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.

Tegning Inspirert av en Deep Purple låt

Hei og velkommen, det er meg igjen.

Jeg ble så grådig inspirert av den nydelige låten av Deep Purple, Soldier of Fortune at jeg var nødt til å tegne en vindmølle. Hvorfor ikke, liksom, hvorfor ikke vindmølle? 😊

Jeg synes vindmøller er vakre. Både de litt gammeldagse whimsy og de moderne høye tynne. Vindmøllen min måtte jo ha masse farge. Jeg elsker jo farger. Så etter å ha tegnet den først med blyant, deretter en sort penn, tok jeg frem Dina Wakley's Scribble Sticks og en pensel og ga farge til vindmøllen min. Dernest ble det litt doodling med Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens i de samme koordinerende farger.

Ved siden av vindmøllen har jeg skrevet litt av teksten til Soldier of Fortune;
I have often told you stories about the way
I lived the life of a drifter
Waiting for the day
When I'd take your hand and sing you songs
Then maybe you would say
"Come lay with me and love me"
And I would surely stay
But I feel I'm growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill going round
Guess I'll always be a soldier of fortune

Hmmm…..tegne flere vindmøller? Tja, hvorfor ikke?

Tusen takk for at du besøkte bloggen min i dag. Håper at du kommer innom ved en senere anledning også.

Ønsker deg en vakker dag.

Klem, Anita

Lett som en fjær - ny utfordring hos Rubber Dance

Hei og velkommen,
i dag er det en ny utfordring hos Rubber Dance. Jeg har laget dette kortet for din inspirasjon.

Dette kortet har jeg laget ved å stemple fjærene side ved side med sort Archival ink. De fargerike fjærene har jeg farget ved bruk av gele platen, og så har jeg stemplet dem med prikker og stjerner etterpå og limt dem på med limpistol. Teksten har jeg først stemplet på hvit kartong, og så har jeg klippet en ut og limt oppå kortet med 3D puter.

Jeg håper du vil være med på utfordringen denne måneden. Du kan vinne heder og ære på Rubber Dance sin blogg, samt at du kan vinne 12 Euro kupong (tilsvarer ca. 120 kroner) som du kan bruke i Rubber Dance sin nettbutikk. Les mer her.

Utfordringer går ut på å enten bruker fargene hvit og svart og en valgfri farge og/eller bruker vinger/fjær.

Materialer brukt:

- Hvit kartong
- Sort Archival ink
- Gelli plate
- Hvite fjær

Stempler fra Rubber Dance:
- Fjær
- Congratulations!
- Små prikker og stjerner

Når du handler i nettbutikken husk å bruke koden ASFreeShip, da får du gratis frakt dersom du kjøper for 15 Euro eller mer.

Tusen takk for at du besøkte bloggen min i dag. Legg gjerne igjen en hilsen, det setter jeg veldig stor pris på. Ønsker deg en fortryllende dag.

Klem, Anita
