Listen, smile, agree…


I was sorting through some stuff on my desk and found a background I made last summer. It was kind of nice so I didn’t want to throw it out but not good enough for me to really feel inspired to use it. Yes, I’m kind of a squirrel. Don’t want to throw away anything that could come in handy. Anyways I started to put some more ink on it to make it better and it turned out really loud and very colorful and busy. so then I added a layer of gesso on top getting a dreamy kind of whitewash. By then I didnät think I actually would use it so I grabbed some gold paint and played around. Then I also added some glitter paint on top and even though it was far from my comfort zone I decided to use it.


I found this quote, I think by Robert Downey Jr., and just went with it. I will need some new alphas soon since they are running out of letters. I actually found a printed picture of me smiling (miracles can happen) and used that.


In the end the LO turned out kind of cool. And when I looked at the time on my phone it was almost 2 in the morning. On a school night. The time moves fast when you are having fun, right?

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
