A NEW HANGER IN MY NEUTRAL TONES !

Dear Wen, I hope this is not too colorful, to take part in your 

beautiful party of  # 22 Simply neutrals.



as I thought it just needed a little green ,too :-)

I used old burlap ,as I love, having that special tone, muslin and a piece of old 
sheet. 
Walking my daily tour along the beach I found the beautiful driftwood
piece assembling a wing so lovely, the feather and the two rusty capsules,
and decided to create a collage using them all.


You know how I love to use birds and nature,in my creations, so I did not 
think long, before I started this .


A little papers ,fabrics, embroidery, and finds,
many would walk by !!


Love this description of Bird !!


We was visited by a lot of swans some weeks ago,
and I love watching this beautiful bird !!


Evening sky, when crossing the bridge between Sweden  
and Denmark... if you see close you can see all the windmills
placed ,to create current.


Thank you for this week of wonderful Neutrals, over at Wendy`s !
I know you will find so many amazing blogging friend `s ,works,
to enjoy and admire, over there !!

Thank you for visiting and commenting, it always makes me very happy !!

Hugs and love Dorthe

FOREVER BEAUTY fresh or dried !!!


Already almost half into April , oh how time fly ....

I hope this card can make it into  dear Wen`s  Simply Neutrals # 21 
even it has a soft color tone .


It is an almost all paper card, but knowing me, you already guessed
there sneaked a piece of fabric into this creation, too.


There are many layers ,from papers, : old brown bag,
wallpapers  and card stock. 



The butterfly `s are die cuts, painted after, and so are the flower.


The old wallpaper was already embossed, and gives a wonderful effect 
when inking over it !!


My last photo are dried hydrangeas from last year, some of them kept the beautiful
shade of former color ,- and am as beautiful, as when fresh blooming.
Now they are only trying to set the leaves free,
but soon there will also, be new flowers. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you again dear Wendy, for hosting this beautiful event,
I hope of you seeing the post, will also find joy in posting
something to take part, in the party !
You can read all about it on Wendy`s blog ,
see the link above !!!

Hugs and love from Dorthe

THE SUN GIVE US AND NATURE HOPE FOR THE SPRING TO ARRIVE !!

                                                       SIMPLY NEUTRALS #20





Dear Wen shares her no 20 Simply Neutrals,
Thank you sweetie, you are so kind, to also show my medaillons ,I 
created for dear Liz. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This week I show a card again,...seems I`m fond of
creating cards, this year, lol. And as always nature ,pops up as
my favorite choice. I loved the stamp with Queen Anne`s Lace ,and 
had to have it, and also the geese stamp, from That`s Crafty. 


My dear friend Lynne  https://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/ , 
had newly  send me a wonderful gift
of Walnut crystals , to make ink, and I tried it first time
on this background, and love the soft brown tones it creates.


The Queen Anne Lace, was first stamped with white ink, and then
highlighted with a Sharpie. The little signs, with favorite words, are made from
cork and I also placed two wood cuts , and stenciled using a Dinky stencil, and paste.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


We were happy to have our daughter and grand kids, for some days in Easter, 
and we spend some hours in Snogebæk, to walk the beach, and see this, very unusual
view of the rocks on which the island rests. 
Normally this is totally decked by the sea, and no one of us had 
seen this before 
Isen`t it spectacular ?



How was your Easter, dear friends? 
I hope you spend some lovely hours, and that the sun was shining a bit onto you.

Sending you all,
hugs and love

MY JANE AUSTEN DOLL !!

I have a very dear friend, whom lately celebrated her birthday, and knowing
she is very fond of all things Jane Austen, I desided to create ,for her,
a Jane -doll-


I found a face from the period,- in my collection of purchased digital sheets,- which
is often used to illustrate the figures in Jane Austen`s stories.
It was transferred to fabric, and then made to a 3-d head.
Her body was drawn freehand, sewn and dressed in ,something
likely to have been worn, back in late 1700- first 1800.



You can`t se it but she is wearing lovely under wear,
and the bonnet was a must from that time. I had to have a
little bling ,too :-) 


I gave her a little collection, of Jane-quotes in her hand , from the same
digital sheet, as her face.


I love to read them, and smile !!!


DEAREST FRIENDS, WITH THIS, OLD LOVELY, TEACUP,
FILLED WITH A REAL BIRDS NEST AND SOME EGGS,
I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY EASTER.

We miss the sun here, but hopefully it will soon be back,
to brighten the days of spring.

Thank you for visiting and for commenting, it means
so very much to me.

Hugs and love, Dorthe

NEUTRALS FROM MY HAND AND HOME

Dear Wendy sweetly offers us to join her 
SIMPLY NEUTRALS  #19
Thank you Wen , I love being in your lovely  party.

This week I created a card again, this time using the method of
crumpling up the paper, before adding inks, to give a fantastic
texture, which you can see if clicking the photos. 


The beautiful swirl, is paperclay, made from That`s Crafty,


My heart I bought for Christmas, a wooden gift tag,
it is painted several times, and I used both crackle medium, and 
crackle glace I love how it came out.
The white heart is also paper clay in a new mould I found here in DK.


This tile also made from paper clay, and with the  crackle glace on top. 



A flower made from different diecut flowers,and a tiny
one bought.


And as Easter is near, I want to show a few other creations.
This is made several years ago,  First burning the box in my stove,
and then decorating, and finishing with wax.


Beautiful eggs, from my dear Julia from http://vintagewithlaces.blogspot.dk/
They have been gifted me many years ago, but are still among my favorite Easter decorations,
Thank you , Julia.


Thank you for now,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL VISITS AND COMMENTS
they always makes me smile, and feel happy.

Have a lovely week dear friends.

Hugs and love
Dorthe
