PAGES FROM A NATURE JUNK BOOK-

It seems rather a long time since I was here,, but wanted to
show you what I have been trying to distract myself with through the 
last many weeks, of covid-19 worry .


The book is made with old coffee dyed papers, and envelopes , and here
are the first 5 spreads . I used old pieces of papers, and fabrics, from my 
paper and fabric junk-boks - handmade flowers and tags. 
If you click the photo, you will have a bigger image . 


And papers from https://papergarden.fi/gb/ a lovely Finnish shop .like
the Lily -of -the -Valley above and others. The birds are all from
an old nature journal.


The stamps are from FB : June Mac ------and the tree stamp below ,and some words



There are little clusters like the one below flower rosettes
and old book pages, already yellowed by time . 


I so hope you are all safe and well ,-- here we try the best and
only goes out for a walk every day, and not meeting many persons .

Take care dear friends, all over the world, we are in this all together
and we will stay positive , hopefully, with a daily creative time . 

Hugs and love

My junk journal , shown with all pages !!

Many of you might have seen this  junk journal ,on IG and FB , but I hope you 
will have yet another look , here, too.


The journal is created using all kind of paper scraps, and fabrics-


packing pieces, send to me from friends in the big world, used tea-bags ,


little rags from my stash


handmade tags, and a real embroidered leaf , added to an envelope 


Here another tea-bag lady , and a rolled rose,


This was a card I was not satisfied with, so tore it to pieces,
and used them separately .


Piece of tea bag paper , and everything sprayed with infusions .


The last photo is a paper napkin adhered to fabric. ( left side )

I like to link this to  Mini Album Makers Challenge 

Also hoping you are all well , out there, -and sending you
hugs and love!

HELLO JANUARY


Hello friends,  how are you, and your January?


No much winter here, but all the same bleak tones outside in nature , 
so I was inspired to this collage .


I love this stampset  from PaperArtsy, and
found a skeleton leaf to use with it .
The bird is highlighted with the wonderful 
That`s Crafty Acrylic Liqued Wax .


I hope you all have a good start on the new year , -- and  I send
my best wishes to the Australian people suffering so much , for
them soon to have ongoing rain in the affected areas .

Hugs and love
Dorthe

Just wishing you a Happy December


Not here so much anymore I know,, but today a greeting from me 
with this card .

I used different snowflake stamps, and the big die cut  one is from
Søstrene Grene, here in DK  .
Also one of Tim Holz acrylic tiles on top of madonna and child ,- 
white flowers and berries , glittering fabric, not to see so much  here, I`m sorry ,





The die cut wreath is a Sizzix  die and star I don`t remember
from where it came . The words are from a stencil , and made with 
texture paste . I used Infusions to spray the card .
-----------
I hope you enjoy the festive months, - we all have so much to do,
and stress is always around the corner , but hopefully it stays there!!

Hugs and love
Dorthe

NEW PAGES IN MY KHADI CONCERTINA BOOK !


Hello friends , already reached the middle of November 
and Christmas is fast approaching .

All the same I had joy, playing for myself today , creating two pages in
the wonderful khadi paper concertina book, my dear friend Lynne , gifted
me earlier this year ,


Difficult to see the golden touches here , but they are there,
the leaf is a diecut , and the stamped ones,from a fairly new Tim Holz
stamp set. I love the bird sitting on the branch,which is a Paper Artsy
stamp set  from where the text comes, too.


Here a bit of the second page , using embossing text folder ,tulle 
and eco dyed paper . The beautiful WISH piece, was put on a paper bag
with lovelies inside, also from my dear Lynne.
And here below you see two pieces of tree bark, I have saved from a
tour in the wood , it has a lovely soft blue tone . 


I wish you a lovely rest of the week, and have fun with  Christmas
preparations , whenever you start them . I have most cards finished :-)

Sending you 
hugs and love
Dorthe

HAPPY AUTUMN FROM DENMARK


Autumn yes , but also started to create my Christmas cards 
this one in blue and brown colors , a mix I love.


And here a beautiful spot, we visited last week 
and in all autumns glory !!


Last a little collection of pumpkins ,
two real ones, inside my home, and two in
concrete making it cozy outside .


Almost October gone , and only two months till Christmas ,
time is flying so fast , here we have days with lovely weather,
but also rainy grey ones , I guess it is like it has to be . 

Wishing you all a lovely weekend
Hugs and love
