Experiments with acrylic paint | smooch, rub, lift

Creativity is an elixir of life. It keeps us from being dried up and brittle by keeping the essence of our life-force juiciness channeling into new ideas, projects and visions.

Fun free motion sewing

Fun free motion sewing

I love free motion sewing! If my sewing machine did too I would do it a lot more, but most of the time it ends with us really disliking each other (and the machine needle tip breaking off!). You use a special sewing machine foot, that comes with the machine most of the time, and […]

But now I’ve fallen […]

I made this on the boat to the island Gotland this spring. The first line of waves (top) is confident and rhythmic, but the second line […]

Embracing the Mistakes

Embracing the Mistakes

Studio Friday theme is By Accident. Tine says: Whatever it may be that goes wrong from time to time be sure to embrace it and see it as the adventure and discovery that it actually is. I made this teddy friend without a pattern, but from a picture I saw online when I first started […]
