Reflections


Glad to see you again, I've had a small blogger brake, catching up with chores. I've been painting some too and this piece isn't the easiest to photograph so you only get two parts of it until I'm pleased with the full pic. I'm calling her the reflecting lady, she's seems to be brooding or mulling over something. My own reflection is that I should consider a sturdier paper when painting, it looks like she has some skin issues.

I'm entering Paint Party Friday, a great place for inspiration, they are so talented there! I'm also entering Friday Faces, another inspirational blog.

My fathers auntie painted fabulous roses, these reminds me of her.


Thank you for visiting, it's much appreciated! Today is a special one in the Nordic countries as we celebrate Midsummer eve in a grand way. The night don't get dark and the Nature stands in her best dress. We'll have pickled herring, early potatoes, salmon, grilled meat, strawberries outdoors and sing a song or two. Don't even dew drops look better than diamonds in the early morning light? Have a wonderful weekend where ever you are!

Glad midsommar! Happy Midsummer! Hyvää Juhannusta!

Love and hugs

Always a Chick


Good morning my lovelies, hope your weekend is great so far. We're enjoying a Bank Holiday so I'm making the most of it. I used snippets in different yellow and orange shades to make this card, so I'm entering Pixie's Snippets Playground this week too.

I'm also entering Craft Stamper's Get Inky challenge as I used:

Black Memento ink for the bird image
Brusho inks for the Stamplorations bird and Cuttlebug alphabet cut outs
Distress inks for the Tim Holtz feathers and the stamped panel with an Inkadinkado feather



I so love this image and Brushos.


Different textures to add interest. Can't remember the make of the sweet DP snippet.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Love and hugs
Maarit
