Purple and green at Punky Scraps

Today I want to show you my DT layout for Punky Scraps May challenge. We have an awesome color combination for you – purple and green. We also have an inspiring sketch. Here is my interpretation:


I used watercolour to create a background inspired by the sketch using purple and green. I also doodled circles to frame one sticker, one flair button and one heart.

Here are two close ups:


I really loved this color combination! I hope you do too. Welcome to play along!!

Liebster award with questions and answers

SannaLippert send me an Award and has passed on some questions for me to answer. I thought this was a very fun award so I definetely wanted to answer and pass it on (it has taken quite a while, though). I am not very good at English but I have done my best. Before reading my answers you should go and visit Sanna‘sblog. She is a really talented and warm hearted scrapbooker who shares a lot of her tips and tricks with us. There are always something inspiring to find! Thank you Sanna for this reward. Here are my answers:

1.      What is your favorite TV soap?
Actually, I never watch TV. I prefer scrapbooking, reading etc. I think life is too short to waste it on watching TV.
2. Where would you travel to, if you had an open end budget?
In 1995, before I met my husband I spend 3 month in the countryside in Tanzania. I would love to show my husband and our daughter all the places I visited and to meet the people I got to know there. And of course I would go to a place I have never visited before. That would be Angkor wat in Cambodia.
3. What was your favorite thing to do as a child?
Running and drawing.
4. Share a funny story that has happened to you
Some weeks ago my 5-year old daughter said. I am just growing and growing. Then she looked at me and said: But you are not, you are just becoming a grandma.

5. Share a photo from where you live – someting typical to your country
This is our favorite place:

6. Why do you scrap?

2% to save memories, 49% to relax, 49% to have fun.

7. What would you like to learn, but never did?


8. What was your dream job as a kid?

I am not sure, but I think I wanted to be a teacher.

9. Who would you like to meet in real life?

My grandmothers aunt Gerda. She chose never to marry, she travelled to foreign countries and was partying back in the 1920’s. I met her when I was I child, but I did not know that her life was so unusual.

10. What´s on your bucket list?

I want a new, huge, balcony on our house. A bit too expensive at the moment. But we will soon build a long pergola in the garden and I have been longing for that for a long time. If you meant something for scrapbooking I need some small text stickers to use for my project life pages.

So now it is my turn to ask questions and I chose these 10 persons to answer them:

1.    Decribe yourself with tree Words.

2.    What is your favorite thing to do except for scrapbooking?

3.    Why do you scrap?

4.    What is your favourite scrapbooking product?

5.    What is your Dream?

6.    Where would you travel to, if you had an open end budget?

7.    Who would you like to meet in real life?

8.    What is your favourite book?

9.    What would you like to learn, but never did?

10. Share a photo from where you live – someting typical to your country

Please feel free to answer in any language you want!

Mother and child

This month challenge at ARTastic is about motherhood and flowers. There is also a painting by Robert Hagan to be inspired by. Here is my take on the challenge:

And here is the painting:
My photo shows me and my daughter. She tells me every day that she loves me more than space (lucky me!). I am not allowed to respond with the same words so I answer that I love her more than universe. I wanted to save it to the future so I wrote it in two speech bubbles.

I only had one stamp with a speech bubble but I wanted one on each side. What to do? I stamped it on cardstock, turned it around, held it against a window, draw the mirrored speech bubble with a pencil and filled its lines with a black pen.

On the background I made some flowers using water colors. If you want a tutorial on how to make them you will find one here at ARTastic.

Here is a close up of the flowers:

Thanks for looking! I hope you want to join in on the challenge at ARTastic! I am donating a RAK this month. :)
