Little flower bear

Little flower bear

I’ve crocheted quit a lot this summer, traveling around. I crocheted some softies, but non of the small creatures have a faces yet… This teddy bear though that I created the other day, I finished very quickly: It’s a flower bear in blue for my mother’s growing collection of bears. This bear is a little […]

Found a Decoupage Magazine

Found a Decoupage Magazine

I will post some photos from my trip to France (and Heidelberg!) later on in my blog, but for now I’ve just scanned this magazine and some spreads from it. I got this magazine when I was in France, in a little magazine shop out in the country. It felt like winning the lottery. Who […]

ATC in fabric

ATC in fabric

Is summer over already? The rain keeps poring down any way (+40 to 50 mm so far), so I’ve been hiding in my mothers small but beautiful sewing room. Not to steal her fabric I looked in her sewing trash bin, and found lots of small scraps which I feel is to good to throw […]

Brocante

Brocante

Brocante is French for flea market. Have you ever visited one? I’m back in Sweden and hey, it’s Tuesday! So here is a self portrait of me from this summer in France: I took it at a brocante in Ardeche, France. Brocante is French for flea market, and it’s a new word for me. But […]

This is a watercolour painting I made a couple of years ago. It’s in a glass frame, but not hung anywhere right now. I might just do that, I like the feeling it is giving me. Related PostsSeeing Embroidery Everywhere Art Journal Peek: Put a bird on it! Fun Spraydate with lots of Spraypaint and […]

Vintage red suitcase

Vintage red suitcase

Found a red suitcase while thrifting. It was really dirty and I want to change the fabric lining, but didn’t find the time for this summers traveling. Maybe next time this will be my altered art kit bag? Also found this beauty: This is from a new printed book with lots of pages that showed […]

Höga kusten

Höga kusten

Höga kusten (Hight Coast) is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s so beautiful – almost everywhere you look the nature is inspiring and great. Last summer I tried to paint (with my watercolours) the sunset behind the spruce forest, but the colours kept changing and my painting too… hehe. Messy! Related PostsArt […]

New Scrapbook Papers

I got new scrapbook papers, wanna see? I love pretty papers, all of them. But sometimes I think that it’s the searching and finding them that is the most fun. If you keep your eyes open there are pretty papers everywhere, not just new scrapbook papers like these, but in everyday life. You can use […]

Distress paper

Distress paper

I recently saw a blog post where someone made distress paper tags that looked really cool. They were made them using Distress ink pads, but I don’t own any ink pads at all. Instead I just crumbled ordinary paper and tried out my own method of distress paper!
