a Journal Page for ASOI

Hello again!
I sure had trouble with this one! LOVE the colour combo but where could I find the right ones...?

I ended up searching and looking through washi tapes, old papers, embellishmets and, and, and...

In the end I was happy with the page - stunned by that great posca pen - amazed how easy it was to write with it on black gesso ( I can`t remember how many black pens I`ve damaged by writing on white gesso!)

The colours are this months combo for the colour challenge at ASOI ( a sprinkle of imagination) , using ink black, sand, vivid green, slate blue and pale grey.

Hope you like it!


a tag for Craft Stamper

I haven`t made a tag in a long time and I felt like joining the challenge at the Craft Stamper Magazine. Tomorrow is the very last day for their 7th challenge...

I used stamps from the french company TampoManiak, distress inks, a sodalicious frame and a stencil from Ronda Palazzari.

The photo might not be the very best, but what can I do? It`s difficult to make a nice pic when the weather is like it was today -  dull and dark...

Take care out there!

A snake page for AJJ

Many years ago, I bought a book about Chinese astrology . It was really fascinating to read about the different signs and try to find out who is what. I found myself being a snake. I didn`t like that fact, as I `m not very fond of those creatures. But after reading that book, I understood that a snake could have a quit charming character and qualities!

Nesting for instance! Making a lovely nest for the babies, trying to keep them all together and prefer to stay there with them as long as possible...

Our son is also a snake and he does the same as I do - nesting... Another thing a snake does, is to try to charm the surroundings so it may be left alone in its nest. An intelligent creature and many people say it is a beautiful too (I still don`t like the way it looks!).

Sooo, this is my entry to Art Journal Journey challenge Zodiac signs.

I used stamps from Artemio and Alladin together with stencils from Rona Palazzari and Dina Wakley.

Happy February! Today we had thousands of wild geese passing over our heads direction north - spring will get here - not tomorrow, not the day after tomorrow, but finally it will!

I wish you all a nice second part of February!

the word SILENCE , this time for Craft Barn

This spread is my entry for the Craft Barn`s Q&L Challenge which is Dazzle and/or Silence.

I used the lyrics from "Enjoy the silence" by Depeche Mode.

The whole spread is VERY much inspired by Dina Wakley - I feel that I need those colours right now - to warm me up in this cold and wet time of the year.

Stamps used; Stampotique, Zettiology, Hero art.

Wish you all a nice week!
