I colored the mouse with hearts with Prismacolor pencils, cut it out and placed it on 3D adhesive pads on top of the four squares in the sketch.
I've used pp from Blue Fern Studio and four wooden hearts from Studio calico in the corners. The hearts where painted with metallic paint.

Stick it Down double page inspiration

It's time for more inspiration from the double page team at Stick it Down this month.

I made this layout:


And here is the sketch:


I have had fun using different media on this double page. I have used stamps, stensils, paints and mists for the background.
I used a dark color on my title and highlighted it with a white pen.


For embellishing I used some dies, a cactus and an filmstrip,


and a chipboard from Creative Embellishment, colored with gesso and some Prima Art sugar.

I told the story about the Cactus garden.


More of the background and embellishing.


The mists I've used on this layout are from Lindy's Stamp Gang and with the stensil have I used paints from Art Anthology.

Feeling Sketchy sketch #166

It's a new month and time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy.

I have used some leftover patterned papers for this card.


Here is the sketch:

I used three large flowers, really dimensional on this card, together with some die-cuts, punched butterflies and halfpearls.


For my sentiment I have used a stamp with a poem about Happiness (Glede in norwegian).

Round Robin - Go Green

Round Robin for March at Swirlydoos has the theme Go Green.

I had two gorgeous layouts to follow and lift.

Here is my layout:

The photo is of an old, damaged stove. We found it by an old ruined house out in the wood one day we were out for a walk. I love the colors and patina on it.

I made a large bow with a green burlap ribbon:



I think this feather, which we got in the January kit from Swirlydoos (from which kit also the papers and the button are) were great for this photo.


The theme Go Green should be shown by the color green, recycle something and using an outdoor photo. I found two old packaging that I recycled. One of them I cut in two and the one part I fussycut and used with my flowercluster:


 I used som gesso with a stencil and dripped some mist around.

Feeling Sketchy sketch #165

It's time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy.

Here is my take on it:



Here is the sketch, #165:

Jen Leeflang sitt bilde.

 Cathy Van de Bruinhorst sitt bilde.

I have used Lenten Rose or Christmas Rose, the pre-coloured set.

I printed out two of the same colour and cut out the flower from one of them, put it on the other with 3D adhesive pads in three different hights for more effect.
I also used some stickles to highligt some points.




I also put one of the three pieces of paper on the left hand of the card on 3D adhesive pads, to let the sentiment stand out too.

Ice skating worship

Last winter we wanted to have a worship outdoors. The local sportsteam has an Ice Skate Festival on the local lake. We asked if we could have a worship in their tent. They said yes, and the first Sunday after the Festival we had the worship.
Since I got these photos from one of the one who attended I have wanted to do something with them. 


When I saw this sketch at Let's Scrap, I thought it would work perfect for these photos.


The papers and most of the embellishments are from the Desember 2016 kit from Swirlydoos.


I used some snowpaint on the metallic snowflakes and put some bells on them.


 I used the same paint with a stensil to make snowflakes around.

Stick it Down - double page inspiration

It's time for more inspiration on the double page sketch for March at Stick it Down.

I have used photos from our trip last year to Joshua Tree National Park. We took a walk in Hidden Valley and here are my layout with photos from that walk:



And here is the sketch:

I choose to print most of my photos in the size that the sketch indicated. Then I pulled them together as on the sketch, on cardstock, cut out around and Cut the standing photo in the middle in two.
For my background I used about 1 1/2 piiece of 12 x 12 paper, cut them in strips, distressed the edges and adhered.

Here are some close-ups:


Together with the flowers I used some green leaves from the same packaged and I cut out some leaves in barlup for some extra interes .


 I put on some halfpearls around the flowers.


I put my journaling on a piece of cardstock.


I put some chipboard in two of the corners. The chipboards are colored with gesso and some color from Shimmerz.
