Trouble, spring and craft

Standard

Hi !

I hope this post gets published have had some trouble with posting things the last few days. I have written things and then they have just disappeared. So I will try once again to write something.

I took actually a photo of the snow 2 days ago and that was lucky because now it is gone. And I think that maybe it was the last time it was snow now for a long time. So I will so you guys  hopefully the last snow for now. Yesterday the spring sun came out and lighten up the day and if that is not a sign for spring I don’t know what.

I have tried to make som crafts with metal cans insted of just throwing them away. First i tried to paint them with acrylic color and some of them turned out well and some did not. I almost think that you need to use a special kind of paint on the metal cans, so that the paint won’t come of. I also tried to decoupage them, and it was very fun to do that. They also looked very pretty. But I have not decided yet what to use them for. They just have to stand and look pretty till i figure that out.

Now when I am still talking about decoupage I just wanted to tell you about a thing I’am working on. It is a small cabinet that i have painted white and then am going to decoupage the inside and the outside with vintage images, like ads and post cards. I just love the look of vintage things. Maybe soon I will be finished with that, so I can show you.

I am also working on a bracelet that is inspired of enlish afternoon tea. So I have made clay miniature pastries and bread to have as charms on the bracelet. It is not fnished yet but in time I will submit a photo.

Hope you all have a nice day

See you soon

Surprise and Craft

Standard

Hi !

Yesterday I was at a surprise party for my cousins. They had choosen to celebrate all three of them at the same time, so there where many people there. It was really funny to see when they understood that it was a party at home, and they thought that they were going to have a nice and calm saturday night, but that was not the case. 🙂 But I think that they really appreciated it. So I made three bithday cards for them in watercolor and ink. And I am very content with the results, and they said that they liked them so that is a good sign.

Image

I totally love this card.

I have not had so much time for craft this week. I have been very tired. But when i have some time left crafting is almost the only time i do. I love to make things with my hands, and i don’t know if i should call it addictive. But I want to craft almost all the time, maybe it’s just me ?

I was in the city some days ago and I found a thing that I have been looking for a long time. It was a chalk board, but it was pretty plain. But I bought it anyway beacuse I wanted to re decorate it. It was in a light tree color and at first I painted it blue green ( one of my favorite colors right now ) but i was not satisfied with the results so decoupaged it. But I was still not

satisfied so I painted it in another green blue color and used sand paper to make it look vintage/old. I also glued on lace to each side, to make it more pretty, and then finally I was glad with the results. 🙂 Thired time the charm as some say .
So here is the photo of the finished product.

Snowy Window with Sunshine

Standard

Hi!

So today the snow is back! But i don’t know if I should be happy or sad. I really love the snow because it lights up the day but I also really want it to be spring. So I finally can see my flowers. When I the garden yesterday i just looked on the ground and i saw some flowers coming up. It made me so happy. But now I just have to wait till they blossom.

I thought that i would submit some clay work that I did a long time ago. I do think i will start making some again, somtimes I only make clay stuff and sometimes I only paint and so on. So i think I will make some new clay stuff soon.

This cookie is made by air dried clay and acrylic paint. Now when i think about it, I did this only some weeks ago. I made it as a raisin cookie but it can also be chocolate.

ImageHere is a macaroon jewlery, that you can have as a charm on a bracelet or a necklace.

I thinkt that is it so cute.

I made this frame a long time ago, can really remeber. I know that it was when i just about started with clay, so it is not perfect bot I still like it. The color has faded a little but I don’t think that it matters.

Here is a button that i made around christmas. I had a hole series of them. With different berries and fruits on them. This is the cherry, I also have one with bluberries, strawberries and lemon.

 The sun has been shining almost all they, so even if there is snow you can still feel the spring calling. I have seen that many other bloggers are doing things for 14 feb so I thought that i also wanted to do somthing and i came up with a great art diary painting. That I will show you guys soon. Oh and I also have to tell you that i have finally bought knobbs for a drawer. It took some time for me to choose which one I wanted but when I did I was very glad.

Hope you all have a great dayor evening.

Bye

See you soon
