We need to have faith!


 Another page (no 2 out of 4) where I have used painted elements in a collage. I love to put it all together and use my sewingmachine to finish it of.

This one is called "have faith" because we all need to have faith in something;

It could be having faith in God, in your body, recovery, friendship, succes, good times coming... anything!  

Take care out there!

It is ok to feel sad.


 

An art journal page inpired by France Papillon and our January weather in Luxembourg.

And I do think it is important to allow ourselves to feel sad once in a while.

Here I`ve used the stamps Daniel Torrentes "Friend" and Birgit Koopsens "rainbow is my favorite color" .

The background is inspired by France Papillon as she shows her "a layer a day" on You-tube.


Wishing you a lovely January - time for happiness as well as for sadness ( if needed).


Take care out there!

Be patient...



 
 

... easy to say - difficult to achieve.


I love to color stamped images with neocolors, cutting apart and then putting it all together. 


My first "mantra" in 2022.

It is hard to be patient. I try.

Stay safe out there!

Late summer turned into early autumn...


 

Suddenly the colors around us turn into orange and red and the sky here today is ever so blue. 

The  air is crispy and everybody is in a good mood. Beautiful autumn!

The colors in my tagbook change as well - still a lot of brown and pale green but the blue and red start to dominate.


Take care out there!

My first pages in my new booklet - this time made out of tags. The base is either gelli print on card or on canvas. I decorate each "page" with different material I find -  or create  - fitting the color scheme .

I `m already looking forward to filling and creating the next page!


Take care out there!
