Art journal page: Lot of happiness

Hi and welcome to my blog!

1.5 years have passed since I wrote my last post. No specific reason for the silence; work life has just been quite hectic including a lot of travelling, and during the evenings and weekends at home I was not able to allocate enough time for staying online. When time was short, I chose to spend the 'me time moments' at my crafting table creating new projects instead of blogging about them. So that's why you haven't heard from me in a while.

This exceptional spring has cut down the business travels and during the weeks at home I started thinking that it was time to wake up my blog again. Before the offline period I gave the blog a new look and feel, and now I'm excited to continue working on that transition in the coming weeks. And with great exitement I'm sharing with you this new post!

For this art journal page I used a patterned paper I had made a long time ago: In October 2018 Louise Nelson was teaching in Egersund, Norway, and I had the pleasure to participate in the creative weekend and take her workshops. The background page is a simple mark making scribble, but it worked well with the cute girly digi stamp image by Vera Lane!

"You can never have too much happy". I could not agree more!

Thanks for stopping by. How wonderful to see you here!

GDT AALL&Create: Chess lady Art journal page

I love to create collages using stamps from various sets, but sometimes one stamp is all I need for creating an entire project. Especially if that one stamp is of generous A4 size!
The moment I saw this amazing A4 stamp designed by Bipasha Bk I knew I wanted to create an art journal page with it. 

I first stamped the chess lady on a piece of white paper. The ink I used was onyx black VersaFine; when inking a large stamp I prefer using a juicy pigment ink that does not dry too fast. That type of ink makes stamping very simple and you'll be able to get a good crispy print even without using a stamping platform.

GDT AALL & Create: Girlz With Heart

Another fun project with AALL & Create stamps!
One month ago I spent an amazing weekend in Egersund Norway: I had the true pleasure to take several classes by Louis Nelson, who's minimalistic, powerful style has always inspired me. She's such a lovely person and a wonderful teacher, and I will remember this weekend for years to come!

Thanks to AALL & Create, I'm so happy that I and other Louis Nelson fans now have the chance to work with her designer stamps. The images are so versatile, and I'm sure I'll use them for cards, art journal pages, and scrapbooking layouts!

What The Quack! ATC:s for AALL&Create

Today I'm sharing with you an ATC trio I made using AALL & Create's lovely stamp set #135 (design by Olga Heldwein).

As usual, I started with stamping the cute main images on white paper. Then I colored them with my markers, and fuzzy cut.

Purrfect birthday cards!

I'm so excited to share the great news with you: I'm a guest designer for AALL & Create!
Starting today, I will post a new project for you every Saturday; hope you join the fun with me!

My first project is a set of two birthday cards. They share the same techniques, but a different colour palettes.
These climbing cats by Olga Heldwein are ADORABLE! So fun to colour and yet easy to fuzzy cut. Just the way I like!

The backgrounds I coloured with old Distress Stains. I had not used them for a while, but they worked perfectly.
