:: Mixed-media tag ::

Today I´m at a live crop in Avesta. It´s my first time at this crop so I hope I will have a great time! But I have the best friends so I´m sure it will be fab! This day is a bit special for me and my hubbie! We met at mutual friends wedding 23 years ago! One dance later and we never let go of each other! We moved in together after one month, got engeaged after eight month, got married after four years and got our very loved child after twelve year together! I have now spent more time of my life with Anders that I did without him and that feels wonderful!

This tag I made for a month ago at another crop. You can see the first one in the earlier post.

I buy my tags at Pyssloteket and this is a large one. I made my background with gesso and a stencil. I added paint, Acrylic Ink, spray, stamps and lots of glitter.

I always use Archival Ink pads for my mixed-media projekts. For this tag I used stamps from Prima and My Minds Eye.

:: Romantic tag ::

Lucky me I attended a crop in Uppsala a month ago! My blog would be so empty otherwise!
I took on three different challenges that day and that is much for a slow scrapper as me! The last challenge was to make three tags in different styles. You was to make one romantic, one cool and one in mixed-media style. This is my romantic one. I will not show you the cool one because it was a bit sloppy perfomed due to lack of time. I will show you the Mixed-media tag soon.

I used papers from Prima and layered them up. I also added Stickles at the edges and rhinestone swirls. The pretty flowers are from the amazing shop Tresord de luxe. Really posh flowers! The lady is fussy cutted from a Prima paper.
I actually won this challenge :) Yay!

:: A card for a color challenge ::

This card I made for a challenge at a live crop I attended a couple a weeks ago. It was a color challenge. To get your colors you draw two, or if you was brave as me ;),  three strings of yarn from a paper bag. I got dark pink, royal blue and grey´ish green.

I used a stamp from Wee Stamps. Darling cute! Colored with Copics.

I used two different dies from Spellbinders, a punch from Martha Stewart and Roses and Cherry Blossoms from Papirdesign and Wild Orchid Crafts.

:: Christmas angel for Denisängelprojektet ::

Here is the fourth canvas and the last for this week. This time I made a Christmas Angel.
I struggled a bit to get her to be in focus but after painting the fern branches it looked a bit better.

I really wanted her to look a bit whimsical and gave her also a large Poinsettia as hair embellishment.
Her wings have not grown so much yet but all wings counts. Curly hair with both gold and glitter add to the whimsical look. Hope you like her!

Behind the buttons, rhinestones from Prima, I used rub-ons.

Layer. layer and layer! So fun to create!

:: Angel canvas in brown and gold ::

Here is my third canvas! Today I have a Angel canvas in brown and gold.
The text in Swedish say - Friends are like Angels lifting us up when our own wigs are a bit broken. I think it´s a sweet way thinking of friends!

First I didn´t like her at all but after giving her a wreath that changed. Now I think she´s really pretty with her long dark hair, lace dress and sparkling wings.

I made the dress with different laces and small buttons. I also covered the dress with Tattered Angel Glimmer Glam Chandelier.

:: Angel canvas for Denisängelprojektet ::

Today I will show you my second canvas I created for the Denisängelprojektet.
I actually made three different Angel canvas so there will be two more. Hope you will like them!
This is actually a bit more turquoice in real life.

I think she´s a cutie and I hope some one will buy her when she arrive at Ushas.

I use lot of textures and layers on my canvases! I also think it´s fun to use lace for even more textures. Bling is always a good thing! 

I often use Texture paste and Acrylic Ink together. I think they blends really pretty together!
I use a ton of rub-ons both in black and white. Most of them are from Kaiser Craft. Here I also used some from Tim Holtz.

:: Denisängelprojektet ::

This week I will show projects I created for the "Denisängelprojektet". I have created several canvases that I will donate to the project. They will sell them at market and fairs. The following text will be in Swedish because this organisation collect money in Sweden and send them to Panzi Hospital in Kongo. There are so many horrible things going on in the world and this is one of my ways to give back a bit. How can you help another human?

Text hämtad från Ängelprojektets Facebook sida:
"DenisÄngelProjektet syftar till att hjälpa de utsatta barnen och kvinnorna som behöver hjälp på Panzisjukhuset i Kongo.

Den här sidan handlar om att medvetandegöra det våld, den tortyr och de våldtäkter som barn och kvinnor utsätts för i krigets Kongo.

Vi önskar också se en ökning i solidarisk handling, genom att uppmuntra ekonomisk stöttning till Panzisjukhuset som gör allt de kan för att hjälpa de drabbade. Du kan göra en direktinsättning på Handelsbanken: 6684-661390292 (Sigfrid Deminger).
Om du vill göra en allmän donation, går det bra att sätta in en valfri summa på kontot. Skriv gärna #StandWithPanzi, så ser vi att budskapet gått fram :).

Du kan också beställa en ullängel, som Usha Deminger gör med mycket kärlek. Då kan du skriva följande i meddelandefältet (vid inbetalningen) när du gör din isättning: "ängel + ditt namn".
Om du vill komma i kontakt med Usha Deminger, kan du mejla henne på:

Ängeln kostar minst 150 kr.

Papperspysslare (scrappare) uppmanas att göra och sälja kort - till förmån för DenisÄngelProjektet.

Det finns också duktiga "pärlare" och stickare/virkare i vårt avlånga land... Små bidrag - som är lättfraktade - är också tacksamma att sälja på marknader m m.

Tack vare att DenisÄngelProjektet är en "liten" verksamhet, kan du vara trygg med att varenda krona går till verksamheten. Usha tar inte betalt för något.

Allt arbete är frivilligt och ideellt."

Om du vill veta mer, kan du besöka DenisÄngel-bloggen via denna adress:

My first canvas is one with cute sheeps on. Usha use her own sheeps wool to make the Angels so I think this is a fun canvas for this project!

I learned to make this sheeps during a online class with Junelle Hallstrom Jacobsen.
I start with decide what message I want my canvas to have and then it just come to me. We all need to dare to be different and go our own way!

I wanted the canvas to be fun and made whimsical flowers and a fun hat for one of the sheep.
Aren´t he cute!!!!

:: My very first ATC cards ::

I think it´s amazing that after almost ten years as a scrapbooker I can try something for the very first time! It really shows how many different things there are to learn within this genre.
For the crop I attended two weeks ago we got a challenge in advance to make ATC cards. I took on the challenge and made six in my collection. I gave away five but wanted to save one for myself.

The theme for this challenge was Circus, magic and Varité. 
I started with different sprays. Then I added stamps, rub-ons and a bit doodeling. The hat I first stamped on old book paper and then cut it out. I added my words and some glitter and then I was finished. The hat stamp is from Blue Fern Studios.

:: I´m back with a winner layout ::

Sorry for publishing so seldom in my blog! I have had almost zero energy to use for creative things. Although I have been at two crops and there I made some projects. Finally I took some photos of them and now I can show you some of my August and September projects.

This layout I made at a live crop for a sketch challenge. I won! Yay!

I used a Prima paper from the latest collection and beautiful chipboards from Blue Fern Studios.

Please come back to the blog! I have scheduled ten new posts!

Lot of different flowers from Prima, Papirdesign and I am roses.
