I've been creating with the Katzelkraft stamps again : I 'm still adoring them. The blog from Katzelkraft is not active at the moment (due to private circumstances), but I will post every week for a while here on my blog and on Facebook with stamps from Katzelkraft..

Weer eens bezig geweest met Katzelkraft stempels : ze blijven mooi. Het blog van Katzelkraft staat nu even op non-actief (door prive omstandigdheden), dus zal ik als vanouds de komende tijd elke week hier op mijn blog en op Facebook wat laten zien met stempels van Katzelkraft..

On the round 4 inch gelliplate I made a gelliprint with distress inks. I stamped the cat with Archival ink, heat embossed it with clear, and colored it with watercolor pencils.
I stamped the script with the Archival ink too, but also with the earlier used Distress inks for the print, as shown. 

Op een gelliplate een achtergrondje gemaakt met behulp van de 10 cm in doorsnede ronde gelliplate en 2 Distress inkt kleuren.
 Daarna de kat gestempeld met Archival inkt en het ge-embossed met clear; gekleurd met aquarelpotloden.
Tekst gestempeld in zowel de donkere inkt, maar ook met de zelfde eerder gebruikte kleuren Distress inkt. Goed weekend verder!

Who said playing with Nuance isn't fun ?

Creating backgrounds with Nuance powders and a (custom made) gelliplate is, as far as I am concerned.

Time for windy autumn days..

Playing with Nuance is awesome, but it's also a bit tricky, as you never know what happens to the powders. Not on a gelliplate anyway. So, just play!

Mixed Media Art Journal page

HI !
My first post at Art Anthology is up today! 
I am thrilled and honoured to be able to show you a creation with some gorgeous products from Art Anthology!!

I created a double page in my art journal.
That meant play time, of course!
And messy fingers!

I've made this art journal by recycling an old book, by ripping every second page out of the book, and gluing 2 pages to each other, and I've torn all the edges off the paper.
That makes every page unique to start with!
