Late summer turned into early autumn...


 

Suddenly the colors around us turn into orange and red and the sky here today is ever so blue. 

The  air is crispy and everybody is in a good mood. Beautiful autumn!

The colors in my tagbook change as well - still a lot of brown and pale green but the blue and red start to dominate.


Take care out there!

"pollen" - my page for SDC376 - "mask or template"


 Long time - no see...

At work it is all about gnoms, fairies, small creatures hiding in the forest. I see them all over!

This is a new colorpalette to me - I like it - purple mixed with beige and soft pink.

AND as every year - pollen is back - making us sneeze and turning our eyes red and "snotty".

I used Jaines stencil/mask for this page. Gelli print together with distress inks. The only stamp here is Daniel Torrentes Two sticks


Nice to be back again!

Another art journal page for iHanna`s. This time the theme is "spring".

I made a collage with water color sand some cute flower/butterfly stamps from Pink fresh studio (playful animal friends).

och vinterkölden genom hjärtat gå

ty bakom moln 

glänsa sol och lycka 

och efter vinter 

blir det  åter vår"


Once again - take care out there!
