A little bit ARTastic and a little bit Punky Scraps…

I’m a featured CT member at ARTastic this month! That means that I’m not only writing some words about myself and showing some of my favorite layouts – I’m also hosting the challenge and giving a price to my favorite interpretation this month!!! And what’s more? I have done a tutorial showing one way to work with mixed media that works as an inspiration together with the chosen painting! So it’s fun, fun, fun over at ARTasic this month!!!
Jane has actually said that she wants ARTastic to move more towards mixed media so if you are into that I hope you join in this month to show her that’s what you want! And if you haven’t tried it yet this will be the perfect moment! :)
The inspiration painting is “Om färgernas mörkerseende” by C. O. Hultén. I LOVE his paintings and I actually have some of them as he was a friend of my grandpa! You can read more about that here.
You find the tutorial here. I will also post it in my next blog post together with my own take of the challenge. :)
As you are here at my blog I thought I should give you more than the “formal” information I share at ARTastic… So here are some secrets about me:
1.       When I create with paint and other messy medias I sit on the floor. I have a piece of plastic covering the floor so that I can go crazy with whatever I want to do… And I don't have to clean it up!
2.       I eat a lot of chocolate – and I try not to stain the layouts.
3.       I’m practicing my doodling during meetings at work...
The last thing I want to share with you today is this LO that I made for Punky Scraps Blog Hop’s Sketch challenge.

If you follow my blog you know that I love Punky Scraps challenges! If you still haven’t checked them out I definitely think you should! Just read their description of the challenge site and try to resist this:
“This is your challenge blog aiming to encourage inky, painty, arty creations and make you scrap out of your comfort zone!”
I hope this gave you some inspiration!!! And I really hope you’ll play along at my challenge over at ARTastic!!!!!!!!!
(I will soon post a tutorial of the pinwheels too..!)


  1. Åååh vilken UNDERBAR layout! Älskar färgstänken!!! Den söta doodlade ramen runt bilden, de små molnen och vimplarna är oxå jättefina. Och va kul att läsa lite hemlisar om dig :)

    Din layout för ARTastic är väldigt läcker! Och din tutorial är väldigt pedagogisk, informativ och inspirerande.

    Kram Maria

  2. Synes du har gjort en flott jobb med å lage din tutorial, veldig bra "step by step" og slutt resultate ble jo bare helt fantastisk.
    LOen du har laget her er ultra kul, digger alle de farge/malings splæsjene som bare er sprutet rundt, og vind møllene er jo såååå søte :) gleder meg til tutorialen on hvordan man lager de kommer :)
    Wish you a great week, I'm a big fan of your pin wheels and I'm looking forward to the tutorial :)
