:: More Than Words and Scrapki September Challenges ::

 I made this layout for a challenge over at More Than Words and Scrapki. This months at More than words the creative challenge was Grunge style and the word was Fearless. A very fun challenge and I really love how my layout turned out! You can see the board image here and follow the LINK to find the challenge.

At Scrapki the challenge was the word Journey. I was thinking about the journey in life my very beloved boy will have to make. I will give him all all my knowledge and a fundation of love. I hope that will be enough to make him a good person!

 I started by using a grey christmas paper from Papirdesign called Vinterstrikk. I added Gesso with my brayer and also more Gesso with a stencil called Sunrise Checker from Prima. I used different stamps from Prima with Archival Ink Jet Black.
Then I added different strips of Washitape. I wanted it more narrow in the middle so I cut them a bit shorter there. I added even more stamping to get a really grunge look! First I was thinking about adding some red color but I ended up with teal instead. I found a really nice spray from Tattered Angels called Glimmer Mist Frozen Lake.

 I wanted lots of texture and layers and used different die-cuts I found in my studio. To get the same color and add more of the nice teal I stained my edges and sprinkled the mist here and there.

 I used both twine and thread to clarify the messy style. I also sprinkled with both white and black to get more contrasts. Framing the words with some doodling makes them pop a bit!

 I wanted to play with my title a bit and get the word fearless included in a fun way. I ended up with using some stickers and this chipboard from Blue Fern Studios.

:: Baroque Ladies for a challenge at 13arts ::

I found a challenge perfect for me and my frames I created with paperclay. I took on 13arts challenge #58 called Vintage Love.
I was first inspired by the Vintage theme. From the moodboard I was inspired by the gold, the metallic lids on the glass jars, the colors, the flowers and the framing on the phone booth.

 I layered lots of different patterned papers and distressed the edges. I die-cutted the oval frame with a die from Spellbinders called Elegant Ovals.

I made my frames for my pretty ladies with molds and paperclay. I painted them with Prima art alchemy acrylic paint - Mermaid Teal, Butterfly Spells and Mermaid Sparkle. When the paint was dry I added a bit of Prima Metallic Wax Vintage Gold.

I used the small planner flowers from Prima and Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I think the gold stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts also?

 To get more gold I used a thin gold thread and I wired it around the papers many turns.

 To get a feminine touch I used different glassbeads, microbeads and loose glitter from 13arts and Prima. I really love the gold with the colors.

 On this card I added a bit of gold paper behind one of the patterned papers.

:: Altered Bread Brush ::

I made this altered bread brush back in July and finally I have made a blog post with it! This kind of work is a bit out of my ordinary comfort zone so I hope you like it!
It was very fun to make but it took me many days from start to a finished brush. There are so many layers and I needed lot of drying time. As you can see on this first photo I have used lot of yummie supplies from Prima. Not all on the photo but some of them.

The chipboards that I used are from Blue Fern Studios and the large resin ornament from Prima. I made the leaves and the butterflies with paperclay and molds. 

Besides all the sprays and paints I used Art-stones from Prima for even more textures. I also used loose glitters and micro beads. 

To get a dramatic look with lot of depth I added darker colors in the cavities and high lighted the peaks with gesso and light shades of waxes.

:: Happy Birthday Card ::

It feels like it was ages ago I created a card with a stamped image on! And even longer since I used my beloved stamps from Hänglar and Stänglar. So finally here is one card!

 I used a cute stamp from the 2006 Autumn club set. To get a polkadot dress I used my Misti and stamped the image one more time on a patterned paper from Papirdesign.

 I colored my image with my Copics. My flowers are from Prima Marketing, Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts and I am Roses.

 I think it´s really fun that you can buy chipboards from Wycinanka with Swedish words!

 The dies I used are Spellbinders Nestabilities Petit Ovals Small, Spellbinders Nestabilities Petit Scalloped Ovals Small, Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals and Spellbinders Borderabilities Curved Border Two. The papers I used are Pion Design A Day in May Beige Ornament, Papirdesign Forventning Vakre Blomster och Maja Design Summer Crush He Gives Her Flowers. I also used my sewing machine around the edges.

For my title I used a chipboard sentiment from Wycinanka. I used Prima Metallique Wax Bronze Age to get a bit more brown color. Then I added one coat of clear Ranger Embossing Powder. Last I added a tiny tint bit of loose glitter from Finnabair.

:: ATC - Steel Magnolias ::

Today I have four more ATC to show you. I found some metallic flowers when I arranged my studio during the summer and wanted to use them.

It was a bit hard to take good photos because it´s so many layers and sparkles. I hope you get a feeling how they look despite the bad photos :( 

I started with a background made in different blue shades with Acrylic inks from 13arts and Liquitex. Then I painted my chipboards called Floral Designs from Wycinanka with teal acrylic paint from Ranger Studio. I used tons of glass fillers, micro beads and different glitters. I also added a bit darker Ink around the chipboards. In the center of every metallic flowers I added a gold Enamel dot from American Crafts.

:: ATC - Blizzard ::

Today I have three ATC created with a blizzard as inspiration. 
I worked with white, grey and black to get some contrasts. I also wanted lots of textures and sparkling effects.

I started off with making my snowflakes with paperclay and molds. I also used metallic caps. I painted them both with Gesso from Prima and added Art Alchemy Metallic Wax in Old Silver.
Last I added a pearl from Papirdesign.

When I made my backgrounds I used Rainbow colors black duo from 13arts. Then I started to create lines, almost as sun rays, from the cap and towards the edges. For this I used Stickles glitter glue.

I continued to add more textures with Prima Art Stones in two sizes, glitter flakes, micro beads, paerls and Rhinestones. Last I sprinkled black Acrylic Ink from Liquitex.

When my ATC was finished I still was missing something so I added some black handdrawn lines around my edges and then I was happy with the result.

:: Lots of ATC with Lawn Fawn images ::

During the summer I made a whole bunch of ATC in a bit cleaner look with images from Lawn Fawn. I made the backgrounds in similar techniques with Distress Ink and lots of water.
On my first cards I used the stamp and die set called Plane and Simple from Lawn Fawn. I also used small and large glitters from 13arts and stickers from Tim Holtz.

On this set I used the stamp and die set called Hippo birdie to you. I also used Stitched Borders Die around my edges. The glitter are from 13arts and the Sequins from Adlibris.

How cute is this stamp?! It´s called Octopi my heart. All images are colored with my Copics.
On the last three cards I used the really cute stamp called Winter Unicorn. I find some really old rub-ons letters and used them all cards here besides the first set.
Welcome back tomorrow for more ATC!

:: I´m back with some new ATC ::

Finally back with a new post here in my blog! I have created a bit during our vacation but was to lazy to take photos ;) Here are some ATC called Amazing Nature. 

 I found some backgrounds I made earlier and covered almost all of it with burlap ribbon. Then I misted white Sisal with Color Bloom Lime Wedge and Emerald. I also sprayed my Chipboards from Wycinanka with some sprays. I added some metallic mechanicals, glitter, Prima Art-Stones and stickers from Adornit.

:: ATC - Tweets ::

 Today I have a bit more clean and simple ATC to show you. I´m still working to get my studio as I want it so my time to actually create something is a bit limited. However I have some cute ATC with Lawn Fawn stamps on my desk soon ready to be seen :)

 My first thought was to create ATC in the one layer technique. When I almost was finished I feldt I needed some glitter and texture and stickers. So my first idea is no longer ;)

 I created my background with Distress Ink Dried Marigold and Archival Ink Garden Patina. I used two differnt mini stamp sets from Prima Marketing. The flowers came from a set called Meadow Lark and the branch called Songbird. The black is stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black.

Last I added black Caviar Beads and glitters from Prima Finnabair. The word stickers are from Tim Holtz and called Chit Chat.
