My Tag...12 Tags of 2013/November

The weeks pass, and does not ressemble. I've had some time to make a tag for Tim Holtz Challenge - 12 Tags of 2013.

Les semaines se suivent et ne se ressemblent pas puisque j'ai déjà terminé le tag de novembre pour le challenge de Tim Holtz.





Have a nice day...

My Tag...12 Tags of 2013/October

It's all about time....

Tim Holtz challenge for october is all about Halloween...Well - Halloween was yesterday. So I did a tag using the technique explained on his blog but not using Halloween theme.

As W. Penn said "Time is what we want most, but what we use worst".

Anyway, here it is:


Tout est une question de temps...
Le challenge de Tim Holtz en octobre avait pour thème Halloween. Mais bon...Halloween c'était hier. Alors j'ai fait mon tag en utilisant les mêmes techniques que celles qu'il a utilisées et décrites sur son blog mais j'ai choisi un autre thème. Comme dit W. Penn "le temps c'est dont nous avons le plus besoin mais ce que nous utilisons le plus mal"...


As I said...It's all about time ;)

See you soon,


Comme je le disais plus haut...Tout est une question de temps ;)
A très bientôt,

Childhood memories ;)


So, let's create another one...

CC 102 DAY 4

I'm not usually working with alcohol Inks. That's why day 4 at Creative Chemistry 102 is a VERY good opportunity to give them a try.

Faux Patina Technique


Ombré & Faded Layers

I had fun but it's still not my favourite technique. By now I can better appreciate how gorgeous are the tags/cards of those who can do it!

Have fun all the journey long ;)

Bientôt Noël ;)

J'ai fait une petite carte de Noël, si, si! Je vous assure, ça n'est pas une blague!
Irishteddy, le magasin où je me fournis habituellement organise un challenge et je me suis dit que je pourrais présenter quelque chose. Et voilà ma carte de Noël...

Malheureusement, mon appareil photo est toujours en vacances, ce qui fait que la qualité de la photo est moindre. Mais bon, ca donne quand même une idée.

Matériel utilisé: papier dylusions, Distress inks (aged mahogany, brocken china, dusty concord, faded jeans, forest moss, mowed lawn, mustard seed, peeld paint, salty ocean, spiced marmalade, tumbled glass, vintage photo & walnut stain), Perfect pearls mists, pages de livres, eau, étampes (nom inconnu!), colle, cabochons en verre fusé que je fais moi-même!

A bientôt,

Cui Cui

I was a bit short on time this last two weeks. And I'm more than happy to finished my page right now for the Craft Barn Challenge - just on time. I choose the word «bird» resp. «birds».
I searched for free picture on wikimedia commons. I choose this four and then cut them out and pasted them to the page...

Birthday cards for men...

Hi bloggers,
I must say, I usually have a very hard time making a card for a man but I made this one and I'm quite happy with the result. 
The handwriting part comes from a very old document I heritated. I scanned a part of it and used distress ink (vintage photo) to make this vintage look.
 
Bonjour tout le monde,
Je trouve toujours difficile de faire une carte peronnalisée pour un homme. En voilà une que je trouve assez réussie et qui j'espère plaira à son destinataire.
Le texte manuscript en arrière-fond provient d'un contrat de vente qui date de 1887. J'ai scanné une partie et je l'ai imprimée sur un papier beige. Je l'ai ensuite "veilli" avec du distress ink (vintage photo)

Autre matériel utilisé: Vanilla Tag, Embossing Folders Tim Holtz (Clock and Steampunk), papier brun ondulé (malheureusement je ne connais pas la source), distress Ink (scattered straw, mustard seed, salty ocean, faded jeans, black soot)




A une prochaine pour une autre carte ou un challenge :)

Un jour de pluie...

L'avantage des jours de pluie c'est que je peux m'installer dans mon atelier sans mauvaise conscience ;)
J'en ai profité pour préparer la page de juin  de mon Art journal et j'y ai mis toutes les couleurs que je ne voyais pas dehors...




Material used: Dylusions, distress ink, acryl paint, black marker, selfmade stamps, See-D's stamp (label)

Est-ce à cause de ces couleurs vives? Je ne sais pas, mais aujourd'hui le soleil est revenu et je vais reprendre le chemin de mon jardin.

Bonne fin de journée à tous,

K like Kakemono

Pour le Alpha challenge de cette quinzaine de chez Craft Barn (lettre K), j'ai choisi un mot que je ne connaissais pas du tout: Kakemono. Ce challenge sympa sert aussi à cela: découvrir des mots nouveaux ;)
J'ai utilisé un pochoir que j'avais depuis déjà pas mal de temps et que je n'avais pas encore eu l'occasion de tester.

This page is for the actual Alpha Challenge of «K» over at the Craft Barn. I chose the word «Kakemono» - I had seen some before, but didn't know the name for this. It's fun to learn new words ;)

Material used: silk paper, bamboo sticks, Marabu Stencil (Wellness), Rico stamp (rose tendril), Distress Inks (black soot, festive berries)




I wish you all a nice week and a lot of fun while creating...
