Not a real princess

When I showed this layout to my husband he almost sounded a bit offended and said that she IS a real princess. I had the feeling that he didn’t like the layout… On the layout I tell the story that DD is not a girl who likes to dress like a princess or to hear fairytales about princesses. I’m not that kind of a girl either, but when I found this dress that some ladies made for a Red Cross store I persuade her to buy it. She only wore it once and then she didn't want to. That’s the story behind the title on the page. To match the story I went for kind of a punky look on the layout!
The layout is made for a challenge at Scraplagret where you are supposed to use a lot of stamps and to use something you have cut out.
I used 3 kinds of stamps (5 stamps altogether). This close up shows one stamp colored with ProMarkers that I got from Zima in a kit swatch (gorgeous isn't it?), and two Tim Holtz stamps. The fairy stamp and the flowers are all cut out as required.
The last picture shows two fairy stamps from Prima and one of the Tim Holtz stamps.

I have tried a new technique on the background, blending different colors. What do you think of it?
I wish you a wonderful week full of creative moments! Don't forget to join in at the mixed media challenge that I'm hosting at ARTastic this month! You have until August 31 to finish it up!


  1. Så yndig!
    This is such a great LO. It's a fab background you have made with different paints, and I just love the little cut out fairy. I have the same kind of princess at home. No pink or flowers in her wardrobe either lol 
    Ønsker deg en fortsatt fin uke x

  2. Läcker LO! Tack för att Du är med och tävlar!

  3. Wow - your work is so amazing! Love this so much. That stamp is awesome and you coloured it so well. It's perfect, as is your layout!

  4. I love your background! I want so much to be able to do the same - but it's so hard! he he. I think your style is so cool (I've already told you that!) and I love everything on this layout. The little fairies are too cute! ... and I love her dress!! Eventhough she's not into the princess-thing. I have a niece who isn't that much of a princess either. That's okay. :)
    Take care.

  5. Está impressionante este também !!
    Eu gosto de toda a arte que você criou no fundo e
    com certeza a foto é muito bonita.

  6. Vilken härlig layout! Så lekfull! :) Som vanligt matchar du färger och mönster så otroligt fint i din layout! Och vilken kul idé att använda stämpelmotiv på det här sättet (både det färglagda och de som ser mer doodlade ut). Blandningen av färgerna blev läckert! Mer sånt! :)


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