Top 10 for 2016

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. 

Confirmation wishes

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.

Vintage compass box with a minialbum

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.

Christmas ornaments

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.

 The last Christmas ornament this year, is a larger ornament than the last ones. This is 10cm in diameter, so I thought of placing two houses in the ornament to create a Christmas scene.

The papers are from Maja's Summertime collection, together with some white patterned paper for the roof.

The little tree is from Rayher.

The Christmas acrylic ornament is also from Rayher. 

Enjoy the last few days of your Christmas week.

Ready for Christmas, Mixed media style

Mixed media is so much fun and quite challenging. There a huge amount of techniques that can be used. Even if you have worked with it for a long time, you never really know everything. There are so many things that can be altered, and even if you alter the same ting over again, it will never end up just the same. Mixed media does not need to be an expensive hobby. You do need some good glue, paints and mists, but other than that, you can find a lot of old things to use This is one of those examples. I have used an old toy can and a lot of old jewelry to make this little mixed media van. 

The old van is a Jimmy van from the Norwegian kids series Gråtass. The van was found in a second hand shop.

First, I painted the car white. Then I glued several pieces of jewelry, buttons, microbeads and other bits and bobs on it, and painted them white too. 

Then, I sprayed parts of the car with green and blue sprays. 

Flowers and snowballs were glued on.

On the back, I have added a small tree. At the base, I have added a small circle of linen, and tied it around the base of the tree. 

The Christmas gifts, has been created with Kaisercraft's Sea Breeze collection. I have used ribbon and paper strips around the gifts. I have also added a small raindeer at the back. 

This mixed media van, can be seen at Hobbykunst.

Materials used:

SOLO GOYA Art Acryl Basic White 100 ml tube Kaisercraft: Sea Breeze Paper Pack Liquitex: Super Heavy Matte Acrylic Gel Medium
