2016 has been a fantastic year. It started with getting some of my artwork shown at CHA, at Kaisercraft's stand. Four of my layouts and a paper dress was picked for the stand. I also visited CHA in January. This was a fantastic trip.
I posted every day from CHA. You can see lots of photos and films from CHA- spring 2016 in my blogposts for January 2016:
The 1870's paper dress
This dress was created for Kaisercraft, in one day, and sent around the world to Australia. Then the dress was shipped to America, to be shown at CHA. When CHA was over, I picked up the dress, anb brought it with me home. The dress managed a trip around the world without being destroyed.
Finnabair's rust pastes
Finnabair showed a lot of fantastic new products at CHA. The rust pastes was something I really have enjoyed working with this year.
The Graphic 45 tram
Laura Denison had designed a tram for Graphic 45's stand. I got a task from Hobbykunst, to create a tram with Graphic 45's City scapes. I decided to create a Norwegian version, and created it to look like Oslo's first tram.
Small mixed media canvas
This is a small canvas, created with lots of Prima and Kaisercraft products. I also created a tutorial for the canvas.
Large Mixed Media canvas
This was a large mixed media canvas created this spring. The canvas is 40cm x 70cm. The canvas has been created with Prima papers and products and has become quite a dear canvas for me. A lot of the items used, is from old sewing machines, buttons, zips and Prima flowers. I do sew a lot, so this was made with that in mind. The photo on the canvas is of my dog, who passed away this summer.
This is a confirmation set, created with papers from Papirdesign for Hobbykunst. The tutorial for the shoes, card and pop-up box, can be found in the blogpost.
The Prima Wedding dress
This dress was created using fabric hardener and some of Prima's new flower and paper collections this spring. The dress was created with I have a tutorial for the dress in the blog. I have used deco foil on the dress and entered Fave Crafts competition after the Bloggers Networking Event after CHA.

This is a compass box with a minialbum. All the papers are from Prima's French Riviera collection. The binoculars are hand made, and they do work.
Minialbum with a vintage camera box
I had been on Kaisercraft's design team for a year, and I decided to try for another year on the Kaisercraft design team. Applying for Kaisercraft, you apply for the first round, and then they have a second round with the top 25. Everyone who enters the second round, gets a collection to work with for the second round. I must admit, I do like this kind of application. There are so many people applying for these designteams, that I do like the idea of a second round. I got onto the design team for another year, and I am really happy for that.
I have created a large amount of Christmas ornaments this season. This ornament is one of them. The ornaments has been with small planes, vintage gramophone, vintage cars, houses, churches, towns and with a hint of steampunk.
Design teams and magazines
This year I have been on Kaisercraft's and Hobbykunst's design teams for the start of the year. At the end of the year, I started writing for The Papercrafting and Ett trykk. I have also been asked to be on the design team for Little Darlings - LDRS - creative, and will start with that from January.
Wishing you all a happy new year.
