Valentine - PaperArtsy Topic #2 Masks

The video from Stampin'Up "two minute technique" is a great way for a beginner and I use it often. Thanks to PaperArtsy for displaying different videos that I can learn from.

I stamped with gray ink, drawed the bird band where I should have my hearts to hang. After I had stamped on my masking tape, I cut out the motives and placed them. I distressed my tag and then used my stencil. The motives were colorized and the hearts got 3D pads and were put on.


I have used: Studio 490 stamp set scs140
Distress ink fra Ranger, broken china, twisted citron, wilted violet, tumbled glass and lucky clover
Archival ink watering can and carnation red
Tim Holtz thinlits shape strips and stencil mini set 21
12# tag watercolor and black paper and masking tape from tesa
Glitter pen, silk ribbon and water brush 


Jeg wish you a crafty and nice day.
Hugs, Susan

Everything Art - Wanderlust 2017 course week #3

In course week #3 the theme is "Wilna's Art - three ways". The tutorial is by Wilna Furstenberg. Her flowers are very delicate and reminds me of porcelain we have here in Denmark. I have created several examples of these flowers and it was difficult, I was too cautious and made very small flowers which was almost impossible to color, so I went up in size, I ended up with this journal page. As you know, practice makes perfect.






Have a crafty and a nice day.
Hugs, Susan

Everything Art - Wanderlust 2017 Course week #2


This weeks theme in the Wanderlust course is "Making Magic" and I was very inspired by Mary Wancerin and her canvas here in week #2 of the course. I used my art journal, and this is my result. I used the techniques shown by Mary Wancerin and ended up with lots of layers of colour and different layers of scraps.
I tried out with lots of bright colours to really challenge my self and my comfort zone which usually is more darker colours.








Have a crafty day.
Hugs, Susan.

I have used:
DecoArt media Crackle Paste, Crackle Glaze and Black Gesso

Pink and Orange on PaperArtsy - Topic #1 2017



My inspiration is from the beautiful intro of the two colors pink and orange, and it surprised me that the color pink is from the 17th Centrury, and it is a color that stimulate my senses. It's hard to capture the colors of my tag, and I wanted to make it simple, so here's my post.

It is very beautiful examples that are made by the different artists, and it makes me happy in my soul.


I have used: PaperArtsy stamp eea05+eea04+eea01
Artemio stampset
Distress ink picked raspberry+ripe persimmon+fired brick


Thanks for visiting my blog and have a creative weekend and a lovely day.

Tell me a story on *ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY*


Although we are well into the month of January I will say
Happy New Year to you all.

Erika N started this years art journal with a nice theme. I have drawn my dining table as it stood at the moment I started drawing, what you see in the background is a bookcase with paper blocks and other things for my mixed media. I chose to use a simple palette of three colors which I mixed for the shadows.

Otherwise, I would say I am longing for spring and cheerful colors. 
Have a lovely day and a creative weekend.
Hugs, Susan
