This year for Christmas, I've decided to make my own Christmas cards for my loved ones.
The fascination of recycling is is still my passion, so I've found a big pile of free postcards, that has been hidden away for many years now. With some gold leaf, glittering glue, a drawing - the cards have turned out to be very personal.. But I don't have in mind to make 20 or something!
Started out with at pencil sketch..

Gave her life with crayons, added a bit of shadows and so.. You know.

And finally, "messed" her up with glue, glitter, goldleaf, etc.
("God Jul" Means "Merry Christmas" in Danish)

Made another one (-and another, and another.. But they're not dry yet!)

Well, in a couple of days, these cards are arriving to my beloved family. Giving them a smile and a warm Christmas thought, is just as joyful as it is to make them..
Nothing beats a day like this. To make creative stuff, just give me the peace and relaxation I need so much, these days.

Merry Christmas, folks c")

Glædelig 1. Søndag i Advent! c")

I have finally stepped out of the stone age...

...and started blogging. That was about time!

For a long time, I've watched and read a lot of other blogs. Mainly from other creative folks, like myself.

I think this a great way to share with other people with creative interests, what I do. But the best part, though, is to find inspiration and the joy of watching what other crafters do.

Working with mixed-media, is quite new to me.. But I absolutely love it! For many years, I've either been drawing, OR painting OR making jewelry, collages, crocheting... But now i feel that I have found out, what's most dear to me: Making collages with watercolor/acrylic/drawing and different kind of papercuts from magazines, design paper etc.

As soon I'm getting famliar with this blogging-thing, I will upload photos with some of the stuff I make.

Right now, it's time for a hot cup of tea... It's so cold outside right now - Denmark is all frozen, and covered with beautiful snow. Brrr!
By the way: The picture is watercolor/acrylic and decoupage, on canvas. Measures 30x30 cm.
