Art Journal Spread "d' amour" - More Than Words February Challenge

The February Challenge with More than Words is all about Romance & Rose!

This was a really hard challenge for me. I concider myself a not so romantic person, and my partner is even worse than me. So maybe the lack of roses in my life is the reason why this was so much trouble.... Well, sometimes you just need to go with the task given - and who is not up for a challenge?

 Again I ended up making a Art Journal spread. I find that a perfect media to just try out my skills and dare to fail. I picked up what rose themed papers I could find, fussy cut them and added to the pages. I picked up the colors from one of the roses and gave the pages a soft tone of pink. I could not resist adding a bit of gold - that feels romantic too.... 

I´m actually really happy with how this turned out and maybe there is a string of romance hidden somewhere in me ....

Layout "My Happy Place" - AB Studio Design Team

 The winter season is really here. Today we have -18 C and a cold sun shining down on us. What more do you want to do then sit under a blanket drinking hot chocholate and reading a book?

I created this layout for AB Studio using bright colors, cause that is what I need right now. Something to heat my mind up and make me sparkle. I have used the "Love for all things" paper collection together with stencils, stamps & chipboards to create a layered & interesting layout.

Tag "Winter Wonderland" - AB Studio


Winter is finally here - we have snow and several degrees minus. The sun has even been showing lately - this give SO much energy. I created this tag inspiered by the landscape outside. The snowcrystals catching the sun make our surrondings look like something from a fairytale. 

I have used a chipboard tag as base and covered the front of it with a patterned paper from AB Studios collection "Carry me Slowly". All chipboard pices that I layered also comes from AB Studio. I added paint, embossing powder & a thin layer of gel medium before I applied the Creative foil with an iron. Loving the shimmering result!

Art Journal Spread "There is a Rainbow" - More than Words January 2021 Challenge

I am honoured to be a part of the More than Words 2021 Design Team and today I want to show my entry for the January main challenge "Beginnings and Washi Tape".

The word "BEGINNINGS" inspired me to create a Art Journal spread about that it feels like we should draw a line over 2020 and just leave it behind. 2021 can only be better. I picked quotes that I find fit with the feeling that a new year is a new start with a lot of possabilities.

For the creative challenge "WASHI TAPE" I tore washi tape in little pieces and added to my background. 

I have used Lindy´s Magicals together with stamps from AB Studio to create a cool effect. The washi tape comes from my Cocoa Daisy planner subscribtion and has been collected over the years.

I´m looking forward to see YOUR interpretation of the challenge as you can find here.
