Hello, hello,

today I want to share with you my two new art journal pages.

Inspired from Rach0113 on YouTube.( I think her name is Rachel)

She publishes a new challenge once a week on YouTube,

The first challenge was " Flowers"

There is also a Facebook page under #Artful Evidence

which you can share your interpretation from the challenge.

The art journal page must be 6x6inch or 15 cm x 15 cm.

From my collection of children- fashion photography in black and white

I always wanted to make a small fairy-tale or whimsy cal art book.

I just needed this challenge to start my book.

Thanks Rach0113.

More Than Words DT Art Journal March page

Hello everyone,

welcome to my new DT inspiration for the

 main challenge by More than Words.


Here is the link to the blog from: MTW

ATTENTION this is important:

We have new challenge rules...

I made for this challenge an art journal page.

I`m comfortable with who I`am.

Art journal-pages is something I do not show so often here on my blog.

But still I like it!! Maybe that`s because I use my art journal book to try out

new techniques.

Here is my creative challenge step:

I designed this page on Canson Acrylic paper 24 cm x 32 cm.

At first I draw four large circles and then four small circles.

I used for the green color Lindy`s spray: Cathedral Pines Green

and for the bordeaux/ purple color Lindy`s spray: Open Arms Armethyst.

For the two soft colors I used Jane Davenport watercolor set.

I also used the same color for the small circles, but here I diluted more water

so that it looks more transparent.

Then I scribbled around the circles with the Stabilo pen to get a bit of shadow

effect. I activated the Stabilo pen with water, afterwards I dried

the wet Stabilo color with a Heat Tool so that the color of the Stabilo pen

becomes waterproof.

I also drew lines with the ruler and a Posca black pen.

My next step was stamping with Archival Ink: Plum, Aquamarine and Olive

and stamps from Unity Stamp Company.

I wrote my quote with Indian Ink.

For the finale touch a little bit transfer folie in bronze from the

dollar store here in The Netherlands and Ecoline Nr.100 for splattering was used.

My word inspiration comes from:

 I`m comfortable with who I am.

I have a healthy and happy family, a husband I love about everything.

I am healthy, too. I can make my day as I like. For that I am unspeakably

thankful and happy. I wanted to express this artistically on my art journal page.

Please my dear blog readers read the More Than Words challenge rules exactly

so you can make a chance of our awesome prizes.

Maybe you would like to join us this month?......

and you need more inspiration, no problem ....go to the blog from MTW

to admire all the DT work...... and maybe this is what you need

for inspiration to join us...I see you on the blog.

Have a nice day.

and this awesome design paper from the dollar store here in The Netherlands

give a great combination together.

Abstract Scrapbook Layout for Scrap FX Australia with Video tutorial

Hello everyone,

welcome to my new Design Team inspiration

for the Company: Scrap FX Australia.

Here is the link to the blog from Scrap FX: Blog

Scrap FX Australia is a chipboard company with high quality chipboards,

stamps, stencil and silhouette.

I made for the February month an abstract scrapbook layout on Kraft paper

in black and white.

What do I call abstract scrapbooking (ASB)?

Well, first of all there are NO 3D flowers on the layout but

chipboards, iron wire, sewing thread and as well cut photos.

For me the background work is the most important aspect of ASB

I see my abstract scrapbook page as a further processing of the photo.

In the best scene of the words: so the photographer and the scrapbooker stand side by side,

to create a work of ART together.

I create my ASB on monochrome paper, so that the background becomes more effective.

Just as when you will start painting on white canvas. I applied the colors with the

paletknife. Also you can use other mediums such as: modeling paste, crackle paste,

embossing powder etc etc etc.... Stencils or stamps can be used as tools.

Glitter, micro beads and art stones are a nice finish touch.

 But anyway here is my layout...

I used:

13@arts clear gesso, Prima Marketing black gesso,

WOW embossing powder, Ecoline white,

Prima Marketing art stones, Powertex 3D balls,

Tacky glue, Ranger Heat Tool, LaBlanche flower stamp,

Posca white pen, Ranger ultra thick embossing powder in black,

7 Dots studio sticker, Ranger emboss it dabber, Unity stamp company stamp set keep wild,

Kraft paper 30 cm x 30 cm, decorative laces, black glass glitter.

Also the products from the Scrap FX Australia store.

Here is the link to the store from Scrap FX: store

Harlequin Stamp

Lace A Loops stamp

For all who are interested to see how I made my ASB layout,

Have a nice day.

Stick it down layout with video tutorial

Hello everyone,

today I would like to introduce you to a special collaboration between the two challenge blogs

Scrap The Boys and Stick it Down.

Stick it Down prepared the sketch with which we were allowed to play creatively. 

As always, I made a mixed media layout which I will show here today.

On the photo you can see our youngest children actually now young adults.

The photo was taken years ago in Tunisia.

Here in The Netherlands we have in May always the so-called Royal Holidays

which are about a week. We have always used this time to fly where the sun is, to escape the rainy


Well, you cannot have everything...

I am grateful that we had the opportunity to visit this country.

But anyway here is the link to Stick it Down: SID

and here is the link to Scrap The Boys: STB

This is the sketch for the challenge by SID.

No automatic alt text available.

I made a video for this challenge page, as always I worked with different materials.

This is what I used:

13@arts clear gesso, Prima black gesso, white gesso, Prima Modeling paste,

Heindesign Germany Sternenstaub embossing powder, Archival ink, Distress Ink,

My Mind`s Eye paper, Tilda paper, Crafters Workshop stencil, Twinkeling H2O olive, Tim Holtz 

stamp set, chipboard Action, power tex 3 D balls, Panduro Acrylic,

I have been asked why my video tutorials are so long. Well there is a reason for that and that is:

When I started years ago with scrap-booking I learned a lot from other video tutorials.

But unfortunately I had to realize again that for me as a beginner some tutorials were played too fast. 

So I said to myself if I should ever start with filming tutorials I will play it slower.

So for anyone who does not feel fast enough, please have understanding for those who are just

beginning and still want to learn a lot. Hopefully!!

But anyway....

On the sketch from SID you can see that a big heart is in the foreground, of course it is the month of 


Now my two children are having a very good relationship with each other and I think that it does not 

have to show a couple in love but it can also be the love between brother and sister. 

Big smile...

Thank you for stopping by have a beautiful day.

xoxo Heike
