Terracotta Diffusere

Hei og velkommen

Jeg kommer bare innom for å vise dere noe - som jeg synes, er helt supert. Terracotta leire diffusere. Hjemmelagde sådan.

Jeg har laget disse i terracotta leire og etter at de har tørket "dynket" dem med eteriske oljer, med forskjellige formål. Dette lille huset for eksempel har en duft som skal hjelpe til å rense luften. Den er også god til å støtte immunforsvaret.
Denne kan for eksempel henge i bilen eller på soverommet, på badet, i garderoben, ja hvor som helst hvor man trenger å rense luften.

Fjæren - som vist under, er dynket med en eterisk olje som skal hjelpe mot stress. Denne kan du ha på deg, eller du kan for eksempel ha den hengene på kontoret, på arbeidsplassen, i bilen, ja hvor som helst. Duften vil hjelpe deg til å stresse ned.

Dette var bare noen eksempler på hva jeg har laget. Jeg har laget mange flere diffusere med forskjellige bruksområder. Noen for å våkne, noen for å konsentrere seg, noen for å hjelpe til å slappe av, noen for å gi deg energi etc. etc.

Motivene er stempel fra Rubber Dance. Du kan finne disse stemplene pluss mange flere i Rubber Dance sin online butikk. Rubber Dance er norsk og holder til i Fredrikstad. Så dersom du kjøper stempler her bidrar du til å beholde en liten norsk bedrift.

Tusen takk for at du stakk innom. Håper du kan legge igjen en liten hilsen sånn at jeg vet at du har vært her.

Stooooor klem


PS. Det er SOL i Bergen i dag!! Ja du leste riktig -SOL. Det er helt fantastisk. Kan ikke huske sist jeg så solen her 😊

Send a Postcard to a friend - Reminder of a new challenge platform

Hello and welcome,
if you are a member of the new Group on Facebook called Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge, you will see this postcard on the wall today. If you are not a member, make sure to be a member. There is a lot of inspiration and there is also Challenges. 

I actually made a video tut. of this card, but just before I finished editing, the entire movie disappeared……. So here we are without tutorial on how I made this Postcard. What a pitty!

I can try to tell what I did:
I started with white gesso, then Distress Oxide in the background, layer on layers in many colors. Then I stamped the hearts onto tissue paper, and cut them out. The same did I with the postcard stamp. T

hen I used my palet knife to get some white paint over a little here and there. I used Matt Gel Medium to glue the heart and poststamp down on my card. I also used a dotted stencil and black and white paint in the background, along with tiny heart stamp. When it was all dry I write with Dina Wakley's gold paint over the postcard.

Link to the stamps:
- Mail Art
- I heart Art
- Tiny hearts from Friends Fur-Ever (in the background)

Here is the information about the Facebook Challenge:

I hope to see you in the Lounge.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Anita

My (almost) finished art-garden house

Hello and welcome
Today I want to show you my Garden art-house/Atelier/Craft House. This is a project that has taken over a year, and still the house is not completely finished. There are som details both inside and on the outside which is not finished yet.

Below there is a few (?) pictures to see what my house looks like, both inside and outside:

This house is aprox 42 square meter. My son, his half brother and my brother, have built the house for me from the foundation stone to the way it stands now. My husband has sparkled and painted inside, as well as set up the Kitchen. Thank you so much all of you for make my dream come true ❤

A little Kitchen for making coffe and tea etc.
My very soft and gooodie Daybed

The work table has my husband made

Some of the View. I can see the sea from my doors and windows when sitting at the table

We have many fruit trees in the garden. Can you tell? :-) Plums and Apples.

Some of my stuff

I have some old and some new things and furnitures in my house. I love mixing old and new.

More of my stuff

Here you can see some of my art journals

The table is 3,40 meters long and 1 meters wide

Even more of my stuff

I am very proud of my new house. And I'm sure I will have many nice moments here throughout the fall and winter. Painting, stamping, spraying, make books, and Jewelry, etc. etc., or just sit in my Daybed reading a book or an art Magazine. In this house there is room for everything.

In June, I invited some former colleagues over, and we had a great time. 

Here is some pictures from the outside. As you can see, the house is not completely finished yet outside, but I hope it will be completed now during the fall

I will also have a small wooden terrace on the front of the house

Thank you so much for visiting, Have a great week.
