Sketchabilities August 30 ~ sketch#54

Hi you guys,

Another reveal from Sketchabilities. This is the sketch for this time:
And here is my take on it:
I used a picture I made this summer while we where away for a midweek on a bungalow park. There was a show with birds of prey and I was able to take some great pics.

The flower I made with a Gluber and some ribbon. Did you use one already? I just love them!!

Take a look at the reveal at Sketchabilities to see the work from the other DT members.
There is also a DT call going on, so ..... take your change to be on this great DT!

Love, Miranda

An old love.....

Yesterday I decided that I want to breath new life in an old love.
I had to make it free from years of dust, before I could start, but when I had done that, it was so much fun!
My old guitar!!

When I was young I had several years lessons to learn to play the guitar. I learned to play classic music.
But that wasn't really what I wanted.... I wanted to play songs and sing with it, at the campfire etc.
My teacher couldn't teach me that...
I tried to learn it myself when I was just married, but I had a great problem with tuning.

A while ago a colleague told me that there are instruments now that help you tune, so I ordered that online. I hope it will come soon!
I also ordered a online course playing the guitar and I started today with lesson 1. My fingers are a bit sore now, but it is so much fun!
I already can play "Happy Birthday" a little bit...

Love, Miranda

Get well

I wanted to make a Get well card for a colleague that is in the hospital.  
So the card sketch from Cosmo Cricket was just what I needed!

Love, Miranda

The earth laughs in flowers

For a challenge at My Scrapbook Nook (use 7 flowers) and the color challenge at Color Combo Galore I made this layout.

Butterfly kisses

At My Scrapbook Nook there will be a Virtual Crop this weekend. Will you join? The Nook is such a great place!!!

As a starter the first challenge was:
Go to the gallery and find a layout you really like. Create a new layout based on the inspiration from this layout: you can chose to lift it, pick elements, be inspired by colors, design etc etc, anything goes. You can chose to be inspired from an Altered item too for this challenge but not a card this time.

So I went to the gallery and choose this layout from Jessy.

I was inspired by the butterflies and the white space on this layout.
This is what I did with it:

Flying high

Met de envelop die ik kreeg van Nicol (October Afternoon, voor de enveloppenswap) heb ik deze layout gemaakt.
** With the envelop I got from Nicol (October Afternoon, for the envelop swap) I made this layout.
De foto is gemaakt in mei, toen Andre en hans samen met Quinn gingen vliegen. Een hele belevenis voor hem!
** The picture was made in May, when Andre and Hans went flying with Quinn. Quitt an event for him!

Sketchabilities August 15 ~ sketch#53

 Here is one of those fabulous sketches of Karan again.
I used it this time to create the front of a canvas book. From my sis her wedding, as a gift for my parents.
 The canvas book is not ready yet. But... I'll show you when it is!
I used a lot of Tim Holtz distress ink for this project. 
The cover of the book is made from cardboard.
There is one Prima flower on it (right), the other flower is a very cheap one from a Hortensia of the Action.
The pearl dread is from the Xenos, just like the pearl brad in the center of the flower.

Proud like a peacock

Today I worked on a layout with this colors from Color Combo Galore.
 At first I thought "difficult colors", but when I had found my papers together an idea came to mind.
With the right pic this is a beautiful color combo!
 The designers challenge this week is to use a grid on the page. My background has a grid!

Basket filled with love and a little toot!

Yes there is another layout for the weddingalbum from Regina and Rene.
I used the sketch for the August challenge at Let's Scrap.

And a little toot:
 My layout Treasure hunting is chosen as Gallery fave at Color Combo Galore.
Here is what they said about it:

Gallery Fave #3 - Miranda Wedekind

Miranda's page is just gorgeous! I love her design, not only the elements she used, but the visual placement. Very well done. For the Designer's Challenge, she used translucent pearls and a photo of seaglass. Love it!

Congratulations Miranda! My Gallery Fave!

It's a girl!

Gisteren kregen we een geboortekaartje en natuurlijk heb ik even een kaartje gemaakt om te versturen aan de gelukkige ouders en broertjes.
** Yesterday we did get a birth announcement and of course I made a card to sent to the happy parents and brothers.
 De kaart is geïnspireerd door een sketch van Ingrid Danvers op My Scrapbook Nook.
** The card is inspired by a sketch from Ingrid Danvers at My Scrapbook Nook.
