Sewing...

I am in the mood for sewing. Here are some finished little things : hearts with wings for chrismas decoration, the cats are nice-smelling for the wardrobe and two little bags for everything. There are only 58 days until chrismas, so it's time for making presents...

Sewing Box in swedish "Blekinge" Style

I have found this sewing box at a swedish flea market and restorated it. The colour scheme is from traditional used colours in "Blekinge", which is a state in the south of Sweden where I often spend my vacation. I hope my mother-in-law will like the sewing box, it's her birthday present.

Skinny Alphabet Book : C for "Curiosity"


For the C page the task was to use a resist technique for the background. Do you know the feeling of curiosity ? Isn't it like dancing pirouettes because of anticipation...

Skinny Alphabet Book : P for "Passion"


This is the P page for my "reasons for arting" skinny alphabet book.
The text says : "What you do is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it."

Fish & Bird ATCs









All these ATCs were made for swaps via Künstlerdecos group.

Skinny Alphabet Book : S like "Secrets"


Creating a bookpage using any every day paperwork you have laying around for the letter "S" book page. I have used a paper for a cake plate as stencil to hide the secret picture in the background and as corner embellishment.
I like art with secrets or hidden meanings, so "secrets" are a very good reason for arting (the theme of my alphabet book).

Some ATCs




Some of the ATCs I had made in vacation after the Stempelmekka. The backgrounds are done with the gesso technique shown by Louise Kolker from Art Journey.

Skinny Alphabet Book : Letter H like "Heart"


One week later I have finished the bookpage for the Skinny Alphabet Book for the letter H. It's a project of the Paper Traders, every week a book page with a special technique. Last week the use of a dictionary definition from a word starting with H for the H book page.
The theme of my alphabet book is "reasons for arting", so I have started with "HEART". I love this painting of a young woman sitting near a window where the light is falling inside. Smooth like the light is shining on her, art is coming from the heart.
