pastel colours LO

Sorry for this dark picture, where obviously the colours should be nice and "summery" pastel.

I haden't made a LO in months, but when I saw my dear scrapfriend Laury 55 adding a post and joining the summer challenge with Lilith Eeckels, I felt the inspiration set in...

At work, we put up some small puddle pools for the children. In this age the small ones don't care if they are naked or not, but some parents might do. So, all of them had to wear underpants and later on we hung them up to dry. Love the colours!

Happy summer everyone!

My Donna Downey mixed media album

I finally finished this mixed media album and filled it with photos from my parents big party in may this year. They celebrated 200 years ( my mother soon gets 75, my father just turned 75 and they have been married  50 years = 200!) Last year in october my friend Jaine and I went to the mega event at scrapbookwerkstatt 2013 where we were lucky to have workshops with Donna Downey, Amy Tangerine, Felicitas Klink, Stephanie Berger and Janna Werner. This mini album is signed by DD, believe it or not! A great workshop and a lot of fun - and now finally I can show some pictures of the result:-)

Trying to keep the rustic look - enjoying the craft paper, the texture and this beautiful picture.

Stencil, distressed ink, Hero art stamp, wooden cogs (my father is a very handy man...), paper from Glitz design (yours truly).
Still playing with the Glitz design papers - otherwise using the banner from sizzix and other embellishments given in the kit from Donna Downey.

Playing with stencils and  Dylusion spray inks.

Washi tape, sizzix dies, denim stamps (France), Reprint stamps (Sweden).   
Very soon , I will meet my parents and hand over this memory book. Vintage is not really my style, but I sure enjoyed putting this together.

Happy 200 years, mamma och pappa!

Take it , make it - embossing...

This is my tag for craft stampers challenge called take it make it using a technique showed in the craft stamper magazine July 2013 issue. ALL colours added are embossing powders - stamps from l'encre et l'image and Jenny Bowlin.

Lovely technique and real fun creating in my nice and cool basement!


the letter T without a twist...

The craft barn just came up with the letter T for their alpha dictionary challenge.
I used a gelli plate background and went with the number TWO.

Hope you like it!

Architecture for Art Journal Journey

Art Journal Journey 's challenge in July is about architecture. I had to dig quit deep in my tresure of stamps to find something suitable... the quote by J W Goethe -" I call architecture frozen music".

Can you spot the beautiful gargoyle?

Lux is hot and sweaty right now - no temperature below 20° - we long for the beach and cool water!!!

But we don't complain - after this long and cold winter, we are NOT allowed to complain...:-)

Wish you all a nice week!

The letter Y for the craft barn.

Time pass.
Right now the wheels turn pretty fast in my/our life;

We didn't have any warm water for almost a week, my basement was occupied by workers . Our youngest daughter had like a crisis - it isn't easy beeing 16 years old, beautiful and still don't believe in yourself. I remember that that time in my life was a very difficult time aswell - I wanted to be the perfect familygirl, the best student,  the coolest best friend and at the same time having doubts about life.

So this blogpost is about who YOU are...

This is my entry to the alpha dictionary challenge at the craft barn  where we should use the letter Y.... ( and one girl has got yellow hair - the twist for this challenge).

I'm lucky to have a very creative friend (Jaine) , who is a design team member for different companies ( like sizzix, Sarah Hurley, ASOI...). Last week she had her own stamps made and I was allowed to try them out. Here, on this journal page, her stamp is the girl with an attitude, dressed like one did in the 80th. Other stamps used are from PaperArtsy, Sarah Hurley, ILS and Hero Art. If you want to check out whatever else Jaine's doing, pls visit her blog here.

Wish you all a nice week!

Using SODAlicous products (stencil, paper, stamps) I finished my entry to SODAlicious' 30th art journal challenge about loneliness. Weird pink, but why not...? Love their wodden stencils - the smell of wood has always been one of my favorites!

Take care out there!
