Drowning in the Sea of Books

This arch is killing two birds with one stone: it´s perfect for today´s Gothic Arches challenge "Mermaids" as well as this week´s Layers of Color challenge "Summer Respite".
Can you think of a better vacation than reading everything you´ve always wanted to read?

There´s a Boy in the House

This week´s challenge on the "Dans ma maison il y a ..." blog is "un garcon". So here´s my little boy in a big house waiting for some scary things happening on his way to grow up.

Winged Things




When I received Letha´s journal "Winged Things" I´ve been astonished that there were all kinds of insects but no birds or inanimate things with wings in it. My first idea was to let something earthy fly amidst a crowd of birds, but then I decided to let my imagination fly ...

In the Neighborhood





... is the theme of Abby´s journal. I think that these pages speak for themselves telling a sad story of denunciation and denial.

Hello, Sunshine!

This week´s Wednesday Stamper´s theme was a good reason to dig out one of my oldest stamps from Stamp Francisco.

There´s Music in the House

This week´s challenge at the "Dans ma maison il y a ..." blog is "... de la Musique". The mixture of two German folk songs that are combined in my house is definitely too much for this little guy!

Family Affairs

... is the theme of a swap which challenges us to use pictures of our own ancestors - so here are some of mine!

Twinchies

I´ve made inchies, 3 x 3, 4 x 4, and 6 x 6 collages, Moo cards and other formats, but I´ve never done Twinchies before! These 2 x 2 inches collages are much fun to do, and they´re this week´s Wednesday Stamper´s challenge - give them a try!

Balloons

There isn´t a theme for the Gothic Arches challenge this week but as it´s Sunday I thought I´d make an arch for the Layers of Color challenge themed "Balloons".

Men

My Moo cards for this week´s Make a Moo or Two challenge theme "Men" illustrate attitudes that may be typical male - to think you can measure the meaning of life and to depend on time too much to have an independent adult life on your own. There are definitely more important things in your life than work.

Pictures of Berlin

I didn´t take many pictures during my vacation but I couldn´t resist these wonderful stained glass windows in the zoo aquarium of Berlin.





What to do with them? Well, this is what I did with a photo of a window in Heidelberg that I took in 1987.

Sisters

I have two sisters (and a brother), so this week´s Wednesday Stamper´s theme "Sisters" is one I never miss. This piece (about 4,6 x 6,5 inches) is completely stamped with stamps from Paperbag Studio, Zettiology, Inkadinkado, Character Constructions, and Hero Arts.

Variations




I have made these ATCs just for fun: I´ve bought the lovely main stamp during my vacation and wanted to try some variations on the theme.
I have used different parts of the same background paper and coloured with wax crayons, then added more stamps and more colouring with pencils and gel pens. These are all for trade.

By the Sea




No, I haven´t been by the sea for the last ten days, but I´ve made these ATCs for a swap themed "By the Sea".
