WOYWW98 – Art Specially weekend

Afgelopen weekend was de Art Specially beurs in Zeist, zoals ik jullie vorige week heb verteld. Dus vandaag zijn al mijn inkopen op mijn bureaublad te vinden en ernaast zien jullie alle werkstukjes die ik daar heb gemaakt.

As I told you last week, there was a big stamp show, last weekend, in the Netherlands. So what you’ll find on my desk this Wednesday are all my “goodies” I’ve bought. Next to them you’ll find the crafts I’ve made there.


Maar laten we eerst eens beter gaan kijken naar de stempels. Dit jaar was ik op zoek naar stempels met als thema mode, sprookjes en teksten. Een van de mooiste dingen die ik heb gevonden lagen in de stand van Vilda Stamps uit Zweden. Je kunt ze vinden in het midden van mijn werkblad. Deze stempels zijn zo totaal anders dan de stempels die je hier normaal vindt.

But let’s take a closer look at the stamps. This year I was looking for stamps with fashion, fairytales and quotes as their theme. One of the best things I found were the Vilda Stamps. You can see them in the middle of my desk. They are so different from what I’ve often found here.

Iets heel anders, maar ook schitterend zijn de spulletjes aan de rechterkant van mijn werkblad. Deze spullen heb ik gekocht bij Treasure Crafts. Zij kwamen uit Engeland met een heleboel zelfgemaakte kaarten... en die waren allemaal even schitterend. Hierbij vind je ook een aantal prints van Lilly Of  The Valley (LOTV) die je kunt gebruiken om kaarten mee te maken.

And another good shot are the stamps and stuff at the right side of my desk. These I bought at Treasure Crafts. These ladies came from the UK with a lot of handmade cards and they were all gorgeous. I’ve also bought some prints from Lilly Of The Valley (LOTV) to make some of these cards they’ve shown.

Maar genoeg over de stempels. Wanneer je naar de linkerkant kijkt van mijn werkblad, vind je de werkstukken die ik heb gemaakt. Tijdens de beurs waren er verschillende mogelijkheden om make & takes te maken met diverse technieken. De mode-werkstukjes werden gegeven door Art Specially. Het landschap met de schapen is gemaakt tijdens een avondworkshop die werd gegeven door Charry Wijers van Treasure Crafts. Deze techniek sprak me enorm aan en je zult, in de toekomst, nog wel een paar kaarten met deze techniek terug gaan vinden op mijn blog.

So these are the stamps. When you take a look at the left side of my desk you’ll find some crafts I’ve made. You had the possibility to do different make & takes with different techniques. The fashion ones were given by Art Specially. The landscape with the sheeps was made in an evening workshop given by Charry Wijers from Treasure Crafts. I’ve really like this technique and you’ll be seeing some cards, made by me, in the future.


En tot slot mijn Mystery Project van vorige week. Mijn vriendin Sarah kwam, afgelopen weekend, ook naar de beurs en ik maakte dit Project voor haar. Het is een recycle boek waarin zij al haar gemaakte foto's en werkstukjes kan plakken. Sarah is ook een actief WOYWW blogger en wil je meer van haar zien ga dan vandaag eens kijken op haar blog. Door deze link LA-DE-DAH te volgen vind je haar verhaal van de Art Specially beurs.

Last but not least there was the Mystery Project (see post last week). My friend Sarah visited the craft show too and my Mystery Project was for her: A recycle book in which she can put all her small projects and pictures in. Sarah is an active WOYWW blogger too, so if you want to see more of her, pop up to her desk this Wednesday and read her story of Art Specially event. Just follow this link to LA-DE-DAH.



Als afsluiting van mijn verhaal wil ik jullie nog wat details laten zien van mijn recycle boek. Deze keer heb ik de foto's gemaakt in een nabijgelegen bloembollenveld, vol met tulpen. Veel plezier met deze voorjaarsexplosie uit Zonnemaire, Zeeland.




To end my story, I want to show you some details of the recycled book and… this time I’ve made these pictures in the nearby fields, full of tulips. So enjoy the fantastic spring here in the Netherlands:



Dat is het weer voor vandaag. En ben je nu nieuwsgierig geworden naar andere werkbladen met hun eigen verhaal, volg dan deze WOYWW link. Iedereen nog een happy & crafty wednesday gewenst.

Oh what lovely stash you bought! Your altered book is fantastic, I bet your friend just loved it and the tulip? Well they are my all time favourite flowers, must be my Dutch roots coming through there (my maiden name was De Beer) Coming to the Netherlands to see them in Spring is on my bucket list.

Hi Franks - all that lovely stash, oh my! Lucky you - the book is just beautiful and the fields of tulips almost made me cry for my childhood. We lived in Germany for a long time and the Dutch tulip fields were always a must to visit each Spring. Happy days. Thanks for calling by earlier in the week - sorry I'm a bit late hopping round this week! Di x
