Cocoa Daisy August sneaks + Cybercrop this weekend + more...!

Lots of fun happening at Cocoa Daisy! This weekend we are having a crop to celebrate the new site - www.cocoadaisy.com. It'll be a smaller crop than most of our previous crops, but there'll still be challenges, games, prizes and lots of fun!

Please come and join us on Friday-Saturday, July 18-19! It's free and everyone is welcome!


I also have a sneak of the August kit - Modern + Vintage. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of my new favourite kits! Kits go on sale to subscribers, Monday, July 28th at 9 PM ET. The general public will be able to purchase kits and add ons starting August 1st at midnight ET.

 
Something else that I'm REALLY excited about is the news about the Day Planner kits - coming in September! I've recently discovered the slightly crazy world of filofaxes and other gorgeous planners and I'm sooo looking forward going back to using a paper planner instead of trying to survive with the calendar in my phone + too many lists on small scraps of paper that I can never find when I need them anyway... :)
 
Watch out for more sneaks coming up!

My June Project Art pages

The June Project Art kit from Cocoa Daisy contained some Dina Wakley acrylic paints + black gesso. I was really looking forward to trying Dina's paint and I wansn't disappointed! The colours are wonderful and  vibrant, they have a lovely consistency and they dry matte - perfect for a journal.

Here are the pages I created. The first one is messy and talks about my goal to run 5 km.


Life is crazy... :)

 
 
About my garden dreams... 
 

I also painted one of the cute bags that holds the Project Art kits - so much fun!

Happy, lovely moments...

The Viewfinder kit from Cocoa Daisy is now on sale - go check it out! This is a fun and fab kit that has some travel themed items, but that is totally useful also for non-travel layouts, as examplified by my layouts below... :)

This is the main kit - I really love the stitching template and the floss!


 I used the template on this layout and then covered my stitching with gesso, paint and mist.


On this layout I stitched one of the words on top of my photo. I used a white mist to add a very subtle pattern to the background.


My third layout is a bit messy and a fab example of the strategy "if you aren't happy with what you've created - add more paint!". :)

More Project Art pages...

The journaling on the first of the pages I'm sharing today says "Sometimes I'm trying to save the world"... :)

 
There is some hidden journaling on this page and the arrows are keeping it closed.
 
 
The page above, as well as the next two pages below, were made using the October Project Art kit from Cocoa Daisy (it's still available!). The Ferro paint gives the pages a fab texture!
 



For the next two pages I used the February Project art kit + the main kit and add ons of course. The tree/hearts stamp is sooo pretty!





 Thank you so much for stopping by!

Project Art pages...

I have so many art journaling pages using the Project Art kits from Cocoa Daisy that I yet haven't shared! 

Have you seen the totally new look of the Cocoa Daisy webpage? I really love the fresh design. Another thing that I'm very excited about is the Cocoa Daisy Online Magainze! The June issue is an abbreviated version but it's looking soooo good and I'm really looking forward to what is coming!

This page was made using the April Project Art kit, containing Silks Acrylic glaze...



It's not all that easy to take photos that show the shimmering but this is a try...

 
This is one of the pages I made using the March Project Art kit, containing PanPastels (it's still available!).
 




...and this one was also made using the March kit.



And finally I want to share one of the pages I made using the April kit. Here I didn't use the silks much, but the book pages were included in the Project Art kit and for all pages I've used bits and pieces from the main kit + add ons too.



More pages are coming...! I hope you all have a wonderful day!

A card...

I made this card for Pyssloteket a little while ago. The wood veneers are colored with Dylusions Spray Ink and glued down into the shape of a star, using a die cut as a template. You can see images of the process here.
