" pointy hats" for wednesdaystampers

At wednesdaystampers this weeks theme is "pointy hats" so I made another journal page to join the challange.
I only had one stamp with a pointy hat, so of course I had to use it (Zettiology).
The other hat was made out of christmas stamps ( Panduro ).
The background is painted with watercolour, stamped with punchinella, collaged and gessoed over to get the misty effect.
The other stamps are from the sheet "correspondence" and " Gustav Klimt " from Cherry Pie Art Stamps.

I wish you all a nice week and a crispy 1. advent. Luxemburg is expecting snow and I'm looking forward to it ( as long as the roads are free, snow is great!).

Happy sunday to all of you!

consigne 20 for scrap a la fraise

This time it is me to choose the subject at scrap a la fraises "livre altere". I made this page, using some aquarell, a photo strip and a handmade flower. So now we will wait and get stunned when the others show their creations...

WS Asia

The wednesdaystampers would like to see some ideas about Asia this week. I made this collage as my entry.
The background is made of masking tape. I painted it with acrylics and walnut ink and covered it with torn paper from a chinese newspaper. The photo is from Tuscan rose.
I used stamps from Personal images(oriental collage) and Hampion art stamps. The ribbon is bought at a craft fair in Germany, but i don't remember the name of the shop...

Hope you like it and have a good week!


Scrap a la fraise, consigné 19

This is my page for scrap a la fraises consigné 19. We should use an envelope, flowers and different brads.
I made this page to honour my mother. We always try to hide away and get the last evening sun as we chat about everything during the summer holidays. I adore the colour of the barn - a typical house colour in Sweden. It is called "faluröd".

I used my new foamstamps with acrylics and some masking tape aswell.

At studio L3< the CCC #21 is to make a perfect distress according to Tim Holtz' book " Compendium of curiosities" page 38.

I did my tag using Rangers forest moss, bundled sage, black sot and faded jeans.
The perfect pearls used are blue patina and gold.
The stamps are from Tim Holtz' "purely random" and "take flights".
It was hard shooting the photo because of the perfect pearls, but I suppose I will not be the only one with that problem this week...

Thank you for stopping by!
Wish you all a great and creative week!

week 2 at art, heart & healing

This is the first spread of my altered book for the workshop art heart& healing.
I had problems making the transfers as I always used to much glue. This is the best one and even if it's not good, I had to stop myself and just use it...
The journaling is in swedish and now I really like it. I think I am getting a little more brave now - trying new techniques to find my own style...

The page is about what we would wish for ourselves.

(... frosty winterdays with crispy snow, lovely holidays, freedom, love, friendship, long walks in the autumn forest, happiness, family, health...)


a bird for scrappy accents

I just love birds right now - in Wiesbaden last week I ended up buying not less than 4 birdstamps... and at scrappy accents the theme the next 2 weeks is BIRDS. I didn't use my stamps at all - instead I made a bird out of callico, ghesso and wire and stamped it with letters and a paperartsy swirl.
Great fun!

Flowers - just for fun.

Had some fun in the basement yesterday - making feltflowers. Sooo easy to do and sooo expensive to buy!

L3 industrial grunge

This is the card I made for studio L3 this week. As you can see on the picture below, I got the inspiration from the lovely autumn colours we enjoy right now.
I followed the instructions on p. 54 from Tim Holtz' book " a compendium of curiosities", and I really like that technique.

Happy fall to you all out there!
