Shrine Booklet : World Travel

I have been showing you various Shrines earlier.
Shrines are not only possible to be used as cards,
but also as booklets.

The one showed here is called Old World Travel and
it is one of the first projects i made.

I am therefor not showing it to you because
of its looks (i wud make it differently if i would
make one today) but purely for its fun form.

Maybe it will inspire you to make something similar.

Preservation Tip

Do you enjoy to use these kind of twigs as decoration
or for crafting projects ? If you want to preserve these
as they look now, with the velvet bits on it, you just
have to not put them im water. If you do they will sprout
and if you do not they will just dry the way they look now.

I [heart] Paris AB

I [heart] Paris so back in the days that we were
obsessed by altering books, i decided to do the theme
of my book for a Round Robin Paris-style. The
worst thing that can happen, did happen. The
book never arrived at the next person in the
cylce. At that time there was a lot of mail that
disappeared, there were probably some art-loving
people working at the TNTheadquarters.

Luckily i had scanned the pages i did for my book, but
even now, it has been ages, i can feel the anger
bubbling inside of me. Things that got lost in the
mail (or as i like to think, stolen) are selfmade
cards and ATC's, stamps that were exchanged
between artists, envelopes with embellishments
and fibers and Altered Books, sob. Anyways, here
are the scans of the pages that i would like to share
with you.

Søstrene Grene

This are images of one of my favorite shops : Søstrene Grene.
They have all kinds of things, even things you never knew
existed. They also sell lots of things that you can use for
creative purposes. I could not help myself and just had to
buy these rolls of ribbon.

A new animal

While we were taking a walk we met an animal we had
never met before, an Ermine (Hermelijn, Røyskatt).
At first we thought it was a white plastic bag that was
floating in the river, but no, it was this pretty animal.

If you want to read more about this animal, you can

She is crafty !! : Part III

My friend Jenifer has been very crafty lately.
She dressed up a bunch of rats with knitted scarves,
she made a mirror mosaic and knitted some more.
Versatile is the word for it.
