the letter S for the craft barn

Not a lot of craft time lately, but I still would like to keep going and finishing the alpha-dictionary challenge at the craft barn , where this fortnights letter is the letter S .

I chose the word spool and used some alteration "stuff" from Sizzix, together with the lovely dylusion ink sprays.

Hope you like it!

I wish you all a lovely weekend and I hope that all of us will start to get some christmas feeling( even though the weather here is grey in grey)...

making new friends - ASOI and SDC 126

Another art journal page for the monthly color challenge at the ASOI. I thought it was pretty hard to find the vanilla end the mushroom colours, and I was very happy when I finally succeeded.Other colours included in the challenge: robins egg blue and golden green.

The words are a nice reminder of this weekend - my husband went to Africa earlier this year and there he met some lovely people from Köln (Cologne). He wanted to keep in contact with them and invited them over. In the end we sure had some lovely time together and I do understand why my husband wanted me to meet these people. So , this page is for Lisa, Grete and Holger - "NEW PEOPLE - ENLARGING MY CIRCLE OF FRIENDS"...

...and because of the splatter and that lovely stampotique angel, I also enter the SDC challenge no 126 and hope that they like my splatter with the deep teal neocolorII and the distress stain!

I wish you all a nice start of the new week and hope to see you soon again!

another summer mini SODAlicious style

 This SODA mini will be sent to my parents in Sweden tomorrow.
 I made it "SODA" style as I still am NOT out of love with their cool stuff!!!


Another  summer gone - I look forward to the next one to come and warm my legs!
But first we have to get into the christmas feeling.. I wonder when it will set in....


Freestyle cards for my friend

 My dear friend Jaine had this great idea - pls, go and check her blog for further information...

It is possible to win a Ranger goodie bag - I would LOVE to get that lucky!

I made these cards with gesso, ink splatter, washi tapes, stamps from Heidi Swap and Amy Tangerine, Bakers twine, craft card, a mini mustache (sizzix alerations), a star, distress ink and distress marker.

Hope you like them!

the letter Q for the craft barn

Wow, suddenly the sun returned! Otherwise only rain, rain, rain...

This journal page made me happy - my letter Q for the craft barn. I could have chosen quadrat too , but having a quilting/patchwork history - I almost felt like "coming home"...:-)

I used stamps from Sodalicious and l`encre et l`ìmage and the alphabet set is from sizzix , called "Man, oh man"... (thanks Katherine!)

Hope you like it!

CHILL - an art journal page for ASOI

Through my dear friend Jaine, I heard about this challenge at "a sprinkle of imagination".

It is a color challenge and I gave it a go - and enjoyed it!

This is my very first page in my VERY NEW art journal ( an A4 Dylusion) and I just LOVE it!!!

I used stamps from Stampotique and Tracy Bautista , a dylusion stencil and different inks.
The chilling frog is a cut out from an ad.

Wish you all a nice and cozy november!
