"on the edge" prompt no 5 altered book

The theme "on the edge" was chosen by Jaine this time. I got a bit stuck, I have to admit, but once I got started it was great fun.
The background is a collage of neocolors, paperstrips, gesso, acrylics and stamps.
Last summer I met this lady who was very sad because her peacock just died (a couple of weeks ago). She sold the feathers on a flea market in Sweden. When I told her that I would use them in my art journal, she got very happy and thought that her peacock Paul still would be remembered by somebody else but her. She made me a good price and now I have 20 feathers still waiting in the basement...

Anyway - this is the first page using one of Pauls feathers.

My "edges" are all decorated with washi masking tape(and one from Tim Holtz) - love the effect and the possibilities.

All stamps used are from Tim Holtz as well.

Wish you all a very nice weekend!


I can fly!

I had 2 days off work , so I could spend some time with our youngest daughter. And WHAT DO YOU DO with an almost 14 year old girl?
We spent the last days shopping...
I can feel springtime coming around the corner - the shops were filled with spring clothes and outside ,finally, it's getting warmer AND the birds are singing again.
3 weeks ago, I saw the first geese flying over our little country, so springtime is definately on its way!

This card is made for wednesdaystampers theme "I can fly".
If somebody REALLY wanted to fly , it must have been Leonardo da Vinci. This genouis, with all his art and ideas!
All the stamps are from a french company called Katzelcraft. The lady making the stamps had made a whole plate with his inventions.
The cage is from another french company called Atilolou.
The wings are diecuts from Tim Holtz and I was lucky to find an old brad in my stash, with a bird and the word "fly".
The background is painted with acrylics this time.
I am quit sure Mr da Vinci himself must have said the words "I can fly" several times in his life...!

Prompt 4 "cars"

This week Laurence choose the theme and it is "cars/road".
I used stamps from stampers anonymous, paperartsy and cherry pie art stamps.
The tags are recycled as I thought the words "shiny" and "identity" fit well to the theme.

"Expressions of love" for WS

This is my entry for wednesdaystampers challenge "expressions of love".
My dear husband is celebrating his birthday today so this card is for him. He loves biking and he likes to spend time with me, so the stamp from crafty individuals was perfect. The heart is a diecut and the text is a stamp from hero arts.
Background "à la me" - I'm still crazy with my wonderful neocolors...

Happy birthday, Peter!

Leaves for wednesdaystampers

This page is my entry to wednesdaystampers challenge "leaves and pods".
I used my new neocolors, wich my boss brought me last week (not bad with a boss like that, hey...), an image from a magazine, diecuts, stamps from Tim Holtz and Gel-a-tine and the quote is from my daughter (probably stolen from somebody else...?)
I am very happy with my new colors and I hope to use them alot in the future!
Thanks Sunanda and thanks Lisa!

Wish you all a great week !
