Let us dance

 Good Morning, 

The idea that summer offers us long evenings led me to create this page. What could be nicer than to wear a light, flowing dress for dancing till late? I used for this page: Butterfly DressWords to Dazzle and Sparkle, Distresss Crayons, stencil, baby whipe, Archival and watercolor pencils.

Summer hugs to you all,  Magda

Not only Ink Pad


I share with you today the result of my curiosity and consequently my attempt. After I draw a sunflower with charcaol, I had the idea to see how this medium would react  stamping with it instead of using an  Ink Pad.  Well, I am  satisfied and here below I post the outcome of my "strange idea" 

I rubbed the willow spindle on the stamps Pretty Poppies and Birthday Words and stamped. I used  charcoal pencil for coloring the poppy and scribbled in the background. 

Thank you for passing by and have a go if you had loved this idea, hugs

Welcome back,

I am sharing with you my second project for May.  This page has several layers of blended colors in the background, on which I stenciled with water and Distress Ink Pad. The glued mat is stamped with Archival Jet Black and I colored all the images with watercolours. You can find all the images in the same plate " Garden House".

Thanks for passing by, hugs

Spring Cards


Hi girls,  I have two fresh cards to share with you. I used the following rubber plates:  Lily, Hydrangea Tag and Essence of Nature. On a white cardstock mat I stamped the images with Archival Jet Black, colored all the flowers with Brusho. For the background of both cards, I used wet on wet and wet on dry layer washes. 

I am quite happy with the end result and hope you too. Thanks for passing by, hugs

Stained Glass Window


I am starting today a new Journaling and I share with you the inspiration I had watching the TV show of Chocolate Baroque on The Craft Store Channel. 

At first I stamps the poppy of Pretty Poppies rubber stamp sheet A5  using Archival Jet Black, after that I divided the page in 8 unequal parts, stamped accordingly the individual stamp On the Tiles,  marked each section with a waterproof black pen and colored the page with watercolours. I let all dry and finished the page attaching the sentiement using Words to Dazzle stamp.


Thanks for passing by,  hugs

I had to get free myself as if I were caged in a frame and looked out of a window. Suddenly my thoughts turn into imagination and materialize in this project.  

I stamped "Mosaic Flower"  with Archival Ink Jet Black, and colour it with watercolors. A thick coat of white gesso borders the image on which I put some self-adhesive mesh pieces and a label I created stamping the sentiment of "Mushroom House" on white cardstock. The little spots on the flowers are done by flicking with the brush white diluted gesso 

Thanks for passing by, hugs

Happy Place


 Good Morning,

Valentine Day is coming and here below I have for you a quick Step by Step, as idea for your make.

1. Stamp "French Heart" directly on your page with Carnation Red Archival Ink  

2. Stamp it again on a White Cardstock, cut it exactly as a mask and put it on you red heart

3. Stamp all around "On the Tiles" background stamp with Archival Jet Black

4. Cut the leaves and stems of your mask (point2) as a decoupage and color them with a green watercolor and glue them on the first stamp 

5. Stamp the sentiment of "Word of Love", cut it in pieces and color the edges with the same green colour you used at point 4

6. Glue the sentiments as shown 

7. Highlight the red flower with some crystal glitter.

Hugs,   Magda

I think it is time to have something new in the wardrobe, but before going for shopping  a browse in a haberdashery brought me to have this result.   As you can see here below stencils, Distress Ink Pads, "Haberdashery""Floral Mannequins" and "The Sewing Room" rubber stamps gave life to3 ATCs and a card.

Who of you would like to join me for shopping ?   

Thanks for passing by, hugs
