Here are the latest additions to my 365 collection,
I got my inspiration from today's prompt 
from the icad2018 challenge

113-119/365somethings2018

In October 2016 I won a contest on Marit's blog, Marit's paper world
and these were my goodies.


I had them neatly stored away
but now it was time to give them some good use.

I used them to create some more collages for my 365somethings.








After making all these collages I got a bit sidetracked with reorganizing my collage supplies 
(a post on this will follow)
I will try to catch up some more this week.
But with a third completed already I am on the right track.

love her,
cherish her
and celebrate her on Mother's day



For this special person in my life 
I made this special card.

106-112/365somethings2018

This week I surrended myself to the wonderous world of collage.

Browsing through my collection of scraps, patterned paper, collage images,...
picking items that speak to me
arranging them in a pleasing way
glueing them down
and adding some color here and there









can you tell that I am totally falling in love with collaging!!!
IT IS SO MUCH FUN!!!
AND I found out that it is so easy to pick a limited amount of supplies 
(just a folder with some paper and a glue stick is already enough)
and sit yourself outside, in front of the tv,...
and create some collages.

Make sure you stay tuned for more of mine collages.

99-105/365somethings2018

With this series of indexcards I passed the border of 100 somethings! 
IMPRESSIVE!
(if I say so myself)
But on the other hand I am also a bit disappointed with myself 
because I let myself get behind with the challenge.
At this point I should be at #125,
but no panic still time to catch up

For this series I used some of the marbled backgrounds
and stencilled in black on them.

92-98/365somethings

I had so much fun the other day with the marbling, 
that I ran out and got some more colors,
and...
I had some even more fun :-)








The only down side with the Marabu marbling paints is their smell (they are solvent based)
and the limited time you get to play with the pattern.
Did some quick searching on the net and am amazed by the traditional marbling art
and am going to investigate that some more 
and who knows maybe order some of that material,
I'll keep you posted of course.
