Like a cave

This layout is made for Scrap Friends Sketch Challenge # 9. It’s the first time I’m entering a challenge there but this fun and original sketch caught my eye.
The picture is taken in our garden a couple of weeks ago when we were out sledding – even though it was a snowstorm. We found a place in our garden that was like a cave under a huge bush (Microbiota decussata). It was warm, calm and quiet. DD wanted to stay there and I gave her some chocolate chunks in a bowl to eat. But some snow fell from the “roof” right into the bowl and covered the chocolate. It’s a little thing, but it’s fun to remember. :)
To make the chevron pattern on the sketch I choose some PP that I wanted to use both sides of. I cut some stripes and folded them.
Thanks for looking! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!!

I forgot to show this layout here at my blog! It was shown last Sunday at Allt Om Scrap. As I told you before I wrote an article about this year’s CHA trends that was published last Sunday. At the same time we had a challenge that included some of the trends we identified. This is my contribution:

Thanks for popping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Cuddly toys safari

Another layout for a challenge... This time it’s for a sketch challenge at Svensk Scrapbooking. The photos are taken at DD’s birthday party last autumn. The weather was perfect that day and I arranged a "cuddly toys safari" in the garden with a candy bag as a prize for each one of the children. :)

And a close-up:

I Pad

This layout is made for a challenge at Mollys scrapbooking. It’s a sketch challenge and I thought it was a great sketch as you could do a lot with it.

I used Pan Pastel and acrylic paint on the background. I also used some stamps and splashed on some Dylusion Ink Spray.

The pieces of puzzle are made with a punch that I bought the other day after I wrote the article about the new CHA trends that is published at Allt Om Scrap today. It’s an issue filled with trends and I recommend you to go over there and have a look!
Thanks for looking! Take care!

This is a layout that I made for a sketch challenge at Allt Om Scrap. I thought the patterns on the sketch looked like snowflakes so I took the opportunity to scrap a picture of DD and DH when they went sledding.

I turned the sketch to make it fit with my pictures (I used two pictures instead of one). As I stood at the same place when I shot the pictures they fit together “as one”.

I used three types of snowflakes – gesso on a template, a stamp and brads. I also used some fab punchinella from Gauche Alchemy. I tried to shot a close-up to show you the way it change color.

Thanks for looking! Have a nice weekend! I hope you will find some time to scrap and relax!!

Colour challenge @ KIU

Kraft It Up is having a colour challenge this month. It’s a fabulous combination that is perfect with kraft paper. You can tell by looking at the CT work – it’s really stunning! Here’s my CT sample:

I used some Dylusion Ink Spray and doodled on the background. I also stamped some dots and splashed on acrylic paint in different colours.

Here’s a close up:
Thanks for looking!! I wish you a wonderful week full of crafting! :)

Happy new year to you all!

It’s a new year, and it’s also a new month. That means new challenges and new DT layouts to show. ARTastic have an awesome challenge this month. They also have a new sponsor for domestic participants and are offering a guest DT spot for non Austrian winners. :) What you should do to be a lucky winner is to get inspired by the incredibly 3D chalk art work ‘My Blue Angel’ by Jenny McCracken. The criteria are to use chalk or wings on your layout. Here is my take on the challenge and I used both chalk (Pan Pastel) and wings.
On the background I used Pan Pastel, Distress Ink on a template and splashed some acrylic paint. I also stamped some flowers. I cut two holes in the picture for the wings. My attempt was to create a fantasy garden to go with the wings. :)
Some close-ups:

I haven’t had a lot of time and energy left for scrapbooking and blog hopping recently but I will soon have time to visit you and look at all the gorgeous things you have created. :)
Thanks for looking!!! I wish you all a FABOLOUS 2013!
