Encinitas - at the Beach

We stayed for three nights at Encinitas when we visited California last year. One day we took a walk and found the Stonesteps down to the beach. We walked back by the beach, getting wet since it was high water.



This layout is based on the sketch 1-5-17 at Lets's Scrap.



Here is mye journaling about our walk:

May double page inspiration

It's time for more inspiration on the double page sketch for May at Stick it Down.

Here is my take on the sketch:


Here is the sketch, made by Laura Rumble:


I moved the photos to the right, so I didn't have to cut one in two parts, and used a mat only under one of my photos.

I liked the journaling spred around and used all the spots for my journaling.


I bought to charms when we visited the mission. And I used them both on this page, one with each of the embellishment clusters. Here you see the first one, showing Father Serra:


And here is the other, showing the front porch of the mission:


The numbers are wood numbers painted with a metallic paint from Viva.

And here are the last journaling.

Feeling Sketchy, sketch #168

It's time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy.

Here is my take on sketch #168:


And here is the sketch:

Jen Leeflang sitt bilde.

I found a piece of a paper from BoBunny with some cards on one side in my scraps. One of these where 6x6 inch and had a circle motive, so I decided to use it for this card.
I embellished with some Prima flowers, a couple of branches and some halfpearls. The sentiment says "Happy Birthday" in norwegian.

Monument Valley

Vi overnattet i Monument Valley når vi var i USA i november i fjor. Det var allerede mørkt når vi kom om kvelden, men flott måneskinn.
Vår hytte hadde fantastisk utsikt rett ut i området, og mot soloppgangen, så tidlig på morgenen fikk vi oppleve en flott soloppgang.

Her er en LO jeg har laget med et av de bildene vi tok.


Ark og  pynt er fra ulike kit fra Swirlydoos. Mønsterarket er fra Scrapberry. Har brukt en stensil på bakgrunnen.

Her et nærbilde av pynten. Valgte å bruke samme bladswirl i tre ulike farger sammen med en stor blomst.

Her er en LO til med bilder tatt rett utenfor hytta før vi reiste inn i parken.


Denne er laget etter en skisse fra Swirlydoos til mars-kitet, Indigo Blue, som jeg også har brukt mye fra på denne LO'en. Har også brukt blomster fra tidligere kit, og blomster og sommerfugler fra egne gjømmer. Mønsterarket er også her fra Scrapberry.

Nærbilde av clusterpynten nede i venstre hjørne. Her ser dere blant annet en del av en chipboard. Denne har jeg farget med embossingpulver og deretter klipt opp i biter, og brukt en nede i hjørnet og resten sammen med blomstene midt på.


Brukte en stensil til å lage kaffeflekker noen steder, og et gammelt tiny alpha til overskriften.


Under bildene ligger en heklet brikke, som fulgte med i kitet. Morsom effekt å bruke.


Jeg har brukt en stensil med tekst for å få en mer interessant bakgrunn.

I colored the mouse with hearts with Prismacolor pencils, cut it out and placed it on 3D adhesive pads on top of the four squares in the sketch.
I've used pp from Blue Fern Studio and four wooden hearts from Studio calico in the corners. The hearts where painted with metallic paint.

Stick it Down double page inspiration

It's time for more inspiration from the double page team at Stick it Down this month.

I made this layout:


And here is the sketch:


I have had fun using different media on this double page. I have used stamps, stensils, paints and mists for the background.
I used a dark color on my title and highlighted it with a white pen.


For embellishing I used some dies, a cactus and an filmstrip,


and a chipboard from Creative Embellishment, colored with gesso and some Prima Art sugar.

I told the story about the Cactus garden.


More of the background and embellishing.


The mists I've used on this layout are from Lindy's Stamp Gang and with the stensil have I used paints from Art Anthology.
