For ever Rain {Video}

I made this layout with inspiration from this moodboard at the Lemon Owl blog. 

The mix of colors are gorgeous and really inspiered me. The layout also comes with a little video tutorial down below...

I took this photo one day while waiting for the bus to leave for work. I love how the rain keeps on pouring even though the sun shines. Just marvellous how the fall weather can be!

The little beads was a gift from my mom.

Christmas ATC´s {video}

I made a couple of Christmas ATC´s for a swap the other day and recorded a video tutorial meanwhile.

Cute but nasty

Since years back I have been a subscriber to Cocoa Daisys kits. I love that the kits are so versatile and that they come with a lot of fun decorations. Even though my style of scrapbooking is more mixed media than the kits I find ways to use the papers and embelllishments. This page was made for one of thier challenges and I used the October kit "Blue Ridge".

To add my personal touch to this page (the messy part....) I added the cool badge from SODAlicious plus some ink platters and some doodeling. The black frame are from SODAlicious as well.

You find more info about the "Blue Ridge" kit here.

Thankful Art Journal - OLW #88

There is a lot of things to be thankful about in my life. But the modern mankind seldom sit down and reflect over things like that, me neighter. Instead of trying to be perfect and to have all the "right" items we should think of the things we actually have. Maybe that should be our new motto in this family - to be thankful. Instead of thinking of tha bad things that happend during a day we should list the things that we are thankful that day.

So today I am thankful for:

- the sun and that I live in a part of the world that has such a clean and crisp air this time of year.
- that I have a job that allowes me to have days off.
- that my kids woke up with a smile on their faces saying "good morning Mom - you are the best ever".
- that our ecomomy allowes us to go out on fancy restaruants from time to time, like tonight.

This is my Art Journal for the One Little Word challenge with the word Thankful!

The base is my trused old book that I converted to my art journal. I have used ink from Maya Road, Dylusions, 13@rts, Tattered Angels and Heidi Swapp. Stamps from Cocoa Daisy, SODAlicious and Kelly Purkey. Stencil from Ronda Palazzari. Sentiments from 7 Dot´s Studio.
