My last sketch at My Sketch World

Unfortunately this is my last post for My Sketch World. Lucy is going to keep publishing sketches at MSW on a irregular basis but the designteam will not continue.  As a fun thing we have been digging around old sketches this month. I have made a layout based on this from August 2010:

Sketch from My Sketch World August 2010. Made of Lucy Chesna


Here is my take:



I have used a stamp (I don´t know the brand) with circles tied together. I don´t use it so much but I think it´s great for backgrounds like this, what do you think?. On top I added mist and journaling around the photo.

Summerchallenges – A mixed bag

Tanja have done a great sketch with the theme picnic to our summerchallenge at Veckans Skiss. You can see it here!


Here is my take:

Title:” A mixed bag”

At Swedens nationalday the family took a picnic trip. We had packed a lot of yummie food like hotdogs and buns. The boys couldn´t wait to eat the buns for dessert so they ate the hotdogs and the buns at the same time:)

Yellow and green with some touch of grey….


This stamp from Cocoa Daisy is so cool



I also used some twine to get dimension



I hope you havn´t missed that our summerchallenges is ongoing at Veckans Skiss. Take the chans and join us! Read about the rules here!

Singing out loud

This is a layout I made earlier this year for Inzpira Magazine. I hade the honour to get it published in 2/2013 at page 21. It´s my take on the liftchallenge and I have lifted the colours, arrows and the horizontal lines. The layout is about my son when he sings together with his theatergroup at the winterplay.

I stamped some sheet music to reinforce the theme


Turqouise and orange work well together according to my opinion, what do you think?


I cut some banners out of scraps.

A mixed media card

Today I will show you this mixed media card I made on a  class at My Sketch World a while ago.

The background is build up with resist tequnice, stencils and three different colors of mists. I have decorated with clouds and a strip of gauze and washitape that I have wrinkle. In the corner I put some gesso and then stamped ”Thank you” with Primas alfabetstamps, I really love those fonts! I mounted it on a bigger piece of cardstock wich I stamped a border around.

This is a different card from what I use to make and at first I didn´t like how it turned out at all but over time it has grown on me and now I think it´s really nice and personal:)


Have a nice day!

Altered mini-album 2

When you make a mini-album you must think of using thin embellishment. I have used die-cuts, tags, stamps and washitape. I love my easy stamp, it´s a roller stamp with a zickzack pattern. Another tip for thin embellishment is to cut out shapes from patterned paper, I did that with the little houses, they are from Bo Bunnys collection ”Alora”.

Creative Jumpstart – Tag

This month Nathalie Kalbach has gathered a whole bunch of talented artists to get us out there more creative!! And this is superfun!! Every day one of the artist send you a little video with different things, tutorials, tips etc. The red thread is to inspire and they have succeded, I can tell you!! Here is a tag I made from a video with Heidi Swapp who teaught us how to mist and stamp within masks and stencils. This tag is my take on this:

I made a heartstencil out of a paper. Then I used a stencil and a Maya Road Limemetallic mist, on that I sprayed coppermistfrom Tattered Angels, to get more effect. After it dried I stamped a couple of different stamps. On the little heart I added a button. I´m very pleased with my first take in the Creative Jumpstart 2013

Bidrag till Februariutmaning hos Scrapgalen

Februariutmaning hos Scrapgalen är denna månad en BOM- utmaning där man ska göra en layout eller minialbum som handlar om vad man är bra på.

Jag har verkligen lekt loss med stenciler, mister och en lila metallicfärg som går att smeta ut med fingrarna och tunna ut med vatten och göra den rinnig. Finns att köpa hos Weralena. På den här layouten har jag också använt mullberry papper som jag blött i kanten och rivit remsor och fäst i två nyanser av lila. Fotografierna är tagna av min snart 3-åriga son:). Trädblomman är en stämpel som jag klippt ut och fäst på bakgrunden. Stjälken och bladen är målade för hand (ett tappert försök att doodla mer:)

Nu håller jag tummarna:)


Februarichallenge at Scrapgalen is a BAM-challenge where the challenge is to do a layout or minialbum about what you are good at.
I have played a lot with stencil, mists and a lilac metallic paint. I have also used Mullberry paper in two tones of lilac and teard them in stripes. The flower is a round stamp which I have stamped and cut ut. I have also doodle a litle:)

Know I  cross my fingers:)



The only limitation is your imagination!
