time for something new...

I've been away from all the wonderful challenges for quite some time now... If you take a look here you'll understand why :) I have been so busy trying to go in a different direction - and man it feels GOOD!!!! I'm just learning - no perfection expected and I am having so much fun on the way. I can recommend Suzi's classes to EVERYONE! Here are a few samples of what I have been up to lately

"My silent friend"

"La belle jardiniere"

Gothic Arches - Winter sports

Ok, christmas is over... but I can't seem to make friends with winter and snow unless it has something to do with christmasy sparkle. Plus - you can't start making christmas cards too early, right? ;)) This is my entry for this weeks challenge.

Pennants swap

This swap was hosted by Lisa at Simple Journeys - quite some time ago - I'm really ashamed that I didn't get to show the banner earlier. But - better late than never ;) Thank you all who participated for these wonderful wonderful pennants!

Art creation friday

This is my first time to participate in the challenge of art creation friday . What fun! Be sure to check out the site - wonderful inspiration!!!

I made this card using Golden Gel Medium for the image transfer (I love transfer!!!:)) on a watercolored background. Stamps are by Nara Studio and Time to stamp.

thank you june

I got this award form june and I I'm very honored to have gotten it. Now the thing is that you have to pass it on to 7 other blogs... But - after having joined the gypsy caravan of the One World One Heart event - it's impossible for me to pass it on to just 7!!! There are so many awesome blogs out there! I pass this award on to all the participants of OWOH! thank you all for showing your wonderful artwork!

TGIF - books

I made this simple card for the TGIF challenge this week. The background is cheap brown paper - crumpled and sponged with bleach, then I sanded it a little. The writing and the watch are white embossed and highlighted with perfect pearls. That never shows on the screen though... :(

WS - Lace

Perfect theme for me :)) alot of my projects include lace, I can never get enough of it...

I also used some pink pepper on this one - I brought it home from Egypt about five years ago. It looks and smells so nice, but there is no way I would ever acctually EAT any of it - The color is not even waterproof ;)
So the theme of this card may as well be : Sugar and spice and all the things nice - that's what little girls are made of :))

Arty Gilrz - Transparent

This weeks theme on Arty Girlz was perfect for trying my new gel medium :) hooray got that done from the to-do-list :))

So this simple card created by playing with another new medium is my entry for this week. The sentiment stamp is by The Stampsmith.

Gothic Arches - Black, white and a hint of red

Ok, I really like to look at black and white combinations but I am so bad at creatig them - To me my pieces always look too naked *sigh* So I decided to make a miniature gothic arch for this challenge. Just some time ago I finished John Irving's "Until I find you"... so now you know where the inspiration came from *lol* Not quite as thrilling as some of his other novels but still worth reading...


I got this wonderful award from Willy. Thank you so much! :)) So the thing about this award is that you have to nominate seven blogs with their blog links, email them and post this award on your blog with the link going back to the person who awards you.

Now nominating just seven blogs is quite a challenge because there are so many blogs I love to visit...

My first nomination is Sija - although I'm almost sure that she has gotten the award several times already :))

I could go on all night - but - just seven ;)
