HERE WE GO WITH MY FOURTH PAGE IN : THE DOCUMENTED LIFE JOURNAL


Yes, I am still following this wonderful tour of creating a new 
page ,every week.  It is kind of fun ,getting a task to work with
from week to week !
This week is  " Words with friends " 



I wanted to use my new beautiful stamp from Catherine Moore  and her 
shop http://www.characterconstructions.com/, as my first thought of
words with friends, were : Good friends are angels on earth ! and nothing
could then fit better in ,than this wonderful Earth Angel,
which I painted with chalk paints and a little silver .


I gessoed the paper and then added texture with schrunched 
eggshells, texture past through stencils, laces ,and dried 
hydrangea flowers .


Then I painted with chalk paint and used the wonderful 
Distressed Paint from Tim Holz to give the silvery shimmer .
The text stamp I used is from a German stamp compagny,
Sorry I don`t remember the name now !!


I love the tones of blue and brown , mixed with a little
off white , and silver accents.



Thank you so much for visiting me here, it makes my day, reading your comments and 
seing your names , ----some of you I can`t revisit ,as I do not find a link to
your blog. 

I hope your January has been a good month , and wishes you all a 
wonderful start of February ,which will already soon be here !

Hugs and love, Dorthe

HAPPY CREATING , FOR MYSELF AND FRIENDS !!

Having been gifted with  my dear Liz`s  amazing necklace, I wanted to try
my hand on a few fabric pearls, too ,-So I went back to read the
wonderful tutorial written by Sandy Babb.. you can find it here
on the link , some posts away !!


This is what I came up with, two pairs of earrings,
I still have to practise , but they were fun creating.


This ,for me unusual little book and card, I made for a friend, not
the fondest of laces and sepia , so I hope she likes it !!-not there yet !


I had fun with the tiny paper book, and the recycling of
papers ,old and new !!



Tomorrow I`m off to be with my daughter and  Mathilde,
Real girl time, no men ,lol,lol- My husbond stays at home.

I will be away till Monday, so till then you will not hear much from me,
Take care of yourself, and have some wonderful days ,all.
See you soon.

Hugs and love from Dorthe

THE DOCUMENTED LIFE PROJECT


This year my dear friend  Anni  tempted me to take part in a project called 

In short ,-you choose a book or journal to fill with creations and thoughts,
after having been inspired by lots of small FREE videos ,to be seen
after being a member of the group ! It runns for the whole year, 
I`m sure many of you already knows this !!


This is my front page , made from wastes of all kind os papers,
which I added and then coloured ,and stenciled - I also used a little Bister.


I have some for me importent words added, and you can see I
also used some embossed pieces!


This is the first page -my January page ,again with remnants of this 
and that, and a calender for little things to remember.


I has been fun ,starting this ,and I hope to continue ,getting inspired from the four
very clever artists having made this forum, again this year.


I still have a few beautiful and special gifts to show you,next time,
but for now I wanted to show, my paper-works !
***************
Today we had a wonderful sunny day, and my husbond and I enjoied a
beautiful walk !
I hope your sunday is beautiful too, and wishes you a great and creative
nnew week !

Hugs and love
Dorthe
