Sandy said...

Was für bezaubernde Werke wieder von Dir liebe Viola.
Einfach traumhaft.

Sind das Schablonen oder Stempel ???

Huhu, liebe Viola, die Kissen sind wunderschön geworden. Image Transfer mit Teebaumöl war mir neu. Vielen Dank für den Tipp! Das muss ich unbedingt mal ausprobieren, denn Citra Solv ist ja hier leider nicht zu bekommen.
Die Pralinen waren sicher lecker, aber die Schachtel sieht ja nun nach Deiner Bearbeitung 1000 mal schöner aus als vorher. So eine Unterkunft würde sich jede Praline wünschen :-).
Ich drücke Dir die Daumen, dass Du am nächsten WE auf dem Flohmarkt mehr Erfolg hast als in Wuppertal und einige tolle Schätze nach Hause bringst.
Ganz viele, liebe Grüße

The cushions are so elegant and classy, just gorgeous. Transferred with tea tree oil??? Goodness, I use it in some of my soaps etc, but transferring prints, that is most definitely a new one to me.
The altered chocolate box is soooooooo pretty. I'd rather have the box than the contents anytime!

Wat zijn je kussens fantastisch! Die techniek wil ik ook graag leren maar begrijp er nog niets van. Misschien wil je het uitleggen? Ik bekijk je blog regelmatig en vind je stijl helemaal leuk! Groetjes, Gepke
