my "waiting for spring" - book

  Front page/cover with a peek through window.

I started this book at our mixed media mini marathon with Mosaikscrappers  .
I really loved it from the beginning to the bitter sweet end...

Girls at the frozen sea, watching canadian geese landing.
att lapa sol - enjoy the warmth of the first sun
the best place to be at 7 in the morning

beautiful swedish barn with a waiting birch
paperbag with tag inside, best place to have lunch

all together
still hangin' in here, still waiting

                                                         ...and finally - springs arrival!

Stamps; Tim Holtz, Stampotique, Felicitas Klink, Technique tuesday and Christy Tomlinson.
 All papers used are from Glitz design.

I feel happy USING stuff instead of hoarding stuff. Love this little project!

Wish you all a wonderful week!

my landscape for the Art Journal Journey

Et voila...!" The landscape within me"- a hope that the flowers will return with all their beauty, the words to be said swirling in my head, and finally the heavenly blue colours making me smile...

This is my entry to the monthly challenge at Art Journal Journey.

"Any landscape is a condition of the spirit".

Happy sunday!

A tag for the artful times and creavil.

Creavils challenge no 52 is about "Insekten und Krabbeltiere". I used the gorgeous Crafty Individuals stamps no 033 and the plate 4 - wings.

With this tag , I also join the challenge no 27 at the Artful Times, where the theme is to use stencils and/ or masks. As I'm a big fan of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, I used the opportunity to play with 4 different of her stencils (mini chevron arrows, mini stripes, mini paint lids and another one without me remembering its name...!).

The colours are all distress inks - sponging through the stencils - love it!

Wish you all a great and sunny weekend!

the letter W with circles

Hello again!

The craft barns alpha challenge is still one of my favorites to join right now. This time we have the letter W to work with and we have to use some kind of circle on the page as well.

Creating this water page , I used dylusion and distress inks, stencils from sodalicious and the crafters workshop. I added my beloved gesso with modelling paste and the stencils are from paperartsy and art journey.

Hope you all like it!

the letter R for the craft barn - finally!

Busy, busy, busy...busy with all those things called family, work, cooking, education, friends...
I am very happy to be able to say that I have all those things in my life, but my crafty time is suffering after a week with family in Sweden, to catch up at work and, and, and...

BUT, here we are -  I finally finished my art journal page for the craft barn's alpha/dictionary challenge letter R.

Wish you all a nice end of the week!

Bad blogger/good recycler

This was a day on holidays in lovely, clear, frozen Sweden last week. No chance to scrap with paper, so I made my own lampshades instead. Enjoying the sun and my husbands company, I made 3 different ones out of  bed sheets and laces.

Just another good day!
