Proof of my existence

Proof of my existence

I like how random images from my image folder shows a sort of me-ness on the page. Selected new clippings and some that are a couple of years old are joined together into a collage. In this way the art journal is full of self portraits. Images that you can read as parts of I, […]

Make a wish

Make a wish

Yesterday was my brothers 20th birthday. It was a beautiful day, and we had drinks in the garden. My dad made delicious food (as always, I adore his cooking). I was happy to be asked to bake the cake, and then to light the candles. A few seconds later my brother blew all of them […]

Let’s play with Found Poetry

Let’s play with Found Poetry

Here is another spread with lots of circle fascination, where I’ve also played with cut out words and created my own (Swedish) Found Poetry. I love these little poems!

Recycled Wool Sleaves

Recycled Wool Sleaves

I made myself “wool sleaves” this winter by cutting apart several felted wool sweater arms and sewing them together. I love to recycle wool! I sewed this on mom’s fancy sewing machine and decided to leave the selvedge on the outside for a grungy look. What do you think? Strange or fun? I thought I’d […]
