Kort og Memory-book - DT Poppydesign

Et par ting som ble publisert på Poppydesignsiden på Facebook sist uke som jeg ikke har fått rukket å vise frem her i bloggen min.

 Først et kort, laget med ark fra den lille blokken i Curiosity-serien som Vibeke Spigseth - Poppydesign har designet for Panduro
Her har jeg også brukt alfabet , klemme og bånd fra samme serie
Har brukt en stensil, gel medium og akvarellmaling på bakgrunnen.

Også en side til i Memory-book. Også her har jeg brukt saker fra Curiosity-serien, klistremerker, kort,   og tape

Just be yourself - Layout

You know when you get some new stuff you just have to try it immediately?
That happened  just recently when I received some of the new Prima/Finnabair products from Mixed Media Place and some gorgeous chippies from 2Crafty.

 So here is a rather "soft" layout from me, with a photo of our youngest daughter taken for the school catalogue for her first year at  junior high/secondary school.

 I wanted to keep is soft, because of her pink pastel sweater.

 The bacground is made with Prima heavy Gesso and some of the new Finnabair stencils
I also used some Gelato, Mica Powder and mist by Lindy's Stamp Gang
And of course some stamps, also by Prima.
Different flowers from Prima and Petaloo
 Papers are 7Dots Studio Collection Thoughts keeper.
 Chipboard are some of the new ones I just got from 2Crafty - love those chippies!!

You're my weakness - Creative Gym Exercise #6 Mixed Media Place

My one and only favorite actor is Johnny Depp! A remarkable actor and person. (I could keep talking about him for ever, but have to make it short here... :) ) There are so many different quotes I love, both by Johnny Depp and from the characters he plays. So here is my layout, with Mr.Depp himself and one of his quotes.

So here is my layout, made for the new Creative Gym Exercise #6 at Mixed Media Place

Don't forget to check into the blog and look at the gorgeous projects from the rest of the team

I used Golden Molding Paste with the TCW Tiny Circles stencil.
I sprayed Ranger's Colorwash on the pattern paper first.
Next, I used a brush with water to “water it out”.
I also sprayed some water on the page and dipped the brush with Colorwash in random places (you can see the effect especially on the turqouise “stream” on the right hand side of the page, below the photo of Mr.Gorgeous).
I tried to “match” the pattern paper with my colors and misting.
The pattern paper is from my favorite 7Dots Studio Collection - Wonderland

Hope you have a gorgeous night!

Follow Your Curiosity DT Mixed Media Place

I cannot believe I’m writing this post, but it’s true!

I am one of the new members on this fabulous team!
So thrilled and honored to be chosen to create for Mixed Media Place together with such amazing artists!

 For my first post I chose to make an art journal spread in one of my old books.
In fact, it's a children's book that belonged to my father.

 My best time in my craft room is when I can make some art – just for fun – without thinking.
 Let my fantasy and juices flow without any boundries.

Stop by Mixed Media Place and check out my post and also with links to all the products I have used from Mixed Media Place

Enjoy the journey - art journal

Having some fun with some of the new products bought from Mixed Media Place, stencils, gesso and mica powder.

Combined with Dylusions mist, black gelato and some stamps of course.

Image from a magazine and with Rubon by Tim Holtz.

I've used some sewing thread under the image and mist, just to get some more interest.

Jeg kan /I can! art journal

Jeg ble spurt om å lage et inspirasjonsbidrag til Papirfesten side helg og det skulle være en art journal.

Så da var det bare å sette i gang da - elsker å inspirere og håper noen av deltakerne lot seg inspirere!

 I was asked to make a project to inspire the group at the crop at Papirfesten in Stavanger/Norway last weekend and it should be an art journal.

 So I made a page, that I hope some of the creative girls were inspired by.

 The title: I can!
I listed some of things I'm good at and wanted that to be the inspiration, just tell yourself what you're good at sometimes - that is important!

I used a stencil by Andy Skinner for the lady image and the background is made with different leftover paint and Archival Ink. Some stamps by Stampendous and Tim Holtz.
