Happy Birthday - Simple heart window

Today I did a card for my Simple Sunday series, but when I sat down to edit my video I realized that the footage didn't work and the whole thing was just completely useless. So instead of uploading a new video I'll just have to show you my card here on the blog instead.

This card is super simple and could easily be replicated if one would need a lot of cards for something. I die cut a heart shaped window from a white piece of cardstock and then adhered it to a green card base. I also added a green button with some string to add a little bit more detail. I stamped a small sentiment i black ink and this card could be used for any occasion if you would just switch out the sentiment. I chose to stamp a birthday greeting since I always have use for cards like that.

Mixed Media - Live Life - Art Journal Page #5

Today I am finally dine editing the Art Journal video that I filmed a while back. It feels like it just took forever to get this video done. The whole editing did go pretty fast, but I think the hardest part for me is to actually take the time to sit down and start. Being lazy isn't really a good thing.

To make this page I used mostly acrylic paints, but I also added some Distress Stain, Spray Inks and marker to it. It is a bit different for me and I usually don't do "complicated" things like this, but I like to try new styles and experiment in my art journal. That is what the art journal is for anyway, right?

I hope you like it and if you want to see how I did this page, take a look at my YouTube video where I explain all the steps I did.

I also filmed a tutorial for this art journal page that you can find on my YouTube channel or here below.

Doily & washi tape - Thanks

Today I made a card using a few different products from Whiff of Joy. I had this wonderful doily die that I just wanted to use and I wasn't really sure what to do with it. But I started out by cutting it out on some white cardstock and then I found a bunch of scraps on my desk from previous cards I had made and just started playing around. Finally I came up with a design that I really liked and not only did I get a whole new card done, I also managed to clean up the scrap that was laying around om my desk.
