Vi er veldig stolte av å kunne presentere dere for denne fantastiske dama fra Sverige nå i februar:
Milo har laget et flott mini kurs/steg for steg forklaring for oss, så følge med senere i blogposten!
Først ut er noen spørsmål...
1) Når startet du med scrappingen?
At 1995 I´ve start to buy my first stamps. Then I made papers with them for some years, and then it took some more years before I totally stucked into scrapbooking, at 2006.
2) Hva inspirerer deg?
Everything! I love to see others creations, and I can see something laying on the street that give me ideas. I have lots of ideas!
3) Er det noe du ikke kan klare deg uten av utstyr/stæsj/etc?
I can´t live without my cutting machine, my edge scraper, pincett, crackle paint, lace and roses!
4) Hvilke scrappere inspirerer deg for tiden og hvorfor?
Lots of people inspire me! I love to look at pages like Pinterest at others art. I love to look at creations in my style, shabby chic and vintage. Some of my favorites are Minna Olen, Monique Lokhorst, Ingrid Gooyer, Debbie Dolphin & Heidi Filharmonica.
5) Har du en spesiell teknikk eller framgangsmåte du liker mer enn andre når du scrapper?
I love to distress edges, sew my edges and use lots of different shapes on my card.
This is how I create.
First I choose things I want on my card. Here is both decorations, motives and papers. I NEVER glue anything before I´ve put it together at the card, and I´m satisfied with the places for everything. I can sit for an hour and move around things before I´m totally satisfied.
This is my favorite tools.
This is my favorite medium; gesso, white crackle paint, fran-tage embossing, glossy accent, stickles Star Dust, chalk, sparklers (like stickles but thinner - you have to use a brush) and distress paint. I´m not use everything on every creation, but almost.
First I roll around every paper like this. Or use a sewing machine.
Then I put on some chalk...
..or distress paint... or gesso... it´s different from time to time.
And then I distresss the edges with an edge scraper. It´s easier to do that AFTER chalk, because the chalk make the paper a little bit wet, and I prefer that. AND the chalk will be alive a little bit longer.
When I´m totally satisfied with how I want everything to be on my creation, I glue it.
Then I use a brush and paint white gesso at flowers, papers, corners, charms and other things. Just to make it shabby. I prefer it that way. It looks a little bit more alive then. After gesso I use crackle paint here and there so it got crackled and looks old.
I use stickles, star dust is my favorite, at flowers and some details.
I love to use glossy accent on details. If it´s a colored motive I use it on shoes, eyes, lips somtimes, buttons and other small details. I love the effect it will make to the whole creation. Here I have used it at the text. It´s stickers and i like it to be a little bit glossy to pop.
When the creation has dried it looks like this!
The hot air ballons is chipboard, and they comes from Scrapiniec.
