Mixed media canvas 30 x 30 cm / 12 x 12 inch - custom order

A custom ordered birthday gift for a friend....

She choose the colors black and silver.... I took the black as far as I could while it was still looking good and not too gloomy.  Added a few red roses and choose to let the red shine thru to give it some extra color and to enhance the black and the pearl silver.

I had a great time finding the items to put on the canvas from my old TV decoder, the beach, the hardware store, yard sale and my stash:-)

Used two stencils and modeling paste to create some texture along some laces and paper.

Stamped some scripts after the final coloring and I quite liked it.

Hope my friend will like it too:-)

I was inspired by msliberty25 on YouTube, Miranda is super talented and amazing. Thank you Miranda.

Beautiful album for sale..... SOLD!

My latest album just finished, and are up for sale.

Price: DKK 195,00 + shipping

I've used some beautiful French inspired papers. I'm just so in love with the front cover page... Does it get any cuter..? 

I also used Authentique, Peaceful collection "Freeze" for the back cover.

Inside the cover I used Scrapperdasherry, Oscar Wilde Temptation.

Inside the album I've used printables French inspired papers, - Bello Pastello and some cardstock.

On the spine I cut a Weathered Clock by Tim Holtz in half and adhered it on with the clock hands. Added some ribbon and a charm with a clock and a birds nest.

On the front cover I adhered a small "væltepeter" in Danish.... Have no clue on the English name for this bike.

The big rose is homemade. There is one white gardenia and a lot of small roses and leaves from various Danish online craft stores... I might just add some embellishment inside the album, however I promise it will be beautiful....

Hope you like it and send me a mail if you would like to purchase the album.

So good to be back.....

Have had the most amazing holiday - however, spent home..

My best friend thru 35+ years came for a visit from California. She wanted to visit places from her childhood and youth. 

While she rediscovered her roots and country history I was rediscovering it with her and enjoying every minute for a solid 15 days. It was amazing.

Old friends were found and invited to a reunion. Visiting Amalienborg, Kronborg, Fredensborg , Charlottenlund, Sorgenfri castles. The open air museum (Frilandsmuseet) to see how the Danes were living back in the 1600-1800... Tivoli and Bakken the two oldest amusement parks in the world.

Since Denmark has been blessed with a wonderful summer this year, the beaches was targeted as well. A tour Tisvildeleje, Rågeleje and Gilleleje where we bought fresh... I mean really fresh flounders that we enjoyed later that evening fried in butter and with new potatoes... Typical Danish and very delicious.

The beach trip also took us to Nivå beach a small and extremely kid friendly beach.... With very low water. Then the new and renovated Bellevue beach, a hip beach where you go if you want to be seen. But there are a lot of regular people who just plain want to enjoy a very nice beach:-).

Odense was on the list as well, her birthplace. H. C. Andersen's home was visited too, the souvenir shops as well. 

Strøget in Copenhagen - walking street with endless shopping possibilities was checked out. As was a habour and canal boat trip, seeing Copenhagen from the water. The little Mermaid was photographed. The Royal Theater, Nyhavn, Dragør.... 

It was action packed but loved every minute.....

If you wish to see some pictures go to Instagram and search on #denmark and you will enjoy Denmark thru the pics.

Beautiful tag for a gift - SOLD

with a coin envelope on the back for a small note, a gift card or just cash.

This tag or similar will cost around DKK 30,- + shipping.

Being productive....

I have been so productive today in my scraproom:-), have a flea market coming up and I need to have created enough things to sell.... And i also had some orders to finish up today. Besides that my best friend is coming from California for a visit.... So I have to clear my scraproom, so she has a place to crash:-), meaning no scrapping for two weeks... But that is ok... We'll have so much fun...:-)...

Tivoli gardens is definitely a must. Then Frederiksborg castle to see some of Carl Bloch's paintings... The originals... I'm so excited....and of course shopping, shopping and shopping...

So until then... Enjoy the summer and happy scrapping....
