You Can Dance

We have a new challenge up and running over at our

This challenge we're sponsored by


I've made another page for my art journal and this time I used a part of the image called

De background I've made with a siliconmat (used the back), mines from dr. oetker.
I had this mat for years, when my kids we're still small I sometimes would bake cakes and decorate them. That's why I had the mat.
On facebook someone said she used a siliconmat as a cheap alternative for a gelly plate, I just had to try. So I went on hands and knees to find this one all the way in the back of my kitchen cupboard

Here are a 2 backgrounds I've made with it and I must say, it works just perfectly

The bottom one is the one I used for this project.
I was realy happy with the colours yet, so I added two more layers of paint over it and because it picked up some of the left over paint from the previous print you can find that back on the final background.

The rest of the background is done by using a few different stamps and various inks.
The butterflies are colored using neocolor II
The border was directly stamped on the page, so to make the coloring solid, I've used posca pens
Text I found with google, printed and glued down.

The image was colored using copics and fuzzy cut.

That's her name........ Rose
Rose is a digi-stamp by the artist LeAnn
You can find her shop HERE

I've created a page for my journal with her.

For the background I've used a coloring page from 1 of those cheap 2 euro adult coloring books.
Gave it an acrylic was and colored over it with FC Polychromos.
Added some texture with wall filler using stencils and also added a bit of stamping.
When that was done, I've added it to a piece of packaging carton to make it a bit more sturdy.
Added rose and text.
For the border I used black gesso

Valentine with a wink

Hi everyone
Theres a challenge at the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog
Theme: For the one you Love

Well as the one I love has been very ill and we've gone through some realy rough times, I 
figured a bit of a different "valentines"card would be in place.

Here's my make for this challenge.

I've printed the image with my laser printer onto strathmore toned paper and colored the image with Faber Castell Polychromos.
For the white I've used Luminance 001 because I like the white of that pencil better then the polychromo's one and a white gel pen.

The inside of the card says:

I totaly figured this sentiment matches us perfectly!

Bloobel Sweet Dreams

Good morning,

Yesterday in between study and writing essays I felt like sorting my weekly spread.
Because today is february first, this weeks spread is "1 sided"
Thursday feb 1st will continue after the month layout, so that'll be for the next 
image that I want to colour.

Here's my make from yesterday, using the new release stamp 

She fits perfect on this spread as tuesday I had a day of school and been sleepin most of the day :P
The right side of the spread has been made from vellum and washi tape.
The sentiment is rub on and I've choosen that one, to remind myself that it is ok to make mistakes and shouldn't be ashamed of it.
I'm a bit of a nerdie, like to get everything right the first time and like good grades, but sometimes before gettin things right, you need to make mistakes.
It's also a reminder to myself that it's ok to show others you make mistakes, that you're NOT PERFECT!

Hope you enjoy my spread
Thank you so much for dropping by

Planner Spread

Good evening everyone,

These days I'm so busy with work and school, that I've decided to use two planners.
I have a color crush mint, that I use for all appointments and as a work planner.
The Heidi Swapp Life is Good, I use for everything school related.
I do write down my shifts in there, but thats it, that planner is entirely for schoolwork and... coloring :)

Today I want to show you the spread I've made for Monday January 22nd 2018 - Sunday January 28th 2018.
I've used this cute unicorn from Bugaboo Stamps, it's such an adorable digi stamp.

I've used my Faber Castell Polychromo's for coloring and the white Gelly Roll 08 by Sakura

To add a bit more festive colors to the page, but still leavin space to add some notes, I've used 2 different patterns of washi tape.

I just adore this cutie, pretty sure this one will be printed more often.

Thank you so much for dropping by

Bloobel Digi Stamp Doctor

I've been working during the Christmas celebrations
I do not mind, love my work and love the residents on our floor.

However, when I came home from work on the 26th, I didn't feel too well, but figured
it'll be fine in the morning.
Needles to say, that didn't happen.
On thursday it was time to ring the docs and drop by, so as you can see in my planner, this
new Bloobel digistamp DOCTOR is a perfect fit.

Had 6 days off, but been in bed for all those days.
Unfortunately, I had to call in sick yesterday as eventhough the doctor gave me 
anti-biotics, it didn't help much.
Went back to the docs today and goin in for a ct-scan tomorrow.

Hope you like my planner spread with DOCTOR

Thank you for dropping by

Purrfect Life Kitty 2

It has been a while, I know!!!!
Gosh, with school, work and the health issues of my daughter, there's never enough time to do everything you want to do :(
I have been crafting, but didn't keep up with the blogposts

However, today I want to share with you a card I've made using the digi stamp 

There are a total of 4 Kitty stamps and a SVG set.
You can find them HERE
Both come with the clipart, if you want a quick card, you can always just print and cut the clipart to use on your project.

For my card I've colored the image using my copic markers
The papers are from a cheap paperpad, border die I bought for less then 2 euro at a cheap shop here in the Netherlands, it is similar to the dollar store and poundland.
The papers have glitters, but unfortunately you can's see that on the photo

I love these kittens, 
here are a few other cards I've made with them

I think these would be perfect in your planner as well

You can find Marjorie Ann Designs on Facebook as well here:
