Not Your Ordinary Dolls…or Dresden Doll

CHA and Paperworld left me with a couple of things to play – nothing more fun then putting some of those things together- including a really bad quality – nevertheless-cracking-me-up-photo of Anna and me.


I wanted the background look like an old club/poster wall – grungy and all :) …I think I succeeded LOL


The Dresden Doll is actually my first mold with Resin – I do have to redo the mold as there is a slight crease right on the face- but I wanted to use the first one anyway and I like it a lot. I had saved my little Dresden Doll FOREVER hoarding it for the best possible occasion and now…HARHAR – I just make more ….insert evil scientist laugh.





So that’s it…I got my grunge on :)

Other than that- working on a brand new Über*Media Online Workshop right now- actually two :) So stay tuned.

Have an awesome day!

DT Work: Tattered Angels and Prima Marketing

This month the national DTs of Prima and Tattered Angels teamed up and I decided to join since I love Prima and also teach a lot connecting both manufacturers.

Diesen Monat haben sich die nationalen Designteams von Prima und Tattered Angels zusammengetan – und ich habe beschlossen einfach mitzumachen, da ich ja die Prima Produkte sehr mag und auch oft Workshops unterrichte, die beide Produkte highligthen.

I showed you this Apron already *Make Art*

Diese Schürze habe ich Euch schon gezeigt *Make Art*


If you want to know how I created this apron hop on over here.

Wenn Ihr wissen wollt, wie ich diese Schürze gemacht habe- dann schaut hier.

And then some layouts./ und ein paar Layouts

*Yes Dude*


Using the Exclusively Heidi Screen and Glimmer Mist.

Journaling: Yes Dude, you really asked me a couple hours ago if I would marry you :) Scared now? It was an amazing day in Paris

*Life Hearts You*


Journaling: Some days it is hard to believe – some days are just hard – some days never go by – but…true is always: Life Hearts You

I love the new Goldfoil Tags- it is so fun to use Glimmer Mist, Chalkboard and Glimmer Glam over it.


I used a brush and dipped it into Glimmer Mist to add little drops to the Flower Stamp from the Exclusivley Heidi Clear Stamp Set as berries.


I also used two different Glimmer Mist Colors and a brush to paint in “Life” on the Bingo Board.


*Who are You?*


This layout is about my aunt Waltraud who always stood in the shadow of my very lifely grand uncle Walter and his sister my aunt Margot. Just the last years I learn what an amazing woman she is  – funny and lively! Love her!

Here I painted over a piece of corrugated cardboard with acrylic paints and sprayed them with Glimmer Mist and then ripped some of the layer off again to reveal the texture and kraft color. I used the Butterflies from the Framed Font Set and colored them with Glimmer Mist and Chalkboard – then rubbed them in Ink to reveal the embossed areas even more. I used some of the new wonderful Goldfoil Tag which I had treated also with Glimmer MIst and Glimmer Chalkboard behind the Butterflies.


And for next month we have some real fun stuff coming up!

Nächsten Monat haben wir ein paar richtig coole Sachen im Ärmel ;)

Wishing you a gorgeous day!
