Art journal

I've recently started my journey for an art journal. I'm trying to dig out some items from my boxes to enjoy more on a daily basis. I find great inspiration on Art Journal Journey, and as the theme this month is butterflies, here's a new one. 

I made some sun flowers years ago, and now one of them will end up on the front of my journal. Enjoy.

Quiet book and OMG finish for June

Last week I finished a new quiet book. Hope you enjoy the pictures. You have to go here to see the video, as I couldn't upload it to the blog. I'll write the text in Norwegian this time. 

This was also my OMG goal, and a while ago it looked like this.

Forfatter kan jeg nok ikke kalle meg. Men bøker lager jeg, og de blir finere for hver gang synes jeg. Mye arbeid med en slik bok, men den er skikkelig gøy å lage. Bøkene kan tilpasses med aktiviteter for forskjellige aldrer, helt fra nyfødt til skolealder. Du kan se en video ved å trykke på linken.

Forsiden er laget slik at det er plass til å applikere navnet til barnet. Her kan man snakke med barnet om hvem som bor i huset og hva som er utenfor. Det er også flere stoffkvaliteter på mange sider, bra for den taktile sansen. 

På disse to sidene er det muligheter for å bytte ut blomster som ligger i lomma. Det er borrelås på baksiden, og man kan lett supplere med andre blomster selv.

Her er det mulig å lære seg å knytte skolisser, eventuelt knytte de opp iallfall. Flere forskjellige sko på siden som man kan snakke om, både type sko og farger.

Hva finner du i lomma? Her er en liten fingerdukke som kan gjemme seg i armene eller bak føttene til roboten. Her er også bokstaver, og du kan supplere med hele alfabetet om du vil.

Her to sider der du finner små skatter bak øret til elefanten og bak lukene. Her er også farger tema, samt stor/liten, husdyr/ville dyr, hvor dyrene lever osv.

Snorer som kan dras fram og tilbake, og skjerf du kan fikle med snorene på. Du kan også spørre om det er noe som er opp/ned, barn like det. Om du ikke ser det, så er blomsten og hjertet opp/ned. Hvor mange snømenn ser du?

Bjørnen sover, bjørnen sover. Sangen står på baksiden av kortet, som har plass i lomma.

Siste side er fargerik og har en figur i vinduet. Her ble det en katteprins.

Boka er myk og deilig, har til sammen 12 sider, og ingen av bøkene blir like. Jeg kan gjerne lage flere dersom noen er interessert.

Scrap Happy June

Mid month, and I've started a new scrappy and recycled quilt. I love using old fabrics, and here I have mostly curtains. Please visit Rutigt and her linky party to find more scrappy projects.


And I made two more pages for scrap books. I love to use my scraps like this.

And before I posted, I even made another page. But scraps are multiplying, so I've not seen the bottom of my box yet.

Butterflies

I love butterflies, and I also catch and register them. After a photo session I let them out, of course. So nice then that the June theme for Art Journal Journey is butterflies. So I made a new page for my own journal. And I've tried to show you some details in it. Enjoy!

Findings in plastic bags

This week I've been looking for a special fabric I know I have somewhere. I didn't find it, but instead I found this. Years ago, before I started my blog, I made this beautiful star. I don't know what it was intended to become, but I really love it. And I have to do something with it.

After some digging in the box, I found another bag. Obviously I had started stars in other colours too.

 And at last I found a third bag with more stripe blocks. And there was also more fabrics to match. So now I have a new challenge going on. And I love it.

June Mini Madness

Last week I couldn't resist the challenge from PamelaQuilts to do these small and sweet blocks for a June sampler quilt. You can see the start here. Until now I have made one block every day, and here they are.








And here is my most beautiful rhododendron just now.

One Monthly Goal for June

New project, again

I couldn't resist the challenge from PamelaQuilts for a June Mini Madness. My blocks are 4", but she also gives you 6" blocks if you like. So I made the two first ones, and time will show how long I'm able to make a block a day. Crazybird is totally shocked, as he thought I was going to finish some quilts this year.

Growing my mini La Passion

A week's work with parts for my mini La Passion gave me this result. Home again I can start sewing them on the main work. Soon I can show you a progress you are able to notice. These hexies are 1/4", and I think I have more than 10 000 by now.

Hot pad in a rhododendron

I just finished the binding on this new hot pad. And it ended up in a beautiful rhododendron, with just the perfect colours. But I wonder, what is up and what is down on this one? As usual 7"x11".
