SKYNDA LANGSAMT...


 

A journal page for my mum - skynda langsamt = hurry slowly.

Hurrying around to please others and to prove that she still can do things.. just like my grandma.

Instead it is better to "touch a few" and let them " touch" you to .


Gelli plate background with stamps from Carabele studios .


Take care out there!

February - please, be kind!


 Please February - be kind!

We need light and happiness. We need signs of spring and sleepthrough nights. We need hope and kindness.

Please be gentle - please be kind!

This is my 3rd page (out of 4) where the background is a collage and the focus is a stamped image.

Here I`ve used Mela (Stampotique) , Funky Ducks (Carabelle studio) and Rainbow is my favorite color (Carabelle studio)

I love using "old" scrap pieces - here I even found paper from SODAlicious ! LONG way back!

Let us hope that February will be nice!

JANUARY - blues


Thirty days has September, April , June and November.

Unless leap year is its fate, 

February has twenty-eight.

But all the rest have tree days more,

...

...

...

excepting January, wich has six thousand one hundred and eighty-four.


This spread is about all these wonderful things to expect and look forward to, once January has passed.

More colours, a brighter sun .... all these "things" waiting for their time to shine.

I `ve used acrylics , posca-pens,  templates (Kate crane and Birgit Koopsen) from Carabelle Studio , a lovely stamp from Gummiapan and different die-cuts from Elisabeth Craft Design


Take care, out there!

We need to have faith!


 Another page (no 2 out of 4) where I have used painted elements in a collage. I love to put it all together and use my sewingmachine to finish it of.

This one is called "have faith" because we all need to have faith in something;

It could be having faith in God, in your body, recovery, friendship, succes, good times coming... anything!  

Take care out there!

It is ok to feel sad.


 

An art journal page inpired by France Papillon and our January weather in Luxembourg.

And I do think it is important to allow ourselves to feel sad once in a while.

Here I`ve used the stamps Daniel Torrentes "Friend" and Birgit Koopsens "rainbow is my favorite color" .

The background is inspired by France Papillon as she shows her "a layer a day" on You-tube.


Wishing you a lovely January - time for happiness as well as for sadness ( if needed).


Take care out there!

Be patient...



 
 

... easy to say - difficult to achieve.


I love to color stamped images with neocolors, cutting apart and then putting it all together. 


My first "mantra" in 2022.

It is hard to be patient. I try.

Stay safe out there!
