Flowers on a tag - AB Studio Design Team

Hello Crafty Souls! Summer has almost past and I took a short break from blogging and crafting for a couple of weeks. Today I am back with this little something created for the AB Studio Design Team. 

This small tag was really fun to make!

I used scraps of papers from "In Wonderland" & "Be Gentile" collections. Some papers are just SO lovely that you do not want to throw away a single bit of them and these are!

And don´t you love the flowers? I stamped with stamp no 70, colored them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists & then fussy cut. LOVE the result!!

Thank you for stepping by today!

Art Journal "Salt in the Air" - Mixed Media & Art Design Team

Good Day Crafty Souls!

I´m here today to show you my inspiration piece for the July Challenge "Sea Fantasies".

The Sea is something precious to me. I grew up by the sea & spent all vacations throughout my childhood and youth on a boat with my parents. I still live by the sea - I can watch it´s marvelous scenery from our house, and it never stops to amaze me. I could not live anywhere where there was no sea or water in sight!

You have until August 14 to link up your project inspired by the moodboard:

I ended up making this Art Journal spread with textures from AB Studio stencils and loads of random stamping and Tattered Angels mists, High Impact paints & Glimmer Glam paints. Stickers from 7 Dots Studio add the final touch.

I hope you like it!

Art Journal "Select Simple" - AB Studio Design Team

Hi creative souls! Today I want to share my latest project for AB Studio - a Art Journal spread using the lovely new paper collections & stamps!

I have used Vintage Elements paper from where I cut out the arrows & the sentiments.

I stained the arrows and the sentiments to tie in with the rest of the page.

I love the Mixed Media stamp set 4. The flowers are SO delicate and usable. I stamped, painted and cut a few out before adding to the page. The scribble stamp (stamp no 70) is just my type of stamp! I love the grungy messy feel it crates.

Layout "Blossom & Shine"

Hello Crafty Souls! Today I´m sharing this colorful layout created for the July Challenge at 7 Dots Studio. I love the sparks of color & the foliage in the moodboard!

I chose this colorful photo of a dark puple tulip from my garden for this project. I wish I could say that my garden still has it, but this summer has been marvellous in so many ways so far, sunny & hot. But NO rain - our garden is in a dreadful state, almost nothing is alive anymore... 

I used colorful flowers together with papers & embellishments from the Garden Party Collection.

Splatters & spritzes of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist make the black cardstock sparkle.


The word stickers from 7 Dots Studio always have a place on my projects!

A Day by the Sea Layout

Happy Thursday crative souls! We are in the middle of summer and what could be better and a Sea & Beach inspired layout? I have had these wonderful papers from the Canvas Corp collection Ship to Shore and the new challenge at More than Words gave me the reason to use them. The challenge is called Beach & Seachells, and well - you get it...

Where I live you can count the occasions when it is warm enough to actually go to the beach. Spending time by the sea on the other hand is something we do on a daily basis. I love this picture of my kids from two summers ago. We went to a old fishing shore and they ran around there exploring the surroundings. Lots of shells to pick, beautiful stones and old lighthouses to explore. The sea was cold that that so they did not dip their toes, but ran around the beach without shoes. Spreading the summer dirty toes in the sand...

Love the rubons from 7 Gypsies Architextures!

Cut out shells & a shellfish under cover ...

Love splatters of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

Word stickers from 7 Dots Studio are great!

This is the challenge board from More than Words:
