Love it! :)

My other passion, except for scrapbooking:

Working out!

This is filmed at a boot camp I'm attending - Herofitness boot camp. Love the outdoor training! :)

I can. I will.

There is a lot of inspiration out there on the internet - different blogs, instagram and facebook to name a few. So if you ever get a scrap block - get yourself out there! :)

This is an Art Journal page where I was inspired by a blog post over at the Faber-Castell blog - created by Mieko. Faber-Castell makes a lot of yummy color/media products, like the Pitt Artist Big Brush Pen, different fun medium and Gelatos.

On this page I worked with Gelatos. Gelatos is kind of like a creamy crayon, with the consistency as a lip stick. It is colorful, and dissolves easily with water. That is also where it gets permanent.

I colored some wood hexagons, from Studio Calico, with gelatos. Then I painted with a water brush on top to make the color permanent.

When everything was dry, I spread some UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and Fragments (Shaved Ice) over the hexagons and heated it with an embossing heat gun. Use a pair of tweezers to hold on to the hexagon with, cause this will get HOT! ... and other tip: Heat it from below... otherwise you will have glitter and UTEE all over the place (pretty sure of that! ;)

Doesn't it turn out pretty cool? :) Kind of like small pieces of candy!

I found this quote on Facebook a while ago. And it is sooo true - For me it means that if I put my heart and soul into whatever I'm going - I will make it! :)

Have a great day! :)

Love this! :)

Isn't it amazing how much we belive in what we see, instead of trying for our self?

This new video by Swedish singer Molly Sandén is so amazing.

She has been bullied in the US by her record company that she needs to loose weight to make it as a singer. She started to believe them, but then she wrote this song...

This weekend has been a special weekend in Sweden...

...we have been celebrating midsummer...

... and this is kind of how we do it. :)

söndag 15 juni 2014


You might have noticed that there isn't much activity on the blog at the moment...

... the reason is that I put a lot of my spare time on training right now, working out at the gym. And it is sooo much fun!!! :)

Say Hi! to my Personal Trainer - Mikael Sjölin. He's the best! :)

And this is the guy how made the motivation video - a link.

I just got the biggest compliment! :)

My friend Meri did a CASE (Copy And Steal Everything) of one of my layouts. :D And I think it's sooo cute!

This is my layout, created from a sketch by Sodalicious.


Meri was the teacher of my first scrapbook workshops, and she is adorable... and now she was inspired by little me. Thanks! :)

This is a photo of the two of us, when we are heading home after a day at the big Scrap and Pearl Event at Annexet this Marsh.

Happy! :)

Tough Viking

This is what I did two weeks ago...

... ran an obstacle race over 7 km through mud, ice cold water, over several big containers.... and through 10000 volt.

It was an incredible adrenalin rush and sooo much fun! :)

Hard Easter

It has been a lovely warm summer day in Sweden today. And I really enjoyed it! :)

This is a layout with a photo from Easter celebration.  I had seen this type of egg painting on the internet, and I wanted to give it a try myself. I really like how it turned out. :) The eggs got different personality. :)

This layout is created inspired by Sodalicious sketch #5. I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right because I think that it suited my photo better.

I started the background, on a Sodalicious pattern paper, by smearing gesso on a part of it. Before the gesso was completely dry I added texture in it with a lid. When it was dry - I dripped alcohol inks over the part with the gesso, and I also did some splashes with a gold mist from Heidi Swapp and a black one from Dylusions.

For some reason the title got really long... but I solved that by having one part of the title in Thickers and the other handwritten.

A close up of the background, where you can see the texture that I created in the wet gesso with a hair spray lid. I like that it is subtle , but yet it's there. :)

And I do love the splashes! :)

Added some paper circles, as seen in the sketch, to enhance the focal point to be on the photo. Did some scribbling around them as well. :)

This is the first version of this layout with the same photo, based on another Sodalicious sketch. But I wasn't pleased with it, so I tore away the photo and papers and started over on the same background paper.

Now I'm pleased. :)

Stop it!

The theme for the 51st Sodaliciuos Art Journal Challenge is...

... "Cut it out".

And when I found the perfect image of my interpretation of that theme, I couldn't wait to play along. :)

 For me the theme represent that sometimes you need to stand up for yourself. To just say "Stop it!" when you've had enough of something or someone. That is your right to do that, don't forget it! 

I'm working in an Art Journal album from Sodalicious, with different papers inside, and I love the grafic wood pattern. To create the background I dripped some orange paint on both pages, and then I used my brayer to spread it out unevenly. Then I picked up a Sodalicious stencil and used green acrylic paint on top of that. I like the combination of orange and green. :)

When that had dried, I added some bits and pieces of washi tape, and then I added the cut out girl with modpodge and did some doodling around her.

A close up of all the yummy layers of pattern, paint, tape and letters. Love it! :)

Scrap Crop

I was on a scrap crop yesterday...

...with these lovely ladies. 

Malin, Stella, Meri and Lotta - love, happiness and creativity! :) 

At first we just started chattering like c**zy. :D ... but after a while, silence settled (for a short time ;) and the creativity kicked in. 

A couple of years ago, or maybe five... we met at Stella's shop once a month, but now we don't see each other that often. 

So when we do it is so much fun!!! :) Can't wait till the next time. Hugs!

We got a new little person into my family, my cousin gave birth to a adorable baby boy a month ago.

Baby crochet

I'm visiting a couple of friends in the south of Sweden this weekend.

Within a month they will be having a baby. :) I'm sooo happy for them. :) 

They got this cute crochet mobile for the baby carriage from the aunt to be. 

The elephants are soo adorable! :) ... and I love the colors.

Love is tough

Is love tough? ... I would say it is. It is hard to find, and when you find it you have to work with it to keep it alive. But it is worth it!

I have created an Art Journal page with that thought in my mind. Cute hearts, with dark and rough edges, revealing or covering a mess inside...

.... I know, kind of deep... ;)

This Art Journal is created for Scrap-Perra and on this particular project we had a special theme in the Design Team. We all got the same three papers to create with, from American Craft - Dear Lizzy - Daydreamer. It is so much fun to see how different all the projects turned out, even though we started with the same base. :)

Photo borrowed from Scrap-Perra.

This is one of the Project Life pages that Maria/Miis in the Design Team created... can you see what inspired me to do my Art Journal?

I really loved the card in the top middle, so I had to make my own version of it. :) ... I really like the one on the lower right as well... Cute! :)

I had this really messy mop up page that I didn't know what to do with...

... this was the perfect way to use it, since only small parts of it showed through the hearts.

There is some really yummy texture and lots of layers in the mop up page - Liquitex Texture Gel Blended Fibers, Dylusions ink, Deco Art Acrylic Paint and different masks/stencils from The Crafters Workshop and Prima. :)

I wanted the letters to really stand out. They had a soft pattern in white at first, but I painted them with a Faber Castell Big Brush Pen in hot pink to make them pop.

As a small decoration I added some wood veneer hearts from Studio Calico...

... and did some doodling around everything. :)

Have a great day! :)

Don't you just love it? When your in your car, driving to work on a monday morning... it's a grey day, and then out of the blue - your favorite song is playing on the radio!

You just have to sing-a-long! Out loud! :)

I know I love it! :)

A No Title Card

Sometimes you need a "no title card". A card that you can use for almost every occasion.  This is a card in that category. 

I used this to write a gift certificate inside, where my niece got a day with me doing our nails at a beauty parlor. She loved the idea, but she still need to use it... we need to book a date. :)

Photo borrowed from SweScrap.

I was inspired by this cute sketch made by LillBlomman for the inspirational blog SweScrap,when I made this card. I really liked the three sections in the sketch, that I interpreted with three pieces of pattern paper. I turned the sketch to the right, to make a more rectangular card.

The card is based on two pieces of cardstock, where I did drips and splashes with Dylusions ink on them.

To frame it, I chalked the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink Pad and Mixed Media Inx in the color School House. I also did some doodling. :) It feels like I am not done with an art project before I do some doodling on it. It's kind of my feature. ;)

The stars on the sketch turned into hexagon wood veneer on my card.... and they, of course, got some doodling as well. I drew some stitches around the edge of the pattern paper blocks, and I also drew with a white pen around them to make them pop out from the page. Trying to make an optical illusion...

I used a border punch from Fiskars to create this border, that looks like a torn out page from a note book. I like it! :)

On this one I also tried to give it a feeling of standing out from the page, with the doodling, by using a black and a white pen to create shadows.

Have a great day in the sun! :)

Sweet Nellie

Today I wanted to show you a scrap lift I did over on the SWEScrap blog.

It is a layout about my brothers cute dog - Nellie, who is no longer with us.

Photo borrowed from Mison.

This is the amazing layout done by Mison, that I was inspired by. I just love how she works with different mediums and getting messy. It is so inspiring. :)

I started the background by misting over a mask from the Crafter Workshop - Tile Texture, with two different mists in green and pink.

After that I added a lot of stripes of wasi tape, some stamping and mist dripping - to make it more messy. :)

With all the messiness going on, I wanted the title to stand out.. so I used white thickers for the title.

For the butterflies I used Liquitex medium - Blended Fibers over a mask. You can color that medium, but if you keep it clear it creates a cool soft effect that I really like. 

Look at all the yummy layers! Love! :)

Have a great day!

First kiss

This is a movie about the first kiss between two people that has just met.

Isn't it great to see the difference of how they act around each other before and after the kiss? :)

I miss kissing someone for the first time...

5 more kilos

Do you remember this Art Journal page from a couple of months ago?

Well.... I have reached another part time goal - I have lost five more kilos. Happy! :)

I like making these motivations pages.... and it is with motivation that I get through my challenges.

On the background I used a technique that Dyan Reavely shows in this video. She is soo funny and good at what she do... I would love to attend one of her classes. :)

The technique basically is about using the Dylusions inks without misting with them. You screw of the "misting lid" and draw with the riser on your page, picking up more color as you go.

She shows two versions of the technique in the video. One where she first mists water on the page, do the drawing, and then mist more water. That gives it a brighter feeling.

I used the second version, where I first mist with the White Linnen mist, then draw, and then mist with the white mist again. This gives it a more pastel look, softer. I like it! :)

I then wanted to add some white to my page, so I added some Liquitex Modleing Paste over a TCW mask. When that was dry I splattered yellow acrylic ink over the page and let it run. 

I use the same "number five" on all of these motivational pages... from my gyms own magazine,  giving it kind of a connection to all my working out time.

The name of the gym is SATS, so the title is a little play with that name... giving the Swedish word for "Go for it". 

A yummy bonus photo! :)
