Card

A friend asked me to make her a card for a boy's Baptism some weeks ago and of course I wanted to do that.

 Not the thing I do so often nowadays, but fun anyway.
Used some old papers by Pion, some chipboards by dusty attic, laces and flowers.
And of course I needed to use some stencils on the background :D

Cool

Hi and good morning (as it is morning here in Norway)

Just wanted to share a layout I made and forgot to publish.
All about our oldest daughter and photos from this summer.

Once again, a layout with happy colors!
I have used Colorations mist by Art Anthology, some archival ink and India ink.
And stencils and stamps of course :)

Art Journal - just for fun

A quick art journal to show you today, but first......

I won a spot at Mixed Media Studio 9-week guided workshop!!
So happy and can't wait to start!

With teachers like: Carolyn Peeler, CD Muckosky, Céline Navarro, Christy Tomlinson, Donna Downey, Frank Garcia, Karen Grunberg, Rebecca Sower, Susan Weckesser


Aren't I the most lucky girl??? So looking forward to my first online class!

So... next, my little art journal, made in my large Dylusions journal.
A page that's been painted and worked on - unintensionally for a long time
I even tried to draw a face (so popular nowadays).

Not a thing I will be doing often, honestly - I cannot draw faces!!
Nevertheless.. a page it is and much inspired by Dina Wakley

She is brave - DT Art Anthology

This month we are doing the breast cancer awareness at Art Anthology.

A terrible , and sometimes deadly disease!

Just after we got our theme for October post I heard that one of my creative friends had been diagnoced with breast cancer and I knew I wanted to make something for her.
Not that this canvas would help her in any way, but just so she knew I was thinking of her. So she's already got the canvas when this post is out.

Hope she liked it.

You can find the whole procedure over at Art Anthology blog, would love if you checked it out!

Hold on - canvas


Last week I went to a workshop here in our city.
A workshop with Golden Artist Colors.
I love these Golden products, full quality paint and art mediums.

We got to try different acrylic paints like the heavy body, fluid and iridescent and mediums like clear polymer (used as basecoat), glass bead gel and clear granular gel on a canvas.

I used the products on my canvas without any kind of meaning, just wanted to try them out, how they reacted with each other.

When I came home, I started to add some more paint, using my new Art Anthology stencils.
Also added an image from a magazine.
I used Triton acrylic paint marker for the letters (white).
Stabilo all magic pencil and white Golden fluid acrylic was used to outline the magazine image.

Wow, I really loved how it turned out!

Mandala art journal - DT Art Anthology

 
Our September challenge at Art Anthology was Mandala art .

ohhhh..what a challenge for me, never done one and never heard of it before!

Had to read me up on it to get hold of what the meaning was.

Have to be honest, it will probably not be so many of those for me, not because I didn't like it, but because of my hand/arm/fingers are struggling with such art.
I have tried zentangle, love those, but for the same reason as above ,
I have to drop out of such fine drawing.

But anyway, here is my mandela finally.

I have used colorations together with brush to color the mandela in diffeent colors.

The page is gessoed before I started.
Love the AA Gesso!!

Then I just starting drawing with a black pen.
Different pattern and shapes.
I photographed some of the steps from the start and you can see it in Art Anthology blog.

I just sprayed different colors of Colorations on my craft mat and used the new brush to color in the shapes

On some of the parts I went back and did another layer with colorations, to get a darker color tone, as you see on the "flower" in the middle.

Best friends - Prima BAP

Fell in love with the sketch at Prima Build a Page this time and wanted to make on for this challenge.

It's been a while since I've shopped some Prima products (or scrapping products at all), but nevertheless, I have lots of things in my stash, so no problem making a layout with Prima products LOL

Here I have used paper from Almanac collection "libre" and Finnabair's Sunrise - sunset collection.
I have used stamps, resist canvas and stencils by Prima and of course flowers!
Some vintage flair, say it in crystal and metal , also from Prima.

Chipboard by 2Crafty (from the prize I got from Scrap around the World)
I even managed to use some of the Julie Nutting stamps on this layout.

Colors are mostly Archival Ink pad and Colorations by Art Anthology + Gesso

The photo is me and our cat having a good time.
Or at least I am :D
Our cat is not a cat that likes to be hold and is not a cozy cat.
The only person he jumps up to - is me ;)


Here is the sketch by Prima and the truely beautiful Keren Tamir:



and here is my take on the sketch:
