I needed a really happy page with all the unhappy stuff going on in my life right now, so I made some houses (love to do that) and used some left-over scrap from a children book. I guess it would be fun to live in that neighbourhood.

have a great week, xx

sometimes life is a rollercoaster....

Guest designer at de Stempelwinkel: when monsters travel

Once again inspired by artfully musing I made a ballon, with a lot of clear embossing and inking the paper afterwards black.

Details on "how-to" you can find here: with a link to YouTube to watch how it is made.

in Detail as the balloon is bigger than really fits well on a photo

Guest designer at de Stempelwinkel: Poison bottle

Of course a bottle of poison should not be missing as a Halloween deco and so I altered an empty martini bottle in a whitchy poisonous bottle

Who knows what happens when you drink out of it :)

I was trying to clean my writing desk (trying because I am miles away from being finished but I have found  a big enough working place again to stop now :)  ) and here´s what I found, a page I made some weeks ago trying out my new Pam Carriker ear stencil and just playing ....

The stamp you see is handcarved.
Have a great start into the new week

One of my gelli experiments went totally wrong, but with some pink acrylic colours I think it made nevertheless a cool Background....
And with J as in jewel I thought hey, Diamonds are great jewels and who does not remember that very popular song about "Diamonds are a girl´s best friend"...

have a great weekend and thank you all for your wonderful comments of my last post.
Hugs, Silke

Destashing some more and going with the Topic SHE ART / F~E~M~I~N~I~N over at

here´s what I came up with

also participating at:

just in case you can´t read my handwriting...

maybe it´s just me, but I have to admit I really found parts of myself in that sentiment.

By the way, the pinkish Background was made with my fabulous birthday present - a gelli art plate. Yeepieh.
Just in case I have not commented on one of your recent Posts it´s due to a lack of time as my work keeps me very busy at the Moment and after 10 hours in front of a Computer I just try to avoid it in my freetime. So don´t be angry with me, the time comes when the work load gets back to normal.

Guest designer at de Stempelwinkel: Tunnelbook

I do love Halloween, but not in the scary way but more decorative and fun way. So with the new Halloween stamps from de Stempelwinkel I let my fantasy fly and within the next 4 weeks I am going to show what I did, starting with a tunnelbook that was inspired by

When assembling the book make sure that you base and hinches are thick enough!

Hope you like it

challange time at the altered eclectics

With Halloween only days apart (ok, some more days) I altered this door stander, having once been a really ugly but cheap 1 € wooden Christmas tree, into a Halloween door stander, using quite a bit of my Halloween stash
in Detail:


But even though I really was destashing, I still have too much stuff - one does not see one bit of difference :)

Have a not too spoooky week, XX
