I did this summer’s best collages (according to me) on loose pages from an old watercolour paper pad, with very little supplies. All of them fitted in my pen case and a small “art bag” I found in mom’s sewing room and asked if I could have. I love this little bag, as it contains […]
I’ve created yet another summer skirt. A quilt skirt with lots of different vintage fabrics that I like. I found all of these fabrics at my mom’s house, and I cut all the squares all by my self this time. Mom has helped me before when I did a blanket (that is not finished yet). […]
What is on your TV tonight? This is what is on mine: My beautiful white H that was specially made for me by my wood crafting friend Maria Lu. It has been in a craft exhibition at the library for a while, but now it is finally where it belongs, with me in my home. […]
An Art Journal Spread I made earlier this year, about how one should always live out loud and keep creating. Right now I’m not living out loud. I’m in silence, waiting. What about you? Did you take advantages of your day? Did you make an effort? I didn’t, today. I will try, tomorrow.
I feel excited. Nothing special has happened, nothing at all, but I feel it could. Soon, very soon. It’s the small things in life that makes me giddy today. The expectation of greater changes (like a job, a town or a place to move to). Anyway, I try not to worry right now, but to […]
A self portrait, one of many this summer! Mom is cutting my little brothers hair in the garden, and I snapped a photo of me when little bro’ held up the mirror. I love this photo of the three of us! Related PostsWinter in the garden Eye Candy | Flower Power DIY Calendar | Cream […]
A new favorite colour this year is turquoise. It is such a summery fresh colour, don’t you agree? Here are some turquoise photos for you to enjoy. Cute! Thrifted toy cat, very plastic and very turqoise. I was told his name is Pilchard, and I don’t mind. Bob-Pilchard perhaps then. And the turqoise bowl – […]
I made a card for mom before the summer started, to get her some “blue patterns” that I know she loves. She has actually bought some porcelain with these patterns. I really love them too, but they are not for me. A card for mom. Blue of course, because that’s her colour. Related PostsArt Journal […]
Another post with spreads from my Moleskine! Most of the pages/spreads are very personal and private, but these I don’t mind sharing with you. Maybe you’ll get some ideas to spark your own journaling with collage, sketching, writing, notetaking? I hope so. A collage spread with the feeling of romantic decorating and summer.
I found a ball of white wool yarn in mom’s knitting basket. I couldn’t resist it. I crocheted another amigurumi teddy bear, my first white one. I really like her blue eyes and black full eye-lashes. What do you think? This one has already moved away from home (to Kiruna!) and will be a baptismal […]
