A FEW THINGS TO SHOW YOU !

Hello dear friends, 
I wonder how you are all ? 

Already first week of September has gone, and I wanted
to show you this heart created for a dear Danish friend ,
for her birthday . 


A little story told , of the love between the
two beautiful people , here taken from a 
paper napkin , and adhered to the fabric.


The rest is old embroideries, all hold together with slow stitching 
and buttons .


I was so lucky to find this old English piece for
almost nothing , I love it.


One of the last  hollyhock flowers this year ,



And a most adorable and beautiful tiny book 
I was gifted for my birthday , from a dear friend , in USA .


I hope you are all doing good, and wish you a lovely weekend.

Hugs and love

Hello dear friends

Thought I better post something before August is all gone ,
and have just finished this piece using  one of Tim Holz pressed leaf,
-the bird is from an old book , and it is all mounted on an
envelope I once was gifted from Anni , my dear Danish friend .


Also used eco-dyed papers , and gifts from dear Lynne ,
stamps and fabric. 


It is so hot here the last days, more than my head and body
likes to deal with , - but also lovely with a sunny end of August.

I hope you are all enjoying the last weeks of summer , or what period you are
in,  winter ,autumn , fall , all beautiful in each their way .

Hugs and love

Hello from a warm Friday


This card uses a page of my Eco-dyed leaf - added to a brown 
craft paper,  together with different papers,-


stamps , laces, and an image which I crumpled first to give it
wear and tear . 


I kind of like how it turned out .

Some of my roses are blooming again, for the second time, which is 
a beautiful gift , especially in this dry summer we have here where I live.


Today is another beautiful day, with blue sky and sun- not a cloud up there,
and around 27 Degrees C , so not too hot , but still very much enough for me  :-)

Sending you all wishes of a lovely weekend,

hugs and love

SO LONG AGO


I didn`t realize it was so long ago I posted last!!
I guess summer, FB and Instagram came in between , and sometimes
I wonder if to stop using my blog.... 

But here is a card made for a dear friends birthday .

I love the new leaf stampsets created by Lynne https://lynnesbowsandbelles.wordpress.com/
and used one of them here- together with an old bird image ,an embossed leaf , laces 
and old papers- all the things I love creating with !!



We had a warm day today , and my husband and I had a lovely walk around a lake, near by 


A lovely place to move your body :-)


I hope your Sunday is or was a good one, and send you
love and hugs

A CARD AND ECO-DYING RESULTS


Hello dear friends , I thought I wanted to show you some of my 
Eco-dye results , and first a card ,where I used two leaves dyed onto
paper . Put together with laces, old book page, scraps and embossed papers.


This beautiful leaf is dyes onto a piece of cotton ,
I used vinegar, and rusty pieces in the boiling water ,
and also the rust was sitting maybe a week in the pot ,
before using it to dye, so there were a lot of rust dust !!


They comes up as little spots onto some of the pieces.


These leaves are also on cotton fabric .....


And these and the one below..... as you can see they comes out 
very differently, -surely because of the different leaves I have used
are giving different colors and strength of print !!


The two last pieces are both onto paper, and from the same bath 
as the ones above , I love this whitish leaf where the veins came
out a little yellow . If you click the photos, you can see more details.


I hope you are not bored , this new area is really giving
much excitement  and joy , even it can be difficult to keep
patient , and wait overnight , before opening the bunch up .


Here we celebrate Christ`s Ascension today, so
the world outside is quiet , --and I thought I better make 
a new blog posts. 

A lovely day to all of you ,-
Hugs and love

Collaged card , I think !!


Yes still not totally finished, so maybe it will be framed and
used as a card , along the way :-) 


I used the lovely image from  Nicie Ibarra : https://www.etsy.com/dk-en/shop/IbarraCreations4U
The stenciled detail is from a wonderful stencil from https://www.thatscrafty.co.uk/
and the rest lovely old and new fabrics and papers from my stash .


The paper was Eco-dyed , and stamped a tiny bit and the
butterfly is an old punch from Martha Steward .


Here we have a Holiday tomorrow , so the working people
mostly have a day off, making it a long weekend .

I hope you are all well, and feeling good, dear friends. 

Sending you 
hugs and love
