showing what I have been working at

The show is held at
Kensington Town Hall on

I´ll have a proper preview of some
of the bears over at the bear site

Icad have come to an end

The Challenge is over
Icad have come to an end for this year.
I managed to make all 61 cards
one for each day.

This have been so much fun
and I´ll definitely going to do it again

Here´s some of the last cards






This is howw the making of card no. 57
looked like on my table

you can recognize some
on the next card too





I like all of these cards a lot

so I decided to frame some
so I could share

they really looks cool
in their new frame

all ready to hung

These are listed in my shop right now.
More will come.

If you have any preferences among the cards
and would like to have that speciel one
Let me know, and I´ll make a listing for you.

I´m going to use the cards in my creations too.
I see little books coming
Ideas are on my board


I´m currently working my hands off
on little bears for Hugglets

More about that soon

Wishing you a beautiful day my friends

More Icads

the icad challenge is 2/3 on the way
and it´s been a while since I´ve showed my cards.

here´s hole bunch


it didn´t go long before I went with a collage art theme


I think these little cards
are perfect for collages.


perfect for using those little left over pieces
and scraps there always are


and all those odd flea market finds
that people always ask me,
what I´m going to use that for...


here it is



lots of old photos
and sweet natures images


vintage sewing suppliers
and old stamps



vintage maps
and painted ephemera



and a little bit of vintage lace

the cards are pilling up
Love the sign of this.
I hope you have enjoyed too.

Have a wonderful day
Tina ♥♥♥

I was a little late for the party
but that doesn´t matter. there´s 
plenty of time for all the fun

and a little academy set from Derwent.
I think they will work out fine for a start.

Painting Poppies

Those of you, who have been around here
for long, know I´ve been trying my hands on
some sketching and painting.

trying out new tecniques
different medias

recently I signed up for a Poppy
painting class at Mitsib
 I just love the way she´s painting
her poppies.

this is really challenging
these poppies are made with watercolor.

I haven´t painted much with watercolor
so wanted to learn the tecnique for this too

here´s  my humble attemps

I´m having a hard time
trying to have the paint do as I wish

It looks very easy on those instructions
I tell you

I made these today
making a few in between

practice - practice - practice
I might get the hang of it eventually

Have a beautiful day
Tina ♥♥♥

Icad - Week one

I´m participating in the Icad challenge
over at Daisy Yellow this year.
I think I´ve told you already.

I´ve been wanting too, ever since I heard about
it last year.
It´s a great excuse to create every day.
I really like that.

These are my cards for week one








61 index cards when the challenge is over.
That is quite cool.

It´s not too late if
you would like to do this.
Just jump on the wagon and get started.

Have a great weekend

Tina ♥♥♥
