A as Alphabet

As I had been thrown out of my crafting room by my daughter (just kidding - but that´s the only place where we have a PC needed to play online games) I played around some more with my new crowabout collage sheets for the challange at

Wish you all a good start in the working week

calendar page week 24

As Sarah is still ill (going in to the 3rd week with fiebre and the doctors not having a clue) I used the time she´s watching Grey´s Anatomy (yes, I have to admit it, we are big fans) to have fun with crowabout Studio B and my new de Stempelwinkel stamps

I used my new bottle stamp and stamped on magazine pages and then cut out.

Have a great Sunday!

new calendar pages week 22 and 23

I have finally - little by little - finished two more pages I want to show you now

A doodling experiment or experience:

and a "being in" or better "being over the clouds" (using once more artistic outpost) - I am not too happy with that scan - in the original you can see my distressed clouds better - but I think you get the idea.
The funky lady is from Crowabout Studio B and the plane from a mazine.

The pictures a photos of the women of my family: my mother, my daughter and me - 3 generations- you can have a guess who is who

Landscape within me

I found the topic landscape within me very interesting so I gave it a try, actually 2, but the first one looked so much like one of my previous pages that I stopped and started again. So here´s my interpretation

Take a Word Challenge - Moon

With holidays coming to an end I have decided to use my last free day to participate in some more challanges.
Here´s my interpretation of the topic moon

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
