This and That

Some days I work like crazy, and then some days it’s more cooking and cleaning and doing other boring stuff than making art. Although, cooking for me is hardly ever boring. 🙂

Today I made a healthy bread, with whole wheat flour, rye flour, olive oil, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds. It doesn’t look very pretty, but it sure is healthy and tasty. 🙂

Then I finally photographed a book I made almost three weeks ago.

It has corrugated cardboard for covers which was decoupaged, painted, glittered just s tiny bit 🙂 , lace, fabric, and it has a leather binding. Inside are many pages of different papers, something I like very much.

Then there is some work in progress:

This journal still needs signatures to be sewn in, but the cover is mostly done. I think. 🙂

I also played with fabric scraps, making some kind of collage that I’m still not sure what I’ll do with. The photo looks a bit blurry, but actually it’s organza on top that makes it look like that.

We had a great time with my relatives this weekend. My cousin celebrated his Daughter’s first birthday, and it was a wonderful opportunity for all of us to get together and dance and sing, which we love to do. 🙂

Something a bit Masculine

Well, it was time to make something without flowers and lace. 🙂

I bought my husband a leather wallet, and it came in a cardboard box, quite big and very sturdy. It was perfect for paint and decoupage.

But it was also perfect for storing a journal inside.

Various pages inside, some with old photos of plains and pilots. Well, I am married to a military pilot, so no wonder I used these. 🙂

Late Night Fun

New ATCs! Just for fun! 🙂

First two were made with recycled cardboard.

For the second two I used junk mail on which I “clean” my paint brushes. When I finish painting, there is always a little bit of paint left on the brush, so why waste it? Just smear it on any kind of paper and after some time and a few layers, you’ll end up with a nice background for many projects.

The last one was made with scraps of my hand painted fabric. Nothing complicated, very simple, I just added a little bit of black puff paint, and a touch of white to stamp “truth” on it. I like how it turned out.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 🙂
