Art Journal spread with metalic paints and lots of stamps and texture

Hello and welcome
I hope you had a wonderful and peaceful holdiday.

Yesterday I got a happy mail from Rubber Dance and I just had to test them out so here it is, my art journal spread using stamps from Rubber Dance:



This was so much fun that I think I will make another one, but with different paint and other stamps. Some close ups of details:






Stamps from Rubber Dance:
- Memoirs from the set Retro Beach
- Souvenir from the set Travel
- Love from the set Arty Hearty
- Timeless
- Butterflies from Antique Botanicals
- Script in the background from the set Travel
- Diamonds/Harlequin in the background
- Big Ben in the background from the set Travel


I have also another project going on and that is making a Junk Journal - and that is also much fun, but it takes a little longer so I do it in between other things :-) I will show you when I'm finish with the journal.

If you have any question about my art journal page, or others, please let me know, I will be happy to answer.



Have a wonderful and creative day! Thank you for visiting.

Hugs, Anita

From me to all of you a very merry Christmas - Kinda different Christmas cards

Hello and welcome my dear friends.

I know its a very long time since my last post, but I've have been a busy bee.
I've made lots of Christmas card .And since I had so much fun to be creative, I would not want to take up my computer.

But then today I realized that it was very long since I've written anything, so I had to take up my computer to write a blogpost and show you what I've been up to this past month.

And here they are:








And here are a few more cards that are not quite finished yet present on my table:


On these Cards I've used corrugated cardboard, ordinary cardboard, white gesso, black gesso,  fabric and ribbons, washi tape, some embellishment, some bling, some stamps, Lindy's sprays, and Inka gold.

These Christmas cards I intend to send to family and friends. If you want to recive a Christmas card from me, please give me your name and address and you'll get a surprise in the mail :-)




If I'm not back before Christmas I will now wish you all a merry and peaceful Christmas. Take care of yourself and your beloved ones.

Hugs, Anita

Et enkelt, men vakkert julekort til inspirasjon

Hei på dere kjære venner.

I dag har jeg i oppdrag for Hjerteboden å inspirere deg til å lage noen fine julekort, som du for eksempel kan gi eller sende til venner og bekjente nå før jul. Jeg vet at jeg hadde blir skikkelig glad dersom jeg hadde fått en nydelig hjemmelaget julekort fra noen. Da vet man at man blir tenkt på innimellom alt det hverdagslige kaos.

Vel vel nok om det :) Jeg har altså laget et julekort og det var verken vanskelig eller tidkrevende å lage dette.


Produkter jeg har brukt:
- Hvit kartong
- Maja Design - Summertime
- Distress Ink i rød og grønn
- God jul stempel
- Kobber Embossing pulver (brukt på God Jul)
- Rødt metallisk garn
- Rubber Dance Watercolour Xmas stempel (julekulene)
- Glossy Accents (utenpå julekulene)
- Grønn penn for "sting" rundt den hvite kartongen
- Limputer

Her er noen detaljer av kortet:



Jeg håper dette var til litt inspirasjon for deg til å lage dine egne julekort. Ikke så mye som skal til alltid.
Jeg liker veldig godt det ordtaket som sier: "Den største gleden man kan ha, er å gjøre andre glad".



Tusen takk for at du stakk innom. Jeg håper å se deg snart igjen og ikke minst håper jeg at du legger igjen en liten hilsen, det hadde jeg satt umåtelig stor pris på!

Klem, Anita

We are fabulous - and it's my birthday! :-)

Hello and welcome dear friends!

Today it's my birthday. HURRA! Hurra for deg som fyller ditt år, ja deg vil vi gratulere... ♪♪♪♪ I love a lot of attention on my birthday. So, give it to me :-)
Birthdays are undervalued and I wonder what people who do not want to celebrate his/her birthday thinking of....It's fantastic to be allowed to be alive and to experience another year, and getting older and (perhaps) wiser. The alternative, I think, is death sad....

Well that's me and my opinions :-)

I have a blog post over at Rubber Dance today, a little halloween inspired Tag. Hop over and take a look. Rubber Dance have these days  released some new and absolutly awesome stamps.
Here is a sneek peak:



Remember to join in on the october Challenge over at Rubber Dance as well, there is marvelous prizes to win!

Now it's time to eat cake and sing a Happy Birthday song! :-) Bye for now. Take care!

Hugs, Anita

Hello and welcome

Yesterday I recived a HAPPY Mail from Rubber Dance. Another georgeous textured stamps designed by Susanne Rose, called Textured Houses. I loooooove them! I had to start playing with them right away and here is the result:

Home is where my DEER is


Is'nt those tiny wacky houses adorable? And there is many more adorable houses in this set I recived so there will be more to come. Stay tuned :-)

You can buy them at Rubber Dance online store, as well as many many more awesome stamps. The Deer and the word Deer is also a stamp from Rubber Dance.

Just as you know it, Rubber Dance is a Norwegian stamp Company and the owner is a wonderful lovely lady, called Bibi. The Rubber Dance workshop is only a hour or so driving from the King of Norway. Is'nt that cool?!

kreativitet er inteligensen som har det morro - ny utfordring hos Hjerteboden


Hei og velkommen, da er jeg tilbake igjen med inspirasjon til deg med ønske om at du vil delta i Hjerteboden sin utfordring denne måneden som er Maskulin.


Dette prosjektet er litt spesielt da jeg har brukt egne bilder som bakgrunn. Det er det største bildet helt i bakgrunnen, samt bildet av vinduet. Disse bildene tok jeg når jeg var ute på tur en dag nå på sensommeren, skrev dem ut og rev dem i passende størrelse og limte dem ned på et Mixed Media kartong som jeg har brukt Distress Ink rundt kanten og rammet det hele inn med Distress Crayons - Black soot.

Jeg synes det er veldig gøy å kunne bruke egne bilder som en del av kunsten. Da kan man være helt bombesikker på at det finnes ingen andre som er lik :-)


Her er noen tett på detaljer:



Teksten er et sitat av Albert Einstein



Håper jeg ga deg litt inspirasjon til å være med på utfordringen hos Hjerteboden.

Materialer brukt:
Distress Ink i fargen Gathered Twigs
Vintage Romance - Ephemera Cards
Wycinanka - Polaroidramme Mix 2
Mini Gears

Alt i listen over er å finne i Hjerteboden sin nettbutikk.

Ønsker deg en super og kreativ dag!

Klem, Anita
