New release at the color room

After a break we at back to share a new palette with you. And we also have some big changes:-)

The color room are merging with Scrap for Help, and we will incorporate a household item to use with the Palette, making the challenge even more fun, creative and 'green', using some of the throw away items in our crafting.  In the future we will incorporate Cynthia's vision of helping the community, to raise money here and there for worthy charities across the Globe, which we plan to do periodically.  So watch out for that too!!!


As Junkmail I've used some stamps and also a luggage tag from the vacation I've scrapped:-)

 I also used some Purple Pumpkin goodies on this page. I've used a pink ticket and a fabric button.

Supreme Scrap Tournament

I've listed up for a world wide tournament, called Supreme Scrap Tournament. The tasks are really challenging and the first two tasks were double layouts.. (NOT my strongest side)

First one:  1000 steps from home

Make a double layout or double mixed media project that shows where your live. 
But it all has to be within 1000 steps from your home!!!!
For example you could make photos of your favorite tree, busstop, house as long it is within 1000 steps of your home!

- You can not use any spray inkts!
- You will have to use at least 3 photos on your project (scrapbooking and mixed media!!)
- You will have to add a visible journaling of at least 50 words

Challenge 2 - Make a monochromatic colour layout

  • 1. Pages :                         2 pages Layout (double page!)

  • 2. Theme:                         You can choose your own theme

  • 3. Colour LO:                     The monochromatic color scheme you use is up to you

  • 4. How many Photos:        Minimum of 1 photo

  • 5. Photos:                         - One photo must be partly on the left and partly on the right page                                                                                                                                         -  One photo needs to be black and white
  • 6. Not to be used:              - You are restricted from using black anywhere on the layout including, ink, paint, pen lines, journaling or any other elements. 
                                           - There is not to be black on the page with the exception of your black and white photo(s).
                                           - You can not use brown to antique elements unless brown is the colour you choose for your monochromatic colour scheme.

  • 7. Materials you may use:   embellishments, inkt, media stuff, everything that you want in the monochromatic colour.

This was a big challenge for me as I don't make many double or monocromatic layouts. And it was So hard to not use any black;-) But using only one color can really turn out great! 
I decided to make a simple layout and used blue to fit the pictures of the girls bathing. I sprinkled some circles and letter stickers to mimic bubbles..

Art journals

It's not often I post my art journal pages so I thought I share some of my pages today.

I think I'm falling in love with art journaling. It's so free and careless and nothing is wrong. And it's a great way to practice on techniques.

Å for ei herlig scrappehelg! Det er så godt og få scrappa masse på ein gong:-) Tusen takk CASA for alle supre oppgåver:-)

What a great craft weekend! So much fun scrapping so much in a short weekend. Thank you CASA:-)

The first task was a quick tag. It had to be monocromatic and with the mothersday in mind. 

 Then there was a sketch from Scrapfriends. 

My take on the sketch: 

The challenge I liked the most was a lift of one of my favorite norwegian scrappers, Elis@beth.

Lots of Purple Pumpkin goodies on this one:-)

A card made by a using the colors of a gorgeous ocean colors palette:-) On this card I used one of my gorgeous Art Anthology paint and sprays:-)

A clean and simple layout. Sometimes I just love this style:-)

And last but not least some smashing:-D
