Mixed Media Ampersand - Artists Live Show

Hello Hello Everyone!  Today I was up at Artists Live Ustream Show teaching how to recreate this little Ampersand using loads of Prima Products and my new favorite - the Izinks!

I've used a MDF figure and I added loads of fun mixed media techniques using stencils, modeling paste, texture paste and gesso. I also added some Viva decor - Inka Gold on the top of everything.

I added a couple of metal items like the barn stars from Finnabair's collection, rustic gears and a resin frame and of course loads of lovely flowers. If you would like to see how the project was made please check out the recording below.



I really liked making this project.. It's a fantastic gift for a wedding, for a couple of friends. 

The wings on my project are from Tim Holtz with Prima Marketing Barn Stars and Nobs. Isn't the texture amazing? 


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Would love to hear what you think about my project. Hugs!

Mixed Media Rust Effect Altered Box

Happy New Year everyone! A new year means new beginnings and I thought I'd start the new year with a little share of one of my resent projects. I made this as a gift for my aunt that turned 60 i November. An Altered tin with Finnabair's Rust effect Paste.

My base for my project is a sardin type tin that I've used loads of Finnabair's fantastic mediums to alter.

I added loads of microbeads, and shine to my project using Lindy's Stamp Gang mists. I love the dark blue mica that shines trough here.

Would you like to see how I altered this little tin? Please take a look at the video below.


I've used a bunch of vintage items like crochet items, a coin and some other little trinkets. The photo of my aunt is for her confirmation and she's about 15 years old. 

The pocket watch was from last years release from Finnabair. I glued her photo onto a glass pebble and added it inside. The ribbon is colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang mists. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Would love to hear what you think about my little project. HUGS!

Glass Jar Ornament - DT Maya Road

I'm all about ornaments this year and I did another video tutorial using gorgeous Maya Road products to make it. Even though Christmas eve is over and some of you might take down your trees. It's the best time to using some of your christmas embellishments before you clear them all away. And Christmas comes next year as well..  :) :) and isn't this the cutest little gift?

So I took an empty baby food jar and did a little wintery scene in side with a reindeer and bottle brush trees.

Would you like to see how I made my ornament? Please take a look at the video below.


Like I said in the video I do recommend using some sort of Heavy Body gel to glue the deer and the trees inside the jar.. It took a few days for the glue to really set in side. Cover the glue resedue with some of the snow tex. 

I embellished the lid with real pinecones and raspberry beads from Maya Road. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you liked my video. 
Hopefully you'll still have a fantastic Chrismas time.

Christmas Tree Ornament - DT Scrapberry's

Hello my lovlies! Only 3 days until Christmas and I have a christmas ornament tutorial to show you today. It's crazy how much stuff that needs to be done before the big day arrives.

I've made this out of the christmas papers from last year Scrapberry's "That special time of the year" Collection. But you can use whatever you like and scrap paper would be awesome.


I've used about 12-13 circles in different sizes going from small to large and also added tulle and some vellum paper. The glass drop underneath are from Scrapberry's. The bark stars are from Kort og Godt. Do you want to see how I made this? Please watch the video below.

 

I hope you like my video and this project is so easy to make and would be great to do with the kids. :) Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love to hear what you think :)

Christmas Bauble Card - DT Korthobby.no

Hello my lovelies! We are fast approaching Christmas and I'm haven't done nearly as much as I wanted to have done this time in December, and it doesn't seem like I'm going to get everything done anyways.. SO.. Let me share a card I made instead! :)

There's a new challenge over at the Korthobby.no challenge blog (Norwegain site) and I made a little something with some of korthobby's gorgeous trinkets.

For this card I've used papers from Magiczna Kartka that Korthobby has in her store. I diecutted with a spellbinders bauble dies and really had some fun with it!

This months challenges is "Christmas with Metals from Korthobby.no". 

So I dicuted out the bauble and some circles, including the photo of this sweet little girl. I also added some cheese cloth in there. 

I've used metal snowflakes in different types and sizes from Korthobby.no, including some bells that's tied in with the bow on top. I alsoo diecuted out som snowflakes in glitter foam paper and added flowers. Everything is covered with snowflake paste from Prima to get that frosty feel. 

I didn't do much on the insides but you can see the shape of the card at least :) 

I'm joining in these challenges with my little bauble card: 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today :) Have an awesome day!

O'Christmas time - Cards

Hello everyone... It's a sad day in the scrapbook community today. My beloved boss at the Flying Unicorns died yesterday. The whole creative team is really sad and in utter shock about this news. Our little scrapbook world has lost a wonderful and generous person and I'm happy to have know her for this past year as a Flying Unicorn Team Member. Rest in Peace sweet Alda Stevens.

Ok.. I wanted to share a card today too.. So I'm going to do that :) I have not one, but two cards today. They are very very similar and was one of my class cards this year. :)


This year I made a class using some of the older Maja Design papers. I added loads of frost embellishments like real pinecones :)


They are a tad diffrent. I've used different flowers and mini embellishements. I've used a couple of punches too :) And the picture is from two different collections.

The background paper is from the Maja Design collection - A gift for you. The picture is from the newest christmas collection. I've used snowflake paste on the egdes.


On this card I did some stamping and embossing as well.. just because this paper was more plain than the other one. :) I also added a bigger flower. But they are basically the same cards made by the same materials.

I'm joining these challenges with my card: 

Thank you for stopping by today! :) Hugs to you all :)

Finnabair Weekend - Class Project Part 4

Hi! It's the very first day of December and it's only 24 days until Christmas! How crazy is that. This year just flew past me.. So back today with my last share of my weekend with Finnabair - Anna Dabrowska at Bikuben the 11-13th of November making "The Book of Rust". I was really excited about this class and I was not disapointed.

I had so much fun making this. It has tons of layering and loads of gorgeous product from Prima and the Finnabair collection. I've used rust paste, micro beads and art stones. This is what I made out of that class.

 I used a big old book to make this. It's about 20cm x 15cm I think and I played alot with the rust paste and the metallique paints from Prima and the texture is awesome. So much to learn from Anna and her products!

There's so much microbeads, mica flakes and textures on this. It's so fabolous. I really liked  this project. If you are wondering who this lady is. It's in lady (I think a grand aunt) of Andrzej - Finnabair's husband. I really liked her face on this even though it's not her whole face.

This was the last project I did with Finnabair that weekend. And it was also the last class of the weekend. I did 4 out of 5 classes witch isn't to shabby I think.


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look at my Finnabair projects! :) Anna will be back at Bikuben next November 24-26th. I hope I get to play again! :D

Finnabair Weekend - Class Project Part 3

Hello lovelies! It's time to share my third project for the Finnabair weekend at Bikuben the 11-13th of November. This class project was the first I made and we learned all about the use of sculpture medium in the "Verdigris" class.

For this class we made a shadowbox canvas.. I have to say that I wasn't really happy with the way mine turned out.. and I wasn't able to "fix" it in a way I would like it.. but I'm going to share it anyways. :)

So the kit was so filled to the brim with loads of lovelyness. All kinds of metals, fabric, lace and flowers. I added them to my frame and this is what I came up with.
I don't know why I do not like it that much but I do think it's because of the face. I didn't get it right I think. I like all my layers and the textures, and it was a fun project to make and of course you learn so much. You really can't see that spoon that we where suppose to use as a focal point. This piece is sprayed with Primary Elements and painted with gesso and metallique paints. 


I love the Finnabair Mechanicals. They are so easy alterable and they looked so good on this project.

You can see part of the spoon I used on my canvas. I have to say it was a fun class and I liked the project, I'm just not happy with my project. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today :)

Mixed Media Notebook - Live Ustream Show - DT Scrapberry's

Hello everyone! Today I want to share with you my little notebook I made with loads of Scrapberry's supplies and mixed media products Live on the Artists Live Ustream Channel. It's a christmassy project and it can be used for anything.

I made my book with Scrapberry's Christmas paper from last years line. These papers are called: "That Special time of the Year" line.

I also made a shakerbox in the top right corner and added loads of detail. If you would like to see the process of making this, please take a look at the video below.



I used a whole list of Scrapberry's products. If you would like to see the products used please go to my post on the Scrapberry's blog. 

A little closeup of the shaker box on the book that I've cut out from one of the diecuts in the diecut sheet found in the collection. All of the embellishements are also from Scrapberry's.

Thank you so much for stopping by me today and make sure to visit the Scrapberry's blog for more projects and fabolous inspiration.

Merry Christmas Card - DT Maya Road

Hello lovelies! Today it's my day over at the Maya Road blog and I'm all into making Christmas cards these days. So I've used some awesome Maya Road products and made a little something.

I've played with some papers from Studiolight but the dies, envelope and little button are all from Maya Road. The flowers are Wild Orchid.


I love using Maya Road envelopes on my cards. They give such great accent and layer. I broken out my sewing machine this time. I haven't used that in ages. Maybe because my room has been piling up with stuff lately and now my creativity is back and I enjoy my room more.


The title and snowflake are both awesome dies from Maya Road. They die-cut really well! I used a thin chipboard piece from quickutz on this. The chipboard is a bit thicker than cardstock.


I'm joining in these challenges with my christmas card:
