I am participating in the moley_X_3 project. Here are the sketch work for Barbara's book. To follow the books journey you can go here http://moleskinex3.blogspot.com

I had a lot of trouble finding the right motive, Jennifer's cat is such a strong statement. I think I have tried out 8 or 9 different things before I found something that I though would work. This is my final sketch. I'll go make the actually entry now.

Postcard form Amy G

Postcard form Amy G
I got this wonderful card from Amy G. She writes that her inspiration comes from the book "Water for Elephants". I have not read the book, but as I love to read, I'll sure check my library for it. That dark red in the card, I cant stop looking at it, so delightful, one of my favourite colours. The border has a velvet feel to it, and there are multiple layers of paper collage.

Tour Thursday: Likevel's give away


My sister is having a give away at her blog.

--

Giving away matt paper with Norwegian text. Including the letters Æ Ø Å.

I am making a containers of old books. You know the kind with a secret room. I have cut out the inside pages, and I do not need them. But it is fiction on good matte paper, and will certainly be great for scrapbooking. The pages are from the book "Song of running horses" by Britt Karin Larsen, in addition, I have "Lord" of Niels Fredrik Dahl. So if you want some come on over. I'll split the paper up in batches, so more than one will get some. All you need do is give me a comment and remember to fill in the e-mail address so I can get a hold of you. I do send internationally! A bit is about 40g and is about 30 pages. The deadline is 1 May.

W.I.P. Wednesday, 2011 postcard swap, iHanna - mishap

2011 postcard swap, iHanna - mishap

Well, I was suppose to finish of the postcards for the IHanna postcard swap, however there was a problem. When I was going to remove the masking liquid it did not want to come of, and the parts that did come of left a sticky surface. I have never encounderd this kind of behaver of the masking fluid. I was like it was morken/rotten. This means that all the cards was destroyed. I have to start over. Not fun at all. I happens some times that things does not work, but it is usually my own fault. I spill or drips something on the art work but nothing like this. Have you experienced something like this?

Art journal - farewell

Art journal - farewell
The word farewell is my favourite word to say when paring with a friend. You send your friend of with a blessing! The word works for me in both English and Norwegian. The Norwegian way to write and pronounce is close to the English: farvel. Pronounced

I woke up really early 03.40 and was not able to fall a sleep again, at least not until I have made this entry.

Medium used: pencil, permanent marker and watercolour.
