You make life beautiful - layout

Hi =) Today I have a new layout to show you and also an big Canvas I made for my daughter. But first up my layout.
The photos are of my first grandchild Oden. He has brought us so much new light in our life. I love being grandma!


For this layout I have used papers from Blue Fern Studios. Flowers mostly Prima´s.  I´ve done som background work with stencils stamps and Distress Ink Pads. Also used som modelling Paste from Prima with a stencil from Prima. Cheesecloth behind the flowers and som gesso on the flowers. Resin feathers from Prima.

Some closeups!






Now to my canvas painting! My daughter has bought herself a flat and wanted something to hang on her walls. She wanted me to paint something. This is my first painting done in size 70x100 cm. It was a challange with such a big white space to fill up with colors. But I´m quite pleased with my first try.
What do you think about it?

Explore The Nature

Hi =) I found a fun challange over at More Than Words. I also had the perfect photo for this one. We went out walking in a nature reserve by the sea a wonderful sunny day in June. We had a great picnic and took a swim in the sea. The criteria for this chellnge was arrows and the word explore.


As usual on my blog nowadays I have used old stuff for this layout. Backgrund paper is from My Minds Eye. The fussy cutting papers are old Webster Pages. Flowers from Prima and Primas Color Bloom sprays. Chipboard arrows from Blue Fern Studios.

Some closeups :)

Summer love - challenge Mixed Media Place

Hi =) We´ve had a couple of rainy days which has given me some scrappy time. It has been a busy summer so far. Both of my daughters has moved to new living. My oldest daughter has moved to her first own house with her family and my other daughter has bought a flat. So we`ve been carring boxes and furniture.
But now for the rest of the summer I will enjoy my vaccation. And for me the best way to enjoy is to be with our horses. So this page I made yesterday is with a picture of me and my horse Kná from Riibygård which is a 9 year old Islandic mare.
The photo is taken by a very talantet girl named Josefin Karlström. You can follow her on Intsagram @joskab or facebook. She takes the most wonderful photos of horses.
Ready for the layout?



For this layout I have used my old stuff. The papers are from Blue Fern Studio´s older paperline Ombre´ Dreams. Flowers and resin figures from Prima. For my background I´ve used some different stencils together with Distress Ink pads. I also used some stamps and a stencil together with gesso.  The splashes are made with Prima´s color bloom sprays. Some closeups below to see the details.







I just made this page for fun, but I did find a challange to participate in. Over at  Mixed Media place where this month challenge was to get inspired by the nature. For me the summer is about big green fields with lots of differnet wild flowers and a horse or two eating of the juicy green grass.

Ett kort med en dam och en enhörning =)

Hej på er =). Underbara kalla maj är nu till ända och jag ber till vädrets makter att vi ska få en varmare juni. Men kalla blåsiga dagar i maj har medfört mer tid vid pysselbordet som jag dammat av och städat!
Det var otroligt länge sedan jag gjorde kort så jag bestämde mig för att testa det igen. Det blev ett mixed media kort med en fin dam på.


Lite gesso en stencil, stämplar, embossing och microbeads har jag använt till detta kort. Chipboarden är rester från tiden som DT åt Blue Fern Studios. Damen utklippt ur Graphic 45 papper ( någon äldre serie). Blommor från Prima Marketing inc.


En liten detaljbild på bakgrunden samt behandlingen av chipboarden. På chipboarden har jag använt Distress färger.

Har även gjort en ny canvas... motivet en enhörning. Är fortfarande en newbie på detta med tavlor, men tycker det är så oerhört roligt att måla. Får helt enkelt bara öva mera!



Till denna har jag använt Primas akrylfärger i metallic lack samt samt lite andra akrylfärger. stämplar och lite metallic wax också den från Prima Marketing inc. Ett par detaljbilder får ni också =)






Tack för titten!

Mixed Media Canvas - Love

Hi =) Today I´m here to show a canvas a made. I have used some old paints that I found. But also the new metal vaxes from Prima. Love them!!!!
This canvas is for the May challange over at Words & Paintery.

Old love never rust... and that you can say about my love for horses. I found this hobby when I was ten. My parents did not want me to ride horses, because they were afraid I would get hurt. I didn´t listen!
An own horse was on the top of my wishlist every year for birthday and christmas. I did never get one. So when I turned 20 I bought myself my first own horse!
When I was 24 I left the horses behind me, forever I thought, but I was wrong. I couln´t live without them. So this canvas is, besides my family, the love of my life.... that never rust!

Layout - Happy

Hi =) Today I have been at home with my son who has fever. He has been sleeping so I got some time to be creative.
This layout is made for a challenge over at Mixed Media Place. It is this moodboard I´ve used for inspiration.



I fell for the soft color scheme and the quote " Good things take time". My two horses take time! Time that I love to spend both on training them and just hanging around them. It´s a family thing for us. We spend lot of time at the stables. My husband and I and two of our kids who also ride horses.

On this layout I´ve used some inks, gesso, modelling paste, spray colors, stamps, stencils and of course lots of Prima flowers.





On the close up below you can see some of my background work with the stencils and stamps.



For my title I´ve used some embossing powder and acrylic paint.


I will also submit this layout for the challenge over at Mixed Media World

Mixed Media Canvas

Mitt första försök på två år att göra en canvas med metalldelar och spets. Inte helt lätt med igenkloggade sprejfärger, halvt igentorkade akrylfärger och ringrostiga fingrar. Men kul var det!
Måste köpa på mig lite nya färger.... snart...
Så här blev resultatet iaf. Älskar turkost och rosa :)





Tack för titten =)
