, fuzzy cut the aeroplane and put everything together. 


Then I added a eyelet and threaded a leather string through.

Here are some close ups:







 The inside I will show you, when I am back - hopefully filled with beautiful memories, so stay tuned!
Well, meanwhile I hope, you will find the time join in with our challenge this month, so that I´ll get to see some pretty makes from you when I come home!

Thank you for your visit today and have a good time.

Fun at the Beach - Vintage Card for Country View Challenges

Hello and welcome today, 
we are having a really hot summer here, so I decided to choose a picture from Gecko Galz which shows some vintage Ladies at the beach. I made  a card again.


First I made a lace with a silicone mold and light modeling paste and adhered it with matte medium.
Then I colored the background with acrylic paints, highlighted with wax paste and matted my picture with patterned paper. Then I put everything together and embellished the card with tinted cloth, colored flowers, a seashell and a stamped saying.
Here are some close ups:





Oh, one thing I wanted to mention: we had a total moon eclipse this week, it was very impressive! I tried to take some photos of it. You even could see the Mars (it´s the smaller point in the second photo).



That´s it from my side today, I hope you feel inspired to make something beachy for our challenge this month!
Thank you for your visit today and have a wonderful summer!

Sun, Sea and Sand - Card for Country View Challenges

Hello dear visitors, nice to have you here!

August - the month for vacation and holidays, time for beach and sea, time for travel or for lazy days!
The wonderful Corrie hostes the challenge this month at Country View Challenges and she has chosen the theme: Sun, Sea and Sand  (make a summer or holiday themed project).

I made a birthday card for a summer birthday child.


I used the beachy stamp from PaperArtsy (Mini MN04), a granite paint in the color sand, which I have for ages in my stash and one of the new Seth Apter Baked textures Embossing powders from Emerald Creek (Ancient Amber).
For the background I played with two colors of the Infusions powders (Olive Tree and A Bit Jaded) and for the decoration I used collected shells from Italy and 3D Balls and Mini Art Stones.

If you want to watch the process, you can find the video here:


Here are some close ups:




So thank you for your visit today - and I wish you wonderful holidays, at home or far away!
May be you´ll find the time to join our challenge, you can win a 20£ voucher for the shop!
Have a wonderful August!

Art Journal Page "Nature´s Beauty" for CVC

Hello everybody!
July, wonderful month of summer and high time in the garden. Flowers are blooming, we have some really hot days - I love this time of the year!

One of the most beautiful representative of summer is the sunflower. They are in full bloom now and I love their sunny and friendly faces - and the birds do love them too for their sunflower seeds.

For my second project this month at Country View Challenges for the challenge "In the summer garden" I made an Art Journal Page with a sunflower.



I made a video tutorial, so if you want to know, how this page came together, sit back and enjoy!


Here are some close ups:




  That´s it for today. You have some days left to join in with our challenge, so grab your crafty stash and make something beautiful! You can win a 20£ voucher for the shop!
Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful summer!
