In the Sunday issue of Allt om Scrap that went up yesterday the DT-girls were asked to scrap lift a layout by Marja. It’s a gorgeous and very inspiring layout and I chose to lift the dots, the black and white flower and the heart.
The picture of DD is taken at her kindergarten and it shows the children’s drawings when they were asked to draw and talk about different feelings. DD answered that joy was to play with grandpa as he is so playful. I thought that was so cute that I wanted to save that memory… The black arrows show that the photo with the text is an enlargement of the note on the other photo.

I used a lot of mist and paint on the background as I wanted the artistic feeling in the children’s paintings to spill over on the layout. The dots are made using modeling paste to make some texture. The wooden frame is broken into two parts.
I also want to share with you what’s going to happen at Allt om Scrap in December. We are going to have a “December Daily” with the possibility to scrap about one new word every day. As I don’t feel like translating all those words I continue in Swedish… (Hope you don’t mind).
Under hela december kommer vi att publicera ett ord om dagen som vi i redaktionen förknippar med månaden december. Alltså en December Daily.

Vi vet alla att denna månad är stressig och ändå är den fylld med så mycket glädje, värme och gemenskap. Något man lätt glömmer i all julstress. Det är därför vi vill att ni ska sätta er ned en stund och reflektera över de här orden och sedan skapa något (layout, minialbum, art journal eller något altrat). Vi vill också att ni fokuserar på journalingen - använd ordet med andra ord.

För att ni redan nu ska kunna påbörja ert skapande publicerar vi hela listan med ord redan. Vår December Daily börjar som sig bör den 1:a December. Från och med det datumet kan du länka till ditt alster i vår blogg med hjälp av en linkytool. Självklart finner du inspirerande alster från våra designers varje dag!
Bland de som deltar i December Daily kommer vi efter månadens slut att lotta ut ett pris. Ju fler ord/dagar du deltar, desto fler chanser att vinna.
Thanks for popping by! Don’t forget to join my giveaway that runs until the 30 November! I wish you a wonderful week!!

    Så flott med "Jule kalender" i Allt om scrap i Desember. Jeg har tittet innom den siste fra søndag, her er det mye bra. Bra at lista med ord har kommet ut så vi kan begynne å scrappe noe tidligere for å kunne få noen ferdig. Skal prøve meg på noen her :)

  4. Oh WOW Helene, this is absolutely FANTASTIC. Love it. Soooo many gorgeous details & such a cute photo too. Cheers Di xo

    I'll be repetitive, another beautiful result.
    Very well done the lift, but you kept your style ... LOVED!!
