Those Eyes

2crafty chipboards rocks! :)

Here is another DT layout i made for 2crafty
I was inspired by Scrapki-wyzwaniowo August challenge; meadow flowers.


I didn't have any photos of meadows or meadow flowers so I decided to make layout with a meadow feeling instead. I thought of natural elements like, wood, metal and "water" (the little beads are suppose to symbolize water drops)
And then added flowers and of course some butterflies :)

All of the beautiful chipboards comes from 2crafty and here they are all natural, no paint or anything.
The flowers are Primas of course :) I can't seam to create without a little Prima flowers these days :)

The clear beads are from 13arts and the silver ones are Finnabairs micro beads.

Thanks for stopping by! :D

Enjoy today!

This post doesent need much writing I think. The picture sort of says it all :)
Made with watercolor, metallic paint, flowers, bling, chipboards and stickers in Primas wtercxolor coloring book.
DT project for Words&Paintery in august.


It hasn't been happening that much in my blog the last couple of weeks :) That's because all four of us in the family recently got back to work and school after a pretty long summer vacation :)
I have been scrapping and crafting at times but I haven't spent that much time in front of the computer other than for work.

But, here I am again with a lot of finished pieces!
This first one I made for 2Crafty chipboards and also with inspiration from ScrapAfricas August mood board.

It is a photo from a consert and I wanted to capture the glam and glamour of the pic. Lots of purple, glitter and silver metallic. :)

Here is my second layout I made for 2Crafty Chipboard. I entered this in EnLitenButiks's July challenge where you where suppose to lift one of two layouts made by ÅsaJ. I choose this one.
I loved the clean and and simple look of it and also the colors. Only I made it a little brighter and with gold instead of beige.

I was happily surprised by how well the chipboard took the color bloom spray- I used for the gold. You can see it on the detail pics and I haven't used any gesso or anything before just chipboard and color bloom spray. The word and the green leafs are colored with white gesso and gelato crayons.

Always follow your dreams!

Yesterday was my first day over at 2CraftChipboards! :D I can't tell you how excited I am! Hop on over there to see my first blogpost.

This was the first project I did and it also has got a process video. I made it inspired by Mixed Media Place mood board.

I was inspired by the colors as well as the quote. I wanted to make something about me, something I always wanted to do and have in my life. So this palette represents both mixed media scrapbooking as well as my color and paint hobby.
I loved the colors! From the very pale beige to the very dark pink and then white lettering on top of that.

And here is the video :)

You are amazing my son

I have been playing with my water color pencils from Prima again :)
Prima have this beautiful mood board this month and it really inspired me to draw and color on my background.

2016 June PPP

I drew my favorite flower, dahlia. Since I wanted the flower and watercolor splashes to really stand out on the layout I went with a clean and simple style. 

I didn't have anything brass colored so I used my copper and gold colors on the mesh tape and the stars.

The blue flower was originally white but I colored it with acrylic paint and the beautiful chipboard title from 2Crafty I let stay natural since I loved the contrast between the wood, the metal and the watercolor.

Here you can see just the flower. I sketched it first and the used a waterproof black pen from Faber Castell. The water splashes are also made with watercolor pencils. I simply shaved of some color and mixed it with water and the used a brush to splash.¨

Do you see the little blue flag behind the word "smile"? It is cut out of a piece of scrap paper that came from this paper pad:

Life is wonderful!

Life IS wonderful! Me and my two sons went on our summer brake yesterday :D Two whole month of lazy days! Hubby has a couple of weeks left, mohahaha... :P

This month at Words&Paintery we have some typical Swedish colors for you to be inspired by. They are also very typical for summer. Blue as the sky and the ocean and yellow as the wonderful summer sun.

I made a mixed media layout with a pic of my oldest son in the playground. I wanted the layout to be both fun and summery and it turned out better than I hoped! 
Below I even made a short picture tutorial of how the layout is made. (my video webcam seams to be on summer brake as well...stupid camera..)

I was inspired by Prima's BAP for this layout.

2016 June BAP

I started out with Heavy gesso through a stencil and let it dry.

The white heavy gesso worked as a resist when I applied my blue and gold colorbloom on the layout. Instead of sprying  I used a brush to spread and splash out the colors.

Some splashes of ink and a stamp with houndstooth pattern in black to create even more contrast.

I cut strips of paper from different Prima paper pads and added tape (not sure what it's called in English?) for structure.

And finally some embellishments. These are only the big ones. The blue flowers are colored with the same blue color bloom as the background and then some white gesso.

The title is a chipboard piece from 2Crafty. It is first painted whit white gesso and then I stamped on it directly with my stamp pad

Some glass glitter, a little bling and a few stickers and I am done :)

Thank you for watching!
