Just a sneak peak !!

Have you visited Caterina Giglio and seen her beautiful videos, http://caterinagiglio.blogspot.dk/, if you have , you have also seen she made 2 videos ,showing how to create a wonderful concertina book, her way ! 

I got so interested that I had to try my hand, and I`m not finished at all, but wanted
to show you 3 pages, I did. I am not totally following ,or trying to
copy ,Cat, but have added a little different things myself, like the 
paper napkin and little more color.


I painted the very simple flowers, without adding much color!
they are indeed very simple, as I`m not a painter, but I loved trying!!


4 pages are now waiting to get their own little flower decoration,
and then the binding starts.


Ofcourse I will show the finished result,
Thank you dear Cat, for your lovely video, your art is amazing,
and I love your tiny book, so had to give it a try, my way !!

Maybe you will like to have a look,too, dear friends ,on the  video,
you find it easily, following the link, and then searching !!

Hugs and love

HELLO FRIENDS, HOPE YOUR WEEK WAS GREAT !!

Back again with a new card, as ,almost ,usual, lol, made
with both papers and fabrics. I transferred the old photo ,
to cotton, and layered it with old laces , wall paper,
packing material, and a few flowers and buttons 


I just had to add the cross to her necklace ,it seemed
to belong there !!


On one of my tours, this amazing collection of fungi, caught
my eyes, there were a huge amount on the old tree stump!!



Aren`t they beautiful !!!


And so is the sun shining so lovely into the sea. 


Thank you for your visit, it makes me very happy 
seeing and hearing from you here on my blog !!

Hugs and love, Dorthe 

p.s. forgot to tell you, that Mathilde is visiting here, the coming week :-)
She has winter vacation from school, and will spend it here ,for which 
I`m so happy . 
Only thing is,that you will not see me around for a week, but I promise to 
do some following up, on your blogs, after !!!

IN MY PINK MOOD !!

Already entering February, after January disappeared just like that...
I wonder if you felt the same , ...the days are just running, one 
after the other .

This collaged hanger was created for a dear friend, I have known
for many, many years. 
She has the most beautiful blog ,showing her wonderful
creations - I`m sure many of you, know her, : Jillayne  A Fine Seam http://quiltingfabrications.blogspot.dk/
It is so lovely, to go on being in contact, with old blogging friends.


This amateur embroidery, is surely not to compare,
with Jillaynes stunning creations, but I love to 
have a needle in my hands, some evenings.


And a spring card, to just remember how
wonderful it will be, when it is here, -maybe late
next months !!
I used Tim Holz flower die, and word,- leaves, and buttons 
are other companies , -and old tea dyed laces, to create
the card, onto handmade paper. 


I hope your week is good, hope you enjoy it,
and hope you are all doing good !!

Hugs and love

COZY CREATIVENESS AND NATURE EXPERIENCES



A winter card created for a friend, using TH flower die , the sweet girls-head, 
is part of a wonderful winter stamp, I was gifted from my very dear Lynne ,
and the mitten and Let it snow, also received from a very dear friend , for Christmas.
Thank you both ! The white flower beneath , is wonderful 100% wool-and it 
is all layered onto a piece of corrugated cardboard !!


I love to dye little pieces of different fabrics and laces,
and here it is still in the pot, after a bath with tea, a few red onion shells,
and a green avocado shell. The tea won, and the other elements,
in fact also added to the rich brown tone. The laces still very light,are
only half cotton, and therefore does not accept the dye very well!!


From a walk last weekend, -no it is not my husbond, but someone unknown,
fishing there under the  sky and in the  sea!!


And here the coastline we walked, it was beautiful and sunny,
but very cold!!


We also walked through the forest, and here I am leaning against a beautiful, green-mossy branch,
can you tell from my clothes it is very cold ?? 


I`m wishing you a wonderful new week, starting tomorrow.
Thank you to everyone visiting, and commenting, it is so very much appreciated !!

Hugs and love from Dorthe

HELLO JANUARY !!

Winter is here, but on and off , ....one day snow,
the other rain, so what better that stay inside for 
a little creative time !

This card I made for a friend, using papers
and Islandic moss for the nest.
The bird is a die cut from PaperArtsy
and the lovely stamp of leaves from Memory BOX .


I also used a piece of paper napkin  for the
stamping of quote , on the white layer,from behind
the postage stamps.
The color is Infusions Inks. 


This is a display on my chest of drawers.
I could not lay away the stunning  angel stander, I was gifted
of my dear friend Lynne, after Christmas, so it is still here,
and also the most beautiful card she created for me. 
Both so gorgeous, and amazing.


The old silver bowl holds hearts from friends, and to the left
I have my collection of little,old ,red jewelry boxes .

I hope your first January week was filled with lovely hours, and wishes 
you all a wonderful new week.

Hugs and love
Dorthe

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL , DEAR FRIENDS-

Very soon we have the Holidays and I want to wish you all a very happy Christmas time.
I hope it will be filled with beautiful and happy adventures for you all !!
This is a card I created for a dear friend !!


*******************************************

And this is a beautiful gift I received from another very dear friend 


 The most wonderful and so lovely
card  and star.
The card  with the warm dressed girl , so very beautiful
 resting so adorable onto the cardboard, and the French paper, and I love the glittering snowflake
and the two tiny bells, all adhered to the beautiful embossed card.



And this stunning  and most beautiful star ornement , with lovely old paper,
laces and fabric. What you can`t see here, is that is so gorgeously
glittering in the light.


Marie also spoiled me with these beauties, to play with myself,
in white felt ,-you can see the wonderful paper she used behind.


And here the wonderful big snowflake !


Just had to show you the star hanging here, on a birdcage in
my tv room. Thank you my dearest Marie, I so love the gifts from you,
they are both gorgeous, and so adorable.
Hugs to you my friend .


And to all of you whom might have time visiting,
I wish you a Merry,Merry Christmas,
happy hours and joy, the many coming days !!

Hugs and love
Dorthe
