calendar page week 10

Here I want to show you my calendar page for week 10. Background was made with pan pastels (I am still practising).  Honestly I am not really good at it so far, but one has to use what one has, don´t you think?

The hat is a free digital stamp from the octopode factory, the rest of the stamps are from de Stempelwinkel.

handle with care

You know that I love dylusion inks spray and that´s what you get here.
There´s only one thing I do not like about them - they are difficult to collage with (at least for me), as the only way not to smear the colour is to use a glue stick.
So if you have found another way, let me know. I would be very happy to try.

And in case you are wandering why I concentrate so much on couples, Jetske choose some gorgious plates from Non Sequitur for this month.

Details concerning the stamps can be found here:

love portion

Inspired by some chipboard bottles on the internet and having laying around some chipboard perfume bottles I just knew what to do with one of these


The label was done with a spellbinder die.

...find a guy

Googleing around I found this wonderful quote that fits so perfectly to the Stempelwinkel topics for this month.
I guess I have to admit, I have not found a man like that (as my mother would say, I have to bake me one..:)) but it is a nice dream. Just do not forget that it is bothsided. Hey, we live in an emanzipated world, and never ask anything from anyone that you yourself are not willing to give.

calendar page week 8

so here´s week 8.
I was inspired by that images from Dover. I used acrylic colours and papercut the guy and glued him down

Loving my stencils I used them for a more layered background for the houses, not too much as I still want to be able to journal, even might use the street for more journaling.

This is the 3rd collage I made to redecorate my messy craft room, once again painted on wood (all the paitings were made on wood panels, that came by for 1 € each at some male crafting shop starting with O :)

I did not gesso  the wood, but directly applied the acrylic colours. I did not use any ink sprays as going over with modge podge is an art I at least can´t control.

Calendar pages

I always liked the idea of the calendar of Kate Crane. But I did not want to buy a big journal and infact I really like the idea of a weekly calendar instead of a monthly.
Thanks to the advice of Terry I am now able to upload again, so here we go:
 week 1
week 2
week 3
week 4
week 5
And if you want to see some more calendars go to
you might even like to join our facebook group.
And thank you sooo much Terry

Being on cloud 9 with butterflies in your belly?

Then this card idea might be the right one for you

lots of stencils, diamond glaze and - of course stamps from de stempelwinkel/Non Sequitur, some paper napkin with roses and here we go.

no uploading of pictures

Dear friends,

I am fighting with uploading new pics, but I am not able to do so (having no longer the possibility to upload from my computer - only other options).
Until that is solved you have to go to flickr to see my calendar pages 2013 and anything new. Posts for the DT of de stempelwinkel I had already uploaded, you can see, but apart from that......Sorry.

If you had that problem as well and solved it - I would be very grateful for some advice.

Hugs, Silke

Happy 2013

I wish you all a very happy and creative 2013. May we succeed with some of our New Year´s resolutions (not all of course, keeping the tradition of breaking some -LOL).

At de Stempelwinkel we choose a new design for our monthly calender page- I hope you like it.
Going crazy with dylusion inks, arcylics, alcohol inks and some sizzix dies, here´s my version. Theme was love and romance.

Details on the stamps (and only after making the list at de Stempelwinkel I realized how many I have used) as usually at
