I tried to take some photos of my daughters, wearing their new jackets. But they had more fun goofing around, than posing the way I wanted them to. So my revenge is to scrap the photos anyway.... *muahaha*
The papers are mainly from Bo Bunny. I put som gesso over the background. Then added colors again by using Distress Ink and stencils. And also some random stamping.
Then I created some layers behind the photos, with papers, tags, punchinella and washi tape. Finally some buttons, hearts, stars and splatters to finish it.
Another birthdaycard with many layers, this time more masculine.....
I made this for a former colleague of mine, who recently turned 60.
The papers are mainly from Authentique, combined with some tissue tape and punchinella.
I used lots of metal ornaments, from both Tim Holtz and Finnabair. And then I thought the card was a bit too dark, so I went overboard with splatters of white gesso. (Next time I'll stop a bit sooner...)
I always have so much fun making masculine cards :-)
I recently took a class with Linda Brun, where she showed us how to build a card with lots of layers. And also use leftovers and different recycled items.
I got really inspired, so I created this card using the same techniques.
I stamped one of Dina Wakley's scribbly birds, and embossed it with black powder. Then I colored it with watercolors.
I used lots of different papers and tags to build the layers. And also some cheesecloth that I had dyed black for another project, but then ended up not using it.
Some feather-diecuts (also leftovers from another project), and the small birds are a die from Joy Crafts.
I found some corrugated cardboard, and some pieces of punchinella on my desk. Finally I used some gesso, and stamping to make it all come together.
And of course, some splatters with white gesso mixed with water, and gold ink.
I really like the challenges at the More Than Words-blog, and now I finally found the time to enter for the first time.
The January challenge is Celebrate and Bling, and this is my take on it.
The photo shows my daughter at Christmas Eve, having fun decorating herself with the ribbons from the gifts she was opening.
I decided to go with black and gold. A combination I've never tried before, at least not for a layout. The patterned paper from Papirdesign got some strokes with black Gesso. Then I mixed soft gel medium with gold Mica powder and applied through a stencil.
At first I thought the gold looked too reddish, and wouldn't match the other gold elements I wanted to use. But decided to go with it anyway, and actually using two different shades of gold just made it more interesting.
I combined pieces of paper, vellum, doilies and chipboard behind the photo. The gorgeous chipboard comes from SnipArt, and I almost felt bad for cutting it into pieces....
Some washitape, glitter hearts, lots of sequins and bling.
I also splattered with white gesso and gold ink.
Not easy to take good photos this time of year, but the layout is sure sparkling in real life.
And I love how sometime things turn out even better than your original plan.
It's been too long since I've updated my blog. Got caught up in making Christmas cards, and totally forgetting about posting them. Too late for Christmas cards now, so here is something quite different.
I made this card for my husbands colleague, who recently retired.
The image of a tractor (found on Internet) was just perfect. I used papers from 7 Dots Studio and Joy Crafts. Mixed media die from Tim Holtz, and stamps from North Star Stamps.
Black and turquoise are one of my favourite color combinations.
I made this card for a friend of mine, and was totally inspired by a gorgeous card made by Kristina Werner.
Completely fell in love with the triangle stamp, and it didn't take long before it arrived in the mail...
I just love the colors of fall, so I chose very different colors than the original card. But followed the same steps to create the background, using white embossing powder, and then different Distress Inks.
The sentiment is embossed in gold, and I put together some leaves and skeleton leaves behind it.
Finally some sequins, attached with Multi Medium Matte from Ranger.
I've made several backgrounds like these, in different colors. And it is so much fun every time to see how they turn out.
Søndag var det farsdag, og jeg laget et Kvikklunchkort til min far.
Synes disse kortene er enkle og kjekke å lage. Jeg brukte Kraftkartong til å brette kortet, og ellers bare restepapir. I made this envelopecard containing the Norwegian chocolate called Kvikklunch for my father.
Brukte et stempel fra Papirdesign, og ellers printet tekst. (Oppdaget at jeg ikke hadde noen farsdagsstempler i det hele tatt.....)
Et stempel fra Kort & Godt inni kortet, og borrelåslukning fra Joy! Crafts. The base is made of Kraft cardstock, and then just some leftover papers to decorate it. Stamps from Papirdesign and Kort & Godt. It is closed using Hook & Loops from Joy Crafts.
Må igjen vise kortene mine døtre laget, med bare bittelitt hjelp fra mor..... ;-)
Et kort med embossingfolder, stempling og diecuts. Det andre med bakgrunn laget med stensil og distress ink, litt stempling og Dymo.
Mottakeren var ihvertfall veldig fornøyd! :-) Finally showing the cards my daughters made for their father, with just a little bit help from me.... :-)
Mitt navn er Solfrid, med nicket Jonna på diverse forum.
Er bosatt i Sandnes, med mann og tvillingdøtre på 12 år.
Sistnevnte er vel hovedgrunnen for at jeg rotet meg borti scrapping. Og dermed må de også ta hovedansvaret for at jeg bruker aaaaaltfor mye tid og penger på denne altoppslukende hobbyen....
