Here is another layout that I made” just because”. The photo shows DD picking strawberries in our garden. I wanted to use red on the layout to make the red strawberries on the photo more visible. I also wanted to pick up the pink in her bikini. 
I colored the background with yellow and pink watercolors and gesso. The black and white stripes are washi tape and the text is written with a Dymo (my fave at the moment).
Here’s a close up:

Wearing ice cream as a lipstick

July’s challenge is up at Punky Scraps today! This month we have a mood board and a sketch to inspire you. Those who know me knows that these are not my colors… But all the yellow made me think of the sun – and here is what I ended up with:

The title of the layout is “Wearing ice cream as a lipstick”.
I also want to tell you about the summer challenge that is up at Allt Om Scrap. We have a gorgeous sketch for you. Pop over here to have a look yourself! :)
Thanks for looking!!! I hope you feel inspired and choose to join in at these challenges!

Action all the time

If you like to be challenged you should play along at Kraft It Up this month! The challenge is to “create a layout using a different style than you normally create, for example if you are a textured/layered scrapper try clean and simple...”. Could it be more challenging than that?
As I normally create with texture and layers I took Mel’s “advice” and made a clean and simple layout…
I used white mist and some light pink acrylic paint on the background. On top of that there are some washi tape, doodling and three hearts – and that is it! That leaves a lot of “white space” too, which is not common around here…
Here is a close up:

Midsummer dance

Today I want to show a summer layout that I did “just because” and not for any challenge. In Sweden we are celebrating Midsummer’s Day in June. Part of the celebration is dancing around a maypole to specific songs when doing special moves. Our daghter and her friend were so cute when they were dancing. They did all the moves correctly – and were very concentrated. :)
A lot of flowers on the papers, gesso, stamps, doodling and washi tape…
The flair button is part of a prize pack from That’s just so cute. Thanks girls! It’s written in Norwegian which gives the page an “exotic” touch. :) (All Swedes understands Norwegian – at least on this level. But it’s still a different language.)

A new bicycle!

ARTastic’s July challenge is to be inspired by a charcoal and pastel painting by Lorraine Lewitzka. The criteria is to create using black, white and predominately one more color. I loved the color combination in the painting so I stuck to that.

My newly arrived package from Sodalicious was perfect for this. (Actually I love their stuff and I want to use it all the time.) The chevron pattern to the right is made with Dylusions Ink on a template. The blurriness is made by spraying white Dylusions Ink on top of the pink one to make them blend.
