Up in Flames challenge part 2

Here is another project I made for the Up in Flames Challenge at Smudgy Antics blog

I had this idea to make some sort of smashbook/ planner for the 31 days of Halloween 2011

The cover of the book has burned edges, I used brown cardstock with a leather look and inked it. Used stamps and gold embossing powder for the title. The bat on the cover and all the bats inside the book are from "a little bit batty" digi stampset by

The first page is a calender of october, where I can put all the project names and when the are posted on my blog, so that I can plan ahead.
The rest of the pages have the same lay-out (so I won't put pics in this post from every page but there is a link to photobucket below), I can make notes, make a shoppinglist for supplies needed for the project and on the blanc pages there will be a photo of the finished project. (I'm so organized LOL)

Hope you like it an will join the challenge at Smudgey Antics Blog

dali museum

We've been to the Dali museum in Figueres, we had to wait 20 minutes to get in the museum, and that was not so bad, when we got out of the museum the waiting time was over an hour. We also visited the Dali Jewels.,
Here is a link to the photo's, enjoy:

dali museum

you can take pictues in the museum, but you are not allowed to use flash, so that explains some pictures are a bit dark, (sorry). I wish I could have taken more photo's of the paintings but that was to dark.

Cards for Ryan

I got this link from the Smeared Ink forums, cards for Ryan Ryan, was involved in an accident on a Saturday afternoon in April 2011 in New Orleans, while riding his bike to meet up with friends. The facts of the accident remain unclear but Ryan did sustain a brain injury. As a side note - Ryan moved from CA to NOLA after Katrina to live there and help/work with the relief efforts to help the citizens of NOLA rebuild.

So we are asked to send cards, see link for details.

Here is my card for Ryan.

smeared and smudged blog hop

Welcome to the Smeared and Smudged member blog hop. If you have been following the hop, you would have come from Ikes site. If you just happened to be here, please head over to Tori's blog and start from there!

This is my first blog hop, so I'm very excited...

Theme is PAINT.
Just finished my project yesterday because I didn't know what to make. I decided to use an canvas and just see what would happen LOL.
And here it is....

I painted the back of the canvas with Gesso, and put the bat digi (from smeard ink, a little bit batty digi set)in the Gesso and let it dry a bit.
Than I used liquid watercolor paint and got splasy and gooey. Used my heatgun to dry the gesso and paint.
For the frame I used a plastic lace sticker that I used as a mask, put black acrylic paint over it and removed the mask.

Rondje hei

Ik probeer regelmatig hard te lopen (dat hard moet je niet te serieus nemen LOL). Dat probeer ik in iedergeval 3 x in de week te doen. Nee ik vind het niet echt leuk, ik moet mezelf er echt toe zetten. Maar als ik dan eenmaal loop en het is droog en er is helemaal niemand op de hei dan is het eigenlijk best leuk. Ik hoop dan dat ik een ree tegen kom en dat gebeurd ook regelmatig. Ze zijn niet bang en je kunt er dicht bij komen. Maar op de hei lopen ook andere beestjes, nl deze.........

en die zijn best groot, eigenlijk zijn ze heel erg groot. En ze hebben ook hoorns, hele grote. Ik weet ook zeker dat ze veeeeel harder kunnen lopen dan ik (nou dat is ook niet zo heel moeilijk, maar toch). En soms gaan ze precies met zijn allen op het pad staan waar ik altijd op loop, het pad op de terug weg, als je er al een aardig stukje op hebt zitten. Het pad dat je niet terug wil lopen want dan ben je 2x zo lang onderweg, precies daar moeten ze dan staan.

En de hei is best groot,er zijn zoveel plaatsen waar ze ook kunnen gaan staan, maar dat doen ze niet........ik denk dat ze weten dat ik dan geen andere keus heb dan vlak langs ze heen te lopen en dat ze weten dat ik ze heel groot vind en dat ik ook weet dat ze veel harder kunnen lopen dan ik.......

Maar ik laat me niet kennen, ik doe net of ik ze niet zie en trek een sprintje richting wildrooster (want als ik daaroverheen ben dan kunnen ze me niet meer te pakken krijgen) en dan kijk ik voor de zekerheid even om of ze niet achter me aan komen......

Maar eigenlijk kijken ze niet op of om en zijn ze alleen maar druk met grazen, maar toch......

Het blijft een heel avontuur zo'n rondje hei.

(sorry voor de kwaliteit van de foto's maar die heb ik heel snel met mijn mobiel genomen, van eigenlijk iets te ver weg:-).....)

Hier mijn bijdrage voor Smudgefest, helaas heb ik dag 1 gemist maar dan begin ik toch gewoon met dag 2 ;-)

Here my entry for Smudgefest, I missed day one so I will start by day 2 ;-)

Er moet tenminste 1 stempel van Smeared Ink worden gebruikt in de uitdaging.
Ik heb een vleermuis uit de set "A little bit Batty" gebruikt Smeared Ink .

The challenge is Terrifying Tuesday, you have to use at least one stamp from Smeared Ink. I used the awesome Bat from the digiset "A Little bit Batty"

Als basis heb ik geel cardstock gebruikt en een embossing folder van Tim Holtz, deze heb ik 2 keer gebruikt. 1 keer voor het cardstock en 1 keer voor spiegelkarton. Met het spiegelkarton maak je de antiek zilver look van het skelet. Het cardstock is met verschillende kleuren distress inkt bewerkt. Ik heb de vleermuis geprint en uitgeknipt en ingekleurd daarna met foam tape opgeplakt zodat hij echt uit de kaart komt. Het skelet is met foamblokjes opgeplakt zodat er een 3D effect ontstaat.

The base of the card is yellow cardstock, I used the embossing folder from
Tim Holz twice, once for the cardstock and one time for the skeleton in Faux antic silver. I used some distress ink on the cardstock. Cut out the bat and skeleton an attached them to the card with pop dots to create 3D look

hier een foto van de zijkant dan kun je het 3d beter zien.

On this foto you can see the 3d better
