Fun with fabric…

Hello! My project for today is a layout made with a background covered entirely in fabric. I used a thin, white, cotton fabric that I attached to a sheet of cardstock using my sewing machine. I added wrinkles as I was stitching. I then painted the fabric with gesso. I […] Read more »

Paint your background…

Hi! It’s Anna here and I’m going to share a layout with you today, where I’ve used a few of my favourite techniques. The title says “ledsen?”, which means “sad?” in Swedish. I love to create little “nests” out of threads. I used white leftover threads from when I’ve been […] Read more »

Christmas hearts…

Hi! It’s Anna here with some wintery Christmas inspiration for you! I walked into a store last week, hoping to find something to alter. I was thinking there might be a cute basket or jar that I could bring home and mist. Instead I found a set of heart shaped cookie […] Read more »

Three in a row…

I’ve had this idea for creating a fun gift for a while. I wanted to make my own “three-in-a-row game” using small stones, painted and covered with Glimmer Glam. I started out with these stones.

Saying thanks…

I have two projects to share with you today, one art journaling page and one layout. I used complementary colours for the layout I posted in the beginning of this month – a green background with details in the complementary colour red. This time I went for a green background […] Read more »

Complementary colours

Complementary colours are two colours that are found in opposite positions on the colour wheel, such as for example blue-orange, purple-yellow or the colours that I used for my layout: red and green. Complementary colours may be tricky to use in large doses, but they do produce a high contrast and are great if […] Read more »

Playing with the paste…

I have two projects to share with you today, both using texture paste with the same screen from Tattered Angels.   When I created this layout I used the same screen twice, flipping it over to mimic the look of a pair of wings. When the texture paste was dry I […] Read more »

They could not RESIST each other…

Hi everyone, it’s Anna here with a couple of art journal pages and a layout, all using resist techniques. For my layout, I choose the easiest way of them all to create a beautiful resist effect – using a precoated resist paper.   The photo is from my little brother’s […] Read more »
