Summerchallenges – hollidayphotos

Now the summerchallenges at Veckans Skiss has started! You get two sketches this week and two sketches next week. Read all about it here!

Jennie have made a lovely sketch with the twist: use several hollidayphotos. You can see it here!


Of course I took the opportunity to make a layout based on it!

Title:” Wild kids”

Last summer we went to Furuviksparken, a park with a zoo, a funfair and a area when the recorded earlier episodes of ”Wild kids”, a adventureprogram for children. The boys was very thrilled to get there (and even me and my husband:) thought it was fun to test some of the challenges the kids does in the programs.


This diecut from Cosmo Cricket works well with this theme!


I added some tickets and used corrugated alphas from Jillibean Soup.


I used my easy stamp and my new rollstamp with cameras from Cocoa Daisy


I hope you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!


Blue blue winds and water

Title: ”Time for bath”

This is my take for a guest- dt call at ”En liten butik i Mörrum”

The theme” blue blue winds and water” made me think of summer and water so I choose these photos where my boys is preparing the pool in the garden.

I wanted to have a lot of blue in the background. I started to use two shades of blue of NeoColors II. Then I mixed blue dylusionmist with glassbeads medium. I used the mix with a chevronstencil to create the feeling of waves.

I also splattered the blue dylusionmist and let it stream just like water does. I layered tissuepaper from Tim Holtz and a package from Prima behind the photos.


Here you can se some close ups:

I wanted to use blue as a main color but also green as it´s a lot of green in the photos. I think the colorcombo shines together.


I added a tag from a store and made some splatters on it.


The photoframes comes from Jillibean Soup, I love to use them, the words pops out when you got a bright color behind it.


Wish me luck :)
