?!R ATC - Prima DT Call


I'm trying my luck for the Prima team and blogged the three application projects in one post already. During the month I'm now blogging each one individually also with the detail shots and some words about them also. This is my second project, some ATCs.


  

It's a set of three. I used green Mica and Glass Glitter in the cards to give them a fresh, springy look. The color also represents the start of something new and is hopefully an omen. The bases have paper layers, stamping and mists on them. On top is a diecut flower pattern and then the glimmering details.

As always, these cards are up for grabs! Or rather there's just one left as I've sent two of them to new homes already. And there's also one of the drink ATCs (link) looking for a home. So if you'd like to have one, please mail me!

In a few days we'll also be making something similar to these in Salo. There's still one spot left in the workshop, so please mail me if you want to participate! And if Finland is way too long for you, I'm travelling to Prague this fall, would love to see you there

Blue haired - Mixed Media Place


Last two days I've been posting some art journal spreads I did back in Egersund where I was invited to teach. After workshops I crafted in the crop and played with some few things I brought with me in the workshops. 

For this third spread I was inspired by Britt Sviggum’s art. She was sitting beside me and she also was one of the arrangers of the crop. She was doing a lovely little painting to her journal so I decided to have a go at drawing as well. I used mists like watercolours and also added touches of stamping and Mica to the page.

So if you ever feel stuck and uninspired, limit your choice of mediums! Give yourself permission to use only a few supplies and see what you can come up with!

Bloom - Mixed Media Place


Yesterday I shared first of three pages I created while I was attending a crop in Egersund, Norway where I was invited to teach. All of the pages were blogged at Mixed Media Place's blog

This second spread continues the same spring and blooms line I had going on the first one. If you compare the two I guess you can start seeing what I had with me and what we were using in the workshops – mists, Mica Powders, Glass Beads, Mechanicals and pens.

The background in this one is again made using the mists. I sprayed a few colors to the book, shut it and looked how the colors had spread. The blooms are made using Mechanicals as the base and then decorated with an epoxy sticker turned around and brushed with Mica. The bigger bloom also has the Glass Beads in it.

Hello Spring - Mixed Media Place


The start of this year was exceptional for me. I got invited to Norway to teach. It was magnificent and I only hope I lived up to the challenge! My workshops were a part of a weekend long crop there and during the evening, after my classes, I also got to participate.

As my luggage was full of workshop materials I had quite a limited amount of personal supplies with me. It gave a challenge to me but also provided a great inspiration. With just few things with me I needed to use materials in new ways and think outside the box so to say. I shared three art journal spreads I did while there in Mixed Media Place's blog today and shall share them in separate posts here at my own blog as well.


The green spring spread was the first I did. For this I used Glimmer Mists, pieces of product packaging, a doily I got from the site and double sided tape sprinkled with Art Sugar. There are also a few Glass Beads in there and epoxy stickers. As I only had black and grey ink with me, I used the mist also to stamp with to get more color choices. 

Wishing you a great day! Thank you for stopping by!

Scrapsession 19.-20.9.2015


Hi there! I'm so excited to share with you that I have been invited to teach in Scrapsession in September! It takes place in Prague, Czech Republic. You can find more info here (link) - the site is in Czech.

And if that wasn't enough, I get to meet Elena Olinevich in person and teach in the same event! How awesome is that!

I'm teaching two workshops there - a layout and a canvas one. They both take place on the 19th. Both include mixed media and different mediums. The layout is about layering and the canvas is a lady collage.

I would love to see you there!

Treasure at the end of rainbow - 7 Dots Studio


Hello and happy start to the new week! Today I'm sharing a layout done for 7 Dots Studio's new challenge. This time the theme is rainbows! So you need to create a project inspired by that theme and use at least one 7 Dots Studio project in it.  


Rainbows made me think not only about vibrant colors but the treasures at the end of them. So I decided to use that thought and make a page about my greatest treasure – my family. The photo suited the theme well because of the sun rays coming through the spruce branches. 

I created a watercolor style background by using the primaries and green and then layered stamping and stencilling on top using the same colors. On top I then layered papers from different collections trying to have every color present.

Can't wait to see your take on the theme! Have a great week and thank you for stopping by today!
