Fancy Scrap Crow Mobile Pocket


I have seen scrap crow dolls in the latest issue of "Cloth Paper Scissors". Yesterday I made a mobile pocket for Stefanie in the same style. Now I have to let this crow fly away :-(
And thank you to Johanna and Gisele - for the information about this fantastic and inspiring magazine.

Icicle & Dotee Dolls


Great fun to sew and embellish such little fabric doll hangers !

Metal Craft Brooche


This a brooche also for a Künstlerdecos group swap. I have stamped a piece of brass foil and embossed the lines of this house motif with a knitting needle. Then I have coloured the embossed house with black acryl. Above this brass house I have put copper net and some metal embellishment. The background is cardboard with black felt on it.

Little Girls ATCs




These ATCs are for the Künstlerdeco group. They were made on three different days: "orange day", "pesto day" and "walnut brown with mica day".

Numbers ATCs



Two ATCs for a "numbers or letters ATC" swap. I made two ATC with letters, too, but I was disappointed about the results and started again. Maybe I like numbers more than letters.

Skinny Alphabet Book: X for "X-Pression"


The challenge for the X page was to embellish the letter X and just to use the X. I have taken a digital collage from a magazine because it has a very strong expression - another good reason for arting ! I have added some stamping and my decorated X.

Skinny Alphabet Book: F for "Fantasy"


Black & White with a Smidgen of Color. That was the challenge for F. "Fantasy" is a good reason for arting, isn't it ? And can you remember how it was to be a child living and learning in your own world of fantasies ?

Skinny Alphabet Book: T for "Tactile"


The skinny book challenge was using either tissue paper or paper dinner napkins for the letter T. I have used tissue paper, gel medium and acryl for the background. I like the feeling of textures and different materials. This kind of sense is a very important reason for arting for me. That's why I have chosen the word "tactile".
