Filou - Home Alone


I'm back with a new and funny inspiration for you. 
That's our dog, it's a sheltie boy and his name is Filou.
 He is the sunshine in my family, always in a good mood and ready for a joke. 
Our cool dog loves to sit down on comfortable couch, 
sometimes I parked my computer there. 
And what should I say, he is very inquisitive :-) 

I used a lot of various colours and texture mediums from DecoArt 
on this shadow frame in Altered Art.
Basis was simple package material with corrugated cardstock.
The roof was made of two cardboard strips, 
which were bent in the middle and glued on with a heat gun.

used materials
DecoArt crackle paint white
Modeling paste whiteFluid
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics 'Cobalt Turquoise Hue', 'Carbon Black',
'Dark Grey', 'Titanium white', 'English Red Oxide'
Chipboards from Scrap FX
Embossing powder from Emerald Creek Dare

some details


So let's start with our first challenge of the year - it is - as usual - an

themed challenge and all kinds of projects (except digitally created ones) are welcome! So show us your tags, cards, art journal pages, canvases, altered objects, drawings, paintings, sketches....whatever you're up to as long as it fits our challenge themes steampunk or industrial.

Have fun and Happy crafting!

Winter Blues

Hello friends!

You should create something with a spot of blue.

Bei uns heißt Winterblues aber auch soviel wie Winterdepression und die kann man bei unserem grauen und trüben Novembernebelwetter auch bekommen. Eigentlich sollte es zu dieser Jahreszeit richtig kalt, verschneit und manchmal auch sonnig sein, Fehlanzeige,
 also was tun um nicht im tiefen Loch zu versinken?! 

Richtig :-) werkeln ist angesagt, man zaubert sich also seine eigene Winterwunderwelt!



Falls ihr Fragen habt, jederzeit gern!
Ich wünsche euch ein wunderschönes kreatives Wochenende!

I was inspired from the story of this wonderful paper sheet 'Snowball fight'.
 Have you seen this little boy at the lower right edge ? !

Yes it's wintertime, the first snow is being celebrated immensely, 
enjoying building a snowman, ice-skating or having a funny snowball fight.
Always a pleasure and not only for children :-)

 Clock face stamp  
is also perfectly for edge stamping

I colored  the Fractured time 
chipboards with silver metal paint and used this pieces as frame and highlighted with some paper cut outs like clockfaces and cabochons

 I cut up BBQ Mesh
in several parts and used this as base for the year numbers

isn't this chipboard Suspended time   wonderful?!, I was immediately in love

and decided to use one of my favourite embossing powders

Happy New Year


 A very happy New Year to you all, and a warm welcome to the January inspirations
at Maja Design.
I hope that the new year is off to a good start for you!
May it be peaceful, joyful, healthy
and very creative :-) !

  which  Maja Design papers I used can you see here

I create a very simple layout because the paper alone gives all the magic effect. 

As I saw the wonderful globus in the Denim & Friends Collection I thought, fabulous that's just the right paper sheet for this theme and so cut out this circle from 'Globetrotter' and used 'Sneakers bs' as background paper.

some details

I love the color combi with accents of light brown and some glitter and sparkle elements.

This project was so much fun to create and I love the scene that you can build up, using all this wonderful papers from this collection.
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in. 
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dinner for One

Hello friends!

Do you know the comedy TV sketch 'Dinner for One' also known as The 90th birthday?
It's very funny and a big tradition in Germany to watch this on New Year's eve every year.
I saw this motif on tissue paper and I admired the wonderful colors and thought very good,
 this must be a new altered project.

- Just for FUN -

I used a lot of DecoArt colors and textures for the frame:
Chalky Finish paints - Yesteryear, Artifact, Relic and Rustic
Wheathered Wood Crackle Medium
Creme wax Deep brown
Modeling Paste Black
 Mixed Media Stencil 'Old film'

I hope it's a little inspiration for you to try some other techniques and styles,
I love this time in my laboratory :-)!

Simon says 'Party' Monday challenge
Celebrate 2018 - be happy

!Have a healthy start into the New Year!
xx Kerstin xx
