Rubber Dance August theme challenge

Hello and welcome, today there is a new Challenge over at Rubber Dance blog. The theme from today until the 31. of August is Embossing. This means you can enter projects with all kind of embossing on it. This can be heat or dry embossing or embossing paste.

Here is my inspiration for you:

I created a tag using the beautiful Vintage Script, Buzzy Bee and Antique Botanicals.
The background I have embossed with Brown Distress ink and blank embossing powder. 

Then I had Distress paint down on my desk and led the tag through this. 

I stamped and embosset the flowers with blue and purrple  Distress ink and blank embossing powder, and the Buzzy Bee with black sparkle embossing powder, then fuzzy cut them. I glued them down with 3D glue pad. 

I hope to see you in the Challenge. Take a look at the inspiration from my teamies and then join in.

When you order stamps from Rubber Dance shop please use the code ASFreeShip  on all orders over 15 Euros, and you will get free shipping on your entire purchase.

See you soon. 

Hugs, Anita

My personal art journal page - Tell through art

Hello and welcome my lovely friends 

I am so glad that you are here. Today I want to show you a art journal page as I have done in connection with Dina Wakleys "Show us your MEdia" challenge as of August 16, it's about showing what you say to yourself. And this is my personal  art journal page with my sayings:

This page is in my wonderful Dina Wakley media journal (which I love), and it is burlap. I used my scribble sticks in colours Blackberry and Black to scribble around the midle, this to illustrate my surroundings and thoughts and feelings from time to time. 

I have sewn the card in the middle and left the top open so I could use it as a pocket. And in my pocket I have another card with my sentence. I have made a hole in the top and threaded on a ribbon as I have colored myself. The wonderful colours on my biggest card is Tim Holt's Distress Oxide. All of the stamps is from Rubber Dance, and the mushrooms is colored with Faber Castell pens.

 I say it to my self all the time - "Today I choose to be happy", why is that you would maybe ask. Why exactly that sentence? Well, thats because  I have and have had many challenges in life and if I can not keep my mood up, if I do not manage to hold on my good mood then everything ends. This art journal page is wery personal for me, but I do not believe in secrecy and to hide things. Why not be open and honest? 

I suffer from Myalgic Encephalopathy, and it is a disease with many challenges without going into it in detail. But those of you who have the same disease or have any close who suffer from the same know what I'm talking about. 

That's why the sentence to my self: "Today I choose to be happy".

Thank you so much for stopping by. If you have any questions, no matter what, do not hesitate to ask. I respond with pleasure.

I wish you a wonderful and creative day!

Hugs, Anita

Artful collage mix piece for my final post for Rubber Dance

Hello and welcome,
today it is a sad day for me. It is my last and final blogpost for Rubber Dance. I have been with them for two years now, and as everthing else this has also an end. Fortunately, I'm not completely out of the heat, because I've been asked if I want to make inspiration for the challenges of the month, and of course I said yes to that. So you will hopefully continue to be inspired by me on the Rubber Dance's blog twice a month.

Obviously you will find me here on my own blog and on instagram so just follow along. Maybe there will be more blog posts here in the future :-)

Hop over to Rubber Dance and check out my final post. There is also a step by step on how I did this piece of art inspired by all the wonderful Rubber Dance stamps.

Thank you for stopping by. See you soon.

Hugs, Anita
