Midsummer girl

Here’s a new layout to share! No challenge this time. This is actually an idea I have had for a while and I thought it suited this picture from ‘Midsummer Day’ that is a Swedish festival that originates from our pre Christian time. I love this picture of DD posing like a 3-year old! :)
Everything on this page is doodled. I first draw all the flowers on the cardstock and then draw some extra flowers that I cut out to make some texture to the page. All the flowers are colored with ProMarkers. I also stamped the date in a repeated pattern over the page.
Close ups:

This was SO fun to make! Thanks for popping by and for leaving comments!


  1. This is sooo super cool and it must have taken loads of time to draw and colour, and then the cutting and glueing. This LO is so fabulously made, love the cute picture and the stamping.

    De feirer ikke midtsommer her i England som vi gjør i Norge og Sverige. Det er bare druidene som gjør det og de får bruke Stonehenge til å feire dagen lol
    Ha en fortsatt fin uke, klem :)

  2. I love the bright and lovely photo of your daughter surrounded by your handcrafted flowers.A wonderful memory page!

  3. I absolutely love your doodling skills! Brilliant job with those flowers! Love how this turned out!!

  4. Wow fantastic Helene. The flowers look fabulous, nice vibrant colours!

  5. O seu doodle é !
    EMOCIONANTE esta foto :):)

  6. Wow-you made all those flowers! Gorgeous!

  7. Men ååååh vilken underbar layout Helene!!! Din doodling är jättefin! Färgerna på blommorna blev jättefina på den vita bakgrunden och det passar så bra ihop med blomkransen som DD har på sig! Du är otroligt duktig på att rita!

    Kram Maria

  8. Wow! Love your flowers - so clever that you drew them all and you also coloured them so well!!!
