I altered a tin, it was a tin that had fish in it and after feeding it to the cats I cleaned it and thouhgt it might come in handy for a project someday.

Since the challenge theme of Hobbyshop Sandra isSummer, Sun, Sea and add texture I figuered to make a seahorse shadowbox. You can find the challenge here , it runs in July and August so still time to enter.

some catching up...

Hi all,

 I just came back from an awesome vacation in USA, I have been traveling there for 3.5 weeks and seen a lot of beautiful things.  If you want to see what I did on my travels you can go to my Travel you Tube Channel here.

I only had my phone with me so the videos are all shot and edited using my phone, that has not as many options as my computer so it was hard to edit and add music etc. to the videos, I hope you like them anyway, I tried to make them as good as possible.

While I was away I did post videos, I had schedualed them before I left and that went well, glad it did because it turns out I can not put videos live from my phone, no idea why that did not work, maybe I need to download another app, maybe it is just the phone and you tube don't like eachother.

I do know my phone does not like blogger, I can do basic things on my phone, but adding a picture to a post seems to much to ask, that's why ther was nothing happening here.

But am back now and promise to be a better blogger.

In this post I will add the things I have allready shown on my you tube craft channel while I was away, I will add links to the videos so you can see how it it made, and add a list of the product used to each project.

so here we go:

I did make some projects without video's see below

This art journal page was easy because the back ground ws made using left over paint from other prodcts and cleaning of stencils used in other projects, fun to see what je get if you just add the random cleaning things togehter, there is crarckle, stencila and paint it different colors, all Deco Art products btw.
TheSailor is a stamp by Chocolate Baroque / Speshink., I stamped it colred it using pencils ( Derwent Inktense) cut it out and glued it to the background. the tekst stamp is by Tim Holtz.

Another tag using the Tim Holtz paperdolls, the wings are from a decou page sheet, and the gears are a Tim Holtz Thinlets die. The bricks are made using a stencil and modeling paste, in the background there is some stenciling too. All paints and modeling paste used are Deco Art Products, see picture too see what I  used.

This is a page in my handmade envellope journal, see video here (the video explains all backgrounds too), the devil is a digital stamp by Rick St.dennis, it was colored using alcohol markeres (Twinmarkers) cut out and glued to the background using Deco Art  Matte  Medium. The word "fear"is a stamp by Stampendous/ Andy Skinner.
