a bit scary and a cute monster page

Ok this is a bit scary even for me (yes I hear you guys thinking, huh?? what can scare you??, you're on the dark side. Trust me, I do get scared sometimes LOL)

I will get you the pics first

I agree, these aren't very scary pics.......but..........the idea that I will be starting teaching classes at Koffie Kaartje is a little bit scary in a good way LOL.
First class will be all about making these tags, that will be in November, you can sign up at the shop.
What I used to make them:
some flowers and charms
Marianne Design clear stamps
archival jet black ink
Next one is another Art Journaling page, I used a Rick St.Dennis digi called  Goblin Gus my Gelli plate and Deco Art Americana Acrylic paints Calypso blue, Sour Apple and some left overs from a previous print. Quote came from the net.
The markers used are Edding 8400 cd/dcd and blue ray marker for the zentangle frame and the lettering is Edding 780 paint marker. Image is coloured using Caran d'ache luminance 6901 pencels
O and some cool news  for Dutch RSD Rubber fans (and maybe also for our neighbour countries)about the RSD Rubber stamps that are available at I Brake for Stamps, you can now also order them at Koffie Kaartje, they are not in the online shop yet but you can contact the store to order, saves postage.
I will enter the tags in the following challenges  i hope layers of paint will count, there are lot's of them on the tags
I will enter the AJ page into the following challenges challenge 59 anything goes or frame it; the AJ page's got a zentangled frame
