social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and please don´t pin my work on pinterest. thanks for respecting that.

*****if you also have that pain in the *** named comment verification... Susi fröbelsternchen helped me to solve it:
my blog layout is in german (da muss man die "kommentarposition" ändern auf "eingebettet"). but it should be possible by changing the "comment Position"(?) into "embedded"(?)... try it out...

fashion-conscious penguin

translates: "you should not always borrow my things"...
first i had thought about the words: "oh please tell me that Website!"...
cut out from a geolino Magazine (if i remember right).
"hot!" stamped with Alpha from rbbb
green dymo words printed with photoshop brushes.
when you enlarge: look at the other penguin that watches how the Little one gets ranted;)
well, mothers with daughters will probably know this Situation...

the lonesome deer

for this spread i took a page from the national geographic Magazine. i liked the mood (well, i´m happy not to be this lonesome deer in this winter landscape, grateful for my warm and cozy home). and i didn´t want to destroy the Feeling, so i kept the left page quite untouched (only washi tape, stamped with teesha moore Alpha; washi doesn´t hold stamp ink so well, so i traced the stamping over with an Overhead pen)
the Alpha on the right is from rubber Baby Buggy bumpers, the deer Skeleton is from stamp out cute.
linking it to art Journal journey
and to take-a-word: winter

ajj: i scream ice-cream

and another one for ajj

could have been a fast and easy one - but then i ended up searching for my tissue stamped ice-cones for at least a quarter of an hour (i had borrowed this stamp recently on a retreat... i knew i had These tissues and they could not be far away, and all other things were prepared... you know, drives you nuts;))
a catalog for frozen Food was slaughtered, and the "favorite list" was printed with help from this Generator (love it!)
