Can't win 'em all ......

I played with my new Ranger Distress Paints and came up with some beautiful backgrounds. Unfortunately there is not much left to see :)

It's just an ATC I created for my mood :( ... according to the weather and the very gloomy light!

Two people, caught in a cage, watched by a bird, with dark clouds hovering above ..... quite a spooky atmosphere .....

Washi Tape .....

The City Crafters Challenge Blog has a real neat challenge this week: 
*Use Washi Tape on a Tag*
I love to do that. I used in on my tag and I created my little hearts with it ...

Mini Book - March 2013

Each year I create a mini book with *Picture of the month*. 

This is my pick for the month of March 2013, isn't she too cute?

Thank you Sveta!

My friend let me use some of her stamps, even dropped them into our mailbox early this morning, she's a doll.

I created this tag for her to go back along with her stamps.

I used the Tim Holtz technique for the background, not really my colours, but I had to try something different :)

Finally .....

.... my P(i)eace of mind is ready to hang on the wall.

Remember, some time ago I created a canvas and had a little fauxpas with my spelling. 

My friends at My Sketch World also had something to say to this pun and I decided to keep it the way it is. I printed all their comments and adhered them around my mixed media project. 

Today I painted a deep edge frame, now it's hanging in our Winter garden, looks great and it will bring a smile to my face every time I look at it :)

I was published ...

..... in the latest issue of the SCRAP ART ZINE, it is so sad the ladies gave up, I will miss them and the magazine so much, the only German magazine for scrappers around :(

My mixed media project:

This is a layout based on a sketch ....

... and finally a little lantern for a candle. 
I sent this to Andrea as a "farewell present" and also to have her take a picture of it. I failed ... :(
