We want to start November in the best kind of way, by presenting a new talented Guest Designer – Marie Johansson! She will be staying with us for the rest of the year so keep your eyes open for plenty of inspiring projects these next couple of weeks!
I live in a small village in the north of Sweden. I have been addicted to scrapbooking for more than 10 years by now. I love that it makes me think and reflect about things that has happened to me and my family. And for me it is a way of relaxing after a hard days work as an Intensive Care Nurse.
At first when I found scrapbooking to be my new hobby, it was the colored and patterned papers that drew my attention. Then I started loving layering, and now I´m a complete mess…. I love playing around with gesso , paint and different spray inks/mists. I make layers using the different mediums and papers, journaling cards, stamps and all kind of different embellishments. Even though I mess up my pages pretty bad, I try to have some sort of structure of it all.
I currently design for Words & Paintery, the Color Room/Heart & Soul Artists & Page Drafts. Since I always look for new exciting creative challenges this Guest Desinger spot really got my creative mood up! Hope you find my work inspiring and take time to stop by my blog.
This tag was made with a plain vanilla tag as base. First of all I covered the tag with clear gesso to prep it for my other wet mediums. When dry, I randomly sprayed on pink, light green and light brown ink. To achieve a settled and soft color effect I sprayed on water. That makes the inks blend together. After some more drying (I use a heat gun cause I am pretty impatient) I added splatters of golden spray ink and a randomly stamped on text. The finishing touch is the beautiful picture from the picture paper that comes with the Days of Winter Collecion. I cut it out and covered with clear gesso. After drying I added it to my tag and decorated with sweet flowers, ribbons and the little tag.
Hope you enjoyed my little creation.
