Junk Journal staying@home

 Front page = collected "old" paper .
Funny photo, envelope, sheet of music paper, paper bags,
 
floral paper from my beloved Flow magazine,
collected elements from the past few years,
tags and cut outs...



I got the inspiration from the group of creative people at Mixed Up Creative Academy .
So I started going through my old stuff, my collection of papers, documents, photos, old tags, and, and, and...
So here I am, waiting for the rain to come so I can start decorating some more pages...

Take care, out there!

Stampotique 345 " Quote"




At Stampotique the theme is favorite quote. My entry does not show my  "favorite" quote, but I think it fits quit well into this weird time of virus and chaotic scenarios.

I used acrylics for the background and posca pens for details. Stamps used;

- Elaina
- Mervynboy
- Two sticks

I wish you all the very best.

Stay healthy and keep distance…

February challenge prompt for Mixed Up creative Academy

Another page in my art journal.

This time the prompt at Mixed Up creative Academy is about music.
Since December the song "Memories" by Maroon 5 seems to follow me  - I just can`t get it out of my head. So, of course, I had to use the lyrics for my page.

The tutor Jennifer Gallagher taught us how to create a kind of galaxy with sprays, inks and splatter.

Getting started - a new Art Journal on its way.

Looking at Mixed Up Creative Academy and what they all "get done", I felt like starting art journaling again. Getting inspiration from Katy Leitch as well as having a lot of time for ME - I started with this page.
Digging through my old supplies, I found my "old" stencils, distress inks, blending and hej ho, here we go - my beloved rubbons!!! Sooo funny to use it all again!

Wishing you all a nice day, stay healthy and don`t forget to smile!

A birthdaycard for SDC 344.

Most people today have to stay at home. I think it is very hard not to have my usual liberty.
But , on the other hand it is nice to get more crafty time. Saying that, I feel so worried about my loved ones and therefor it is hard to even concentrate on being crafty. As if the spirit doesn`t join in.

I made this card thinking of my daughter stuck in wonderful New Zealand. Everything is closed and they (daughter and boyfriend) are desperate to find a place where they can spend the next couple of weeks until the worst part of the pandemic is over.
She will even celebrate her birthday down there
.
And then I have my parents in beautiful Sweden. Almost the one and only country that HAS NOT shut down schools and social living because they believe in another solution. I DO hope that my parents ( and of course all the other elderly and people at risk) will survive this act.

Anyway  - Stampotique has a new theme again - this time it is all about Birthday.

So this card is for our lovely Emilie in NZ (just somewhere outside Christchurch) , for my mom turning 81 in Sweden and for my father in law in Denmark turning 99 next month.

Stamp used = tree topper.

Wish you all the very best!
