Layout .:. Bubbles .:. Simple Stories .:. Simple Vintage Garden District

I made a page using the fun Bubbles Technique as shown by Vicki Boutin – Love your art Vicki! I like using good quality acrylic paint to get good distinct visible bubbles so I used paint from Dina Wakley and Dylusions.

I decorated with the Simple Vintage Garden District Collection by Simple Stories – another one of my favorites.

The photo is from last summer at Almedalen which unfortunately will not be on this year. We had a great time with lots of interesting speeches and loads of networking and also getting together with some good friends.

Jag har gjort en layout med Vicki Boutins bubbelteknik – ÄLSKAR Vickis alla underbara idéer! Jag vill helst använda färg med hög kvalitet för att få distinkta och väl synliga bubblor så jag använde färg från Dina Wakley och Dylusions,

Jag har dekorerat med min favvokollektion Simple Vintage Garden District Collection från Simple Stories.

Fotot är från förra sommaren i Almedalen. Det var suprspännande med massor av intressanta föreläsningar, massor av nätverkande och jag lyckades också träffa fina vänner!

This is what the background looked like:

Card .:. using Frank Garcia Capri collection .:. by Prima Marketing

Sometimes I like to take a step out of my comfort zone and today I did it double. Firstly I do not make that many cards, I do not feel like that is my first strength and secondly I do not often create scabby Chic/pretty flower pieces. However, the Capri collection by Frank Garcia for Prima is so beautiful so how could I not give it a try?!.

I have tried to make the beautiful sentiment be the focal point of the card and framing it with lots of pretty things. I like how it turned out for sure.

Right  now we cannot travel to beautiful places around the world due to the Corona virus,, but we still can in our minds.

Ibland gillar jag att ta ett steg utanför min komforten och det har jag gjort dubbelt idag. Att göra kort är inte min starkaste sida och inte heller att skapa Shabby Chic/vackra blomsteralster. Men, med den vackra Capri-kollektionen från Frank Garcia för Prima Marketing var jag ju tvungen att prova.

Jag ville att det vackra citatet skulle vara i fokus för ögat och har ramat in det med de vackraste detaljerna jag kunde hitta. Känns det inte som om jag lyckade ganska bra ?!

Just nu kan vi inte resa till vackra platser runt om i världen på grund av Corona-viruset, men vi kan fortfarande drömma oss bort.

Saving the day

Hi!
Another workweek has gone by and another layout from me. This time a funny photo of my darling granddaughter Saga. Having an afternoon snack after pree-school and falling a sleep in the middle of it all. Qutiepie!

Hej!
Ännu en arbetsvecka har förflutit och ännu en layout från mig. Denna gången med ett roligt fotografi på mitt älskade barnbarn Saga. Trött efter en dag på förskolan fick hon lite mellis och somnade mitt i allt. Sötnöt!

I know that it is hard to see, butI painted the butterflies with the Nuvo Aqua Pen and I just love the effect that it gives. Who doesn´t love a little bling?

Jag vet att det är svårt att se , men jag har målat fjärilarna med Nuvo Aqua Pen och jag älskar verkligen effekten som det ger. Vem gillar inte lite bling?

Oh, those Prima flowers……. They are just stuning. And what about the Thickers from Shimelle? They ad som sparkle for sure.

Åh, blommorna från Prima Marketing……… De är helt underbara. Vad säger ni om dessa Thickers från Shimelle? De bidrar verkligen med lite gnistrande.

I hope that you will get to have a great weekend!

Jag hoppas att ni kommer att få en härlig helg!

Layered tags using .:. Simple Vintage Garden District by Simple Stories

Do you like layering and mixed media? I do! On these tags I have been working with lots and lots of different layers. Sometimes when I do that I hesitate to cover up a previous layer because I want it all to show but this time I challenged myself. The two tags differ a bit but this is more or less the receipe:

The first layer on the tag is just some color brush strokes. Then I added a few stripes of pattern paper from the Simple Vintage Garden District by Simple Stories using matte gel. Then I added gesso. Next step was stamping. On top of the stamping I used some acrylic paint and a stencil to pick up some of the color. On top of that color through another stencil. Then heavy weight gesso through a third stencil. Then I used a fourth stencil with some distress ink on one tag and distress oxide ink on the other. I added some more gesso with a palette knife. After that I filled a Fine tip Glue Applicator with black gesso mixed with water. I used this to draw/paint the black stripes on the tag. I let the tag dry between all layers. I added some Simple Vintage Garden District decorations and then as a finish I used some organza ribbon and a decorative brad on the top of the tag. So in the end I used 12 different layers and it was so fun!

Gillar du lager på lager och mixed media? Det gör jag! På de här två taggarna har jag arbetet med massor av olika lager. Ibland tycker jag att det är svårt att arbeta med lager på lager eftersom jag tycker att det är synd att dölja de enskilda lagerna. Men den här gången bestämde jag mig för att utmana mig själv att använda massa av olika lager! De två tagsen är lite olika men detta är mer eller mindre receptet:

Först penslade jag på lite färg på vit cardstock. Sen har jag applicerat mönstrat papper från Simple Vintage Garden District by Simple Stories med matt gel. Sen penslade jag på tunt med gesso. Nästa lager består av stämpling. På det har jag använt akrylfärg där jag torkat bort en del av färgen genom en stencil. Med nästa stencil la jag på mer akrylfärg. Jag använde heavy weight gesso genom en tredje stencil. På den fjärde stencilen använde jag distress ink. Sen mer gesso som jag la på med en  palettkniv. Efter det fyllde jag en Fine tip Glue Applicator med svart gesso blandat med vatten och ritade linjer. Jag lät taggen torka emellan de olika lagren. Jag dekorerade med dekorationer från Simple Vintage Garden District-kollektionen. Till slut använde jag organza band och brads på toppen av taggen. Det blev 12 lager till slut och det var så kul!
