Exactly like daddy

This layout is made with my August kit from my kit switch with Zima. At the first glimpse of the kit I thought it was quite dark and “shabby chic like”. But then I saw the red border and I saw that the kit was brilliant. The combination of the drab colors and the vibrant red is awesome, I think. The dark pink frame is made using the back side of one of the papers.

On the background I used gesso on a template, Pan Pastels and some acrylic paint. The small red dots/flowers are made of the leftovers from the borders and some doodling.

When writing this post I am on a conference in a Swedish castle. Both the castle, the view over the sea and the weather are marvelous and I just had to show a picture of “my new home”.

Finally a reminder to those of you who haven’t joined the challenge I’m hosting at ARTastic this month. There’s still some time left to get your fingers dirty with different mediums and have some fun!!! Take a look at it here.

Thanks for looking! I really enjoy reading all your lovely comments! Thanks!!


  1. Love this page! So full of beautiful vintage butterflies! Wow, what a location for a conference..I'm envious;)

  2. Vakkert :)
    This LO is mega gorgeous. Love all the butterflies which decorate such a beautiful photo. The background paper is super cool made using all the different types of mediums and the frame is just fab too

  3. Super layout, gorgeous frame you have made around your Photo Helene.
    Wow wouldn't it be nice to live there?! :)

  4. Maravilhoso.
    Eu gosto de toda esta mistura e
    você tem razão quando diz sobre o vermelho,combinou muito bem.
    A foto do castelo é linda mesmo.

  5. Stunning work - love the design and your doodling! Wow!

  6. Va kul att se och höra att du fick till det med kitet, till slut :) Layouten är jättefin! Snyggt med fotomattan som avviker från de andra färgerna och doodlingen på den. Fjärilarna och blommorna ramar in bilden fint och passar bra ihop med gräsklippandet och träden på bilden. Coolt att du gjort mönster på bakgrundspappret.

    Var hittar du dina masker och stenciler? Jag hittar nästan aldrig några som jag vill ha. Men du har alltid fina och användbara, tycker jag. :)

    Tyvärr hann jag inte vara med i din utmaning på ARTastic men jag har en layout som jag påbörjat och hoppas kunna slutföra idag.


Thanks for leaving a comment! It really makes my day!!!
