Once upon a time...

 ...there lived a beautiful princess ♥

Det som tar aller størst plass i filmsamlinga mi er Disney filmer, tror nok jeg har så og si alle klassikerne og mange av oppfølgerne. Gleder meg stort til vi endelig får Disney+ til Norge! Endelig får vi også sett the Mandalorian og baby Yoda ;) 
Kan du gjette hvilke to Disney prinsesser jeg hentet inspirasjon fra da jeg lagde denne mixed media artjournaling siden? *svar nederst i bloggposten*

Egentlig handlet sidene - før jeg endret den - om en helt annen historie om 'Den forheksede prinsessen'. Illustrusjonen helt til venstre er det eneste jeg beholdt av barneboksiden, noen ganger beholder jeg deler av tekst og bilder og andre ganger har jeg malt over alle detaljene. Ikke alle illustrasjonene som er like flotte som dette ;) 

Boka den heter 'Verdens vakreste Eventyr - 6. bind', funnet til en billig penge på en brukthandel. Nå får den nytt liv som artjournaling eventyr bok! Du kan se alle de andre sidene jeg har laget i den her: Bloggposter om Art Journaling.

Dette er mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #182., som er sponset av vår egen Angelique med et stempel & die sett! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

The biggest part of my movie collection are Disney animated movies. Think I almost have all the classics now, and alot of the sequels. I'm really looking forward to when we will get Disney+ here in Norway. Very unfair that we haven't already! ... I have no idea what all the fuzz is about the Mandalorian and baby Yoda!!! ;)
Can you guess wich two Disney princesses I got my inspiration from for my mixed media artjournaling page spread? *answer at the bottom of post*

Actually theese pages, before I altered them into an art journal spread, were a whole other story but about 'the enchanted princess'. You can tell by the image she is a princess, so I thought it would fit my own princess story. That illustration to the left is the only thing I didn't paint over, sometimes I keep more of the original pages, but not everything in the book looks as good as this princess image ♥

I picked out paints and papers from my stash 
with colors that matched the princess illustration.

The book is named 'Verdens Vakreste Eventyr' wich translates into 'Worlds most beautiful fairytales' book number 6 in a series of old childrens books. My 3rd edition book was made in 1981!
Here is all the blogposts I have about pages in my Art Journaling book, my very first one btw. :)

This is my DT creation for this fortnights challenge #182. at Creative Fingers wich is sponsored by our own DT Angelique this time with a stamps & die set! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

Stay safe and Get your Craft on!
Take care everyone! ♥ ♥ ♥ 
I used stickles & nuvodrops to add some shine and 
glitter to details, and the castle is embossed with
both sand, gold & bronze emb.powders.

I mixed up a dark green paint wich I dabbed thru
this rose stencil, then embossed with gold emb.powder.

 The tree/wood pattern was made with texture paste
and a stencil plus some scratching with a spatula.
Since the paste is greyish white, I painted over
the woods with my brown paint, and also added some 
black & brown T.H. distress crayons & stains.

The gorgeous Rapunzel hair was fussycut from
a designerpaper and popped up with 3D foam.

I used a tissuepaper on this page, sisal and some 
pretty leaf pattern rhinestone embellishments.. 
of which I have had for ages not wanting to use
just on a card.. now I can keep 'em myself! ;)
