Tag it!

I have been at home with two sick kids.. and with kids big enough to enjoy themselves with TV, video games and board games, I have had enough time to actually sit down between the fights and create.

This time I had an Idea of creating a masterpiece LO,,,, but somehow the mojo didn´t appear.. so it ended up as tags instead.

They can come at handy when I need a quick and easy gift tag.

tag-0314-Katarina-Damm-Blomberg

 

 

The tag didn´t take loads of time.. but it gave me a bit inky fingers.

I used distress inks to color my tags, I used the darkest at the edges and the lighter at the center. Then I added my stamps with black VersaMark, and added some color touches with distress markers to the stamped image.

 

Materials used:
Manila Tags- various sizes and colors.

Distress ink- blue tag: Tumbled glass, peacock feather,  peeled paint, Pink tag: picked raspberry, tattered rose, Orange tag: Barn door, Squeezed lemonade, Spiced marmalade

Distress markers- mowed lawn, ripe persimon, squeezed lemonade, festive berries, picked raspberry, iced spruce

Stamps- Prima Marketing/Finnabair, Studio Calico, Unity Stamps/Donna Downey, Bo Bunny

 

Jag är så glad och stolt…

Ännu en “liten hemlighet” kan avslöjas idag.

My Sweet Girl!

Today I have had a nerve-wrecking day, and to let go of some of the stress I was a bit creative tonight. I love it when I have that possibility, to just sit down and have a sip of wine, a piece of chocolate and create… well today minus the wine and the chocolate… :(

The other day me and the kids visited a friend, and we had loads of fun… before we went home we took a stroll through the neighborhood. The kids played around, and when my Son found an old concrete pipe, he yelled… mom its PHOTO-TIME!!! (yup I have scrap-damaged kids) the photos of him and his darling sister turned out really well… and I scrapped them right away. This is one of the LO´s I did today. The base of this LO is really simple, I made the pattern using an pilot ink pen, and my Silhouette Cameo to draw this whimsical background, added some dots using a Prima Marketing stencil, and beautiful Tim Holtz Distress ink and distress marker -Pumice Stone.

The flowers are from Prima, and Wild Orchid Crafts. and other than that its a Manila Tag, and some patterned stripes of paper from Carta Bella.

There are a few fun creative things going on behind the scenes… and today I have been scrapping some great papers from Color Conspiracy and some oldies but goodies from Jillibean Soup.

There is rarely any photos of me and my husband together… wonder why? there are tons of pics of our children and about three of me and my husband on the same photo.. and one of those are our wedding portrait. I think I need to get some of my scrappy photographing skilled friends to help me out with a photo-session of the entire family this summer…

I confess,,,,, I am a retard when it comes to mechanical devises… and today I realized that my Silhouette Cameo actually has a sketch feature… well I knew it could sketch, but I hadn´t tried it.. thought it was difficult to get it going.. but it was really easy.. and the result really neat. I used a regular Pilot Ballpoint pen and the special penholder… and got going. and it worked like a charm.

Loved the look of it.

what do you think? cool huh?

There come times when you just need to create.. your entire body is itching to be creative.. and today have been one of those days.

This weekend I have been diagnosed with contact dermatitis, and that gives my hands itchy blisters… not fun at all… and that means that I have to use cotton gloves in everything I do. And with my hands covered in bandages… what happens?? The MOJO strikes big time… so its been a struggle using those gloves and handle glue and inks… but I got it done :)
