Magic Is All Around Us!

Min aller første art journaling side ♥ Alver er et tema som har gått igjen i livet mitt helt siden jeg var barn, og trodde de fantest på ordntlig, så det passet godt å begynne med! (Stemplet fins også som silhuett stempel, lagde et kort med den her). 

Har sett SÅ mye flott mixed-media på youtube og bloggere i det siste, at jeg fikk lyst å lage noe annet enn kort :) Ta en titt på feks. Finnabair / Art Files, Maremi, Vicky Papaioannou, Donna Downey, France Papillon, Limor Webber, og Gabrielle Pollacco for å nevne 'noen få' av favorittene mine ♥ Og Prima marketing inc. kanalen har også mye mixed media inspirasjon.. og ønskelista mi blir bare lengre og lengre.. For foreløbig har jeg ikke så mye slike produkter (Får prøve å vinne i lotto!), men jeg har bestillt masse spennende fra Bikuben, så der gikk tilbake-på-skatten pengene ;)

Sparte litt penger på selve journaling boka da - fant meg nemlig en eventyrbok til 10kr. på brukthandelen med gode tykke sider! Den er passe stor, litt over A4, så nå kan jeg bruke alle de spesielt fine arkene jeg har kviet meg for å klippe opp til å ha på kort - og pynt som jeg egentlig har lyst å beholde selv, og ikke 'bare gi bort' på kort jeg lager ;)

Hovedmotivet er et nydelig digistempel fra Scrapper's Delights som er vår sponsor i denne ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #110. Og som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema :)  
Har du sett bloggcandyen min forresten? Mye flott scrappe godis, og alle kan delta! ♥

This is my first ever art-journaling page & I must say I am very happy with it! I love fairies, pixies and elves ~ and as they've been such a big part of my life ever since I was a child (and actually believed they were real) it seemed a perfect page to start with ♥ I've been watching so much gorgeousness online lately, so I wanted to make my own Art Journal! Such a lovely fairy stamp this is (I got the silhouette as well - see my card with it here). 

There is SO much inspiration on youtube and blogs from amazing artists like Finnabair / Art Files, Maremi, Vicky Papaioannou, Donna Downey, France Papillon, Limor Webber, & Gabrielle Pollacco to name but 'a few' of my favourites ♥ And the channel for Prima marketing inc. too. My wishlist keeps getting bigger and bigger ;) I have spent all of my return-on-taxes-money on new craft stash, so when those packages arrives I'll be in heaven for sure!

I saved a few bucks on buying an old fairytale book at a second-hand store for a dollar! It's a big book with nice thick pages, and some pages I'll be using almost like they are, since they're so pretty ♥
Details of the book before I covered it!
Look it's the Emperor without any clothes on! ;) 
I had fun reading the old fairytales in this book while gluing pages together and deciding wich ones to keep for artjournaling on... Sorry emperor, you got gessoed! :) 
[The Emperor's New Clothes by H.C. Andersen]

  9. I've yet to create an art journal page but it looks very exciting and yours is beautiful. Fairies are one of my favourites too and I always find it easier to create with a subject I love. You have so many pretty layers and details and gorgeous colours going on too.
    I have been rather absent from commenting also as I've been looking after my mum - she had a hip replacement operation at 84 but is doing very well now so hopefully I will get back to normal visits.
