Look Inside

It´s that time of the year again when a well-heated living room with a comfortable armchair or sofa becomes more and more enticing ... and if you´re like me, the pile of books on the floor makes it even more attractive! (I´ve been surprised to find out that the English language knows the German word "gemuetlich" - what about you? do you know it?) For me, being outside in the cold dark hours is only acceptable if I can relax in a cozy atmosphere afterwards, and a comfortable chair is just what I need to feel at home. So here´s my ATC for this week´s TMTA challenge themed "furniture".

Texture Playing Again

For Nancy´s Texture challenge I´ve chosen this photo this week, rotated it, changed brightness and contrast, added her bottle texture, her wp texture, a copy of that one, her bench texture, and her 2b texture from the last challenge, using several blending modes . In the end the result was similar to an abstract painting, and the whole process has been a fun experience.

Grow

The November theme for our monthly 4 x 6 Zetti page exchange is "Flower", so I tried to let one grow in a Zetti way ...

Point of View

The theme for our monthly bird page exchange is Artist´s choice in November, so I just played with what came to my mind tonight.

It´s Grungy Monday Again!


For this week´s Grungy Monday challenge Linda has chosen another sparkling Tim Holtz technique, so I decided to make another Christmas card using one of Tim´s masks, Grungeboard and two colours of Perfect Pearls with Distress reinkers.
As always, my scanner doesn´t show the sparkle, so here´s a close-up photo.

Shabby Chic Christmas

Shabby Chic is this week´s theme for the SPA challenge, and as I´ve had this nice deer head in the (junk) mail today, I just had to use it for my second Christmas card, together with some ephemera, tissue tape, gesso, and stamps ... and a pair of chic antlers of course!

Far Far Away

I´ve been away for a few days but not THAT far away ... enough though to be able to make some Nick Bantock inspired ATCs about traveling to exotic places.
