Lot's of messy paint...

I made this art journaling page for Pyssloteket, mostly using acrylic paint but also some pens and a little Glimmer Mist.

I wrote my journaling and then coverd it up by stitching the doilies to my page. It's possible to lift them, to read the journaling underneath. Stamping, writing, painting and sewing...

A list of all the supplies can be found here.

5th and Main

The September Cocoa Daisy kit will be available for non-subscribers on September 1st!

Here are the layouts I created so far. I used the main kit, the Daily Special add on , the Flower stand add on and the wonderful gelatos from the Project Art kit.

Project Art August

I've totally forgotten to post the pages I made using the August Project Art kit from Cocoa Daisy!

The kit contained a brayer - so much fun - and three bottles of Distress Paint and a whole bunch of fun die cuts and vintage pieces.

Here are a couple of the pages I made, using the Project Art kit combined with the main kit + add ons.

I mant, you mant...

She has grown so much this summer...! :)

She is talking so much and we really love listening to her. She is exploring her own will and the way it interacts with other people and their intentions.

Very often she tells us what we want to do... "You want to read a book to me" or "you want to go to the sandbox"... Except that she says "mant" instead of "want". Crazy cute, if you ask me.

I created this layout for Pyssloteket, using beautiful papers from Inkido. A complete list of the supplies can be found here.

We are back...

...home again after a wonderful week of fun family adventures. Relaxing, exploring, hanging out together...

The two big kids go back to school tomorrow and I'm trying hard to catch up on everything. I go back to work on Monday but I don't really want to think about that just yet. I can't believe how fast these weeks have gone by. I have had a fabulous summer!

A couple of more paintings...

Two smaller paintings made with Montana spray paint (in the background) and lots of Liquitex acrylic paint. These are about 20x30 cm each.

I have been painting again... finally! I find that it's a bit difficult to get started when I haven't been painting for a while, but once I get going... wow, it's addictive! I don't want to stop! :) This is one out of four paintings I've been working on during the past couple of weeks.

I have so many ideas. The paintings never turn out exactly the way I was thinking or hoping, but I constantly learn new things and I truly enjoy the process of exploring, practicing and learning.

This was done with mostly acrylic paint, some heavy gel medium and a pen.

On my wishlist today, except for more hours in the day: an easel and a big studio! :)

Waiting for the boat...

I created this layout for Pyssloteket, using a paper from the Kaisercraft Base Coat collection. I used some Dylusions spray in White Linen (together with the Honeycomb stencil by Ronda Palazzari and Crafter's Workshop) and Funky Fuschia and some fab numerical rub ons from Tim Holtz. I also love the pink tape! All the details about the supplies can be found in the Pyssloteket blog.
