One of my favorite creative artists and inspirators.

She's the most sweetest person and I'm so happy to finally have met her ♥
Thank you Finnabair ♥
I took two classes with her on saturday, at Bikuben.
Had the time of my life and this will for sure be one of the highlights for 2014

Remember DT 7Dots Studio

When I got the Nature Walk collection by 7Dots Studio in front of me I knew what the first layout would be!

This photo is taken some years ago, on a trip we did at the western coast of Norway.

Our youngest daughter went for a walk “into the wilderness”.
                      

(I think I could have used almost all the word stickers on this one!)
One of the reasons I LOVE 7Dots Studio is that all the collections
come with lots and lots of stickers, tags, words etc.
      

Makes it so easy and fun to create, when everything matches!



















On the fabolous Illumination chipboard I just used some chalk to get some different color tones.

7Dots Studio products used:
Nature Walk “gray day”
Nature Walk “Cotton”
Nature Walk paper pad
Nature Walk 6×12 Elements stickers
Nature Walk 12×12 tags
Nature Walk word stickers
Nature Walk stamps
Um Wow Studio stencil
Illumination chipboard
Um Wow Studio flair

Wishing you all a great night and a great new week!

Why stop dreaming? DT 7Dots Studio



Hi there, hope you all are well!

Today is my day at 7Dots Studio again :)
Guess most of you has seen the awesome new winter collections by 7Dots Studio now?
If not, check out 7Dots Studio for more information!

I feel so honored and blessed to be on the gorgeous 7Dots Studio team and to be able to play with those gorgeous collections ♥


I love to dream!
And that’s why I love art journaling, it allows me to just create whatever I want, without thinking

 And I often use my dreams in my art journals, bad dreams or good dreams.

On this page I tried out some new inks by Daler Rowney on the background and used a lot of stamps from the three new collections.

I love using stamps and was so happy to see so many stamps coming with the different collections!

Added bits of papers from the gorgeous Cold Country collection.
I cut the paper in diamonds (like the paper design) and used Gelato and acrylic paint for shadows.

The top circle is mounted with 3D-pad to lift up the shape.












7Dots Studio products used:
Cold Country “forgotten”
Cold Country 6×12 Elements
Cold Country 6×12 Word stickers
Cold Country stamps
Illumination stamps
Nature Walk stamps 

Hope you liked my journal page and I'll see you again soon

Art Journal - DT Poppydesign

Marianne her igjen, med ukens siste innlegg fra Vibeke Spigseth  -Poppydesign.
Denne gangen er det en art journal jeg har å vise dere.
I tillegg til den flotte permen som kom for en tid tilbake har jeg også her brukt ark fra den kule My Art Journal-blokken.
Måtte jo nesten lage en art journal med det navnet.

Her har jeg klippet og limt masse. Arkbiter i ulike størrelser og fasonger og gel medium, samt ulik mist, maling  fra Art Anthology  samt stensiler.
Har også brukt Gelato til å marker litt skygger.

Fin måte å bruke rester av rubons og alfabeter på, bare lesset på med bokstaver her og der.

teksten: Those who don't believe in magic will never find it av Roald Dahl

Follow your dream - Canvas DT Art Anthology

Hi all, I'm back with a canvas for Art Anthology!

. Hope you all are well and that you have gotten to know all the new girls on the team now, at least seen some of their amazing projects!
Today I'm showing you a canvas.
My youngest daughter asked me some weeks ago, if I could make her a canvas, in a kind of vintage/chabby chic style. Well.... I wouldn't say this canvas was very vintage, but anyway...she loved it!

One of the things I love about beeing on the Dream Team here at Art Anthology is the amazing products and how they all can be used in so many ways!
And that I can play with them - just as I like! Get inky and messy - my favorite mess!

Hopefully I can show you ways to use the products, different techniques and combinations and that my work will inspire you to try it out :)

I have a lot of photos on Art Anthology blog with start to finsish, so pop over to see more if you're interested!
