Sometimes you need to try something different!

These last couple of weeks my husband and I have been working in the garden and making an new patio outside. I have been helping with most of it.. and it has been a great workout.now its done,, and we have started a new project, making a new entrance stair.

Due to that crazy building project we been up to, my creative mojo has been a bit malnourished, but yesterday I tested something new (well at least new to me).. and it was really fun. And there are some examples of what

I have been up to.  The final project will not be shown today, but I will share in a near future 🙂

Varför vara som alla andra när man kan vara speciell?!

Ibland behöver man sticka ut…. som när det gäller hjärnan- dvs min kalender på jobbet.

Årets lärarkalender var väl inte helt bedrövlig i färgen… Men Lila??!!! ja bättre än brun iofs.. men som sagt… inte så kul.

Att vi dessutom är ett helt kollegium som har exakt likadana kalendrar gör inte saken lättare… det är vid mer än ett tillfälle jag varit på väg att ta någon annans kalender… så vad göra?
Ja man är väl inte helt bortkommen med färger… så fram med textilfärgerna ( då ytan är tyg)  och gå loss med både färger och masker.

Så inför nästa läsår behöver jag väl inte fundera på vilken kalender som är min iallafall 🙂

walking in a winter wonderland…..

vinterThis is my favorite time of the winter, it´s almost Christmas, the snow have been falling for several days and we are now living in a winter wonderland.

yesterday me and my family enjoyed the beautiful weather, and I actually took a picture of the beautiful landscape we are living in…  Whats it like in your part of the world? sunny, warm, cold, lots of snow?

well let´s talk something besides weather for a while…

its almost Christmas… in less than two weeks the school is having a break for Christmas, and I´m the one always doing everything last minute… there is some ornaments and lights up.. but the rest of the decorations . they are still in their boxes. the only thing I actually have been doing is Christmas cards and tags… and earlier this week I had this tag up over at the Hobbyworld blog.

I´ve used a cute emboss folder from Spellbinders, and my favorite gelatos and glitter emboss powder to get the cute effects. I’ve also tied some of the cute new Platinum Shimmer Twine from the Twinery around the tag.

I hope that you will have a wonderful weekend with time to create 🙂

A Canvas!

I actually had some time just playing around with colour the other night, in between DT projects. I used lots of Inks, Mists, and WOW Embossing powders,, and I had a blast!!!!

 This is what the canvas looked like after the inks and mists and embossing treatments..

and this is what the final product lookes like 🙂 Ive added some Epiphany Crafts Vintage settings and Round 14 acrylics.  Ive also used AC chipboard, And some new Prima Resistables and wood buttons.

The Twine is the beautiful Pink Sorbet from The Twinery and the fabric is cheesecloth.
