Thinking of you

          A quick card I made with some leftovers. I have once again cleaned up my craft room, organized a bit more and I am really hoping to keep it this way, lol!
It is so much nicer to work on a clear space instead of on top of everything.....
Have a great day, Anja

Elegant birthday card

  Oops, the colours on this photo are not the best, not sure what happened. The blue is totally off, oh well, I have been making a lot of cards, enjoying myself in my craft room. I wanted a card with no pink and this is what I came up with, still a little touch of pink in de dp, but that's it. Have a great day, thanks for stopping by, Anja

Spring colours!

    If only Spring was here....if I have to believe the weather man today, some nasty stuff is coming this way....Anyhow, I made a background with Glimmermists and followed the MOJO sketch from last week, forgot to upload the card but that's okay.
The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps, border and die from Cheery Lynn and Memorybox.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Playing with mixed media!

          Mixed media is hot!! I see beautiful pieces of mixed media from other people, looked around in my craft room and pulled out some glimmermists, dylusions, prismacolour pencils, Tim Holtz inks, a stencil, oh and I bought some more stuff, lol.
Anyhow, I started with a piece of watercolour paper, put my stencil on it and with a light coloured prismacolour pencil put on the dots, then I sprayed.....some mists, some inks, I can`t remember, anyhow, after it was dry....I ended up with this. Cut out the die from Memory Box, sentiment from Hero Arts and the card was done. Hope you like it, I sure had fun making it!

Derwent Inktense pencils...., MOJO 283

  It's been a while... a lot of unfinished projects are on my desk and my hubby and I went on a wonderful trip to Curacao. At the store we got those pencils, Derwent Inktense and oh yeah, you need them. This is how I look at it, it's like with your kids, you love them all, can't miss one of them but they are all different, lol!!! See, all justified!!! Well, those pencils are different, very intense, real ink, you use water but once it's dry, it's permanent. When I first played with them, I did not let the layers dry, that was a mistake, the next time, I did, used my heat gun when I couldn't wait 2 minutes, lol.
They are so easy to work with and give a beautiful result. Sketch from this card is the new MOJO sketch. Stamp from Paper Smoothes and the little clue, sorry.
Today at Wonderful Wednesday, Sheila and Lori are showing us all about those pencils and you can play with them, come on over at 1 PM and bring a donation for the foodbank if you can.
Have a great day, Anja
