And a card...

How can it be Wednesday already? This week is flying by!

I have a card to share today. I mainly used the Cocoa Daisy January kit. The feather stamp set is soooo fab!

Double Feature... the name of the February Cocoa Daisy kit!

There is so much fun going on over at Cocoa Daisy rigth now! CHA was fab, even if I was only able to join in as "flat Anna". =) The team has grown and I adore all the girls and their fabulous creations in the gallery!

Christine continues to put together the most amazing kits. Here is my first layout, using the February main kit + a couple of stickers from the Starring Role add on.  The stamp with the stars... sigh... I love it so much! :)

The flair and the circle behind it are exclusives from Ormolu, so so cute!

Tuva still sleeps like this sometimes, but of course it's not happening as often as before. I took this photo this Saturday... sooo cosy...

The new pie chart stencil comes with the main kit and it's so fun to see all the different ways it's been used by the team. I colored it in using distress inks and then I filled some of it in with a black pen. And again I used the stamp with the stars... This was made using the main kit + the Viewmaster Reel stamp set.

And my third layout... from Alva's first day of school. I wrote down some thoughts about her first months in school, and put the letter in the cute red/white envelope. I used the main kit and some paper from the Feature Presentation add on.

Tattered Angels Love...

Yay, I finally found the time to write a blog post! :)

I've created this small canvas for Tattered Angels. For the background I used gesso together with a stencil from Crafter's Workshop. I then covered it with the white Chalkboard Glimmer Mist Chalk. When the chalkboard was dry I dripped and splattered Glimmer Mist Party Pink on top.

The hearts were cut from a 12x12 canvas sheet from Canvas Corp. I painted them with some gesso and then covered them with Glimmer Glam Chandelier.

The chipboard wings were painted with gesso and covered with Glimmer Glaze Icicle.

In this second image you can see a glimpse of what the Glimmer Glam does to the canvas hearts... on the top of the hearts... do you see the sparkle? :)

I hope you're having a fun and relaxing weekend!

Tired, tired, tired...

Yep, that's right. I feel so tired and not at all ready for a new week starting. But there's no way of stopping that from happening and I guess I'll just have to get on the ride and hope for the best. :)

Art journaling page... made using pencil, neocolor II crayons, acrylic paint, coloured pencils and mostly Cocoa Daisy stamps. The butterfly stamp is Purple Onion Designs. The text says "you are stronger".

Painted and misted background...

I've created this layout for Pyssloteket, using lots of yummy Chalkboard Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

I started out by adding a bunch of decos to my background and then painted the background with acrylic paint, but I wasn't happy with the result until I added the mist on top of the paint. I also splattered some Glimmer Glam on top of the mist.

The decos, lace, doilies, ribbon, the feather... and of course gesso, paint and mist and glam... it's all availabe at Pyssloteket! :)

My thoughts about this new year...

First of all - thank you soooo much for all your sweet comments regarding my video for the Creative Jump Start! Each and every comment is sooo appreciated and you are making me a very happy girl! :) Also, a huge thank you to Nat for inviting me and for putting so much hard work into organizing the event! I'm really looking forward to the rest of the videos. There's still a whole lot of January left!

Now onto some art journaling...

I was very happy to be invited as a guest at the Art for myself blog! The January theme is "my thoughts about 2013" and this is what I created.

Daycare, a flat Anna, fabric and mist...

Helloooo! It's Friday! It's been a crazy week. The big kids have gone back to school and my baby girl has started going to daycare! She spent three days there together with her Dad and today he left her at 9 am and picked her up at 2 pm. On her own for the first time. She did so well! I'm sort of expecting a setback next week, but I guess we can't know what will happen. Perhaps it'll all be good. It's both amazing and fantastic to realize what she is capable of and a bit sad, that she is growing up so quickly...

I am so excited for everyone attending CHA-W this year! A whole bunch of the Cocoa Daisy girls are meeting up and I am a bit sad that I'm not joining them, but very happy to be there in a flat version. =) You can follow the adventures of the flat CD designers by following @CocoaDaisyKits on Instagram! :)

This is a layout I've created for Tattered Angels. I covered my entire background with fabric, applied some gesso and then misted with Glimmer Mists Blarney and Key Lime Pie, and Chaklboard Mists Teal High Heal and Seven Seas. I've also used Glimmer Glam and Glimmer Glaze and the heart was made out of cardstock, covered with cheese cloth.

Misting, stamping and adding some glossy...

I've forgotten to post this little tag that I made a while ago. It was created using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (colours Marmalade, Candy Corn and Sun Sisters), the Cocoa Daisy Mod Leaves stamps, my old MM magnetic stamps set and some Glossy Accents. I love the effect of the Glossy Accents on top of the mist!

Splattering Glam...

Happy new year to all of you! I hope 2013 will be a fabulous year!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I've created for Tattered Angels. I've been splattering some Glimmer Glam to create the background - so much fun! :) I used the colours Caspian sea, Macadamia and Organic Garden.

I just love the glam! :)

I used a stencil designed by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer for the Cocoa Daisy Art Journal Every Day December kit, together with gesso, to add some texture to the tag. I then misted it with Glimmer Mist Key Lime Pie and Simply Sheer Teal.
