Hello dear Blogfriends, 
can you believe it - it´s the first of December, Christmas is waiting to come just around the corner, the year is nearly gone by!
As you know: 1st of the month means a new challenge over at Country View Challenges. This month the theme is Christmas!

I made a Adventwreath to go.

Hallo liebe Blogfreunde,
kaum zu glauben - es ist tatsächlich der erste Dezember, Weihnachten lugt schon um die Ecke und das Jahr ist beinahe vorbei!
Wie ihr wisst, bedeutet der erste jeden Monats eine neue Herausforderung bei Country View Challenges. Diesen Monat lautet das Thema Weihnachten!

Ich habe einen Adventskranz to go gemacht.



Here you can find a tutorial video, enjoy watching!
Hier ist ein kleines Video, auf dem ihr seht, wie er gemacht wird. Viel Spaß beim Annschauen!



For the Christmas Market to sell I made a few more of them, Each of them looks a little bit different.

Für einen Christkindlmarkt zum Verkauf habe ich ein paar mehr davon gemacht. Jeder ist ein wenig anders dekoriert.





Now I want to wish you a happy Advent time and hope, that you´ll find some time for crafting and joining in our challenge this month.

Thank you for visiting!

Nun wünsche ich euch allen eine schöne Adventszeit und hoffe, dass ihr ein wenig Zeit zum Basteln und Mitmachen bei unserer Challenge findet.

Vielen Dank fürs Reinschauen!

Art Journal Page "Without the dark, we´d never see the stars"

Hello all, nice to have you here!
This is my second project for this month´s challenge "stars" over at Country View Challenges. I decided to make an Art Journal Page in my large Art Journal.

Hallo zusammen, schön, dass ihr bei mir reinschaut!
Das ist mein zweites Projekt für diesen Monat bei Country View Challenges mit dem Motto "Sterne".
Ich habe eine Seite in meinem großen Art Journal gestaltet.


It is a very emotional page for me, made for a very special person to me, made for some reason I don´t want to mention here. I wish for that special person, that he will be able to see the stars soon and that they will help him to get out of his dark.

Here are some steps:

I started with some thin scrapooking papers (BazzilBasicPapers from my stash) with different patterns.
I tore them to pieces and glued them to my pages, using Matte Medium.

On top I painted a thin layer of white gesso and dried it with my heating tool.
Next step was to sketch my vocal point at the left side with a pencil.
I painted the background with watered DecoArt mixed media fluid acrylics in Paynes Grey, Prussian Blue Hue, Cobalt Blue Hue, Burnt Umber and Carbon Black.


Sorry, for the next steps I missed to take pictures - I was in a flow ;-)

My man I painted with Titan Buff, Titanium White, Burnt Umber and Cobalt Black.












Then I stamped some stars, using some very old stamps from my stash with white ink and gave them some bling with stickles.



Now I stamped randomly my background with one of the background stamps from Crafters Companion "Walls and Corners" stamp set and my new bought PaperArtsy JOFY Mini stamp JM50
(I love it!). I colored them with Gelatos.

With black and white Acrylic Marker I set accents and outlines.
The blue and black Gelatos I used to frame my page.

The sentiment I printed with my Dymo, glued it down and outlined with the black Gelato. To blend the lines I used a watertank brush.














Here is a closer look of the man:




That´s it for today! I hope you find time to play with us! You have two weeks left!
Thank you for your visit and have a nice day!

I want to join in following challenges:

old: my star stamps
new: my new PaperArtsy stamp
(borrowed: I "borrowed" a male model from the internet ;-) )
blue: the heaven

Reach for the Stars!

Hello all, welcome to my blog!
First of November and that means: time for a new challenge at Country View Challenges!
This month my dear team mate Rachel wants to see "stars".
I made a card for it.


For my background I used DecoArt media fluid acrylics Titanium White, Cobalt Teal Hue, Prussian Blue Hue, Paynes Grey and Carbon Black. I dropped them in a row and took my brayer and rolled the paint on my paper to create a ombre effect. 
Then I put some Ecoline watercolor in magenta to the upper part, mixed it a bit with Titanium White to create a kind of cloudy galaxy. Then I sprinkled watered down white Gesso on top and glued down some of the small chipboard stars.
I wrote the sentiment with a white acrylic marker and surrounded the letters with a black marker.
Last I added a little glimmer by highlighting the stars and parts of the letters with ice stickles. Last but not least I randomly  rubbed DecoArt media fluid acrylics Interference Turquoise to create more interest and that´s it!

Now I hope you find time to join in our challenge!

Thank you for your visit!

Halloween Family

Hello dear Blog friends,
today I want to share with you my second make for the "All Things Spooky" challenge over at Country View Challenges, the scary Halloween Family!


I took a brown envelope for my project and played along with some mediums and paints.
Here are the steps:

1. I prepared the envelope with clear Gesso to seal the paper. Inside the envelope I put some 
    strong cardboard for more stand.

 2. I mixed Matte Medium with DecoArt media fluid acrylics "Naphtol Red Light".
 3. To create texture I dabbed the mixture with a palette knife on top of the envelope
 4. While the paint/Gel was still wet I added a piece of black spider web I bought in a 1 € store.
 5. Now I mixed DecoArt media acrylics "Paynes Grey" and "Quinacridone Magenta" to get some
     purple color.
6. I dabbed it around the edges of the orange paint/gel. Then I took my heating tool to dry the
    paint and to create some bubbles (I love those bubbles ;-) )
 7. Now I matted my photo (from Gecko Galz) with some leftover paper on which I experimented
     with paints.
 8. Distress Ink around the distressed edges helped to fit it better to the background.
 9. Now some stamping for more interest.

10. Watered black and white Gesso, sprinkled all over the background, helps to come all parts 
      more together.
  11. I grabbed some clock parts from my collected items in my stash.
 12. I took some wire to frame the photo
 13. glued down all the bits and bobs
14. and added black Gesso and Quinacridone Gold on top all metal pieces to make them look a
     bit rusty.
15. Now I glued down a title and a spider hanging on a threat(from a 1 € store too) and dabbed
      some Interference Magenta on top of the spider and the title.
16. Last I glued down some flowers and leaves from my stash.

Well, very picture heavy I fear!
