New art journal

Last Saturday I found this amazing book at a lokal fleemarket. It's a book with lots of woman magazines from 1946.




This is a kind of book I have been looking for for ages, for my art journaling. 

First page finished yesterday


I gessoed the page first because of the thin pages. The lady on the page is from the original page and here I used clear gesso. 
Filled the page with some acrylic paint and Gelato. 
Also used some of my newest stamps from Everything Art. Love the color wheels!

Hope you liked my post. This post was made from my cellphone, so I'm not sure how the post look.
Totally forgot to edit my photos as well :)

Redesigned bottle

Hi there, long time now.

I've been busy doing nothing, aka summer holiday.
Had some fabolous weeks off work, travelling both to Mallorca and here in Norway.

My latest project is a redesigned bottle from Ikea. (the content was some juice, but that's all gone)



First I covered the bottle with a coat of black Gesso.
Next I used Finnabair's awesome  Art Alchemy acrylic metallic paint.

After all was dry I used some molding paste and a stencil.

Next covered part of the bottle with old buttons, laces ,  findings, metal pieces , flowers  etc.

Covered the whole thing with black gesso  and so came the fun part, going wild with the metallic paint again.

Really loved the result! (my hubby wondered if I had been seeing Pirates of the Carribean again, because it looked like some of the old treasures in the films LOL)














Hope you liked my bottle and got some inspiration to do the same!

Forget perfect embrace imperfection - art journal



Here is an art journal inspired by the class by Magda Polakow as a part of the year-going class at Everything Art.

Made by bits of scrapbook papers, acrylic paint, gelatos and of course, my childish drawings.



Wishing you all a lovely day!

Cherish the moments - DT 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi again,

Today I'm showing the last of my projects for 2Crafty Chipboard.
The photo this time is from our trip to London last year.
While walking around in the streets of London I noticed this beautiful "scene" so I had to take some photos. Loved the look of the old bicycle and the flowers, together with the brick wall.

And I tried to create the scene I saw with lots of chippies by 2Crafty Chipboard.












So with this post it's my farewell to the amazing 2Crafty Chipboard team and the gorgeous chippies.
I will for sure make more layouts with those chippies , but not as a design team member.

Wishing the new team all the best, you'll have a fabolous time!!

Until next time,
hugs from
Marianne

Be yourself - DT 2Crafty Chipboard

Today is a special day for me, my last post for 2Crafty Chipboard.
It's been a fabulous year and I have loved every second of it!
Amazing chipboard and so easy to use! My favorites are the titles and the background panels.

Thank you Vanessa for having faith in me and your generosity.  Love you!

And thanks to my fellow team-members, it's been an awesome ride!
 Wish you all the best!

One of my farewell-layouts

Lots of cards - DT 2Crafty Chipboard

I have made a lot of cards lately with bits and pieces of chippies by 2Crafty Chipboard.

It's always so easy to use these chippies, also on cards.
I often cut them in smaller pieces to fit my cards.

Have a look:
