ATC - Purse - Triptych

Another atc trade to show. Theme was time and normaly we are trading three atc's. My idea was some kind of triptych.. and... it finished and left as a purse to my tradepartner Hafitante.





Because i used a quote from Coco Chanel, i thought the purse had to fit her style a bit.
Some kind of timeless elegance
Closed front


Closed back with hidden velcro




The beautiful atc's i received in return are made by Carmen




...and she also stamped a nice card for me


Happy friday (:o)
 Have a nice and creative weekend

The book of ruination - steampunkish - fairytale

Oh my dear...this book was a hard road. I changed my mind so many times but i finally found a solution. This book will be my entry for SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge: Fairytales in our steampunk world.

Alice in Steampunk - Wonderland












As always, i started my cover with cardboard, duct - tape and some fabric strips, because i planned signatures inside at first


The Ruination Cover finished


I hope you like it (:o)
Thanks for your appreciated comments

Pirates

Well, this is my weekend contribution as i have to work tomorrow. The last month atc trade theme was about pirates and i received my atc's from  Firle
These are the beautiful atc's, she made for me




My trade - partner was Carmen and i've made a little book for her


This theme was a bit difficult because i don't own a stampset with a pirates



 I had the idea to try something digital, because my friend Mark creates a lot cool atc's with digital images


These atc's are a double digital gimmick with images i found at the internet


First i printed the map at the background with my inkjet printer .....


and i printed the images on top of the map.
Actually it was only a try, as i wanted to see how it works and to my surprise, i was very pleased about the look.



  I used some distress ink and a pen nip to colour some of them.



Happy weekend (:o)

Ruination Textur

Hi folks, how's going? Hope you are all well with this nice spring weather. Sun is shining with a lot wind, but i'm glad if it's not raining.
Today i want to show you another piece from the Ruination Workshop with Andy Skinner. Well, i still don't know what to do with it, but when the time is coming, i'll know. I don't wanted to leave it blank, that's why  i gave a box a colour treatment and placed my piece inside. So...i call it a wall - piece for now (:o)

Some pictures you have seen before




A close up to the texture which is called *Alien Skin*






I think, this piece will look great on a bigger canvas with more texture around it.
Maybe you have a good idea, too? Let me know then as i love to read your appreciated comments. (:o)

Happy Mail from Ana

After a 6 days work week, this happy mail brightened my day. These warmer days seems to make a lot of people ill and very tired in my case. Well, after a long sleep i used the sunshine today, to take pictures from my happy mail, i received from my dear friend Ana from Slovenia. She posted her book here. While i was unpacking her parcel, i had a feeling like a child with christmas.


Would you guess, what's in a shoebox size of 1,5 kg?
I can tell you, i am thrilled!!


This book is called *Love Nest* and i love it. I have seen the pictures of this beautiful book before, but you know the reality get's you mostly out of your shoes (:o)


This lovely nest on the cover is just stunning


Take a look at the unique inside pages




 In Germany we call it a Handschmeichler (:o) It's a german word for something like a stoneeeg. It is formed to enjoy you by touching it. Beeing very smooth pebbly it causes an haptic pleasure.


All the edges of the pages are so softly distressed


But that's not all. She also send me an unbelievable heavy - weight goody bag


So much generousity makes me speachless 
Thank youuuuuuu ♥


Here you see how i display my treasure


Thanks sooooo much Ana. You made me very, very happy
Have a nice sunday
xoxo
