I just listned to Jennifers show and learned that I won one of Claudine Helmuths books! I’m so happy! I’m looking forward to getting to learn more about her style and maybe try it out myself!

Today it is Studio Friday friday for me, so I took some photos of flower treats this morning. I haven’t bought special flowers because I didn’t need to. This is what was blooming right in front of my nose:

Orchids in my window
I just love the Phileanopsis orchids. I forget to water them so many times, still they bloom like there is no end. And they do bloom forever too, weeks and weeks of beauty!

I also got a red rose from Minister for Justice in Sweden, Tomas Bodström this week. He was talking about politics in town when I had ice cream with a friend. On Sunday Sweden has election and I’m going to vote for the third time in my life.

Back to the subject of beauty, today I’m linking you to some great online art gallerys, private and official, of mixed media, collage and loads of inspiration. Check these out:

Can you tell why I haven’t been making any collages for three weeks? (except for the 20 minute challange I sent to CraftSanity)? It’s because I spend way to much time at the computor surfing for beauty insteed of trying to make some of my own! Next week I’ll try to be a better (smarter?) artist.
