IN A PINK MOOD, -COLLAGE


It`s no secret that I love pink ,and even more when it is in soft
tones like here. This collage is made with a beautiful old
rosa book cover, on which I mounted a very lovely
old page from a photo album-I love the golden edge 
around the photo.


It is not the real photo but a copy from my printer,
laied behind the frame, and decked wit a piece of
wonderful old tulle.


I stamped the text with a french text on the frame,
and added a mixture of  a Tim Holz die flower,
and petals from a storeboughts one. The paper petals  are
first altered and bend to look real. Also stamped the
qoute on paper before adding.


On the top I crunschet a piece of  tissue paper, and if you
blow up the first photo you will see ,that I also used a piece of  wipe
(wet towel) ,to the bottom and the right side, which give a special effect!


I hope you are  in the mood to enjoy your weekend, and 
wish you all ,my dear friends, some very happy dayes .

SMILES,HUGS AND LOVE TO YOU-

JOY ON A GREY DAY !


Look what came to my door, on a very grey and cold day!
A packet from  my dear friend  LIZ http://lululizinlalaland.blogspot.dk/

So wonderfully filled with beautiful things!


Apart from being a wonderful friend, Liz is also a wonderful artist!
Look at this lovely card ,she made me. 
The flowers are so beautiful with the old birds drawings around.


OH , and my heart shipped a beat when opening this ...
The most sweet and beautiful 1950 copy ,of the old real
wax communion crowns- isen`t it wonderful!!!


A closer look of  the lovely whiteness with a touch of rosa.
I never thought I should see one in my own hands,-dearest Liz 
you gifted me with  something I thought I could only  dream of !
I love it , thankyou from my heart,sweetie.


Also I love those old German porzelain dolls ,and am so
happy to recieve them, as they are not easy, if
at all  possibly to find in Denmark.


On top of these fantastic gifts, my sweet generous
friend, also send me a wonderful old French school book.
My other photoes were not good, -but inside
it is filled with pages of  old dayes  slanting handwriting examples,
for the students to watch and then try to rewrite,in a notebook.
And I love it, -it is so gorgeous for collages,
only I will not destroy it, but only make scans :-)


Theese wonderful things were also inside,-braid,buttons ,wall paper,
and see the mending wool card, that Liz explained me were made
 to cut from, whenever a costumer askes for a piece of wool to mend
 something with.Here we did not have such , only little ones finished to buy! 


Thank you my lovely dear friend, I am so touched over,
all this amaxing gifts from you, they are so very special to me,
and you made my grey day so happy and joyfilled.

***
We still have snow and cold in Denmark, and the sun is waiting
to show it`s face where I live, I hope it will soon be a little
more springlike.
***
Dear friends, thankyou so much for all your wonderful comments,
on my last post, I send you warm 
HUGS and LOVE.
And wishes you all a wonderful new week.

xoxo-Dorthe

seing her beautiful example of "Notes dàmour"


I made the heart with a free image from a link Nancy added to the tutorial
called CHICKS ,- also used pieces of  lovely fabric,lace,and transparent
node paper. The image is printed on cardstock ,and gave me this 
distressed copy, that I loved.


To the envelope I added old lace too, and a sweet feather.
then stamped ,-with love!


I want to welcome all my new followers, I`m so happy to see you here.

Also hugs and thank you to all my dear friends whom leaves so
sweet and wonderful comments.

MY FIRST PRAYER FLAG!

For long I have wanted to make a prayer flag, but had untill now not taken step
to do anything about it !

Then today, when visiting NANCY`s   14 Hearts no. 8 day-she made 
the most beautiful and romantic heart prayer flags, and that got me going.


So here it is ,-made from an old piece of  table cloth,on which I 
pieced the "flag" ,- on top of that a heart made from a paper napkin.


Under the heart I embossed this line of hearts, on handmade paper,
and as you see below, I was again true to my loved dried leaves.
that i love to use .
The cutest girl is a Paper Whimsy  image, and I needed a tiny piece of driftwood,too.
I stamped the : with love- and gave the leave and heart a coat of  Golden,
so it is resistant to touches and dust.


If you haven`t visited Nancy`s blog yet, go have a look ,at all her wonderfull all free tutorials,
there will be a new one every day ,untill 14/2.

Thankyou again for all your loving help,  with my problem,that luckily is solved
you are such lovely friends.


I wish you all a most wonderful weekend 
and welcome new followers , you are so appreciated,all.
Hugs and love,
Dorthe

THANKYOU FROM MY HEART FOR ALL YOUR DEAR WELL WISHES


Dearest friends- I`m so thankfull for all your kind and sweet ,well wishes send to me
those last 2 weeks ,where I have been under the weather with a nasty flu/ cold-that still
haven`t left me ,-only been a bit better,- as my fever has gone, and the coughing is not
as persistent those last dayes.

THANK YOU FROM MY HEART


This morning when visiting  NANCY`s
14 HEARTS  (free tutorials )
she made some sweetest little hearts  (go to check it out)-and for the first
time in those weeks, I was inspired to make my own little creation.

As I`m still not in my shop / workroom, I had to deal with the little materials I have inside here,
so the heart is not at all like nancy`s . But you inspired me dear friend, thank`s for that!
I used a Paper Whimsy image, and a piece also from a P.W. sheet called :The Riddle.
The butterfly is punshed with Martha Stewarts punch-and the little hearts stamped on 
a tea bag paper.

You have all made me smile and feel good ,reading your greetings,
and I feel blessed with so many dear friends.

Love and hugs,Dorthe
