The letter F(e-Fr) for the craft barn

This art journal page is my entry to challenge letter F at the craft barn.

I used my gelli plate to create the background, using real feathers as well. The peacock feather is one of the last ones from peacock Paul...

Hope you like it!



Very late, and maybe even toooo late...but anyway....

I'm filling the pages in my selfmade SODAlicious journal booklet. This spread is called "simplicity" and is my entry to SODAlious no 27 art journal challenge.

Freezing in my basement - will the summer ever arrive this year?

"Challenge yourself" for AJJ

This month the Art Journal Journey would like us to challenge ourselves and do something we normally don't do. I decided to dribble and draw freehanded like my friend Jaine sometimes does.

But beeing me, of course I had to add a stamp aswell ( I wouldn't have joined this scrapworld if it hadn't been for the good old wednesdaystampers, where you could entry with anything as long as you had stamped something), and right now , I just LOVE this little tree hanger from Stampotique.

"Burst, release, blast" - the way the nature simply explodes in colours and different shades of green.

Hope you like it!

Blooming for the artful times

Another art journal page - this time, my entry to artful times' challenge "blooming".

I cut out the flowers using the tattered floral die from Tim Holtz. The background is made with stencils and dylusion ink sprays. I covered the background with scrapbook papers from Glitz design and stamped over once again with a lovely text stamp from Stampendous.

The quote says;
" Every child is a different kind of flower, and all together, they make this world a beautiful garden".

I hope you like it!

Letter K for the craft barn

Happy sunday everybody!

Lots of rain in Luxemburg today = lots of time to spend in the crafty room!

I really enjoyed my afternoon and I had this feeling of  "letting go", you know? 4 projects finished and this is the first to put on the blog - Letter K for the Craft Barn . In swedish, danish, german I could find a lot of words starting with K, but in english...? Not very many.

I ended up with K for KITE - did anyone of you read the gorgeous book "the kiterunner"? If not, please do!!! A wonderful book about people in Afganistan.

I wish you all a nice start of the new week!

The ART journal page for two challenges.

Hello again! What a day - a bad, bad day.... I woke up with tummy ache at 5 o'clock and ended feeling awful at 5 in the afternoon. A wasted day - and all the things I had planned to do!!!

Anyway - this is my entry to the craft stampers challenge, where we should tear and/or rip paper. I used a dictionnary page ,a  music sheet and a paper from Glitz design as the background. I stamped with stamps from Hero art, Dylusion and Hampton art stamps ( Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life).

Colours used - dylusion and Faber Castell PITT.

...AND I enter the challenge at  the craft barn - letter A. The chosen word, of course is ART.

I hope all of you had a good saturday - 4th of may - the scrapbook day!!!

Take care out there!
